My Oric 1 Pi zero case :-D

Meet the Oric Atmos 1

Today it was father’s day and I wanted to make something special for my dad.
Back in the 80’s my dad got the Oric II and he still got it (and operational).
Oric_Atmos_System_s1
So why not give him the Oric 1 mini 😀 the nes mini theme would go good with this in retropie.
It was also my first computer, so after some searching I found a Oric 1 model that I could use for this.

Load that model in to ThinkerCad and a Raspberry Pi zero model, just for size’s.

Added retropie installed the Oric emulator and added the roms.

Oric Atmos theme that i made for the Nes-mini theme:

Download link: Oric Atoms. (oops include the psd.. systembackground.png is a psd)

Location of the themes: /etc/emulationstation/themes/(nes-mini)

My dad/mom loved The Oric 1 mini 😀

Printed the model and painted it in the original colors.

Print the logo label and stick it on using glue. o1logo1

Had some trouble getting Dreampi working so I checkt the syslog:

I need to wait to connect the the line inducer until Dreampi is started.

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

N64 Super Bowsette

Render055_bowsette_princess_bowser_by_edgina36-dcnpfrn

I Did some Rom Modding.. (again) 😀
Found this Rom made by Kaze Emanuar (Download)

Like the concept of it, but it was laking some extra textures..
So I added some more 2 make it more Bowsette like…
Still work in progress no release plannend for now.
So there is now Download link for now.

  

Here are some screenshot of the textures, I changed so far:

Some in game screenshots:
 

I use N64Rip to change the in game graphics:
Good link for information on those textures, you will need a Hex Calculator to count the hex values together.

 

Did also some text editing changed Mario in to Bowsette.

Just started N64 Rom modding so still checking out the tools and most of them don’t work on OSX. (10.14.5)
Found a few that run well under playonmac.

Got bored and made a nice box art for it:

Credits for the nice background Pixiltales..
Needed for my Retropie 😀

NES-Pi + Custom Amiibo (sort of)

RetroPieWebsiteLogo

New weekend project that I made:
Last year I a got a NES case of a co-worker, I did’t know what to do with it, until now…

IMG_3365 IMG_3370
Empty case, only the top and bottom and the buttons.  perfect for a Raspberry pi project….
The last weekend I started printing heavy on my Anycubric Photon.

  IMG_3382
And it felt if i was making Amiibo’s

After seeing the second picture above I got inspired to make a new RetroPie console.
Needed to be RFID and controller…
Left the NES case and the semi setup  Right a working setup only no working code at that point.
Even the RFID would’t read the cards because of the SPI-PY  its sort of broken.

IMG_3369   IMG_3420

How to connect?
DIY-RFID-Doggy-Door-Circuit-Schematic-w_-LED_Fig1 6IW3b-1

First install SPI-PY (git clone https://github.com/lthiery/SPI-Py.git) then rolle back:

git clone https://github.com/lthiery/SPI-Py.git
git checkout 8cce26b9ee6e69eb041e9d5665944b88688fca68
sudo python setup.py install

If you do that! Then and only then, you can get the RFID-RC533 working under latest Jessy or RetroPie latest build.
Then you can install the MFRC522 Library and start reading some card data.
IMG_3418 IMG_3417
IMG_3415

To get it working the way I wanted was a pain in the @ss. There is some info on runcommand:

example:
/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh','0', '_SYS_', 'gb', '/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gb/Tetris (JUE) (V1.0) [!].gb'

But no info on Scummvm and i wanted to launch Monkey Island 1 SE talkie version I made back in the day.
When the Talkie Mod came out.. Been looking for a console that could play those 2 new Talkie versions.
And ScummVM is vers 2.0 on Raspberry so it would work.

Here is a Video showing off how it works and change between Monkey Island and EmulationStation.

More detailed view of how it works: Look at the LED LOL

Some close up photo’s

IMG_3421 IMG_3425
A almost done, want to mount the RFID on top. I want to keep the opening to load maybe custom NES cartridges.

Made also new printed USB controller ports:
Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 21.39.11

How to Script it?

I made  2 bash scripts and 1 pyton script (reworked its the RFID reader):

Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 22.25.41
Only added the import subprocess so i can run shell code.
Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 22.26.17
Change your UID to the card you want to use to boot a game. (my card is 221,107,213,59,88)

The Time.sleep(15) needs to be removed to boot the game quicker but left it in because want to try loading splach screen or something. The Led is to indicate if the game is stopt or not. Then it will boot EmulationStation again.
The python program stops but is been rebooted with EmulationStation.

The bash scripts:

Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 21.00.17
This will kill EmulationStation and load the game
Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 20.58.42
This will restart EmulationStation and my Python script will check for a RFID card

And to make it boot at run you need to make this change:
Schermafbeelding 2019-05-26 om 22.48.26

And for the skin i used the NES-Mini theme.

