Release id #20947 : Boulder Dash 2

Not really about just this release but I noticed some time ago that version uploaded here was 2x packed and packer used was several years newer than release itself. I have uploaded original(?) file but is it ok to delete older file which is not the original release?

What is the policy on cases like this?

I understand that checking releases on this detail level is weird but I try to make sense why checksum checks against known cracks here on csdb doesn't work all the time :)

Unpacking the previous prg we obtain the exact same file you uploaded, so it was really just recrunched by someone else. The crunched version can be deleted for good.
I don't even think there is a "policy" about this, just use common sense. Your observation that Time Cruncher didn't exist at the time of the release is correct, hence the crunched prg is not the original. It could be have simply replaced by the unpacked prg obtained by Unp64 =)
