The gaming industry fags hate that you have backlogs upon backlogs of games and are making efforts to fade it out entirely in top tier kikery.

>How does this affect me/you/others

First pic shows that gamestop is fully on board and are trying to encourage ignorant people to get rid of physical copies of their old games.


Because They can't resell those same games to you through an online subscription program or digitally when you already have physical copies and the means to play them

>But nintendo is still selling physical copies

Yes, however they are also using "rewarding" consumers who purchase online with a rip-off of an incentive called "nintendo coins" for every purchase made. There is still way too much of a chance of an outrage and backlash from outright removing all and future copies of games to come. So they along with other companies are moving forward to slowly fade out the existence of physical copies. And with digital copies, gamers will often have to keep deleting older games to purchase and play any of the newer games. See beginning of how the sinister cycle is intended to work? Out with the old, go shell out for day 1 dlc and more with the new titles.

And now you also see why nintendo is now "suddenly" deciding now of all times to start going on a purge of sites with all kinds of roms and emulators

Nothing about this is new. Maybe instead of wording your post to provoke a fearful and angry response, you could point to where to find retro games and how to help archive them.

162111  No.15374439

This is nothing new. Look at all the faggots even on here who proudly scream "PC Master Race!" even though that was the first platform to start digital only material, and even managed to completely remove physical copies. At least some of these people are pirating and not dumb enough to pay money for digital license rentals, but look at how many here talk about how they use Steam.

Remember, never pay any money for any game that isn't complete and on disc. This goes for games with DLC as well. If they aren't willing to sell the game complete, then you shouldn't be willing to buy it. And "free" DLC is nearly as bad, since you still don't own it, and it can be removed from the servers and disappeared whenever they like.

It will only get worse faster if you don't demand full games that you can actually own, and call out people dumb enough to pay for digital license rentals.

The thing is, I will pay for physical copies of a good game, so long as the price is somewhat reasonable, because I want to vote with my wallet. But I still need to actually get to own something in that transaction, or I won't do it. I'm not going to pay for something I don't get to own forever.

PS: this goes double for games with online content, especially online focus, or god forbid, online only. They'll straight up cease to exist if nobody but you is playing, or if they just decide to stop running the servers. So make this known and stop supporting games like this.

Shame too, scalpers wouldn't have such a tight grip on older games if they didn't needlessly destroy physical copies of games. I don't understand the logic of destroying a perfectly good product which loses them money in the long run. If its to drive up prices of these older then the logic is still retarded as a scalper will give a slightly better price and you don't have to pay taxes. Just look at the Xenoblade fiasco, even though new copies were made and priced as though they were older copies they hardly sold at all.

I don't think the future is purely going to be stream everything from the cloud unless there's a legal precedent that sets it. Until that precedent is set then I will keep archives of all software I own for preservation and curation. If the law says I must destroy all software for unsupported hardware and operating systems for my software then we will be in a truly dark age. Because this means I have to destroy my Nintendo cartridges by law. I'm just one Burger with one voice, one body, and one vote. I'll do what I can to keep this decision from happening. If I can't then there will be a civil war.

This post is fucking retarded. The only news sites calling Nintendo on their bullshit are PC oriented, because on PC, software is forever. Physical will degrade and break, digital will be archived and available forever. It's why PC players see nothing wrong with emulation, 20 year old software has little value and is meant to be archived and shared. CONSOLES are the ones who want to resell the same game over and over. PC archives and distributes.

So why aren't you taking advantage of gamestop?

Do you know how cheap countless copies of madden, cheapo DS games, and tons of other shit is you can just get tons of store credit back with and get brand new games for the cost of $4-8 to yourself?

When did you all become such whiny, bitchy women that you can't take advantage of a simple opportunity and instead let yourselves get fucked over like it's nothing? Either way I'm gonna be getting a copy of Yakuza Kiwami 2, Monster Boy, a Nintendo Switch, Gal Metal, and whatever the fuck I want and it's gonna cost me less than dinner at a sit-in restaurant.

I never talked shit about piracy. I said it was more logical than anything other than getting a physical copy. Emulation is great. But I still want my physical copies.

You let them fuck you in the ass and then you're proud of it.

You're not wrong but I don't think there's much of a conspiracy at work.

Gamestop has always tried to jew people out of their used games and consoles.

Selling digital copies rather than physical has always been a net-profit for companies because it 1. cuts down production cost and 2. removes the possibility of reselling games second hand.

Nintendo are known to be mega jews that constantly swing around their big dick C&D's with threats of killing your mum if you don't comply.

It's just a perfect storm of bad practices meant slightly boost the bottom line while giving no shits and hurting the consumer.

