    I've put out my command-line utility to display info and shrink Gamecube image files. Check it out at the Wiki. Thus far, it has made images that are identical to GCMUtility. So now you don't have to monkey with its awkward interface! [​IMG]

    I'm releasing the next version. I've added CRC32 calculating and much improved the speed of shrinking an image.

    Download and instructions are at the GBATemp Wiki.

    This is pretty cool I must say. You should try to make a gui though as i'm sure some ppl dislike command prompts. Not to mention you have to remember commands lol.

    GUIs already exist in GCMUtiltiy (to shrink) and GC-Tool (to view the files). I make it mostly as I learn a little bit about the Gamecube, and I prefer the command line. Command line tools are the best way to set up scripts and such to automate several tasks.

    There's nothing to be afraid of, it's just a little typing...

    Oh, and a general note about using this to shrink the files. I have found a few instances where it creates a file different from GCMUtility's shrinker. On one test, it didn't want to run properly, too. I'm still looking into how (and why) GCMUtility does what it does. If anyone else knows a bit more about the file tables and such of GCM images, let me know...
