Hi all,

Finally, I was able to write this simple tool, including the creation of a custom Vob. Command Line is also supported
BlankVob.exe
Sources
Quote:
I'd say to pay attention to these
VOBU end address - relative
VOBU first reference frame end block
VOB ID
Cell ID
Cell elapsed time (BCD)
I've found MackemX's Vob files do not change any of these, except VOBID & CELLID.

In fact,
VOBU end address - relative, so it's always the same.
VOBU first reference frame end block, seems to me it's always the same.
Cell elapsed time (BCD): Well, I can change it, but AFAIK , a discontinuity in elapsed time can be managed, so the simplest way is to keep it as it is.

Let me know if you find any bug or if any improvement is required.

Thanks! I'll be betatesting it soon.

Update: Looks good so far but I still wish, you could program it to do this.

VOBID 1 - CELLID 1
VOBID 1 - CELLID 2
VOBID 2 - CELLID 1
VOBID 4 - CELLID 1
VOBID 4 - CELLID 2
VOBID 6 - CELLID 1
Also, maybe a option to change the filename so that we could have it like...

VTS_01_1.VOB

Is it unable do it for you?
You have to select "custom mode", and then add the desired rows one by one. In your example:
VobID 1 CellID from 1 to 2
VobID 2 CellID from 1 to 1
VobID 4 CellID from 1 to 2
VobID 6 CellID from 1 to 1

In fact, you can even change the order of the VOBIDs..

I supposed you are asking to change the default name (you always can change the destination file, including the name). Yes, it would be better to use VTS_01_1.VOB, but in this case I should have to ask about overwriting. To be done in next version.

shh (author of FitCD and Restream) has written a similar utility. Works well, but tested with PAL only so far.

TitleSet Blanker v0.8.0

@jsoto

Sorry, my bad! I guess I didn't test out the custom option. Works just as plan. Thanks!

@RB

Works even better. I wish the NTSC version is available soon and that there's an option to put the backup files into another folder instead of the source folder. What would be awesome is an implementation to correct the sectors. The pseudo code to do that is explained here. Anyways, thanks for the Titleset Blanker link.

@All
For you lucky PAL users, when using Titleset Blanker, drag all your original files, the ones with renamed with "~" at end to another folder and open up any IFO in main folder with IfoEdit. Click on VTS Sectors button for IFO corrections.

Your tool goes up to VOB IDs of 20 and Cell IDs of 20. I believe the max allowable for VOB IDs in hex is FFFF or 655535 and for Cell ids, it's FF or 255. Though it's rare that a DVD would go that high in IDs, I would like to suggest you raise the ID #s to say...255 for both VOB and Cell.

Good news, seems shh's app is more advanced than mine (in fact I was thinking in doing the same as an evolution of BlankVob..). Well, at least I've learned a little bit of VC. Sure I'll use this knowledge in the future..

Edit: Sorry , a typo in shh name..

Please write directly into the combo boxes the desired numbers. (max 255). Tooltips show you this trick

Couldn't find any info on TitleSet Blanker but for the mean time, your tool does NTSC. I can work with this. You're almost there for providing us with a great alternate tool if you implemented a few things I mentioned. Keep up the good work! Hope to see your new version soon.

It's buggy when I try to do VOB ID 254 to 255. Could you add the values to drop down list?

IŽll check it.

Yes. In next version.

Not really true..., only in first (main window). I'll add tooltips to the Add/insert Window too. It's easy (BTW, tooltips are not my code, I've taken tooltip Class from Rejig...)

Many thanks, 2COOL. Thanks also for your help in this board. I (and many others) have learned many of the secrets of DVDs reading your guides (I've a copy in my HD of many them.., he he)

Hi again,

Changelog:
Vers 0.02 (18-01-2004)
- Change in ComboBoxes rules and management. Seems now works better...
- Tooltips added in add/ins dialog.
- Check file overwrite when Generate
- Default VOB name changed to VTS_01_1.VOB
- Listboxes filled up to 255.
- Does not exit when generate, only on quit or close.
- Title window shows version.

Links are the same, but files are the new ones
BlankVob.exe
Sources

@2COOL
I hope the bug you are reporting was related with Combos management. If not (or if you find another one), please let me know.

jsoto,

The dropdowns work great! But I do have a slight bug though. If I had set my Format to NTSC first and then browse to my destination directory, it changes back to PAL. But it works normally if I browse first and then change it to NTSC. It should be a simple fix to check the format prior to browsing and making sure that whatever format is selected is still selected afterwards. Other than that, it looks very good! Thanks!

Another thing, in your About messagebox, it's "Blank" not "Bank".
And another thing, the version in About box does not match what you have in Titlebar.

@2COOL: TitleSetBlanker already corrects VTS sectors. I'll ask shh for NTSC support.

OK, so now for my stoopid question as I took a run at TitleSet Blanker 0.8.0 again, which is the link you provided. Where is the option to do NTSC? I can browse to my NTSC files but I still end up with PAL VOBs.

Also...

Why is that when I still do a Get VTS Sectors in IfoEdit, there are still sectors corrected. Shouldn't I have non after TitleSet Blanker is done? Try it for yourself.

Nothing to suggest ATM and you're doing a fine job for being a newbie VC++ programmer. BTW, are you good with arrays?
