Topic: Suggesting different approach for anti-modchip / libcrypt games
Removing Anti-modchip protection status from Europe region and removing LibCrypt status from USA: Could this be done plz (also in New disc menu)?.. they are useless for these specific regions anyway, and it will make the database better organized. There are just too many libcrypt unknown entries for no reason.
And I also believe it's safe to just put all games with unknown libcrypt and anti-modchip protection to 'No', and get rid of the 'Unknown' flag completely because it's just a useless flag and it won't be changed anyway unless somebody redumps (they are expected to check anyway!, at least for libcrypt) so if a redump shows that the current entry is wrong we can always change it again!!.
And even though I noticed that all Europe dumps have been set to No anti-modchip, I still think it would be better to just remove this status for this region.
It has always annoyed me how new dumps always get added with anti-modchip 'unknown' for all regions if the list of anti-modchip games is well-documented (and we are not asking dumpers to check for anti-modchip so only the widely known games are set to 'Yes' anyway!!.. the rest (almost 500 dumps and only growing) will always remain in the db as 'unknown' as nobody checks them anyway.. and for what? the anti-modchip data is not subchannel like libcrypt so there's really no point in forcing someone to check every single game to see if it has anti-modchip protection)..
as for for libcrypt, there are >350 'not checked' dumps and they aren't on any list of known libcrypt games.. it would be better to just set them to 'No' until proven otherwise like in court where you're not guily until proven otherwise ..
please support this thread if you agree with me!
