Yeah that WiiWare folder was a godsend when I found it. So much good stuff in there.

I've not used any of the VC stuff myself (I don't think) but I did snag a load of the WiiWare games that are considered pretty good.

It's also the easiest way to get Mega Man 9 & 10 I think.

Emu served all my needs for years, very sad to see it go.

I'm a bit of a lurker more than poster but I'd appreciate a link too. Recently had my HDD full of Roms die on me and this would be a lifesaver!

Yeah I'm super grateful for this! I once spent a miserable evening trying to rip my WiiWare games from my Wii U to no avail. Wanna play Castlevania and Contra Rebirth with acceptable image quality :D

Yeah the WiiWare stuff is awesome.

Upload wise all the non-disc based systems are now completely uploaded (I believe). So there is a substantial library of stuff, up to and including the DS, ready to go. Disc based stuff will continue to upload slowly over time, but hopefully we're not talking too long for it now.

I've removed the Wii U folder for the time being as I work on simplifying things with it. Currently it's full of folder dumps which are messy and difficult to read. Games and DLC are spread over several locations within it and it's really not very intuitive at all. This is a side effect of using the Wii U USB Helper, which is currently not working for a large number of people.

I've been playing about trying to get Wii U USB Helper working with no success, which sucks because it was the easiest way to get a lot of Wii U and 3DS games. Mostly I'm looking into a way to repackage the Wii U and 3DS games I have, because just now they are folder dumps, which just don't work nicely for a google drive upload. I've found a site that seems to work and I've gotten a single-file copy of Mario Kart 8 to run, so I'm planning on getting more games from there to replace the dumps I currently have. I'll keep things updated as I do.

As an aside I saw this earlier on today:



So I'll be looking at getting some Xbox games added in the near future.

No, they should all be there.

I've just checked the link in a private browser window (So I'm not signed in) and the folders for all three of them are there, with games in them.

Amstrad is under "Amstrad CPC", Mega Drive is under "Sega Genesis" and SNES is under "Super Nintendo Entertainment System".

Try refreshing the page and check again. If not send me a screenshot.

Yeah I'm not seeing some either, I'll try checking on another machine in case there's anything odd going on with caching.

It's weird that it's not showing up for some of you.

Try and clear your cache's and then load it up again. If it's still not appearing let me know and I'll see if I can figure it out.

I had one of those ages ago but I ended up losing it.

Think I'll probably jailbreak my 3DS sometime soon with it starting to be on the wane now. Not sure which firmware is the most recent to be jailbroken, but I can't see there being much need to update firmware going forward.

Tried out that Xbox emulator just there (CXBX Reloaded) and wow.

It's very, very early days on it, but it's fantastic to see progress finally being made on this system.

Got Jet Set Radio Future working near perfectly (apart from some light graphics glitches) and it's really cool.

There's no way to upscale the games yet (That I can see) so it's at 640x480 and jaggy as hell, but it's fast, it's playable and it feels right as well.

Can't wait to play Timesplitters and Ralisport Challenge!

I think my OG Xbox may still be at my Mum's somewhere but I don't think the games are...

Yeah I'd hold your breath for the moment. Compatibility is still very spotty. My understanding is that JSRF was something of a "target" game for them, so they've managed to make some serious progress with that.

I think it'll come. Between this and the other emulator mentioned in the video I posted earlier it's the most active I've ever seen Xbox emulation.

Do you mean a different game, because Timesplitters is just on PS2. And Timesplitters 2/3 are on PS2/GC too and I imagine pretty playable on their respective emulators.

The latest firmware, it looks like, but for the last few updates installing custom firmware looks like a bit of a hassle. The guide's here. If for some reason you have firmware between 9.0-11.3 then lucky you, you can use the soundhax method which I used and it's pretty straight-forward. And then as long as you have the latest custom firmware it'll be safe to update.

No one is mentioning it so I'm going to assume that the issues with the Google Drive have resolved themselves at this point.

The upload continues quite well. PS2 games seem to be taking a back seat for now, with PS1 seemingly being the priority. These are substantially smaller (CD vs DVD after all) so they should get up much faster.

I've not updated the spreadsheet, but I have a couple of new additions from the past few days.

There are now a couple of Xbox and Xbox 360 games due to some developments within their respective scenes.

Once they've uploaded you'll find:

Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox)
Shenmue II (Xbox)
Dead Or Alive 3 (Xbox)
Castle Crashers (Xbox 360)
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World (Xbox 360)

Xbox games should be played on CXBX Reloaded and 360 games on Xenia. Both are still very early and while they can play the games above quite well most games are still pretty much unplayable. Xenia especially can only really handle 2D stuff right now and I need to find a workaround that lets them play as the full games, rather than the XBLA trials. Xenia also needs a graphics card that supports Vulkan. Exciting times though.

EDIT: I'm also beginning to sort out my Arcade ROMS. Once I've got it down to the basic games (I.e no clones, card games, gambling machines, porn games etc) then I'll start uploading them, but this will be after the main upload has finished.

I forgot about Gals Panic. Might bring that one in.

If there's a demand for all the nudey Mahjong games I'll add them as well.
