--- UPDATE ---

Changes in version 2.1

- new wbfs_mod based on wbfs win 'delta' modded by Sorg
+ fixed delete bug
+ added rename of games
- added automatic exclusion of non valid drives so they no more appear in the list of choosable drives
- added auto-guessing of first attached wbfs drive (makes start a bit slower, but hey!) (thank to Knocks for the tip)
- added check if target iso is alredy present when extracting
- added localization structure
- added italian localization

The package with the program is here: WbfsWinGui v 2.1

With this release I've added, new features apart, the localization of the program, so if you want to make a translation of a few strings in a language different from english and italian, you can download the message package from here, translate it and send it back to me.

Thank you
Gotterdamerung

--- ORIGINAL POST ---
Hi all!

I developed a GUI for wbfs_win delta in java, so I'm releasing it here.

I hope you'll all like it, it's feature complete, you can:
- format non-wbfs drives
- get drive info
- get list of games on the drive
- estimate a iso size
- add a iso
- remove a game
- extract a game
- make the hbc tree

The application rely on the wbfs_win delta exe, slightly modified at assembler level to skip the format confirmation.

You can find the tool at: http://www.mediafire.com/file/yy4kuzylzdm/WbfsWin.zip


cheers!
Gotterdamerung


!!! WARNING !!!
Please be careful when using this tool, it can potentially delete all the content of your hard disk if you use it in the wrong way!
I don't assume responsability for a wrong use of the tool.

It starts with a very small window.
Only the caption is there.
But i can resize it.
I use 1920x1200 resolution maybe this is the problem ?

recomendations:

Now all the GUI's need to have the DVD->WBFS dump (well not really need, but you know...is good to have it all

2 Questions :

1. Have batch installation of ISOs ?

2. Is it with "delete"--bug fixed ?


Hi,

1. no, still no batch installation, I will introduce it in a further release

2. what "delete bug"? is a bug of my application or of wbfs? the tool is based on wbfs_win_delta, so will suffer of all the bugs of this utility

Hi,

I'll mess with libwbfs after i finished with the GUI part, and maybe after a release of a standard for it; by then I will begin to add every functionality possible, and maybe more

Since I rewrote most of the code, I would be gratefil if you want to submit me any problem you can find using my tool.
In particular I wuold like to know if it happens to show strange window layouts (a screenshot would be useful in these cases) and if you experience problems with the sorting of the games list (that I completely wrote myself because it was introduced in Java 6).

Thank you all
Gotterdamerung

P.S. with the next release I will change the wbfs executable to fix the delete bug and add the rename feature. Stay tuned!

Very clean interface, I like it. Can you make it go to the first available WBFS partition automatically?

Sounds like fun! good idea!
I'll make it in the next release, thank you for the suggestion!

Just tried the new version today, works great. Is it possible to extract ISOs to their actual size instead of blowing them back up to 4.7GB? Unless I'm missing something, there's no reason to "unscrub" an ISO once it's been scrubbed. Also, a prompt asking where to extract would be good.

new version 2.1.1 released.

It's waiting here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/zzymw1ojjw2/...Gui.v.2.1.1.zip

A few improvement, I introduced a config file.
Now you can set a default folder to look for isos, and a default folder to extract.
I even added the capability to ask where to extract files (it can be turned on/off in the config file).

By now I'll not working anymore on the project because work is overwhelming me.
Anyway if you have good improvements to propose I will be glad to implement them if I like, just don't wait it done in a few days.

And, to reply to Knoks, it's not possible to extract an ISO unscrubbed, just because I rely on wbfs_win, and this tool doesn't allow it. (if is available a new build that do this please let me know!)

Cheers
Gotterdamerung

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
