Okay. So I'm not crazy after all:

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ … -34-10.png

Now I'm not sure what to put for the version. I'll fix the title though.

...it turns out that I screwed up the title.  Sorry guys. My fault.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ … 224543.jpg

On top of that, I just noticed the version on my label.

I know for a fact that I installed this on PCem to check some stuff at one point. And it DEFINITELY said it was 1.0 at one point after installing and running the game.


I'm going to confirm everything tomorrow night.

Recently, I got shipped a big stack of 32 French OXM discs to get repaired at my local video rental store.
19 (likely 22 once i get the remaining 3 fixed) match normal European or (Europe, Australia) OXM discs.
7 discs match nothing, so I'll be submitting them soon.
3 however, are somewhat troublesome.

They match the following dumps:

http://redump.org/disc/61036/

http://redump.org/disc/54791/
http://redump.org/disc/16630/

As you can tell, one of these is listed as Australian, while the other two are listed as German.

The Australian one says internally that it is "OXM Euro 24 EU". Or at least that's what UnleashX calls it when I start it.
But the French menu calls it #23.

For the  04/2004 German disc, UnleashX calls it "OXM Euro 27 OZ&EURO", while the French menu calls it #26


As for the 09/2003 German Disc, UnleashX calls it "OXM Euro 20", while the French menu calls it #19

I'm not sure what the proper names for these discs would be given this info.

The German discs are especially troublesome, given that other OXM discs exists in the DB with very similar demo lists: http://redump.org/disc/20666/ and http://redump.org/disc/20659/

Since we don't have a France/Germany region, I think we'd be forced to make those two (Europe) region. Thus, we'd need a way to differentiate between the existing Euro dumps and these new Euro dumps.

Also, one of the new dumps has "Hors-Serie Solutions Numero 08" on the label, but UnleashX calls it "OXM FR Special 10". It has IM00119E as a DMI string. I don't know what to call this one.

Also, keep in mind that all of these were sent to me as loose discs, so I don't know for sure what issue they were released with.

The other six dumps are:

IM02102E
IM02307E
IM04103E
IM04202E
IM04503E
IM04803E

Given the two existing French OXm discs, I think these correspond to:

Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 20
Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 22 (confirmed in menu)
Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 40
Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 41
Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 44
Le Magazine Officiel Xbox: Le DVD Numéro 47

Please let me know what you think.

So, I just dumped a copy of Carnival Games: Monkey See Monkey Do.

The checksum just so happens to match http://redump.org/disc/23435/.

So, what do I do now? The games have different titles in different regions, despite the disc being identical.

I found a weird bug with my copy of SWAT 2.

For some reason the SCM and the IMG are identical.

This hasn't happened with any other disc I own.

I'm including logs except for the eccedc.txt file, which just says something like:

"LBA[000000, 0000000], MSF[01:82:00], mode 1 User data vs. ecc/edc doesn't match"

for ALL the sectors on the disc.

EDIT: Based on the sector count and ringcodes, it should match or be similiar to http://redump.org/disc/51572/

EDIT2: I just found an old dump I made of the same disc, I can confirm that this disc matches the one I previously linked.

I vaguely remember Trurip containing extra info in the dat files. I don't see why we can't do the same.

I think it would be a good idea to get in touch with somone who is involved with the Nuon.

Ask them if any of the games (other than Shin-Chan 3) were officially sold in places other than the US, Canada, and Europe.

The thing is, I personally wouldn't change them to "World" unless we can get someone from one of those other regions to dump a copy.

To demonstrate why, I'll tell you a story about Xbox and Xbox 360 regions.

Xbox and Xbox 360 discs aren't strictly segregated by region like Nintendo discs. Each disc has a string on the disc that indicates the disc's serial number, version number, and region. These are the possible regions:
USA
Japan (can also be expanded to the rest of east Asia)
Europe (which includes Australia)
USA, Europe
USA, Japan
Japan, Europe
World (aka USA, Europe, Japan, which is what I think the "World" region should indicate).

We used to use this string when entering the region into the DB. Then we relealized that some games with a World release didn't always get released in all regions. So now we only list the country in which we were dumped.  Before we did that, we could have discouraged people from dumping a local copy of their game because they thought it was already dumped.

Something similar is probably unlikely to happen with the Nuon, but I'd like to try and keep our region methodology consistent when I can.

Sorry to everyone about the mistakes I made when adding these discs. I was in a hurry to get everything up before I had to go and do something.

EDIT: And to re-iterate what I said earlier, I'd like pictures of the disc's ringcodes. Also, DVDs often have two mould SID codes: one on the shiny side of the disc with the data, and one on the side with the disc's label. Not all DVDs have both, but I'd appreciate it if you would try to find them. I suggest using a magnifying glass or something similar if you have one. I'm saying this because if your disc is similar to my Nuon disc (http://redump.org/disc/53358/), you might not have included some ringcodes that are actually there. You can find a picture of that disc in the attachement to this post: http://forum.redump.org/topic/18298/add … ew-system/

EDIT2: Also, searching on Ebay and on Nuon-Dome showed me that those Nuon games have ISBN numbers. I add them to the database, so I'd like you to confirm that what I entered is accurate.

