Black Nintendo Wii is Packaged and Hitting Japan on August 1st

50°
270w ago - August first is just around the corner, and that day is when the Black Nintendo Wii launches in Japan.

Admit it, it looks sweet (pictured below). That blue light on the face of the console amidst the solid black makes it look ultra modern.

Even the packaging looks classy.

The Black version of the Wii lands in Japan on August 1st for 25,000 (US$ 258).

Thanks to Hero of Legend of NeoGAF (linked above) for the news.
 

Fake Dragon Quest IX ROM Bricks Your Nintendo DS Console

250°
271w ago - A fake Dragon Quest IX ROM is currently in circulation online, and those who download and run the ROM can expect to receive a bricked Nintendo DS system.

The supposed rom is actually DarkFader's slideshow bricker released a few years back.

To quote from Triforce of DS-Scene (linked above):

Just a heads up in case anyone sees this release and gets excited, Dragon Quest IX JPN DSi Enhanced NDS iND is fake. Someone released it on 2chan claiming to have dumped the game early providing this image as proof the game was out.

In fact if you choose to check it out for yourself you will see it's actually a hentai slideshow called DS Owata. Images below are censored due to the graphic content.

I guess this was to be expected and has happened with a few other major releases in the past. The fake Zelda that retrohead (ds-scene's founder) released a couple of years ago springs to mind. Skip the small fry!

I cant believe I didn't notice this at first, I think this is actually the slideshow bricker DarkFader released years ago.

WiiElfFix v1.0: Load Nintendo SDK ELFs via the HBC on Wii

50°
271w ago - Today xorloser has released WiiElfFix v1.0, which is a small tool that will patch a Nintendo SDK compiled ELF file to boot via the Wii Homebrew Channel.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: The Homebrew Channel (HBC) was designed to be used with the Homebrew SDK aka [Register or Login to view links]. So any files you compile with devkitPro should load OK via the HBC.

If you try to load a file that was compiled with the Nintendo SDK however you will get an error that "This is not a valid Wii application". This is because the Homebrew Channel retrieves the load addresses for each ELF program segment from the Physical Address field, and in Nintendo SDK files this field is set to zero.

Hopefully the HBC guys will fix this in the next release, making the HBC more compatible. In the meantime you can use this little tool I made to patch your ELF file. It copies the values from the Virtual Address field into the Physical Address field for each program segment in your ELF file.

A bug fix to Wii Sports Resort, in which after playing a WiiWare/VC game off the SD card, and then playing Wii Sports Resort afterward, you would be forced to watch the how-to Wii Motion Plus video that normally plays only once on the initial play of Wii Sports Resort.

The usual warnings apply, updating is not recommended until more information is known about its effects on homebrew.

Bannerbomb is still working! You may check updates via Wiimposter Logs.
