I have read posts… yes… i read them 10 times a day. Still i have yet to actually read (unless i accidently overlooked it) anyone making an actualy working 1:1 copy of the Farcry play/install cd 1 of the CDR set of disks. If anyone has achieved this… please… kindly post here with info of software, settings, or prayers one said to get it done. :stuck_out_tongue: Ty

Np remember to do this process with BOTH CD1 and CD3
and follow the instructions to a tee.

im glad to help. and welcome to CDFEAKS NO1 Backup Forum. :bigsmile:

THE METHOD ABOVE ONLY APPLYS TO SAFEDISK 2/3 GAMES BASED ON CDROMS ONLY.

DO NOT APPLY FOR DVDROM GAMES.

hope this helps. :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Well… here is the verdict… i followed your guide to the T… cause i wrote it down… and as i did one thing i crossed it out on my sheet b4 i moved on to the next step. I was able to use the disk to install… however i am not able to use the disk to play the game. It just sits there with the first farcry screen (small boxed window) and never initiates to loading the game. The DVDrom drive just blinks every once in a while. I dont know how to do this part (if it does not work Try your Burners As Readers With HIDE ATAP Enabled.) Have no clue where to do that at to see if that helps. So… until i figure that out… my attempt was a failure. I guess ill add my specs… to just in case thats an issue.

Ok you have nerd the saying right what works for one may not work for another.

well this is the method i use and my safediskv3 games i backup work…

lets see in your spec`s you didnt list your DVDROM ?

i only noticed these 2 drives in your spec…

Pioneer 105 DVD-RW(firm 1.33)
OptoRite 48x16x48x CDRW

if you use your Pioneer as your DVDROM then no wonder its not working as HIDE ATAP needs to be enabled.

There are a few programs that can disable and enable this feature and Clone CD is one and the other is Alcohol…

lets use alcohol as CloneCD is the most blacklisted program out there.

eject farcry cdr from yoru drives and remember you only need the game to ACTIVATE and WORK so you dont need to reinstall the game.

ok start alcohol up.

Options/General/Emulation/ Tick only : Ignore Media TYPE.
Untick every other option and under extra emulation Untick All .

next Minimize Alcohol and eject your drives and try again.
if it does not work this time then im unshure of what your doing wrong or it could be just the hardware you have.

your Pioneer DVDRW and OptoRite 48x16x48x CDRW may not be up to the task of reading.

if its going to work for you it would most likely work on the Optorite cdrw drive as i think its a rebagaged liteon drive.

again sorry for the problems your getting and keep at it.

GOODLUCK.

WHOO HOO!! U dahh man… i took the game out of the DVD rom and put it in the CDrw drive and it WORKED LIKE A CHARM! Fantastic… god bless u. Now… i dont have to worry about scratching up my disk… i can put the original up for safe keepin. Thanks soo much. I do have one other fast question tho. Why do i have to use the same method for Disk 3? Is it the only other disk that has protection on it? For the others i can simply just use clonecd and create a image and burn i hope. Sorry… i didnt realize that my DVDROM drive being a DVDRW drive would matter. Didnt know… but hey… its kewl… as long as i have it in my CDRW drive it starts right up. Again… thanks soo much… laterz.

Didnt i tell you it would work :stuck_out_tongue:
Im glad i could help, this is the method i use for all safedisk 2/3 protections and it works flawlessly

as long as you have a liteon or plex or liteon dvdrom or rebagaged liteon it will work 99% of the time.

as for other drives im unfimilure with them as i have not used them persionaly.

any game that has protection on there cdr will be there for a reason. 1 being its not going to be there just for show.
so its best to back that disk up the same way you did the PLAY disk. as its mostly something to do with when the game is installed and required the protection there for its a must to use the same method.

just one other thing for your persional enjoyment. :slight_smile:
you dont need to enable HIDE ATAP or Hide Media Type if you have a DVDROM drive if you have have any money spare i know most of us dont have that lol buy yourself a LITEON 166-S DVDROM as it can cut though safedisk v2/3 like lightning with out any form of hideing the media type. you just pop it in and play :slight_smile:

i hope this helps. and congrats there is not meny people that can play the latest safedisk v3 backups with some form of emulation :slight_smile:

you basicly have that game 1/1 backed up all you need now is a great DVDROM as posted above i recommend this drive 100% and you shouldnt have any more worrys at all with safedisk games. :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

This didn’t work for me. The image works, but when burned to CD it fails with or without ignore media type. Why do this on CD1 and CD3? CD1 is all that is required for Far Cry isn’t it?

Lite-on LTC-48161H CDRW/DVD Combo
CloneCD 4322
Alcohol 120 148.1222

I just archive the working image in a split (won’t fit on 1 CD) SFX RAR file then burn that plus my extra stuff like patches to CD. :smiley:

it most likely didnt work for you becuse you have a problematic Safedisk v3 KILLER Drive.

if the image works then when you burn back it should work
and it most definitly should work with ignore media type enabled

but im unfimilure about COMBI Drives are you shure your drive can burn back the latest safedisk v3 ???

i dont think it can … then again i have not owned a combi drive before.

im only fimilure with 32x 48x 52x liteon standard drives and liteon DVDROM readers and NEC and PIONEER DVDRW drives.

Goodluck but i dont think that combi will burn back safedisk 3 without emulation. :rolleyes:

if you have done a safedisk v3 game before and worked without emulation then its probably becuse it was a old version of safedisk v3. the latest versions are getting more complicated.

I have attached my burner log, i used the method for Splinter Cell : Pandora Tomorrow CD3.

This method didnt work for me - SC:PT just comes up with the loading screen but fails to go any further.

