Installer on retail disk is mess (custom install doesn't work), it works otherwise so i think thats the reason why disks haven't recalled, unlike Terminator where installer didn't work at all.

GhostBusters The Video Game Proper (DVD9 to 2xDVD5)
Install sequence DVD1-DVD2-DVD1

1) Create temp folders

'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1'
'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_2'

2) Copy DVD9 content to 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1'

3) Move:

'data1.cab & data2.cab' files from 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1\Setup\' to 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_2\Setup\'

4) Remove (Delete):

'bin' folder from 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1\Setup\'

5) Copy:

'ghost.ico'

file from 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1\' to 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_2\'

6) Create autorun.inf in 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_2\':

[AutoRun]
Open=0
Icon=ghost.ico

7) Extract 'Ghostbusters (TM) The Video Game.7z' contents to 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1\Setup\'

8) Burn or make isos with labels 'GHOSTBUSTERS_1' and 'GHOSTBUSTERS_2'

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
To save time,i tested it under vista x32 & xp x32 with dummy cabs archives

Now bin files are in right place also after custom installation
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

for all users who have an issue about installation:

use Windows Installer Clean Up click the entry 'Ghostbusters (TM)' in the list,
and then click 'Remove' button and repeat the installation.

I got it to work though by copying over the bin folder into setup folder for Disc 2. It installed fine, no errors.
remove manually atari folder and re-install

Windows Installer clean up has removed old msi settings

no need to copy bin folder (can be deleted) to disk2 or disk1, bin files are stored into data4.cab-data9.cab

Peter - it worked! You are still the man! I needed to run that windows clean up in order to remove old msi settings. Installed both DVDS without error, after deleted the bin folder from dvd2. Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

Thanks peterf1999 proper conversion works for me.

But one little edit:

In step 5 you write:

Copy:

'data1.cab & data3.cab'

files from 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_1\Setup\' to 'temp\GHOSTBUSTERS_2\Setup\'




As you see in picture 'data3.cab' is on DVD1. I think that 'data3.cab' isn't necessary on both DVD's. I'm tested without 'data3.cab' on DVD2 and works 100%.

For strange reason data1.cab & data3.cab are necessary on both DVDs

edit1:
data1.cab & data3.cab are not necessary on both disks

uninstall the game ( or delete manually game's folder) and is very important to use Windows Installer Clean Up to eliminate previous bad installations settings

Ghostbusters The Video Game DVD9 to 1xDVD5 (InnoSetup) (English sound only)

1) Install the game using any path you like, but the game folder must be 'Ghostbusters'. (e.g. 'D:\Game\Ghostbusters')

2) Delete 4 files from the game folder: w32ESsnd.pod, w32FRsnd.pod, w32DEsnd.pod, w32ITsnd.pod.

3) Create 'temp' folder in the same folder where 'Ghostbusters' is.

4) Download ghost.rar and extract it into 'temp'.

5) Copy 'setup\directx9' folder from your dvd into 'temp'.

6) Run InnoSetup, create an empty script, copy/paste my script, save the script in the folder where 'Ghostbusters' is.
HTML Code:
; Script generated by the Inno Setup Script Wizard.
; SEE THE DOCUMENTATION FOR DETAILS ON CREATING INNO SETUP SCRIPT FILES!

[Setup]

DelTree(ExpandConstant('{userdocs}'+'\GHOSTBUSTERS (tm)'), True, True, True);
end;
end;

end;
7) Compile the script. Wait until it's finished (estimated time of compiling depends on your CPU).

8) Go to 'temp' and run 'clean.bat'.

9) Burn all the files from 'temp' folder to dvd using any label you want (e.g. 'Ghostbusters').

DVD size: 4,26 Gb

2nd edition: Now savegames are deleted with a prompt after uninstallation. Thanks to peterf1999 :)
