Q: On which firmware can i run this?
Ans: This is a LT+ 3.0 only ISO but you can convert it into a LT+ 2.0 ISO. Just follow this guide
Q: So does this mean that LT+ 2.0 wont be able to run this?
Ans: Yes and No. If you burn this game directly then LT+ 2.0 wont be able to run it. But you can play this game after you fix the ISO using the tutorial above.
Q: Should i run this game through abgx?
Ans: Yes. You should run every XGD3 game through abgx360 so that you can check whether the iso is corrupted or not. Make sure you use the latest version of abgx360.
If you are on LT+ 2.0 then untick ‘Verify if Stealth passes’ in abgx.
Q: Why does abgx360 1.0.6 say that verification of this game failed?
Ans: Dont worry about that. You are getting that message because this game hasn’t been added to abgx’s database yet. As soon as it is added your entire log will be green.
Please note that if a game’s SS & DMI files are valid, it has been patched with the topology data and if there is no CrC corruption then that ISO is safe to play.
Q: How should i burn this game?
Ans: I have added a tutorial inside the rar files, please read it.
Q: What software should i use to burn XGD3 games?
Ans: IMGburn and CloneCD both work with XGD3 games, i personally recommend ImgBurn.
Q: I have a pre 78-79 hitachi/ Samsung with LT+ 2.0 will i be able to play this game?
Ans: Yes, as your console is immune to every ap2.5 check you can play this game online and offline safely. Just make sure that you burn your games properly.
Q: Should i go and play XGD3 games online?
Ans: You should only play XGD3 games online if you have burnt them with a Liteon IHAS dvd writer flashed with Burner MAX firmware. Truncated burns are NOT safe online.
Q: Has this been ripped using the latest v3 0800 firmware?
Ans: Yes. Every XGD3 game posted on this website has been ripped with the latset 0800 firmware and is fully stealth patched. See abgx log for clarification.
