Cool Act of War REAL DVD5 Conversion!

For those that have BOUGHT the excellent 'Act Of War - Direct Action'.......you will know its a DVD9 disk - 5Gb+...........to back this up.....your kinda stuck if you don't have a DL burner or DL disks!!

Well.....fear not!.........lets get that baby onto a normal 4.7Gb DVD!

We do this by removing the 'language' data you don't need........and here is my guide for doin so.........

(note - this is to keep the English data only)

1 - Copy all contents of your original DVD to a Temp-Folder on your harddisk.

2 - Goto Video folder and delete all files EXCEPT cutscene_00.avi.....Eng_cutscene_00.wav and mplayerc.exe.

DELETE Language (readme.txt) files from Root.

DELETE Manuals/Acrobat files from Manuals except English.

3 - Download i6comp .

3 - Extract the i6comp to the Art Of War root directory.

4 - Go into the 'release' folder and cut or copy the i6comp.exe and paste it into the root dir of AOW.

5 - Get the cmd prompt up and navigate to the AOW root dir.

6 - Get the DOS fingers out.....copy and paste in the commands listed below................

i6comp d data2.cab 90 datav_fr.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 91 datas_fr.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 92 datav_de.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 93 datas_de.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 94 datav_it.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 95 datas_it.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 96 datav_es.dat

i6comp d data2.cab 97 datav_es.dat

7 - Once this is all done......check the filesize of the whole AOW folder.....it should be about 3.36 GB!

8 - Go into the AOW dir and delete all the i6comp folders and files so in total after this is done you should have 23 Items.

9 - Open up WinIso/UltraIso and create an iso of the files and folders.

Burn to normal 4.7Gb DVD!

Works fine and dandy ho!!

I can confirm that this method indeed works. The game installs and plays fine.

It shrunk my installation by nearly 2GB!

Thx for the guide!

Hi DABHand

As Far As I Have My Orginal (UK Release) It's In 5 Different Languages..!
That's ENGLISH - FRENCH - ITALIAN - SPANISH - GERMAN

Making A Backup In English Only Would'nt Harm.. LOL

i donīt know why to compile a .iso for testing it. iīve tried it also (after compiling it to .iso) and i get the crc error too. but installing direclty from the temp dir worked. also the direct ISO burning to a silver worked for me. i bet, that the .iso compiling stuff isnīt working right. iīve tried magiciso, etc.

regards