Why do you think Steam controls your library? Steam Works is effortless to break, all steam games are easily available for download from various sites. Digital has made archiving even easier because you don't have to ROM dump and deal with any physical DRM.

The danger is online only games and games with invasive bullshit drm like denuvo. Other then that, steam has made archiving games easier then ever.

>gamestop is fully on board and are trying to encourage ignorant people to get rid of physical copies of their old games

>because [online retailers] can't resell those same games to you through an online subscription program or digitally when you already have physical copies and the means to play them

So, let me get this straight: GameStop is trying to take in a lot of physical product because they want to help online retailers sell more digital copies? I don't think you thought this retardation through, because everyone knows that GameStop relies on used product in order to make a profit. They'd be eating into their own bottom line if they decided to start hoarding a fuckton of product that they couldn't turn around and sell. If Nintendo is involved at all, there is likely some kind of collaborative promotional campaign going on that somehow benefits both parties (and usually at the consumer's expense, but that doesn't bear mentioning).

>Nintendo is "rewarding" consumers who purchase online with a rip-off incentive called "Nintendo coins" for every purchase made.

I think you conveniently forgot to mention that consumers can also acquire these reward points by purchasing physical copies, as well using Nintendo's smartphone apps, and possibly other things.

>There is still way too much of a chance of an outrage and backlash from outright removing all future [physical] copies of games to come, so they along with other companies are moving forward to slowly fade out the existence of physical copies.

They don't give a shit. If they wanted to remove physical copies, provided that doing so wouldn't somehow inconvenience their business operations, then they would. The truth is that, while online distribution is the future, we're still not quite at the point where it's common and convenient enough for the average user that it can absolutely replace physical sales. If they got rid of physical copies now, a large pool of revenue would just up and vanish, because a lot of people still rely on their ability to acquire physical copies in order to be able to play. When everyone around the world has easy and affordable access to reliable and fast internet infrastructure, then digital will be poised to phase out physical distribution. Even then, physical distribution may still exist, albeit in some limited capacity, given there is enough incentive for said corporations to cater to those who would prefer it.

>And with digital copies, gamers will often have to keep deleting older games to purchase and play any of the newer games. See beginning of how the sinister cycle is intended to work? Out with the old, go shell out for day 1 dlc and more with the new titles.

Alternatively, you could try getting a larger hard drive. HDDs are pretty affordable these days, and you can buy enough space to house entire libraries of games and across all the previous console generations. It's retarded to think that limited hard drive capacity is even a concern anymore.

All this paranoia, let me spell it out for you.

Gamestop wants people to trade in old games for $10 so they can sell them to collectors for $100 this is nothing more than a company making money from idiots.

Nintendo is trying to cash in on nostalgia and at the same time by reselling old games they can legally claim ROM sites are costing them money and sue them, as we all know Nintendo loves to sue.

They also want people to move away from physical copies because physical copies:

1) Cost money to produce

2) Are sold through retailers that take a cut

If you have a basic understand of business you can see why they are doing these things.

I'm not saying you should destroy the original physical software or hardware.

In fact, I'd prefer to use them whenever possible.

Unless someone figures out how to 3D print PS2s and game discs, a digital solution is your best bet at preservation.

>I don't understand the logic of destroying a perfectly good product which loses them money in the long run. If its to drive up prices of these older then the logic is still retarded as a scalper will give a slightly better price and you don't have to pay taxes.

Far as I've heard it's simply avoidance on paying taxes. Destroyed merchandise being able to be written off compared to still being unsold and usable, or something.


They do once they officially can't stock them anymore, though usually they'll try some sales before that to get some profit on them. But usually prior to that they'll start trashing cases and manuals because those are "extraneous" and "unnecessary", and they want to save shelf space. Sadly, there's plenty of people into vidya that don't care about anything but the cart/game, and have binders full of disc only copies (Nintendo also not helping matters with those "travel" cases for DS and 3DS games; more incentive for people to trash the rest). That said, with Gamestop having picked older systems back up, if only for warehouse stocking (not like they'll sell those in the brick and mortar stores), I'm not sure what they'll be doing at this point for seventh Gen. Obviously they want to clear the stores out of them (last time I went in one, the Wii section was a very small spinning stand and sharing space with the WiiU, and PS3 was relegated to a stand alone shelf and part of a bargain bin), but if they want to be able to say they stock all the way back through third gen, it would be weird for them to just drop them entirely instead of sending stuff, at least what has demand, to a warehouse. Then again, Gamestop's not especially smart.





