    INTRO

    Ok this is a tutorial how to “backup” multiple games 3-4 maybe 5 if there are really small(and you are lucky)or multiple PS2 CD games in one DVD disc(Single Layer).There are 2 ways to reduce the size of a game but I will not go in to this cos the 2 biggest problem is that the CDDVD gen can’t handle more than 30 files [Folders don’t count] and some times games have the same file names and this is a problem that you can solve only with a hex editor but it is not recommended.

    *I haven’t tried it to dual layer disc cos Playstation 2 have problems to read them anyway…

    *This is NOT a tutorial about multiple PSX games in a DVD

    *The PS2 must be MODed

    *This Project has been created under Win 2000 Pro for a PAL PS2(Should be the same with the NTSC) Don’t bother me about Linux or that Useless Clown called XP

    *I want to thank SONIX for he’s super tools and he’s Superb site www.Backuptools.co.uk that you MUST visit.

    *If you can buy 1 DVD-RW NO +RW -RW has more changes to be readable by your PS2 but to make sure make a 1to1 copy to your RW of a game to test it out and if your PS2 reads it …you are very lucky!!!

    What will be needed and where to find it

    1:ScanLite By Sonix (For Patching the files)www.Backuptools.co.uk

    2:Apache3 Preview By Sonix www.Backuptools.co.uk (For Creating *.iso + FileList + Extracting) If you find any bugs remember ….IT’S a PREVIEW VERSION!!!!! ISOBUSTER Won’t work

    3:DVD Decrypter www.ps2nfo.com or Burning your Image Setup needed)NO NERO and always slower speed as possible

    4:$ony CDDVD Generator 1.5 www.ps2nfo.com (for Creating your image)

    5:Notepad(Windows Default)

    6:CDLoader www.ps2nfo.com (Actually is the “Select Game” menu of the disc that we are going to make)

    7:Wnaspi32.dll www.nero.com (CDDVD Gen Needed)
    It’s included with Apache3Preview
    Or if you have Nero installed on your system you can copy the file from
    C:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero
    Or If you have GameJack installed to your system from C:\Program Files\GameJack BUT you must copy the file to the System32 directory of your windows and register it.If you have Nero or Gamejack installed you don’t need to register it.
    How to register: Open the “Start menu” select “Run…” and type
    regsrv32 C:\winnt\system32\wnaspi32.dll and press enter… Done

    8:Maybe a Dummy file maker. The Reason: Search the games Directory cos some games have large Dummy files so with a Dummy File maker you can create your own dummy files smaller to free up some space.

    9:DVD-R no +R Disc(I don’t know why but for some reason PS2 doesn’t likes much DVD+R)

    10:HD free Space 10GB (NTFS)

    11:And finally 3-4-5 games that can feet in 4485mb

    After you have download all this staff (Except the DVD-R and the 10GB) we can

    Start
    For this project I will use Drive E:\ as default
    CWC = Crash wrath of cortex
    ICO = ICO
    TAK = Tak and the power of JuJu

    I have used the following 3 games(I know games for kids but small enough to feet in 1 disc)

    Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex(A CD Game?Yes a CD Game Thank Sonix for that)If you Have a CD Game for PS2 You can Patch it with DVDScan and burn it to a DVD.This will make your PS2 a Happier!!
    Tak & the Power of JuJu (DVD)
    Ico (DVD)

    Lets START!!!

    STAGE 1 – File List,Creating ISO + Extracting

    Open this Great tool Apache3.From the left side select your DVD device that you want to rip the game and press the Create Iso button ….keep your eyes open for read errors if you see one clean the disc and try again.

    After all your iso files has been created go to your Hard Disk that you have save the iso files and create one folder for each game NO SUBFOLDERS and DO NOT USE LONG NAMES Like “E:\Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex“ keep it simple Like E:\CWC E:\TAK E:\ICO (CDDVD Gen has some problems with long names and spaces)

    Back to Apache3 press “Open” and select one of the 3 images e.x. CWC open it when it is done you must create a file list of the game press the button with the pencil and the paper and a pop up window will appear promote you to save a *.txt document go to the folder that you have created before named CWC and save it.
    Now press the button with the Green Arrow “Extract All” again a window will appear go select again the same folder that you have saved the File List and press OK.

    Just do the same steps for every game.
    After that you MUST delete the file SYSTEM.CNF from every game and you can delete the iso files(not recommended but if you have space problems do it)

    If you Haven’t done it before Unrar the CDLoader to the same Hard Drive that you have the games you will find 1 image file open it with apache3 create a folder Named CDL and create a file list of CDLoader and extract the files like you did with the games in the CDL folder.Now go to the CDL folder and delete the Fifa Demo Folder.

