The headset that comes the with Xbox One is a solid ‘OK’ on the headset-scale of terrible to excellent. That said, the adapter that actually attaches the headset to the controller is pretty fantastic; it has mute (with an indicator led), volume up and down – what else could you ask for?
This post will detail the steps I took to remove the stock speaker/microphone and add two 3.5mm sockets so that any headphone/microphone can be used instead.
Today, Grand Theft Auto V drops. The world stops. If you were too busy to notice, Rockstar Games, along side the release of the game have also released a number of companion apps:
The iFruit Mobile Application
Grand Theft Auto V: The Manual
The manual has a fantastic map viewer. After digging through the source assets of the manual app, I quickly found the map images. From what I can see, there are three different maps.
Using the magic of php and a generous 20 lines of code later, I’ve stitched together the 1024 images that make up each of the base maps into single (huge) image. WARNING: Some of the images are quite large, weighing in at a resolution of 8192×8192 (67,108,864 pixels) and nearly 70MB.
