Another weird bug:

Mass verification using folder, for example, c:\xci\
2 files:
abc.xci
This is name ‘n’ here.xci

There would be an error at verifying "This is name ‘n’ here.xci"
However, if I remove "abc.xci" from the folder and there is only 1 file left, it works.
Hmm so you have abc.xci that makes all verifications fail? It does weird indeed, i'll try to replicate the bug. Any special traits on that file aside of the name?

Nothing special, just the file name.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Also, another weird bug:

When verifying individual file:
This is name ‘n’ here.xci = work
This is name ‘n’.xci = not work

It seems like file name handling is a bit buggy.

Wait "n" like a number and "here" after?. I didn't really have issues verifying mine but all are in this format.
name [titleid] [version] (flags if needed).xci more or less.

No number here, the file name has to be exactly
Code:
This is name ‘n’.xci
for it not to work.

Thank you for this tool!
A couple of questions if someone can help?

  1. Any chance that this can work over a network? All my files are on my server. I tried a symlink but it only seems to like local paths. EDIT - Looks like symlinks do work
  2. What happens if there is another update. Can I just use my new xci (say 1.0.1) and the new update (1.0.2) or do i need the original xci?
Thanks

1.- Yes, it also works from google drive, etc... If you use rclone mount, raidrive, or google filestream. I actually recommend raidrive since it let's you connect any cound of google drive, ftp, onedrive, box, ... Future native compatibility is also in the works for google drive.
2.- You can just add it using the multi-mode (mode 2) in recent releases, it will detect the newer content from each file to generate the xci. Older releases used an updater mode that is in the legacy section.

Thanks again.
I actually have the work folder working with a symlink but the output and temp folders dont seem to like it as a symlink. Do i need to repoint these folders somewhere?

Sorry i should try to be more clear.
I have put my xci and and update into a folder call 'Work' on my server and have a symlink to the NSC Builder application on my PC - This works.
However when i run the application the 'NSCB_temp' folder is created on my PC, so the files are being copied across the network. I would like all the work to be done on the server. Is there an option where i can do this?

You need to change the config and put a full route there:
Like:
::work folder
set "w_folder=NSCB_temp" -> set "w_folder=your route to NSCB_temp"
::output folder
set "fold_output=NSCB_output" -> set "w_folder=your route to NSCB_output"

If that doesn't work fine, Raidrive has an option to mount HDDs from a NAS i don't know if it fits your case but in case it does it may be worth to look into.
https://www.raidrive.com/Download
The free edition seem to work fine. If neither of those work i'll give it a check, though i can't give ETAs currently, since i have several things i'm working on right now.

Yeah it doesnt like that being a network location. It creates a folder locally. I'll keep tinkering.

Did you try mounting your network drive as a drive in the pc. Or you could try rclone mount since that one let's your content into a pc folder.

Doesnt seem to like it:

::work folder
set "w_folder=Z:\NSCB_temp"
::output folder
set "fold_output=Z:\NSCB_output"


Processing list mlist.txt
*******************************************************
Exception: [WinError 123] The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect: 'C:\\Source\\NSC Builder\\x64\\Z:'


So looks like it doesnt like anything that isnt in it's root directory.


EDIT - Got it working.
Change NSCB.bat --> Change set "w_folder=%~dp0%w_folder%" to set "w_folder=%w_folder%"

NOTE: There is a bad update for v1376256 Rocket League, has a bad control nca and I had to do modifications in NSCB to be able to extract the nca files and check the update. The error is at the header level in that nca which impedes the asignation of that file as nca and raises an exception.
If you encounter this issue is related to this. The update is encrypted with keygeneration3\master_key_02. An improvement in the verification will be implemented for these cases.

I am trying make xci of attack on titan 2 (split in xc0, xc1...) with 58 DLCs and update, but the program won't recognize the base game, Probably because it's split in xc0?
How do I get the program to detect those files?

I didn't add support for them yet. Didn't even add the merger I did.
Is possible but just didn't have time for it lately.
Well one of the fixes I planned for next realese is the fat32 on the direct creation mode so I'll see into adding the joiner too. The xc0, ns0 etc can be integrated in all the program functions but requires to add a good chunk of code in my opinion and I have other priorities for now.

Hi,
So this doesn't work with combining xci+NSP updates if the updates are too large?

I only want to bother to learn how to use this if i can do this, because I want to keep a MK11 XCI sideloaded on my usb and not have it on my emunand.
Thanks!

MK11 works since the update without deltas + the basegame will generate a file smaller than 32GB.