As the first person to dump a Nuon game for Redump, I'm going to make the executive decision to add Movie discs for the Nuon.

If anyone disagrees with me, I will link them to the CD-i Video section.

Regardless, thanks for dumping these.

EDIT: You forgot to include the whole barcode. Can you put down ALL the numbers you see on the barcode box area?
For example, you put down 2072928 for Buckaroo Banzai.
According to an ebay listing for it, the barcode is actually 027616862785. But we prefer to include spaces as they appear on the barcode box, so it would likely look like 0 27616 86278 5

https://www.ebay.com/itm/264180483414?epid=33792605


Also, pictures of the disc ringcode area would be appreciated.

EDIT2: Buckaroo Banzai also likely contains DVD CSS/CPPM copy protection because it's also a DVD movie. If you could dump it again using DICUI's DVD-Video profile, that would be great.

EDIT3: BUckaroo Banzai is a DVD-9, and DICUI's Nuon profile didn't include the layerbreak. You WILL want to dump it again as a DVD-Video. And, on second thought, it should belong in DVD-Video anyway.

I think I've found two bugs related to the Linux version of EccEdc.

Firstly, it won't work if you put parantheses in the name of the file you are dumping to (e.g. "FIFA 2003 (USA)" won't work, "FIFA 2003" will work).

Even without the parantheses, EccEdc still fails to do it's job properly. This is what happened after I removed parantheses:

Exec /home/aj/software/DIC_20190210/./EccEdc_linux.out check /home/aj/software/DIC_20190210/Atlantis - The Lost Empire - Trial by Fire.img

I'm currently running Antergos Linux.

EDIT: Apparently, it works fine when you don't include spaces in the filename

Then there's also some moderators (including myself as of lately) who are mainly adding their own dumps and not bothering at all with forum submissions due to late of time. The WIP discs are also packed full. I guess tenyuhuang should be nominated as moderator also for adding all the Chinese stuff.

That also includes myself. I apologize for this. I also agree with Tenyu being added as a mod. And if you looked at the WIP queue, any sensible person would agree.

As far as Sadikyo goes, I'm not entirely sure (EDIT: At least, that was my thought when I started writing this post). I can definitely vouch for his loyalty. I'm just not sure if he has the experience to be a moderator. He only has 139 dumps, all of which are PS1,PS2,PS3,PSP,Saturn or DVD-Video. Granted, these all seem to be rather expensive or rare discs, which I'm appreciative of. However, there are going to be a lot of forum posts for systems other than these. Will he be able to handle discs from other systems without making mistakes?

As far as experience goes, having seen lots of discs DOES have tangible benefits in terms of moderation. For example, a while ago, Profes submitted this disc: http://redump.org/disc/59259/

The mastering code as he submitted it was "#113361   2414874 01"
Having seen discs with a similar ringcode (http://redump.org/disc/45563/ and http://redump.org/disc/21802/), I asked him if there was any tiny text in the form of a date. He looked again, and it turns out that such text was there.

Likewise, when a PC disc with a standard early-2000s Sonopress ringcode pattern gets submitted with the mould SID listed as "IFPI 1OC5", I can instantly tell that it's supposed to be "IFPI 10C5".

Granted those are problems encountered by a PC dumper and moderator. If Sadikyo exclusively goes after Sony systems, he'll have little trouble with their nice and consistent Sony DADC ringcodes. Just as long as he reads up on the patterns that exist in European releases as well before adding them.

However, if Sadikyo does go after all the console dumps in the forums, that'll make my job of adding PC forum dumps easier by making them easier to find. In that regard, I support him being added as a moderator.

But if he does get added as a moderator, I want some some of the moderators to give him lessons on how to be a moderator. I was given almost no instruction on how to actually do a lot of moderator stuff upon being promoted, and I had to ask people to actually figure stuff out.

EDIT: I also recall him complaining about the sorry state of the dump forum than anyone else has in the VGPC Discord, so I get the feeling he'll have the dedication to get through this.

@ajshell1 : It's intentional. It still remains a data sector, which can be mode 0, 1 or 2. All within a data track.

I know. The point is that dumps with SecuROM are supposed to be listed with a single error. Currently, EdcEcc isn't displaying that error.