I have LG 4480b - is this a SD killer?

Thankz

merther02

it may just be your hardware is incompatible with the latest safedisk v3++ games.

it may have saled through safedisk v2+ but as you know all protection is getting trickyr.

the method posted above is what i have always used for Safedisk
and up to the latest Safedisk release i can back them up and they work perfectly.

for my DVDROM it works just placeing it in and off we go.
with DVDRW/CDRW i have to enable hide Media Type to get the game to pass the CP check.

hope this helps.


#13

I didn’t see why you need to do the backup/clone of CD3 ?

think of it this way and i dont understand why so meny people ask the same questions.

if the protection is there and detected by protection scanning software then that means the Games Companys put them there for a reason.

could be FADE PROTECTION or anything so if its not exactly backed up right then the game may mess up during play.

you realy dont want that to happen do you. i dont.

so finaly i hope this makes things more clear. :slight_smile:

final note* and this is what i would do.
if you have a game with 14cd`s and 5 of them have protection and only 1 required to play the game.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ? lol :bigsmile: :bigsmile:


#15

For Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow CD3 is the play disk, CD1 is the install disk.

At a guess I would say there is a protection check at install time which won’t allow you to install the game unless it is passed. Insert CD3 to play…


#16

Hi Virus2k,
A little question, what burners did you use to test this method? As far as I read LG drives aren’t good anymore so if you can report us what burners you have I think it would be helpful.


#17

In terms of backing up discs that have safedisc 2.0 or higher… yes you need a drive that can copy and burn the image perfectly but unless you have a regular cd-rom youll have to use the hide atip when you play from any optical drive that is a burner because burners when they read a disc read the ATIP info part of the disc but regular cd-roms/dvd-roms won’t so a successful working copy would work in a regular, non-burner drive (assuming that your drive can successfully back up safe disc games). I’m sure you all knew that though but i thought id post it just in case =)

In terms of instlaling the game… unless there are safedisc files on cd1 there is no need to make an image of that disk since installing it usually does not have any protection checks. it is just when you run the game. although i havent seen what cd1 of far cry looks like.

===========================

Place the Play Disk in your DVDROM remember to Disable Auto Play before hand.

Start CloneCD up.

1: Read to Image : Choose your DVDROM
2: Right Click on the Protected Game Icon Click Edit

Under Data Read Settings
Tick Read Subchannel Data From Data Tracks
and
Regenerate Data Sectors. (Only Tick if you have a 2.0+ghz CPU.)

next:

Under Audio Read Settings
Read Speed Audio : 16x MAX or 8x BEST
Audio Extraction : GOOD (Slow)
Tick Read SubChannel Data From Audio Tracks
Untick Only Read The First Session

Next:

Under Error Handleing Settings
Fast Error SKip Settings (ON)
Untick Abort On Read Error
Untick Don`t Report Read Errors
Tick Intelligent Bad Sector Scanner
Set (50) as the Sector Skip

Ok now click ok and then double click Protected Game Icon again To proceed.

Make a folder on your desktop called Farcry_CD3_SafediskV3
tick create cue Sheet and browse to the folder you created on your desktop name the image Farcry_cd3.CCD then click ok

now it should take anywhere from 8-15 minutes to create the image during this process do not touch the computer or have anything running in the background.

=================================

Once complete proceed to the next step.

-=IMAGE BURNING INSTRUCTIONS=-

Start Alcohol Up
Click Image Burn Wizard.
Browse to the CloneCD`d Farcry CD3 Image you Created with CloneCD then click on the image click ok and then click NEXT

Now Select the Safedisk v2/3 Profile

Set maximum Speed @ 8x
Untick By Pass EFM Error
Method RAW DAO
Click Start

Remember to have nothing running in the background and also dont use the PC as before dueing BURNING.

now when complete DELETE / UNINSTALL CloneCD

now Reboot System and try the game in your DVDROM it should work if it does not work Try your Burners As Readers With HIDE ATAP Enabled.

The Game Should Start Up Perfectly as it DID for me.

GOODLUCK. [/B]

First of all, tell you that when I read this post I had many doubts if it really worked because I had tried all type of methods and best of all was with Blindwrite.

My test devices were and ultraplex 40x to read with clonecd at 4x with the correspondent options you said and a plexwriter 8220( same EFM capabilities than a classical plex8/20) to write with last Alcohol 120% version at 8x and without EFM correction of course.

The game was Crazy taxi 3 with Safedisk 3.15 and SC2: PT SD3.20

I enabled at alcohol 120% hide atip tip (ignore type of medium) in order to become my cd-recorders in simple cd-roms.

The results were very good. The backups work in all my drives on the list except on my LG GSA-4040B that takes a bit to load and sometimes works and others not.

Very good work with Virus2K about this method to backup newest Safedisk versions.
Now I will try with my ASUS 5224a cd-recorder, LG GSA-4040B dvdrecorder and Aopen CRW-5232 cd-recorder but I continue thinking that the results will be better on my old plexwriters as happened with my blindwrite method. Plexwriters have something special to write weak sectors of safedisk that the rest of cd-recorders can not. (it is only my opinion hehe)

Regards to all people of forum

Start CloneCD up…

Thnx…it worked perfectly for me.

Lite-On 52327S latest firmware.

Running on a JLMS XJ-HD166s (liteon rebadged)…latest firmware.

It seems to be a perfect 1 on 1 copy, so I have to ask if anyone tried to backup from the backup using the same method and if it works?

Im going to give it a try and Ill post my finds…thanks again Virus2k!
:bow:

UPDATE:
Didn’t work. :Z …I wonder if now Nero can copy it…lol.:wink:
