Hi all. Like a lot of us, I would rather store and play as many of my games as possible on my retro pc's hard drive (it's actually just an sd card) to preserve discs and cd drives. So I began backing up my physical discs and, following this video from philscomputerlab: https://youtu.be/gvJuPWutxhc tried to make a Shadow Warrior installation CD.
Well, I succeeded. I used the GAME.GOG and GAME.DAT as he said to create a working CD, complete with CD audio (I had to make it a mixed mode CD with Infrarecorder. Tested it in my machine and it was great.
Trying to make a proper disc image of this game has proven difficult. I can make a bin and cue out of the disc, but when loaded into Daemon tools in the Windows 98 machine, only the game loads, and not that awesome Shadow Warrior soundtrack. I have tried reinstalling from the new image, checking to make sure the virtual CD volume was on, making sure the audio tracks were proper wav files, and so many other things that I really can't remember it all.
Does anyone have a clue what is going on here? I'm feel sure it has something to do with getting Daemon tools to load the audio, because I popped in my CD-RW of the game with Windows 98 defaulting to the virtual D: drive, but when it didn't detect the music, it swapped to the physical disc in E:!
Is it even possible to get a disc image to act as a mixed mode cd?
