I use Firefox mainly, and I don't remember any particular patterns (ex. I got "exe" in Vita but not sure I've ever searched/selected those, maybe were part of another set).

Next time it happens I'll debug a bit and try other browsers, but it wasn't super important, just weird.

So... I dunno if anyone suggested this before, but is it possible to make it so that we can download individual files, not just entire archives? I think it would be convenient in cases such as searching for specific tracks in a rip, or if a preexisting rip is updated with new tracks (such as from DLC), and we can just download the new content instead of redownloading the whole archive (especially if they're big ones). Of course, if this feature isn't possible, I understand. Still, just throwing the idea out there....

I'd have to ask Josh first, but as a public service I'd imagine it'll very likely be too much load on the server as every single file access would have to start a 7z decompression process with respective memory consumption and run time which due to the huge set sizes is not negligible.

If the main use case is just getting the updated portion between an old and new versions of a set it may be worth thinking about versioning and automatically generating diff packages. Not sure there is real demand for that though.

If need be, we can always repack to non-solid zip.

I don't think it's a good idea at all, it'd make sense to download parts of sets & look for select compositions if descriptive filenames or tagged rips were the majority of VGM collection but it's not.

Also if anyone rerips a title I don't see anything preventing him from simply including both existent & new/changed files in a single package. Even if most tracks (like WMAs in specific directories of Xbox discs or AT3 streams coming from BGM folders of a PSP/PS3 image) are identical in both variants of a set there's no valid reason (IMHO) for a ripper to make an archive with only added tracks and wait for a moderator to do quite a few actions - probably DL that outdated ver., unpack both v.1 & v.2 then repack it all in one 7z file. I think it's way more reasonable for a provider of a fresh gamerip to do those rather easy routines himself.

Finally redownloading huge sets only for added DLC BGMs is somewhat realistic scenario but are there many such rips? Then my humble opinion is that it happens quite rarely when DLC music's added later to an existing downloadable gamerip, am I right?

All in all this is a novelty which is presumably hard + time-consuming to implement but it won't do much good anyway.

These days dlc packages include the older updates and/all the initial release as well but would be a good.idea if there wasn't too much server load or memory consumption.

@datschge - tag weirdness documented, with Chrome even (so you can't blame Firefox :P)

- I select "com", then filter with "PC": 4 sets

- I open the first's file list: there is no "com" extension inside

- I go back to tags (link or closing/opening Chrome), filter by "com"/"pc": 3 sets now (the set I opened disappeared).

Originally it was 6 sets, 3 vanished during my tests (2 on Firefox, 1 on Chrome, I take it's some server thing). Presumably the other 3 sets will disappear from the "com" tag when opened too, you have 3 chances to debug :3

Another bug: set "Shikigami no Shiro - Nanayozuki Gensoukyoku" has multiple 0-byte files like "bgm.txth#1.txtp", but won't show in the file list/tags.
