How to make your own Mini Image.

I could make a beautiful little tutorial to show you all how to create your own Mini Images but there is already an excellent one to be found here.

Strange.

This guy only has 2-3 bad sectors and still claims that it works?
Surprises me since Cirkutz' MIR produces 22MB large files. And 2-3 sectors are never 22MB big

well i'd say its just an example plus he would have more but we just cant see the whole screen? But he did only let it go for approximately 15 seconds? And I know from my experiences that they go for longer than that, especially at 1x like its shown there!
I was going to write my own tutorial for it but then to include images etc would mean I would have to host them etc or upload them to a host site and well hey I got a bit lazy.

Just an update, Ive been doing a bit of messing around with these mini images and yes it does appear that all you need is 3-5 of the bad sectors!
So what I said in the earlier post about not being able to see the rest of his screen is irrelevant.

never is lol..starforce is gonna take over eventually
ive tried using those cleaner programs to run games in the past..granted they work but it also hammers your drives,i had to re-flash 2 of my drives after and had to throw a dvd r/w out cos of starforce mangalling my pc.

so my advice..leave it alone,refuse to pay for games that you cant make a back up of.and maybe if the rest of the sheep in this world dont keep buying this rubbish,starforce will go bust.

one thing i noticed that might make you chuckle,were i live..6 weeks after splinter cell chaos theory was released at ful price..it had been dropped to 9.99 everywhere,so i think that maybe people are aware of the star forcerubbish..i call that good news...bad sells=price reduction..and price reduction is the only thing better than making back ups of 40 games...why buy one when you can buy 4! lol.

OK this intro how 2 make a mini image is really "scientific" but my way is better!
U don't need bad sectors or **** like that.
As soon as u started the imaging progress u click cancel and then yes.
U need 2 do this as fast as u can 2 keep the file small. When u mount the image and u see an empty disc, u were to fast.
This workes for every existing protection but for starforce and securom u need a good mds file.
Without daemon4 the starforce image is useless but it WOULD work.

Are you trying to play a game ? Dont understand your strange request
Well, if you disable node, many SF3 games higher than 3.5 wont work with an image/mini image...you have to disable your ide drives physically from your comp.
btw: they fixed the mini image thingie a while ago, im not 100% sure, but 99

No they don't work anymore. but i can say you how to make them.

Make youself a full 100% RMPS Image with Alcohol 120%.

Then when the file is done, get yourself Magic-ISO or Ultra-Iso or any other Image Programm. Open your Alcohol Image with it.
Now select all big files which you don't need and delete them in the image.
After that, safe your new image and booom you have your mini-image.

But you can be sure that this mini.images wont work, cause this was a bug and got fixed.

But "SFCURE" works 100%. Tested on Starforce 3.6 and UFO: Aftershock.

Yes, with version 3.4.65.?? an ISO check was included (the same now with Safedisc 4.6), so no MI working anymore.

P.S.: With SF 3.7 none of the known methods (USB/Firewire, SFCure, sfcdvd) will work anymore (maybe still for Win98/Me, NT) ; all eyes on DT4 (DT pro)
