    Not yet.

    What I am now focusing on is something I regard as fundamental, subjectively. [​IMG]

    Allright, good to hear! I don't mind a little extra hdd traffic for having a) a better estimation for the remaining time and b) (almost) correct sizes in the list.

    Fig,

    I saw mention of the introduction of a bug, and I'm not sure if I am just experiencing that bug, but I thought I would report it in case I misunderstood.

    I am trying to transfer about 450 games from .wbfs files on an NTFS partition to a FAT32 partition.

    About 6 times throughout the transfer, the program would lock up, with a Dialog Box showing "Integer Overflow" (I think thats what it said).

    The issue seems to happen randomly, sometimes after only a few minutes, other times after several hours.

    Then the application closes, and I have to reopen and restart the transfer...

    Just thought I'd let you know.

    @Fig,

    Hey I think I have detected what I would consider a major bug which other users may be running in to and not identified. Anyhow say you have a game where you have more than one region version of. i.e.

    New Super Mario Brothers Pal and NTSC version.

    Anyhow, the way that the WBM handles the naming conventions it appears that it does not use the Game ID, instead it goes by the game title name. Anyhow, this seems to add confusion for WBM where is ends up failing, whether your going from drive to drive, drive to ciso etc.

    It appears this effects all ways of transferring games.

    It seems that when I was handling duplicates in the file list, I accidentally removed code that stopped you adding entries that already exist on the drives.. Copy n paste is evil, especially when you accidentally hit x instead of c.

    I'm just gonna post beta 3, which should remove the overflow error. It should either show up where the error is in the log, or you'll just never see it again because it wasn't important, or even a bug in the overflow check with some operating systems. It's quite possible, I've read few stories about it lately.

    I may be missing something here but if you have files stored on an NTFS drive and they are already in .wbfs format, do you really need to use this app to transfer them to a FAT32 drive - surely Windows explorer is all you need as there is no conversion process needed. I thought that was the beauty of NTFS and FAT32 support - but like I said, I may be missing something here.

    Yeah, that's one of the big advantages of .wbfs. You only need to convert them once, then you can copy them back and forth using explorer if you want. You may want to keep all disc partitions on your backup drive though and only transfer the game partition to the working drive. There could be other reasons too.

    I sincerely suggest rolling back to the early foundation.

    Is it possible to make the manager, somehow, work as a GUI, sending command to the wbfs_file.exe ?

    The errors don't make any sense. It works on Win7 fine with no errors, so it must be because your using XP. I'll need to try it.

    @Bloodlust
    Probably the same as TeenTin.

    0.3 release works without issue under exactly the same conditions.

    So that's the version to use then until I replace the progress panels. The technique I'm using obviously sucks under XP.

    What I am focusing on testing :

    Format WBFS drive

    ISO -> .wbfs -> WBFS drive -> .wbfs
    ISO -> WBFS drive -> .wbfs

    (Hex) Compare the above 3 .wbfs files generated with those generated by wbfs_file.exe.

    -------------------------------------------

    Then :

    .wbfs -> ISO
    WBFS drive -> ISO

    Compare the 2 ISOs with the original.

    -------------------------------------------

    I don't regard CISO, rar, Renaming, MD5, ... etc as fundamental stuff. [​IMG]

    I'm using XP and have not seen any of TeenTins errors. Probably the locale?

    Ok I have noticed that iso files transfered to CISO and then ciso to wbfs fails. The files transfer but the games will not load in the gx loader.

    Transfer from wbfs -->CISO fails 0% seems to just sit their.

    It appears that in beta 2 and 3 their seems to be a failure with CISO creation.