But it was missing 2 themes, i used ScummVM and the Oric emulator on my Pi.
So i made them download link below:
ScummVM:
SCUMMTHEME 1 SCUMMTHEME 2
Download link: ScummVM.
Oric Atmos :
ORIC THEME 1 ORIC THEME 2

Download link: Oric Atoms.

The RFID fits perfect in the box that i made, now i can insert real NES cartridges 😀
IMG_3454
So if i buy empty nes cartridges i could insert a rfid tag and load that game

Tried that and works ;-)
Tried that and works ;-)

(cartridges and RFID tag)

Things to do:

Mount RFID on top case, make everything more durable.
Optimise the code, use some sort of database to use more UID’s and game titles.
Get more RFID tag’s, print more modes of old games… (open source Amiibo’s)

Dreamcast and Online.

DreamPi

Few weeks ago I installed Dream Pi on one of my Raspberry Pi’s.
After that I could enjoy the Online interner of 1999 😀

There is also a nice site that keeps track of how is online: dreamcast.online/now
Schermafbeelding 2019-05-11 om 20.39.29

But I din’t have a good case for it so it was laying around.
So I wanted to try for my first print on my new Anycubic Photon a Dreamcast Shell that I found on Thingiverse.Just a Video of me trying to connect to DreamPi and Quake 3 DC servers
Quake is my go to game to test my connection…

 

First print ever on my Anycubic Photon… Not that good result :-(
IMG_3303

Did’t clean it correctly,
I did it in water after print and then let it there for a day, and then let it dry in the sun.
IMG_3298

The water made it all defuses ooo well learned something i guess
IMG_3299Maybe I can clean it a bit up, but for now the setup looks beter then it looked before.

 

There was room for the USB modem in the shell so i mod it in.
Only needed to extend the USB cable to make it work:

Remix 3D Model of Dreamcast VMU

3d printing

I recently got a Anycubic Photon.

And you can’t change your infill so you need to use hollow models;
when you don’t want to use a lot of resin.

 

I found this vmu on Thingiverse by pcwzrd13:
Printed this for my self and looks good but want to try it on the Anycubic so i need to redesign it.

Thingiverse

So I have been playing in ThinkerCad again result:

Schermafbeelding 2019-05-11 om 10.48.37

 

The VMU is now hollow and loose buttons  😀

Maybe I can fit a smartwatch in there have a cheap 10 euro watch laying around.

But lets print it first 😀

PS4 exploring

Today I dumped my hole content of my PS4. (FTP)

As curious as I am started looking in to some files using good old text editor.

boot_stats.txt and Vshlog.0.txt where very funny to see for my ps4 because
I never used my PS4 that much and boot_stats gives a nice report of that.
Location: System_Data\priv\vshlog\

VshLog.0.txt gives a more detailed over look on the boot times.

Boot_stats.txt

SUM_TOTAL                                                      322
POWER_BUTTON                                            149
BOOTUP_AT_POWERON                              12
BLUETOOTH                                                      112
BG_DAILY_CHECK(EAP)                               11
POWER_BUTTON(EAP)                                  8
EJECT_BUTTON                                                15
MAIN_SOC                                                          12
DISC_LOADED                                                   2
CEC                                                                         1

Very nice stats

First time I Rebooted my ps4 by VshLog.0.txt

Tue,15 Dec 2015 16:34:26 +0100 [SceSystemStateMgr] shutdown for reboot
Build shows up.
Tue,22 Dec 2015 04:52:26 +0100 [SceSystemStateMgr] Boot up (build#612804, EAP, BG_DAILY_CHECK)
Last entry of my vshlog:
Fri, 10 May 2019 07:36:22 +0200 [SceSystemStateMgr] Boot up (build#1007501, POWER_BUTTON)

 

I find it strange there is no real information on the file structure of the ps4.

Maybe i remember it wrong but the wiki on ps3 got a lot of more info on that then ps4..

Found a short list on PsdevWiki but they only show the Partitions on the ps4 side.
And the decrypted folders:

Schermafbeelding 2019-05-10 om 08.51.03
Only on for the removable media they cover the file structure a bit.

been exploring the file structure of the PS4 and there are a lot interesting things to look at.

The title_workaround.xml file got my attention…. but no info about this file.
\\System\priv\workaround_ctl_ro\
there is also a title_workaround.env and there is also a little bit of info on this for ps4.

  • Z80: this .env files are known from cca 3.55? imho
  • no idea what is new in 4.70 because i don’t have code/dumps for that firmware, but each fw brings something new

psdevwiki Env File the title_workaround.env is encrypted
System_Data\priv\workaround_ctl\

The PS4 requests a number of .env files from Sony servers, they use some form of encryption so I am uncertain as to what they contain.

Apparently the ps4 holds a lot of these .env files.
So its not only a PsN feature and something tells me these contain some keys and of course SCEI DNAS Root 01

also the suspend_blacklist_ps4 suspend_ng_list.xml looks interesting…

PS4 And Linux.

