About Beatmania, I renamed them it was a mess before. Some games was named Beat Mania and some Beatmania, so I google it and to me it seams Beatmania is the correct one?

PunBB 1.4.3 has been released

I have been dumping many games using the NEC CDR-1901A drive lately, and to my surprice it is working byfar the best compared to all other drives I have tested, dumping starts right away always.. and mostly I can dump scratched games on 8x speed and completely new discs at 16x speed.. my drive that I have suffers from a tiny mechanical failure though (Needs to put the disc in many times before it loads it up), so I have ordered a new one aswell, these drives are beginning to be realy old my drive that I have right know is from 1998.. they are very cheap on ebay in general aswell which is a big + ..

I agree 100% they should be dumped.. I myself has ordered some aswell..

Nope i dont like this change at all.. I agree that Taikenban is demo therefor it should be (Demo) but nothing more than that.. thats my 2 cents atleast.. A discussion about this would have been great btw..

Here is an example of what kind of differences we are talking about..

I compared the (U) Track 03 with the (E) one and to me it seams that the european track is missing som data at the end..

I Think Track 03 on (U) and (E) should have the same CRC, Track 02 match (E) and Track 03 have the same size on both releases..

I now we have discused this before, but why isn't the Lightspan Educational Discs organized under letter L in the db..
Example..

Lightspan Educational Disc  - 16 Tales 2
Lightspan Educational Disc  - Write Away 7

or just..

Lightspan: 16 Tales 2
Lightspan: Write Away 7

And so on.. I think it looks nicer in the db.. and you can find this unusal games/educational titles easier..

Any thoughts about this??

By the way, have you guys tested Pakkiso.. its a excelent complement for Packiso/Packps2

Ok, it works, It takes about 1/4 the time to rename on my system.. Excelent thanks iR0b0t
And on PS2 that is alot.. smile

iR0b0t Do you use 7z in command prompt or the File manager one?
I have version 4.60 beta will that do..

Ok, I have renamed PS2 games for about 2 days now, and compress them using packiso/pakkiso, but if I want to rename some of the games can I do this without recompress everything...

maybe this moded TOC is even part of protection then
let's see what results pnz will get

I think so to.. Great that you added this info..
On thing about the Swap Trick.. It only worked on my two Plextor drives.. My Sammy and Nec couldn't read thoes last sectors..

The image size mismatch was fixed during dumping.. using Swap Trick.. I managed to dump the complete disc and No Errors in CDMAGE.. So I guess PNZ could do the same with his Japan discs that had size mismatch..

Ok, thanks iRob0t.. Your right the TOC must be corrupted..

As you probably already have notised, Im dumping my complete PSX Collection, Everything went fine til I came across This Title "Disney's Story Studio, Mulan (E) [SCES-01695]"

The game have only one Track, I have dumped the game 4 times on 4 different drives, and the file that IsoBuster creates is the same every time (So I guess the dumping process is done properly), when I use psxt001z to fix the image it looks like this:

c:\MULAN_1>psxt001z --fix "Track 01.iso"

Is this some sort of mastering error, or have this accured before??
And when I use the command to check if the disc has libcrypt, It takes about 15 minutes for it to complete and it looks like this:

What is the proper output of a scanned barcode? It is without spaces if i'm not mistaken. My vote is for no spaces.

Yea its without spaces, I agree it should be without spaces.. and the solution in the db when there are more than one barcode reported works great.

XXXXXXXXX (Germany)
XXXXXXXXX (Spain)

And so on..

I agree with you Havikoro, DOL M5 is not an issue on Wii and shouldnt be on GameCube also.. As you said version can be found on two different places, I think the ring and the First few lines with info about version and gamename from a HexEditor should be mandatory and not DOL MD5..

Maybe some of you already know this but you dont have to read out the version number in offset 7 in a hexeditor, you can find out the version number from the Ring also, check this out.

Wii Sports

206L1805 RVL-RSPP-0A-0 JPN S0  The underlined number represent version so this is Version 1.00

107J2801 RVL-RSPP-0A-1 JPN S0 This is version 1.01


Can someone please add all my Wii/GC/PS3 dumps to the DB, I cant dump anymore games until then..
