Dupes (maybe)

Anarkhya:
Hi,

Just look at mod.hi-score and mod.benefactor8 both by Blaizer..
(is there any dedicated topic I missed for dupes busting?)

Asle:
dupe indeed. trashed the 'hi-score' one.

There no topic dedicated to dupes, so, why not stick to this one :).

Oh, and thanks !

Sylvain

Well, since we have a sticky topic now...

I propose this convention:

"foo" = "bar": The songs are identical; "foo" seems to be the original
"foo" ~ "bar": One song is a slightly modified version of the other
"foo" > "bar": "bar" is just "foo" with some bits missing

These ones are just on Spaceman's page:

chuck2(endgame) = googoo gaga (strangely, these seem to be the wrong way round somehow?  "chuck2(endgame)" contains the text "goo goo gaa gaa !!!!!" and "googoo gaga" contains the text "the end!!!!")
=> Decided to keep both (slight sample diffs). Fact is that in the game (Chuck Rock 2) this music is a Protracker. I've renamed the non ripped one as "MOD.(Chuck Rock 2 DFC)googoo gaga"

"deja vu" > "rott !"
=> way too many differencies to trash either ones. Still renamed the first to "MOD.Anarchy-DejaVu-1" to highlight it's a converted file

"silicon-sector" = "digital innovation" = "kings of dawn" > "gloc-loader(fin.)"
=> "MOD.digital innovation" is gone. MOD.silicon-sector cannot be deleted as they differ in pattern data (more than a little).
MOD.gloc-loader(fin.) has to be kept as well as it's 30kb different and coming from a game.

"kayoto" = "(Premiere)game completed"
=> trashed NP3 converted one and renamed the other.

"system violation" ~ "mystikal!-vibes" (the position jump to the end in the first position has been removed, but the extended intro at the end is still present)
=>will do nothing for now. Discussion downwards.

"skeleton.menu2" = "qqoo9o"
=> trashed first one and renamed second one

"time-for-loving" > "time" (one of the samples has been blanked, and it's not even an unused sample!  Maybe he had to cut it down for something?)
=> MOD.time is gone. Absolutely identical save for the missing sample.

"big deal" = "wonderdog_preview"
=> latter trashed and first renamed to MOD.(Wonderdog preview DFC)big deal

"system controller" = "digitalinnovation 2"
=> the latter is gone

"hard-magic" = "seeing is believing_intro"
=> the latter is gone

"(Wolfchild)W4" = "w4"
"(Wolfchild)W5" = "w5" (you shouldn't need me to tell you this, really...)
=> w4 and w5 gone .... I know, I know

And, most puzzlingly...

"sunday best" (Spaceman & SuperNao) ~ "(Wonder Dog)title" (Spaceman)
...Apart from a few samples!
=> too many differences to trash either one.

Axxy:

--- Quote ---And, most puzzlingly...

"sunday best" (Spaceman & SuperNao) ~ "(Wonder Dog)title" (Spaceman)

...Apart from a few samples!
--- End quote ---

Only difference I can hear, is that hihat sample isn't played on the (Wonder Dog)title version, otherwise they sound identical.


Thankfully, my list seems to be a bit more robust when it comes to dupes or I have been a bit more lucky spotting them, but even I haven't been immune to finding dupes.

Mystikal Vibes & System Violation  (20k difference)
hard-magic & seeing is believing_intro  (20k difference)
big deal & wonderdog_preview  (1k difference)

Only 3 I have that have dupes for Spaceman.  Unless played back-to-back I would never had noticed the difference and the methods to locate dupes all would have failed on these 3. ie, name/filesize/contents...
I am going to remove seeing is believing_intro and wonderdog_preview, not sure about the other one, not sure which would have been the original release, possibly Mystikal Vibes (only cause the mod sounds like it's name).....

Nice spot ST!

Asle:
begun fixing around and commented when done in previous entries.
To be added :

also in Spaceman dir
MOD.music~ = MOD.music
=> the latter was trashed and the former was renamed

MOD.bubba.level5 = MOD.bubba.level6
=> trashed the first and renamed (or will) the latter

MOD.(Wonder Dog)game complete = MOD.bubba.title
=> Keeping both (will renamed the latter)

MOD.fusion~ = MOD.fusion
=> trash latter and renamed first to MOD.nuke.fusion


About that:

--- Quote ---"system violation" ~ "mystikal!-vibes" (the position jump to the end in the first position has been removed, but the extended intro at the end is still present)
--- End quote ---
"MOD.system violation.lng" is the same as "MOD.mystikal!-vibes". "MOD.system violation" is a converted rip for the same named demo.
I don't really know what to do about these, really.
I've attached all three files to this archive, if it can help decide. I've also added the respective ModInfo text files.

Ideas ?
