Chance of game failure in Sony PlayStation 1?

#1

The log shown below from Alcohol 120% shows that 2 sectors couldn’t be read from a game CD for my PS1. What are the chances that these errors are in critical areas of the game? The game has a lot of FMVs (mostly pool/billiards training videos), so maybe I’ll be lucky and these errors are in those places? Anyway, you can have a look here:

I see from ISObuster that the affected area is in the “H:\MOVIES2\1_34.STR” (sector 139470 is in this file) & “H:\MOVIES3\2_23.STR” (this is the biggest file in the game, which is another movie) files.

I’ll try making a copy at 4x, like was said on here before and see what happens. Thanks for any advice/info! :slight_smile:


#2

With just 2 unread sectors on the disc, the chances of it affecting the playback are minimal.


#3

And try using a legal version


#4

LOL :rolleyes:

It was the trial. It’s legal to have and use a trial. BLAH.

If your making images of your psx games, i recommend goldenhawk CDRwin. Much better than alcoho lat least
