Ripping BLEEM?

Post#1 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:47 pm

What's bothered me for a long time is there's never been a real working BLEEM CDI release, there is one on TheISOZone, but this doesn't really boot for anybody. Even Atreyu187 who made the release says, it works for some people, and for others it doesn't. depends on the GD-ROM drive

Having spoken to a few old CDI release scene people, there was shenanigans with the old Echelon people making intentionally cryptic documentation (or so they say), and this caused internet drama

I'm sure that if we had a rip of BLEEM, we could get a working CDI release, or even SDISO

If anybody has a legit BLEEM Metal Gear Solid disc, and a BBA, please reply so we can rip it and solve this issue

I'm a bit confused. Are you talking about the three retail bleem discs that got cracked by someone at dc-swat in 2009, or so? Actually I've never run into any problems burning them with DiscJuggler 4.1

yes the retail discs, preferably metal gear solid

i want to figure out how to rip the files off the disc and try getting a real CDI release for it. the current one on TheISOZone doesnt work for a large portion of people

theres only a few ways the dreamcast can launch a binary, so its kind of baffling how a real working BLEEM CDI hasnt been figured out

i'll try to extract it and see what happens
