Demul on my Pinball

I got MAME running, but I wanted more..
So I tried loading Demul.

This didn’t go like I wanted at first needed to edit the script use a hidden command in pin popper to load the playfield “bezel”

But before I did that I needed to fit it on the screen,
I don’t know if I want to play on the playfield like I do now.
For now its ok but maybe I will change it in the future.
To make it work I needed to install windows app.
Found a good one that works, but after running it I found out that
I lost focus so I wrote a Autokey script to keep it ontop and press f3 to remove the menu bar in window view..
Script and hidden command for keeping playfield running below.
Here is a video how it resizes:

Here are some pictures of the 2 games I have running for now:

Made some backglasses for them and DMD images..
Wanted to use video, but found nothing fitting…

Will upload the script and tools later.

Pinball Update

Ok it’s time for a little update on the Pinball Machine.
Stopped using Hyperpin and moved over to PinUP popper and PinPlayer.
Its the future for Visual pinball…

After installing a new screen for the backglass I started searching for a new Frontend

and that is how I found out about PinUP popper.

Then the updates happend very quick:

After some tweaking I was able to install it and get it running on my Cab.

Here is video of the update.

Some pictures:

It has legs! Starting to keep it clean inside
Mame Pup Video's PinUP Player PUP video
Colored DMD
– You can find PinUP popper frontend. if you follow the link.
Suggest you read the wiki a few times…- I made me some custom DMD overlays because of my 2 screensetup.
Been using DMDoverlay  but need to change the size here and there.
So we made some custom overlays download link below.

You can find my Custom overlay DMD’s  in my mega.co.nz folder.

– I wanted to add some Mame games.
Looked up some TATE games and now I have about 124 games.
Here is my game list ( Pastbin). PinUP popper got a nice search feature for pinball tables.
But for MAME games it will not work so i made my Wheels, DMD, etc myself.
Used the autorecorder for the playfield recording.
Here are someimages of my Mame wheel images:

You can find my Custom Mame Wheels  in my mega.co.nz folder.

– I also needed custom DMD’s for my Mame games:

You can find my Custom Mame  DMDS  in my mega.co.nz folder.

And of course I needed backglasses our Marquee but because of most
of the marquee images would be on the DMD I wanted to add Video’s.


Searched on youtube and (p)ornhub to find some useable video clips
Yes (p)ornhub apparently lots of TATE games are hot girls games 😀
So little warning for the videos not all are Safe for under 18 😉
Did a little editing on them but not enough to call it ready.
But i will share them and update them if i have time.
Schermafbeelding 2020-03-01 om 10.52.38
You can find my Custom Mame videos in my mega.co.nz folder.

Install my images and videos in your default mame popvideo folder.

They are already named correct, if you use the same romset.
Didn’t use a rom organiser, so there can be errors.
See my game list at pastbin for the names I used.

Wheel images > Wheel
DMD images > DMD
Video images >  BackGlass

Wip: Syscheck 0.0.1

I am working on something else.

s1

 

Just something to check what extra things are installed on your switch.
s2

Before making this I did’t know that I have Sys-FTPD installed 😀

But its still in Dev fase need to find out how to write better to a txt.
My methode works and it doesnt work. Get output but not the correct 😀
Got it working by cheating in the code….
s3
But it works.. SysCheck.txt gets created and holds the right information
Added ; so you could load it in as a csv..

s4

Plus some self promotion, and the credits will be added soon.
Need to check this firs 😀 sorry guys

Will not release this at this moment because of:
Banner
Since Atmosphère 0.10.1  changed the folders for these programs.
Atmosphere will move them at start up so the user will not notice.

So its not anymore in titles like in 0.9.4 but in contents,
I need to rewrite the checks code for 0.10.0 this is a easy fix but still something to do.

And i did’t expected this move of Atmosphere..

But if you can compile, you can download it from github Dcnigma SysCheck

Owell

ULaunch 0.2 release

Two weeks ago uLaunch 0.2 came out by XorTroll

I like uLaunch a lot it suppresses a lot of warnings.
(so no accedently update to 9.1.0 Like i did when I was on 8…)

Its a bit slower then the normal dashboard but i get used to that.

What I miss is quick scroll action or so like: 10 apps in once if you press up
This way I can access the ftp app easy.

But a quick acess buttonftp on top is also sweet.

So that is what i made if you want My modded version of uLaunch 0.2 follow the link.
Install same way as for uLaunch, in Atmosphere > titles folder.
(not for Atmosphère 0.10.1  XorTroll is still working on it.)
I also have a  Logo Amiibo button for quick access.
Next I could try making it more dynamic so you could load 2 custom apps of choose. 
 drawing
drawing

Skinners can move the icons if they use ftp_icon amiibo_icon in the json file:

        "ftp_icon": {  
  "x": 40,  
  "y": 80,  
},  

Also there is a bug in my version for the album it will load homebrew menu in applet mode. drawing
But i guess this is part fault in the way I load the apps.
Need to investigate that more “more research is needed”.

Going to try and see what happens if i load album from a menu icon.
my guts says it will load hbmenu but we will see.

Cheers Dcn

IPhone vs iCloud lock

I gotten a iPhone from a friend that he found, but it was iCloud locked.

