Unreleased console from the big THREE

We're urgently fundraising for an unreleased games console from the big three game companies.

There is less than 5 of these known to exist, and we have the chance to secure one and document it on our new channel.

All data/software found on the system will be shared with researchers, but donators will get first access. High res 4k video will be done on the device and it's internals for future reference.

This fundraiser is time sensitive.

Request Criware/Scaleform H264 encoder

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone here has the Criware/Sofdec2 H264 encoding tool, this was apparently included in later Criware SDK releases, and Scaleform GFx had a "Scaleform Video" component available separately which used it, before GFx was discontinued.

Filenames for the encoder are sofdec2encH264.exe or medianocheH264.exe, medianoche was the one Scaleform included, seems only an older medianoche.exe without H264 support is available right now :(

It'd help the NieR Automata movie upscale projects a lot, we've found a way to patch in H264 support into the game but don't actually have any H264 videos to use it with (CRI use their own USM container format which isn't that well known), using H264 would help reduce sizes & improve quality of the upscaled cutscene prerenders.

Thanks for reading, hopefully it'll show up eventually!

(E: many thanks to the anonymous user that sent it in! It was protected with licensing checks though, which is probably why this hadn't been released previously, luckily those checks were pretty simple to bypass. I've forwarded the fixed version on to the NA cutscene modders, if anyone else is in need of the H264 encoder feel free to get in touch!)

Nah I was sent an updated version of the Scaleform encoder, the last one before Scaleform GFx was discontinued. Seems it can create videos for PS4 though, but no code for it.

Only thing I've found for modern CRI SDKs is a partial PC SDK on archive.org, had some headers/libs but no tools sadly.

Seems at some point around the mid 2010s people were able to get eval SDKs from them pretty easily, but nobody I asked still had the files for them, looks like CRI started vetting their eval requests more now since none of my requests even got a single answer :(

Would you happen to be able to chuck the encoder my way, tried to shoot you a DM but not sure how to on this site
