Since this was not done before I just decided to go ahead and do it because why not.

Please note that you have to be on 5.5.1/5.5.2 for this to work.
Download and run the .elf from homebrew launcher with a fat32 sd card/usb device inserted that has at least 23.3gb free.
The files will be dumped in 2gb parts, you will have to merge them yourself afterwards if you need the full game.wud.
A full dump can take a little over one and a half hours.
After it has been dumped the wud parts, common.key and game.key will be in a "wudump" folder on your sd card/usb device, to get the full game.wud you will have to merge them.
If you are on windows you can use something like this for example to merge them into a game.wud on a "wudump" folder on your C drive from a cmd in the sd/usb folder:
Code:
copy /b game_part1.wud + game_part2.wud + game_part3.wud + game_part4.wud + game_part5.wud + game_part6.wud + game_part7.wud + game_part8.wud + game_part9.wud + game_part10.wud + game_part11.wud + game_part12.wud C:\wudump\game.wud

If you would just like to install your game using wupinstaller then grab wud2app:
https://github.com/FIX94/wud2app/releases
If you dont want to merge all .wud files you can put wud2app into a folder on your pc and run it from a cmd with the wudump folder path as argument, for example if the sd/usb folder happens to be in "P:\wudump\WUP-P-TEST" on windows you can just run wud2app like:
Code:
wud2app "P:\wudump\WUP-P-TEST"
If you do have all .wud files merged then put wud2app into the folder of the merged .wud and run it like run it like:
Code:
wud2app common.key game.key game.wud
Make sure to copy the common.key and game.key into that folder as well if you use that method.
The folder it creates can just be installed by wupinstaller.
While it is quite basic it gets the job done I guess, all I really wanted to do anyways :P

A full dump can take a little over one and a half hours, you should also probably disconnect any usb device before letting it dump or else it might dump far, far slower.
After it has been dumped the wud parts and the key.bin will be in a "wud2sd" folder on your sd card.
If you are on windows you can use something like this for example to merge them into a game.wud on a "wud2sd" folder on your C drive from a cmd in the sd folder:
Code:
copy /b game_part1.wud + game_part2.wud + game_part3.wud + game_part4.wud + game_part5.wud + game_part6.wud + game_part7.wud + game_part8.wud + game_part9.wud + game_part10.wud + game_part11.wud + game_part12.wud C:\wud2sd\game.wud

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I've been listening to it last couple hours on repeat, its ok, abracadabra only good one really, and its just mid. You can tell Dre didn't do much of the producing on it.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It's giving revival vibes tbh

    @SylverReZ, what a deal
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    2 games and 1/5 for free
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    That's why they're super rare now lmao.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    id has used something called TestDrive where you would select the game you wanted to buy, call support and give them the number on-screen, then they would give you a registration key to unlock it. Fortunately for them, the games were encrypted using some weak encryption cryptography, so somebody wrote up a crack to generate keys to unlock them without calling id. John Romero got pissed and left some unworthy messages on Usenet.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, so it still kinda
    counted as piracy?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Well it was id's fault for not educating themselves before shipping it out. Always make sure your protection isn't reversable, but the 90's was alot different back then.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Copy protection was straight forward, consumer CD burners weren't out until '96. Most of them used dongle or CD checks, nothing like SafeDisc or StarForce.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    all protection is reversable

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @The Real Jdbye, True. It's easy if you've got so much programming experience with how the protection works.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've cracked CD and dongle checks before, heck, even first time manually unpacked SafeDisc myself.
