Also, the game itself has English, Spanish, and French language support.

I'll test it out. I'll try to give you the results tomorrow.

I just finished dumping my (formerly user7/dizzzy's) copy of Stealth + Wipeout Pure.

Here are the output hashes:

ULUS-10058.iso  5ef803ca  386bfb26919a8f95d7300227b5b3d215  ea642afa63a3c36b7f55c407484ef4dc030cd5f2

Now what?

Also, sarami, you need to make this thing dump faster. It's too slow currently. It took several hours for my copy to dump.

(I'm attaching all output files except the 0B _mainError.txt file (because I don't want to upload an empty file tongue).

It's not working on my hacked PSP3000 with 660 PRO-C.

Pressing the Note button does nothing, and the eboot version cannot be started because the data is corrupt.

By the way sarami, could you make the _disc.txt file specifically mention the layerbreak at some point?

Please make it say something like "Layerbreak: 1336160" somewhere in the output files.

This is a required field for DVD-9 submissions, so this should be "idiot proof".

Well, I'll be your personal tester if you want. Just give me the latest compiled binaries, and I'll let you know if they work or if they don't.

I seem to be getting a different error:

[F:TestUnitReady][L:44] GetLastError: 25, Inappropriate ioctl for device

I seem to be getting that error regardless of whether I have a disc mounted to that point or not.

Honestly, I'm not sure if you are going about it the right way. The way Windows and Linux handle mounting of drives is fundamentally different. I think it would be smarter to have us select the device name (e.g. /dev/sr0 or /dev/cdrom) rather than a mount point. I know that you might not like that since it'll make your programming experience harder and your code messier, but I think the way it is now is only going to lead to more problems. However, that's just my opinion.

I'm not sure what exactly you'll need for full Linux support in the future, but I'm willing to help you in any way that I can. Including financially.

Also, if you could run "lsblk" in WSL, that might help us out.

Oh my fucking god! I love you sarami!

Time to test this baby out!

Disregard this post. I thought I made a mistake with one of my older dumps, but I didn't

"Cannot be uneven"? I just dumped several Star Wars bonus DVDs with Xbox demos on them, and they all had odd values in the layerbreak field as well. This was also the case with my DVD-Video version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07. So I'm not sure what the issue is. Is DIC the problem?

A while ago, my dump of Phantom of Inferno (http://redump.org/disc/50823/)  had a blatantly wrong layerbreak. I got called out for it, and then tried getting the layerbreak from DVD-Decryptor.

Well, that layerbreak is WRONG.

This is the output of DICUI when dumping the exact same disc. I'm leaving all the non-relevant bits blank because I've already written them down:

EDIT: DVD Decrypter says "Region: 1,2,3,4,5,6,8 - RCE Protection: No"
"Copyright Protection System Type: CSS/CPPM"
Region 7 is missing apparently because that was "Reserved for future use" according to wikipedia.

My position on this issue:
For most consoles: Meh, go ahead. Nintendo and Sony make sure version info is consistent. Don't do this for the GameWave though.

For PC: NO NO NO NO NO NO!

Version info is FAR too messy on PC for this to be in the filename. It doesn't belong there.


If you disagree, look at these and consider what the revised filename would be:
http://redump.org/disc/21147/
http://redump.org/disc/45369/
http://redump.org/disc/49850/

And I believe putting the version information for http://redump.org/disc/11223/ in the filename will break stuff since slashes aren't allowed on Windows files.  Yes, that game has two versions. Running sshock.exe gives a version of F1.6S, and running cdshock.exe gives a version of F1.6C.

Besides, I doubt Jackal will ever agree to this change.

Hi sarami. I have a stupid question. All of my batch files I use for dumping CDs with DIC have the "/d8" flag. However, some people I've talked to said that they don't use the /d8 flag.

As long as a proper Plextor is used, will it make a difference if that flag is or isn't used?

I was talking with some of my friends on the VGPC Discord channel, and we were talking about getting PSX ringcodes with a scanner.

We had talked about how LEDs didn't work, but incandescent lights did work. oezr had just posted an image showing the spectrum of LEDs, which showed that incandescent bulbs produced a lot of infrared light.

My thought was that the infrared light is what causes the ringcode to be visible.

