Buy the US DVD Limited Edition, it has 4,6Gbytes and fit on a DVD5 to
make your Backup copy. Or use 2xDVD5. This is NOT MSI installer's and
simple asks for the next CAB-file.

The data*.cab can be descompressed with i6comp...
I´ve read the tutorial here but it don´t says nothing about delete archives (foreign languages) and compress the files in a new cab...
Sorry for may bad english

DONE !!!


@echo off
i6comp d -g4 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g5 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g6 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g10 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g11 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g13 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g15 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g16 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g17 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g23 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g24 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g26 data1.cab *.*
pause

ADVICE: This script is ONLY for spanish. For other language do "icomp6 g data1.cab", numerate the groups (0..), select the languages to delete
I´ve got only one problem, at install appears a crc error in 2200*.mod file... the solve is extract only this archive (from original) and replace it in the new cabs.

Final size: 4.3 giga

Only there is a rule ... uses a safety copy

1.- Extract all cab files and data1.hdr from iso (ultraiso or similar)
2.- Disable attribute read only... data1.hdr too...
3.- Use icomp6.exe (itīs good for spanish version... I suppose for german too)
to see the files.
In DOS mode (or script)

Quote:
i6comp g data1.cab
results:

We arrange the groups: "Kernel Placeholder" is 0, "EngineCommonPlaceHolder" is 1 ...

We remember the foreign language groups...
In spanish version are
Quote:
4,5,6,10,11,13,15,16,17,23,24 and 26
In german
Quote:
4,5,7,10,11,12,15,17,18,23,24 and 27
4.- Empty this groups
Quote:
i6comp d -g4 data1.cab*.*
this command delete group 4 from data1.cab

Then execute this macro (german version)
Quote:
@echo off
i6comp d -g4 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g5 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g7 data1.cab *.*

pause
i6comp d -g23 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g24 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g27 data1.cab *.*
pause
5.- Look the new size and use the new cab files and hdr with the rest of files that compose the game and save it in a new iso file.

6.- Install it... only in german... the rest of languages fail.

Iīve got only one problem, at install appears a crc error in 2200*.mod file... the solve is extract only this archive (from original) and replace it in the new cabs...It is possible that it does not appear.

Sorry for my bad english

Yes, itīs crititcal... but I donīt know if it happens to everybody...
Iīve posted this mini-guide in other forum and nobody had this error... only me

The solution is extract this archive from original cab and adding it in the new created (maybe a problem with crc).

Look at i6comp commands... i donīt remember wich one is used to extract files...

Donīt be afraid and try it... always with safety copy

Conversion DVD5 English

This is the procedure I used (only english).

1) Unpack ISO with ultraISO
2) Use i6comp (The *.cab and *.hdr files have to be in the same folder as i6comp)

Code:
i6comp g data1.cab
Code:
InstallShield 6.x Cabinet Util
Version 0.2 -] fOSSiL & Morlac - 2000 [-

FF - Index of the first file in the group (0-based)
LF - Index of the last file in the group

i6comp d -g7 data1.cab *.*
pause

pause
i6comp d -g12 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g13 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g16 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g17 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g18 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g24 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g26 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g27 data1.cab *.*
echo All done
Unfortunately the filesize is still too big to fit on a DVD5. But not to worry, there are still other things that can be deleted. In the following steps I'll tell you what to delete and why we can delete it.

4) Delete everything in the "directx" folder.
[DirectX can be found on the net and on any another game]

5) Delete everything in the "documentation" folder except the english one
[Why would you need the french documentation if you live in the UK/US and vice versa.]

6) Delete everything in the "Prereq" folder
Now this one contains 3 files:
- dotnetfx.exe = .NET Framework v1.1
- NetFx64.exe = .NET Framework v2.0
- WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe = Windows Installer 3.1
These files can be downloaded from the internet. The Toolset needs the .NET Framework.

7) Delete the video drivers in the "VideoDrivers" folder
[can be found on the net]

8) Burn on DVD (size = 4.33GB)

I've recently bought a Gigabyte video card which came with Neverwinter Nights 2 bundled into the package. This version also contains Italian language (that is, this is multi-5 version), so if you want to backup this version, you need to slightly modify Nicolo's batch file (post #14):

i6comp d -g5 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g6 data1.cab *.*
pause
i6comp d -g7 data1.cab *.*

i6comp d -g8 data1.cab *.*

kxp, I don't know if you're gonna read this, anyway... You must put all CAB files and data1.hdr in the same folder. Then, run BAT file to edit them all at the same time.

I hope this could be useful for you or anyone.

Thanx voodoo_nbgd! Your script worked just fine.
