BWA files?

Hi Everyone,

Today when i was checking the type of cd protection of Rollercoaster Tycooon 2 on portmac. It said on the chart:

Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 SecuRom - 4.83.11.0049 (BWA)
Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 (U.S) SecuRom - 4.82.01 0007

Now beside the first type of protection it had a link to bwa files, so i clicked on it. The link lead me to download the bwa file of Rollercoaster Tycoon. After downloading it, I was confused on what to do with it. So the question i have right now is: What is a BWA file and how do i use to burn my game? I have alchol 120%, and it would be appreciate it if someone can tell me a step by step guide of burning this game. Thank You!

The bwa file is used with BlindWrite. It contains information that is needed to make a working copy.

Alcohol 120% uses similiar format called MDS. You can turn MDS files into BWA files but not visa versa.

Quick Guide for BlindWrite 5.
Put in disc and hit copy button. Put in blank disc and press copy button. Done.
It has a wizard interface so it is basically that simply.

Alcohol 120%
Image wizard. Use SecuROM *NEW profile.
Burning Wizard. Use same profile.

Copying this protection is also dependant upon what CD Burner you have.
