    Is there a way to do it myself? Or is it more complicated than adding a game id and stuff?

    Any comments are appreciated! Thx [​IMG]

    I too want to know how to do this so I can make my patched games load faster.

    Except for the facts that:
    1). They used a version of the infolib.dat which either was missing or removed many (U) games that were working.
    2). They don't update for (U) releases.

    I think you are confusing infolib.dat with extinfo.dat. The infolib.dat from http://loda.jp/dsm/ does not remove (U) games and they do update for (U) releases.

    We know that they've broken at least one (E) game in their infolib updates. Nobody can be bothered to try every western release to see how many more they've fucked up.

    Excluding the problem with 7 Wonders II (E), I've had nothing but good experiences with the infolib.dat updates from http://loda.jp/dsm/. I was just bringing up the point that he was mixing up infolib.dat and extinfo.dat. It might be worth mentioning that the last infolib.dat update I got from http://sites.google.com/site/weeklyinfolib/ also broke 7 Wonders II (E).

    That's because Denieru7 uses the loda.jp infolib as the base for his infolib updates and he was clearly unaware of this error.
