HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!

2015 is the year NESWORLD turns 20! I can't believe it's been 20 years since I started the site as a HTML coding project at school. Initially the "site" was a poorly written fanzine called NES Journal which only lasted a few releases, and then NESWORLD took over at September 1st 1995 :-)

Well thanks for visiting and happy new year :-)

SMALL ARTICLE ON NINJHAX, THE 3DS EXPLOIT
December 23rd, 2014 - 6:39 pm - Posted by Martin 0 comments

Heya and Merry Christmas! :-)

So I've finally managed to cram out something new for the website. I've been following the Ninjhax exploit for some time now, and if you're into 3DS you know what I'm talking about. If you do not know then why not check out my new page about the Ninjhax and Nintendos race to stop it.

More to come at some point ;-)

64DRIVE FIRMWARE 2.0 RELEASED
December 16th, 2014 - 5:57 pm - Posted by Martin 0 comments

Marshallh, author of the 64drive, has just released the 2.0 firmware to the public and the features are:
 

  • New Save Writeback (SWB) module flushes changes in savedata to memory card in real time. All save types are supported.
  • Revamped SD controller supports 50MHz and slower modes, more than doubling access speeds. Writing long runs of multiple blocks is now supported and utilized by the SWB, no longer causing potential data loss on some SD cards.
  • CompactFlash controller works at full speed on more cards. Microdrives may no longer work.
  • USB module has full access to all save data slots and cartridge ROM. It can now load/dump at the same time a game is executing with no data loss. Firmware and bootloader upgrades come in a new format that should eliminate any chance of bricking. Transfer speeds are the same as before.
  • Removed CI command “Single sector to RAM”, use the Multiple command with a length of 1.
  • Fixed support for Pokémon Stadium 2 FlashRAM saving. Pokedex previews are now properly animated.
  • Increased timing margins on Flash/SRAM emulation.
  • Updated EEPROM emulation so that Donkey Kong 64 no longer experiences savedata loss.
  • Upgrading to other 2.xx firmware with just a N64 is now possible. USB is also still supported.


The new firmware is available for download from retroactive (the 64drive website)

XMAS NES CART 2014
December 8th, 2014 - 3:30 pm - Posted by Martin 0 comments

A long overdue update and I bet it comes as no surprise to most that RetroUSB (RetroZone) has yet another Xmas cart out this year for the NES, the SNES counterpart sadly only lasted for a few years and yet again there is no SNES version.

The Xmas 2014 NES cart features a game called Killer Queen Arcade and is probably the most fustrating xmas game to date, or maybe I just suck at playing it.

If you've like to own a copy, remember they're only available until the end of December. The standard cart is $44, but for $8 extra you are able to add custom text to the rom, making it one of a kind - unless someone else makes writes the same text hah.

The xmas cart is available here...

Well I've updated the Xmas cart page with the new release.

On a side note I'd like to thank those of you who have left a comment in my previous "twins" post :-)

SITE STATUS
November 18th, 2014 - 5:13 pm - Posted by Martin 4 comments
I'm deeply sorry for the lack of updates here, but I guess the site is currently in (has to be in) hiatus. I have way too much stuff going on in my family life right now to really work on the site. My wife gave birth to twins 4 months back and having 3 kids now is... a lot of work :-)
 
Because of the family expansion I've had to relocate my game room and I'm now getting to the point where the computer and the "nesworld office" is actually usable, hehe.
 
So whenever I have the time and energy, I'll try to work on something to keep the site alive, but don't expect a whole lot really as I'm a bit worn out these days.
 
... Sorry, but I hope everyone will stop by every now and then still...
 
To those of you who have mailed me about various homebrew projects and such, I'm really really sorry for not responding.
