Compatibility with PlayStation 1 images #4
Hello. Was very excited to recently discover that bchunk is back under development. This tool has been invaluable for me, so thanks for all you work on this!
bchunk has always worked great for me, except for PlayStation 1 BIN/CUE images. It works fine for single-track images, but often fails on multi-track images. 1.2.2 actually improved that situation somewhat, but there are still some discs that I can't successfully convert to ISO.
Here's an example:
Note the size of the bin file compared to the wav. After converting:
Note the size difference now - the ISO is only 300K, while the audio file is huge. It seems that bchunk isn't splitting these files at the correct point.
I've tested about 100 PS games with this. 20 of those fail, all with the same pattern - multi-track BIN/CUE images with the data track split at 300K and the rest prepended to the final audio track. I thought there may be a problem with the use of split files, instead of a single BIN image containing all data, but many of the working discs are also split files, including audio tracks. I'm not sure what about these fails.
Any chance you can look into this? Would appreciate it. Happy to provide any additional details or samples that my assist.
