Have they fixed the lego indiana jones hack now as I have noticed the price on ebay is now cheaper?

Saw copies going for £100+ before Christmas.

Even if the LIJ glitch has been patched, it won't take long before someone discovers another method to circumvent the os!

Bannerbomb, Hackmii, SD Card. No exploits or discs needed.

It's not as easy as that depending on what system software he is running.

The Lego Batman hacks works on all the latest firmware. Usually cheaper than Indy!

True. I just wanted to hint at how another way is possible, without giving explicit details. It is cracking your console after all and I didn't want to get the site into trouble for links to piracy/cracking sites.

Just to let people know a new official Genplus GX update has been released. It now includes Master System support and I have to say they play and look lovely. FM sound isn't emulated yet but it's being worked on, same with Game Gear games. I think there has been a few change to the core also to add support for some obscure ROM's like KOF 98 among others.

You can get the emulator here

I had the intention of trying this tonight as well as the new version of SNES9x on the PS3 but i had to fix my friends 'friends' Wii which 'the kids' had bricked by mistake - READ he f'd it up trying to install some sh1tty usb loader.

Maybe give them a bash on Wednesday when i finish for a couple of days.

Just posting to let you guys know if you don't already that Snes9x GX and FCE Ultra GX have both been updated.

It seem Snes9x GX has had been given an extra compatibility boost with a few game fixes for: Mutant Chronicles - Doom Troopers, Porky Pig's Haunted Holiday, Big Sky Trooper, and Mechwarrior 3050 / Battle Tech 3050.

The best news is FCE Ultra GX, I dunno if anyone else noticed but there's been a long standing bug in this near perfect emulator with some slight hiccups to the sound, which would skip a tiny bit every few seconds. Well it's finally been ironed out in all video modes (240p/480i/480p) so the sound is perfect now. It makes Nintendo's own emulator in the Virtual Console look pretty sad in comparison.

Just a heads up for anyone with a modded wii, update Genesis Plus GX to the latest version (1.7.0) now as Mega-CD support has been added!

^ Had the update since the day it came out, works great apart from the current lack of CDDA audio support. Apart from that, I'd go as far to say it's a better Mega-CD emu than any on the PC - games like Road Rash and Sensi that won't boot in Kega Fusion or Gens Plus play fine on the Wii.