With that in mind, I grabbed my nearest source of infrared light: the "Night Vision googles" that had at one point came from the Prestige Edition of CoD MW2, but I had picked up at a Goodwill. More info here http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/sangria/430144

These are the results:

I would appeciate it if anyone could pick up a cheap IR flashlight on Amazon or something to confirm that IR lights work for all scanners.

The MS-PL is very permissive, why would it cause any issues with porting to Linux? Especially compared to the GPL which isn't very permissive at all.

According to http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/License:MsPL
"This is a free software license; it has a copyleft that is not strong, but incompatible with the GNU GPL. We urge you not to use the Ms-PL for this reason."

That incompatiblity with the GPL is my main concern. MANY programs on Linux use the GPL, including the Linux kernel itself. From what I understand, license incompatibilities can cause problems when trying to port software to Linux. For example, ZFS was released under the CDDL. While this is a free software license, it is not compatible with the GPL, and implementations of ZFS have suffered as a result of this. (See here for more info: https://www.fsf.org/licensing/zfs-and-linux)

I just want to try and avoid any such situations IF I can ever get DIC ported to Linux. That's a big "if", but I'd honestly be willing to pay someone to handle the port.

EDIT:
And if sarami doesn't like the MIT license, there are plenty of other GPL compatible llicenses without a strong copyleft, such as the Apache 2.0 License and the Modified BSD License. More can be found here https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-li … leLicenses

I don't like strong copyleft. Is MS-PL awkward for you (or in general)? I don't know much about licence.

Thanks for considering me. I had a pipe dream of getting DIC ported to Linux at some point, either by you or someone else. Licensing it under the GPL would probably make that slightly more feasible.

However, if you don't like a strong copyleft, can I ask you to use the MIT License? While it is compatible with the GPL, it doesn't have a strong copyleft.

I'm also concerned that the MS-PL is a rather obscure license. In my experience, people prefer to work with projects with more common licenses. And as far as common licenses go, 44.69% of Github projects used it in 2015 (https://blog.github.com/2015-03-09-open … ithub-com/).

I appreciate the fact that you were willing to consider this. This is ultimately your project, so you can do what you want with it.

I agree.

BUT, we have 13297 existing PC dumps.

Who's going to fill in that info for all those discs?

I agree with this, but what is to be done with discs that can run on both 68k AND PPC Macs?

And should the Turbo-CD database be split based on which version of the System Card they use?

I'd like to ask why DIC is licensed with Microsoft Public License. Is it dependent on a piece of code that uses the MS-PL, or would it be feasible to change the license to the GPL?

https://github.com/saramibreak/DiscImag … er/LICENSE

I have a few things that I would like to talk about regarding regions and flags.

1. I think we should get a (USA, Australia) region. Some American discs of mine matched an Australian dump, and they were marked as "World". This seems especially common with Maxis games, so I think this deserves it's own region category.

2. What is the origin of the flags for the Arabic language and the Tamil language? I don't hate them, but I'm interested in where they come from.

3. We are lacking a flag for Latin America. I'm not sure of what flag would be useful for this purpose. Maybe make something like the "ASIA" flag?

4. Several languages are missing flags. Hebrew is an easy fix, just use the flag for the Israel region. Gaelic is a bit tricker, since there is both a Scottish Gaelic and an Irish Gaelic, and I don't know which one this is supposed to represent. With that in mind, I think the best solution would be to split the Irish flag and the Scottish flag. This leaves only Hindi and Punjabi, which is going to be very hard in my opinion. I don't think it would be appropriate to use India's flag for either, and only one state in India has it's own flag, so our options are rather limited for those.

No. You need a Plextor and DIC for CD dumps.

You can use DIC to dump DVDs with any normal DVD drive, so I suggest dumping those while you wait for a new Plextor.

Please log. Does this occur in all your DL discs or only this disc? I tried my DL disc but dic could recognize the second layer.

The logs for the game in question are included in this link (plus some other games)

https://mega.nz/#!q0AHkZbb!V5rOwzZSe4pH … rz-ic_I-ec

I've dumped Xenosaga 1 with DIC before, and it dumped just fine. So I don't know what the issue is.

I've noticed a problem with DIC.

I recently got a copy of Madden 2005 Collector's Edition http://redump.org/disc/20599/

This is a dual-layer disc.

However, DIC doesn't recognize this, and only dumps one layer.

This isn't a problem with the disc, as Isobuster can extract an .iso that matches the database.

I've tried it with my TSST TS-H353B and my ASUS BW-12B1ST a, with identical results.
