Nintendo Gigaleak (source code, betas artwork, ROMs etc.)
#1

So, did any of you hear of the massive Nintendo leaks (source code, betas artwork, ROMs etc.) that's been going on over @ 4chan?

I did my best to compile a list of the threads thus far. There are probably more threads, but it's hard to keep track. New ones are created constantly.

Nobody can use these, unless you don't care about getting in trouble with the law.

The source code for BIOS / boot ROMs and OS source code for the various consoles can be used to improve emulators. Granted, the code can't be copied directly as is, but it can be looked at and learned from, and then new code can be written that looks different but does the same thing. It can improve accuracy and speed of emulators. I think there's even source code for some of Nintendo's own emulators included.

These leaks are also valuable for the preservation of video game history, and hackers / game programmers can look at the code and learn from it.

No, you can't, or Nintendo will definitely sue you.

You can't just look at the code and even glean something from it. This is why the ReactOS project doesn't accept former Microsoft employees; they can fuck them royally.

Just remember this Nineteen Eighty-Four style quote:

"Corporate plagiarism does not entail death, corporate plagiarism is death."

You can look at the code as many times as you like, but you are generally killing yourself if you're looking for volunteering for something like ReactOS or Wine.

Forgive the Microsoft-esque example, but you understand.

There's no way to prove in court that official Nintendo source code was used if the new code looks different, and especially if the code is in a different language. There are many ways to do the same thing in programming languages.

OK, well, good luck with that, but I wouldn't use it.

EDIT: And don't expect the Dolphin project to use it either.

Case in point: Blizzard Entertainment shut down the Freecraft project because it bears a resemblance to the game Warcraft II, and it's not even about the source code either.

There are multiple ways to make use of the source code without getting into legal trouble, and it involves various degrees of obfuscation. You could reverse-engineer the code, by having one group of people that looks at the code directly, and then talks to a second group of people describing in general terms what the code does. It's highly unlikely that the resulting code is going to look exactly like the original code.

When speaking about legality, you need definite proof to defeat someone in court. If the code isn't exactly the same, and Nintendo's code isn't found on your computer, there's no proof.


Forgot the initial leak thread.

Created an archive of PDFs (of all the threads up to #58).

This is the current thread on 4chan.

Unauthorized and unjailed games and emulators will be made - legal or not - and that is a good thing. If nintendo has any sense, they'll say fuck it, smack an open source license on it all and move on to new tech advances they can wrap up in all the jailcode and secrecy they want.

ill88eagle, no disrespect, but it will not even be 300 years until Nintendo, Microsoft, or Sony would do that.

If you put an open source licence, where do you start to profit?

By the way, having Dr. Mario's source code is not very helpful; you can just program a copy of Dr. Mario yourself and make a clone; there exists something like that with Tetris. There are a lot of Tetris clones.

Sound advice but in a pirates' forum it's reasonable to presume the "NinLeak" users don't (care).
