    Does that team actively refuse to 'fix' western games or is it that nobody has ever asked them to? Try it, you never know.

    they are just a bunch of idiot that using other people's work as theirs!
    they lurk at 2ch for FIXES! if they are capable.. we should have seen some EU/NA Fix from them
    none of the forum members there are capable of something
    the best they know is STEAL!

    therefore, don't bother to ASK them for any FIX!!!
    they are one of the main reason i no longer post codes as i used to...

    EDIT: infact, they do come here to grab our infolib.dat and etc!! so why go ask a bunch of useless people...

    we now, i think, its impossible to keep this kind of files, only for us...

    The first and important thing, is to continue to upgrade and work on it...

    if we can found an other solution, why not, to encrypt file, etc...

    But now, everybody just want to play with some games...

    The last one is "sonic classic collection"...

    Thank to all who want to participate [​IMG]

    The problem with 'encrypting the file' is... how do you DECRYPT the file?

    If I make the file, and put it into an archive with a password and upload it for people HERE to use...
    -- what is stopping someone from HERE from taking it?
    -- what is stopping someone from making an account to take it?

    This is the issue that Ashley had with DSTT.
    Someone from DSTT could just get the information, take the work and then give no credit.

    Does anyone know what format the infolib.dat, savlib.dat and extinfo.dat are ?
    So if i would like to add some, at least i need some info about the fileformat and so on..
    Is it avaiable somewhere ?

    it is not a software and it is not very easy to use it

    Maybe one day we will have a real software
    like R4CCE for infolib.dat or/and extinfo.dat

    savlib.dat = Software exist

    Software DOES exist for all of them..... as I have linked in my above comment.
    But if you cannot use the software, it's doubtful that you'll be able to update the files anyway.

    il like this kind of example:

    So its okay to open a extinfo.dat, but not to do the reverse.. [​IMG]

    Congratulations! Your copy/paste skills are top notch!

    Next time, use [.code][./code] tags to keep the formatting and [.spoiler][./spoiler] tags to condense it so people don't have to scroll forever.


    Anyway... allow me to reiterate and clarify what I've said many times before...
    If you can't figure out how to use the software to edit extinfo.dat (or even infolib.dat) then you will almost assuredly have NO idea where to begin updating the file to add support for new games.

    What you copy/pasted above is NOT the tool.
    It is a SAMPLE (i.e. it's not 100% perfected and mostly there just to show it's possible and how to do it) batch file (a script that executes multiple commands) for extracting the various files into a more human-readable format.

    but you can understand, how it more easyer to use a software like "R4CCE" than some solution like you suggest

    and we still dont know how found the information to complete this kind of file:
