Safedisc2 Emulation and Blindwrite?

vbimport

#1

I own CloneCD, Alcohol, Blindwrite, CDRWin, and Nero because they are programs that I use regularly. Just out of curiosity, is Blindwrite Safedisc2 emulation capable like CloneCD and Alcohol120%? If so then how do if find it and or use it?


#2

Yes it is.
When you burn the CD make sure there is a check in the Autoplay box (in Blindwrite Configuration). You will need Blindwrite installed for the emulation to work or you can use the Autoplay client for computers where Blindwrite is not installed.
The Autoplay client can be downloaded from http://www.vso-software.fr/download.htm

This is not true Portmac. I’m now doing safedisk/2 games with blindwrite and don’t need the autoplay client or even the blindwrite software installed to play the game. It might be the way it is on your computer but if definately ain’t on mine. I even got my next door neighbour to try it out to see what would happen. No problems and no software installed. The game was C&C Generals. And here’s the log files from it. It will also play from any drive i use including the 2 dvd- &+ writers i have.

The newer versions of blindwrite won’t allow me to do this. So i stick with the old version. Good Look!

This is not true Portmac.

Sure it is, if the only thing he has in his rig is a cdrw, or any other device that will read the ATIP.


#5

The question was about Emulation.

And Unclebobie why are you using a .BWA for Safedisc.

I have allready told him that using a BWA for Safedisc games does nothing to the backup.
I don’t think he believes me.

I don’t think he believes me.

Gotta be a thing about noogies:bigsmile: :bigsmile:


#8

so can BW do SD2.9?


#9

Yes is the answer to that webcrawler. I did Devastation last night SD 2.9 with BR 4.5.1.69. I Read the disk with a Mitsumi at 4x with the nibble option & burned at 10x to 700mb cdr disc. Also works on cd/rw disc. Installed from the mitsumi and play from all my 7 drives. Still plays with BR un-installed.

The disc was read at 8x with a mitsumi & burned at 10x & Nibble Selected. Installs and plays from all my drives. No problems what so ever.

It also works with 4.5.1.69. The first time i did it with this one i selected EWS. So now i know they both work without it. Also checked out Colin Mcrae Rally 3 Securom 4.8 to see if it would run on a different computer without BR installed and also the PCatip.vxd driver taken out. Coulden’t believe it when it ran the disk first time. Is this right?
