I have been hesitating a long time whether I should release this or not. But, after all, I don’t see much differences between releasing part of a game or the entire game image. So here we have a shared folder that contains patched GDI images I made. At the moment, I only have games to which I’ve added the VGA support. Basically the boot file has been replaced by the patched one and the boot sector’s (IP.BIN) VGA flag has been set so that the game can boot with the VGA cable plugged in. Regarding the tracks format, I kept the original raw/binary (mode1, 2352 bytes/sector) file format but as I modified part of it, I fixed the ecd and ecc vectors so that any software sees the image as legit.
Among the games there are in the folder, there is a one I haven’t released anything about so far: it’s “MTV Sports – Skaeboarding Featuring Andy Macdonald v1.002 (2000)(THQ)(PAL)[!]”. You can also find its patch in my patch repo: jc-dc-patches.
I don’t know for how long I will keep the sharing open, so I encourage you to make copies.
Go to: jc-dc-gdi repository
Note: The version of SoA is in the GDI format so unless you split the game in three of four discs or use compression technics (like for instance echelon’s release) you won’t be able to burn a copy. However, I have a patch for Echelon’s release. Once I am done with Dino Crisis I will certainly release it.
