      Following this close as I am trying to unpack an Area 51 Site 4 (yes, I know it's not a 2x6 game) onto a hard drive. I assume it's done the same way?

      Is there any particular format the drive needs to be set to prior to doing this? IE .. Fat32? any cluster size?
      So, I went to diskmgmnt.msc and just deleted the volume completely off of my hdd and it did show it writing fate unlimited code. I'm about to try it in my system now

      Edit: It would appear I underestimated how new my hdd was. It wasn't molex at all, so I cannot properly test that at the moment. Will acquire a different hdd asap and try again.

    • When you keep saying molex do you mean IDE connector for the data and the one you have is SATA ?

      The filesystem does not matter, when you write the image it writes the file system for the drive. As to requirements you would have to look into the game itself but I think Area 51 just needs any IDE hard drive.

      thekillerinstinctproject.com/kiproject/chdman.html you can follow the instructions here "Using CHDMAN to Write/Restore an Image to a Physical Hard Drive (File to Physical Disk)"

    • While not quite 246/256 related I think we might be able to apply this concept to the HDD games. The drive in my Area 51 Site 4 was flaking out on me so I looked into something SJLewis did and it works very well.

      What's the benefit of doing this as opposed to just using an IDE DOM?

      I'm generally leary of IDE to SATA adapters as most of them seem to introduce a delay on the initial access which can cause problem with a lot of hardware. (Notorious on the Original Xbox)

      Exactly. I originally wanted to use a regular IDE to SD card but 90% of them out there will not work.

      I wanted to get away from using a regular hard drive as every little jostle would make them stop working. In addition no more mechanical parts means they last allot longer. I can tell you there's no delay here and the games run much faster.

      Yeah these were the ones I bought. Did not have any hardware problems with them. I just needed to figure out how to properly make a drive.

      I bought this converter and an 80GB SSD all for around $20 US. Stoked to try this out!

      Separately, for the touchscreen games, can I just use any pc touchscreen monitor, or do I need a special I/O board and monitor for it? It isn't a big deal if I can't play these, but if I can, I just want to get them to work. I've dived into the tinkering part of this, and want to get as many of these 2x6 system games able to be played on my machine I'll be building soon.

    • For what it's worth I reached out to one of the makers of those sata adapters that claimed ATAPI support for HDs with regards to the optical drives. Turns out they all use the same marvel controller and when looking into them none of them fully support the ATAPI standard so no on-market adapter currently will work for optical.

      That said though it's really easy to get a replacement dvd-rom still thankfully and not too expensive either.

      Is there a list of which combinations of Soul Calibur II dongle and disc work without the memory card?

      I'm trying to test this game out on the ATAPI ODE and I'd like to rule out simply using the wrong combination

      the combination listed as the Japanese version in MAME is: sc21vera and sc21-dvd0d?
      is this correct that this is the only combination that works without the memory card?

      I want to be able to test as many combinations as possible.
