... hasn't the quarantine been incredibly good for their sales? The Switch is still hard to find and Animal Crossing made bananaballs numbers.

Anyhoo. This Direct made me very happy. I've been ranting about how they should release the PS 2-era SMT games on the Switch and am incredibly hopeful that this leads to a Digital Devil Saga dual release and especially a Raidou Kuzunoha two pack.

And look at these SMW Bowser sprites! Why didn't they reuse these for Mario Maker?

And that has been extended to N64 games including Mario Kart, Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, 1080 Snowboarding.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

[up] Might be because I recently watched a video talking about it, but hearing stuff from Mario Kart 64 leaked immediately made me think "Kamek??"

And now it seems like people are finding everything up through the Wii U and 3DS, and considering when it was found, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some early Switch files in there.

And it seems that everything people have found has been only 100 GB of the 2 TB sorted through.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

Cross-posting from the Switch thread as I really need an answer here:

I have a question relating to data management:

If I were to download a game that needs 6gb of space, and my SD Card only has 3gb left while my system memory has 23gb, would the 6gb game download automatically to the system memory?

Course this is easy for me.

...how big is a terabyte?
1024 Gigabytes.

I know it's an oddly specific number but seeing how bits are 2^8 that's how it ends up.

I do lots of stuff. The real question is am I any good at that stuff.

Man this leak is already the Holy Grail of leaks and they've barely scratched the surface.

What else is in that data dump, I wonder.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody remembers it, who else will you have ice cream with?

I don't know if there any handhelds in that leak, but since we've already got a scrapped DK game I wonder if that unreleased Starfy GB/GBC game is floating somewhere around there

powerpuffbats: Yes. In fact, a game will preferentially download to system memory even if there is enough space on the μSD card.

Mach: No, a terabyte is exactly 10^12 bytes, or 1,000 gigabytes. Also, a gigabyte is 1,000 megabytes, a megabyte is 1,000 kilobytes, and a kilobyte is 1,000 bytes. A byte is 8 bits.

1024 bytes is a kibibyte. 1024 kibibytes makes a mebibyte, 1024 mebibytes makes a gibibyte, and 1024 gibibytes makes a tebibyte.

Microsoft, Apple, and the computer industry have long incorrectly referred to units of data by the names of the metric units of approximately the same size instead of by the correct names. This appears to be partly because customers are more familiar with metric prefixes, and partly because most computer companies are based in America, where metric isn't used in everyday life.

Hard disk manufacturers actually use the terms correctly, as do most Unices and Unix-like operating systems, with the notable exception of Mac. This is why, if you plug an external storage device into a PC running Linux, the number it shows won't be the same as the number on the box, becase Linux defaults to the 2^n-based units. For example, when I plug in an 8 TB external hard drive, it shows as 7.2 TiB, because 8 terabytes is (approximately) 7.2 tebibytes.

As an interesting footnote, floppy disks didn't actually hold 1.44 MB of data. They held 1440 KiB, which works out to 1.47 MB, or 1.41 MiB; the figure of 1.44 was obtained by taking the number of kibibytes and dividing it by 1,000, thus confusing all the units.

Except pretty much nobody uses that, even if it is asking for trouble down the line.

A number of Nintendo's N64 games had their source code leaked, including Mario 64. An unused model for Luigi was found in the data.

Which could imply DS games coming soon in the near future because Luigi was playable in Mario 64 DS?

Implying nothing. This is material from the 64 release. Why it leaked is a mystery as far as I know.

I remember when I saw a twitter post saying "Nintendo is evil because they go against digital preservation", when ironically they're one of the best at that, to the point that we still get leaks from their old beta stuff.

Lone wolf? Hah! "Lone" wolves die out of hunger and loneliness. The wolf needs the pack, and the pack needs the wolf.
