projects that i need help with

Post#1 » Wed Apr 01, 2020 3:01 pm

this has a small chance of ever happening...
here is a list of things that i need some help with.
some1?

1. cracked versions of dc-x, dc-ie, gameshark, codebreaker (dc-x and dc-ie more than likely are encrypted... gs and cb will load but show messed up graphics)
2. a few of belokk isos protections removed to allow ripping data (im thinking the datel stuff might need more than just a .bin?)
3. cracked versions of each bleem beta color <-- LOL
4. how the hell to get any 2k series dc game to boot? (the 1st read is not the main bin, even if you skip loading it and try load main bin file its no go..the lba cant be edited b/c main bin is encrypted..only way to load game would be to set the lba at same as gd, or the lba echelon used or whatever group originally ripped it kalisto? idk)

i know a few ppl out there in dc community that can do this type of stuff.
if you don't want to help that is fine.
but maybe you could respond with a hint or something?

The knowledge required is so high ^^

-> I'm just learning those games use streaming read with partially sectors read. It's probably why it's so difficult to work on.

As fafadou said the knowledge required is high.
Very few can reverse engineer.
Only a handful of ppl have those skills.

I stated in the first post.

Can you give an example of how this works?
What other dreamcast games use this method?
Also I still think that nfl2k series games use blowfish encryption simply based on the file named BLOWFISH.BIN LOL

          `- Proudly Presents:



          Game.....: NFL 2K (C) Sega Sports / Visual Concepts!



          Origin...: USA - NTSC           -  Filename.....: E-NFL2K.001

          Released.: December 26th, 2000  -  Format.......: DiscJuggler (CDI)

          Platform.: Sega Dreamcast (DC)  -  CD(s)........: 1

          CD1 Info.: 25 RARS / 74 MINS    -  Ripped.......: See Release Notes



        - --- Release Notes ------------------------------------------------>



        Right before the end of millenium, ECHELON has cracked for your

        pleasure the games that all American's have been awaiting since

        the beginning of the Dreamcast scene! Yes baby! After 6 months

        of on and off work we give you NBA2K, NFL2K, NBA2K1, and NFL2K1.

        We hope you all had a nice Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa, enjoy

        these games before the start of the new millenium & year!



        Greetings to our friends at Kalisto Playstation for helping us

        with the cracks! These releases would not be possible without

        them, Thanks!



        The commentary and play by play announcing has been downsampled

        in this release and the intro FMV has been downsampled.



        Also, please take note that this isn't your standard format for

        a self-booting image. Quite a few people may have problems

        burning these games. We have devised a few solutions for those

        that may have problems with DiscJuggler:



        A) Self-Boot Solution



        1. Run CDIRIP on the DiscJuggler image with the flags /iso and

           /full.

     

        2. Goto CDRWIN's Tools Menu, Select Record ISO9660 Image. Choose

           the 1st Session as your ISO image, select the options:

           CDROM-XA, MODE2, Open New Session, Finalize Close/Session.

       

        3. Burn this session off at your desired speed.



        4. Goto CDRWIN's Tools Menu, Select Record ISO9660 Image. Choose

           the 2nd Session as your ISO image, select the options:

           CDROM-XA, MODE2, Finalize/Close Session.



        B) CD-Loader Solution



        1. Run CDIRIP on the DiscJuggler image with the flags /iso and

           /full.



        2. Goto CDRWIN's Tools Menu, Select Record ISO9660 Image, Choose

           the 1st Session as your ISO image, Select the options:

           CDROM, MODE1, and Finalize/Close Session.



        3. Burn it off and load up in your CD-Loader.



        Alternate method: Use CDmage and extract all files from the

        1st session, then master them with your favorite data mastering

        program as MODE1.



        Of course if you have a decent burner that fully supports

        DiscJuggler, you don't have to worry about any of the above, and

        you can just burn off the self-booting DiscJuggler image.



        Other Notes:



        - NFL 2K & NBA 2K do not work with RGB cables, the same problem

          is present on the original and we were unable to find a fix

          for it. If anyone else wants to fix these, be our guest.

         

        - NFL 2K1 & NBA 2K1 work fine on RGB cables, and all of these

          games work fine with a VGA Box.

     

        - NBA 2K1 & NFL 2K1 support online play through SegaNet and this

          feature has been tested in our releases.



        - Due to the audio being downsampled, you might want to goto the

          options menu and turn up the volume settings before starting

          a game.



        There can only be one! Many warriors tried and only one suceeded:



        E    -    C    -    H    -    E    -    L    -    O    -    N    !



        - --- Game Information And Features -------------------------------->



        PASS ME THE CONSOLE.



        Why watch the game on TV when you can be right there on the turf,

        delivering bullet passes and bone-crushing tackles along side the

        pros? Sega Dreamcast now gives you NFL-approved 3D football,

        created with playbooks designed by seasoned coaches and play-calling

        tendencies of real NFL teams. Over 1,300 motion-captured moves

        were shot using pro players, referees and stuntmen to create the

        most heart-stopping, ultra-realistic sports gameplay ever made.

        When you tackle the tight end, he doesn't just fall over. He

        responds to the direction and force of the tackle, and even

        stumbles if your aim falls short. You'll even get rained on or

        shouted at by the animated crowd, adding to the incredible detail

        and momentum of the game. Time to put those other football games

        out to pasture. Dreamcast scores.



        Game Features:



        - 1,300+ motion-captured character animations for the most realistic

          looking football game ever created.



        - True 3D collisions with complex point-based physics modeling.



