DiskSpan GUI v2.0.0.6 (2022)

Updated DiskSpan GUI to v2.0.0.6 in the first post.
Special thanks to @KaktoR for all the work testing compressions and creating the DiskSpan GUI database settings.
Code:
Changes:
- Updated XTool precompressor from v0.3.21 to v0.3.22.
- Updated 7-Zip compressor from v19.00 to v21.06 (2021-11-24).
- Updated key list for Unreal Engine games (with some news keys).
- Added support for constants in CallAfter and CallBefore files.
- Added new list of predefined methods in methods "Predefined" tab (Scroll down to display old list). 
- Added support for Oodle 9 codecs using "oo2core_9_win64.dll" (If there are already games that use this compression, or for when they exist). 
- Added option to directly call the command prompt using "cmd:" (without quotes) at the beginning of the CallAfter/CallBefore file name with commandline. 
- Added new "Lock methods preset" checkbox in "Developer Mode".
  >> If this checkbox is checked when configuring, when DiskSpan GUI is run in normal mode,
  >> has more than one preset and more than one method selection combobox, when changing the preset in one of the comboboxes by holding CTRL key, 
  >> all other methods comboboxes will be switched to the same index. 
- Added new edits "Source and "Destination" in "Data #" tabs to compress files that are not inside the game folder.
  >> Both edits support Inno Setup constants like {userdocs} and if you use {app} in the edit source the game folder path will be used.
  >> The edit "Destination" is the value that will be included in "Records.ini" for extracting the compressed file from the current tab.
  >> If left blank the default value will be used depending on whether it is a game collection or not. 
- Fixed OK button bug in method selection page after change tab to Download tab e back to other tab.
- Updated DiskSpan GUI database to version 1.0.2.9 (Thanks to KaktoR).

Hello, for a next update would it be possible when we update the games database that there is either a message indicating which game is added or have a small (*) after or before the name ?

I'll see if it's possible. But it might take a while, I'm out of time lately

Yes, it's a false positive.
For conversions that don't use WemTool you can delete "WemTool .exe" from "Resources\TOOLS\WemTool" folder

Hello!

I am incredibly new to compression. I have lurked here for the last couple of weeks and months and read lots of stuff and tried out many different tools. And only now, with this Diskspan GUI Tool I actually feel this nice feeling of a "breakthrough" haha, finally I can make sense of a few of these things that just previously seemed like a random assortment of letters, so thank you very much for making this tool, Cesar82!

I have a question, though. I would like to use this tool for personal Backups and project files (with a variety of unconventional filetypes); so not really game repacking only. As far as I understood, I need to use an installer script to get a Setup.exe, such that whatever I am repacking can be installed. However, I am stuck on where to go from here, can you recommend a script that I can use that just extracts the bin files into the same folder?
I have no need for installers, no need for fancy menus, settings, Registry Entries or neat GUI stuff for the things that I intend to archive. I am a Data Hoarder, and I just would like to strongly and effectively compress many different files to access some time later. Is that possible to get a simple "extractor", or am I wrong with this tool?

TLDR: Is there a way to turn it into a simple, Self-Extracting Archive?

Thank you very much for your assistance, and I apologize for this long text... I am a little stuck and I hope it's okay to ask here for someone who'd like to help!

- Crim

You can extract with DiskSpan GUI aswell. Go to "Tools" -> "Unpacker".

You can just copy DiskSpan_GUI.exe to the DISK_1 folder which will only work as unpacker when run

Okay wow this is gorgeous! A game changer for me right now haha. Thanks a ton!
If I'd like to use the commandline to allow for batch decompression, I can just read into DiskSpan itself without the GUI?

hello, I just tested the 2007 version for God of war, so I loaded the preset for god of war. I start the process. All goes well and ends up being a success. However when I run my setup I get this error message.



how to decompress it correctly?
I have done several tests and each time I have the same message.

@Crimzan, No. DiskSpan GUI does not support command line for this purpose.

@fabrieunko, I don't have time for any tests, but the source code changed in WPI (DSG) is practically the same used in CIU, and from what I've seen it seems to be working with CIU, so it should work with WPI as wel.

@kuyhaa, Password for Data files must be added in each Data file tab (Developer Mode).
In the General tab you must include the password for Setup.dll and merge Records.ini and you must also use this same password in the script.iss before compressing the Setup.exe.
If WPI is running on 32-bit systems, it will still not decompress most methods as the decompressor executables are mostly x64 architecture and will not run on 32-bit systems.
