Image
These Ringtones where all made by me using the Program iRinger 4.2 for Windows; as such, I only take credit for Making these M4R format Ringtones as well as Compiling them into an Nice and Neat Ringtone Pack. Compressed as an RAR Archive.  I hope you will Enjoy them; Just Import the Extracted Pack into your iTunes. If they don't auto-import in the "Tones" Section, Right-Click the Album under "Music" and select "Get Info", and Change the Media Type to "Ringtone". Then Just sync the Ringtones with Your iPhone.

Technical Specs:
Total Pack - 20 Ringtones, 10 Minutes, 19.7 MB (Data Approximated)
Each Ringtone - 30 Seconds, M4R format

Important File Extensions - Updated

Hello Everyone,
today I'll be talking about some of a few important File Extensions, this could prove very useful in sorting out what Rom Image Files are for what kind of Emulator . And, also what Files may be important when playing a computer game. So, I shall compile an list of these file types; and what Emulator would be the best to Emulate the Rom Image file.

Legend: Extension - File Type - Owner - Best Program to Use (for Windows, In my Opinion)
*The term "Unknown Data" means that I currently don't know that Info, yet.

HDMI HD Computer Graphics

I would absolutely love an HDMI PC Monitor for My Desktop PC, It would be great for PC Games/Emulators. And for Streaming HTML5 Netflix using Google Chrome 39. I already have an decent Nvidia Graphics Card that Supports HDMI Output.

HP Support Pages:
HP Support - Connecting a TV or Monitor to your Windows 7 PC using HDMI 


The Cheapest Graphics Card on the Market that

supports HDMI HD Video Output is the, Nvidia

Geforce GT 610. which costs approx. $50 USD at BestBuy.

This is the Model I have:

But, Any "Modern" Nvidia Geforce GT Model should Have an HDMI Output Port. And yes, Your Nvidia GPU's HDMI port is also your PC's HD Audio/Sound Card.

I would personally Recommend using an Nvidia GPU; But, if you are fond of ATI Graphics Cards, Many "Modern" ATI GPUs also support HDMI output.

Rocky's #1 Favorite Media Player: VLC Media Player

Image
I love VLC media player; it uses the "libdvdcss DVD decryption library" to Playback your encrypted DVD Movies. On Windows and Mac OSX this Library is Installed with VLC Media Player. But on Linux you Must Install it Separately, the easiest way to Do this is by Installing "libdvdread4" from your Distro's Software Center.

Or by typing this Command in the Unix/Linux Terminal:















Then Hit "Enter", You'll be Prompted for your Admin "Super User" Password, It won't show the password; just type it then hit "Enter" again.

VLC Media Player also can Play Every format of media file; and it has been said that if VLC Media Player can't Playback the Media File, Nothing can. VLC Media Player can Even Playback  DVD Video Disc Backups (.iso), as if it was an actual Media File.

Legal Status of Video Game Emulation

Emulators are Legal if they don't require an "dumped" BIOS file to run; It's Illegal to Share these BIOS files and those Copyrighted Rom files on the Internet. The BIOS file was Sony's Main Issue with the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 Emulators throughout History.

 BIOS files wasn't an Issue with Nintendo, as many Emulators didn't need them; so with Nintendo, they were mostly upset about people not using the Official Hardware. Even So, GBA consoles no longer Exist, and Nintendo No Longer sells the Games, if Nintendo doesn't wan't Emulation Then they should Offer all of their Old Games on their Virtual Console. Many People use Emulation, because their Favorite Old Game isn't Offered on the Virtual Console.

I have also seen an few "Legal" PlayStation Emulators, Firstly since PCSX-R (PSX), and PPSSPP (PSP) actually "Simulate" their BIOS files instead of needing Copyrighted files, they are Technically "Legal", as Long…

Nintendo 3DS Emulation on PC

Now Emulating the Nintendo 3DS on your PC can be very, very Tricky; About almost Every Single Emulator that you find online is a Fake one, Locked With Surveys, Missing the BIOS files, Needs to be Activated, or Loaded with Viruses. It has become so Bad that People start thinking that "Any Emulator that Locked with a Survey is Fake". Which is a shame; Why must People do that? Why do they Distribute Malicious Programs and Lock them behind a Survey? The answer is simply to scam us Out of our Money. They Earn Money from those Surveys.

How Ever, I did manage to Find a Decent Emulator that Actually Works; It's Called: "Rick's 3DS Emulator for Pokemon", and as the Name states; It is currently only able to Play either "Pokemon X Version" or "Pokemon Y Version". It has a "Fullscreen Mode", "Sound Emulation" and "Hardware GPU Acceleration" (Currently: Only for Nvidia GPU Cards!).

You Can find the Emulator Here:

PSP Emulation on PC

Image
Hello, Recently I've Been getting into Emulating the PlayStation Portable (PSP) on my PC; The best Emulator to do this is called: "PPSSPP", it is really good.  And has been Ported to many Platforms.
Now, there's a Regular Free Version of the Emulator; or you Can Donate a amount of your Choosing ($2 USD Minimum) for the "Gold Version". There is actually no Major Differences between "PPSSPP" and "PPSSPP Gold", besides the Gold version's Icon is Gold; Donating Helps Support The Project and Growth of the Emulator.  The Windows Emulator Package contains Both the 32-Bit and 64-Bit program; I usually Use the 32-Bit version, tho. You only have to Donate once; and you get Permanent "Gold Status" and Access to All Current and Future Downloads of the PPSSPP Gold Version of the Emulator.

The Current Version of the Emulator is: 0.9.8
Platforms: Windows XP+, Mac OSX, Linux, iOS 6+ (Jailbroken), Blackberry 10, and Android OS

Ren'Py Visual Novel: Homeward

Well, first off Ren'Py is an Visual Novel Development Engine that is Cross-Platform and Compatible with PC (Windows), Mac OSX, and Linux. (Linux Tested on Ubuntu). It is a Freeware "Starter Development Kit (SDK)" Programmed using the Python Programming Language by someone called Pytom. Further more the Downloadable SDK [Current Version: 6.17], is only used to build and compile the Visual Novel Games. And the Visual Games will run on a PC, Mac, or Linux Computer; just, as long as it has Python installed on it. And you can Load the Windows EXE on other Operating Systems, via the "Wine Windows Program Loader". (Mac and Linux; to Launch the EXE) Also, most Ren'Py engines are built on atleast Python 2.6; so you should be Fine with Python 2.7 and/or 3.3 installed on your Computer. This is Not really needed, as all Ren'Py games are shipped with an "Stripped Down" version of Python (Usually Python 2.6); But, I install Python anyways just to be on the …
