Not really back from the dead yet, but during work, my rss reader popped up this news, which should interrest the readers of this blog. So, what’s the news ? Xbox-scene.com reports that the console hacker community got their hands on a demo disc meant for display purposes on XBOX 360 shop kiosks and this disc will run even if it’s copied/burned on a DVD5R disc. This might not seem very significant, but the datafiles on the disc aren’t protected either. Still not very interresting for the Flash community. But then the news item reports on the “Live arcade games”. Turns out the game ‘hexic’ is a swf/flash file. Since the datafiles (movies, sounds, swf’s etc.) on this disc are not signed, this could mean running your own homebrew flashes on the XBOX 360, just by replacing the original swf with your own, and then reburning the image. At least it means one thing : the Flash player is ported to the xbox 360. Now I would like to know; which version, and with what kind of capabilities?

Since this post is one in a very long long while : I will return to the land of the living soon after this huge, huge project. Posting will be on a regular rate again. Also I got some very nice 8.5 sources lying around waiting to get posted, so Jan. 2006 is going to be a happy month on unitzeroone.com. Hope to see you all here again then. Until then : Happy New Year!