I don't even see Orta going for much more than $15 where I live. Still, $5 each isn't bad and all, especially with how Paper Mario and God Hand have shot up.

You need to work on your reading comprehension.

A DRM-free offline binary installer that can be stored/copied from a personal hard drive, such as those provided by GOG or Humble Bundle, are far better than an equivalent physical installer such as a disc/cartridge. Digital installers are easier to save, transport, and share with others, and they don't have a shelf life like discs do, so long as you back up your HD.

Now, what is troublesome is maintaining compatibility between old installers and modern platforms/OS's. GOG installers have great compatibility on Windows 7, and I assume there's support for Linux, but what about in the future? 20 years from now when I want to install one of my old pirated GOG games, will that thing be compatible at all? If it's too old to play natively, will future PC hardware even be capable of running a Win7 partition, or will it be necessary to play via a VM?

This is why it's so beneficial when old games have their source code made public, because it's far easier to maintain compatibility through open source projects. You can't really do that with discs.

This is true. All hardware is in a state of decay. Including your own hard discs and the discs of servers used to store ROMs online. I'm saying enjoy hardware while you still have it. Study it. Once it's gone. It's gone.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket either. A cold hard drive or solid state drive if preserved in an air-conditioned environment will last longer than one in use obviously. But environmental factors like fires, bombs, SWAT teams can and will ruin these drives in an instant. To me digital preservation is about how and when you can copy software without corrupting the source more than the medium it's stored on.

Also a note about software as a service. For the longest time I wanted to get into animation and was recomended Adobe Flash. When I looked into buying Adobe after liking the jolley roger version we had Adobe went to a subscription only model. So I swore off learning Adobe's software and chose to go open source because of their pants-on-head retarded decision.

They want their customers on the subscription model where all their digital assets are under their control and can't be resold or transferred to newer generations of hardware. That's what the xbone was intended to introduce to the market, their shill Ben Kuchera famously defended it on Penny Arcade's editorial site which caused it to shutdown due to backlash.

You really believe that? Here is Rooland the standard retailer cut is ~40-50% and maybe ~20% of people buy second hand.

I don't doubt that they want subscriptions and if they can legally take away your library when your subscription expires they will. I just don't believe that the death a physical is due to this, I think the death of physical is because so long as you legally own software you buy digital is better for both company and customer.

Honestly at this point anything that can be made into a digital copy and distributed digitally is just a game of pretending. Companies pretend they are selling you something and you pretend you own it.

There will be a change in mentality regarding digital medium in the future (if it's not happening now) because the digital realm is completely incompatible with the old practices in which people sold and bought stuff that couldn't be instantaneously replicated and shared. If it's me that you ask, I bet the future will be something similar to patron-funded projects and crowdfunding.

I mostly use my Wii U and Vita for emulation. The handheld convenience is nice, and the Wii U can even do good DS emulation with a proper touchscreen and several ways to configure it depending on if or how you want to use the TV or not. The only consoles you can't emulate well on those don't emulate well on Windows either.


>Alternatively, you could try getting a larger hard drive. HDDs are pretty affordable these days, and you can buy enough space to house entire libraries of games and across all the previous console generations. It's retarded to think that limited hard drive capacity is even a concern anymore.

>just buy more hardware, goy

You can keep every old game on a relatively small drive, but new games are becoming ridiculously huge ridiculously fast. Yes, new games also happen to be shit. But that's beside the point.

Cucks on here are acting as if people saying not to pay for non-physical copies are saying that digital backups shouldn't exist. An absurd strawman argument. Nobody is saying that. There is no reason you can't have a physical edition and a digital backup, but modern companies, and cucks like you, are trying to take away our physical copies, which only fucks over the consumer in many ways already listed in this thread.


>they don't have a shelf life like discs do, so long as you back up your HD.

>they don't have a shelf life like discs do

>immediately describes how the drive does indeed have a shelf life and you need to back it up

Always back up everything. But doing away with original physical copies isn't helping at all. What percentage of consumer hard drives from 1985 are still working today? What percentage of Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt cartridges are still working today? I'm willing to bet the NES carts are more reliable. And yes obviously modern drives are more reliable, but it's very disingenuous to imply that physical games simply stop working over time, unless you're talking about a very long time frame and bad conditions. For as much talk as you people give about disc rot, all my PS1 and Sega Saturn games still work. Hardware is another matter, depending on the hardware, but again, that's what backups are for.

You'll say it's absurd to say this, but physical libraries are important. How many digital only games or DLC simply do not exist anymore? For as much talk as there is about tablets, I still can't bring myself to say that we should eliminate physical libraries.


>I think the death of physical is because so long as you legally own software you buy digital is better for both company and customer.

