I have to step in line: THANK YOU, r0lZ, for your great work. Much appreciated.

BTW, have you thought more about adding an option to select the previewed titles/PGCs/cells for blanking while previewing in trace mode, in order to create a VobBlanker project file to be executed with VobBlanker? Is it on your to-do list, or are you not going to implement it?

r0lZ,
I have 1 question for you...
In the option you added to remove a cell from a PGC, does PgcEdit modify all the commands to account for the fact that the cell numbers have changed? Do you also do that in button commands?
I'm puzzled, because it seems like a lot of work to me!
My hat to you!

No. The cell is removed. Point.
Same for programs and chapters.
You have to change the commands yourself. But most of the time, it's easy.

New documentation available

Version 2 of the CHM/HTML documentation by Blutach is available on the PgcEdit homepage. It's for PgcEdit 0.5.7 final.

Also, the PDF "Das Programm PgcEdit", wirtten by Tobi for german users, is also updated to PgcEdit 0.5.7.

Thanks, Blutach and Tobi!

I have downloaded the latest version and the help as well and I'll be taking a look through it to see what I can do with this program!, it's something to do with the structure of a DVD right? I am hoping it will assist me in my quest to figure out how to author DVDs which are very compliant. Thanks very much for your time and work ROIZ, and blutach for the help which I will need and find very useful for sure.

The program certainly seems very neat and fast.

r0lZ, I have some problems with the keyboard shortcut for previewing a PGC. The shortcut is `(~) but probably due to the differences in the various keyboard layouts, I just can't find that shortcut key...?!

I know this problem. On US keyboards, it's the key just below the ESC key. I cannot change that shortcut, because it's impossible to use the normal keys, or you will call the associated function when you type something in the search field. Sorry.

You've used up all the ctrl and/or alt combinations? Or don't want to use them?

Got a question about Jeanl's guide on Skipping FBI warnings and Previews on this guide Here. When I do step three and get the popup message I should choose No if I just want to create and burn an iso after that instead of using ifoedit or vobblanker afterwards, right? Just making sure.

I made a goal earlier this week to begin learning atleast some of the most basic possibilities with pgcedit. If I'm correct I can now,

Run the trace mode
Bypass/blank VMG menu's (without buttons ofcourse thx to jeanl tip)
Use macro to blank all unwanted VTS's (thx to jeanl's tip)
Blank cells at beginning of main movie (thx to 2cools guide)
Create iso with 32k gap.
(Learned all that in 6 days, I'm exhausted)

I've learned a tiny bit. Couple more years and I'll be able to use 1/20th of pgcedits features. MAYBE.

YOu can say Yes, or No, it does not matter if you don't intend to run vobblanker after that. If you say yes, AND you run vobblanker after that, the cell will be removed from the VOB. But you don't really need that for an FBI warning, because it's a very small cell usually....
YOu'll be surprised to see how fast you learn PgcEdit, the learning curve isn't just with PgcEdit though, it's with the whole entire DVD structure thing. That takes a while, but in a couple month, you'll be swimming in there like a fish in the ocean!

Some Ctrl or Alt keys should still be free. But I like the "`" key because the preview is often used, and you don't have to press two keys to launch it.
However, I can add another shortcut as well, for non-US keyboards.

Only a few small issues:

If I use the search function in pgcEdit (0.6beta5) the found command line numbers are wrong, i.e. one more than the real number.

If I search for the word "button" pgcEdit finds all occurences of the word "button" even in button commands. But in many cases, the found button commands are wrong.

Clicking on the "found button" results, pgcEdit opens the menu button window. Sometimes following message is displayed:

Warning: The SPRM 8: highlighted menu button number is out of range!
SPRM 8 button value: 10240 (button 10)
Valid button number range for this menu: 1 to 6

And there are really only 6 buttons.

Additional the displayed button group of the menu button window is not set according to the found button result.

Tested here using PgcEdit 0.6.7 with same result.

Tested 2 DVD's here without this problem.
@Goonix: For the Pgc's where you are having this issue does the Pgc Selector indicate 10 buttons or 6 buttons ? Are there multiple Program/Cells involved ?

Seems that it always opens the Menu Buttons editor displaying Program 1 Cell 1.

@zacoz

The DVD in work is "Mars Attacks! R2"

In the pgc selector pane there are 180 buttons in 55 cells.
The opened menu button editor windows trys to show the correct cell number. But there is a problem counting the cells from 0 or from 1.
After further investigation I found the button command of the "found button" window displays the command of the next cell same button number.
And the 10 buttons error occurs if the next cell has 10 buttons, but the current cell has only 6.

So it is maybe related to the first issue in my above post.

That makes sense why i didn't encounter the error - as the DVD's I tested had the same number of buttons in adjacent cells.

Seems harmless (if a little annoying) issue, so r0lZ will probably take a look when he works on PgcEdit next.

He'll also no doubt comment when he takes a break from enjoying the fraction of a life we leave him with.

Yes, I already know the problem with the line numbers in the search function, and the related problem with the wrong line being highlited.
I will look at the problem with the menu.
Thanks goonix and zacoz!

Tested with v0.6.0beta6.
Search all function works perfectly now.

Only one very little issue remains:
If I search for a very common word e.g. "link" then sometimes more than 1000 results will be found.
Then the result list is cut at the end. But this seems to be a restriction of Tcl/Tk.
And such search isn't really useful.

Many thanks r0lZ!
