every game has different protection, every game will have to be worked on one at a time, there are no easy shortcuts.
figuring out the PGM protection is very time consuming, for some games we still have no idea how to deal with it.
due to the very different nature of the protection it will never come together like CPS2 did, it will take a long time.
