My sorts/tools, last time

All my sorts (mine and submitted) from my old site and my ripping/patching tools (warning - no docs, don't ask me how they work!) get them while they last. Feel free to mirror it somewhere else, as I still have basic access to my old FTP even though he yanked my website but not sure how long that is going to last.

Tools
Sorts

I'm still very much attached to all things Dreamcast, but just don't have time for doing much these days.

Have fun

I have a few questions about sorttxt files.

The files are ready-to-use? 1st_read.bin is usually the number 0 in the sort files. It means it has the lower LBA? (inner part of disk, near the hole). Because mkisofs interpret it as priority, that's the contrary thing! It put the lower number file in the end of CD (higher LBA). 1st_read.bin is really the outter file? Or I have to invert the numbers in the sorttxt so I can put 1st_read.bin in the inner area? I'm confuse. 1st_read.bin usually has the lower or higher LBA?

P.S: Sorry DarkFalz, I asked you before but I was not sure about what mkisofs does with the filelist, but now I am.

Thanks all o/

1st_read.bin is the last file on the gd-rom (or cd-rom for a backup) it makes it being accessed faster since the DC read discs in CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) with means the cd spin at a constant speed (or velocity) and that the laser read according to this. Since there's more data (for a full revolution of the disc) at the outter edge of the disc thana t the inner, the reading speed is greater. So a 12x CAV reader will read the inner ring at ~6x and th outter ring at ~13x.

If you can't understand what I wrote because I'm not clear or because of any other reason, here's the general idea: The sort files are OK, the 1st_read.bin is at the outter edged of the disc, because it makes it being read at a faster speed than at the inner ring.


Thank you.

If you don't include the dummy file in the sort, it will actually go on the outside (defeating the purpose of it).

I don't develop them anymore and haven't done any game ripping of my own for ages, so they're not going to be updated as I probably wouldn't understand my own source if I were to read it and I couldn't be bothered putting up a new web site.

Not sure, I never used that tool. I think I remember it though - personally I would recommend using adxencd and my loop calculator instead.
