Dreancast: Daytona USA 2001 Online.

DT Logo

Did a quick packet capture for Daytona USA.

Download the captures form my G-Drive

But I found a few IPs and ports:

185.94.111.1:46287 (MEMCACHE Continuation):
Stats

Looks like chat protocol used maybe IRC like I have seen that they use that for other games too.

Here are the ips for TCP
45.82.153.2:40695
46.3.96.69:45036
5.188.87.19:45442

Full info of the 3 IPs below:

Getting most of my consoles back online.

Xlink Kai Logo

Today I finished the install of Xlink Kai on Raspberry Pi.
UI Kai

There were a few things that made the install not that easy.
First of my user name was not ready did’t use the account that much so the email address was not correct.
Apparently it was linkt to my first email address that i own around 1998 till 2003 forgot that I got that 😀
After sorting that out with CrunchBite I could start on this project.

I installed it on my last available Raspberry a first gen. (Raspberry pi 1 B) 😀

So I Downloaded the newest and greatest version.
From the Xlink website.
Or ssh in to your Pi and use curl to download direct to the Pi

curl https://cdn.teamxlink.co.uk/binary/kaiEngine-7.4.33-rev767.headless.ARM.tar.gz --output kaiEngine-7.4.33-rev767.headless.ARM.tar.gz

Then extract it:
tar -zxvf kaiEngine-7.4.33-rev767.headless.ARM.tar.gz
x kaiEngine-7.4.33/
x kaiEngine-7.4.33/runforever.sh
x kaiEngine-7.4.33/kaiengine_arm
x kaiEngine-7.4.33/README

Then a sudo ./kaiengine_arm to test it:
Kai Boot
Open a browser and load the ip of your pi + port (http://192.168.1.xxx:34522/)
Then check >  Metrics 

Ok, I lied. I have a beta version (7.4.34)

Remember de Public port (44492) you will need it later.

If everything is working like it should you can make it auto boot edit
sudo nano /etc/rc.local

and added sudo screen -DmS kaiengine /home/pi/launchkai.sh above the exit line

After this your almost ready, because there needs to be some port forwarding (for me I did and have upnp on) :

Schermafbeelding 2019-06-15 om 21.02.06

When you join a room and nobody got a connection, this is mostly because the port that is need is not open.
the UI is on port 34522 but we don’t need this outside our house.
I did enabled Pat because I have 1 public ip and more xbox’s

Settings
Settings of Xlink Kai

but the public port in my case is 44492 (Remember Metrics)  so after changing this in my router:

I get everybody connected and see also ping status.  😀

UI Kai

So after that, boot up Halo 2.
Halo_2_Logo

And after selecting System Link a got a lot of games to join:


Happy Happy Joy Joy

Halo2 online

No lets get my ass kick by some PRO halo players 😀
giphy (1)

Outcome: Dcnigma 1 other player 20 😛 😛 Omg I need to practice < :-)

Xlink Kai works perfect and is nice add-on for my xbox’s need to test other consoles later.

Code BugAlso i found a little bug:
if your password is contains a = symbol this will break auto login.
When you save your password in the config it will cut your password.

There is a DISCORD INVITE
https://discord.gg/mj44JWy

 

Now all my Raspberry Pi’s have a purpose.

  1. Oric Atmos 1     (RetroPie 4.4 (Raspberry Pi Zero first Gen))
  2. Xlink Kai           (Raspbian stretch lite (Raspberry pi 1 B))
  3. GameBoy Pi      (RetroPie 4.4 (Raspberry pi 2 B+))
  4. DreamPi             (DreamPi 1.7 (Raspberry pi 2 B+))
  5. Nes PI                 (RetroPie 4.4 (Raspberry pi 3 B+))

Powerd by Raspberry Pi

It’s time that the Raspberry Pi Foundation release a new pi 😀

I probably would get Kai running along DreamPi
but thats something I will test later.

Back to some Halo 2

After this log I connect the power to my line inducer when i connect it before it’s started dreampi crashes because it cant find the modem.

Just a test when i connect to Quake 3 servers

Solved D6200 Reboot loop (EEPROM Reset)

sammygo

Hey Boy´s and Girls Today i tried to get PVR running on my Samsung UE46D6200TSXXN and failed horrible.
I have changed the model the location and region I made some backups of my service screen.
A result of that is that my tv now keeps rebooting at splash screen of smart tv:
See this movie.  So after few min I realize its a brick 😮 Of-course i made a backup using the Hospitality mode
Only one thing there is no way to load it back because of the reboot issue

I think the TV`s RS232 mode is on not sure but I don´t have a working Ex-Link Cable for C/D Series at hand so that option is out for now.

So I Tried the UnBricking TV by EEPROM Reset from the wiki:
Before trying the EEPROM reset, please try a this factory reset, that might revive your TV also.
Press “EXIT” button for 12 seconds (15 is better since you cannot see TV), than press “Left” and “Enter”
I tried this for a half hour or so but no luck the TV reboots before getting to 15 seconds.

The only thing to do was attaching the wires. first of locate the EEPROM
Here are some pictures of my TV maybe handy for the wiki:


I used a button because i got a feeling i need to do this more than once

So after everything is connected time to test it info from the wiki: power on TV and hold about for 20 seconds with the TV powered.
It just try to read (wrong) settings from EEPROM, since it cannot read anything, just start with defaults. That is what we want.
Than releasing SDA line and shutting TV off will update the settings on EEPROM with null values, that TV could boot with it.
After all, you can enter service menu and change the required changes
But for me its not working, when I turn on the switch, and making the connection the only thing that happens is the Smart TV logo turns upside down,
so there is something happening i made also a video
Did i forgot something?
is my wire to long?
can´t I use a button?
I have a few questions if someone got some answers for me that would help me a lot
Also i made a 1-1 copy of my samsungtv FTP in 2012 its 1,29 GB (1.387.958.272 bytes) 20.338 Files, 1.898 Folders

Thanks in Advance

For all of my pictures of my samsung UE46D6200TSXXN Take a look at my flickr

The Solution

Wait Longer… :-)

First time I turned on the tv right a way and waited 20sec when EEPROM was bridged then turned it of and switched it back to normal tv.
This did´t work..

Next time I powered my TV on waited about 30 to 60 sec then turned on the TV waited also 30 seconds then switched the switch to normal mode
and the very welcoming Samsung statement was greeting me to change the settings in service menu.
Connected my Lan cable opened service menu send the factory button and the 3x forward command and changed everything back
thank god for the backup pictures I made

Half Life² Survivor Ver 2.0 PC version

Show and Tell!

A time a go I edit the textures of Half Life² Survivor Ver 2.0 Japanese to English

A demo of this can be found on Youtube.
Will release the Texture pack a soon if there are enough viewers.

After messing around in the textures I started messing in the DLL files and found more stuff to translate.
Or Fix coin error fixed no more shutdown etc.

So I focused on that and found very good information :-)

But I am also working on some other things giving the game more gameplay or features.

First of the show of is the Battle map level selector:

Because if you play the game you will always play the same battle if I use my tool?
The game will change the battle every 300 seconds.


Change every map setting


If you have 2 screens like me, then you can enable the Marquee option.
Set the Location and the size you want:

 

This will give you a preview of the map that is loaded.

Written the code in VBA.