    STAGE 2 - Patching

    Now open ScanLite select from CD – DVD - Restore the DVD Option and press Open and select the right or all the files from every game (read the pdf that comes with scanlite to know witch files needs patch) as usual the files that needs patch is SCES _ SCUS_ SLUS_ *.IMG *.IRX
    You can select all the files and scanlite will do the job but in every file that isn’t a system file will pop up a promote to scan it or not but it safer this way and you won’t need to read the pdf
    *Scan the subfolders of every game + the CDLoader

    STAGE 3 – Making The Menu

    Now open Notepad go to File>Open and select from file types “All files” and go to the CDLoader folder and open MSYSTEM.CNF. Or you can have notepad open and drag and drop the msystem.cnf file into notepad and

    You will see this:

    \MENU 1\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 2\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 3\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 4\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 5\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 6\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 7\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 8\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 9\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \MENU 10\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1

    This is your in cd menu that means that you must be careful

    In \MENU #\ Section For the first 3-4 lines type How the name of the game will appear and in the \PS2Load.elf\ Section the SCES_ SCUS_ of the the Game DO NOT FORGET TO ADD ;1 at the end e.x. my msystem.cnf file is like this
    For the disc that I have made

    \Crash Warth Of Cortex\cdrom0:\SLES_503.86;1
    \Tak and The Power of JuJu\cdrom0:\SLUS_205.19;1
    \ICO\cdrom0:\SCES_507.60;1
    \Created\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \By\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \SDF GR\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \Blank\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \Blank\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \Blank\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1
    \Blank\cdrom0:\PS2LOAD.ELF;1


    *Make sure you have 10 lines
    *Characters like _-+ will not be visible
    Save it and exit notepad

    STAGE 4 – The Boring Job

    “CAUTION”
    *Make Sure You have copied the wnaspi32.dll to System32 Directory
    *If you haven’t Delete the System.cnf from every game DO IT NOW!! If you add the to the directory of the CDDVD gen The Disc won’t BOOT for SURE.
    *30 Files limit. Folders don’t count.Every time I have tried to add more files the disc didn’t load

    Open CDDVD generator
    “Create New Project”
    “DVD-ROM MASTER DISC”
    You should see Directory
    Do NOT Maximize make it as small as possible and place it to the right of your screen.
    Go to the CDL folder and open the file list that you have saved before drag and drop the file as they appear in the filelist.txt to the the right side of the CDDVD Gen be super careful cos if you place the files wrong the disc wont boot plus you can’t move the files up or down after they have been dragged in to the CDDVD Generator so you must be Extra Careful.
    After you have drag all the files of the CDLoader it’s time to add you games you must place by the order that you have place them in the MSYSTEM.CNF in my case Crash after Tak and finally ICO
    Open the FileList.txt and drag the Game files by the order that you see them in your filelist.txt Don’t worry about the files in the subfolders 99% there are shorted by name by default.
    *If two games has the same directory name(very rare)just put all the files to the same folder but keep the right order.
    *If two games have the same file…you can’t do anything
    *If 2 or 3 games have the same dummy file you can delete them and leave just 1.When I mean the same Dummy file I mean exactly the same including the extension cos almost all the games have a dummy file but in some games is Dummy.000 in other Dummy.dat … this is what you should check and place the dummy file to the bottom.

    When you have done this press the “Volume“ tab in the column “DISC NAME” type the SCES or SLUS or SLES or what ever is from the first game that you have added. In my case is crash and the file is SLES.In the 2nd column type the number of the SLES in my case 50386 don’t try typing _ or . you can’t anyway
    Select you License Area
    Volume identifier> Volume Anything you like e.x I have typed Created_By_SDF_GR
    PRESS FILE >SAVE AS…> Give a Name and Save it(Just in Case).
    I don’t believe that you have enjoyed dragging all this files to the CDDVD Gen)

    STAGE 5 – Creating the ISO 1/2

    Press the Rec button a popup window will appear promoting you to save a *.iml file.
    If you have your Files in e.x. in my case E:\CDL E:\CWC E:\ICO E:\TAK you should select E:\ give a short name Like the first letter of every game in my case CTI and press save you will receive 2 errors that is normal Don’t Panic!!
    1st Recording unit not connected
    2nd Initialization Failed
    A new window will appear
    Just press File > Export Image again a new window will appear promoting you to save *.lst file.
    Select again the same HDISK that the games are saved and for one more time do not save it to subfolder or folder save straight to e.x. E:\ disk give the same name as the *.iml in my case CTI and save it. Shit back and wait.
    When this is over you will find 3 or 4 in my case 5 it depends by the size of the project files to the destination disk named CTI.000 CTI.001 CTI.002 CTI.003 CTI.004
    Close CDDVD Gen

    STAGE 6 – Creating the ISO 2/2

    DO NOT USE IML2ISO Fat System 2Gb Limitation
    Open the Start menu click run type cmd press enter and a command window will appear and you should see this (This is for rookies)
    C:\>
    If you have saved your *.lst to E Drive you should type E: and press enter and you will see this
    E:\>
    Now type exactly and don’t forget always hit the space key after Copy,after /B and before and after +:
    Copy /B CTI.000 + CTI.001 + CTI.002 + CTI.003 + CTI.004 PLEASEBOOT.ISO

    Shit Back and relax until your iso is completed
    Type exit and press enter

    STAGE 7 – Final Round

    Open DVD Decrypter(Best Software to back up your PS2 DVD games)
    Press Mode>ISO>Write
    Select the source file “PLEASEBOOT.ISO”
    Select the SLOWER Recording speed as possible(You should always use 4X speed when it is about Backing up PS2 games) and press the icon with the HDD>>DVD or File > Write
    Sit Back and wait your iso to burn………. Hear The Music…
    DONE!!!!
    ENJOY

    You say
    i'm sorry to say this but i'm sure that most of us on afterdawn use "that Usless Clown called XP" so you are reaching out to those few and far between. Also how would that even work? even if you got these 3 games on a disc how would you load them? sure you could load the first one, but what about the second or third?

