Alan Wake (DVD9 -> DVD5)

Alan Wake DVD9 -> DVD5 1 spoken lang (supporting 1.03 update)

NOTE: Files needed can be found in Post #36

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the very first biggest greetz fly to yener90 'coz this conversion uses his CI source.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


UPDATE: I'm sorry for wasting your time on converting biks via previous bik_conversion_v.2.rar.
Proper bik_conversion_v.3.rar greatly improves video quality and (paradoxically) straightly reduces conversion time from ~16 to ~8.5 hour on [email protected]
I strongly recommend bik converson via bik_conversion_v.3.rar to gain near-original quality.


You can update the game to 1.03 and it still fits on DVD5

1. Install the game and RADTools


2. Download bik_conversion_v.3.rar and extract to {game_folder}\data\videos folder.
Note: See Post #36 for file.


3. Go to {game_folder}\data\videos and run 1#resample.rlst

You can pause it and resume later.To do this click 'STOP' button in RAD Batch Editor. Let Bink Video Compressor finish actually converted file. Click 'SAVE AS...' button in RAD Batch Editor and save as 1#resample.rlst. Next time you run them, it'll start from next file.
If you must abort conversion immediately there is 2nd method. Click 'STOP' button on RAD Batch Editor and it'll generate "# Error returned:" message at the beginning of line with actually converted file. Delete "# Error returned:" text, click 'SAVE AS...' button and save as 1#resample.rlst. Now click 'CANCEL' button on Bink Video Compressor and answer 'NO' if asking about keeping partially converted file. You can run it later and it starts conversion from last converted file.


4. Run 2#audio_###.rlst (where ### is your preferred lang for cutscenes).


5. Run 3#copy_not_resampled.bat.


6. Download AW_DVD5_v.3.rar and extract to TEMP folder.
Note: See Post #36 for file.


7. Go to {game_folder} and move

Code:
thridparty
to

Code:
TEMP

8. Go to {game_folder}\data, delete unwanted lang files (remember to leave i.e. english if your language isn't spoken one):

Code:
ep999-000-##.bin
ep999-000-##.rmdp

9. Go to {game_folder}\data, run FreeArc and compress:

Code:
Config
*.bin
*.rmdp
Code:
archive name: data1.cab
compression: -mx -ld800
make EXE: not checked

10. Go to {game_folder}\data\videos\converted, run FreeArc and compress its content

Code:
archive name: data2.cab
compression: -m0*
make EXE: not checked
* If you want to gain some extra space (i.e. for soundtrack from 1.02 update) use -mx -ld800 compression instead


11. Go to {game_folder}, run FreeArc and compress its content (without data folder)

Code:
archive name: data3.cab
compression: -mx -ld800
make EXE: not checked
12. Make iso/burn content of TEMP folder with any label (final size: 4.25GB)

scr1.jpg

scr2.jpg

UPDATE:

See screenshots for differences (thin, black lines are not visible during on-game playback):

o_250_cine_3500.jpg oryginal
s_250_cine_3500.jpg previous (bik_conversion_v.2.rar)
n_250_cine_3500.jpg new (bik_conversion_v.3.rar)

o_480_cine_3500.jpg oryginal
s_480_cine_3500.jpg previous (bik_conversion_v.2.rar)
n_480_cine_3500.jpg new (bik_conversion_v.3.rar)

UPDATE 2: Italian lang added to bik_conversion_v.3.rar (108 downloads before)

Note: See Post #36 for file.

What is the final size of the iso?
I ask because the quality of the video comes out a little bad ...
In the file "1#resample.rlst" command "/d44" means 44% of the original quality?
If so, then the iso should be around 4.3 GB and I can not raise the quality of the video.

In my case it's 4.28GB but there is some margin of error when using percentage conversion, so you can't increase /d44 because you may not fit on DVD5.
On the other hand you may convert them to [email protected] with 53% of original bitrate to get really smoother fullscreen playback and still fit on DVD5. The problem is it takes much more time.
Anyway you may try - just open 1#resample.rlst in notepad, find and replace ([CTRL] + [H]) all
Code:
/d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
with
Code:
/d53 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /a25 /(1024 /)576 /b8 /c1

Convert DLC video files does not work. It pops up a window with the message "Could't create temporary file". It helps to change the last eight lines:

Code:
Bink dlc1\cine_100000.bik dlc1\converted\cine_100000.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc1\cine_100100.bik dlc1\converted\cine_100100.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc1\cine_100300.bik dlc1\converted\cine_100300.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc1\cine_100400.bik dlc1\converted\cine_100400.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc2\cine_200000.bik dlc2\converted\cine_200000.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc2\cine_200100.bik dlc2\converted\cine_200100.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc2\cine_200200.bik dlc2\converted\cine_200200.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
Bink dlc2\cine_200300.bik dlc2\converted\cine_200300.bik /d44 /m3.0 /l-1 /p8 /b8 /c1
The file "3#copy_not_resampled.bat" has the format in the "UCS-2 Little Endian" and therefore the script will not run for me. It works if convert to ANSI.

Everything is almost perfect ... Bik video files during the play look as if they were to 20fps. They are not perfectly smooth as the original files. I used RADTools v1.99n. I guess anything can not help

I've noticed some of original biks has so low bitrate that covering to 44% makes'em blocky as hell. I'm working on it to use original ones and still fit on DVD5

Update nearly done. Greatly improved video quality and (paradoxically) conversion time reduced straightly Please wait until I watch all videos and be sure nothing is wrong as lately

OK - now is perfect!
Those black thin lines [as in the pictures] are not seen in the game! Videos are now smooth as the original with 30fps. If someone is playing Alan Wake on PC using pad, away from the monitor, then will not notice any difference in video quality.
Great work.
And a wonderful, hard work of our computers in the conversion of videos ;]
Sorry for my english :P

@Schabik

The installer cannot find the 'videos' folder (step4?), move/copy 'videos' folder where setup.exe is located to fix the issue.
