-------------

Multidisk games:

Of course this is a basic overview of multi disk games...

So you have several options for menus..

DreamON (uses wince so you need to use bincon on main bin), ODCM, PW, DreamPassport, SDK

Bincon:

Code: Select all

bincon 0WINCEOS.BIN 1WINCEOS.BIN
Delete 0WINCEOS.BIN
Rename 1WINCEOS.BIN 0WINCEOS.BIN


All of the multi disk menus are based off ginsu (except PW? I don't remember..)

GInsu ini:

Code: Select all

[GINSU]
Ginsu.FirstApp                  = MANIFEST

Ginsu.DefaultApp                = MANIFEST
#Ginsu.DefaultApp                = GINRESET

Ginsu.XferExecutable            = \GINXFER.BIN

[MANIFEST]
Ginsu.Path                      = \
Ginsu.Command                   = \MANIFEST.BIN

[GINRESET]
Ginsu.Path                      = \
Ginsu.Command                   = \GINRESET.BIN

[SAMPLE]
Ginsu.Path                      = \SAMPLE
Ginsu.Command                   = \SAMPLE\SAMPLE.BIN
Manifest.Name                   = "SAMPLE"


Each game will need to have the binaries hacked to the correct LBA.
Typically either 11702 or 45000.
Depending if there is cdda or not...
+166 to LBA if some other bs

Code: Select all

In hex editor find CD001 go 8 spots over from left use 5c 2e for 11702, use 6e b0 for 45000


The main bin for the menu you choose will also need to be hacked to the correct LBA and then binhacked with the IP.BIN

BINHACK:

Code: Select all

Enter name of binary = 1st_read.bin (or whatever the name of the main.bin is)
Enter name of bootsector = ip.bin
Enter msinfo value = (LBA)


Sample 11702 script for cdrecord/mkisofs:

Code: Select all

mkisofs -C 0,11702 -V SAMPLE -G ip.bin -l -hide 0.0 -o data.iso data
cdi4dc data.iso DATA.cdi
del data.iso


If you need to use 45000 LBA, use familyguy's selfboot pack.

Some games will need to have .sfd downsampled or other mods etc. in order to fit cd-r.
Some games might have protections.

AkuShadow, are you trying to make a multi-game CD of homebrew games or commercial games? If homebrew, then you can simply make a CD using https://web.archive.org/web/20070113182 ... rs/sbiffy/

maybe we can make a multi game cdi for all of the 20+ online multiplayer games? GDemu allows for a 4gb CDI
