    • GDEMU Working Great. Question about making my GDI backups.

      Hey guys,

      Just wanna say I appreciate the work done by the folks here to give my DC new life. The loading times are insanely fast too .

      I know that GDI to CDI conversions went through different revivals with folks trying their best to make it as true to its GDI origin.

      Is ripping GDI a more straightforward process with the community tools available? Can anyone do it so long as they follow instructions? Thanks!!

      edit: Is it really as straightforward as this process?

      yes it is.
      if the question was about GD-ROMs dumping (retail games) - step 3 is not needed.
      that manual is more for GD-Rs (prototype games) dumping, and not really easy because it is quite hard to find required official "System Disc 2" and they are quite expensive.

    • Why bother to dump your own is my question?
      The entire GDI format catalog is both available and verified.

      I have the North American complete (with a few JPN stuck in)...

      Still wouldn't be "legal" here in the USA... The DMCA says you cannot defeat protections regardless.
      Some exceptions can be made in the argument of preservation (jail breaking of iphones was allowed).
      These images are already preserved, so its still a shaky defense.

      I'd guess it was more about using cracked games / software ?

      you don't need to crack or modify anything it this case. funny thing is, in the case of GD-ROMs dumping, GD-drive will still check disc's protection ring and let you access it (play or dump no matter) only if security check passed OK :) (e.g. if it is legit retail GD-ROM disc, not self-written GD-R)
