|Lots of new Vault updates to report. First up, the Xbox 360 Vault and PlayStation Vault are now complete. The Redump project catalogs new Xbox 360 discs regularly so The Vault is never truly complete, however a new "missing" page has been added making it easy to spot (and upload) new titles. A new Vault has been opened for the Sega Master System and Nintendo Virtual Boy containing every known game in the world. Over in the Wii Vault a new .rvz option has been added with games gradually being added alphabetically. .rvz files are often smaller than .wbfs so the goal is to offer both formats. And finally, the PlayStation 3 Vault is now accepting uploads and discs will be decrypted on-the-fly with NKit2. With that the entire Vault is now upload enabled. That means any visitor can upload any missing title, no registration or approval required.
Many of these updates required hardware upgrades, involving several scheduled (and unscheduled) outages over the past few weeks. Most of the kinks have been worked out so things are running smoother now.
|Happy New Year! The new Xbox 360 Vault continues to grow and is now 70% complete. Thanks to contributors the Dreamcast Vault is now 100% complete, the PlayStation Vault is nearly 100%, and the PlayStation 2 Vault is growing steadily. International content has grown tremendously so The Vault now lists games from your country/region by default, rather than defaulting to US games.
Recently No-Intro has decided to remove pirate, aftermarket, and homebrew titles from their standard .dat files, so they will be removed from The Vault automatically in the coming days. This should make maintenance easier since these titles generally cause the most changes.
|Thanks to the contributions of many visitors the Wii Vault is now 100% complete and contains every known Wii disc in the world. The PlayStation 2 Vault also continues to fill and some disk upgrades this week ensure there's plenty of room to grow. A recent database upgrade should also keep things running smoothly.
Today Vimm's Lair is proud to announce the opening of the Xbox 360 Vault! To kick things off the "#" section is complete as well as half the letter "A". Screen shots are included on games supported by Xenia though it's compatibility is still a bit low. More games will be added alphabetically and all are welcome to contribute.
