Video: PS3 HDD-Supported Games running from the HDD

100°
332w ago - The video shows:

- Warhawk running from HDD
- no PKG version
- no WH disc while WH is running
- Motorstorm running as proxy disc
- legal way

I wont explain the details here till the project is finished 100%, also cuz many devs want to take a look at first and not get it patched that fast. I can say that if all will work like I want it to you'll need:





- "special" game dump of the game you want to play from HDD
- one (any) original bd game
- 2x minimum 60GB HDD's (illegal way - it worx but its not allowed in most countrys - its working like a packed game on psp memory stick)

OR

-1 60GB HDD + original disc (legal way - no need to be inserted while playing)

Im using newest firmware PAL 60GB SKU. 3 games tested yet - working.
Games which should be possible from the knowledge i got yet:

- Warhawk
- Motorstorm
- Resistance
- GT5
- COD3
- ...

I cant check more atm, as I dont have else here. The final way will be a bit different than the video shows. Even there are 2 different ways then to do it, thats because there are 2 different groups of games. One can be done with 1 HDD but then you need the original disk of the game.
 

Video: How to run Grand Theft Auto IV at 1080p!

500°
347w ago - Here is a little how-to guide on how to run Grand Theft Auto at 1080p on the PlayStation 3. If you have a 1080p set and the game keeps booting up in 720p all you need to do is disable the other resolutions, I will show you how to do that now...

Go to to the display option under settings
Select video output settings
Select HDMI
Select custom
Untick 1080i and 720p
Press X
Press X again
Select finish
Launch game

Please note that you need a 1080p HDTV in the 40" range and preferably connected via HDMI.

Here is a video:




 

PS3 GTA IV runs at Lower Resolution than X-Box 360

500°
348w ago - Some knowledgeable folks over at Beyond3D have found that the X-Box 360 version of GTA IV runs at a resolution of 720p (1280–720), but the PS3 version only runs at 630p (1120–630).

To quote Quaz51: Regardless PS3 media look better for me, the light and atmosphere is more real (maybe HDR vs X360 MDR, post-process...)

A game store employee reiterates stating: Played both versions in the game store last night where I work, both on 720p HDMI (PS3 HDMI output 1.3b, X-Box 360 HDMI output 1.2).

The PS3 version is smoother/better visually in my eyes, 360 had pop-up issues. Conclusion: PS3 installs to HDD, which everyone knows its faster than DVD9 disc.
 

Homebrew Pong running in Wii mode!

50°
358w ago - Just a few days ago, the Zelda: Twilight Princess exploit for Wii opened up the possibility to boot homebrew in Wii mode through a buffer overflow method.

Now homebrew developer Auby has extended this hack to load an ELF version of his PONG game which runs in Wii mode.

To quote: Current work in progress have made it possible to run ELF files from an SD card inserted in the GC card slot, and this is the result.

It's just my old Pong demo written for GameCube a long time ago. Controls doesn't work yet, and there are more to fix before a release, but at least things are moving forward.
 

Overhaul of net addresses begins

50°
360w ago - The first big steps on the road to overhauling the net's core addressing system have been taken.

On Monday the master address books for the net are being updated to include records prepared in a new format known as IP version 6.

Widespread use of this format will end the shortage of addresses that sites can be given.

The net's current addressing scheme is expected to exhaust the pool of unallocated addresses by 2011.

Short stack

Although people use words to navigate around the web, computers use numbers. A human may type news.bbc.co.uk into a browser bar but the PC trying to reach that site will use a numerical equivalent that it gets from the net's master address books.

At the moment the vast majority of numerical net addresses are written in a format specified by version 4 of the Internet Protocol (IPv4).

On 4 February the master or root servers for the net will have a small number of records added that are written in IP version 6 (IPv6) added to them.

This means for the first time that computers using IPv6, typically a PC and a server, can find each other without involving any IPv4 technology.

Paul Twomey, president of Icann which oversees the addressing system, told the BBC News website there was a need...
