Mr Drillcast

Post#1 » Wed Jan 05, 2011 10:16 am

Hi guys and girls.

I am sorry to bother your fun but I have a question about my DC,
I have a handful of burnt game copies that work fine ( 5 xD )
but Mr Driller dcres repack will not load up at all. It just goes to the
bios screen , yet the same CD I burnt works fine with Chankast.

Why would alot of games work but not this one? I'm guessing just a laser problem or something?

Sorry If I do wrong
Thanks for any advice . peace.

Mr. Driller only has ~9MB of game files in the second session. You see, TuxTheWise dummied the game so the second session (= the game) is at the very outside of the disc, and sadly some lasers have problems recognizing such a small session and refuse to boot. If I recall correctly, even my laser needed a few tries to read the Mr. Driller DCRES repack. :?

Unfortunately, the only way around that would be to manually remake the release yourself with less CDDA dummying and dummying the second session a bit. Well, it's easier than it sounds :lol:
For Great Justice!