You don't legally own software you think you buy. Steam, PSN, XBL, and whatever half assed "service" Nintendo is trying to make you re-buy the same games on again, all make clear that you are renting a license for access to the game. People can and have had these licenses revoked.

It's also not better for the consumer for you to not be able to share or sell your own property. The fact that you can't really goes to show that it's not your property at all. You don't own it.


SJWs and other scam artists have already taken over crowdfunding as well. I can see your thought process, but these people have already worked their way into positions of authority and made sure that only their friends can make use of them.

You're retarded. DRM-free digital software is identical to simply having a disk except instead of storing it on that disk you're storing it on your HDD or SSD. If you want to be really autistic you can just burn it to the disk.

762035  No.15376129


Really reliable storage system must include redundancy. CDs/DVDs have expiration date, so for forever and reliable storage you need at least two copies and rotation of disks, with copying and destroying of old disks approaching failure age. Its big hassle with large databases. Also big hassle when access is needed, also possible point of disk failure.

With HDD storage these processes can be automated with RAID storages (replacing old disks is still manual)

Though actually if you can get a good deal on a second hand tape library it's not that crazy. I just checked bong ebay and they have a not unreasonable one for £50 (you could probably jew the seller down to £40 or less too). It's a level of autism I've not yet advanced too but I've been considering it for just how damn cheap and small tape is.


For 3 1/2 sure, not so much for 5 1/4 (i.e. actually floppy floppies). Then you have to account for the fact USB might itself fall out of fashion as looks possible.

It varies wildly on who made them and the conditions they're stored in.

If you're in a climate with low moisture and you're storing official discs, you should be fine for a while unless you're in a damp climate because the moisture can fuck them up.

But, what you should be worried about is if you're storing any burnt discs, that's the most susceptible to disc rot. Although CDs/DVDs were made to be a universal standard, the manufacturing process between each company wasn't.

So while you could use the discs on and CD/DVD player, there's no way you could tell that the company made a shit disc until it's too late.

And hard drives are the same too. And they're even worse because with hdds they could fail mechanically over time.

That's why whenever there's an archiving threads you'd always hear anons recommend tape drives. They're specificly designed for archival.

Another reason they want to remove physical copies is so people can't lend their games to their friends. Or trade games they've already beaten for ones they haven't played yet.

You can't do that with Steam loicenses, once you buy that shit you can't lend it or trade it with anyone. Also they don't have to physically manufacture games and pay for CDs, cases, ship them, etc. Yet still charge the same amount for digital copies.

We still have to keep in mind that the open free internet won't be around forever. Some say open free internet died in 2007. We have to be prepared to find alternative channels of distribution too.

Excuse the soap box but video games are important to preserve because they teach object oriented computer programming design, logic, and simulation, regardless if the rules make sense in real life or not. Video Games made the 70's-90's generations smarter before Hollyjew corrupted it. There are some newer smaller titles that are trying to adhere to the logic and design rather than microtransaction money making schemes, but those are very few and far in between.

We can't let the Jews win by erasing a cornerstone of human history because it was made by "racis Nazi white nerds lol". This is a fucking lie half of the good games were made by Japanese NEETs from the 80s and 90s who got together and made partners in crime.

>since the DS era

except no, it's been for a lot longer. In fact I advise against emulation and snapping up consoles that can be modified to either run off a external (or intenral) HDD or get a flashcart.

The expenses in the long run might not seem worth it but consider how much it costs for say Conker's bad fur day unboxed in ok condition and you're already at half of the cost of a everdrive. Emulation is far from perfect, even titles like Jak and Daxter run like ass on PCSX2 and have issues depending on the various renderers. The hardcore emu fags here have deluded themselves into thinking emulation is the defacto thing because PC is all you need, but with flash carts and modded consoles you remove the emulation issues as it's all issues stemming from the emulation of the system's hardware, not the game.

Granted some emulators, like dolphin are much more "complete", in this case emulation would be a good alternative, supplementing what you can emulating WELL with consoles with either modded hardware or a flash cart to bring up on what you either can't run or what doesn't run well.

This of course runs counter to collector fags and if they wanna build an actual library more power to em. However from a "I want to play video games" standpoint if you're content at playing buggy incomplete emulators, then you may as well pre-order fallout 76

If the collector doesn't pull the data and get the emulation online (which most don't), then your theory and OPs can exist together.

Hell, most collectors don't pass on their shit since they have no loved ones. So it gets tossed in the garbage.


Its why emulation websites are so good. If one doesn't have it, another will. Then the other sites copy that emulator and put it on their server.

