Question Throne Of Darkness Query

sponsored links

 
Can any one help me with this.

I’ve just bought ‘Throne Of Darkness’ and I intend to make a back-up copy for safety reasons. How can I back this game up? I know there must be some sort of protection on it, so how do I do it?

Thanks

Can't quite remember, but I think that it used Securom.. Either that or it wasn't protected.. Anyway I backed it up just fine using Clone CD...

You might want to use something like Clony to detect the protection... I will have a look at my copy when I get home and see what protection was used... But if you copy it with read audio and data subchannels enabled then it should be fine.

Hi Celtic Druid

Thanks for the reply.

I’ve just downloaded and installed Clony XL. According to Clony it’s protected by Securom ‘New’ (whatever that is). Will I still be able to make a safe copy using CloneCD? If so, what setting (if any) should I enable/disable.

Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Angry That didn't work!

I’ve just tried to copy disk 1 using CloneCD. The backup CD was blank!

I read from both sunchannels and enabled ‘Fast Error Skip’. On writing, I enabled ‘Buffer Underrun Protection’ and ‘Always Close Last Session’. Read and write speed was 4x. Write mode was RAW DAO.

What did I do wrong?

That's a weird one... I doubt that it has anything to do with the setting that you used though, they seem fine, although I always just read and write at max speed. Does Clone CD usually work for you??

Hi Celtic Druid,

It’s okay. I just made a successful backup of TOD. I used the setting as stated, all I did was change the media. My first attempt was onto a CDRW (just in case it didn’t work). I then burnt onto a Datasafe disk and that was fine.

I always thought that CDR and CDRW disks were the same! I didn’t realise it made that much of a difference.

Disk 2 of TOD isn’t protected. I just copied all the files to my hard drive and then used Roxio 5 to do the necessary.

Thanks for the help
