UltraARC for Inno Setup (Conversion Tool)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Presenting UltraARC for Inno Setup

What does the program do?

This program allows you split freearc, 7-Zip and winrar archives in so that they may be able to fit in media
or volume output of your choice, CD700s, DVD5s, DVD9s, BRD25s, BRD50s, doesn't matter, it
will fit.

Changes

Added simple page for quick users
Added multiple source support
Added split option
Fixed Joliet ISO Image creation for files larger than 680MB
Updated Self extracting executable
Removed Crunch Texture (I wonder why I added it in the first place)

Compression level 0 is Freearc no compression
Compression level 1 is WinRAR fastest compression
Compression level 2 is 7-Zip normal compression
Compression level 3 is WinRAR best compression
Compression level 4 is 7-Zip ultra compression
Compression level 5 is Freearc with Srep, Delta, Exe and LZMA Compression
Compression level x is Freearc with Precomp, MSC, Srep, Delta, Exe and LZMA Compression

Distribution is ideal for making one compression but support any media the user chooses.

For example, users can just select DVD9 or CD700 for GTA V, just depends on what the user has, so no one is forced to buy BRDs to make the conversion because some of us still don't have BR-RW

Running Windows 8, set Compatability mode for Win7, as reported here:

Added Inno Setup Enhanced Unicode for users to compile


Edit UltraARC.ini for DVD5 or DVD9 Sizes.

DVD5
[Split]
FirstVolumeSize=****
CustomVolumeSize=4480
ThresholdPercent=30

DVD9
[Split]
FirstVolumeSize=****
CustomVolumeSize=7950
ThresholdPercent=30>

BD25
[Spilt]
FirstVolumeSize=****
CustomVolumeSize=23500
ThresholdPercent=30>


To Calculate FirstVolumeSize , CustomVolumeSize - ( Everything in FIRST Output folder)

Uploaded FIXED CIU2037 ISS script 2037_Fix-Feb01.2017.rar

I almost forgot to mention, setting smaller thresholds is essential for disk space for both compression and installation. (But not too small, you will end up with something like data553.cab.part69)
But sometimes, you won't have a choice because threshold is sometimes controlled by the program, this only happens when you have set a smaller threshold than the biggest file size in a selected directory

hello, what about WPI bro ? :p
---------------------------------------------------
sorry, i dont know what "threshold percent" means....
Can you explaint please? :)
----------------------------------------------------
excuse me, these three: BlackBox Support, BB Glass Support, RG Mehaniki Support

SO hard to understand the scripts :(
i dont where i can write the address of archive
can you make this more clearly just like WPI down here?

"Precomp=0.42
Archive1Type=Freearc
Archive1Source={src}\setup1.bin
Archive1Output={app}
Archive1Disk=1
Archive1Password="

Razor12911 28-02-2015 02:09

Wpi and glass will get it soon.
Threshold percent explanation is in the instructions.
For writing the addresses, relate to inno setup constants, {src} is the source directory.

cleaned up topic & removed all posts regarding issues with previous versions.

gatosky1620 28-02-2015 12:27

razor bro can i import my own files list

pakrat2k2 28-02-2015 13:36

^^ no it cant import file lists. That's was one main reason for creating this, no longer needed to take the time & hassle of creating lists, it does it automatically for you. All you need to do is create your images, for the installer.

but the reason is to create 2 languages, no videos, only single player,etc versions

pakrat2k2 28-02-2015 15:11

same as you do for any of the CIU versions, all specified in the setup.ini

@Everyone
I am a bit busy, but I will upload updates if you find bugs within the program.

mrcunbeo 01-03-2015 09:57

hello, I have compressed my game and I received 2 file: mydata1.arc and mydata2.arc
but WHERE should I add these files in "new blackbox script" to make it understand and extract for me?
This is original script: http://codepad.org/cKZ9oRUH

Razor12911 01-03-2015 10:01

Just place everything from the output direct near the complied exe, these files: mydata1.arc, mydata2.arc and records.ini. then everything is taken care of.

when you run setup, it will automatically extract the files.

"Internal error: ExtractTemporaryFile: The file "precomp.exe" was not found."

In Setup/Setup subfolder there should have been a file called "TextBG.png"

should also be a sction in setup.ini

Code:

[TextStage]
Top=150
Left=300
Width=400
Height=300
SpaceFromBorder=5
Center=1
Font=Calibri
FontSize=1
FontColor=$20A5DA

which is where you specify that box, below is what it looks like. Added file below...

Droppo 01-03-2015 15:33

on 2.2.1 Still the same problem.

Also I realized the program reads a file called session.ini which is created by the program, and it doesn't care if you change folders, parameters or anything if the file is there it will be read and will lead to the same error even it you change folder prefixes or anything else, they will be overriden and show up the same error.

Now deleting the file will let you use the program work again. Besides all that, the problem still persists, once done all the mentioned above.

So if you could please check that will be appreciated and ofcourse check that thing about session.ini

it's a total loop of chained errors

EDIT: Found the cause of the error. tries to move from and to the same folder. My FirstVolumeContent was set to what was supposed to be the final folder for disk files so the program tries to move the files from and to the same folder. I guess there should be a message warning when selecting folders or a check to do when the FirstVolumeContent and Disk 1 folders are the same moving should be ignored.

session.ini problem is still there, deleting it is just a quick workaround

Hi
Razor
impossible to run (( setup.exe )) here the error

Tixo56 02-03-2015 04:57

This is elementary. The setup doesn't work, because it can't find precomp.exe, that you use in your installer.Which is likely to lie in a include or is_files folders.
I think, you should add this file or if it is damaged , download a new.

Tixo56 02-03-2015 05:48

I doubt that I understand you correctly but if you want just the icon , then you take any image and remake it into a format ico.
And if you want it to change the icon in the setup you must prescribe this line in your installer:
SetupIconFile=Img\setup.ico
I hope I understood the essence of your question correctly and gave an answer

Stor31 02-03-2015 06:03

How integrated ( .cab ) file
with R. G. Mechanics ????
plz and thx