It's like any image on the internet- as long as someone saves it and shares it so others can save it, it will last forever.


If only we had a message board to discuss video games. Then as we shared shit we liked, it'd trickle down into mainstream from the few who lurk on that website and other places.

If you find something good, talk about it.

This. Also don't forget games that simply can't be emulated well due to other factors like unique hardware, like Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Butokai, and the PS2 era Dynasty/Samurai Warriors games.

If you're not playing on a slim ps2, get a network adapter. Seriously, they're like 20 bucks at most and it lets you have a hdd so you can play games of it if you have freemcboot installed.

36afef  No.15378196


PSCX2 just does not handle it for some reason, despite the ISOs being the exact same that I had burned. And playing it off a HDD or network via OPL does not allow you to swap disks, since you have to physically open the PS2, insert the original Warriors game, reopen the PS2, and reinsert the Xtreme Legends expansion. There haven't been any hacks or modified ISOs to play the game with all the content without performing the disc swap.

I'm already on board with the whole "mutiny against TPTB" as an /o/ anon. A day comes when they tell me I can't drive my car anymore, that I have to take the engine out and turn it into a metallic sculpture, then that's it. I lock myself in my car, loop Red Barchetta on at full volume and cause havoc for all the peons in their auto-driving soapboxes. Until I run out of gas, I'm brought to a stop, I'm killed or I decide to take my own life, I will make it my aim to have the most historically significant car chase in history. And it won't only be me. There'll probably be hundreds or even thousands of us filling the skies with the sounds of loud revving V8s. Their Teslas and Prii driven by their onboard Asimo chauffeurs will be totally overwhelmed. Moralfags bitching about us "killing the planet" will be ran over in the process.

I recommend you do the same when they come for your games. It's unlikely, but they just might. And if they do you gotta be ready to fight. You gotta be ready to kill. They are infringing upon your rights, and in order to dignify oneself as a human being, and not a co-operative slave, it is your job to respond to that infringement with an appropriate fucking answer.


To a good chunk of /v/posters, those ARE their childhood consoles though. Someone who was 12 in 2001 is now almost 30. Someone who was 12 in 1994, upon the launches of the PS1/Saturn and the announcement of the N64 will be 40 in less than a handful of years.


Narcissistic abuse, anon. Nothing any of us could do about it. There are hundreds of horror stories out there, thousands untold. If you're white, educate your children to not be domineering little shits when they too have children of their own. If you're not, educate the children of your peers to do the same. Let the next generation grow, respect their decisions and only intervene when they refuse to step in line.

See, this is the problem: you faggots trying to play the speculative market on console sales. This isn't comic books (and comic books ain't comic books anymore); stop buying this shit for value.

Back when pirated GBA carts were being made and some of the earliest flash carts were released they were everywhere. Most rom sites don't have them as they are intended to be used with emulators and don't need the intro to bypass piracy protection. Later flash carts applied anti piracy patches to games automatically as well.

If you weren't dealing with pirated games or flashcarts back from 2001-2004 you'd never see them.

>what do we have in hardware replication?

Not a whole lot, some consoles have quite a few options in replaceable hardware, workarounds to things like the Suicide battery and there's clones for certain chips, the C64 SID chp, for example. When it comes to things like proprietary chips, your more or less shit out of luck, tech in that area hasn't really advanced beyond the NES on a chip or those god awful retrons.

>hashing standards

I would definitely advocate for a modern hash standard for future work, as byuu does SHA256, but updating the hashes for existing games necessitates re-dumping or trusting of the older hashes. Also since there's multiple hashes it'll be challenging to generate a fraudulent match to all of them (well the ones that use SHA1 and MD5, which some aren't).


That's probably talking about things like iNES headers, which are not actually part of the ROM, and are only some half-assed way to tell an emulator the cartridge layout. byuu's NES dumping has a much more thorough markup for telling bnes how to set up the emulator, and something similar for SNES games.

>naming conventions

The Official No-Intro Convention ostensibly documents that though I only have a PDF from 2007 and can't find it anywhere at the moment.


So what is MAME doing? Because their older naming convention is batshit with stuff like 8:3 filenames to the ZIP files, and no stability for how to name the files inside.

>signed ROM hashes

The same problem as Retroshare in that it can determine who dumped what game, and that could potentially cause legal problems for them (smoking gun).

>citing CPU vulnerabilities with relation to hash breaking

That is not at all connected. Also I think you're grossly overstating the threat of fraudulent dumps. Much more of a problem is half-assed dumping standards. In the case of No-Intro thankfully they seem to have moved on from obsolete Vita standards at least for PSN.

