  3. I don't know about v2.0.3.9, couldn't see any precomp files in it.

So, if anyone can test and confirm if the supported versions of precomp in these CIUv2 versions extract correctly when packed by UCC it would be great.

I need to know what if at all needs to be added to the CIUv2 arc.ini

Also, please note I've never used anything other than CIUv2, so I can't say which other scripts will work with which compressor and version, please, if you try to use something other than CIUv2 with files created by UCC, post your results in this thread, good or bad, so we could start compile a list of what work and what not and perhaps do something about it.


UPDATE: February 1st 2018

That said, as of February 1st 2018 you can now download a rar archive containing most/maybe all files needed to make CIUv2.0.5g series compatible with Ultimate Conversion Compressor.

The file includes all relevant files needed and an edited arc.ini file, it can be found among the attachments in this post, it is called CIUv205gUCCAddon

All you need to do is extract it into the folder containing your CIUv2.0.5g files and replace existing files if asked, that's it.

Hello Everyone,

A long time ago (In a Galaxy Far, Far Away ), Back in November 2014 I started out doing my own conversions with a simple batch script based on Fabioddq's original script.

Over time I improved it and added some functions, in 2015 that script became something more, a full blown tool for conversion compression, it was originally released on another (no longer active) website I was a member of on January 19th 2016.

Back in July of 2016 I stopped working on the tool as it was pretty stable and I had other (personal) things to deal with, About 3 years since the beginning and almost 1.5 years after I took that break, I finally started working on the script which was now known as Ultimate Conversion Compressor (UCC).

The first version of UCC released here on FileForums was v4.1.2.1 which wasn't a big updated but enough for me to put it out there.

Since then, UCC have seen quite a few updates, big and small and I have no intention of abandoning it in the foreseeable future.

That said, the current version as for the time of these lines (v4.1.3.2) is planned to be the last big updated until I can convert the script to a much better, more versatile, more secure scripting language, UCC will still get bug fixes when needed, possibly even compressor updates (to keep it relevant) but not much more.

Anyway, let's get on with it...

I am proud to present: The Ultimate Conversion Compressor (UCC)

Ultimate Conversion Compressor V4.1.3.2 - Out Now!!!



Current Version: 4.1.3.2
Latest Build Version: Update 1.1
Scripting Language: Windows Batch Script
Beta Testers 4.1.2 Branch: ahmetbtmn, her1620 (Gatosky1620), kassane

Official Facebook Page: Click Here

I hope you find this compression script/tool useful, I know I don't use anything else.

The download link at the end of this post is a RAR 5 archive, so you'll need WinRar 5 or above to extract it, it includes all you need for the script to work, as well as a PDF format tutorial to learn how to use the script (it's not hard at all).

This script is by far the most extensive & ambitious script/project I've ever done, the scope of the code is far beyond anything I've done before, that's why I didn't release it without beta testing it as thoroughly as possible.

You can also download & read the tutorial for using UCC v4.1.3 independently or use the version of the tutorial on the UCC Wiki (links at the bottom)

You can also find a few screenshots at the bottom of this post, please be advised, final release may vary a little from the screenshots a little.

UCC v4.1.3.2 Update 1.1
Quote:
  • Bug Fix: When using CLS-Diskspan, compression would occur even if files already exist due to missing check, this is now fixed.
  • Bug Fix: Error shown during diskspan sorting procedure even though it worked correctly, fixed now
  • Bug Fix: Extra, un-needed conversion header shown during diskspan file distribution due to extra call in script, fixed now.
  • Bug Fix: When using CLS-Diskspan, autorun creation for discs 2 and above failed to create the OPEN=0 line, this is fixed now.
UCC v4.1.3.2 Update 1
Quote:
  • New Feature/Script Improvement: Added automatic media size detection function for when CLSDiskspan=y in Data#.ini file, no more need to select size in the diskspan size menu (The menu no longer display if DiscType option is set correctly in Settings.ini, size is defined by DiscType)
  • Bug Fix/Script Improvement: Fixed diskspan script, it now handles file exclusions normally without the need for previously implemented workaround.
  • INI Changes: Moved CLSDiskspan option from Data#.ini files to Settings.ini since using diskspan forces only single data (multi) archive creation, it make more sense to have it centralized as a single master switch in the Settings.ini file.
  • Bug Fix: Browse window no longer fails to load when GameTitle option have a single quote anywhere in the game name (e.g. Wasteland 2 Director's Cut)
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a bug that caused CLSDiskspan to always show the FreeArc encountered an error message at end of compression, even though there was no error in compression.
  • Bug Fix: When using CLS-Diskspan with DVD5 size parts the first disk didn't always have enough space for the Setup.exe file, this is now fixed.
  • Script Optimization: Some minor script optimizations like removal of unused lines.
UCC v4.1.3.2 Hotfix
Quote:
  • Bug Fix: Splitter sometimes produced an error when the data archive is very large because it didn't have enough time to be written to folder completely when the splitter operation started.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed bug that effected folder names and autorun.inf labels when LabelSuffix wasn't set in Settings.ini.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed bug that caused UCC to ask for ISO location selection even though the user selected to use the default location for ISO files.
  • Bug Fix/Compressor Changes: Removed FAZIP.exe from UCC since it had some sort of clash with the arc.exe and caused the default freearc methods (m2, m3, etc.) not to work, it is also not needed as FreeArc can handle all methods used by FAZIP by itself.
  • Script Improvement: UCC will now search for known illegal file/folder name characters (?)(*) in the Discs# variable and replace them with the HASHTAG (#) sign to prevent errors.
  • Script Improvement: UCC will now check if the option Discs# in Settings.ini is left blank and if so will set it to use the HASHTAG sign (#) as placeholder to prevent errors.
UCC v4.1.3.2

