Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For - 180 titles

Post by matt198t » Tue Dec 16, 2014 3:01 pm

all with the same movie runtime and size.

Is there a process to find the right title?

The screenpass protected titles I have come across up until now have always let me narrow it down to 4-8 titles going off the movie runtime.. I then rip these titles and use chapter start/end times to work out the correct title.

This disc has 180 titles all with the same movie runtime :s

Any ideas?

Hi matt198t...

(if you have the same version of this disc, the following should help you):

Checked and verified correct playlist as: "503.mpls"


...Correct segment order (only matched one playlist): = "00503.mpls"

Segment map : 101,179,112,103,102,104,111,114,105,110,113,106,109,108,107


The particular "track" that this "503.mpls" playlist appears as - will vary depending upon your "minimum length" preset settings within MakeMKV ~ just look at the "playlist" section in MakeMKV's information panel whilst scrolling through all the fake playlist entries until you see the correct "503.mpls".

>...

I was after exactly the same info as Matt - how did you find out what playlist it was?

Hi Guys, I've been offline over Christmas... glad that worked for you rosie...

As for how I identified the correct playlist...

I followed the tip provided by this guy: (thanks dannyboy48888) :arrow: http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic ... =45#p33998

...But I see that matt198t already found that thread in a later post...

Hope it helps you too in the future too. :D

thanks for this :-) very helpful as I also normally try to work out the playlist from the movie length but this one was all the same length.

anyone know how you work out which is the correct running order for other tricky discs like this?

The definitive way is to rip them all, watch the results, and pick the one without the flaws. But that's impractical for most people.

Part of the problem is that many titles have multiple versions, so that the correct play list for one you buy from, say, Walmart in the US won't work for one you buy from Amazon in the UK, or maybe even Target in the US.
