Basically all you need to include in the archive you upload is the Setup.exe, Setup.ico
autorun.inf & the Ultraarc folder, plus instructions on where to place any redists if there are any on either first or last dvd ( conversion folders ), users wont need any of your bin files, they would create them using their own game files, like all other conversions posted here.

Look at any of the conversions in this forum, download any one that has instructions similar to what you want & look at the contents of the archive. That way you'll have a better idea of whats needed to post your conversion(s).

good luck

Arc decompression using inno setup

So im kinda new to this kind of stuff and I was wondering if you could use inno setup compiler to make an installer which extracts or decompresses .arc files.
I would really appreciate if any of you guys would lend a hand

check conversion tutorial sub-section, especially all the sticky topics.
you'll find all you need there to start doing your own conversions ( installers )

Hi guys, i need some help with translations for my Metro Exodus project, is a quote from the russian philosopher Dostoevsky:

Quote:
PortugueseBR: "Viver sem esperança é deixar de viver"
English: "To live without hope is to cease to live"
French: "Vivre sans espoir, c'est cesser de vivre" - Google
Italian: "Vivere senza speranza significa rinunciare a vivere" - Google
German: "Ohne Hoffnung zu leben heißt aufzuhören zu leben" - Thanks to Kaktor
Spanish: "Vivir sin esperanza es dejar de vivir" - Thanks to omdj
Czech: Žiť bez nádeje znamená prestať žiť - Google
Polish: "Żyć bez nadziei jest przestać żyć" - Google (I'm not sure 100%)
Russian: "Жить без надежды - значит перестать жить" - Google
Thank you!

Yep, indeed. Seems that Google has a better algorithm in these days. But I was afraid to translate in some languages like German, Czech and Polish.
I will translate with Google and post here if need some correction.

Thanks mate and omdj too!

EDIT

I got the translation on other websites through the internet, just Polish i'm not sure.

Hi,
i got a question about UltraArc convert
I've often gotta problems about size calculation needed on drive c during instalation test.
example : while install the result convert method lzma+srep the sizes more or less the 10 dvd5
size on drive c only free left 10gb, it appears error isdone.dll pop up
while on drive c i gave free space 50gb. then succesfull installed (no error)
So how i predict free size needed on drive c during installation to be work?
and if not using method how much free size needed on drive c so it could be worked?

It has nothing to do with method you used.

If you use split feature with ultraarc, you should have 2 x game size free

hi kaktor.


so do you mean if the original size 67gb splitted with ultraARC the result will be 22 gb needed free space on drive c = 134 GB?

Only if you use treshold=100 (which I recommend because output will be smaller).

If you leave it on 30 (standard) then it's not the x2 size of the game (it depends on size then)

I'm trying to make complete Arkham Asylum with all DLCs. Been using ISCAB, but the damn thing gives me a headache. Every time I get an error message I also get layout.bin with 0B.
When I finally removed and replaced files, tried to put additional files and directories inside. Ended up with empty cab files now.
Is there a program that can manipulate InstallShield cabinet files like i6comp did? No way I'm gonna start this all over with ISCAB.
