    EDIT: NEW THREAD http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=138128

    The use of this little tool I made is to decompress the system menu ASH files easliy without dragging and dropping or without using cmd.
    This is the first time I use batches so please be nice with me cause I wasn't born in the DOS years and now with AutoIt GUI (only 13 years old)

    Here is the readme from Batch-ASH

    Code:
    Batch-ASH Readme
    
    Use of this:
    The use of these tool is to decompress ASH files used in the Wiis system menu without the all the fuss of drag and dropping or using cmd.
    
    Instructions:
    
    Unzip the exe of the ZIP in the same folder as you app_out folder (Example: lets say your 00000001_app_out folder is in C:\CSM. That means you would have to extract the contents of the ZIP in C:\CSM.
    MAKE SURE YOUR FOLDER NAME IS: 00000001_app_OUT
    Use Batch-ASH.exe to select any ASH file.
    
    
    Notes:
    This is the first time I do any autoit so don't go saying it's crap cause I'm only 13
    I did not make any command for \html\EU2\iplsetting.ash because it doesn't work with ASH.exe cause it's an ARC renamed to ASH.
    
    Changelog:
    
    v0.1
    Initial release
    
    v0.2
    Added the ALL.bat which runs all other BAT files (You still need all of the bat files in the same folder)
    
    v1.0
    Created a nice GUI to choose wich ASH to decompress using AutoIt
    Probbably the end of this tool unless you can give me some ideas to improve it at: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=136146
    
    v1.1
    Removed all batches cause they are now intergrated into Batch-ASH.exe
    
    More Info:
    
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=136146
    for ASH.exe download here: http://crediar.no-ip.com/ASH_v0.1.rar
    
    To come:
    - 1 batch file to run them all (DONE)
    - an interface in Autoit letting you choose wich ASH files to decompress (DONE)
    - A program to:
    - decompress ASH files using ASH.exe by Crediar (already done check my sig)
    - encode ASH files using yaz0enc
    - replace a TPL
    - extract a .app
    - compress a .app
    
    All that just by ticking check boxes so that even n00bs will be able to make their own csm
    
    Credits:
    Crediar for the ASH.exe
    and c0mputeRb0y for the batch files and my "hard" work

    That's why I put hard inbetween "". I just thought it might be helpful for some people who don't know how to do it or can't be bothered but if your not happy then go somewhere else cause I was only trying to help people who can't do it. You know not everybody is a computer genius

    This is because iplsetting.ash isn't actually a ash file. Its a U8 archive renamed ash. just use u8tool to unpack it [​IMG]

    Crediars Ash decompress is easy to use to, simple as:

    -Right click on a ASH file
    -Left Click on "Open With > "Choose a Default Program"
    -Click browse, find the ASH.exe
    -Click ok

    Now whenever you double click (open) an ash file it will decompress it with just 2 clicks [​IMG]

    (If you want to decompress them all at once, "Select all" "Enter" )

    That's realy nice, althought I think I'll stay at Ctrl+A and then Drag and Drop [​IMG]. But if you have free time, here's an idea for you:

    Can you make one for the yaz0enc.exe? This App will compress back the decompressed .ash-Files, and never had a problem after compressing...AND the .app-Size is smaller...but you have to rename the files from .ash.yaz0 to .ash...and this takes time..[​IMG]. Would there be a way to automate this?
