    Hello again,
    I thought I might as well contribute instead of just asking questions, and don't think this has been uploaded yet.

    [​IMG]

    One of the Promotion Discs, this time #4 - Premiere, September 3rd 2000.
    The disc says:
    "Digital Presskit"
    "Images, Screen-, Packshots"
    "Presse-, Bildarchiv" (Bild = picture)
    "Volume 4 - PC/MAC"

    The 'manual' also contains packshots, including Half Life and Agartha, as well as a 1-page description of each in English.
    I am missing two of the pages, so the 'manual' is NOT complete... if anybody cares, I will scan and upload it anyways - along with the disc & cover scans.

    So here you go (beware, new links):

    Oh, and the disc title is "DREAMCAST", just like the .iso.

    Enjoy!

    WindowsKiller, this IS an untouched iso.

    Heh, right.
    But then, I do have to rip the Disc somehow.
    Either I copy all files to HDD and pack them in an iso, or I directly make it via UltraISO or ImgBurn or whatever - how would you like it then please? :p

    Don't get us wrong. We really appreciate the the thought here. But I'm a little confused as to why you would do this as well. its kinda like ripping all the pages out of a book, and then elmers gluing them back together and saying its the same book.

    Yes - that's why I did NOT do that, i made an .iso with UltraISO, staight from the disc, without any alteration. I really have no idea what you are talking about ?!

    Alright then, hope you like it.
    Already thought I was going crazy, since that didn't make sense to me ;)

    EDIT: I think I figured it out... WindowsKiller believed UltraISO could only build ISOs from files, not directly from discs - so he tought I had copied the files. Oh. Sorry then for the misunderstanding.

    This isn't something you run from the Dreamcast, Ed the Nerd. It's a collection of artwork for game magazines, store promotions, etc.

    Thanks for sharing this, Manolo! Some really great stuff in there.

    Congratulations on that ;)

    I'm glad you guys like it.. didn't know how common this was these days ^.^

    By the way, is there a list of already 'publicly' released GD-R betas (with the exact versions/dates if possible)? Might have something to share.

    The interesting thing about the disc is all of the empty folders (like D2 in the software directory). I wonder why they bothered to leave them on the disc?

    And once again: I did dump the disc directly, UltraISO also created me .md5 and .sfv files for the disc and image. I've rechecked all that and then packed the .iso with Winrar and 3% recovery record iirc.
    The files are on my other HDD that I'll have to hook up first to upload them, but honestly I don't feel like I have to prove anything.
    Take it or leave it, I explained often enough how I ripped the disc.
    Besides that it does not matter at all, since theres nothing on the disc that would require an accurate 1:1 copy - but it still IS, as far as UltraISO is capable of making one.

    And @Dreamcast: Yeah, I found that quite strange too.

    Guys, stop whining about so called missing stuff. We're lucky to get anything. I don't know if manolo did recompile the disc or not and to be honest I don't care. He's gave us something for free and for that we should be grateful :nod:

    Yakumo: my comment wasn't about how Manalo copied the disc, but why SEGA hadn't removed the folders that didn't contain anything. It looks like they may have used one of the three prior releases as a template and just filled in the updated information.

    I know mate. My post wasn't aimed at you in particular just at the thread in general. If I was the person who uploaded the files I'd feel pretty unappreciated with some of the comments here.

    You got that right Yakumo - but it's still nice to see one of the big names in my thread ;-)

    Again, since WindowsKiller still insists I am lying: I did rip it straight from the disc.

    BUT, and here comes the fun: I never used UltraISO before and therefore was not aware that there are (at least) three ways to make an .iso straight from a disc in UltraISO.

    1st way: 'File' => 'Open disc' => 'Save as...' => .iso CRC 8aabc637 (this was the way I did the first rip (which has a different CRC) - I didn't think UltraISO would change the disc structure when 'directly' saving to .iso...)

    2nd way: F8 => Box 'Use ISO-Volumefilter' checked => .iso CRC 797375f7

    3rd way: F8 => Box 'Use ISO-Volumefilter' unchecked => .iso CRC ee47cd0d

    I didn't test if anything changes when checking the box 'Ignore Read Errors', since UltraISO didn't notify me of any... and the disc looks rather good to me.

    For even more fun, I also created an .iso with IMGBurn, which ended up with the same CRC UltraISO method #3 produced.

    I can't really judge what's right only based on that, but since IMGBurn got the probability:

    The file is packed a little differently this time, for those among us that are into archiving stuff.

    Kudos to WindowsKiller though for realizing the problem, but I think if you hadn't been assuming I was lying about the way I created the image we might have uncovered the issue a little more quickly.

    Perhaps the empty folders contained MAC stuff, which isn't recognized untill you open the disc with something like transmac.

    Thanks for this release btw Manolo :)
