Using Gameshark CDX

Post by EnigmaticCoder » Sun Apr 24, 2011 1:37 pm

Can anyone tell me how to use CDIRip to get a iso file from my gameshark cdx.cdi? Do I then burn it like I would a homebrew game? Do I use the .wav file generated from using CDIRip or raw audio from dd? Once burned, how do I use the CDX demo to play imported games?

Upadte: Solved.

These are the two methods I've tried:

# Get the iso
$ ./cdirip ../../DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/ -cdrecord
$ ./cdirip ../../DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/cdx.cdi -cdrecord

$ mv s01t01.wav ../../DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/s01t01.wav
$ mv s02t02.iso ../../DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/s02t02.iso
$ rm tdisc.cue

$ sudo ./cdrecord -scanbus
$ sudo ./cdrecord -v dev=6,0,0 speed=4 -multi -tao -xa ./DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/s01t01.wav
$ sudo ./cdrecord -v dev=6,0,0 speed=4 -tao -xa -eject ./DC\ Gameshark\ CDX\ Demo/s02t02.iso

//The following method worked for me. I had to keep trying to load the cdx demo. It seems to work when I open the lid before starting the system.
//The other method after using CDIRip
$ cd CDRom
$ dd if=/dev/zero bs=2352 count=300 of=audio.raw
$ cdrecord -scanbus
$ cdrecord dev=6,0,0 -multi -audio audio.raw
# Use the iso from CDIRip
$ cdrecord dev=6,0,0 -multi -xa tmp.iso

Ah, figured it out, thanks to another post. All I had to do was swap the disks before I pressed, "Start game without codes."
