End of Title behavior change in IFOEdit

Ok, I have a home made DVD file system.

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_0.VOB
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_02_0.BUP
VTS_02_0.IFO
VTS_02_0.VOB
VTS_02_1.VOB

This was created through SpruceUp and works fine. Except:

When the first title finishes playing, it goes back to the main menu. I would like it to simply start playing the second title. (So it plays as one long movie). I would just make one long mpeg2 file originally to import to SpruceUp, but I am working with limited resources so need to use smaller individual MPEG2's.

Is it possible to edit this behavior using IFOEdit before I burn it to DVD? If you need me to I can post parts of the IFO info from within IFOEdit, but I don't want to up front unless you need it. Thanks for your help!!!

One other piece of info, I know I could probably just rename the VOB's so they were all one title, and use Create new IFO and then Get VTS Sectors, but then I lose my menu. I would like to keep the menu, that is why this is not an option.

I am assuming that the way the player knows what to do when it gets to the end of a VOB or Title is somehow encoded into the IFO's. If this is not correct then where is this information available for the player?

Jolard,

First of all, if I understand your situation, Title 1 is your VTS_01_* and Title 2 is your VTS_02_*.

Editing SpruceUp Authored Movie to Play Titles Consecutively Guide
____________________________________________________________
1. Use IFOedit and go to your VIDEO_TS.IFO/VMGM_PGCI_UT browse through all your PGC-Menus looking for this command.

(JumpTT) Jump to Title: 2
____________________________________________________________
2. When you have found it, either remember it well or write your PGC-Menu number down on a notepad.
____________________________________________________________
3. Now go to VTS_01_0.IFO/VTS_PGCITI/VTS_PGC_1/PGC Command Table/Post commands (I'm assuming that you have only one PGC)

You'll have a jump command to your VMG which brings you back to your root menu.

We need to change that command to jump to your new VMG PGC-menu, the one that contained your (JumpTT) Jump to Title: 2 command.
Your new command should be like this...

Post Command (JumpSS VMGM) Jump to VMG PGC: ?

? is the number you wrote down in step 2.
____________________________________________________________
4. Save VTS_01_0.IFO
____________________________________________________________
5. Get VTS sectors
____________________________________________________________
6. Preview (DVDPlay) and test your movie.
____________________________________________________________
7. Repeat steps for remaining titles.
____________________________________________________________

Simple problem, simple answer. I'm glad things worked out for you as I also use SpruceUp. IFOedit is such a wonderful tool when you start understanding the commands.

Editing the post command only causes my Title 1 to loop, instead of what I want it to do, which is jump to Title 2 and then jump to Title 3. Here is what the post command looks like in my VTS_01_0 PGC Command Table:

(CallSS VMGM) Call VMG PGC: ?

My edit was to change the '?' from 7 to 2.
Here are the pre commands in the PGC Command Table in my PGC-menu_2:

1.Pre Command If GPreg<4> & (cmp-val)<65280><' then Goto line# 3
2.Pre Command Goto line# 6
3.Pre Command Set GPreg<6> mov GPreg<4>
4.Pre Command Set GPreg<6> div (set-val)<256>
5.Pre Command Set GPreg<4> and (set-val)<255>
6.Pre Command If GPreg<4> >= (cmp-val)<4> then (LinkPGCN) Link PGC 3
7.Pre Command Set GPreg<0> mov (set-val)<1>
8.Pre Command If GPreg<0> == GPreg<4> then (JumpTT) Jump to Title: 1
9.Pre Command Set GPreg<0> mov (set-val)<2>
10.Pre Command If GPreg<0> == GPreg<4> then (JumpTT) Jump to Title: 2
11.Pre Command Set GPreg<0> mov (set-val)<3>
12.Pre Command If GPreg<0> == GPreg<4> then (JumpTT) Jump to Title: 3
13.Pre Command (JumpSS FP) Jump to First-Play domain PGC

Title 1 is the first-play item. I would like playback to completely bypass the SpruceUp menu. When I created new IFOs using VOB Extras, on playback the timer would reset to 00:00:00 at the end of the first VOB, and also Stop/Resume, FF and FR didn't work on the 2nd (and I assume 3rd) VOBs. Please tell me what to try next.

@naut

I haven't dabbled with SpruceUp for quite some time now but here's my 2 cents. I'm assuming that your Titles reside in these Titlesets.

Title 1 > VTS_01
Title 2 > VTS_02
Title 3 > VTS_03

Here are the Post Commands you should have in your VTS_0*_IFO / VTS_PGCITI / VTS_PGC_1 / PGC command Tables. You will have to hexedit the first Post Commands.
_______________________________________________
VTS_01

1.Post Command...Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<257>..................[71 00 00 04 01 01 00 00]
2.Post Command...(CallSS VMGM) Call VMG PGC: 2 [Resume Cell: 1]...[30 08 00 02 01 c0 00 00]

_______________________________________________
VTS_02

1.Post Command...Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<258>..................[71 00 00 04 01 02 00 00]
2.Post Command...(CallSS VMGM) Call VMG PGC: 2 [Resume Cell: 1]...[30 08 00 02 01 c0 00 00]

_______________________________________________
VTS_03

1.Post Command...Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<259>..................[71 00 00 04 01 03 00 00]
2.Post Command...(CallSS VMGM) Call VMG PGC: 2 [Resume Cell: 1]...[30 08 00 02 01 c0 00 00]

_______________________________________________
I hope it works!

I made these six changes and burned to a +RW to test it in WinDVD and an Apex player. Each of the 3 titles loops with itself. Here's the ten PGC commands I copied from VTS_01_0.IFO/VTS_PGCITI/VTS_PGC_1

1.Pre Command NOP [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ]
2.Pre Command NOP [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ]
3.Pre Command NOP [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ]
4.Pre Command NOP [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ]
5.Pre Command NOP [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ]
6.Pre Command Set GPreg<0> mov GPreg<6> [61 00 00 00 00 06 00 00 ]
7.Pre Command Set GPreg<6> mov (set-val)<0> [71 00 00 06 00 00 00 00 ]
8.Pre Command If GPreg<0> == (cmp-val)<1><' then Break [00 a2 00 00 00 01 00 00 ]
1.Post Command Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<257> [71 00 00 04 01 01 00 00 ]
2.Post Command (CallSS VMGM) Call VMG PGC: 2 [Resume Cell: 1] [30 08 00 02 01 c0 00 00 ]

I'll try other suggestions you may have.
I'll re-author with SpruceUp in a way that will make the IFOs easier to manipulate.

oooops! I did a boo-boo.

What I gave you will definitely loop your titles. Here are the new Post Command edits. At the end of Title 3, it should go back and play Title 1 again.
_______________________________________________
VTS_01

1.Post Command...Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<258>..................[71 00 00 04 01 02 00 00]

1.Post Command...Set GPreg<4> mov (set-val)<259>..................[71 00 00 04 01 03 00 00]

Mostly success, thanks. On the Apex, if I FF more than 4x inside title 2 or 3, playback jumps ahead to the beginning of the next title. This is a minor problem I can live with.
