Fixes and Additions

Posted by sadikyo at September 6 2022, 18:43:00

Hello everyone! 

We appreciate all of your efforts, including fixes and additions that you have contributed to our database.  However, we've been receiving a large number of fix requests via PMs, Discord chats, and other methods, outside of the forums.  Unfortunately, documentation for these fixes is now sorely lacking and staff workload increases trying to keep track of everything. 

Staff has discussed this issue and we've decided that from now on, all fixes and additions to existing entries need to be posted on the forums in the "Fixes and additions" section for documentation purposes.  In addition, any posted fixes may not be addressed for a few days, in case other people want to express any concerns or disagreements with the proposed changes.  This will ensure transparency and documentation for all corrections to the database.

If you have any questions about this process, feel free to ask any member of staff.  Thank you!

Dump dee dum

Some tidbits since our last update:

- There are now more than 10.000 Sony PlayStation discs in the database!
- The Sega dumping experts are getting close(r) to finishing off the Dreamcast USA + PAL Games.
- The IBM PC section now has over 18.000 discs. Many older USA dumps are currently being rechecked with modern tools to ensure that they are correct.

As always, keep contributing!

50.000 discs

Posted by Jackal at April 27 2018, 11:20:58

Today our project reached a major milestone: There are now 50.000 discs in the database.
Since our last news post around 12 months ago, close to 10.000 new discs have been added to the database:

- Around 900 PSX and 950 PS2 discs, including many Japanese, PAL regional variants and Demo's.
- Close to 800 Sega (DC, MCD, SS) discs.
- Over 400 XBOX discs, bringing the USA set much closer to completion.
- Close to 4.000 IBM PC discs (!).
- Over 3.000 discs for other systems (including modern, as of yet undisclosed ones).

A huge thanks goes out to our contributors and also the Video Game Preservation Collective (VGPC) for all their efforts.

A note to prospective dumpers

Posted by Jackal at March 26 2017, 14:57:08

Just to clear up some confusion, Redump.org is and always will be a public preservation project that is open to new contributors.

New accounts can be requested here: http://forum.redump.org/forum/13/guests … -requests/

For dumping CD's (with DiscImageCreator), the main hurdle is the need for a genuine Plextor drive. Over the years, we have been able to accomodate new dumpers by offering them locally bought Plextor/Plexwriter drives at affordable prices (around 20-30 EUR including shipping). We are still offering these services, so if you are a prospective dumper aiming to make a lot of contributions, but in need of an affordable Plextor drive, feel free to contact us.

Other media types and systems such as XBOX (360), GC/Wii, DC, PS3 each have their own set of tools and equipment that are needed for dumping.

Dumping instructions for every system, as well as undumped lists (not always complete or up-to-date) can be found in the Wiki.
