QUESTIONS - All Conversion Questions to be Posted Here

If you have any type of conversion questions, which does not belong to a specific conversion, then post them in this thread please.

If you have a Question regarding a specific conversion then ask your question in that specific conversion's thread.

Unpack all files from Setup.cab to folder Setup, add ; in front of #define ProgramFiles (second line) inside InstallerScript.iss.

Remove ; from ;#define Internal (tenth line) in InstallerScript.iss.

Remove ; from ;#define Internal (first line) in LangScript.iss.

Compile and that's that.

You should check the link that @artdekdok provided.
Highest compression that you can use with Inno is lzma2, however...

It has been reported on few occasions that difference between lzma2/ultra and lzma2/ultra64 is only by several megabytes and it takes way longer to compress with /ultra64 parameter.
Which is not worth, IMHO.

Which method results in the best compression - Internal using Lzma2, or External using Freearc (No Srep or Precomp, since I have no clue how to use them)?

Also, I am having a rather irritating problem with a video at the moment:

After converting it with "Any Video Converter" to an .Avi file (Xvid codec), and renaming it to 'Video', I place it in the background folder and it simply does not play.
Placing at least one .Jpg file allows the video to play - However the Video is fast forwarded and ends in less than 5 seconds, then the picture is shown.
The actual install does take longer than the video would have played for, so that can't be the problem.
The game is Cloudberry Kingdom, but I have had this problem before with Hitman Absolution as well.
I am using CI 8.5.7.4.

Is there any way to fix this?

Just wanna ask which DiskSliceSize use to minimize free disk space on both DVD5 and DVD9, and usage of DVD9/5 would be choosed just by different SlicesPerDisk. (1550000000 lefts too much free disk space on DVD9)

Example situation: 20GB and want to do it on 1xDVD9 and 3xDVD5

Example situation: 20GB and want to do it on 1xDVD9 and 3xDVD5
Valid values:
262144 through 2100000000, or max
Default value:
max (2100000000)

Description:
This specifies the maximum number of bytes per disk slice (SETUP-*.BIN file). Normally, this should be set to the total number of bytes available on the disk media divided by the value of the SlicesPerDisk [Setup] section directive, which defaults to 1.

This directive is ignored if disk spanning is not enabled using the DiskSpanning [Setup] section directive.

To optimally fill 4.7 GB recordable DVDs, use:

SlicesPerDisk=3
DiskSliceSize=1566000000
To optimally fill 8.5 GB (dual-layer) recordable DVDs, use:

SlicesPerDisk=5
DiskSliceSize=1708200000
To optimally fill 700 MB (80-minute) recordable CDs, use:

SlicesPerDisk=1
DiskSliceSize=736000000
To optimally fill 1.44MB floppy disks, use:

SlicesPerDisk=1
DiskSliceSize=1457664

you cant do both at once. diskslicesize tells inno wether you want a dvd9 or dvd5 cant do both at once. you can do dvd5 but reduce 1566000000 to say 1555000000
to allow redist room on first dvd. Then just move some of the setup2.bin files to first folder until it reaches dvd9 size, then rest of setup3.bin files across remainder dvd5 folders.

I have changed my VGA to a Radeon Hd7950 3Gb and since then in the system verificacion of any conversion made with CIU 1.0.0.6 it always appears in red like it doesn't meet the minimum requirements, i think maybe it's related to the 3gb but i don't really know, is there any way to fix this in the conversion script?
PS: I don't know if my question goes here but if it don't, please let me know, thank you
