Empty Those Windows Mobile Rounds with Modern Battlefield

Long after Microsoft themselves decided to jump ship from Windows Mobile to its successor Windows Phone, the developers on our lovely forums continue the tradition of making the most out of our devices, no matter what vintage the OS may be from. Unfortunately however, one area that has traditionally found difficulty in keeping pace is gaming.

Generally, platforms such as Android and iOS seem to receive all the first-person shooter love with releases such as N.O.V.A and Modern Combat. Now, thanks in part to XDA forum member raving_nanza, this can be said for the gaming situation on Windows Mobile. While not quite as immersive as its cousins on more modern mobile OSes, Modern Battlefield shows die hard Windows Mobile loyalists that their devices are far from dead.

The game’s currently released beta version is fully functional, complete with plenty of guns, sounds, and UI refinements. However, the future holds even more significant features such as updated graphics and more! In the words of the developer:

TODO LIST:
*update graphics

(buildings, enimies, and vehicles etc)
*add bullet animation
*make blood animation slightly transparent
*add a save/load feature

(im not exactly sure how to do save/load but ill try)
*improve the zoom feature 
(gona try and remove the Zoom Out button so its just one button to Zoom In/Out)
*create inventory menu
(inventory menu will pause the game for the ability to change gun freely with a description of the guns, this will replace the Zoom Out button)

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
