Hi guys,

sorry for asking, but what do these kind of posts mean?

Should it be for people who own the original Disks, to compare the checksums with their own Versions, to see if their Disks are still intact?

If so, why can the checksum of Disk1 differ and what kind of checksum is that(md5, sha)?

Thank you :)

By the way, most of my original Floppys seem to be broken, as I got many read errors while trying to "dd" them :(

Yes, disk 1 has different.

This is my SHA1 of disk 1.

SHA1:84f7d9934516350d10ff395d2521332681f9f673 / disk 1 (USA : 02-25-1993)

Of course, this is verified.
(I've compared it with other user)

I successfully re-dumped disk 1. Turns out my copy of X-Wing matches 595.

Here's the correct checksum data for my copy of X-Wing.

The language field in TGOD diskimage database is somewhat confusing to me... For 595 it says german although the actual game language definitely is english.

Can someone please clarify what Language acutally refers to if not in-game language?

In this case it actually tells the language of the country the game was sold in.

Yes, for cataloguing it here on the site for reference.

Just for the record: that's not correct as I understand it. There's no German version of the original X-Wing. The game is completely in English, only the readme file on disk 1 is translated, that's why disk 1 differs from the English release but not the other disks (btw, dumped my original disks and got the same hashes). Manuals were in German (do you mean that with assets?), but then the region should be stated, not the language.

X-Wing was translated into German only by installing the 2-disked "Imperial Pursuit Upgrade Kit", which made the game German and installed the Tour of Duty. Note that "Imperial Pursuit" was also available in Germany on a single disk, which didn't translate the game. That's the so-called "1st Edition".

Yes - I was referring to the box, manual and booklets when talking of "assets". The game itself is all english. Sorry if that caused confusion. You are right about the language/region confusion btw. I'll try to be more concise in the future.
