I finally decided to get into the backup game, when my dog trashed one of my CDs (r.i.p. rune! :() Anyway, I was playing around with the latest CloneCD & clony XXL, and was backing up my Freedom Force CD, and I got just a few questions I hope someone can answer.
Here is what I know so far (oh, using a liteone 32x12x40)
Move to Canada (or use util) to disable AWS,
After reading the CD, I dumped it out to a CDRW, and using default gamecd settings, or using clonyxxl settings, I am able to run game if the CD ATIP check is disabled ONLY (I think it is called hide media).
Anyway, am I correct in stating that there is no way to get around the SD 2.5 (2.6?) ATIP check besides using that util OR playing the game on a normal CDrom drive?
Or, am I missing something in making a 1:1 pure backup?
