Dreamcast Dumping Script (for Win10 and *nix)

Post by darcagn » Mon Jul 08, 2013 9:44 am

I've been buying a lot of discs lately and needed a faster way to both dump/post info and to verify that my discs are good.

Usage: dcdump.sh [dreamcastIP]

Features:
  • Downloads all tracks automatically using default dumping parameters
  • Spins down GD-ROM drive when dumping is completed
  • Prints GDI and file size/hashes to the terminal so that you can quickly compare info
  • Generates postinfo.txt file with everything ready to go for a perfect post here at Dumpcast. Just write in your ringcode and paste into a new post.
Download here
or see the text of the script here if you can't download .sh files for whatever reason.

Saying "Win10" in the topic is slightly misleading -- on Windows 10 if you enable the "Windows Subsystem for Linux" feature and install the Ubuntu app for free from the Microsoft store, you can get a bash prompt that is compatible with this script. You may have to run "sudo apt install libarchive-zip-perl" to get crc32 functionality working, but all the other commands in this script should be compatible.

I've tested on OS X Mavericks, OS X Snow Leopard, and Ubuntu. On OS X, you will need to install wget first--the easiest way to do this is by using a package manager such as Homebrew, fink, or MacPorts. The hash generation code relies on OpenSSL so make sure that is installed too. Everything else should be standard on any common *nix distro.

Comments and suggestions welcomed. I will be happy to address any cross-platform issues to get it running on your system.

Hi,
is your script able to output the nicely coloured text as in this post viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1744 and is it still up to date? The httpd-ack image is to be found on the forum right?
Thank you in advance for the kind answer,
Max.

Bump. The script link was broken and the forum BBCode messed up the text of it in the post.
I've fixed the script link and also added a text link if needed.
