On the other hand, when looking in a particular region, the numbering and sorting doesn't really make much sense.

There are still some skipped numbers, which are undumped discs, if that's what you mean.

In the end it all comes down to the filenames. Even if there is some logic behind the issue numbers of different countries' magazines, the question is if this logic can translate (at all) to the filenames and if it doesn't create a huge confusing mess.

Here are all the filenames after applying the disc title based / PCSX2 wiki naming scheme:

There are even regional variants with the same serial: http://redump.org/disc/11941/ & http://redump.org/disc/45372/ so there's a definite logic behind this naming and this logic would go away when using the magazine titles / issues.

Except for the Italian ones, which are unaltered and seem to have inconsistent naming: http://redump.org/discs/quicksearch/ufficiale/

Simply, how about rewriting PMin/Sec/Frame/LBA of "[Entry xx]", like audio-trap-disc?

Dunno, teach me plz smile

Some discs were renamed by Lizard to have the issue number in the name instead of the disc number, because you told him so in the Fixes forum. So if there is someone creating a clusterfuck it's you. We have to stay consistent and either go with the disc numbers always, or come with another solution. Using the magazine titles and issue numbers doesn't appear to be a good solution, especially because different magazine issues from different countries can have the same disc. The solution that you provided for those cases of just picking one of the countries / issue numbers to go in the filename (and thereby ignoring the other ones) is unacceptable imo.

In addition to Jackal modifying / favoring disc label numbering (which is unintuitive), he also is renaming entries with the UK titles, for example this entry is named: "Official PlayStation 2 Magazine Demo 73". Nowhere on this disc or packaging does "Official PlayStation 2 Magazine" appear, period!

The disc title is "ops2m demo 73/benelux". ops2m = Official PlayStation Magazine.

There are other sources using the same naming: https://wiki.pcsx2.net/Official_PlaySta … ne_Demo_73

Do you really think they just printed some random wrong demo number on the disc and you want to replace it with the magazine title and issue of 1 particular country and ignore all the others?

Post pictures, or this thread is useless. And it belongs in the fixes forum.

It's the Demo Disc 101, that came bundled with a particular magazine. If you start naming all demo discs according to the magazine that they were bundled with, it will become one huge confusing mess. There could be other countries where the 101 was released. The fact that the Crimson dude hasnt found it yet is meaningless.

ps. Can you fix this bad dump? http://redump.org/disc/60872/

Do you prefer to put both the Australian + French titles separated by a ~ ? Because that's the only alternative. And there could be several more countries with the same disc.

Do you have pictures of the sleeves where it says "Officieel PlayStation 2 Magazine"?

The 101 disc was clearly intended for a European release, hence the disc title. The fact that it was only released in the Netherlands / Benelux doesn't have to mean that we have to make up another name which is inconsistent and confusing.

Ok but my questions about the timestamp? Is there no way to predict the seed?

14

(25 replies, posted in General discussion)

@LedZeppelin68 are you still planning to investigate the second seed type?

This is what a DIC cuesheet should look like now:

REM SESSION 01
FILE "dump (Track 1).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
REM LEAD-OUT 01:30:00
REM SESSION 02
REM LEAD-IN 01:00:00
REM PREGAP 00:02:00
FILE "dump (Track 2).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 02 MODE2/2352
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 23:07:05
FILE "dump (Track 3).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 00:01:74
FILE "dump (Track 4).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 00:01:74

I think we are in agreement that the Redump site can store the complete cuesheet, but it should only include the REM SESSION lines in the download .cue (and exclude the REM LEAD-OUT, REM LEAD-IN, REM PREGAP because they are standard values that should be the same always)

REM SESSION 01
FILE "dump (Track 1).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
REM SESSION 02
FILE "dump (Track 2).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 02 MODE2/2352
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 23:07:05
FILE "dump (Track 3).bin" BINARY
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 00:00:00
    INDEX 01 00:01:74

  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 00:00:00

 (other ranges not checked)

Yeah, but when using cdarchive and reading backwards, ranges such like those actually become readable... I've ordered a SOHD-167T which hopefully reads more sectors (supposedly it was better at reading LaserLock than the OptiArc).

Do you have any idea how we can accomplish this?:

I guess we have to somehow modify the .ccd and include the additional data between the 2 sessions and in the lead-out area in the image (see attached .png).

About the timestamps: https://www.epochconverter.com/ldap

DiscImageCreator also decodes the filestamps from DMI and SS, see outputScsiCmdLogforDVD.cpp
and from XDVDFS: execScsiCmdforFileSystem.cpp

Example from http://redump.org/disc/6024/:

DMI:
2005/03/30 20:54:46

SS:
Timestamp of authoring: 2005/03/29 21:07:14
Timestamp of unknown: 2005/03/29 18:38:08

volDesc:
Image creation time: 2005/03/30 02:38:16


I guess it's strange that the image creation date is later than the other timestamps. But this would give a time range of ~8 hours that we could try for brute forcing (if this is even possible).

in two words:
isos compiled with SDK between versions 3926 - 4721 - easy to brutforce
isos compiled with SDK between versions 4831 - 5849 - will take forever

Bad news indeed sad

It seems to be using a "filetime" value for generating the seed value? So it it's possible somehow to pinpoint the approximate time when the disc was mastered and only try values within a limited time range, then maybe the bruteforce time could be reduced dramatically?
There seem to be timestamps in various places (also in the DMI and SS) that could be used for this: https://xboxdevwiki.net/Xbox_Game_Disc

I will test some ISO's and see for which ones the seed value can't be found, and then look for some timestamps.

And I really think we need to start storing the seed values and also SS ranges in an external file / database. The Redump filename or crc/md5/sha1 hash of the ISO could be the identifier to look up the values.

Of course it's possible that either the dump is corrupt or the ss.txt is bad. Plz paste the contents of the ss.txt.

Can you also use xboxregen on the 2002 FIFA World Cup "cleaned" ISO and confirm it restores to the original hashes?

I will do more tests tomorrow night.

Hi, I tested "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x (USA)". It finds a seed:

Seed found: 0xe4e92289
Time elapsed: 00:04:55.8389074

But when I use xboxregen, the pattern that is added does not match the original file:

I did put the correct ss.txt

Looking forward to a solution smile

Hi,

great job! 3 questions:

- Is there only 1 seed value for the entire disc? So it shouldn't take long to brute force every disc once they are supported?
- Does nNASOS also fill with "JUNK" pattern, or something else?
- I tried 2 random games (Crimson Skies - High Road to Revenge (USA) (En,Fr,De,Zh,Ko) + Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x (USA) ), but it couldn't find a seed value. So just this 1 game is supported for now?

Are there any coders who could have a look at this? http://xboxdevwiki.net/XDVDFS#Random_blocks

It would be great to have a tool developed similar to nNASOS for dramatically reducing the compressed size of Xbox images (by scrubbing the random padding and allowing it to be regenerated)
