Re: Help unpacking GOG setups for Windows98

I just extracted GOG's Terminal Velocity with https://constexpr.org/innoextract (on Linux) and it worked perfectly fine. I have yet to encounter a GOG installer I couldn't extract with it. The innoextract tool also has a "--gog" option that extracts *.bin files with unrar automatically. It also …

Re: Help unpacking GOG setups for Windows98

Evidently people do it for different reasons and even specific games, which warranted a tutorial by Phil. Eventually found a workaround that got the job done for every problematic game: install the GOG games normally in a 2000/ME/XP build, copy the installed files and run them on the Win98SE PC. …

Help unpacking GOG setups for Windows98

Hello everyone, I followed Philscomputerlab's GOG tutorial to unpack the setups for use in Win98, but some games don't unpack the game files at all to the "app" folder from the innounp unpacker, only extracting all the other components of the setup. The problematic games for me are Maui Mallard in …

Re: Your method for burning PSX backups?

in Milliways
Interesting about the FMVs, today I found another little trick, I wasn't able to boot 3 different games in a row, trying each one multiple times, like almost 10 times each. Put an original game in, let it past the boot screen, turn off the console and tried the same 3 backups and all worked first …

With respect to choosing a burning speed: It's trial and error depending on your specific drive and discs. Slower is sometimes better, but not always I imagine so, still I'll always be on the lookout for new methods. But for now I think this is one is stable enough, I won't get them to boot 100% of …

Shame there weren't more replies with burning methods, however after experimenting I found a more successful method, here it is for people who have modchips installed that may have similar problems in the future: 1. I bought Verbatim Extra Protection CDs. AZO CDs weren't available for me but the …

If you can't find a way there's other options too, like softmodding: https://www.retrorgb.com/playstation-1-tonyhax-soft-mod-released.html Not as convenient as just loading from a disc, but no need for modchip. There's also ODE's, I hear XStation is good while PSIO can be a bit finicky and the …

I do the same thing I do with all CD media - taiyo yuden blanks burned at 10x in imgburn I think it was something about the way copy protection was implemented on the PS1, it checked for something else than the data when booting the disk that it then passed or not. No idea how to burn perfect …

Your method for burning PSX backups?

in Milliways
Hello everyone, I have had a PSX since 1999 and from about 2015 forwards I've never managed to stabilise in a sure fire burning method. I even tried to get older CDs as opposed to the modern Verbatims, but I was never able to burn backups as successfully as I used to as a kid in the old days, I used …
