Happy new year to all!
Improved the analysis. Results should be identical, but the analysis should be faster now.
If a VTS is completely unreferenced, the cleanup of its cells is now skipped (since it will be replaced anyway).
Pressing F1 now opens “RipIt4Me Help.chm” if this file is located in the same directory as RipIt4Me, otherwise it opens the web version. The help file is included in the installer.
Incorporated the on-the-fly patching code to make DVD Decrypter more robust to badly messed IFOs. Thanks to the anonymous developer who provided that code, without this, RipIt4Me would not be able to handle some of the latest DVDs. There is a new key in the ini file to control this. DecrypterParsingMode=1 is the default, which enables the patching. Set it to 0 for the normal DVD Decrypter behavior.
If there were no BOVs in the DVD when it was first scanned, it will not be rescanned in subsequent loading operations while in wizard or 1-click mode.
Added some broad error catching code to avoid crashes during the loading of titlesets and the analysis. If a fatal error occurs during the loading of a titleset (one that would normally crash the app) the code recovers and simply removes the titleset from the rip. If such an error occurs during the analysis, the app also recovers and tries to do the best it can to keep on going normally. A warning is issued, however.
Removed the error messages for bogus numbers of PGCs and skipping the rest of the VTS…
If for some reason the code to detect the state of the drive does not work, RipIt4Me will try to use the “old” code. This means you won’t need to have UseOldCheckCode set to 1 in the .ini file. Again, this is a temporary fix until we determine what it is exactly that makes the new code fail.
Fixed the bug that caused SPTI to be detected as unavailable if the first drive was locked.
When blanking titlesets, the TMAP table was not fully removed, this is now fixed.
Fixed a bug that could cause the “Jump to menu” function to not work right in wizard mode (1-click was OK).
When blanking a VTS, or replacing it with a generic one, the correct video format is now used (NTSC if the DVD is NTSC, PAL if it is PAL). This, hopefully, will fix some playability problems seen on some players.
In some rare cases, the jump to menu function was missing the menu (when the highlights were transparent when active). This has been fixed.
Fixed a potential small bug in Step 1 which could cause a crash when canceling.
Fixed a problem that occurred when an exit command was encountered during the analysis.
