ALRIGHT. Just compiled it on my linux box and scanned my home folder. Aside from minor issues (see below), it does, in fact, work. I found two files, and have added them with the other three I found earlier. All five can be found and downloaded from:
http://www.brugenhagen.com/retro/

Feel free to re-download them as often as necessary to fix things. I will note that only two of those are actual images, the other three are files.


DANGER CAUTION ALERT MAJOR BUG ON LINUX:
It might just be my system, but if you are scanning a directory, and you have a symbolic link inside it to a higher directory, it jumps to the higher directory and starts scanning it. Meaning that when it reaches the same directory that it reached before, it'll jump back up and be caught in an infinite loop.
PROPOSED SOLUTIONS:
Edit program so it ignores symbolic links
Remove all symbolic links from directories to be checked.

Either solution works.

I incorrectly used stat() instead of lstat(). I'll release another version tomorrow, which will also support Unicode on Windows.

  • patch-2.5.9-7-bin.zip -> Patch_2.5.9.zip
The other files were already recovered. (The other files in the topic directory didn't match.)

EDIT: Second ZIP: Both files matched. (Sonic_1_GBA.rar and s2sms-disasm.rar)

Quick scan of my emulation folder found these two files:

CODE
SCDPP_(U).7z
Sonic Spinball (Prototype 0328 - Mar 28, 1994, 06.54).rar


Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?amlz35nqint

As far as I know, they're both readily available elsewhere, but I posted them just in case. Scanning My Pictures right now, and I'll do full drive scans overnight.

EDIT: I got three hits from, of all places, the Disgaea artbook... psyduck.png Possibly false positives?

CODE
win_08.jpg
win_19.jpg
win_37.jpg

The first two files you posted were already recovered. These files, however, were more interesting:

win_08.jpg:
  • Test.jpg (File:Test.jpg)
  • 20080801234413!Test.jpg
  • 20080801234432!Test.jpg

win_37.jpg:

  • 20080801233549!Test.jpg

Looks like they're all test images used by Xkeeper. :P

After running the program as administrator, here's what I get:
QUOTE
Scanning: .
Error opening file '.\hiberfil.sys'
Error : 13: Permission denied
Error opening file '.\pagefile.sys'
Error : 13: Permission denied

Then it started scanning after waiting for a while.

Added 102 files, including 2 SHA1 overwrites (I.e. replacing an existing corrupted image with a known good version of the image). That recovered most of the Sonic Screensaver section, along with a bunch of other files. smile.png (The rest of the images in that archive were already recovered.)

As a sidenote, scanning with a newer version of the DAT won't help you find any more files. The newer DATs are to prevent duplicates from being submitted, since they're generated after importing new files.

Here's rapidshare links of my stuff. I ran Retrofix and there were a bunch of matches. (THEY CAN ONLY BE DL'ED 10 TIMES.)

http://rapidshare.com/files/266116205/stuff.zip.html

http://rapidshare.com/files/266477358/Manual_Scans.zip.html

(Some files are just extra in case they might be able to stand in for unrecoverable files.)

There will be more, but it might take me a couple of days to get it all uploaded.

Also, if any of the Sonic 3 and Knuckles or Sonic CD level maps are irretrievable, never fear. It'll be a good excuse to remake them using Sonic Extractor, since the ones on the wiki weren't of very high quality (garbage tiles, no objects, water, etc).

And, here's a bit of an idea. What if you were to upload the contents of the wiki to Rapidshare or some other hosting service once every couple of months or so (or whenever reasonable), so that concerned users could download them. You never know when something like this might happen again, and having the data spread across the community would be useful. I suggest this, because it wouldn't put a strain on your servers if someone wanted to download everything. This is important Sonic history, and it needs to be securely preserved!

[this post was PM'ed to GerbilSoft. I posted it here also in case the PM failed, which sometimes happens to me]

Quick question. I noticed you apparently have been looking for some of the prototypes from the one large batch release still.

Could you tell me which they are? I still have all of them, but the only thing is that I converted them to .zip rather than .rar files for the most part so as to be compatible with Fusion in compressed form. As such this utility is almost certainly not going to find them, but I can get you those.

Unfortunately, most of these were already found. There were a few SHA1 overwrites though, so that should fix some corrupted images.

We're currently looking for exact SHA1 matches. After a few days, we'll probably start doing replacements for images that we can't find exact matches of.
