there was another thred about dirt3 which listed a different conversion, but because of the setup.exe, chaninstall.xml+security catalog file, when you changed the game.msi file for 2xdvd5, the install would abort because the md5 hash check wouldnt match. An easy getaround for that was to change the autorun from open=setup.exe to open=game.msi.

Tha game would install, but you couldnt choose language, and the dependicies ( DX, Openal, Rapture3d ) would have to be installed manually.

Peter always finds a way around these maddening conversions, when the norm doesnt seem to work. By either re-writing a new setup.exe to skip over the checking of those md5 hashes, whatever.

Always learning more & more from peter...

thanks bud.

the md5 checksums are located in the chaininstall.xml file and tied to ChainInstall.xml.cat & Setup.exe. ( see attached file )

Weird, I find nothing related to MD5 in setup.exe; not even constants related to the MD5 algorithm (a small implementation, for IBM DB2, attached in source). Are you sure that the MD5 checksum is computed in Setup.exe?

i know the md5 values are within the chaininstall.xml, and changing any of the corresponding files->md5 value results in an abort error coming up when trying to use the modified game.msi. Even after changing the msi file as needed, and recalculating the md5 for that changed file, entering its new value in the chaininstall.xml stil causes the error. Probably because the security catalog file has a specific value for the xml file ?

I think peter's conversion just skips that check altogether, and allows the rest of the conversion to continue. ( guessing here as i dont know for sure, and peter doesnt have PM enabled so i can ask about that privately ) Still learning how he does some of these conversions that arent just a simple edit of msi file, or uses newest version that iscab can no longer handle.

He probably doesn't even realize the files originated from you.

Not much we can do but delete his post and Ive also banned him for being a retard. (... and for posting about warez of course.)

I also edited your post to remove the quoted link.

TOTAL POST EDIT! :P

Tested and aproved @ Win7 Ultimate X64, no Service Pack and s**t - and CRC checked! :P
The new MSI installer also installs (no pun intended) G4WL, DirectX and Rapture3D installers - and obviously they'll skip if already installed.

Now it's time to (mess... er) try the 1xDVD5 conversion!



BTW, peterf1999... There's something that annoy me a little in your custom MSI installers: The "box cover" as the "wizard big image", the same happening with your Bulletstorm's DVD9-2-2xDVD5 conversion. Is there some way to (us, normal and mere mortal humans) change that image? If yes, how?
