    that repack is useless.
    as long the game works there's no reason to repack it... even if it's not the proper size...

    Played the PC version of this and it's pretty fun. Driving and shooting at the same time. Not a game I would get, though.

    A repack occurs when the original release was buggered up. Either the same group can release a repack, or another group can; the original release then gets nuked. In the GBA scene, an oversized dump is not grounds for a repack, hence the complaining.

    Then again, I think sometimes people complain just for the sake of complaining. [​IMG]

    wasn't an overdump is the situation, was an irregular 31mbits....so as always occurs in the sk33n, somebody rushed to *nuke* and repack (padding to 32mbit and removing the 'Dual Crew Shining' Intro)..happens all the time, has forever in the gba sk33n...lamer blamer just doesnt know his history....

    just for example:
    Starsky_and_Hutch_REPACKED_FIXED_USA_GBA-iND: Nuked (Reason: lame.release)


    and here another release with a 'wrong' romsize
    - Disneys_Magical_Quest_2_Multi3_EUR_GBA-RS (4194305 bytes, crc: 6DBF626C)
    - http://releases.pocketheaven.com/?system=g...elease&rel=1139 (4194305 bytes, crc: 6DBF626C)

    you see??? starsky and hutch wouldn't be the first rom with a wrong filesize in the releaselist...


    so please stop telling me that this happens all the time... [​IMG]

    which makes it underdumped actually, 1348 bytes...good intro, bad size, all i was saying
    isnt the same as the overdump you mentioned, underdumps get propers, easy as that...

    edit: and in no way, shape or form did i have anything at all to do with that release (cuz repacking is teh lame, we all know that *cough* rapid-fire *cough*).. so ifn your thinking, omg, coincidence...all i was saying sir, is do it right the first time, immitators cant correct your minor flaws...quote me on that..

    while dcs did a great job of coding and attaching the intro, they forgot one minor detail...right? (you know the answer is yes)

    well... in this case only some 00's / FF's are missing... but it's still a good dump... so does it really matter if those bytes are missing?

    and your right, repacking to re-add missing padding is like wtf...lame, unnecessary, evil, stupid, etc.. (but they still appear on scene sites regardless and on irc channels/fservs)
    but, some might think i might've had something to do with it from my comments, and before any blame comes down, i want to have my shit away from the fan so to speak..

    OMG. It'd be so mean just to nuke a game because the ROM groups thought it was lame. [​IMG]
