    heres a copy of a 3disc tutorial i have never tried it so can't tell you if it works or not, good luck

    This is a tutorial to make a 3 disc DVD5 backup of Xenosaga. This does not cover how to
    downsample the movies to fit the entire game on one dvd5. I believe part fo this tutorial
    was originally posted by dnm, but was never finished. I used some of his previous work
    and finished out the rest. I have partially tested all of the discs but greatly apprciate
    any feedback.

    Swap Points: Disc 2 starts on the UTIC Battleship, and disc 3 starts at the Song of Nephilim.

    Step 1: Make an ISO image (I use DVD Decrypter)

    Step 2: Extract all files from the ISO using Sonix Editor. As usual thanks
    Sonix for the great progs.

    Step 3: Remove the DVD9 check inside ORG_IOPRP24D.IMG (this modified
    file will be used for all three discs):

    Offset Old New
    1E790 10 00
    1E792 40 43
    1E793 14 24
    1E794 02 01
    1E796 02 01
    1E7A2 00 41
    1E7A3 00 AE
    1E7A4 05 0B
    1E7A6 40 60
    1E7A7 18 14
    1E7A8 00 02
    1E7AA 00 02
    1E7AB 00 24
    1E934 2B 01
    1E935 18 00
    1E937 00 24
    21F5E C0 00


    Step 4: Make DVD1

    4.1: Split Xenosaga.24 into two parts using master splitter or similar program
    the first part (774455296 bytes) will not be used, The second part must be
    217702400 bytes.

    4.2: Rename the second part Xenosaga.24 (of 217702400 bytes) to Xenosaga.21.

    4.3: Use dummy files for Xenosaga.22, Xenosaga.23, Xenosaga.24

    4.4: Reindex LBA table XENOSAGA.20 (Make sure to keep an original of the file
    for the other discs)

    Offset New LBA value
    3CF 030000
    3DF FCCD00
    B04 3D9F01



    4.5: Burn the disc using CD-DVDg1.5.

    the game is LBA dependant and must be burnt accordingly which means that you will have to
    use CD/DVD gen to burn or at least construct the ISO. If you have a pioneer anf v1.5 then
    build the disc using the same values in the file tree list for the corresponding disc. If
    you only have v1.2 then do this method provided by leering7 (thanks)

    It will say "The recording Unit is not connected" and "Initialization failed" Click OK
    to both. A new window will open up - $ony CD\DVD-ROM Recording Unit Controller
    Click on File, Export Image and input a name and save it.
    The files that are exported are iso img files (max 0.99GB in size) example: game.000,
    game.001, game.002, etc After it haves create the image files, you need to start
    DOS Prompt then go to the location where it stores the files called game.000,
    game.001, game.002, etc files (upto 4.37GB) depends on the size from the game.
    Then if you are at that directory enter this command inside DOS prompt:
    copy /b game.000 + game.001 + game.002 finalISO.iso,
    now you will get a new image called finalISO.iso (of cource the command can be
    longer but that will depend on how many game.000, game.001, game.002 files
    it will output, so just make that command the maximum files on how big your game
    is) remember always start with game.000 first! else you will waste a dvdr.

    Don't forget I have included the all 3 discs file trees from isobuster for reference
    It will not work unless the files are in the right order and the LBAs for the files are
    correct.


    Step 5: Make DVD2

    5.1: Replace all files using ISO Edit (Start with a fresh version of all files
    except ORG_IOPRP24D.IMG)

    5.2: Replace XENOSAGA.24 and XENOSAGA.12 dummy files.

    5.3: Split XENOSAGA.11 apart, the first part must be 20971520 bytes, the second
    part (1052770304 bytes) is not needed

    5.4: Split XENOSAGA.13 apart, the first part (663271424 bytes) is not needed, the
    second part must be 8531968 bytes

    5.4: Join the first part of XENOSAGA.11 (20971520 bytes) and the last part of
    XENOSAGA.13 (8531968 bytes) and rename it to XENOSAGA.11
    you can use copy /b [xenosaga.11 piece]+[xenosaga.13 piece] XENOSAGA.11

    5.5: Replace the original XENOSAGA.13 with a dummy file

    5.5: Reindex LBA table XENOSAGA.10 (Make sure to keep an original of the file
    for the other discs)

    Offset New LBA Value
    EF9 042800
    798 2B2800
    F0D 6F2900
    18EC 792900
    1903 AC2900
    7AB 2C2A00

    5.6: Burn the disc using CD-DVDg1.5.

    Step 6: Make DVD3 (the hard one)

    6.1: Replace all files using ISO Edit (Start with a fresh version of all files
    except ORG_IOPRP24D.IMG)

    6.2: Split XENOSAGA.23 apart, the first part (513777664 bytes) is not needed, the
    second part must be 559964160 bytes

    6.3: Rename the second part of XENOSAGA.23 (559964160 bytes) to XENOSAGA.21

    6.4: Rename XENOSAGA.24 to XENOSAGA.22

    6.5: Use dummy files named XENOSAGA.23 and XENOSAGA.24

    6.6: Reindex LBA table XENOSAGA.20 (Make sure to keep an original of the file
    for the other discs)

    ** this edit was made because of this post:

    yes, and that tutorial has a mistake, make sure in disc three that you edit the value that tells you to change to b4a802 to b4a804 instead, or else the game will freeze in proto mekabah...

    Basically what that guy just said is that its probably not worth the trouble of sorthing through the files to back up a game worth 15$. If you want a backup copy, then buy one on ebay or half.com. Unless you see a challenge in this and do it as a hobby, like me.

    to be honest i never really checked the price of the game before but if its only 15$ i may buy it. Ill still try this though since i like a good challenge and it will give me practise for any other upcoming or current DVD-9 games (GTA: San Andreas, Champions of Norrath)
