something must be wrong with your Pandora files, I did download all new files from but only 35 files match your CRCs, the other 115 files 1,7 GB are not.

Well I have had other people test the Pandora DATs, without issue. Have you got a specific example for me to take a look at?

Post by: Cassiel on April 24, 2012, 06:19:26 PM
I've just checked 'Adamant Armor Affection Adventure' and I'm getting the same CRC32's off the files as you did. The packages were the same as in the DAT when downloaded (over the course of the last 2 months), and were the same up to a few days ago too. It's not unusual for a package to get 'replaced' on that repo I've found, but that's usually the odd one of two - this is certainly the first time there's been so many!

Not sure if OpenPandora have implemented some sort of change the last few days, I will need to investigate...

I get different CRCs when I download the files from with FF or with a download manager, with the download manager your CRCs are correct.

Woah woah woah....

Firefox (same as I'm using) = wrong CRC
Download Manager = correct CRC?

What download manager?

Post by: Cassiel on April 24, 2012, 06:37:17 PM

These packages come from this repository. The packages where downloaded over the course of the last few months, so CRC = DAT. As off a few days ago, someone else downloaded all these packages again (in one go) and CRC = DAT.

If you are saying you are getting different CRC's depending on HOW you download these packages then something is screwy IN THEIR REPOSITORY. I would guess though that they have changed something in the site which is upsetting Firefox (or possible other browsers) and maybe adding an extra few bytes or something.

At the moment its impossible to say which are correct without investigation (mainly by the OpenPandora team).

Both the 'wrong' CRC packages and the 'right' CRC packages both validate (as in it is simply a compressed archive that can be decompressed/tested) perfectly.

Think I'm gonna have to test via a bunch of different 'methods' then give OpenPandora repo owner the results so they can work out whats going on.

How annoying....   >:(

Thanks for letting us know anyway....

I think the CRC from the download manager is correct.

I use Atari800 as example

936743bb   from with FireFox
936743bb   from with downThemAll!
944b245d   from with FireFox
936743bb   from with downThemAll!

Post by: Cassiel on April 24, 2012, 06:54:37 PM
Looks that way.....

Just tested using MS Internet Explorer and getting the 'right' CRC, so I'm guessing either:
- OpenPandora have (recently) changed something that isn't playing nice with FireFox
- Mozilla have recently changed something (less likely) that isn't playing nice with repo

Either way, there's the POTENTIAL that RECENT additions to the DAT could have wrong CRC depending in when this occurred, though I doubt this is the case since these DATs were tested by a 3rd party a couple of days ago.

Had a look at those files in ff i do think its because they don't use a file size when downloading ,not the first time ff stuffs them up normally fall short.
U can use the about:config in the ff bar i guess its a internal setting.
But yes dta does them proper what i had to use in the past for stuff like this.
Looks cool that device wouldn't mind one :-)

Hey xvid,

The project and this forum are dedicated to our efforts in cataloging history of older software and computers/consoles/whatever. We do not provide nor distribute roms especially around here and would like to continue that way in order to avoid possible legal issues. Hope you understand :)
