Nice work guys.

Why didn't this item appear in the "New Posts" though?

See this thread:

Basically, if you you visited the board between when the news was posted, and when it was moderated (made public) then you won't see it.

From what I have heard from IFW it was quite significant. You might be interested in seeing its protection track density graph.

Nope, Merchant Colony etc are the "prequels" for that technical masterpiece of protection on Cavitas. (masterpiece in idea etc, not exeuction or hackability, ie it should be 1 minute to crack, it is near impossible to faithfully replicate)
It is technically very impressive and I don't get impressed by protections very often as Fiath surely can tell.

More details and explanation in some upcoming wip update... maybe.

I have a question. When games are preserved what does that entail exactly? Is there a repository where the "preserved" games are put? Or are they spread around. I do not see a place to download the preserved games.

People who submit the originals receive them. From then on it's their responsibility I guess

Thanks for that IFW

Yes, they are kept on enterprise-level backup facilities.
