Subject: PS5 minimum version to play Elden Ring
Hey all, I just bought elden ring for ps5 but I wanna keep it below version 4.03 in hopes of an eventual kernel exploit coming out. When I put the disc in the ps5 it tells me I need to update to use the disc but I'm unsure to which version this update will take me. If anyone knows what the minimum version to play Elden Ring is I can either rest easy with the update or just bite the bullet and wait for a proper exploit to be released. Thanks in advance.

Subject: Seed mp4 Codec Tag Change
I have some HEVC/h265 mp4s that I acquired that I had some difficulties with. I was trying to stream them from my media server to my iPad and iPhone. I tried playing them in safari which is supposed to work as safari supports HEVC. I realized after a bit that the files were codec tagged with
hev1 and ios will only work with files tagged with a codec id of
hvc1. I changed the tags using ffmpeg on a copy and it worked fine, and you can do it in a way without reencoding.
I'd like to keep seeding these files, however to save space as I still dont have a seedbox I don't want to be having copies of these files. If I changed the codec tags of the original files and attempted to continue seeding them would I have any issues? My assumption is its only local metadata I changed so it should be fine, as the file wasn't reencoded, but I'm not sure if I'm wrong. I did it with one and qbittorrent continued to seed fine but I'm not sure if I'm messing something up down the line.
TLDR: Does changing local codec tag of an mp4, without reencoding, cause problems with seeding the file?

Subject: What filelocker service do you hate the most?
Some might say stuff like Rapidgator, etc; but Baidu wins the "shittiest file hosting service" award for me. I've never seen such a website that is SO INSISTENT on you not downloading the file you want.
First of all, it is in Chinese, with no English variant, so you either guess or spend ages putting it into Google Translate.
Second, the "download" button only downloads their spyware app, NOT the actual file.
Third, the only way to create an account, without which they won't let you download anything, is to input a CHINESE phone number. No, US or any other phone numbers are not accepted.
Fourth, literally no debrid service supports that website, so it's not like you can pay for a debrid service and bypass that.
What is your most hated filelocker?
Subject: Question about Massgravel MAS and Windows 10?
I am fixing up my wife's busted ass laptop for her daughter. I added some RAM and a spare 2.5 SSD I had lying around.
I want to install a fresh copy of Windows 10 on it and wipe everything. However I do not own a retail copy unused.
So.. I have 2 questions..
If I wanted to buy one from Kinguin or somewhere, I have read that you have to activate it by phone using SLUI. How does that work exactly?
If I wanted to use MAS, do I need a key at all? Or do I just install, skip activation, run the script and voila? Sounds like the cracks you could get on TPB back in the day.
I don't mind getting a key if I have to, I am just curious what I need to do the MAS method since it seems much easier.

Is there anything you wouldn't pirate for one reason or another? Maybe it's a game, a subscription service, a movie etc, for me personally i don't pirate anything made by a small game studio called "running with scissors" but i want to hear from others

Subject: How would I store my steam games offline?
Apologies in advance if this is answered in the megathread, I couldn’t find answers in that case. I’m wondering if it’s possible to transfer the data files for my entire steam library to an external source that could be, say, plugged into a pc and launched for play without steam being installed.
I’m worried about a steam account hack, or the possibility of the world going to shit and not being able to access the internet, and would like to play my games or have the option of doing so without needing steam’s drm.
(I know there are mentions of tools for cracking steam games, but I’m not sure if that’s the same thing as what I’m looking for) my competence in this field is also comparable to being unable to pour out a boot of water with instructions printed on the heel… so instructions may fall on deaf ears if presented in the megathread

Subject: Transmission v uTorrent/bitTorrent
So when I got my current laptop, I downloaded Transmission instead of uTorrent (which I had previously used) partially because I was sick of uTorrent's excessive ads slowing down the app and my computers and partially because places like this talk so bad about it.
The UI of Transmission is MUCH better and the app uses up much less of my CPU/memory/etc. The problem is, for as much as I try I could not get Transmission to go at anything resembling a decent speed. While uTorrent/bitTorrent will get me downloads of ~1-2 mb/s or more over a VPN, with Transmission I'm lucky to hit 100 kb/s. I tried everything I could find online about this, had everything enabled I was supposed to be, had it set to use random ports each time, had an exception for it in my firewall, and nothing worked to get it higher than like ~30kb/s on average
so now against my better judgment I'm back to using bitTorrent again, which is ugly, janky but at least works until I can come up with something better
Subject: Did DeDRM for calibre stop working for anyone else?
I used it a couple of months ago. Tried to do it again today without having updated calibre or adobe digital editions and it can no longer decrypt certain files. Did something change that I wasn’t aware of, or does it just not always work? These are all PDF files by the way.
Subject: Artbooks site for video games, JRPG, anime. Artbooks gala and Daryldixon gala are both dead websites.
So these websites I've mentioned have a cool collection of artbooks from video games example dark souls or assassin's creed. The site is best because other artbooks of games you haven't heard of are there with a cover picture provided so you can discover some cool art you can reference later.
I've seen artbooks in b-ok (what's the official website now?) and archive org but they are hard to find because they are keyword specific and there are like millions of other books that pop up that are not artbooks so I have to check Amazon for the specific name and the related "customers also viewed" or "customers also search". Libgen doesn't yield results the same as b-ok or archive but libgen is still good for other reading materials, the artbook list in libgen is limited maybe because these artbooks are very keyword specific.
I want to start back in improving my digital art so I can feed myself and buy socks and white shirt for jogging exercise. I have no source of income I need to have one and survive asap within a timeframe of 1 month. When you have no source of income people will treat you like you are subhuman.
Anyway the artbook I am searching for is Castlevania: The Art of the Animated Series since it's clean art with nice coloring. I don't see it in b-ok or archive. I've seen many good artbooks like street fighter, darkstalkers, granblue, fire emblem awakening, ogre tactics, persona 5, etc. in those 2 websites but not castlevania.

Subject: Using mods for cracked EU4
Recently i downloaded EU4 via a dodi repack because i didn't want to pay $300 for all the dlc on steam. The problem is, i absolutely cannot stand the default look of EU4, so on steam i play with the graphical map improvements mod.
I downloaded the mod manually and put it in C:\Users\MyName\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\mod and followed the instructions from this thread, but it didn't work.
With the repack the game is launched straight from the .exe file, so there is no launcher.
Any help would be much appreciated.
