It's super simple.
If disc1 of your set has MD5: 86fd694677098d26909086895404f571
then your set is 1.0
If disc1 of your set has MD5: 30f7dce98b6901290cb26c9baf27268f
then your set is 1.1
So both your sets are 1.1.
"pure" jpn release: japanese release for the japanese market.
In contrast to SCPS which is the japanese release for the chinese market.
While pure "jpn" release can be either 1.0 or 1.1, it seems SCPS release only come in 1.1, so compatible with the patch.
That's about it ^^;
I agree that it's simple, it just seems we have conflicting sources/information. You seem to know how to check if an image is "1.0" or "1.1", as I said before I'd be glad to check my files for 1.0s or 1.1s, more information can only help. Do you know of any such program that can do this?
If I do have a 1.1 Japanese release, then the SCPS release is supported but I'll need someone to report back before I can include this in the readme as officially compatible. I can't include it just because of hearsay, I'm sure you'll understand. I'm available to analyze my copies but mine are SLPS, so it's a different release.Reply to ser evergreen:
My copies clearly show SLPS-02020~1, no SCPS anywhere, and they even say "for Japan Only" and are also marked Not for Resale (both, but there are Rental versions out there). Google search shows the SCPS version as having slightly different information in the back cover, completely different from my copies.
You can even find a scan of Disc 1 I made years ago in my picasa gallery: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/qFGV80NwJSHDOv51qLgrRdMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink
Clearly marked disc, packaging, all in line with the regular Japanese release.
I can't be any more clear than this, I've been repeating the same information for a while now. This is my source, first-hand, and I stand by it. Somehow this seems to be conflicting with your information but what is your source and what release of AC3 do you have? This is important if we're to discuss and understand this.
