    what it does:
    ===========

    nothing special, just wrapped a very basic gui around waninkoko's backup-creator.exe so i don't have to call the command line each time I want to patch a game for the backup loader.

    usage:
    ======
    simply doubleklick bc-gui.exe (can be located anywhere on your harddrive, doesn't have to be in the same folder as the iso), will prompt you for an iso and start converting it (showing you the progress in MB & percentage). resulting file will be named "{insert you game's name}(converted).iso"
    as opposed to "partition.iso" when using the original command line patcher.

    source-code (Blitzbasic) is included, only 173 kB

    Mirror1 (share-now) **fixxed**
    Mirror 2 (rapidshare)

    The rapidshare link doesn't work...it says the uploader has removed it.

    The ShareNow link isn't an archive, it's an HTML file of the Rapidshare website renamed to .rar

    Really nice program. I've been burning a lot of backups and this helps tell when it freezes or not.(Galaxy did once. Took over 2 hours >_>)

    A mac port of this backup creator would be excellent.

    Really? Works fine for me too. Did your ISO filenames have spaces in them? That could potentially mess with it, not sure. I know the tutorial I read on it all said to use the simplest file location possible with no special characters and no spaces and drag & drop works fine for me.

    Hey, i tried a lot of the creators. Is it possible to save the ISO on another drive with this?
    Because I have a C and D drive and only 5 gigs free on each. So, when i try to patch the iso, i dont have enough space on one drive. The patchers always create iso's on the same drive. What i want to do is have the ISO on my D drive and save the patched image on the C drive. Is there a patcher that can do that?
