Remotely control your iPhone/iPod Touch using PC

Hi guys, if you ever wondered to use your PC/Mac keyboard to type on your iPhone/iPod Touch, wait no more as there's been a way to do so.

These guide were meant to be use on a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch with firmware 3.0 and above. It might work with firmware below that but I doubt no one haven't upgrade theirs.

To save the hassle for reading those guides, I had listed several applications and steps you would need to do to do just that.


* Wireless Access Point (Both PC/Mac and iPhone/iPod Touch must be connected to a wireless network)
* A VNC client
* VNC server for iPhone/iPod Touch


1) Go to Cydia app and search for Veency. Download, install and restart SpringBoard when prompted to.

2) Choose and download one of the following VNC server/client programs for PC below:

UltraVNC (Free)

TightVNC (Free)

RealVNC (Free/License (Paid)

3) Once installed, launch the viewer only (your iPhone/iPod Touch will serve as VNC Server)

4) Enter your iPhone/iPod Touch Wi-Fi IP address in the host address field. You can get the IP address via Setting -> WiFi or slide the top menu bar (if you're using SBSettings)

5) Click connect. A message will prompt on your iPhone/Ipod Touch screen. Tap accept and your iPhone/iPod Touch screen will be rendered or shown on your monitor.

* If it refuses to connect by showing a message 'Failed to connect', right click on the respective Viewer program -> click 'Run as...' -> Untick 'Protect my computer and data from unauthorized program activity' or run as administrator. You should be able to connect by now.

No Wi-Fi

The following guide was meant to be use ONLY if you do not have any wireless access point. You'll need to connect your iPhone/iPod Touch to your PC/Mac via USB cable.

Use Veency and iTunnel.exe to connect without Wi-Fi

[PSP Guide] Playing DOOM on your PSP

Just recently I suddenly got the passion to play back those games which I played during my childhood such as Chrono Trigger (SNES), Donkey Kong Country (SNES) and DOOM (PC). Gosh, those graphic and music sure brings back a lot of memories.

Well as you might probably known now, PSP is the renowned 'King of All Gadgets'. With that being said, it is clear that it is no problem at all if we throw DOOM at it.

So here's a simple guide I managed to compiled from various source on 'How to play DOOM on your PSP'. As usual, it is better for you to know some of the term before you proceed to the tutorial, just to know what's going on and which is which.

Guide on 'How to play DOOM on your PSP

Some reading (optional):

DOOM - What is Doom?

iWAD - a.k.a iD WAD. Contains all the actual maps and the graphics used to draw them. This is the same for every system. In other words, it is the original / official map released by ID Software (DOOM publisher) itself.

pWAD - a.k.a Patched WAD. Custom map packs based on iWAD. It is basically the custom map packs or mod made by DOOM fans from all over the globe. It can be Half-Life, Golden Eyes or even Mario like mods.

How to Download and Run DOOM?


Before you proceed, make sure you:

1) Installed CFW on your PSP with the latest or 3.xx version and above.


1) Download both DOOM 1 and DOOM 2 WAD.

* These files are the full registered version, unlike the demo which you usually found online. Quite tough for me to nail them down. But here it is.

Link (DOOM 1 iWAD)

Link (DOOM 2 iWAD)

2) Download PSP DOOM v1.4.

Link (PSP DOOM v1.4)

3) Extract PSP DOOM v1.4 into somewhere convenient, e.g Desktop. You shall see two folders.

4) Copy the folder 'DOOM' into your PSP memory stick with the following path:

Example: H:\PSP\GAME\DOOM (H: is the drive of your PSP memory stick ms0, I shall be using H: as the path for the subsequent steps)

5) Copy and paste both the WAD files you downloaded from Step1 into /DOOM/iwad.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Path: H:\PSP\GAME\DOOM\iwad

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
6) Terminate the USB mode and navigate the XMB into Games. You shall find a game titled DOOM there.

7) To select which DOOM you like to play. Select 'File Settings' after you load the game. Select Main WAD and choose the version of DOOM you would like to play. In this case: DOOM.WAD (DOOM 1) or DOOM2.WAD (DOOM 2)

* You can choose to play those PWAD as well if you managed to download one and placed it under the 'pwad' folder.

*8) Also, please read the manual that is in the DOOM folder : PSPDoom.readme.pdf

*9) If you like to play mods such as Golden Eyes or Half Life under DOOM environment, please check the links below that contains links to download just those mods:

Just some of the PWADs

A massive collection of DOOM PWADs


There is also yet another DOOM game for PSP, DOOM Legacy (link). It does support additional features that is similar to modern FPS such as crosshair and full screen mode. The drawbacks is it does not have music (only sound effect) and does not seems to be able to render the floor for DOOM 2 well. Aside from that it would be a great DOOM homebrew games.




A couple of things you should know for Doom PSP (for those lazy to read the manual):

1) Make sure you rename the WAD files appropriately (not case sensitive) in correspondent to the game itself.

Shareware Doom WAD = doom1.wad
Registered Doom WAD = doom.wad
The Ultimate Doom WAD = doomu.wad
Doom 2 WAD = doom2.wad
Final Doom Plutonia WAD = plutonia.wad
Final Doom TNT WAD = tnt.wad

2) Control used:

Analog stick - run
D-pad - forward/back/turn
Left shoulder (LTRIGGER) - Strafe left
Right shoulder (RTRIGGER) - Strafe right
CIRCLE - Action
CROSS - Fire
START - Pause

The following controls are used when you are pressing the TRIANGLE button:

D-Pad UP - Change gamma setting
D-Pad DOWN - Toggle the detail setting
D-Pad LEFT - Previous cheat
D-Pad RIGHT - Next cheat
LTRIGGER - Previous weapon
RTRIGGER - Next weapon


Enjoy playing DOOM on your PSP!

