Out of every title I've backed up, only one REFUSES to be played.
I bought the game new today and ripped my disc as soon as I got home (to ensure I had a scratch-less rip) and burned it, loaded in SM 3.6, and it gets stuck on the loading screen. I read up an found out what to do to fix it. THIS is where the real problems began.
Okay, so I've been using the guide on afterdawn forums (PS2 Sonic Heroes Swap Magic fix guide - AfterDawn: Forums) to fix the TOC of sonic heroes PS2 by replacing the big-ass dummy.bin in the game with a tiny one, but I've run into a problem with the sony cdvdgen program that is required to fix it.
it won't install.
I'm trying to run the installer in windows 7, but every time I try it tells me it's missing a nonexistent language file (it doesn't actually USE the language config that's included instead, tho, no no no...)
So I can;t even install it.
The size reduction is a long and laborious task alone without dealing with program malfunctions.
So, can I ask here, is there ANY way to either install CDVD gen or use another program in its place?
thanks to all and any who help.
Also, if mods don't like that I've mentioned getting CDVD gen, the only reason i did is because it's the ONLY DOCUMENTED WAY to fix sonic heroes' TOC. Believe me, I looked high and low for an alternative.
Thank you all.
