With SecuROM new even the BlindWrite image that you make will not burn successfully. Twin Peaks will patch the image file itself by using the BWA file to add CD density info.
So, Twin Peaks is for merging BWA files and CCD image file to create a patched ccd file that can then be burned to a blank CD. It provides a way of copying SucuRom New (v4.8x) protected CD’s.
My problem is that even in safe mode, even using my Win98 partition to boot from . . . my BWA’s are still spiky as h#%$ - so I have to hope and pray that a nice, smooth, BWA is available for download for any SecuROM New title that I hope to “backup”.
Summary of Method
- create BWA file from BlindWrite’s BWA Builder
or download from: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?threadid=58185
- create ccd image file from CD with Clone CD, using the default Game CD settings
- run TwinPeak, select the two files and create “patched.ccd” - this overwrites the CloneCD created ccd file !!! you’ll have three new files in the same folder where you saved the original image files. Those files will be patched.ccd, patched.img and patched.sub.
- use CloneCD to burn the copy from the image file “patched.ccd”, using default Game CD profile
NOTE: you’ll probably get better results if you burn at relatively low speed (say 8x). [Note: If you’re using a version of CloneCD older than the current version 18.104.22.168, before burning you’ll be warned that the image size doesn’t match the lead-out specified in the toc and you’ll be given three burning options. The first option is correct: “Keep TOC as on source cd, write until end of image file”. If, however, you are using version 22.214.171.124, you won’t even be asked. CloneCD will just write using the correct option automatically.]
Alcohol has a similar utility called TwinCreator, but as I said, I have not heard reviews on that.
