Ok, so after spending half the day at the beach in 37 degree weather without sunscreen yesterday, I'm at home today as I can bearly move smile I'll spend some time on the site adding as many things as I can, (let's not get too picky and carried away, I am just one person after all, despite my agreement to do this). Moving forward I will add in descriptions as requested. Descriptions for previous games I've added will come later. I am in process at the moment of making the site look easier on the eyes. I'll add a letter bar for each game rather than just having a single master list (although I may keep this in as well). I'll fill in the missing blanks for the regions. I had to leave them blank because no one specfied what they were.

ok Dino Crisis must be failing some kind of anti-mod / anit-debug protection, if I use the old crack on the image then it works with minor gfx problems during one of the intro scenes

Fascinating. Is there documentation on what the crack does?

Bomberman (PAL) works fine.




So does Rival Schools: United by Fate (PAL).





These gets a black screen:

No One Can Stop Mr. Domino (PAL)
Soccer Kid (PAL)
Worms Armageddon (PAL)

That's odd, both these are definitely libcrypt games (redump even has the subdata files for those very images) and MESS won't read the subdata, although I thought Spyro 2 was meant to fail outright in that case. Guess they both must fail in more subtle ways instead, or something weird is going on.

Interestingly a proper clonecd rip of the games converted wouldn't work, nor would the JPN copy I had.. could be there is some weird cpu bug making a pass a fail and a fail a pass, or it only kicks in on certain models or something tho.

*edit* ah, reading around Spryo 2 will bomb out (crash the playstation) after a couple of levels without it, so yeah it will 'look' like it's working. Spyro 3 will eventually trigger the copy protect message on the balloon scene.

They don't boot if they get different, but still wrong subdata or something.


If you are interested in, I can upload the CHD's or the BIN/CUE images. Also, I can try anything else looking for crashing the system. If I'll get some time, I'll play the next 2 or 3 level of Spyro...

Hogs of War (Europe) (with Paradox crack)
- works, except for initial FMV which is invisible

included a pic of the cracktro before everybody decides to erase them from time.. the original is libcrypt protected.

game is basically worms in 3d for anybody who has never seen it before.

Weren't people so afraid to touch it after its failure in March, I'd say making it a MESS wiki page at http://mess.redump.net so that multiple trusted sources (tend not to get idiot wiki subscribers) could add to it.

... but that's just me.
