 │                      PRESTIGE AND THE 50 DISK LIMIT                        │
 │────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────│
 │                                                                            │
 │  Two months ago, 5 major groups got together and formed an organization,   │
 │  the SPA, in order to set certain standards for the games cracking scene.  │
 │  One of these standards is the 50 disk limit.  All groups, including the   │
 │  original 5, have held to this standard since it was first initiated.      │
 │  The original 5 were Hybrid, Prestige, Razor, Mantis, and Napalm.  Only    │
 │  three of these groups still exist, and Hybrid has pulled out of the SPA.  │
 │  This means that only RZR and PSG are still part of the alliance.  When    │
 │  the SPA was formed, it was agreed that 5 groups should be part of it in   │
 │  order to make important decisions that affect the direction of the PC     │
 │  scene.  It then follows that important decisions such as the disk limit   │
 │  should not be discussed until the SPA's ranks are replenished.            │
 │                                                                            │
 │  Having said all that, Prestige feels it should inform the public about    │
 │  an event that could hold some importance for all of us.  In the last      │
 │  month or so, Prestige has dominated over the other groups, as we are      │
 │  wont to do.  Coincidentally, the two other biggest groups (Razor and      │
 │  Hybrid) have approached Prestige about "voting" on a new 65 disk limit.   │
 │  Prestige feels that the 50 disk limit we have now is excessive, but we    │
 │  agreed to it in the spirit of compromise two months ago.  Now two of      │
 │  the original members of the SPA are trying to overturn the limit, in      │
 │  what we feel is a fit of desperation.  If the limit is raised, many       │
 │  more games will be "rippable" under the disk limit.  This, in turn,       │
 │  will increase Hybrid and Razor's chances of putting up a fair fight       │
 │  against PSG, which as we said earlier, has been dominating in every       │
 │  aspect.                                                                   │
 │                                                                            │
 │  Hybrid and Razor will argue that quality games like DaggerFall can be     │
 │  released under a new 65 disk limit.  This is, of course, true.  Just      │
 │  as true, however, is the fact that there are many more games of poor      │
 │  quality that will come out under this new limit as well.  This is not     │
 │  the only bad aspect of a larger disk limit.  Perhaps you have noticed     │
 │  that many large (30+ disks) releases are quickly re-released as less      │
 │  than 10 disks by what we like to call "no-name" groups.  Even Prestige    │
 │  is guilty of putting out games as larger than they need to be, in the     │
 │  interest of saving time so that we can win on the release.  I can't       │
 │  defend our actions to you, but I can tell you that EVERY time the disk    │
 │  limit has increased, the ripping quality has summarily gone DOWN.  So,    │
 │  where you now see a 50 disk version of some freeware repackage of Euro    │
 │  Fighter 2000 "Tactops" like Razor put out a few weeks ago, you'll see     │
 │  a 65 disk retread of the same crap.  Do you really want this?             │
 │                                                                            │
 │  By the same token, a 58 disk version of DaggerFall is not likely to       │
 │  include many of the features you would expect from this kind of game.     │
 │  You probably won't get sound, music, animations important to the          │
 │  development of the game's plot, and God knows what else.  Do you really   │
 │  want to download a 58 disk release only to find out that you should       │
 │  have gone out and bought the game in the first place?  Unlikely.          │
 │                                                                            │
 │  The courier groups, who thrive on bytes uploaded to a site or board,      │
 │  might enjoy a larger release to trade.  I would ask them to consider      │
 │  the sites and boards they trade on - they have limited disk space.  I     │
 │  would ask them to consider the users that download the games - its bad    │
 │  enough getting stuck with 30 disks of crapware, but you'll be doubly      │
 │  annoyed if that 30 disks turns into 60, with full animations of the       │
 │  company's logo as well as an aerial view of the disk duplication          │
 │  facility where your pirated game originated.                              │
 │                                                                            │
 │  But seriously, folks.  The 50 disk limit is more than generous for what   │
 │  we do today.  Look at the past 20 or 30 releases, how many of those are   │
 │  even in the 40-50 disk range?  Only a handful, and most of those were     │
 │  not worth downloading in the first place.  If we open the door to a 65    │
 │  disk limit, we'll get a small handful of quality games, true.  But the    │
 │  price we have to pay, in the form of bad ripping and more bad games, is   │
 │  simply not worth what Hybrid and Razor are trying to sell.                │
 │                                                                            │