PSP As PC Game Pad

Got a PSP but don't want to fork out extra money just to get a game pad to play games in emulators? Well here's a great solution for all of you!

I have tested them and I started to think that I'm glad to have a PSP! It does it all!

Alternative 1 - PSP as Wireless Game Pad

This tutorial will turn your PSP into a wireless game pad. Do note that your PSP must be connected wirelessly to any Access Point in order for it to work. Some installation is needed but it's pretty much self explained and simple to setup. I have come to notice that the green LED indicator blink intensively even though you are not using it. Perhaps much battery life is to be drained? Will post my result soon.

Link : http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/f133/tutorial-turn-your-psp-into-a-wireless-gamepad-t241923/

Alternative 2 - PSP as Wired Game Pad

For this no wireless access point is needed. All you need to have is a USB connector that connect the PSP to the PC itself.

They're a funny old bunch, those latter day saints. Rather than picking names from their heritage, or the Bible, the Utah Mormons tend to make them up. Sometimes they'll combine the parents' names into one (BenDonna, for example). Other times it's impossible to quite understand what their parents were thinking; names like Zestpool and Zon'tl aren't uncommon.
We can understand why you might be jealous of names like these. After all, they are far more interesting and exciting than your own. Luckily, help is at hand with the Mormon Name Generator; simply indicate your first name, last name and your gender preference below, and we'll Mormonise your moniker.

Return Fire (3DO)

I still remembered playing this game while I'm still a child during primary school with my little sister. Heck we have such a wonderful time together. I still think it is the best Capture the Flag type of game until now.

Here's the original 3DO ISO image for such an amazing game.

* Note that you will need to burn it using a CD and insert it to your 3DO console, if you ever or still have it. Else, you will need a 3DO emulator such as FreeDO as posted in my earlier post to emulate it. A BIOS file is needed for the emulator in order to play this game.

Before the advent of Internet the crime that most people are concerned about was real-world crime which can be read on everyday newspaper.

No physical equipment is also required. What it requires is a computer, a skilled professional human and an access to the Internet. It's all that it takes.

2 Greatest PC Adventure games of all time!

What defines a solid good pure adventure game. And by pure I meant an adventure game without action or any moves which you'll need to perform ON TIME in order to play it, e.g: Tomb Raider or Resident Evil. Typical adventure games element include the following elements which is essential:

  • Full voice dialogue and sound quality without any sound compression, a.k.a loss-less format such as PCM.
  • Some of the dialogue must have humor element within it. Partial humor is enough. Exceesive use of humor within the dialog might spoil the game by a huge par.
  • The voice acting skills must be good, the pitch and tone plays a vital role here.
  • No pressure of time during the play through.
  • There is no time limit throughout the game play.
  • Contains puzzle element which requires the player to solve it before proceeding further to the story. The puzzle cannot be too complex though which might discourage player to solve it.
  • Element of surprise and anticipation. Example, player might acquire certain item that might seems useless at the moment of acquisition, but might prove useful at the later part of the story.
  • Last but not least, a perfect and well-flow story line.
Some might argue that superb 3-D graphic is definitely an important element that cannot be left out in any games. I doubt it is true for every game. The two of the greatest adventure game which I shall reveal later is a perfect example on how graphic DOES NOT need to be on par with that of Crysis in order to be an outstanding adventure game.

You might heard it or not. Here are 2 of the greatest adventure genre game of all time for PC.

1) The Longest Journey

2) Siberia

It's a shame that there is no any adventure games being developed after 2000 YET that can be on par with the aforementioned masterpiece.

Playing old/new games on Widescreen AR

I guess it's all about widescreen gaming now. Unfortunately for older game released before 2007 wide screen was not the norm as it were now and most of those games just support native 4:3 aspect ratio. To play those games in Wide screen format you'll need to tweak their configuration file (eg: setup.ini).

Confirmed solution for games that does not support widescreen format (AR of 16:9 or 16:10) can be found at the following site: Just a slight tweak and you will be able to play those games at widescreen, such as Red Alert 2!

What is '1337' or 'leet'

You might seen the word ‘1337′ numerous time in some online game forum and notice that people posting their IMBA (imbalance) equipment with unusually good options or status there. Well here’s something you should know about it if you want people recognized you as a gamer. Seems interesting enough when you get to know the word.
Definition: 1337, and its other spelling, leet, is a hacker term from the days of Windows 95. It is used to say “elite”, or just “leet” for short.
Leet comes from the mid 1990’s when an infamous hacker group would use the digital port numbered 31337 to take remote control of Windows 95 computers. The port 31337 came to be known as the “elite” port, with the jargon spelling using numbers.
To this day, 1337 and leet are used to describe very serious Internet gamers with a high level of skill. It is considered a negative connotation, and is still associated with hacking.
Related terms to leet: hax0r, chixor, 3ber, epeen, r0×0r. These hacker-type terms were originally purposely spelled with numbers to avoid censorship programs. Today, the numeric spelling is used as a form of subculture and expressiveness.
