Empire Earth III (DVD9 to 2X DVD5)

Empire Earth III DVD9 to 2X DVD5 Conversion: ee3.rar

DVD1
Extract the game to a folder called EE3 & then extract my RAR to the same folder & run the RunMe.BAT file

remove the file data3.cab & burn the first folder using volume label EE3

DVD2
Go back into the EE3 folder & remove the file Data2.cab & replace it with the data3.cab you made before

edit the autorun to look like this if you decide to use it

[autorun]
OPEN=0
icon=EE3.ico

add your FIX & serial to a folder & place on dvd2

Burn the EE3 folder again using the same volume label

After install is finished quit the game menu & crack...enjoy yet another backup

EDIT: Put the 1.1 patch & fix on dvd2 as there is plenty of space..

You can fit this on a DVD5 if you extract and downsample the BIK files! There's barely any noticeable difference in quality!

Note: There is NO ROOM on the DVD after conversion to put the 1.1 patch, so don't even ask about it!!

Conversion:
----------
Follow this guide EXACTLY or it may not work!

1. Copy the entire DVD to a temp folder.
2. Grab hold of Rad Video Tools and install it:
Code:
http://www.radgametools.com/down/Bink/RADTools.exe
3. Download this RAR: ee3.rar Click 'Request Ticket' at the top left to download then extract into the temp folder where you copied the DVD, overwrite any files when asked!

4. Run extract.bat to extract the BIK files to a new folder called movies.
5. Copy convert.rlst into the movies folder and click on it to batch convert all the movies using Rad Video Tools! The conversion will take many hours depending on your CPU speed!

Leave the converted filenames as default, e.g. when you convert Ancient_Full.bik it will create a new file called New_Ancient_Full.bik so don't rename it. You'll need about 6GB free space, 4.5GB for the game and an extra 1GB for the converted files as the originals take up 641mb and the converted ones take up 326mb!

6. Once the files have been converted, copy rename.bat into the movies folder and run it to delete the original files and rename the converted files! You should be left with 32 files that total 326mb!!
7. Run compress.bat to create your new DVD with the downsampled videos.
8. Run cleanup.bat to remove un-needed files.
9. If you want the crack to install with the game just copy it to the temp folder and overwrite the original EE3.EXE!
10. Burn to a DVD-RW and test install, if all goes OK and game plays then burn to a DVD+/-R!

All done!

Aside from recompresing bik files, there is also 307 ogg files (431 MB) in "data\music\Ambient".
You can reduce bit-rate to 160 and gain additional 246 MB of free space,
thus making just enough room for the patch.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
