    Hi,

    I don't know if this is useful for you guys, since we already have at least two other XCI cutting and trimming tools here on gbatemp I don't know if another tool in that space is actually helpful.
    Anyways: There is also another simple tool for cutting XCIs available on github https://github.com/choss/java-xci-splitter/releases
    Maybe someone finds it useful still.

    (BTW, the other two used tools are: https://gbatemp.net/threads/xci-cutter-multiplatform-osx-linux-windows.507322/ and https://gbatemp.net/threads/xci-cutter-tool-windows.504818/ )

    Version 1.3.3beta1 adds beta support for nsp splitting. Hopefully I have not broken xci splitting as I could not test that.

    Version 1.4 adds splitting of nsp files for sx os. The way for tinfoil should still be available for single files only (not in batch mode).
    Xci functionality is tested and seems to work.

    There is also XCI-Explorer it cuts faster than above two and also lets you clear, backup or inject certs

    Can't resize the window in the Linux version.


    Batch processing window is fine though:

    That is really odd. The not being able to resize was unfortunately done on purpose as the components inside do not scale when resizing the window.
    The real bug is that the window shows a tad bit small.

    Nevertheless I've there is now version 1.3.1 ( https://github.com/choss/java-xci-splitter/releases/tag/1.3.1 )which should have resizing enabled again as a quick fix. I hope to be able to take a better look at the linux version, when I have access to my Linux boxes again. Currently I am forced to work on Windows....

    BTW: I have no access to any Mac machines unfortunately, so issue in the OSX versions are also highly appreciated.

    The window opens to the right size now without having to resize it. So I guess locking it from resizing bugged it out somehow lol.

    Is this still the best splitter tool?

    Does anyone know if there's a way to get thumbnails to show on split xci's in the SX OS menu? It's just a minor inconvenience but having thumbnails is better than scrolling through titles.

    In my opinion yes :rofl2:

    Split xci should always show the thumbnail. At least in SXOS 1.1 which I was using. I believe though we moved on to using exFAT mostly.

    Looks good, lost the thumbnail for VC4 after splitting the XCI unfortunately.

    Just tried this on OSX
    As I really prefer Java JAR programs over other things (that either require tons of dependencies in brew, or having to compile stuff yourself, etc..), unlike these things which are usually "extract and double-click" simple.

    Works great, except that if you use the "Target" button, it creates a "weird filename" which includes the entire path in the final output file's filename:
    a1.png

    But other than that it works great!
    Here's me loading up the trimmed Super Mario Party XCI (620 MB smaller):

    I would ask: which games don't show up? Are they cart2 games? Do they need a higher Firmware than you have installed?

    I highly doubt that the implementation of the XCI splitting is to blame, since it is quite dumb.

    @bundat I will try to take a look. It's a bit hard without a mac, but apparently there are some issues in the gui framework I use...

    Looking the games up and yeah, all the ones with missing thumbnails are Cart 2.

    -Dragonball FighterZ
    -Worms
    -Shining Resonance
    -Banner Saga etc etc

    The working ones are Cart 1.

    Maybe I should ask @garyopa if TX has some guidelines for splitting cart2 games. (Which I hopefully just did)

    The main different with cart2 is the original encrypted 'logo partition' is empty, and new one is added that has the game logo now UN-Encrypted, one of the BigBlueBox .nfo files explained how the format changed between cart1 and cart2.

    I don't see how 'splitting' would fuck up the thumbnails, as all the info in the first part should be there still, maybe it is bug with how cart2 support is handled, I will check. -- And does this happen with other XCI tools?

    The output of my tool is exactly the same as: https://gbatemp.net/threads/xci-cutter-tool-windows.504818/ (That is my tool for sanity-checking)

    So I dare to say: there might be an issue with other tools, too... Maybe someone can try another tool and tell us the result.

    Great! That is good news! BTW Finding a Hack/Macintosh is apparently harder then one might think...

    And I fully ignore the fact that the "Split and Trim" button looks like shite

    Shamelessly double posting here: I added some support for nsp splitting. Only for the daring for now! I would appreciate feedback though.
