I recently purchased the game “Republic: The Revolution” and wanted to make a backup copy of it with my Plextor Premium V1.05. A quick ClonyXXL scan detected SecuROM 4.84 in the main executable.
Yesterday I installed BW5 and BW5Tweaker and rebooted (for my backup I have used kalas’ backup guide). I read the image with the Plextor at 8x and then tried to write it. I wanted to use a CD-RW to do the test, but the VariRate feature didn’t support it. So I tried the TwinPeak method. But I got the following error:
Twinpeak method requires topology information, but topology missing. Write aborted.
… although kalas’ guide explicitly tells: “Read topology never extract checked” (= check “never extract topology”) and also tells you can use TwinPeak method or VariRate without it.
I re-read the image with topology and burned it to a CD-RW at 8x with the Twinpeak method. Result: backup doesn’t work. Takes a while to load but game doesn’t start. What did I do wrong ?
