Xbox One new update (April) features leaked

Closed preview beta starts rolling out on March 18th

The new features that the April update for Xbox One will have have been leaked online

Thanks to some users enrolled in the preview beta program for Xbox One updates we have discovered that a new one is due in April (Wave 1404) and the features it contains have also leaked. Check it out:

Quote:

What to expect in this update preview

For those of you that participated in last month’s (1403) update preview, this preview wave will be a little different:

The 1404 update preview will run a bit longer than the 1403 preview. As a result, not all of the features listed below will be available in the first 1404 update. Some features will be enabled in 1404 updates that are rolled out later in the preview.

Some of the features listed below will be enabled outside of a console update. Keep an eye on the forums for announcements and information on when new features are made available.

What’s new in this release?

  • Game and app saves and updates. A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
  • Friends improvements. Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This actually was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We’ll also add the ability to view friends’ most popular apps.
  • Blu-ray 50 Hz video output support for content recorded at 50 Hz will resolve video playback issues some Xbox Live members in Europe are experiencing.
  • Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to fine tune the quality and reliability of Xbox One commands.
  • Improved GameDVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
  • Updates to Xbox One device management to address issues controlling TVs, set top boxes, and receivers that our customers have reported.
  • New audio settings to tune how much volume is lowered when Kinect is used in communications.

The closed preview for this update will start rolling out tonight (March 18th) and the final update is expected to release to the general public at some point in April.

Our thanks to ‘Kaos2K’ for this news item!

Iris Manager v2.81 Released

A small update is out for Iris Manager, bringing latest version to 2.81. The update improves creation of ISO, and increases speed when showing files.

What’s new in version 2.81:

Improvements in the creation of ISO (makeps3iso) that resolves the problem with MGS4. It is recommended to update to this version, although the problem has been submitted as only happens in very specific cases.

Improvement in Iris Manager so that it is not updating the size free disk drives whenever you change directory (which causes slowness to show files)

[Release] multiMAN 04.17.04 – New “Minimal”/”Bare” Version Available

DeanK has released multiMAN 04.17.04. There is now also a BARE version (only 3.8MB) available for those that complained about the size of multiMAN.

multiman

multiMAN 04.17.04 update is available online (cex/dex/stealth)

multiMAN ver 04.17.04 UPD CEX (20121226).pkg (1.76MB)
http://www.sendspace.com/file/jl0lo6

* Visual improvements
* Added SD/MS/CF entries in Retro
* Fade-in for game backgrounds
* Some other improvements related to copying/scanning/verifying/etc
* multiMAN “minimal”/”bare” version available (read below)

=======================================

Few weeks ago some people requested a ‘minimalistic’ version of multiMAN. For them I created this package:

multiMAN ver 04.17.04 BARE CEX (20121226) (only 3.8MB)
http://www.sendspace.com/file/z6auao

This is a skinned down version (BARE). It can be installed on any PS3 without the need of a previous mM installation. It is like a “base” but the differences are:

* Simple theme (2MB) (no theme music)
* No GUI translations (English only)
* No user fonts (only system fonts will be used)
* No PS1/PS2/PSP names/IDs database (no game names will be displayed)
* AIOMOD not included (old BD-Mirror method for USB games will be used on 4.21+CFWs)

Do not use it unless you’re the one who asked for it. BARE can be installed on any firmware for normal users who don’t really need any of the listed above features. Of course NONE of these features are present in other BUMs so everyone should be happy. It can be installed on top of your current mM if you wish to test it (you will not notice much difference, because you already have the fonts/translations/aiomod/themes installed).

This bare version is suitable for:

* English speaking users
* All 3.41/3.55 (non Cobra/TB) firmwares
* All 4.21+ firmwares (disc may be required when booting bd-mirror USB games if AIOMOD.BIN is not present)
* Weeners who complain all the time that 130MB is too much for a stupid PS3 homebrew like mM

Windows 8 Hits 40 Million In Sales

If you somehow don’t know, Windows 8 is Microsoft’s latest foray into the operating system world. In general, with it’s multitude of changes, for once this is for better or worse an entirely new Windows experience that most of us have never really seen before. With its emphasis on tablet computers and touch screens, it seems that Microsoft would like you to be swiping your way into the future with the inclusion of specially designed apps and a store to buy them. Not to mention the increased load times will in most cases be a relief to all PC enthusiasts.

That being said, what has really shot the new OS into the forty million mark is its price. For newer computers, you can buy an upgrade disc for just fifteen bucks. Everyone else on XP or  higher though, only has to pay forty. Quite the savings from the hundreds of dollars we have seen in the past. In light of this milestone, Microsoft has reminded us that the best is yet to come, but as of right now the upgrades have already outpaced the brisk Windows 7 adoption rates from a few years back. With its supposed improvements for a steal of a price, is Windows 8 something you would consider jumping to if you haven’t already?

first you have to enter your titleID and after clicking on “Do It!” it will Automatically Download and patch the latest update/s which is below 3.6 to be playable on 3.55.

FYI:
1-if you have downloaded files before and you just want to fix them put them in application’s folder.after checking the sony server if file exists it will skip that file and will start to fix
2-to copy download Download Link double click on it
3-this app doesn’t changes PARAM.SFO(Some times changing PARAM.SFO causes some problem in packing)to prevent Update error enable the spoof on your cfw
4-here is a example of which files to install
for example i want to update and install Gran Turismo 5
1-Enter BCES00569
2-it will automatically download the 9 files:
“EP9001-BCES00569_00-0000000000000000-A0105-V0100-PE.pkg”

“EP9001-BCES00569_00-0000000000000000-A0113-V0100-PE.pkg”
after download finished the application will automatically fix the latest patch (in this case:”EP9001-BCES00569_00-0000000000000000-A0113-V0100-PE.pkg”) and will make a new file which is fixed for 3.55 with following name:
EP9001-BCES00569_00-0000000000000000.pkg
(The last part of name has been removed.)

EP9001-BCES00569_00-0000000000000000-A0112-V0100-PE.pkg

[Released] Soywiz’s PSP Emulator For Windows PC

We never post PSP News, but this one is quite interesting, developer Sonywiz has updated his PSP Emulator for Windows, here is a quote from the source:

This version has major improvements:

  • Module loading (this allow more games to run, including some software like PRX Decrypter or LUA Player)
  • Automatical EBOOT decryption. It will decrypt EBOOTs on the fly. This will allow lots and lots of new games to start running. (But still requires some work to get most of them ingame).
  • Note: with those improvements I have noticed lots of games start running, and some more starting like: Princess Crown and Ys The Ark of Napishtim.

Minor improvements:

  • Now you can drag & drop executable files on the emulator window
  • Implemented bltzal/bltzall required for some games
  • Implemented DXT1
  • Fixed DX3 RB
  • Added lots of new APIs and fixed some of them.
  • Added a new versioning system. Releases now are denoted by the date eg: 20120407, git revision: 959572e63973662303c2dfd80f6fb60eaebb4072, and now also a count revision r256. This is an incremental number that indicates the number of commits to the repository.