At the time there were no iCloud bypase exploits
Today there are:
Checkra1n iCloud Bypass Package
Apple Tech 752 Bypass Tool V3
iCloudOFF Backup v1 (activated devices ONLY)
Dr Fone Switch (for iOS 11 iCloud Bypass)
3u tools (for iOS 11 iCloud Bypass)
Xampp Files (For Bypassing iCloud in iTunes)
MDM Bypass Tools
iPhone 4s iOS 6.1.3 iPSW (for downgrading and iCloud Bypassing)
Evasi0n7 OS X (Jailbreak tool for iOS 7.x.x)
Evasi0n7 WINDOWS (Jailbreak tool for iOS 7.x.x)
CFW Bypass Tools (for CFW iCloud Bypass)
libimobiledevice MinGW Build (best for CFWs and downgrades)
Redsn0w (Good for retrieving ICIDs, DFU mode, and older jailbreaks)
Firmware keys and ipsw downloads
DMG extract/build tool OS X (for iOS 9 and below, iOS 10 is already decrypted)
DMG extract/build tool WINDOWS (for iOS 9 and below, iOS 10 is already decrypted)
SSH Ramdisk Tool (For iPhone 4 iCloud bypass)
WinSCP (Windows only) (For iPhone 4 iCloud bypass)
RecBOOT OS X (For iPhone 4 iCloud bypass)
RecBOOT WINDOWS (For iPhone 4 iCloud bypass)
TinyUmbrella (GREAT for saving shsh blobs!)
Geeksn0w v.2.9 (One click iCloud bypass and jailbreak for iPhone 4!)
My iPhone 4s CFW for iOS 9.3.5 (Not compatible with all devices, I am not responsible for restore errors.)
Free IMEI iCloud checker (An alternative to Apples long gone activation lock status tool)
CopyTrans Manager (For free music without iTunes)

But that is not the reason I write this.
Because iCloud lock is been removed already :-S

Today i turn on the iPhone and it seems its been removed.
My guess is that the previeus owner removed the iPhone from his iCloud account.

And the only reason why he would do it is because of Apple will only allow 5 device / account.

So if you own all 5 devices. iPhone, Macbook/pro air , Apple Watch, iPad and  iMac.
Total Apple Fan boy! = no protection!

Your screwed if you lose one of your device and replace it with a new one,
you lose the lock and the finder can use your iPhone.

Since Checkra1n is the new jailbreak to go I did that and installed and rsyncd the hole iPhone
to my computer.
Just to look, the first time I wiped the data. But its cool to see the whole layout of the iphone.

uLaunch Mod (amiibo)

uLaunch is cool but it really could use a quick amiibo Logoselect button  😉
2019111921584900-2B962D4D8757B83A365B36F9DBA36413

I noticed that uLaunch would let you run AAA title in background the would stay on,
while I was running homebrew. So I thought would it load amiiboswap to? And yes it does  😀

Here is a quick video I made using Shovel Knight (Treasure Trove) as example.


Working mod, for my self! 😀

Uses:
Emuiibo
-Amiibo Swap  (v1) I use (v1.1b GBAtemp account needed!)
  Amiibo Swap most be in this folder: /switch/AmiiSwap/AmiiSwap.nro
iaKIvzc

If you use Amiibo’s in a game that needs to store data back to the amiibo disable Random UUID

2019121404381300-F8D087CFC849713C76A06A954E9486D3
Next thing to learn add the About button back in,  i modded that to launch Amiibo Swap

Ok found out how it works:
Added something new to, easy FTPd access!

Release: DC uLaunch Updater

alt text
My first real useful homebrew app for the Nintendo Switch.
This is what happens when you watch 2h youtube tutorials of a 4h course.
Youtube C++ Tutorial for Beginners.

Video clip showing it in action:

Uses:

- Install/update uLaunch.  
- Remove uLaunch.  
- Install extra Themes.  
- In app update.  
- Reboot to payload.  

uLaunch Screenshot (icon):

alt text . When uLaunch came out I was very excited to try it out, it looks very promising like the design.
Open source and I guess there will be loads of new features in the future.

But it's still in beta 0.1 so its not realy stable, not that I found breaking bugs.   

So I wanted a easy way to remove it and re-install it without re-ftp or sdswap.
Started my journey in to Switch develepment just this month and I really like the progress I made.

Here are some screenshots:

Main Menu:

alt text

Download:

alt text

Nice progress menu.

Install complete!

alt text

Like the screenshot says use Reboot Payload to do restart in to uLaunch.

De-Intsall!

alt text

De-Install complete:

alt text This will only De-Install the Titles, not the users information at ”/uLaunch/” Themes will not be deleted.
Like the screenshot says use Reboot Payload to do restart in to uLaunch.

Install Extra Themes!

alt text
Themes will appeare directly after closing app in uLauch theme selector.
You need to restart uLaunch to apply the theme.
Use Reboot Payload to do so.

Disable or Enable uLaunch!

alt text
Disable or Enable uLaunch without deleting it. Title folders will be moved except for 0100000000001000 only the exefs.nsp file will be moved.
And as bonus Included all Themes that are in the Showcase.

 

In App Update!

alt text
Just restart after download and if there is a new version this one will be started.

Reboot to Payload!

alt text

Homebrew Menu launch icon corrupt.

alt text

Like you can see the Icon shows “!” because I used a icon.png and not icon.jpg.
In uLauch my png icon is showing correct but not in Homebrew Menu

Installation:

This is very simple just download the DC-uLaunch_Updater.nro
and create and place in your /switch/Ulaunch-update/ folder.
alt text
And then your done launch from HBmenu or uLaunch.

Themes:

Some example screenshots of KarmicBacklash Themes.

Red.
alt text

Minty Green.
alt text

Warning this is only for Atmosphere CFW!

Install will not work on other CFW! Only tested it on my Switch so I don’t take responsibility if something happens to your switch.

Todo:

  • Remove /SDout/ folder after installation. (folder is empty) just need to remove the folder.
  • Give names of references a logic name in the code.
  • Decide if will use a png icon or not.
  • Give propper credits to everyone in README.md
  • Clean up MACOS_ folders that are created by unzipping. (or upload only cleaned zips)
