Does anyone know how to backup their GC games on a mac?
theres a way, but im not entirely sure how. you need a broadband adapter and Phantasy Starr Online. You can then view the GC via FTP and you just drag the files over. just like backing up Xbox games. IIRC. infact everything past "Online." is from the muffled up part of my memory
Well.. I do have the BBA... but not the game... I've read that on the pc, there are apps to make it easier.. I wondered if there was anything similar for the mac...
Here is a link to a Gamecube ISO ripper and loader for mac:
You do need Phantasy Star (the original version which you can buy on ebay) and a broadband adapter to run the ripper app.
It maybe possible to rip the game another way but I think it requires installing a modchip and you still need a broadband adapter.
I have a Qoob SX installed in mine.....
Do I still need the PSO game?
I'm not really sure. Maybe you can burn the ripper program on a dvd and run it on the gamecube, the problem is that I don't know how you would actually get the data using this method onto the mac.
I don't have a modchip myself so i don't know anything about using it to back up games.
I found a forum, where someone asked a similar question:
Maybe this will help.
No. PSO Loaders are the old way of doing it, but now that there are modchips, you don't need to. However, getting those 8cm disks can be a pain and they're usually waaaay overpriced, which I why I'd recommend the Viper, as it has that bigger case so you can run standard DVDs
That's what I have.... I have a Qoob SX (1.3c bios) with a Viper case to use the regular sized DVD-R's...
But I still wanna learn how to back-up my original games....
I know how to do it on a PC (CDRWIN)
Ok... I'll PM you when I get my laptop back from repair...
Or go for a torrent and burn that (found one when looking for films - Resident Evil - I can't be assed to re-encode my DVDs)