Hey sarami. I think I found a bug with EdcEcc. Perhaps "oversight" is a better word than "bug":

My copy of Monsters, Inc: Scare Island produces this when dumped with DIC in the EdcEcc.txt file:

By way of comparison, here is my dump of Monsters, Inc. Scream Team Training:


LBA[257659, 0x3ee7b], MSF[57:17:34], mode 2 form 1, SubHeader[1](IsInterleaved[00]), [2](ChannelNum[00]), [3](SubMode[09]), Form 1, Data, End audio, [4](CodingInfo[00])

[ERROR] Number of sector(s) where mode is invalid: 1

Basically, it doesn't notice the Mode 1 sector since Scare Island is normally Mode 2.

I'd just like to say that I'm disappointed by your behavior, iR0b0t.

While I do think a modicum of paranoia is appropriate for someone in your position, I'm fairly certain that your paranoia is misdirected in this case.

First of all, I want to make one thing perfectly clear:

I WANT "USA, Australia" TO BE ADDED AS A REGION ASAP.

To demonstrate why, let's look at all 18 PC games that are considered "World" dumps: http://redump.org/discs/region/W/system/pc

Now, I've been told elsewhere that "World", at least as No-Intro defined it, is "Japan, USA, Europe". Given the nature of PC stuff, I think "World" should mean "Asia, America(s), Europe".

Age of Mythology Disc 1 and 2: Originally dumped by Nexy as USA, then dumped by Mock. Should be "USA, Australia"

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga Disc 1 and 2: Dumped by Pikmin as Australia, then dumped by Monocrom. "Australia, Korea" seems a bit specific, so maybe "Australia, Asia"?

Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil: "Regions dumped: USA, Europe, Korea". This is correct.

Grand Theft Auto IV (World) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Disc 2) was "USA, Europe", and was then dumped by Pietro, as Brazillian. It is my opinion that in this case, it should just stay "USA, Europe" with "Brazil" in the comments

Grandia II (Install Disc): It says in the comments field "USA + Australia".

Interstate '76 (Disc 1) (Install CD) was "Brazil", but then changed to "World". I don't exactly know what it should be. Jackal might know.

Quake 4 and Quake 4 (Bonus DVD): Was "Australia", then "Europe, Australia", and then "World". So I suspect this is "USA, Europe, Australia". I'd probably change this to "USA, Europe".

Quake II was "Brazil", then dumped by mock. So, "Brazil, Australia", which should probably be "USA, Australia" with "Dumped in Brazil" in the comments.

Red Faction (Disc 2) (Multiplayer Disc) is odd. 3 people have dumped it, and all of them had different disc 1s. Nexy dumped a US copy, Jackal dumped a Europe copy, and Doshin dumped a Australia copy. So, "USA, Europe"

SimAnt and SimLife were both dumped by Puff0rx as "Australia", then changed to world when I dumped an American copy.

SWAT 4 (Disc 2) is was originally Brazil, then dumped in Europe. I'd change this to "America, Europe" with "Brazillian copy" in the comments.

Unreal Tournament (Disc 2) (Extras) was "USA, Europe" until monocrom dumped it. In other words, it's using "World" correctly!

Xbox 360 Accessories 1.2 was added as "World". I don't know what to do with it.

Zork Nemesis: The Forbidden Lands (Disc 2) is undoubtably "USA, Australia". There are American and Australian versions of discs 1 and 3, but disc 2 is listed as "World"


I also own a copy of Marble Drop and Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 that matches Australian dumps. And I won't verify them until the "USA, Australia" region is added.

I'd just like to point out that the most recent versions of DIC I tested (The stable one and test version 20181116 95206) still don't detect the SmartE protection on http://redump.org/disc/38957/.

I'm going to test and see if the dump DIC produces matches the DB version.  I doubt it will.

Edit: Nope. No it doesn't.

Also, there's this forom the EdcEcc.txt log:

sarami, do you think you could get your CSS tool to be able to detect RCE protection? Currently that CSS tool outputs all DVD-Video information needed except for RCE protection info. It would be great if we could get DIC/CSS to detect it without the need to use DVDDecrypter.

It has recently come to my attention that some visual novels were released in the UMD-Video format rather than on the standard PSP-game format. Games like these are called "UMD-PG" (which stands for "Players Game"

An example of this would be Aki No Urara No Akaneiro Shoutengai
http://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php … amp;n=0351

With this in mind, I think we should add the UMD-Video category.

Besides, we're datting CD-i VIdeo discs, so we might as well dat standard UMD-Video discs as well.

Once the system gets set up, I'd be willing to moderate the platform.

EDIT: This seems to be a rather complete list of UMD-PG games: https://vndb.org/r?q=umd-pg;fil=;s=released;o=d;p=1

Many thanks to rockleevk for bringing this format to my attention

Okay. Serious question for everyone:

Does anyone care if people don't specifiy if discs have RCE protection?

Because DICUI doesn't specifiy if it has it or not.

I'm convinced that it's rare enough that we probably won't every run into one, and that the only reason we've marked it in some discs is because DVD Decrypter included it in their scan

I'd love to hear the insight of other people
