Wii WBFS to ISO conversion - WITGUI

A couple of weeks ago I converted my external WBFS drive to FAT32. It's working great with the Wii, so no problems there. I did have an issue with my usual WBFS utility, WBFS for MacOS X, where it wouldn't read my partition once I converted the drive. I was forced to find a new utility, which is WITGUI. WITGUI allows me to select a folder instead of a partition to manage. This works great for copying, converting, and managing my games.

PPSSPP OS X build from 12.16.2014

Fresh from the oven! I baked up a piping hot loaf of PPSSPP for Mac OS X. The app bundle should be ready to roll out by double clicking it's icon. Also, make sure you have the SDL2.framework installed on your system (located in /Library/Frameworks).

This application bundle was built under OS X 10.10.1 (Yosemite).

Upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 to 14.10 pre-release

What in tar-nation am I doing? Well, it seems I'm 'updating' my perfectly working Ubuntu 14.04 system to the pre-release Ubuntu 14.10 version. I know its official release is only about two weeks away (Oct. 23 2014), but I want it now. NOW I SAY! I am really hoping for a clean upgrade, one that won't kill my software environment.

You can also break your Ubuntu 14.04 system by typing in

sudo update-manager -d

Into a terminal and pressing enter. I'll let ya'll know how it went after this reboot...

Strangely, It's all functional. Everything that was working is still working, including my nVidia video drivers and Unity desktop. From first glance there isn't much difference visually between 14.04 and 14.10. I guess the piece of mind from knowing I am running the latest and greatest will have to do.

My Ubuntu packages available

I'm slowly learning how to package binaries for Ubuntu. Today I've compiled Desmume 0.9.11svn  for Ubuntu 14.04 and packaged it up into a neat little .deb. You can find it on my google drive. Hopefully I'll be adding more little apps and utilities to the mix in the next few days. I've not made a repository yet, these are just some .debs in a directory. Download and install.

You can find my pacakges from the link below.

Battle.net Desktop App, Crossover Wine and Fedora

Just a quick heads up. I had to install the openldap.i686 package to get the battle.net desktop app to run on my fedora installation. Use the below command to install the package.

sudo yum install openldap.i686

cheers!

Mednafen 0.9.43.1 for Fedora 20 64-Bit

I noticed the build of Mednafen on RPMFusion was a little out of date so I went ahead and built a new RPM from the latest WIP source.

You can download it form my Dropbox.

PPSSPP Qt binaries now available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

In addition to the SDL binaries for Ubuntu 14.04 I now have the Qt binaries ready to download. You can find them on my dropbox archive.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zjimhxa9dm5o9kb/vzA48_gT9v

The Qt binaries is compiled under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I cannot promise they will run under any other Linux flavor or Ubuntu release. You should be able to download, decompress and run the binary with only the Qt5 libraries needed to be installed. No installation of PPSSPP needed.

Ubuntu 14.04 - The Old College Try!

So I installed Ubuntu 14.04 last night. It isn't too bad after disabling a shit load of Unity Scopes. 14.04 seems to be a lil' bit faster than 13.10, window movement most notably. It also seems pretty stable thus far, nothing's crashed yet. All the Steam games I play are working well. World of Warcraft via Crossover WINE 13.0.2 is also running well.

For a few days (or untill I get tired of Ubuntu) the PPSSPP compiles with be done under Ubuntu 14.04.


PPSSPP Fedora 20 daily builds back online

My daily builds of the Sony PSP emulator PPSSPP are back online and located on my dropbox @

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zjimhxa9dm5o9kb/vzA48_gT9v
Just look for the most recent date and download. All binaries are built on Fedora 20 x64. SDL builds only as the QT binaries will not build *shrugs*.

Have fun!

Dolphin Emu git clone Build Archive for Fedora 20 RPM

In addition to my most honorable PPSSPP daily build archive I am also doing weekly builds of the fabulous Dolphin Emulator from their GitHub repository. Dolphin Emu is a Nintendo Gamecube & Wii emulator which works very well if you have the hardware for it.

The builds are available as RPMs for Fedora 20 64bit. I'll try to get the RPMs updated every Sunday.

OpenJK - Jedi Academy Binaries - Fedora 20

Image
Yesterday I compiled a nice set of binaries for the OpenJK project. If you haven't heard OpenJK is a source port of a modified Quake3 engine used to run Star Wars - Jedi Academy. The binaries were compiled on Fedora 20 64bit but is a 32bit application. You'll need a whole slew of i686 dependencies to run it on a 64bit system. Unfortunately I don't remember what all libraries I installed to compile it. Your best bet is to run it in the terminal for the first time to track down what libraries you are missing (if any).

To run the game you'll need the .pk3 files from the commercial game itself. You can still purchase Jedi Academy on Steam. There should be 4 of them (assets0.pk3 - assets3.pk3). Place them in the 'base' directory and you should be ready to run the openjk_sp.i386 application. If you are using the original CD-ROM release of SW: JA you'll need to update it to v1.21.
