GameCube CVS

August 30th, 2006 by Multimedia Mike

When I started mounting GameCube disc images with my gcfuse utility, perhaps the strangest thing I found (apart from 11,500+ Ogg Vorbis files on one title) was intact CVS directory structures on a number of discs. Of course, CVS directories don’t give away much interesting detail; it’s not like there’s leaked source code living inside. Perhaps the most interesting thing is comparing the CVSROOT strings to information found in the MobyGames database. So, Yasunari Soejima, Hiroki Sotoike, and Fumihisa Sato: I just wanted to helpfully point out that you neglected to delete the CVS directories before creating the final disc images for certain GameCube games.
