    Yeah, I noticed those too. The funny thing is that the extinfo.dat that's included breaks support with some USA and European games.

    Yeah, I'm finding the ones on the loda site to be less than 100% perfect. I had to fix 7 Wonders II (E) last night which turned out to be a problem with the infolib rather than the extinfo. Strangely, it worked with the infolib dated 03/03/10 but the two or three updates since then have broken it almost as if the fix was removed deliberately.

    It makes one wonder what other (E) and (U) games might have been affected.

    i am not surprised!
    it seems like they didn't even updated their infolib with other E/U release
    i don't see yugioh U version there
    and
    a few other release after pokemon ranger 3.....

    i don't think they did lie or what
    is just they are not doing any E/U games [​IMG]
    so when they say compatible till 4783 it means it is compatible till the latest J release not E/U release

    None of them are unsafe exactly. It's just that some of them won't do what they're supposed to.

    We dont try japanese games for theme, they dont try US or EURO games for us,
    its logical, no?

    So, if we work together, maybe we will evolve all together [​IMG]