Hackers-Successfully-Hacked-Into-Sony-PS4-Console-to-Run-Linux

Recently I jailbroken my PS4 and now we gonna run Linux on it.

Requirements

Lets start

INSTALLATION

The installation is identical to the previous version, DO NOT use other bzimage, initramfs or linux loader! Take only those linked on this page!

ATTENTION: the USB device that you will use for the installation will be completely formatted, all the data will be deleted!

IMPORTANT: for the moment the payload of the linux loader provided here is valid only for those on fw 5.05. Time permitting we will add those for the other fw.

Requirements

  • A USB device of at least 12GB (better if 3.0 and better still if ssd)
  • Keyboard.
  • Mouse (if you don’t have a mouse you can connect dualshock 4 and use the touchpad as a mouse but it’s not the maximum of comfort).
  • A USB hub.
  • initramfs.cpio.gz: Download! md5:  7c38ca9c4eaff335ef52cef398ab1278
  • bzImage md5: Download!  md5:  20fe8941f2238b35822ea61939f2393d
  • psxitarch.tar.xz Download! md5:  8058d928b9a3f9532d55535e166789f7
  1. Format the usb device in FAT32 (NOT EXFAT!), The usb device must have only one partition and the partition table must be mbr (MS-DOS (FAT32)), if the installer does not recognize the usb device use this program for format it: Download!
  2. If you have connected the PSVR disconnect it, also remove the processor unit (PU), keep only the PS4 connected to the TV.
  3. Go to the ps4 audio / video settings and set the resolution to 1080p.
  4. Go to the system settings and disable  Enable HDMI connection and  Enable HDCP
  5. Copy the bzImage, intramfs.cpio.gz and psxitarch.tar.xz files to the root of the usb device.
  6. Connect the usb device in the ps4.
  7. Connect mouse and keyboard
  8. Open the web browser and visit this page  https : //psxita.it/linux-loader to start the linux loader payload (the page can be kept in the cache if you want), for those who want to use the bin can take it from here: Download ! md5:  d5e698431b577bb83638a06cdc0eaf33
  9. After a few seconds the ps4 should reboot, wait until rescueshell appears
  10. Write  exec install-psxitarch.sh to start installing psxitarch linux
  11. Wait, you should see a long list of files that are copied to the usb, at the end (after about 25/30 minutes) the distro should start automatically. If it doesn’t start, type  exec start-psxitarch.sh
  12. Enjoy.

The distro does not require you to enter a username and password but you will need it if you would like to obtain root permissions:

username:  psxita

CHANGE VRAM SIZE

The default payload you find on the https : //psxita.it/linux-loader page  sets the Vram to 2GB, if you want to set it to 3GB use this payload to start linux:  https : //psxita.it/linux-loader-vram3 , if instead you want to set it to 1GB:  https : //psxita.it/linux-loader-vram1
You can use the payload you prefer at any time but during the psxitarch installation NEVER use the vram3 payload.

NOTE: RAM and VRAM are a single block, so the more vrams assigned, the lower the RAM. Do your accounts.

KNOWN ISSUES AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

  • The distro should be compatible with all ps4 models but some monitors and TVs with strange resolutions could give problems and not display anything on screen, if you have the chance try another tv.
  • Graphics acceleration on ps4 pro is not yet fully exploited.
  • The internal HD per hour is detected only on the CUH-10xxx and CUH-11xxx models.
  • Vulkan RADV drivers are not stable yet (it will surely improve with time) in certain emulators / games they could give problems or perform worse than opengl, while in other better ones (see dolphin-emu).
  • The wifi and the bluetooth could in some cases crash (disappear), in the case reboot the PS4, if it still does not work disable the network and launch linux using the cache. NOTE: despite the fix on some versions of ps4 the wifi and / or the bt may not work, unfortunately we have not yet found a valid solution for all consoles.
  • In rare cases, USB devices (mouse, keyboard, …) may not be detected, in case the console is restarted
  • It could happen that after installation some items in the menu are missing, to correct the problem go to “Jwm Config” and select “Refresh Menu”.

PSXItarch Information:

IMPORTANT!!
The USB device that you will use will be completely formatted, all the data will be deleted !!

  • Copy the initramfs, the bzImage, and the psxitarch.tar.xz file to the root of the USB device
  • Connect the USB device to the PS4, if you have connected other USB devices disconnect them (you must have only one USB device connected)
  • Start the exploit
  • Start the payload
  • Wait a few seconds, the screen should go black and then the rescushell screen will appear
  • Connect the keyboard, write:  exec install-psxitarch.sh (the keyboard layout is set to the US, to write the dash you have to use the key
  • Wait until the distro is installed (you should see a long list of files that are copied to the USB), the installation time varies from USB to USB (if you are crazy enough to install the distro on USB 2.0 it should take about 25 minutes)
  • After the installation, the distro should start by itself and show you the login screen, if you do not start to write
    exec start-psxitarch.sh
    (from the next restart the distro should start alone, you will not have to write anything)

On the login screen, enter your
