Thanks you senseman, works fine!

@For the guru
DVD5 seems to be possible here but without the game Alice1 (the old Alice American McGee's), with only 1 language and resampling at least the biggest bik file.

I'm not able to do an installer with inno for that, maybe peterf1999 can do it as he did with Duke Nukem Forever. Is the same conversion!

Anyway my steps:
- Delete all other languages file into all sub-directory into Alice2\AliceGame\CookedPC\Maps\Chapters (i have DEU, FRA, INT, ESN, ITA and JPN language's files). Delete all files you don't want (eg: you are italian, delete DEU/FRA/INT/ESN/JPN). You save ~500Mb
- Resampled two bik files C1_111.bik (eg: for me now 83Mb) and C1_116.bik (eg: for me now 58Mb) saving ~86Mb
- Move Movies folder (no need compression because the bik files)
- Fire-up FreeArc and compress Alice2 folder (without Movies). From 5,79Gb to 3,31Gb.

Final iso with .arc file and Movies folder has ~37Mb free, just enough for the installer ;-)

Compress Alice2 folder (with original Movies)
Delete folders:
DirectX
Redistributable
Dotnet

This is what you get:

AMR.jpg

Italian Conversion only

For other language, you must edit localization.ini in archive

e.g. English only:

Code:
[LOCALES]
;de=1
en-us=1
;es=1
;fr-fr=1
;it=1
;ja=1

I understand the error! The main problem is peterf1999 has the complete collection (which includes Alice1) while my version is the standard retail without Alice1.

The main differences are:
- Support\Alice Madness Returns_code.exe and not "Alice Madness Returns The Complete Collection_code.exe" (the same with uninstaller)
- in the localization.ini file:
For standard version:
Quote:
game=Alice Madness Returns
For complete collection:
Quote:
game=Alice Madness Returns The Complete Collection

edit: this fu**ing game doesn't want work! Here is my version:
Quote:
Alice Madness Returns_code.exe
Alice Madness Returns_uninst.exe
In localization.ini:
Quote:
game=Alice Madness Returns
The root and the support folder's:



Start autorun -> Select Install -> Put my serial -> When i press Next the error appears:


another question:
autorun.dat modified by peterf1999 is 2,64 MB (2.775.552 byte).
Why if i open it, make nothing, save with another name the new file is about 1,03 MB (1.085.440 byte)? (and obviously seems to have some problem?)
I have Orca 5.0.6764.0.

Peterf1999, here is my autorun.dat, can you look at it? I tried to modify it as you did in your but i always got an error (after run EASetup.exe)
Thanks

I added the missing lines from peters autorun.dat, to yours, so that it will use files from your version & not the complete collection ( from peter's). I looked thru both autorun.dat files and tried to spot any other changes but didnt see anymore. And did your replace the easetup file from peters post #2 as well ?

Try it out with your version & see if it works. please post back if it worked or not.

Also im wondering IF you need to delete ALL foreign language files from ALL folders in installed game, before compressing with freearc?
