Tool for patching DVD-DL (Double Layer) games.

    • Introduction taken from readme.txt
      As many of you are probably aware, the PS2 has problems running DVD9 games backed up onto dual layer media
      due to the problems reading from the second layer.

      This is because the data format on burnt DL discs is different than on
      pressed discs (burnt = OTP, pressed = PTP).

      However, we have discovered a software hack which allows the PS2 to read even burnt OTP discs
      resulting in working dual layer backups!
      Toxic firmware for DMS4 chips already includes auto-patching functionality
      which applies our software hack on the fly when booting games on dual layer media.

      For those without a DMS4, we present the Toxic Dual Layer Image Patcher!
      The patcher works by applying our software
      hack to the game image (.iso, .gi etc) before burning.
      Once the hack has been applied by our patcher,
      burn the modified image to dual layer media and play!

      This method will enable anybody with a modchip capable of booting
      DVD9 media to backup and _play_ DVD9 games such as Gran Turismo 4.

    • Usage Instructions taken from readme.txt
      1) Obtain an image of the DVD9 game.
      Supported image file formats are:
      - .ISO
      - .GI
      - .MDS
      2) Execute the Toxic patcher application.
      3) Click on the open button (labelled "...") and select the image file
      you wish to patch.
      4) Click on the "Go" button to begin the patching process.
      5) The status of the patching process will be displayed in the status
      area. This will tell you if the patching was successful or not.
      6) If patching was successful, burn the patched image to dual layer media
      using your favorite burning application.

    • Notes taken from readme.txt
      1) If you get the RSOD (Red Screen Of Death) while attempting to boot your DVD DL backup game,
      this is due to an authentication error.
      This can happen when the "book type" of your backup is set to "DVD+R DL" and not "DVD-ROM".
      Most burners will automatically set the book type of your burnt disc to DVD-ROM,
      however if your burner does not do this you should be able to manually modify the book type using burning software such as DVD Decryptor.

      To verify that the book type of your burnt disc is set to DVD-ROM,
      start DVD Decryptor,
      insert your backup disc and in the info window find "Physical Format Information (Last Recorded):".

      A few lines down should be the text "Book Type: DVD-ROM".

      2) If your PS2 has problems reading from your DL backup (ie: movies are
      choppy or the game even locks up at points) then this is probably due to
      bad quality media or a bad burn.
      Make sure that you use decent quality media and you burn at the SLOWEST possible speed.
      We have had best results with Mitsubish and Verbatim DL media.

      Greets go out to all of our supporters, you guys make this worthwhile :)
      A big "F%$# you" to all the lamers who accuse us of stealing (still with no proof :P),
      but then go ahead and blatantly steal from us anyway.
      Lets ask ourselves now,
      who is actually innovating and who is just ripping off others achievements? :)

    • 1: Rip DL ISO from original disc using proper tool (== "DVD Decrypter" or ImgBurn)
      2: Patch ISO with Toxic DL patcher
      3: Patch ISO with ESR patcher
      4: Burn ISO to Disc of Either DVD-R_DL or DVD+R_DL type
