Plain Files (Scrambled)

Plain Files --> it is so that I put your games of gba and later you create a selfboot CD

Source --> The source code

Image with Homebrew GBA roms --> ^^"... selfboot image... burn and insert directly on DC...this has a homebrew games

Ok so if i download the image and record it as it demands the emu will be playable?
It sounds to easy i hope that it will be ok?
So scramle files are used to make the cd bootable...Am i write?

yes you need a scrambled program to have your dc load it correctly

Scrambled program you mean......
............which is part of the emulator's files?......
Emulators have different scrambled programs,right?

download the plain files, there should be a file named 1st_read.bin. This is the executable. The executables are usually scrambled by the author. Anyway if you haven't already figured out how it is done P.M. me.

Ok lets just say that i download the 1st_read.bin...
Then i record the image whish is the emulator(right?)
.................................................. ...............?
Now question:I should record the 1st_read.bin. file after i record the image....
I mean that all i have to do with the 1st_read.bin. is to burn it inside the image?
Whats its purpose?.....Do we need them to make the Emulator bootable with Utopia?
1st_read.bin is the scrambled files that we are talking above?.....
Thanx for your tim...no for your patience i mean.....
Be specific as more as you can...Just take a look at my location.....I can say ITS ALL GREEK TO ME!!!!!!(LOOOOOOOOLL)

Look forward

I am also extremely confused on how to burn it... I just tried and wasted a CD and I hope next time I can do it right! Could someone go through a step-by-step on how to do this?

I used to burn these things all the time, but I forgot how to.

I use Nero

Ok, first of all there are plenty selfboot/boot tutorials/programs. Just use the search operation. The one I use is a little program named selfboot.exe

Another way is to boot your DC with DC-Hakker (it's *something* like Utopia disk, but for loading legal applications!). So download DC-Hakker, burn it to a disk and boot your DC with it. Then burn on another cd the 1st_read.bin and the roms you want to play, swap the DC-Hakker disk with this one, hit the refresh button, choose 1st_read.bin and it should run! This procedure is generall, you can use it with any program/game you download.

P.S. Hey you greek guy, if all these still sound like greek to you drop me a email or p.m. me!

May 9th, 2005, 16:56
Hope you are kiding......Is your location real?....No way.......
Ok thanx for your replies.....
To be honest some of your *words* are greek to me
So iam gonna copy and paste your text into a dictionary........
Now your are talking man........
But still have some blanks in my head(dreamcast blanks not others......lol)
Please look at my guestions one-by- one-...
Can you answer them?
Thanx...... Elefas?!?.....Sounds weird but too familiar after all!!!!!

Please tell my what to do from the begining?!!

It is not so hard.Go and download the image of the Dc hacker in www.dchomwbrew.org
Ok burn it...This program can read the Bin files of the homebrew apps,emu...etc.
Then go and download the emulator.Drag the Bin file of the emulator and burn it in a multisession disc.
Power you Dreamcast with the Dc Hacker.....Replace Dc hacker with your Bin CD and
choose scan.
Finaly you will be able to open the Bin.
oh DO not forget to rename the bin in the name of the emulator.
Thats all..
Have fun.
