View Full Version : Yes yes, i know this may be a stupid question.

Ok, well. I know that a lot of the games are not self-booting. So i was just wondering, is there a way to make it self-booting? I dont know of any apps or stuff, so could some1 point me in the direction of a good app and a tutorial on how to make it self-boot?

There's always the Utopia boot disc.
Hint: Try to specify your thread by not naming it: Yes yes, i know this may be a stupid question.
Instead name it: How to make a game self-bootable??
This might prevent you from getting stupid answers in return.

Well, with Chanka. I have .cdi and stuff, and i cant burn them (no cd-rs atm). So i cant use the boot disc. And ill change the topic :P

I never tried this:
1. Use a virtual CD rom Drive
2. Run Chankast with an Utopia boot disc image mounted in it.
3. Boot Utopia in Chankast
4. When it asks for the game: Dismount Utopia, and mount the game disc
5. Hit a button.
Remember, I haven't tried this, it's only a theorie thought up at 3.16am ;)

Yep, just be sure you select the virtual drive letter in the configuredrive screen (in chankast)
May 31st, 2004, 02:21
nope cid...utopia stuck after loading the game...

You have to burn them if I remember correctly. I tried to run SmashDC using alcohol 120% and it did now work (It gave me an IO error). After I burned it it loaded up and hanged at a black screen. We only support how to selfboot homebrew games, which you can find a tool at http://www.ngemu.com/dc/dcgenerator.php?action=tools .... otherwise don't ask.

Ok, thankyou. I needed to test some homebrew games/apps to see if they worked :D But is there a way to enable to VGA on some games? Because after i ripped Soul Calibur, in Chanka it said it didnt have the VGA, yet ive seen ppl run it. Is there soemway to enable it?
May 31st, 2004, 04:30
No, I am afraid that if it says that then it is not supported. I tried to run King Of Fighters 99 and 98 and it had the same error..... go figure.
May 31st, 2004, 04:32
Hmmmm, then how the hell do people have soul calibur running on Chanka? id really like to know why some people can run it while other people cant.
May 31st, 2004, 11:37
The people who can run it (me included) have the VGA flag set while the others haven't.
May 31st, 2004, 11:47
what is the vga flag set and how i can have it?

Well, they say you can just hex edit your ISO (if you're running from a CD you have to create it first) and search for JUE. You will see a bunch of hexadecimal characters after it, something like this: 799B10. I copied that from my working Soul Calibur ISO so I guess you should get it working of you make it the same.

i have done bin2boot in one of my homebrew game and from 670 the size goes to 750 and i can burn it on a cd :)
what i have to do guys?
vex when i found that 799B10 number what i have to do with it?

I tested some, and figured out that games that do not support a DC VGAbox won't work on chankast either;
in other words: chanka is running as if a VGA box is being used. You won't see any 50/60hz options in games either.

Any games that give you the AV cable error you need to simply edit the bootstrap of your iso to enable VGA box support. It's not hard. Just do a search with google and you'll figure it out.
Same for making things self booting, just do a search or read a homebrew site like dcemulation.com on how to make a emulator self booting, but instead do it with your backup or whatever the hell it is.
