And the guy asked if he could play his PS2 games on his PS3 .. it doesn't matter whether it's HW or SW compatibility, he still can =)
I recommend this to all people who need play some old-school PS2 games on (can't believe we are referring to PS2 games now as 'last-gen' or 'old-school' but hey) -
get a fat PS2, buy one of those old IDE HDDs, get a memory card, find some way to put FreeMcBoot on that thing, then get HDDLoader on it (or Open PS2 Loader, whatever) - and never look back. You can't really wish for anything better than that - perhaps upscaling or a PS2 with hardware BC - otherwise, nothing else comes close.
On the topic of completion the main thing holding us back is lack of hardware, I am waiting at the moment for my flashing hardware to arrive and I have paid for my TEST console but still need $350 for delivery to get it from the otherside of the world.
I think it would be irresponsible/selfish of me to expect other people to test potential PS3 bricker modifications when I am quite capable of testing it myself once the equipment arrives.
You are entitled to your opinion on the release of REBUG, I won't try to take that from you but attacks on our ability/credibility from other members and yourself to a part, is a bit low.
Did you know that I was doing the self analysis for Mr Anonymous on Self_Rebuilder (The proper self/sprx signing tool based off of fail0verflow's incomplete work and used in 'ps3mfw builder' for those that don't know)?
Or that I obtained the entire 341 & 350 DEX dev_flash1,2,3 (before f0f tools) without using any ldr's but instead service mode, FTP and a small glitch in the system I found using a retail console? (Of course it was a little more involved than that). fail0verflow's tools were released shortly after leaving my method redundant but before the easy way, I made my own way and didn't sit and wait for it to be handed to me.
My point is, calling out our ability on a project that to our own admission is incomplete and can't move forward at the moment for very valid reasons (lack of hardware and finance to obtain it in our case) is wrong and not unlike what people do to you everyday.
You know you are capable, you don't feel the need to prove your claims to others and this is fine, I am right with you there but why do you project on to us the same thing that pi$$es you off everyday, a call out on your ability/credibility, who you are and what you stand for?
I'm not here to fight, prove myself or fame. I just enjoy my project and the 1000's of emails I got over the last few months after the first release (which DIDN'T have dev network access) asking for a 3.55 release (network access was rarely mentioned in these emails) told me that others did to. Not to mention the 1.4 million hits in the first 2 days of the first release showed that there was definately more legitimate interest than just a handful of people. Even at 1% that is still 14000 people that want to see it happen.
Tanks for reply guy. I remember a trick with DEX 2.30 FW that let you play PS2 games from any region. So i ask myself if it's possible to do with a CEX. Cos i have a lot of PS2 games and of course i have a PS2 and BB and an IDE HDD.
I con't remember where i've read about this trick but you have to swap HDD and you can install Debug FW on 2.30 retail. Then, you can play PS2 games from any region.:chinscrat
You know what ? I happen to know Mr Anonymous (that's obviously not his real nick though) and I talked to him no later than this afternoon regarding that very matter, not only did he tell me that you never helped him a bit (basically he told me that all you ever did was to test his tools) but that he didn't like your latest Rebug release either... (Ask him yourself if you doubt me, though to be honest that didn't surprise me at all), not that I don't have my own flavor of makeself anyway...
So you mean you've used psgroove (you know that's something I've had a lot to do with, right?) and you've ported a couple of patches so it runs on DEX (hell, you only need to port the syscall patch) and then grabbed the /dev_flash (probably using cellftp). WOW ! Respect !!! /sarcasms detected... (Yes, I know exactly how you've dumped that /dev_flash)
Lines of code written for this task: none.
Do you know how many people had the DEX /dev_flash dumped for YEARS ? (Hint: TONS, hell, I even had the retail one back then...) In fact this is so easy to do (Especially the DEX version) that I wouldn't even try to claim any credits for this... (Seriously, even DemonHades had that stuff...) In fact when you did just now, it spread a lot of doubts in my mind concerning your ability to actually code something...(Yes, I am serious, that's even what's made me reply to this post)
In fact even if you did it (which to be honest is nothing of an achievement anyway), can you even prove any of it ?
Have you ever coded or reversed anything of your own ? (No I am not talking about replacing the /dev_flash to one from a debug PUP and doing a bit of xml and rco editing here and there (and calling yourself a "l33t h4xx0r", there, I've said it))
You should seriously consider not comparing your e-penis with mine, it's getting freaking ridiculous... (Honestly, I am not the only one laughing right now)
You give a nuke to a bunch of irresponsible people (I am polite here), yet you don't have the slightest idea of what a nuke is actually for. (Until it's too late and it actually blows off). Of course you did so despite the fact that people (who, unlike you, know what they are doing) have warned you about the fact that the consequences might be worse than you'd ever anticipate.
You damn well knew this was going to end up with people using rebug for warez, it wouldn't even surprised me if it was released for warez in the first place, even if it wasn't, it certainly doesn't look like it.
You don't give a nuke to everyone in the hope that 1% might use it wisely while the rest of the world starts blowing up... (just my 2 cents here...)
P.S. Now you know how I can really be when I want to be an ass (and I am never an ass with no reasons, it usually happens when someone REALLY pissed me off.)
You've wanted truth, I've blasted it to your face. I am done being complaisant or understanding, when I screw up I just say so, I don't try to hide behind an illogic argument and show off some laughable "hacks" for it.
Do you want me to do an actual analysis of what's really behind Rebug or shall I stop here ?
Seriously, I am done posting on that thread, this is getting ridiculously dumb.
any new version coming bro?
Math who the hell do you think you are telling people what to release and what not to release. Go neck yourself mate. P.S can a mod ban that clown!!!
this is far more important you see - wasting your precious time on a forum getting into bitchfights - posts that take at least 10-20 minutes to write - far more productive use of your time.
Keeping everything in-house so only a small clique can use it - see no problem with that either. The funny thing about all this is - the kind of mentality that has been portrayed in this thread so far by the 'usual suspects' - BETRAYS to a tee the exact same kind of infantile infighting and mudslinging which happens at professional 'warez' scenes - where group A starts slinging mud at group B and declaring infantile Internet wars to the extent that 'cracker A is shit' and 'cracker B is shit' - they have this saying that you become what you hate.
Hell, even the word 'NUKE' popped up. Nuke analogies are never far removed in warez circles - perhaps somebody watched an episode of 24 for too long yesterday and started believing terrorists running around with suitcase nukes is real instead of a fantasy. Probably feeds into the Islamophobia over there in France.
It's true that every scene needs some drama to keep it interesting - I often catch myself simply enjoying watching these bitch fights unfold. But with the PS3 scene, it's like 'drama' is ALL there ever is - without even any of the redeeming aspects that makes people put up with all the crap and the socially backwards traits of your average dev.
The PS3 scene is like one big, overlong, badly acted high school re-enactment of 'Romeo and Juliet'. If we aren't going to get jobs out of this after all, at least some of us can have a few Razzies thrown our way for 'worst online drama performance ever'.
This is what its like in the scene now:D:D
and there he is blaming devs claiming that "they would be the next target for sony"..
the hypocrisy is unbelievable.. bet he's an undercover pirate aswell.. :lol:
