Billy Hatcher Hyper Shoot

I'm currently in the process of going through another nostalgic game. This time it's Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, a GameCube classic I remember playing around the time it came out. One of the neat features of this game is the GBA-to-GC connectivity. You could send mini-games to the Game Boy Advance. Fortunately, the Dolphin emulator and VBA can actually emulate this functionality. I was able to "download" the first mini-game "Billy Hatcher Hyper Shoot (Easy)" to VBA. After that, it's technically in the GBA's memory as a game which can run as long as you don't turn off the power. Fortunately, it's possible to extract the ROM and I had GM convert it to a bootable GBA ROM that runs in VBA.

Awesome new code by GM

GM made this code recently. It is for Mega Man Star Force 3. It lets you disconnect from Wi-Fi battles quickly and without penalty.

Push Select to Disconnect From Wi-Fi (Black Ace)
94000130 FFFB0000
222AFE80 0000000C
D0000000 00000000

Push Select to Disconnect From Wi-Fi (Red Joker)
94000130 FFFB0000
222AFEA0 0000000C
D0000000 00000000

I bet this is really going to anger the 3 people that still play online!

Some BN Viruses

I recently decided to gather more images and therefore proper rips of artwork for enemies in the Battle Network games. I just took pictures with my phone, which seems to give much better results than painstakingly destroying the binding and scanning. Nice, high quality art and large enough so the dot pattern goes away most of the time. Check them out!

Word Verification Added + Bonus

After the silly amounts of spam I've been getting, I've added word verification to comments. Now hopefully I only see the one or two comments I get per month to approve and not the dozens of fake spam messages pretending to sound real.

Might as well make this post a little more useful.

USB Mega Buster

It's available!
Buy me one, guys. Which reminds me, I should try and get that Star Force 3 protective kit which is still being sold here, and at record-low prices due to clearance.
