Thanks for the info…
That brings up another question then…
I have used CloneCD to make working images of MOHAA and MOHAAS. I’ve tested the images by doing an installtion and running the games after mounting them to a virtual drive either in CloneCD or Alcohol 120%. Works great this way, no problems.
However, after burning the image to CD using either programs SafeDisk2 (Alcohol) or SafeDisk 2.51 (CloneCD) profile, I end up with strange results… let me explain.
Burn game image to CD with no problems. Install game with no problems. Enter game with no problems. Upon entering game and configuring controls I notice that the color scheme to select controls is not right. Black and very faint yellow, difficult to read. When I actually try to play a mission the graphics are all messed up. Again, black and faint yellow cubes with no actual color texture. You’re thinking video drivers right? …nope…read on.
Ok, so uninstall and completely remove any trace of the game. Re-install from original game CD’s. Game loads and plays perfectly, no problems with texturing. If I try to start the game using the CD I burned after installing from the original CD I get a message saying to please insert the game CD into the CD drive. Huh? Isn’t the image I burned the same as the original at this point?
So, my question becomes, what exactly do I need to do in order to burn these working images correctly onto a CD so I can have working copies I can both install and play the game from?
What settings are vital considering the drive I am using to burn TDK 5200B?
Do I or do I not need AWS?
Is there possibly another firmware that will work with my drive that is better at burning SafeDisk images?
