I think it should only work for you using the command below in Edit referring to "Command prompt commandline to run in installation":
Code:
copy "{src}\Extras\*" "{app}\"
The above command must copy all the contents of the Extras folder that will be next to Setup.exe (Or on the disk that contains the corresponding Data#bin if you save the conversion on discs) to the game installation folder.
If the folder doesn't exist it will fail then you should use something like this:
Code:
((md "{app}\Extras")&(copy "{src}\Extras\*" "{app}\Extras"))

Simply paste the commandline in Edit for the method that should work.

Question MacOS compatibility

Is this program compatible with MacOS?
If not, could you recommend any good compressor tool for MacOS?

Thanks already, it works very good on Windows 11!

Talking

I meant something with algorithms that have way lower ratio and different algorithms that can be used for different file types for better compression.
Is this also possible with 7-Zip?

But thanks anyway, definitely better than the built in ZIP "compressor"

Own extension

Instead of output as .bim can we change it to any other extension. Like .fg and also the filename like fg01.bin
Fg02.bin

To change the file extension you need to run DiskSpan GUI in DEVELOPER mode and change the file name in the "Data #" tab. But be aware that you need the numeral "1" to indicate which value will be incremented on each disk split (The last character "1" is the character that will be incremented.
Code:
Using name: "Data1b-01.bin" generate files: disc 1 = Data1b-01.bin, disc 2 = Data1b-02.bin, disc 3 = Data1b-03.bin, etc
If you use name like "Data.dsg" without including "1" character, ".001" will be included after the extension.
You can use something like Data1.bin, Game1.dsg, Data-001.dat, etc (You cannot use destination without an extension like Game01).
Just be aware that you have renamed the destination file of each "Data #" tab with a different name so they don't overwrite the previous one.

Database Fix:
Open file ..\\Resources\DATABASE\Database.ini" and edit the text "xtool_plugin" to simply "xtool" in the "[Database: Far Cry 3]" and "[Database: Far Cry 4]" sections.

Also delete the "[Database: Unravel 2]" section (The xtool plugin no longer supports the Unravel 2 game) and change the text "xtool_plugin:munravel1" to simply "xtool:munravel" in the 2 method lines of the "[Database: Unravel]".

Run "DiskSpan GUI" in "DEVELOPER MODE" and reload game from database.
