Rest of FF Games

Finally i finished with this series, here are the last 3 games. The biggest one with two methods (Ztool and Xtool). The ztool version was created 2 weeks ago but was not posted because of testing it ingame.

Tools used: Ultraarc 2900 R5, Srep 3.9.2, Binkpack, Lolz, Xtool 0.9 & Ztool

Computer: 4 cores 3.9Ghz (4.3 boost) + 8GB Ram + SSD

All games are from Steam (Steam Editions) with all DLCs

1st step before compression: I removed all duplicated videos and foreign voice files. At first, for removing the duplicated videos you can follow my easy steps:
1. Enter in /datas/movies/, once there enter the first folder, look if there is a "us" folder.
2. Select all files on the "us" folder, right click and cut the files, go one step back to the "jp" folder and paste them there (overwrite the files)
3. After overwriting the files they remain selected, so now cut them again and move them again to the "us" folder (this will delete the files without looking for names).
4. Do the same on all other movie folders. Cutting and pasting was faster for me then open up the two folders and looking for same name archieves.

2nd step before compression (Optional):
This one will give you around 600MB less in space by removing voice files
1. Go to the /Datas/sound/resources/Voice folder.
2. Remove all foreign folders (fr,de,it,etc...) and leave only us & jp folders untouched (this is for english)

WARNING about World of Final Fantasy (Thanks KaktoR !!! ): Just in case you have these files:
Code:
\resource\finalizedCommon\mithril\effect\csv\mo000 _テンプレ_4足(小)_eft.csh
\resource\finalizedCommon\mithril\effect\csv\mo000 _テンプレ_4足(大)_eft.csh
\resource\finalizedCommon\mithril\effect\csv\mo000 _テンプレ_2足(大)_eft.csh
Seems that ultraarc gives an error with those files, on my version i dont have these files but if you have them just take them out of the folder before compressing. A solution if you use inno setup is to add them to the setup.exe, they are small so it shouldn´t be a problem. Just add a entry for every file in your inno script under the files section, it should look like this example:

Code:
Source: "C:\blablabla\mo000 _テンプレ_4足(小)_eft.csh"; DestDir: "{app}\resource\finalizedCommon\mithril\effect\csv\"; Flags: ignoreversion
Just edit the correct path of the source and do it for all 3 files.

With this 3 games i finished with this series. Now i will add some games this week that are not on the list like Quantum Break, Hitman, etc.... Maybe next week i will start with another serie (Resident evil is the first coming to my mind because its not complete on the index hehehe).