UCC v4.1.1
Quote:
  • Bug Fix: Fixed problem that caused the Exclude option in Data#.ini files to not work properly when not using list files (effected Exclude only, not the language ones)
UCC v4.1
Quote:
  • Initial Public Release
UCC v4.0
Quote:
  • Pre-Release Work-in-Progress version (First Evolution from simple compress.bat to full feature compressor).

Future Plans:
  1. Convert the script to a better scripting language
  2. Bug fixing over time if needed
  3. Add more compressors over time (taking requests/suggestions)

Please read the tutorial to understand all the features of UCC.

Please be advised: For CIUv2 to unpack archives created with the UCC included compressors you may need an updated arc.ini file for CIUv2 (depends on the compressor & CIUv2 version you use).

FAQ:

Q: What should I put in the Discs# variable in settings.ini if I don't know how many discs the conversion will be?

A: Although the UCC Tutorial specifiy that the Discs# variable is numeric (meaning numbers only) it isn't exactly accurate, the variable is used for conversion folder naming and some on screen display during the script, so you can either put any number in there and change it once you finish compression and know the correct number or just input a placeholder like a hashtag sign (#), you can even input multiple of these signs (##).

Q: Can you add support for compressor *input compressor name here* ?

A: Maybe, I'm willing to give it a try, just let me know the name of the compressor and where to get it and I'll look into it.

Q: Can I add new compressors to UCC myself if I wanted to?

A: No, I'm afraid not, UCC keeps it's included files compressed within the executable and only extract them temporarily during operation, even if you were to copy the file elsewhere and edit them you couldn't re-pack them into the Converter.exe file and UCC cannot read them from anywhere but the temporary folder it uses.

Q: Can you make a video tutorial?

A: Sorry, but no. I'm afraid I don't know how, nor do I have the needed tools to make an effective video tutorial, you'll have to use the WiKi or PDF tutorial for now.
I do however welcome anyone who uses UCC to make a video tutorial based on the written ones, if you do make one, please send me a link to the final product so I could add it to the OP and the UCC WiKi.

Q: I get an error at the very beginning of the compression, why?

A: If you are using V4.1.3 or V4.1.3.1, there is a bug that slipped through the beta tests that caused the described problem when selecting an output folder instead of clicking cancel to use the default one, Please download & use UCC V4.1.3.1 Hotfix to solve the issue.

Q: I Keep getting an error while compressing files with Precomp, can you help?

A: Unfortunatelly in UCC versions older than 4.1.3.2 Precomp versions 0.4.3-0.4.6 are broken, you can still use older versions of precomp without a problem.

Q: I think I did everything correctly but the Setup.exe & Setup.ico files are not moved to conversion folder, why?

A: Assuming they are indeed in the [Setup] sub-folder (otherwise you'd have gotten an error), you must have a mistake in your Settings.ini file, some variables in Settings.ini are used for folder naming and if they are left blank could cause problems with UCC copy commands.
Some of these variables are as follows: Discs#, DiscType, MediaPrefix

Hi

Better implement CLS-DiskSpan. Less i/o than splitter.

BAMsE's spliter and UltraARC merges the file back to it's original on HDD, meaning far more i/o, where DS extracting all files directly from the splitted archives, means also faster install times.

Thanks for your tool

Thanks, and you're right, I did take the time to right a tutorial with pictures, where possible and applicable.

That said, If I could I might have created a video tutorial too, I just don't have the tools or the know-how to create a decent video tutorial.

But if anybody else want to try making a video tutorial based on my written one, well, go ahead, just send me a link to the final product so I can add it to my post and possibly the wiki as well.

