PgcEdit v9.0 released (24 Dec 2008) and v9.1 (3 Jan 2009)

PgcEdit v9.0 finally released!

The changes are so numerous that I can't list them all here.
See What's new in PgcEdit v9.

Please note that there are new versions of the Play All PGC and the VOBU plugins. Please download and install them if you need them, as the old versions may be incompatible with PgcEdit v9.

Also, the Time Maps and Language Unit (LU) plugins are now deprecated, as their functions have been integrated in PgcEdit itself.


Now, the bad news:

PgcEdit is no longer totally free! A nag screen is displayed during some seconds when PgcEdit starts, to boost the donations! Apart from that, no functionalities of PgcEdit are disabled. The source code is temporarily unavailable, of course.

The donors that have donated even a single $ in the past, will receive by email a code to disable the nag screen. If you haven't received your code in 2 or 3 days, please send me an email. (My email address is on the PgcEdit homepage, in the contact section.) Also, if you have helped me in the past, for example by writing some guides, you may receive a free code. Again, write me!
I wish to thank the peoples who have already donated. Unfortunately, they are not numerous, and therefore I had to introduce this little limitation. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The guys who have not donated yet will need to pay at least $15 or 10 to receive the code. Sorry, guys, you should have donated when PgcEdit was free!

Finally the momentous event arrives!!

Take note of the massive changelog guys.

This is the cut down version too!

In the end it took 92 betas and a years development to get to this stage and r0lZ has put an absolutely phenomenal amount of work into this release.

His program is by far the best of its type so where possible give some thought to supporting his efforts.

Thanks r0lZ!

Small bug in v9.0

Thanks to the beta team, I have just fixed a bug in v9.0.

When you select the menu "Preview -> Automatically start preview playback?", an error message is displayed.
Don't worry. This error has no consequence. Just cancel the error dialog.

Of course, this bug will be fixed in v9.1. Pity we haven't noticed it yesterday!

Thanks r0lZ & testers for all the hard work. PgcEdit owns our DVD backups.

Enjoy the holidays or the days ahead guys.

A bug in PgcEdit 9.0

When the last VTS is selected (in this case 2) and I do DVD->Delete last VTS in DVD, the VTS gets deleted but PgcEdit displays the message:

Error: can't read "::pgcs(2,1,cellpbt...

Message details are:
Code:
can't read "::pgcs(2,1,cellpbtable)": no such element in array
can't read "::pgcs(2,1,cellpbtable)": no such element in array
    while executing
"set cellpbtable $::pgcs($vts,$pgc,cellpbtable)"
    (procedure "refresh_listbox" line 18)
    invoked from within
"refresh_listbox"
    (procedure "scratchbook" line 46)
    invoked from within
"scratchbook false"
    (procedure "cmds_to_listbox" line 4)
    invoked from within
"cmds_to_listbox pgc $vts,$pgcnum $label"
    (procedure "::main::display_pgc" line 6)
    invoked from within
"::main::display_pgc pgc 0 0"
    (procedure "::utils::delete_last_vts" line 142)
    invoked from within
"::utils::delete_last_vts"
    (menu invoke)
Closing the message and clicking any other VTS or VMG results in the same message over and over again, until the application is restarted.

OK, bug fixed. I'll release v9.1 soon.
In the meantime, when you delete the last VTS, just select a PGC in another VTS before calling the function. That way, the bug doesn't happen.

I noticed that when i check "State -> Mark played PGCs as played" in trace mode this setting is reset once i restart pgcedit. Is this a bug? Would be nice to have this feature enabled at all times.

Are you sure? IMO, this function is only useful if you use it only during short navigation sessions, for example when you go to one point of the DVD to another one, to analyze the PGCs that were played, and see, for example, if you can skip them. IMO it doesn't make sense to mark all PGCs as played every time.
Also, the yellow highlights are also there for this purpose. (But they are reset when you reset or quit the trace.)

I do you see your point, but when searching for uncalled pgcs or tracing through the whole structure I found it to be quite useful, even more than just the yellow markers. But I don't really mind, setting it manually isnt much of a big deal anyway. Just figured it might as well be a bug.

SWEET!!
I've been waiting for this release for... um... a while anyway
I haven't yet been able to check out all the new features/fixes yet but I did find this:

Bug: for me, the menu item 'Trace>Trace Mode' is grayed out even after I open a dvd
the hotkey works fine though

Bug: I have the toolbar turned off usually
If I use the menu 'View>Toobar' to show it, then I click on Trace Mode button, then go back to the 'View Menu', Toolbar is unchecked
When I click on it, the toolbar stays open and the checkmark appears next to the menu item, clicking on View>Toolbar again hides it again
