More o NES Classic Edition

  • NES Classic can run “your own” Linux but not yet worth it

    Despite its rarity, more because of shortage of supplies than being a limited edition, the NES Classic is just begging to be torn down, hacked, and even repurposed. The first has already happened, though not yet on iFixit. The third depends on the second, which is already on its way, albeit rather slowly. A couple of Japanese hackers have revealed how they were able to compile their own version of Linux on the Japanese Famicom Mini, though with little practical application.

  • Nintendo's new NES Classics Edition console can run a custom build of Ubuntu

    There is no question that Nintendo’s move to supply retailers with a millimeter-thin blanket of NES Classic Edition consoles on Friday caused a little backlash over the weekend. We’ve seen reports that one or two customers would walk into participating retailers only to purchase the store’s entire stock in one fell swoop — likely to resell them on eBay for a higher price. Those that did manage to get the currently rare console seemingly snagged an awesome deal and are now enjoying the refreshed 8-bit goodness while other fans now look toward Black Friday.

  • NES Classic joins the “can it run Linux” club, has custom distro installed

    A lucky few were able to secure and purchase the new NES Classic Edition when it launched on Friday, but not every buyer is playing games on it. The hacking community has pounced upon the device to see what the little box can do, and you know what that means: installing Linux.

    Or, at least, your own Linux kernel. The NES Classic Edition already runs on Linux, and Nintendo has complied with open source license rules by offering downloads of the tiny hardware's Linux source files. While a few enterprising hackers have posted about connecting a serial cable to the motherboard and trying to install their own kernels, one Japanese hacker pulled it off—and posted a guide explaining how he did so. (If you really care, he also posted the entire bootlog from his first successful boot.)

  • ETLegacy Continues Advancing Enemy Territory With OpenGL 3, OpenAL Surround Sound

    One of my favorite Linux-native games of all time would definitely be Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Wonderful memories of that excellent id Tech 3 game and back when I had time to game on Linux, when not being challenged by early Linux GPU driver issues. This game continues to live on via the community ETLegacy open-source project and recently did issue a major update.

    A Phoronix reader pointed out this week that back in September was the ETLegacy 2.75 release. We have covered ETLegacy previously as an open-source project working on a fully-compatible client and server for Enemy Territory based off the open-sourced id Tech 3 engine code. The past few years ETLegacy has been making the game more modern and supported via SDL work, Ogg Vorbis support, optimizations, engine improvements, Lua scripting, and other features not dreamed of back when this game was released in 2003.

  • Vendetta Online 1.8.396 MMORPG Released for Linux, Mac, Windows, and Andriod

    Guild Software developers are proud to announce this past weekend the release of a new maintenance update for their popular, cross-platform, and VR-ready Vendetta Online 1.8 massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

    Vendetta Online 1.8.396 is here exactly two weeks after the 1.8.395 release to finally implement monitoring functionality to all empty sectors in the Capitol systems, but only those that contain Training Sectors. Also, it adds various tweaks to the management of powercell energy in capital ships during jump-out, and addresses an issue with the menu, which wasn't visible during automatic generation of account conversion on mobile devices.

  • SteamVR to Get Linux and Mac OSX Support Within “a Few Months”

    Valve is planning to introduce beta versions of its SteamVR platform for Mac OSX and Linux users within a few months.
