Best Way to handle Images (Bin, ISO, NRG etc)

Unread post by Papabaer » 27 May 2008, 21:36

Hi,

Since the last Update removed all CUE-Extensions and there is no way to prevend ECC to Parse those large Files, what is now the best (or only) strategy to add them so that they are working correctly with the Emulator?

Some of the Emulators can handle ISO/BIN Images directly (ePSXe) some also support CUE (with iso+ogg or mp3) (Mednafen). So some images consists of a small data part and a big music part for this images it is great to make this iso+ogg or mp3 to save space. it would be also possible to make one Image File of this but this would raise the space needed. for example "Dungeon Master - Theron's Quest" for the PC Engine CD is in ISO+Ogg-Format 34 MB (depends of the quality of the ogg-files). if i now would make a real image of this it would be 700 MB.

so what shall i do now to make them usefull for ECC (no cues) and space saving?

Greetings

@Andreas,

Can there be an option in the commandline config screen with an checkbox 'use CUE file'?, then let it work like this as example:

User parses TESTISO.ISO and ECC executes [filename].CUE ==> TESTISO.CUE

So you only have to change the 'whatever' extension of the filename (BIN, ISO, IMG) ==> TO: CUE !!

I think this is a cool feature, what do you think?

Hi Phoenix,

this sounds great. since in the beginning someone uses for iso+ogg or mp3 the following naming convention, i use it for all the isos of that kind:

Gamename - Track 01.iso
Gamename - Track 02.ogg
Gamename - Track 03.ogg and so on

ah and what is with the PC Engine CD ISOs whitch use 2 iso tracks (mostly it's the second and the last track)? does ECC parse both?

Hi Papabaer,

ECC parse both but only one can be run at the same time, maybe a script would help :smartass:

- Are the filenames the same??
- Wich commandline should be given to the PC Engine emulator to load 2 ISO's, have you got an example?
