wemery73 Posted June 9, 2004 Share Posted June 9, 2004 another great post was found on alt.binaries.cd.image.xbox BAED 2 Posting FAQ: Q: What's your fill policy? A: First of all, I backfill files that show incomplete on my ISP's server shortly after posting. This meansthat if you simply refresh your headers, the file that showed incomplete before will be complete. Sometimes itmay take several hours for me to backfill an incomplete, but just wait. Q: What should we NOT do? A: Don't request fills from #a.b.c.i.x. They don't have them. They may have them once everyone else gets them,but, as I said in the NFO for the first disc, I'm just a regular guy, not affiliated with any release groups oranything, so right now I'm the only person with the files. If you need a fill, request it on the newsgroup. Pleasedo not request any fills until I'm finished posting. USE THE PAR2s! They are there for a reason. When postingthe last disc, people were requesting partial reposts before I finished the post, and before I posted the PAR2s at the end of the post! Also, if your news server is so bad that you have to request a repost of the first 50 partswhen my posting progress hasn't even got up to part 60, well, sorry, but you just need a new news server. BAED2 has10% PAR2s instead of the 5% that the first disc had, so hopefully that should be enough for most of you to fill inthe missing parts. BAED 2 FAQ: Q: So, what's on this sucker? A: Gameboy: 1,480 games Gameboy Color: 1,233 games Gameboy Advance : 1,023 games Game Gear: 413 games Q: What's missing? A: Well, the full set of GBA takes up over a DVD by itself, so obviously some things had to go. All hacks for allof the systems are gone - only official games on this disc, and, of course, no overdumps or any crap like that. Severalofficial GBA games also had to go. Like on the first BAED, I deleted Euro games (and a couple of Jap games) for whichthere is an identical American version. Q: The new v10 of the XboyAdvance emulator just came out last week. Did you use that on your disc? A: Yes. The collection of GBA ROMs also has the newest games, like Van Helsing and River City Ransom EX. Q: This game won't boot on my Xbox. What do I do? A: I don't know. Really, I don't. It tested fine for me. A couple people had this problem with the first discand I don't think anyone ever figured out what caused it. If you're one of those people, you'll likely have thesame problem with this disc because it was made the same way. Try updating your Xbox's BIOS. If it still doesn'twork, let me know, but be sure to include ALL the details about your Xbox you can think of, and whether or notthe first disc worked for you (if you have it). Q: There are no stupid errors like menu entries mapped to the wrong emulator, are there? A: No. It's easier to see problems like that when you're working with four systems instead offourteen. Also, this time none of the preview pictures are squashed, and ROMs for all systems are organizedby region (as categorized by GoodTools, then condensed, and subfolders added to folders with more than 100ROMs, by me). If the game you're looking for isn't in the "U.S." folder, check the "World" folder. Many ofthe most popular games were released in all regions. Q: How do I burn this ISO? A: Just like any normal Xbox ISO. I've only tested it with Alcohol 120%, but it should work fine with whateverprogram you normally use. Q: Why did you use the STORE attribute on the RAR archive? Do you like wasting space? A: 99% of the content on the disc is already compressed. The emulators extract the games from ZIP files automatically when you play. This lets me fit more games on the disc, but, of course, also makes the ISOpretty much non-compressable. Q: This FAQ is too long and there are no illustrations to keep my attention! A: Sorry, I type fast and I'm probably not as succinct as I could be. Q: Will there be a BAED 3 ? A: Sure, why not? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