    1st you don't have to find these 3 games you just need to find games small enough to fit to 1 Disc.
    2nd CDloader is the menu of the disc that is why you must delete the System.CNF file from every game.When you load the disc to your PS2 A screen will appear saying Change Disc and press X but you don't change the disc you just press X and a new Screen will appear with a menu to chose what game you want to play.That is why you must edit the MSystem.CNF file from CDloader carefully.
    And about XP it is not my problem.They "supposed" to be close enough with win2k but with 1000 useless svchost(services)more!especially with SP2.
    So that tutorial should work but if don't...i can't do anything.

    That error that you got ,i don't know what you have done, but i opened the CDDVD gen and i didn't add files at all and i only write a random name to Volume >> Disc Name and i pressed rec and i got the same error.
    Have you add files properly?
    Have you selected DVD-Master Disc?
    What is the size of your project?

    Alright, I've had it. I will pay $ with paypal to whoever will make an ISO that will burn on a DVD that works on PS2. I will upload to you the original ISO of Marvel vs Capcom 2, you convert it to a working DVD ISO and send it back. I have a mod-chip and I just cannot get this thing to convert to DVD format. If you have to use the method of a "multi-game" disc then so be it. I cannot do this because of my OS and software compatibility issues.

    Anybody who wants easy money to make a working ISO DVD format of MvC2 please post here ASAP! I don't see how this is piracy but I'm willing to risk it because I am out of options.

    Any response is greatly appreciated.

    OK!!! Philshere i have good news the iso is ready and i have tested it my self, to a V5 generation PS2 with Messiah2 Modchip and plays just perfect,the issue was that you should add a dummy file larger than 1.5gb.
    Now i have a question for you:
    You want me to upload the iso to RS
    or
    you are ok with the following instructions?
    and you don't have to download 150mb from RS?

    Instructions
    1st download the link that i have send you with PM.
    extract the rar to C or D hard disk drive ,do not use subfolder
    then go start menu >> run >> and type cmd and press ok.
    a command pr window will open.if you have extracted to D drive type D: and press enter.
    You will see this
    D:\
    type:
    dummy DUMMY.DAT 10000000000
    and press enter
    type again
    dummy DUMMY.00 10000000000
    type exit and the CMD window will close
    Now go to your D drive through windows and you will find Dummy.DAT and Dummy.00 files 953mb each.

    If you already extracted the files from the iso,created a file list and you have patched the files with Scanlite,

    Then follow Stage 4 from the tutorial

    and after you have added all the game files to the CDDVD Gen,add the 2 dummy files at the bottom of the list.
    Burn it with DVD decrypter at 4x and use DVD-R NOT DVD+R.
    That should work,if not,Don't worry i have already started to upload the iso to RS.com just in case.
    If yo have more questions,just post!!this is why forums are for!!!

    Alright, I want to make sure of something I hope someone can answer. I've gotten the first 2 games on the disc to work but the 3rd game can't boot without any success. When the tutorial here mentions "don't use over 30 files", does the topic creator mean 30 files you can view in CD/DVD Gen or the files you see in the TOC AND the files within the folders too. What I mean by files in the TOC is when you pop the disc into your dvd drive and look at the disc's content where you see folders and files, does the topic creator mean, by 30 files, the files here and within the folders too? Just wondering because my 3rd game won't boot, and I'm wondering if this might be the case since I have like about 20 files for my 2 games while my 3rd takes up like 17.

    Edit: Ugh nm. It's the game I'm trying to multi I guess. I'm struggling to get Disgaea 2 to work.

    Hi everybody! I have also trouble to make a multiple dvd ps2 disc. Have anybody ever tried this tut with final fantasy x or final fantasy xii ? Cause if I want to extract the files from the (4gb *.ISO) with apache, the extracted files have only bout 5MB. I wonder because the ISO size is 4GB but the contents only 5MB ??? Sorry for the worse english ^^ (from germany )

    Hi guys,

    Don't shoot me for asking :), but I'm looking for a way to have some PSX games on one DVD (Actually Tomb Raider I -> III, Chronicles and Last revelation), so is there a way to have them all onto one DVD??

    Thank you :)

    First make an iso then try to extract the files.
    The question is if the game is 4gb why you want to extract it?

    Nobody will shoot you cause noone can answer to you ;-).
    I really dont know i have tried many ways nothing seems to work.
