Me again.

Just downloaded the SADX Mod Loader from GameBanana, and it won't run for me. It just asks for the discs even when I've clicked for the loader to ignore CD checks. It's a UK executable, if that still matters.

Yes, it does still matter. The mod loader is only compatible with the US EXE. Although it's supposed to be able to detect when you're using an invalid exe file...

Downloaded your crack, placed it in the SONICADVENTUREDX folder (deleting the original .exe file) and now the loader tells me 'Unhandled exception has occurred in your application' etc. etc. (system cannot find the specified file).

Any ideas?

The file should be named 'sonic.exe'.

So, rename the crack to sonic.exe? Have done and same issue.

One thought. I did move the files from the 'Sega' folder in the C: drive's 'Program Files' folder to the 'SEGA' folder in the root C: drive (where the files for S&K Collection, Sonic 3D and Sonic R are) after I installed the base game. Just uninstalled the base game and will try and redirect the files to the 'SEGA' folder in the root C: drive from the installer, as well as replacing the 'sonic.exe' file, to see if it changes anything.

EDIT: And it now works. Cheers.

I have a question, MainMemory.

Going off of the fact that you'd cracked a PC copy of SADX, could you help me crack a copy of Sega Rally Championship PC, please?

Much like your copy of SADX PC, it runs fine vanilla (just some slight task bar bleed on the top), but I'd like to be able to run it without the disc, if you could help me please.

I don't own Sega Rally Championship. Plus, if it uses actual copy protection, or if files on the disc are required to run the game, I can't help you with that. SADX was easy because it just checks for a file existing in a disc drive, so I can just make it skip over the check.

Any way to know if it uses actual copy protection? I'll copy over the disc's files to see if it requires those to run.

EDIT: I've downloaded a cracked copy (so it now runs without the disc, without the music) and ripped the music from the disc into a 'MUSIC' folder in the 'SRALLY' folder (which means that I've now everything off of the disc that I need). Could I Dropbox you the 'SRALLY' folder, so that you can try and work your magic, please?

It sounds like you're asking me to make a mod loader. I'm not willing to invest that much time for a game I don't even own.
