Ok I have blindwrite 4.2.5 with the pattin couffin engine and Daemon tools 3.29. I made a image ofthe original Hitman 2 disc which has secrom 4.23 using the recommended methods at only 1x speed to ensure quality. I loaded the image in d-tools and when I click play the CD icon spins for a sec like its loading it and then does nothing. I used the bwa builder as well at 1x speed and allowed it to set automatic sectors. Any ideas?
Download the BWA here and use that.
If you can’t produce a working backup with Blindwrite, then you may want to use the CloneCD/Twinpeak method outlined here.
Thanks man, Hitman loaded up perfectly! Although I have to ask, what am I doing wrong that I cannot create a proper 1:1? I have a Lite-On 48x24x48 CDRW with the latest firmware.
Congrats on the success, Alex T.
As far as what you did wrong…I’m not sure.
Did you follow the steps mentioned here closely?
If you did, then I don’t know what to tell you. Making BWA files isn’t exactly perfected yet…
There is a BWA editing tool floating around that works quite well though. You may want to give it a try if you can’t produce a working BWA on your own.
Oh, and just for your information, a 1:1 of SecuROM 4.8 games isn’t possible, and it won’t ever be possible.
A stand-alone backup is completely possible…but it isn’t a 1:1.
Some drivers are not able to make working backup of Securom becouse they cant make very good bwa file
nevermind wrong place, sorry
