For CODEX releases I was able to use 2016-08-15_rar540.exe no problem. But now when they're gone some major releases show up from other groups. For FairLight I haven't found a RAR version that works. Anybody know of a version that is compatible with their releases? Are they using something as ancient as themselves? ;)

Might as well ask the same regarding Razor 1911.

There are a lot of empty FuGLi releases, if anyone could upload proper srr files that would be great :)

For example

Lots of empty FuGLi releases by MyName (guest), 08 Apr 2022 19:42


I've recently started using and in some cases I've hit an unexpected error.

The last bit of output is

Quitter.__call__() takes from 1 to 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

My python skills are very limited, but from what I can tell this happens when the code in resample/ reaches lines 516-518 and neither the if nor the elif are true. Code execution proceeds to step # 7) and fails.
The .tmp file left in the directory has the right size, but not the right CRC compared to the original release file.

I guess this is an edge failure case and the file is not actually recoverable anyway, but I thought I'd let you know. If you need further information or a test case file, I'll be happy to help. hits an unexpected error in some cases by nevernow (guest), 12 Mar 2022 20:48

I've tested these RAR executables with an unpackaged scene release from 2009 "Need.For.Speed.Shift-RELOADED" and an unpackaged scene release from 2022 "Cyberpunk.2077.v1.5.Hotfix-CODEX" and it still works great with no reconstruction inaccuracies whatsoever, thank you for sharing!

This doesn't work with this release for example.
The .srr doesn't contain any other .srr and srr -x only extract the languages.diz.
The rar reconstruction finish but it fail passing CRC32 check.

Also, I think I know what's wrong with the sub reconstruction!

For the 2nd RAR, I think it's supposed to grab the .idx file, but it's instead trying to grab the 1st RAR again (which has the compressed .sub file), and from the input path at that.

Because in the resulting 2nd RAR in the output path (for which the CRC fails), there's no .idx file present.

If I manually recreate the subs (using version 4.11 in this case, which I also see that your tool uses) it works fine.

So I think it gets the files confused a bit and picks the wrong one to add to the 2nd archive.

I tried it out now and got it working. Nicely done! :)

However, I have a few questions/concerns/suggestions. For testing I'm using an input path with mixed subdirectories, some with rars some without. I also use a separate output path.

In the —auto-reconstruct mode, one would assume that it would also check for missing/incorrect extras as well, but it seems it is only looking for the default extensions (cleverly ignoring samples) and recreating full releases of those.

So I tried combining it with the —check-extras option, like this: -vafc

… but it seems that as soon as you include -c then it ONLY does that.

Don't get me wrong, this is still very useful to not have to manually download the .srr files from srrDB and doing this yourself manually one by one, but it would be nice to have a way of running the script that truly does it all.

And —check-extras doesn't seem to actually "check" anything, but rather just extract the stored files and recreate the sample, regardless of whether any existing files are already good. It seems that the intention is more to just identify the release(s) and extract/create all the extras, so that you can copy them all into your folders, overwriting any existing extras, good or bad, just to be safe.

The concern I have with this is that you lose the original file dates for these file. Would it be possible to have a way of actually comparing existing files with the newly extracted ones and only keeping the new ones that are actually needed?

However, actually comparing extras to each other maybe falls outside what pyReScene can do natively…

I was pleased that there also was an —check-crc option. One concern with this though is that if it doesn't find an .sfv in the input path, it does report this on screen, but directly after the script fails with this error message:

UnboundLocalError: local variable 'sfv_f' referenced before assignment

It would of course be better it if would continue with the other releases.

And even if you would not use a separate output path, then it would still fail on this, because it attempts to run the CRC check before extracting the .srr file. If it would do those two steps in the reverse order, then it would in theory be able to run the CRC check with the newly extracted .sfv file.

So I think the best would be to extract before the check and then always run the check with the newly extracted .sfv file, even if it's in another output directory.

So any update on this?

Interesting! I'll try to set it up and try it.

I would like to use rescepy as part of a script

for example if it was successful, all files ok, none missing, then i would like to run another command, like compress the folder

000-eminem-the_marshall_mathers_lp-repack-cd-flac-2000.sfv: 18 files, 18 OK, 18 misnamed. 10.650 seconds, 42971.4K/s

if there is an error like below

Searching on … 1c

Errors: 1

I would want to do nothing further

Also the same if there are files missing

00-cecil_taylor—for_olim-1987-oma.sfv: 8 files, 7 OK, 1 not found. 0.121 seconds, 297037.0K/s

Errors: 1

i want to stop further processing.

Any ideas how I could do this?

Thanks in advance

I think this is what you are looking for:

Is there a way of verifying a (supposedly) complete release using the SRR file?

Let's say I have a folder with a release and I have the SRR file for the release. Can I tell pyReScene to check the whole release, using the information in the SRR file to see that all files have the correct checksum?

I'm not entirely sure that the SRR file actually stores the checksums for the files within, so if it doesn't I guess it would have to calculate it on the fly for the stored files. For samples it can get it from the SRS file. And for the archives they're of course in the SFV file(s).

I think this would be a neat way of quickly being able to verify the integrity of the full release.

Or perhaps there is some other way of accomplishing the same thing. Maybe a tool that scrapes srrDB?

error -1073741515 is also known as 0xC0000135 and indicates probably a missing dll.
Does it also fail when running srr.exe directly?

start menu
cd …\path\to\srr

I don't know how to tell which dll might be missing.

I am using SRRGUI option 2 reconstruct from SRR file. So I put my SRR file path, input and output, rar path and temp file location. I also select the checkbox the directory same file name. All the files are located in the same folder. I get this error.
srrGUI: srr.exe C:\XXX\YYY.srr -l -ypri C:\XXX\ -o C:\XXX\YYY
srrGUI: Process running, please wait…

srrGUI: Process completed. srr.exe exit code = -1073741515

Is the temp path where my temporary files are? I am using this location for my temp files C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Temp\. Nothing is created even when I change the output or temp file location. Every process I select gives me the same error code.

Guys, hello. Your site is the best scene database on the Internet.

About 10 years ago, I was actively interested in collecting music scenereleases (electronic music labels and some favourite artists). To understand which catalog numbers and which scenereleases are in the collection, and which ones are not, I had to maintain my own database in Excel (for example, this is how it looks - or ). There were more and more releases in the collection, I realized that it was impossible to keep the database this way, and temporarily (I thought so, but it's been 8 years already) I stopped collecting labels, as I understood that I needed a site similar to, but only for the scenesreleases, where each release, if possible, would have a label, cat#, artist, year, etc., so that then everything would be automatically sorted by this information on the site. Moreover, as for the labels, the scenes of the group, although they themselves often sign the labels and the catalog of the number, but not always, especially the old releases from physical media (vinyls, discs).

In addition, it would be convenient to watch an ordered scene discography by any artist (albums, singles, as well as releases such as live performances, radioshows that are not included anywhere, even on

You have done something similar with the movie: there is the name of the movie and all the releases that relate to this movie are indicated inside, this is very cool!

Are you planning to do the same for music releases like I described above or something similar?

I have a bunch of ideas in my head how to implement this (I mean how it would all look (example - see image), but, alas, not coding, I'm not good at that).

P.S. Sorry for my English, I'm from Russia. Thank you, you are doing a great job keeping the scene alive!