        - High-resolution, 60 frames per second graphics engine for the most

          detailed characters to date.



        - Real-time weather which dramatically affects gameplay.



        - All 32 stadiums accurately modeled in true 3D.



        - Complete and accurate game and season statistics to satisfy the

          most hardcore fan.



        - Unprecedented level of detail in all aspects of the game: from the

          crowd leaving during a blowout, to characters on the sideline

          scattering as a player runs out of bounds.



        - --- Group News --------------------------------------------------->

     

        All the stupid speculators thought that these games were too big to

        fit on a normal CD. But it seems that they ALL fit on normal CDs

        and quite easily? Hmm, Maybe you dumbfucks shouldn't comment on

        things until you can view things on GD-ROM's other than copyright

        text files. You're always wrong.

      `- Proudly Presents:

      Game.....: NBA 2K1 Fix (C) Sega Sports / Visual Concepts

      Origin...: USA - NTSC           -  Filename.....: E-NB2K1F.ZIP
      Released.: December 28th, 2000  -  Format.......: Files & Instructions
      Platform.: Sega Dreamcast (DC)  -  CD(s)........: -
      CD1 Info.: 1 ZIP                -  Ripped.......: -

    - --- Release Notes ------------------------------------------------>

    It seems that 5 files were missing off our final pack of NBA 2K1.
    How they got lost is still a mystery to us, but we'd have to guess
    that the <sarcasm> Great Windows Operating System and superior
    FAT32 filesystem </sarcasm> is to blame for it. When dealing with
    2,000+ files stuff like this does happen. The result for the enduser
    was being unable to play as the Charlotte Hornets team. Once these
    files are placed on the disc, you can play as the Hornets. Follow
    these detailed fix instructions to fixup your copy:

    1. Download CDIRIP (http://cdirip.freeyellow.com).

    2. Run cdirip.exe /iso /full e-nba2k1.cdi on a DiscJuggler image of
       the game, where e-nba2k1.cdi is the image name.

    3. Make a directory on your hard disk (X:), X:\NBA2K1.

    4. Take the 1st Session ISO image that CDIRIP generated and open it
       in any program that can extract data files from an ISO. Extract
       all of the data to X:\NBA2K1.

       Alternately you can copy all of the files from a burned NBA2K1
       CD-ROM to your hard disk for this step.
 
    5. UnZIP the files that are contained in this ZIP. They are:

       - PLAYS020.PBA
       - PLAYER002A.IFF
       - BACK025.IFF
       - ARENA502.IFF
       - 748UNIFA.VCT
 
    6. - Place PLAYS020.PBA into the X:\NBA2K1\PLAYS directory.
       - Place PLAYER002A.IFF into the X:\NBA2K1\DATA directory.
       - Place BACK025.IFF into the X:\NBA2K1\DATA directory.
       - Place ARENA502.IFF into the X:\NBA2K1\INGAME directory.
       - Place 748UNIFA.VCT into the X:\NBA2K1\PLAYER\HISTORICAL directory.
   
    7. Find yourself MKISOFS.EXE from the self-boot kit, or obtain it
       from a friend if you have one.

    8. Run: mkisofs -C 0,0 -l -V NBA2K1_ECHELON -o session1.iso NBA2K1
 
       Note: NBA2K1 at the end of this command line is your directory
             with all data files, so you should probably run this
             command from the root of your X: drive.

    9. Goto CDRWIN Tools -> Record ISO9660 Image. Pick X:\session1.iso
       for your ISO image. Click the option Open New Session, and make
       sure Finalize/Close Session and Write Postgap are also checked.
       Open the dropdown menus and choose CDROM-XA and MODE2. Now, burn
       this image at your desired speed.

       Side Note: If you have problems with self-boot games and want to
       use a CD Loader, then simply leave Open New Session unchecked and
       do not follow any other instructions given in this fix tutorial.

   10. Goto CDRWIN Tools -> Record ISO9660 Image. Find the 2nd Session
       .ISO file that you generated from CDIRIP at the beginning of
       this tutorial. Use this as your ISO file. Goto the dropdown
       menus and select CDROM-XA and MODE2. Also make sure the
       Finalize/Close Session and Write Postgap options are checked.
       And finally, make sure that the Open New Session option is
       NOT checked, and burn this off at your desired speed.

   11. You now have a 100% working NBA2K1. Our apologies for the mistake.

    - --- Group News --------------------------------------------------->

    Note to dumbfucks out there whole like to whine a lot:

    Would you rather we:

    A. Focus on obtaining and releasing the newest games, cracking
       their protections, and fitting them on a CD perfectly.

    Or..

    B. Should we sit around on our couches and playtest games for
       a week or two and make sure that every single little option
       works?

    There's only 24 hours in a day, and we can't change that. We hope
    that people with brains can understand that we only have time for
    one of these options.

ty deluxux.
so it was echelon who ripped the 2k series sports games.
i have yet to figure out what the hell they did to make them boot.
when comparing the echelon version with the gd rom files.
as far as i can tell i don't see any modifications of the main bin files which is odd.
i might look at it again sometime?
maybe they used the same lba as the gd rom files?
i guess that i will need to compare all the damn files and see what all they had to mod.
LOL who the hell knows

Yeah, I realised that.
Reverse engineering and hacking stuff like that can be tough.

ya, when all i can do is use a hex editor and a telecaster... dreaming up scenarios where these types of things are possible becomes a daily occurrence. but, then again i always thought i would own a pink cadillac by now. oh well.
