In continuing the series, here’s what I seen and done so far.
- Finished my documentation of the Cemu Patreon DRM system in its current form. This was done in the hope of showing weaknesses and thus showing potential improvements that can be made in future. However, it seemed none of the advice was taken, so I took the next logical step and reversed engineered the serial number scheme, while doing no modifications of the executable at all. This culminated in a keyfile generator+loader which works on past and present versions of Cemu. The results of the research are on my Github as well as documented in a blog post here.
- Finalized my Odroid+Android development setup. The Odroid XU4 looks nice in its case, I find it quite cute.
- AVs are proven to be snakeoil. I knew this for ages from false positives with what I program, glad that its now been made public by other people that AVs can be in most cases pointless.
- Dirt 4 is coming out. Looks rather nice, cannot wait. Absolutely loved Dirt 2, though the GFWL DRM was a pain, so a xlive.dll proxy took care of that, such as for Bulletstorm too. Questioning whether to get Bulletstorm’s remaster too.
I spent some time looking into the DRM system of Cemu 1.7.0’s Patreon build. The goal was to get the emulator to run without Internet access and without any watermarks to link to people. This post is a natural extension of the previous post dedicated to reversing Cemu, in that keyfiles are generated so that no executable patching is done at all.
In the interests of being concise, I figured I post the following, because a certain reddit moderator did want precise proof of what I know:

Here is a guide for those wanting to use the quite common SDR/DVBT RTL2832U COFDM demodulator on Windows 10. The Realtek RTL832u chip is used very commonly in the SDR radio scene.
If you use software such as SichboPVR on Windows 10 with the default drivers and try to tune the channels, this happens:
This guide is an attempt to easily remedy that. I have used this method many times without fail.
Tried to find something to strip EXIF information from photos.
I have managed to do some work for PELock’s compression methods. Namely I have now implemented two high-compression plugins.
Here is some PELock discount codes that the PELock author shared with me:
“PELOCK-15-P” – for the Personal License
“PELOCK-15-S” – for the Standard License
Thanks to Bartosz Wójcik for this 😀
