ModChat 044 - Switch 6.0.0 Update, Pokémon Essentials Takedown, PS2 Support Dropped

September 12, 2018

This episode has us taking a look at the latest news surrounding the 6.0.0 update for Nintendo Switch, as well as the preparation being done around this update for CFW and other applications in the homebrew community. We check out some new releases, such as SwitchME and a guide dedicated to ReiNX, as well as chime in on a new takedown Nintendo has put through for the RPG Maker toolkit called Pokémon Essentials. Also, PS2 support dropping in... 2018? More on that in the show.


ModChat 043 - ROMsites Without ROMs, Fighting PS4 Clickbait, 3DS 11.8 Changes

August 22, 2018

Is a ROMsite still a ROMsite without the ROMs? We plan to tackle that in this episode of ModChat when we discuss several ROMsites taking down their collections of downloads with or without the intervention of another company coming into play. We also take a look at the upcoming news Al Azif, known for his awesome ps4-exploit-host program, assembling a blacklist of users the PS4 homebrew community can point newcomers towards and let people know who cannot be trusted in regards to anything newsworthy. Finally, a segment about a 3DS update? Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but it seems 11.8 made a ton of under the hood tweaks, as well as server-side tweaks which seem to backport some of the anti-piracy challenges from the Switch over to the 3DS!


ModChat 042 - Switch Bans, SX Brick Code Removed, h-encore on Vita w/ ModernVintageGamer

July 19, 2018

We're joined once again by ModernVintageGamer to discuss even more modding news! Following the long running trend, we do have quite a bit of Nintendo Switch news to cover including bans for modified consoles being detailed, the troublesome battery desync fix people experienced with RCM, back and forth with SX developers and reverse engineers, and new Switches out in the wild which have fixed Fusée Gelée! However we also have a good amount of non-Switch related news as well including TheFloW's release of h-encore for the latest Vita firmware, a new Xbox 360 glitch chip, GDEMU being cloned, and a few other goodies uncovered in older games. Stay tuned!


ModChat 041 - Switch Downgrades Possible, LayeredFS Mods, SX Discussion

June 20, 2018

Another episode, another massive delivery and recap of Switch homebrew scene news! Since the last episode we've discovered the Switch can be downgraded to any firmware, despite the eFuse technology we spoke about in previous episodes. We also look into a few teases we've seen such as LayeredFS, emuNAND, title installations, and more! On top of that we also plan to touch up on some good news for 3.68 Vita users, the latest 5.05 PS4 jailbreak being released, as well as discussing initial thoughts people have aired out about Team-Xecuter's SX.


ModChat 040 - Fusée Gelée Released, ElDewrito Takedown, and PS4 5.05 News w/ ModernVintageGamer

May 16, 2018

With so much modding news dropping right after ModChat 039, we had to start this list almost immediately after finishing the last episode! Here we take a look at Fusée Gelée being released into the wild on the Switch, and in regards to that we also discuss our thoughts on the Team-Xecuter solution they've been hyping up for months: SX. Along with the news of ElDewrito being taken down, the upcoming PS4 Mira framework for the PS4 5.05 jailbreak, and the FTC now forcing companies to remove warranty stickers from game consoles... Well, this will be a packed episode. Oh, and we also have ModernVintageGamer on here as a guest, so that's cool.


ModChat 039 - ReSwitched Save Backups, PS4 Webkit Chip, Retail Games on yuzu Switch Emulator!

April 18, 2018

Another month, another ModChat full of PS4 and Switch modding news! We try to cover whatever we can, but each episode recently has been absolutely full of Switch and PS4 topics simply because of their respective bustling homebrew scenes. One small script, which I myself am particularly excited for, is a game save backup script for the Switch which works with ReSwitched! Something regular listeners know I've been complaining about for months has been the lack of being able to properly backup our own saves on the Switch, but now with the power of homebrew that's possible! This episode also introduces the second PS4 chip we've ever discussed, which is an upcoming chip designed to work hand-in-hand with all of the webkit based exploits available right now. This is similar to the current ESP8266 self-hosting method, except internal to the PS4 and with more robust features planned. We also talk about emulators on here for a bit, one of which being the yazu emulator designed for Switch titles on PC and the fact that we're seeing retail games run on it this early on!


ModChat 038 - PS4 HEN 4.55, PS3Xploit v3 HAN, Switch CFW in Progress!

March 22, 2018

This seems to be yet another fruitful month of modding news for PlayStation consoles all around, and the Switch yet again! We touch up on a few custom firmwares now being worked on for the Switch, a new PS4 HEN to come out for firmwares up to 4.55, PS3Xploit being updated, and even come out with a bit of Vita news! Before you get too excited for that last one, be aware that you will still need a Vita on 3.60, still nothing yet for any stock consoles on a higher firmware.


ModChat 037 - Switch Homebrew Launcher, PS4 4.05 & PS Vita Roundup!

February 21, 2018

More Switch and PS4 modding updates! We've jokingly thought of calling this NintendoChat with all of the Switch homebrew related news coming out, but that has to be good news for the Switch homebrew scene! Some of the topics we go over in this include: Team-Xecuter's Switch modchip being delayed, a Switch Homebrew Launcher being released, NVIDIA Shield TV getting emulated GameCube/Wii games, and some news for the 3.67 PS Vita firmware!


ModChat 036 - Switch Modchip by Team-Xecuter, Switch Homebrew Channel, All the Emulation!

January 23, 2018

First episode of 2018! Join us as we speculate on the news of a modchip for the Switch by Team-Xecuter, discuss the back and forth announcements between free and paid Switch modification announcements,  as well as some exciting announcements in regards to emulation related to the Switch. Wait... It seems like this episode will mostly be Switch related news... Oops.


ModChat 035 - Taking Your Questions to Finish Off 2017!

December 20, 2017

Last year, for our final episode of 2016 we decided to go into the show with no prepared topics and have it be focused on user questions. We all had quite a bit of fun with that episode and the viewers seemed to enjoy it as well, so we figured we could start making it a yearly tradition! This time with our new host. Join us live to have some fun, ask us questions (whether or not they're focused on modding is up to you), and celebrate one final ModChat stream for 2017!