>ROM-manager's should decide it on my behalf!

Then don't use that program! However, the No-Intro naming standard is a decent way to name ROMs, the only thing I don't agree with is the ID number prefix for libraries like the GBA. I have my own shell script framework to handle importing of random ROMs. If they match No-Intro they get the No-Intro filename, and if not, they get the ROM's hash as the filename.

>that's not their definition!

You said you didn't know what it was. More to the point, the site's name No-Intro stems from their attempt to provide clean sources. Not games tainted with "intros" inserted by the game's dumper, as I've seen a few Amiga games do.


I don't even know what the hell you're on about now. If you're using a tool to mange ROMs according to No-Intro standards, then the filename is of course going to be changed to reflect that. Even bsnes's ROM importing stuff generates a cartridge folder with its own naming convention. You're free to rename them afterwards but if you run it through the same tool again, of course not.

ddcea4  No.15380728


What specifically? The SNES stuff was more thorough at determining the cartridge layout, and the NES stuff is about the only new thing to try displacing the highly deficient iNES. If you're talking about his politics, then yeah, he's lefty as fuck. I'm not letting that overshadow the legitimately good things he's done.


Enough /pol/ soapboxing to clutter the real discussion. It's really tedious.


>I did not!

You are though. Like, how often has this ever come up? Shit dump standards are an actual problem.

>Incorrect, I just read their definition!

Point to their definition of "intro". Because in my experience almost all of byuu's ROM data hashes match No-Intro once you take iNES and worthless SNES copier headers out of the equation, so they aren't tampered with. Again. The No-Intro part of their name stems from dumper "intros" (think demoscene type bullshit that you have to sit through to enjoy the real game which is about tampering with the game) which they didn't want any of that sort of crap in their DB.

>Just plain file renaming

I rename my GBA ROMs to strip off the number. They stay that way once imported through my framework. However I prefer starting from a sane naming standard than GoodROMs or whatever else it started out as.

Dumping older cartridge games correctly is actually perilous because the cartridge's memory mapper is in between and doesn't provide 1:1 access to the ROM's contents. Notably, some regions of memory can be mirrored, and then you also have special regions used for coprocessor access. This is one of the major things byuu's copying attempted to figure out and document per-game with a proper markup for describing the cartridge layout. CD-based media offers its own problems, a good example of that is the deliberately malformed error correction stuff on certain PS1 games.

Ironically, despite the loathing, digital games can sometimes be archived easily. All you need for PSVita is the .pkg files for the game (and patch(es) and DLC(s) if applicable) and they're straightforward to hash and download. To actually use them requires a NoNpDrm fake license, again, simple. GOG game installers are similarly easy.

PAL in hueland has always been PAL60 though, so it was better to just use NTSC mode - a no-brainer as since the late 1980s most TVs there had a PAL/NTSC switch. Only if you had a really shitty old TV you'd have to use a color transcoder device to play in color when using NTSC mode.

>NoIntro sets are just ROMs with just any potential intros removed, but otherwise apparently have no quality control?

In the beginning yes, they were just roms with intros removed but no quality control at all. As the project matured they gradually added quality control and as intros became a thing of the past, the project shifted focus to preservation. However their qc methodology, standards and naming conventions are still not as reliable / accurate as GoodSets.

The problem with GoodSets is that afaik the project is dead / abandoned. Most Goodtools haven't been updated in over 8 years and no new ones have come out. I'd love to see GoodSets for 5th gen and 6th gen ISOs, but since these don't exist, No-Intro is the best we've got and definitely much better than downloading broken ISOs from places such as Emuparadise (which had absolutely no quality control at all and I still think archiving anything from there is actually a disservice).

You will need to triple boot or more since you'll need one as primary PC, the two others for practice, and as many others for branch work. A virtual machine is highly recommended for source based distros: you don't want to compile something that breaks the distro out of control.

Ostensibly, but it's way out-of-date. Also for whatever reason they add lots of trash ROMs, which is why they have naming for bad, overdumped, cracked, and the like, and why games come in a whole lot of different ROMs. It's pointless.



No. Fuck no. Goodsets is obsolete and much poorer standard than No-Intro. Which isn't to say No-Intro can't improve but there's no need for regression. No-Intro also make some effort to move forward.

I've already pointed out that Goodsets archive garbage ROMs. No-Intro has a few bad dumps mentioned in their browsable DB such as for Pokémon Black and White but those don't get included in their dats. They also have indication of games that have been dumped multiple times vs. once (unverified). As for quality control, all the shitty Mai and Vitamin dumps for Vita games are flagged bad and effectively removed. There isn't yet a stable cartridge archive format but they hash .pkg files from PSN now. Like NoPayStation without the pirating allowed. The main thing they need to work on is a modern hashing format. Signed hashes are probably going a bit too far, on top of being more difficult to deal with, but it does at least need to move to a more secure one than SHA1 or MD5.

