    New BCA protected games

    The new games emerging are protected with a system called BCA (Burst Cutting Area).

    The will be a patch released for each game, which is basically 64 bytes of
    BCA data in the form of a separate text file, that will come with the ISO file (this obviously only applies to scene releases)

    IF you have access to a retail copy of the game, then you can obtain the BCA code yourself to patch the game.

    It is assumed (and confirmed by some) that the modchip manufacturers will also introduce fixes for this.

    ************************************************** ********

    You need a copy of uLoader for this:ULoader

    And CFG USB Loader: CFG

    Run uloader with the retail DVD (or get the codes below)
    Click on the show BCA option
    Copy the values to a .bca file using a hex editor
    copy that file to /usb-loader/gameid.bca

    ************************************************** ********
    This thread will keep a list of the known BCA codes for released games.

    Hi, I have a problem with Avatar game - it freezes wii at some point - is this also BCA related problem?

    [edit] Yes, I am sorry I overlooked this - it was written above.

    davepm, thanks for the good infor but I have a question (Excuse my neubie ingorance) but on a usb drive where do you place these directories? I assume the CFG USB loader just get unzipped and extracted to the "apps" folder, and the "usb-loader" folder sits in the root of the fat32 directory? is this correct? thanks again..

    Would applying the BCA patch as outlined above be the same thing as applying iND's v2 patch?

    The reason why I ask is because I was hoping that BCA patching would allow my D2Ckey to load the game in the disc channel instead of using a loader like Neogamma.

    (Clicking start game from the disc channel will just give a black screen with no messages at all on D2CKey... my IOS60 is patched and IOS53 is trucha signed btw).

    Well I just shot Wiikey an email asking if they are going to release a new firmware for the wiikey 2 to get around the BCA protection. They should be replying soon.
