    Hi there , am havin a really confusing problem with C&C Generals . A friend of mine has the original game he made a copy of it which is perfectly working .
    I burned this copy ( that he made ) and every thing went great as well with the burning process.
    When i tried to install the game from the copy ( i made ) the first CD went great , but when i insert the Second CD , the installation wizard doesnt even recognize it or it shows up an error when it reaches the file called " W3D.big" .
    I scanned my friend's CD-2 with ClonyXXl , its shows 5 skulls & no protection.
    Am very confused with this ?
    i read in your forum that CD-2 in Generals is unprotected ..so wats happening ?

    Dude, read the bloody rules man.

    Can you say pirated???

    If you don't own the original game you are not within your legal rights to produce or use a copy of said game, program etc.

    This forum is for people who are seeking to produce backup CDs for the "original" game discs that they have already bought and paid for.

    C&C Generals is Safedisc 2.8.x cd protected. Use Alcohol 120% latest build to make a backup. NEVER say I borrowed a game to make a backup as there are rules atthis forum. I gave you the protection and program to use. It's up to the admin or mod to determine whether to continue on with this thread. Sorry m8, rules are rules.

    weswes,
    It's still piracy because you didn't buy the game. We are entitled to 1 backup of every software we purchase (alone) by U.S law. I don't mind lending the advice to help you out, but I too must abide by forum rules.

    Well i downloaded Alcohol 120% " Trial " and i got some problems using it , it always hang wn i start to burn the CD , so i gave up trying for now coz i got other things to do .
    But the good news are , i were having the same problem with SOF2 Double Helix , i tried Clone CD and every thing went great and the game worked , so i guess i'll try C&C with clone cd , guess it will work.
    Thanks for care Shoey.....
    Cheers

    Before you burn your backup of C&C Generals, you might need to "amplify weak sectors" in the write process. Let me know what brand name and model burner you own. You also may need emulation.

    My burner is Acer , i dont know its model exactly , its not written on it , anyway what am sure of is : ATAPI , Can write in RAW-DAO , has EMF encoding .

    I got few questions ,if u dont mind ,
    1- Is it real that CDs copied by clone CD when burned with other CD-burning software wont work fine ?
    2- Does Clone CD has the property " Amplify weak sectors " ?
    3- What is emulation ? and does Clone CD has it ?

    Your Acer burner can correct efm encoding, but writes regular bit patterns "almost" correctly.
    You can make a backup of C&C Generals using Alcohol 120&, BlindWrite Suite, or CloneCD.

    1) Ye and Ne. Depends on the first backup and if that was image was backed up by a "2 sheep burner" and also for the abilty for the reader to bypass the cd protection scheme.
    2)CloneCD(USA) version doesn't install the option of "amplify weak sectors" in the write process due to some USA laws. I can get the program to "amplify weak sectors", just a matter
    of changing regional settings on your pc.
    3) Emulation is for those burners who can't backup cd protection, but need the aid hide cd-r , bad sectors and SubChannel data fixed.
    I have a more simple solution for the CloneCD "amplify weak sectors", just email me.

    It's a shame I can't post my email address, but rules are rules, and I must abide by them. I don't use any im's as they are a pain in the arse.

    Hi Shoey. Sorry, it wasn't me who wrote the rules. This is for user's safety, to prevent their mail being filled with spam (see rule 10. in link below)

    If you want to post it, I'll promise to not delete it, but I cannot speak for the Admins. Private messaging is not enough for you?

    Well, this rule is a smart recommendation since posting email addy around will get you heavily spammed as email harvesters pick it up.

    This rule has also been applied because n00bs tend to: 1) Request trading, cracks, etc. via email 2) Ask to be replied via email only, which doesn't serve the public interest of sharing knowledge and information.

    Why would you absolutely need to distribute your email address?