Krikzz didn't make the saturn/dreamcast shit, and they aren't an especially good option anyways. Unlike an everdrive, they cost 130 euros, didn't actually need an everdrive to begin with, as the library of games is small. and CD-Rs are still a much cheaper option, AND they only work on specific models of the machines so if you don't have, say, a launch dreamcast or a saturn with a very specific CD drive, you're fucked.

Piracy is NOT a good solution for archiving games. The entire NES library is what? Two gigabytes? One PSP game is 1-1.5 gigabyte. I'm seeding all the PSP JRPGs out of principal but a one terabyte seedbox is €25 per month.

A modern game can go over 100Gb. And finding seeds for the obscure games is not easy. Sure GTA4 will always be out there. But ni no kuni 2?

A 5TB portable hard drive can be had for <$150. 5 years ago you would've been lucky to get 1TB for that price. The size of modern games will not become a problem until they surpass the 500GB mark, and even then we'll probably have 10TB drives by that point. And as >>15385410 said, what need would there be to archive games from the CURRENT YEAR anyway? If they're still being sold then there's no point.

>Do you recall the reason why?

Who cares? What's the point of a typical goodset having a whole bunch of cracked or shittily dumped variants included with the [!] game? The edge cases that people actually care about can be done elsewhere.

>Selective, or by standard?

When downloading a dat file it has a bunch of filtering options, but yeah, by default, it's only good ROMs. No-Intro, unlike byuu, also include some unofficial stuff.

>Exclusive to GoodSets

No-Intro does it. I don't know if goodsets does but I strongly doubt it.

>What's the raw standard regarding No-Intro's choice to remove those two

Never mind it wasn't fully removed, it was only like the first couple of entries that happened to be red. Nevertheless there is now a section for PSN encrypted/decrypted .pkg files which is state-of-the-art. For cartridge games there isn't yet a dumping standard because internally they're a folder tree much like a digital game on Vita, and those are troublesome to hash.

>GoodSets never did Vita work, so this argument is moot.

An example was asked for and I gave it. At least partly.

>Never heard of torrent poisoning?

Yes and it's rarely a problem in practice…

>But those aren't post quantum.

…which is why I believe you are vastly overstating the threat posed by the less secure hashes with ROMs. On top of that, signed hashes introduce their own complications, mostly trust in whoever holds the private key(s) and how to distribute the public ones. Compared to just running md5sum(1) or equivalent. The other biiiig problem is redumping everything. Just trusting the existing files isn't enough if you're assuming people actually compromised them.

>words words words words words words words


>In the case of dumping, you have to have examples of what isn't a dump

It's done. By defining how to dump a game, and having multiple people reproduce the same output with the same game. If people are stuffing around with it or doing it wrong, or the cartridge is bad, it won't. Of course if the actual dumping technique is wrong or sub-standard it may be superceded later, but again, for a time, the only way to copy Vita games was Vitamin and Mai. Many similar examples exist of what was best at the time but no longer.

Also unless your DB actually catalogs ROMs with intros (fuck intros), ones that are dumped incorrectly (why on earth would you even bother documenting these, let alone distributing them in a ROM torrent, they are no value) it makes no sense to have a naming system for them. No-Intro is about good, or at a minimum, unverified (likely valid but not reproduced independently, and something to test against later).

>If it doesn't follow guidelines, it's "hobby dump"

No it's done wrong and isn't worth documenting.

>Your so called "pre-patched" ROMs, yep, hobby dumps.

If you're talking about ROM hacks or unofficial games those aren't necessarily in scope for a DB. Usually they're interested in official versions of a game for a platform, not every bootleg or weird third-party add-on (NES has loads of these for example). Modified games made to work on sub-standard emulators or game copiers generally aren't of interest either, the only major exception is that they sometimes have hashes against decrypted and encrypted for validation of that, because distributing the actual keys would quickly get them in hot water.

They had cracktros during the C64 era (and other 8-bit computers). They're actually quite useful because many of them include trainers and some games are almost impossible to play without them, due to bugs or just questionable design. Console games typically got a lot more testing, but many computer games were a rush job of getting a game ported and out into the shops.

An argument for trainers is not one against archival of the original. In particular, I have not found a clean copy of the Amiga game Crystal Hammer (Arkanoid clone), and the intro for that is like a full minute before I can play it. It's terrible. That, and Pac-Mania, and Hybris, are my childhood.

