Default weird gameselector problem.....

sponsored links

Just wondering if anyone can help figure out whats going on here. I'm using dvd-rw's to make a few compilation discs of my games. The problem is that most of them give me a 'your disc is dirty' error when trying to load the game. The weird thing is that if I don't use the game selector and just load a single game to the dvd-rw (the same dvd-rw that gives me the dirty disc error) the game plays perfectly. Could this have something to do with the game not residing in the top level directory of this disc? It could also be that I'm using relatively cheap dvd-rw's, but if I burn it as a single game I've never had the dirty disc error. Anyway, it's really not that important I was just curious if perhaps there were some limitations to the way in which the gameselector lauches xbe files similar to how some games need to be patched to run correctly from the hard drive?

Some games needs or checks the original TOC from the disk, so if you put other files (i.e. games) it wouldn't boot. I had similler problem with 'House of Dead 3' it about 900mb and i tried to put MotoGP on the same disk, MotoGP booted perfectly but HOD3 hung on the loading screen...

Damn. so is there no way to tell which games check the toc? without having to burn and hope for the best.

I made a 5 multi yesterday, and as above only 1 game worked, all the others hung on the loading screen too.

The thing I don't understand is why any of these games work when running from the hard drive. If it works from the hard drive (say in e:/games/pacman) it should work with the game selector (d:/pacman), but that doesn't appear to be the case.
