Why is the ESR patcher not working for some games?
Why is the ESR patcher not working for some games? –
Usually, before I burn my backups, I check the ISO that the ESR patcher made to ensure it has the DVD-like directory (with the audio-ts and video-ts.) The first game that I burnt (Starwars Battle Front 2) was scanned in (by using Imgburn) was recognized, after a few attempts successfully patched (and contains the seporate directory), and (due to my windows inability to recognise blank discs) was burnt on a mac. The game played successfully However, the next few times that I ripped of games (SSX Tricky on tour and Kingdom Hearts 2) were ripped on my mac (by using the make-hybrid terminal command), because my computer CD reader was messed up. however, when I tried to patch them, the ESR-Patcher failed to create the other directory with the Audio_TS and Video_TS (the ISO is read-write.) Next, to ensure that it was not patched, I opened up the ESR patcher in VMware, and attempted to patch, and unpatch the ISO again. Unfortunately, it did not recognize tat the ISO was patched. Hoping that it would still work, although it was not patched, I burnt both DVD's and tried to play them. After the first unsucsessful attempt, I used ulauncher to open up my external hard drive, to run the older Version of ESR (the one with the gui) to attempt to see if ESR could read it, and it stated that there was an unknown media in the drive. I also attempted to use Cogswap (which suscsessfully read the first game, starwars battlefront 2.) To my dismay, it failed to read the backups of Kingdom Hearts 2 and SSX tricky on tour. Really the only backup that I need is the Kingdom hearts 2, because its circular scratches has caused it to crash when I enter into the next areas (which I cannot avoid.) therefore, I really don't care about performance. Is there a way that I can manually add the other directory with the dummy files, or if not some other way that I can launch those backups.
What error showing up when You try patch *.iso? Do You have UDF table in this image, maybe You dumped only ISO9660?
Thanks for the fast response. when I patch the iso, it states that it sucsessfully patched it, however, when I go to un-patch it, it states that it is not patched (so it has not made any changes to the ISO.) Also I do not think that there is a UDF table.
Every valid PS2 DVD image has IS09660+UDFv1.2. If you don't have UDF table, ESR DP cannot do anything but in this case you would got an error about missing UDF. So... it's strange. For Windows there's really hande app called ISO Buster which could list all fs on optical media/disc image. Check it.
What chmod is set on this *.iso? I never had a OS X but somewhere should be a terminal, and should be a tool for this (maybe it's named the same as any other *nix systems).
