How to clean your rom names:

If you download a rom pack on the web chances are that the names of the roms will be full of parentheses and square brackets. You need to clean your Rom files names as they need to be identical as the covers files names. Here is a batch script that can do this.

Batch :

  1. Run this script with the -n option and it will show you the result of the name modification.

rename -n 's/\(.*\)|\[.*\]| //g' *

2) If you are satisfied with the result remove the -n to actually do the renaming.

rename 's/\(.*\)|\[.*\]| //g' *

Alternatively you can use Advanced renamer for windows to clean your rom filenames : https://www.advancedrenamer.com/

 

Q&A:

Q: Why some of my games doesn’t have Covers?

A: The name of the game rom need to be identical as the name of the cover image. Chances are that there is a cover matching your game inside the CoverArt directory. Find it and rename it exactly like your rom. Be careful to keep the .png extension.ie : For the game « MarioUSA.gb » you will need to rename « Mario.png » to « MarioUSA.png » inside the CoverArt directory.

Testing kali linux on windows 10 with WSL

Second try :
Kali can be found directly on the windows store. This version is much more stable than the one i tried to patch from ubuntu with the git repo in my first try.

Some usefull tweeks can be found here : https://www.kali.org/news/kali-linux-in-the-windows-app-store/

Everything is working well for now.

Edit 1 )
To make nmap work, install it on windows and make an alias :

alias nmap='"/mnt/c/Program Files (x86)/Nmap/nmap.exe"'

WSL stand for windows subsystem for linux

Way to find clues inside a ctf box

we find a file that was created by the maker in the process of creation ie : flag.txt.

Flag.txt was created 22 august 2017

find / -type f -newermt 2017-08-20 ! -newermt 2017-08-24 -ls 2>/dev/null

We see all files that have changed between 20-08 and 24-08 (if needed we can change the range)

With that we can see interesting changes inside the boxes
