If this BM 1.1 is really true, we can have it installed with our current Open Manager without any problem, for trouble games use BM 1.1 for older games use OM 1.16, simple as that!
That is a definate solution. However, I think the real headache will come for all of the uploaders. What if another version comes out and rips them differently yet again? Suddenly there are 3 different types of of 1 game floating around out there.
Also, I think some people are right. It could just be a directory change.
Personally I feel that if it works will 100% of the games, the only way to achieve that would be 1:1 dumps. Personally I hope that open manager adds this feature reguardless of if the offical manager does or not.
Well - having image dumps it's easier on one side on other side it will effectivelly prohibit playing majority of the games from externall hard drives (or at least untill some alternative FS would be supported) as well as easy "patching" and modding of the games etc.
