BW 4.9.9.9x (BW v-5 limited public beta RC)

Old thread here … please use this thread to post the problems about the registered user beta.

the current one is .95

yes it was long but I was so surprise than nobody requested me again about SF3 , autoplay to be removed… I was too quiet…

your just a glutton for starforce3 support requests aren’t you? and lets not even mention auto-play

:bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

Why you so do not like SF???:bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:

At all you do not want to speak about it:(

autoplay to be removed…

lap,
I did mention to leave autoplay as “default” and to add the option to disable. Topic speaks for itself as my Memorex 52MAXXeasily defeated SecuROM 4.8.4 (Republic: The Revolution) as reader\write. Backup plays flawlessly in the Memorex 52MAXX& LiteOn LTD 165H:D

Still waiting on my new key … is it Monday yet ??:wink:

no all the key was sent.
so if you didn’t receive it … you have to write the sales support with your info

Postal2 - SecuRom 4.84.69.0008
BlindWrite 4.9.9.95
Copy fails in all drives, tried CD-R and CD-RW and it just will not start the game. All other SecuRom 4.8+ games copy fine and work.
P.S. yes the original Postal2 disc works fine.

I just installed my beta copy of 4.9.9.95 beta and tried Nascar Racing 2003 protected with Securom 4.84.50.0166. I never have got a copy to work and this time is no different. Is there a setting I’m missing

you have to send the log file to the support to help us to advice.

Just tried to backup the german version on Tron 2.0 which comes on a DVD and is protected with securom new. After reading the Image Blindwrite tells me that “Media topology isn´t required”, but that´s not right for securom new. But i can´t change any settings to activate that function… :confused:

the tron 2.0 dvd german version is the first one we know on dvd. as it is pretty different, we don’t handle it properly, but it will be on the final version of bw5. At least we are on it.

Redid Postal2 with BW4.5.7
BWA file was bad looking but the game starts, still no luck with BW5.

Edit:

Same image written with BW5 fails.

Portmac,
Update Plex premium firmware to 1.04 and backups of SecuROM 4.8.4 should play flawlessly. Use Plex Premium as reader\write, label the backup “install\play disc” m8.

IMO if BW4 will make a working backup even with a bad looking BWA then BW5 should also back it up without updating the firmware.

I’ve been working with a “Afterdawn” member who owns the Plex Premium(TLA# 0002) and he encountered the same exact errors you are backing up SecuROM 4.8.4. After he updated firmware to 1.04, backups play flawlessly in his Plex Premium, LiteOn LTD 166. and MSI CR52-M cd burner. I’ve sent his log to Blindwrite team member Fabrice:D Struggle (if you wan’t to with 1.03& Blindwrite 5 Beta 4.9.9.95)

Here is his log:

BW4 + Plex Premuim 1.03 firmware has not failed with any game.
BW5 + Plex Premium 1.03 firmware has only failed to copy Postal2, everything else it has copied.
I will update to 1.04 and redo Postal2.

BW5 + Plex Premium (1.04) still fails doing Postal2

I just got my registration key and blindwrite almost 5 :slight_smile: i have a liteon dvd and liteon 52x24x52x burner

I have a question,

I did a real quick test on jedi knight academy which here in usa is securom 2.84 if i remember right, i set it to automatic and it did its thing did the topology at 8x then it burned it at 52x speed the copy will not work. i tried to slow down the burning speed by going in to options and setting it to slow but it still wrote the image at 52x :frowning:

any advice would be nice! (i also downloaded blinwrite tweaker but i did not get a chance to play with it yet)

Oh one last thing i really like those little buffer windows and current burning speed and all those cosmetic graphics during the writing process i hope you have em in your future plans :wink:

Thank you

you have to contact support… and send your log file for more advice.