OK, well, it seems I messed up some of the code in version 4.1.2.1 which breaks the compression when creating a single disc conversion, I'll be uploading the previous version 4.1.2 as attachment to the OP in a little bit and the mistake will be fixed in the next version, which depends on the amount and scope of the changes will be either 4.1.2.2 or 4.1.3.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Next Version Update

Some Updates Regarding Next UCC Version

As you can read in the OP I was looking for a replacement for the Splitter program included with UCC, the current one is REV0's old splitter.exe.

The thing is, both that old one by REV0 & BamSe's Splitter.exe doesn't seem to work for me anymore, they won't do anything at all once the file to split is selected, they just closes.

My best guess is that they have a compatibility problem with latest Windows 10 versions.

So as far as the Splitter program go, I've been working the last few days on my own version or variation more like it, it is nearing completion and will be included in the next version of UCC.

As for KaKtoR's suggestion of CLS-Diskspan by Razor 12911...

Well, I've looked into it, and while it's a good addition to the script it can't function as a replacement to the splitter since unlike the splitter program it won't split a single file but will just compress files into a split multi archive, much like Winrar & 7Zip can do, it also currently not supported by any version of CIUv2 as far as I know.

I am still looking into adding it as a supported external compressor for FreeArc.

Assuming I can get Diskspan working as an external compressor for FreeArc in UCC and considering the work I invested in the new splitter program and the other more cosmetic changes I've made to UCC it looks like the next version number will be 4.1.3.

Also, as mentioned, version 4.1.2.1 have a bug with the single disc conversion creation, it's broken, version 4.1.3 will fix the issue.

Expect the new version soon, hopefully no more than a week.

Splitter released

Hi,

Well, still working on the new version of UCC, for now though, I have released the new splitter tool I created for UCC as a standalone tool.

You can find it HERE

A Merge deprived automated version of the splitter will be included in the next version of UCC

You may ask yourself what does it mean?

Well, next version of UCC will include the new splitter but it will be embedded into the UCC script rather than an external program that opens in a new window, the version embedded in the next UCC version won't have the merge function and will take the information for which files to split and if defined what size to split the files to from the UCC Settings.ini file, therefore making it potentially completely automatic without user interaction.

This is actually already implemented and tested to work by me, once I'll complete the diskspan and another thing I'm working on for UCC I'll need to find help beta testing the new version.

I'll announce it with more details when the time comes.

Beta Testers Needed

Hi,

Well, I'm happy to say it looks like I managed to overcome most, maybe even all of the difficulties I had with the new things for UCC v4.1.3.

The new version is finally completed but it needs testing, please review the new announcement near the top of the OP, I've done all I can in regard to testing on my own, now I need fresh eyes to make sure I'm not releasing a bad product.

Thank you.

Hi,

Well, unfortunately, I could only get 1 beta tester to help me test the new version of UCC but I've repeated the tests myself as well.

Anyway, if all is well after today, you can expect UCC v4.1.3 to be released in the next couple of days.

I'd also like to take the opportunity to extend a big thanks to EzzEldin16 who managed to help reduce the final size of the UCC v4.1.3 executable from over 18MB to less than 6MB (and he is also the only one who agreed to beta test it).

I will update the OP as soon as UCC v4.1.3 is ready for release with all the relevant information and credits.

Have a great day

Two questions:
1. How is split size defined? Especially for first DVD with setup.exe. Somehow variable (check setup.exe size - max size, if it's possible in batch)?
2. What pre/compressors are supported?

OK..

1. The Splitter function has nothing to do with the Setup.exe size, it is used to split large game files before compression so they will fit into smaller archives, just like REV0's & BAMSE's splitters worked, so the conversion creator need to makes sure the first disc data file isn't too big to fit with the Setup.exe when creating the list of files to include in the archive.

As for using CLS-Diskspan, The Archive splitting there is defined exactly like in the example batch file that comes with it, so there shouldn't be a problem.

Both options exist & supported.

2. Supported compressors are as follows:
precomp
precomp038
precomp040
precomp041
precomp042
precomp043
precomp045
precomp046
srep
srep64
lzma64
lzma2
msc
rar
7zip

and of course, independent of FreeArc and all other compressors, there's support for Rar & 7Zip compression.

There are also over 50 compressors presets.

These will all be in the Tutorial for the new version.

I know how split works. Why split files before compression? It is very unlikely, today you compress first, then split the compressed archive.

BAMsE's splitter worked this way, at least you could make it so.
- Compress game files
- Split with m0 option (store)

Ok just saw there is [Other] split option.
Suggestion: Let users type in mb instead of kb

Well, technically I guess you can use the splitter in UCC like that as well, to split the archive after creation, but as of now it will require to create a pre-compressed archive before using UCC, might try and change that.

As for the splitter itself, yes, there is other/custom option to set the size, but it IS in MB, not KB, for 1.5GB you need to type 1500, that's in MB.
