Default Dissappointing news on the Contra release

sponsored links

 
Well, the good news is that the DVD-checks are, in fact, removeable. The bad (NO-REALLY BAD) news is that it is simply a demo taken from PSM (Playstation Magsazine). I had just realized this when I noticed that the main info file (SLUS/SLES file on FULL games) is named SLPM_999.99. This is a designated name for all the PSM demos' main file (I checked it against all the Demos that I already own).

Sorry to dissapoint you all with this news, but on the bright side it will probably be a nice demo to own, kind of like the SOCOM demo was, and MGS2 and so on.......

At least we all know now.

it was stated as a beta but can you prove that its the exact same one on a psm demo disc? do the checksums match and whatnot?

I don't have the Deom from the magazine, so I cannot say FOR CERTAIN, but the SLPM999.99 pretty much confrims this. But miracles do happen, and that would be exactly what we need for this to be a complete game.
I am burning now, and I will get back with the results

Well, it boots, then hangs at a black screen. I guess I may have missed a few checks, if anybody else knows any DVD strings to check, let me know, and I will edit them out and try again.
