Apparently by using a Pokémon glitch (I assume the one used in another TAS to reprogram the game into a My Little Pony song), they managed to take over the Super Game Boy SNES add-on, then the SNES itself, and used a controller cable to stream IRC-based Twitch chat via it.

Thats pretty cool!

That reminds me, is there any online IRC clients that automagically log you in to IRC? I know there is IRC Cloud, but I was wondering if there is anything else.

Yeah, I saw that, they showed it at the last AGDQ marathon. It was quite crazy.

Oh thanks for the vid. There was a Twitch link that supposedly showed it in action on the page, but for some reasons it showed a different video.

Nah, it's just plain dark magic to me, it's amazing to have Twitch chat into Pokémon Red, it'sd a wonderful shout-out to TPP.

Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...

There already is an IRC client for 84+ using DCS IIRC.

Yeah IIRC Merthsoft did it. It's possible to chat in many channels IIRC. You need to use a computer as a bridge for now, though.

Travis

Nice. Seemed a bit glitchy, though, or is that what their chat channel normally looks like? :) Looks like there's more GDQ videos for me to catch up on now., too :P I've also seen the arbitrary code execution hack of SMW a while back. These are really cool to watch because they're just like what happened with the TI-81 to execute user-supplied machine code. That's what they remind me of.

DJ Omnimaga

Ooh right I didn't think about the TI-81 hack haha. Now imagine if someone reprogrammed WFRNG inside Pokémon. :P

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

You ahve a few byttes of RAM available, you could do some sort of bootwrapper and then start programming something more advanced. WFRNG could be doable.
