I have bought 2x copies of MALDITA CASTILLA EX PS4.

I am pretty sure these are just (Europe) but the versions sold in Spain, with Spanish text on the box.

So when I submit this should I put the region as Europe or Spain?

I also bought the Japanese Cursed Castilla Ex Limited Edition for the PS Vita, it came with an Audio CD so should I dump the audio disc?

You can't fake the region to rip UMD's, you need a PAL PSP, a long time ago using a pandora ms you could switch regions from USA Japan and Europe, but it was permanent, unless you re-done it back again.

I have a UMD Video with HK region and the only way I can dump it is with a Hong Kong Region PSP.

The fake region might do something more to do with the online side of things, if you fake the region to Japan, it might go on the Japanese sony network like my proper Japanese model does, maybe?

I have just tested this and it seems ok.

1st. I don't have a drive set up to dump my SSv2 from XGD3 discs.

But what I can dump is a bad SSv2 using my kreon drive, if you then inject it into the ISO, and run abgx360 it fixes the bad part and produces a fixed SS, inside the ISO, which you can then extract from the ISO.

If you then run ss_sector_range.bat you end up with a proper SSv2

I tested this on an XGD3 dump (not by me) with the SSv2 hashes in redump, found the corresponding SSv2 on abgx360, ran ss_sector_range.bat and the abgx360 one matched redump CRC32.

Then found one of my dumps on abgx360 downloaded the corresponding SSv2 ran ss_sector_range.bat and it matched mine, the one I had got from my disc and fixed.

So is it worth me submitting all of my XGD3 SSv2.bin files using the above method.

When was the data lost, quite some time ago?

I think it might be ok, looking at my redump.nfo collection, 2016 looks about right, I think what it is nearly every Wii game dumped in 2017+18 was a new dump, and a few I am still yet to submit.

Have some forum posts been deleted or vanished some how, according to the forums, my latest Wii verifications is saying 2016, think I have verified later than that, can you explain.

Their should be newer stuff than 2016-2015 lots of it. I have dumped tonnes of Wii games over the past 2 years and a lot of verifications.

Does the resulting iso work as it should.

If put in ISO folder, does it work as a game.
And if you put it in ISO\Video does it work as a Video.

If so I would say you are on the right track.

>So, does this have English + Arabic languages or not?

Based on tossEAC's dump it matches the case is the arabic one that should match here: http://redump.org/disc/19661/ which is NOT the same as number78's

> I guess it's still possible that an original SCES-52936 case+disc release exists somewhere?

Case yes, disc no. Please read here: http://forum.redump.org/topic/17625/ps2 … -verified/

Based on the evidence of tossEAC's SEALED disc, it is likely that number78's got swapped at some point disc/case.

I have had discs in the wrong cases, game shops in the UK, put the proper boxes on shelves and put the discs in sleeves behind the counter, or at least they all used to, I have picked up a regular box, and got home to find a platinum in the box, or vice versa. Many times. So any game that isn't factory sealed could potentially be in the wrong box. Especially if bought in the UK.

Sorry for the wait, yes 5's, on the picture side, it's a shiny disc with a readable ring on the picture side. No I have never seen the 6x5 before either.

No they don't have IFPI? I think. I heard a while ago that IFPI had to be added even if it wasn't their, is this wrong?

I will check for missing PVD's and produ8ce the ones needed. And I will remember that for future reference thanks.

OK, found the ring scans and I uploaded them here https://mega.nz/#!U4Q3XCjQ!jlP9MWWwqSLM … D0aiaiXLAM

I have around 200 verifications still to be added from the forums, could or would some one mind chipping away at a few of them, get some of them added, thanks.

I WAS WONDERING THE SAME THING!

Also what about the thing you should do with an infected disc, throw it in the trash, or send it to be destroyed so the virus or fungus doesn't leap from the trash can back into another cd.

Its like if you don't take viruses seriously it usually comes back to haunt you, Imagine if no one took AIDS serious we would all be dead, same thing with a cd virus take it serious or spread it? I personally would throw the disc in the trash smile every time. Like I did, but what if while touching something of mine it decided to live their, I could still have it passing it to every disc in my house potentially.

Maybe I should call the Rare/Exotic disease clinic and report I have a case of CD eating virus can you come prescribe it with something, or put it down, and disinfect my entire house and contents, not likely smile

If user7 links wont load try this, https://www.preservegames.org/2018/05/d … -disc.html

God knows how long cd's have on this planet, but to know they have a disc eating virus, definitely makes me worry.

You really need to have seen jamjam's disc, that was exactly the same weird fractal type pattern (random) looked the same but just more so.

Anyway don't worry about it, from what I can make out is maybe it doesn't spread easily, as its still quite a rare thing apparently, so that's good, but be on the look out especially if you buy lots of discs from say Japan/China.

https://www.nature.com/news/2001/010627 … 28-11.html

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldn … discs.html

Doesn't sound like what is on my cd, but their are definitely viruses that eat the aluminium on the disc.

They are definitely not surface scratches, but they are in the surface, as I just put my own surface scratch on the disc, got the same black mark, but mine looks like a scratch were as the other marks look like fractal graphics that have been eaten in by the virus, jamjam's looked the same but even more fractal graphicy, I am going to do to more scans of the marks in close up.

Good idea, but they don't look like surface scratches to me.

OK this no April fools joke, this is real.

Sometime ago jamjam sent me some scratched discs that he didn't want, that I said I would clean and dump, which I did do.

But one disc at least definitely wouldn't dump after cleaning had been done, which was weird, but thought nothing much of it, till about a week later, I happened to show a mate who isn't really in to computers but watches a lot of bullshit tv.

Anyway, can't remember how or why the subject was raised, but he said he heard about a virus that easts cd's literally, it lives on cd's like a parasite.

We had a look at the cd that jamjam sent me that wouldn't dump, and what it looked like was it had visible marks on the picture side, like someone had been drawing some sort of fractal graphics on the disc with a very fine tipped fountain pen. The marks were black, and were like little snail trails.

Anyway I decided to bin the disc in case any other discs caught the virus, I still didn't really believe it, until recently.

I got a batch of Jap PSX discs a little while ago of ebay, not looked after disc only, but one wouldn't dump, even though I gave it a good clean.

This also has black squiggly marks on it like jamjams but not as bad.

So I have scanned the disc, and found a scan from someone else who has the same disc.
At first I thought the black squiggles were part of the art, but they aren't because I got a scan of the disc of the net, and the one of the net has no marks like mine.

Look also how the marks go into the centre and get more random, this is definitely not part of the artwork.


The files are attached. Please look at them.

If you are a serious game collector this is quite worrying, all the more reason we get every single disc dumped before the virus spreads to every disc in the world.

This is like the AIDS of the CD world.

Please take a look at the scans, I am worried as I don't know how easy this virus can spread, and if it spreads easy, which I am preying it doesn't, and how long it takes before the virus becomes active on the newly infected disc. That's the real worry.

Now it has a proper surface scratch I done with a screwdriver, looks the same color, but look at the other black marks and how it goes really squiggly near the centre, trust me this is a virus that eats cd's. I am 100% sure.

These discs could be the same as the ones already in the db, I was sent them by someone, possibly the dumper. I dumped them anyone, and verified them.

I am sure this is still a bad dump, unless when you open the iso in isobuster, and all the files have the proper LBA and file sizes, like I said I don't think joining 2 isos gives you a good dump. It didn't with my umd I tried.

The iso that gets added to the join second doesn't even get seen if you no what I mean.