Also the bit-rot solution is spreading copies, and hashing.

8c3f5a  No.15394098

Not only should we archive the roms and emulators….all of this software in software form.

We should also make an effort to archive the specifics of the actual hardware.

Full on circuit diagrams, names of components involved, and data-sheets on those components.

Anything truly and completely proprietary and unable to find on the market should be marked as such and its functions documented as best as possible through reverse engineer diagnostics.

My end goal is to be able for a person to be able to piece together their own NES or SNES or SEGA or whatever, maybe it doesn't look as good as the originals, but it functions exactly the same if you plugged a cartridge into that homebrew machine.

Likewise, I would want a homebrew cart to work just as well plugged into a genuine machine.

c3e317  No.15394392


For the larger ROMs, you can compress space by putting all regions and versions of the same game in 1 archive. Most of the ROM would be the same so the combined archive file would be smaller than the individual files. (This varies between compression algorithms and the compression setting used, but I know it works with 7z.) Anyone who's serious about archiving and wants to save storage space (or make the whole collection more compressed and more accessible to others) should consider that.

I can't test this in practice myself due to shitty bandwidth. However, to test this in theory, I put the Gamecube list into an excel sheet. Using the data given, the total space of all the ROM archives is about 1.827 TB. (Assume rounding errors due to only 2 displayed decimal places shown on the website.) By splitting the filenames and removing duplicate ROMs of the same versions this drops to 0.986 TB, or almost half of the original archive size.

Keep in mind that number is just an estimate. One issue is not knowing exactly how much of the ROM has changed between versions, but most of the content should be the same minus translations and possibly bugfixes. Another issue would be because I didn't feel like over-complicating this and check if the duplicate ROM is part of a 2-disc game, but again, a lot of the content would be the same. The final error would be games with alternate names in foreign languages. I figured matching the names and their translations just for an estimate would be too much work, but a lot of them seemed to have English names still.

If someone has the bandwidth and disk storage to spare I'd love to see the numbers in practice. Here's the document if anyone cares. https://files.catbox.moe/3k8mty.zip

Amiga disk drives were very flexible in what they could do compared to other computers like PCs and Atari ST, so that made the copy protection pretty fucking solid if any work was put into it. And they HAD to be cracked in most cases (very few games on Amiga didn't have copy protection, and relatively few let you install them to HD), and when the crackers did all that hard work, they put their intros in there. You don't like that? Go use an IPS dump instead. If there isn't one yet, go make an IPS dump of that game if it bothers you so much. I don't care tbh, so long as the game runs.

Typo, I mean IPF, which can be loaded fine in UAE presumably, though I never tried this.

Also the one exception to Atari ST was Dungeon Master. FTL bought their own commercial disk duplicator and customized it so they could write "fuzzy logic" bits onto each disk they shipped, in such a way that the ST drives couldn't properly read it each time and it came out random. Then their copy protection checks (at many spots in the game, some very far into it) tried to read that special disk sector several times in a row, and if it was always identical then the program knew it was a pirate copy (because the ST drives could only write "normal" bits that read in identical the same every time) and then some time later made the game to start misbehaving in subtle ways. Those guys were pretty devious!

They're essentially playing google's game except it's baked right into the OS.

Which makes it even more sinister when you think about it because now they're gathering information on a whole new level. Not just what sites you visit but anything and everything you do on your system in general.

You could disable a bunch of this stuff from what I know, but honestly that's the game they're playing and there's always some stuff popping up about how shit gets turned back on during updates and other shit.

Not everyone likes a dumb faggot like you too, so fucking what?

Remove yourself from the gene pool before you spread any of those cancerous filthy shit taste in technology.

At the very least go back to your own habitat:






Here's an anecdote explaining why Win10 is an OS that you should never use regularly.

While at work, I once borrowed a laptop with Win10 pre-installed when my own PC broke, for a few weeks. That laptop was literally my only choice, so don't bother asking why. Tried to disable updates through the hosts file, and so far the OS looks like it hasn't successfully updated itself, even to this day. But it kept restarting the laptop at certain times of the day automatically, as if it tried to install some updates. Finally, on one day the OS disabled Microsoft IME and foreign language typing support by itself, two of the most important features of Win10 that I repeatedly use since the first day I borrowed the laptop. Yes, those features were usable before that certain day. Whenever I try to reactivate them the OS acts as if there's a certain update that needs to be downloaded and installed so that those features can be usable again. System restore doesn't work at all.

It seems like Win10 was trying to punish me for not letting it do whatever it wants.

Fuck Microsoft.
