I am trying to test Dance Factory with OPL, but I am having troubles even copying it on the IDE HDD or USB HDD.
The CD is a Mixed one (audio+data):
Size: 318.558.208 bytes
Time: 34:35:71 (MM:SS:FF)
Session 1... (LBA: 0 - 155545)
-> Track 01 (Mode 2, Form 1, LBA: 0 - 66619)
-> Track 02 (Audio, 03:08:36, LBA: 66620 - 80755)
-> Track 03 (Audio, 03:24:52, LBA: 80756 - 96107)
-> Track 04 (Audio, 03:36:71, LBA: 96108 - 112378)
-> Track 05 (Audio, 06:10:57, LBA: 112379 - 140185)
-> Track 06 (Audio, 03:24:60, LBA: 140186 - 155545)
-> LeadOut (LBA: 155546)
-> Track 01 (LTSA: 0, TS: 66620, LRA: 0)
-> Track 02 (LTSA: 66620, TS: 14136, LRA: 0)
-> Track 03 (LTSA: 80756, TS: 15352, LRA: 0)
-> Track 04 (LTSA: 96108, TS: 16271, LRA: 0)
-> Track 05 (LTSA: 112379, TS: 27807, LRA: 0)
-> Track 06 (LTSA: 140186, TS: 15360, LRA: 0)
-With HDL_Dump GUI v1.5 -> internal HDD:
If I select "Optical Drive" to copy from the original game, I get this message "00000000 (0): La operación se ha completado correctamente." (Operation has been successfully completed).
What operation?? Fields "game name", "startup file" and "size" remains in blank, so I can't install the game.
If I first create an image cd (since it's mixed, must be nrg or bin/cue format, not ISO) and then select it with source/ISO file, program simply crashes...
If I create an ISO file, audio tracks get lost, but the game can now be installed without problems. Although OPL loads it, the game shows no songs to play (the demo songs).
-With USBUtil 2.0 -> USB HDD
Game can be installed from the original CD, but OPL doesn't load it.
Dance factory works this way: once the game is loaded, you can insert in the cd player any normal audio cd, and the game creates the dance steps. The game itself includes 5 audio songs (tracks 02 to 06).
My intention was at first to modify the game by adding more songs, so there is no need to switch CDs (both the original game and the audio cds are quite scratched now thanks to my sister), and then install it to either the internal HDD or the USB HDD, but I can't even get the unmodified game to work properly...
Any suggestions about what could I try next?
