I couldn't have put it better than Kaminari did, we all understood the differences, scopes and resulting tensions of the two projects and their respective vision on preservation.
Now we can come back to the initial topic.

I have personally proposed two FM-Towns games - already in Neo Kobe - but which I couldn't see in Redump database.

You seem to believe that the GPS is Joseph's daily job. It's far from it. He's working around the globe for an infamous automotive company which controversial CEO has made the news these past months, and maybe now you can better understand why he's not (and cannot be) 100% committed to his retrogaming projects.

For years, dozens of our forum members have also been spending a lot of cash and sharing their dumps without any particular benefit or celebration either. Yet you don't see us getting angry as you are. I hope you didn't register here just to vent about your personal bitterness, because if that's the case you came to the wrong place. We don't want that sort of negative behaviour. We don't make any politics, we are not even an organization. We share and we help when we can.

That's what we've been doing for almost 20 years, and we'll continue doing just that. Now let's get back on topic.


F1ReB4LL has basically answered for me, so I'm fine stopping the "personal bitterness" and I'll be back to the topic, which was "Redump is preserving FM Towns videogames - Can you help?", a question that so far only answered with "Same old imperfect format then. Nothing like the GPS/GDemu analog redumping project", so I hope you understand the bitterness.

"We don't make any politics, we are not even an organization. We share and we help when we can". Same as us. Same words I used with Redon, who again, as I said, I pretty much respected in every single conversation I've had so far with him.

"And maybe now you can better understand why he's not (and cannot be) 100% committed to his retrogaming projects": I didn't said he needed to be commited 100% to it. I said I'm still waiting for answer for a formal and kind offering for help with no conditions that he promised to reply back weeks ago.

Going back to the topic, we are not only trying to buy and catch all the stuff we can, but finding collectors or FM Towns around the globe that could offer their help.

All our stuff is being shared too and is opened to anyone that needs it. We apreciate the effort that Neo Kobe has done all these years and their work was basic to properly document our missing lists.

Finishing my post with some cordial words: The debate over our method has been commented for so long and I understand that. I can understand how difficult to see again another dumping group promising good quality dumps for proper preservation while no definitive solution is offered to really go in "raw" terms when dumping CD-Roms.

So I can't ask anyone that doesn't believe in the Redump method to dump again their discs. But this time, we are offering proper documentation, a tool able to provide all kind of logs about the dump, open database to check the dump's profile, dumper recognision, quality dumping for audio discs and a chance to obtain dumps from verified sources and not only the Scene/different forums.

If someone felt we didn't recognise the work this forum has done over the years, my deepest apologies. This place was the first place we were crazy to get in to ask for serious help on this task and offer a chance to go further when it comes to FM Towns preservation. We may not be as perfect as you want this to be, but is still a chance to improve what has been done before.

Sorry for being late, but I've been focus compiling "Non Redump PS2 Japan" project and working on documentation on our Missing list for that platform on Asia/Japan regions.

Which discs were those?

Here you can find so far all the Redump set uploaded and mantained on Archive.org, thanks to our mate Balthier.

You can see here the new additions thanks to our mate Wiggy2k! Please, mind at least supporting him, he has been buying stuff for hundreds of pounds!
