(re)introduction 

Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:

I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- computers
- nerd/weeb shit
- music
- meta stuff
- programming
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff

And that's mostly it ✨

Thanks to MVG's latest video I learnt that you can launch DS games off a SD card on a softmodded (new) 3DS so... I'm def going to do that πŸ‘€

Playing random GBA games kinda makes me want to stream playing them.

I have the gear needed to, too bad i'm too self-conscious about how my voice sounds to ever let myself do that, welp.

1h in, the 1st game is a RPG with a card-based battle system, it’s not bad so far!

Also, LOOK at that sprite of Alphonse Elric 😭😭😭

2021 starting strong as the year where I’m completely back on my usual bullshit and I will not feel sorry for it πŸ˜‚

Folks, I was reminded that there were two Fullmetal Alchemist games for the GBA AND that they both have translation patches.

I am 100% going to play the shit out of them and probably post pics of them whenever i do.

The juxtaposition of those two images works very well as a metaphor of the last 12 months, honestly

So I tried running PokΓ©mon Crystal on the EverDrive GBA with Goomba Color and, huh.

Well it runs but now how I expected.

Don't know why it happens but it's hilarious

The game: ok NOW you can fight the final boss!
Me: great!
The game: ah, actually there's another fight after the 2 phases and also if you die you have to go through the puzzle+mini-bosses and the 2 phases all over again
Me: *sigh*

The game: OK, it's the final boss!
Me: great!
The game: but first you'll have to fight a mini-boss, a puzzle and then 3 mini-bosses at once
Me: ...

Spent the last few days replaying TLoZ Minish Cap on the GBA, that games hold up pretty well even if I didn't remember how much of a chore the final boss(es) were 😬

Just modded the second GBA πŸ˜„

That pink color looks really nice, much darker than I expected but it looks good still.

Managed to move/attenuate the bleeding to a less noticeable state by un-tightening a screw, so I'll just leave that gba alone because i can live with that tbh

A new donor GBA, shell, LCD, screws, and 2 hours later, the modding is a success πŸŽ‰

I forgot to buy white silicone pads so Sel/Start are grey and not white but πŸ™ƒ

The LCD is gorgeous, otherwise!
