I did not understand your question.
DiskSpan_GUI is 95% configurable by editing the DS_Methods.ini file in the Resources folder.

DiskSpan_GUI 1.0.0.4/1.0.0.5 has support for different plugins for XTool. It is in the custom method selection tab in the group referring to XTool 2020.
Could you share the link to this plugin for me to get more information?

Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question.

Hi, thanks for the response, the link to the plugin is here:
https://fileforums.com/showpost.php?...64&postcount=6

After reading it again it just claims to give support for LZ4, so since the LZ4 switch is already implemented I guess it's not needed.

I think so.
Using DiskSpan_GUI, for LZ4 it may be necessary to test with different versions of the LZ4 library by replacing the library in the "Resources\PRE\XTool_2020\Libraries\LZ4" folder.

I'm sorry for asking potentially dumb question...

I have a big collection of games, some of them taking a lot of space, so I'm trying to see if I can repack a few of them. I'm doing this for my self, not for the purpose of releasing or posting on any sites/forums.

I usually would just use FreeArc, WinUha, 7z etc. But some of the games I have would not get compressed at all or the compression would not be very efficient. So I've become curious about how people actually "repack" stuff and discovered this site. However, cannot find a clear and simple solution on the subject of how to unpack what's been packed with DiskSpan or UltraArc

I've used DiskSpan GUI to repack a game. I used xlib+srep+lzm, which seems to be producing much better compressions results than any other method I've tried.

Now I have these files: Data1a-01.bin -> Data1a-05.bin and a Setup.dll

How do I make the installer script unpack those files? Simply placing the .bin files besides the setup.exe doesn't do anything at all.

I'm at loss here

You need records.ini file (Diskspan GUI creates this file automatically).

Edit: Oh he deletes his post, so my post seems pointless now

I'm so sorry. I wanted to edit this post and delete another, pushed the wrong button... One too many forums opened simultaneously + very tired.

1000 thanks for pointing me to the right direction.

I didn't know that records.ini is missing and is necessary Was using DiskSpan GUI on Windows 7, it would compress just fine, then give me an error which I ignored (dumb me), unaware that the records.ini is not being created...

Switched to Windows 10 and it worked flawlessly.

Thank you again

There is no such thing as a dumb question. If you do not know something then you ask and not only will you get an answer you will also learn something new, then you can answer the same question if someone else asks it.

Why?
Is there any problem?
is Xtool still running?

All executables in the temp folder are checked if they are running and processes are closed when an error occurs or is still running after successfully installing (if this worked correctly).
