Keeping Bonus Materials w/ Menu Guide

There are some people who just want to have the bonus materials on a seperate DVD. Here's a way to do it.

Keeping Bonus Materials and Menu Guide
Courtesy of 2CL

Note: This guide ASSUMES that your movie's IFO is VTS_01_0.IFO. If your actual movie IFO is different then substitute your IFO into guide

_______________________________________________________________
1. Rip everything to harddrive
_______________________________________________________________
2. Region Free and save IFO if RCE is detected.
_______________________________________________________________
3. As a precaution, backup all your IFOs to a separate folder in case you mess up in editing. We can copy them back and then Get VTS Sectors.
_______________________________________________________________
4.
Update: If your movie is in a single PGC Titleset, then use this guide.

How To Blank Out a TitleSet with a Single Program Chain.

If not then use these guides. How To Partially Blank Out a Multi-PGC TitleSet

Note: In this second guide below, use the blank cell VOBID and CellID to just blank out your movie's PGC only. The other PGCs in your movie's titleset may contain wanted extras.
A Quicker Way to Stripping Multi-PGC Titles
_______________________________________________________________
5. In VIDEO_TS.IFO / VMGM_MAT / First Play PGC / PGC Command Table / Pre-commands , edit pre command #1 as follows. Right-click and select (JumpSS VTSM).

1.Pre Command (JumpSS VTSM) Jump to TitleSet(vts): 1, Title(ttn): 1,root-menu
_______________________________________________________________
6. Save VIDEO_TS.IFO
_______________________________________________________________
7. In VTS_01_0.IFO / VMG Overview / Menu Language Unit [ ] , view only your menu that have (uses VOB-Ids: #) on the same line. You can do that by double-left clicking on the menu line and your VOB Preview window will hopefully present you what that VOB-ID contains.

If you find that you may not be able to view the VOB-ID, two alternatives for viewing is DVD2AVI and Vobrator. These are freewares that are available on Doom9ís download section. By preference, DVD2AVI would be my next choice.

Most of the time, viewing with IFOedit works. What you need to do first if your not experienced enough in knowing what your menus look like. It would be good practice to play your DVD and try to remember or write down the description of your menus. In your case, we need to find out what the main page of our Bonus Materials looks like so that we can find it using IFOedit.

When you do find your main page of your Bonus Materials, write down the PGC Menu # that resides on the same line. We'll need it for the next step.

Note: All Video Title Set (VTS) PGC-menu commands located in Language Menu Unit sections, will be found in your VTS_*_0.IFO/VTSM_PGCI_UT directory.
_______________________________________________________________
8. Let's just assume that you definitely found your bonus material main page and itís in PGC-Menu_5.

Go to your VTS_1_0.IFO / VTSM_PGCI_UT / PGC-Menu_1 / PGC Command Table / Pre commands. Edit first pre-command as follows. Right-click to change command.

(LinkPGCN) Link PGC 5

Note: See example below. PGC-Menu_1 will always be your root menu. Thatís normally the first place that navigation starts when it jumps to the Title set Menus. Of course, if we can jump to any menu directly if it is not configured as [entry only].



Example:

Language Menu Unit 1: [English]
Menu 1: [Root-Menu]........(entry PGC) (Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 1)
Menu 2: [entry only]...................(Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 2)
Menu 3: [entry only]...................(Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)
Menu 4: [entry only]...................(Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)
Menu 5: [entry only]...................(Programs: 4) (Cells: 4) (uses VOB-IDs: 3) Bonus Materials Menus
Menu 6: [entry only]...................(Programs: 0) (Cells: 0)
Menu 7: [entry only]...................(Programs: 1) (Cells: 1) (uses VOB-IDs: 4)


Translation of edit: When PGC-Menu_1 is accessed, the first pre-command will execute. It will immediately make a navigation jump to your Bonus Materialís main page. Upon DVD insert, your Bonus Materials show first.
_______________________________________________________________
9. Save VTS_01_0.IFO
_______________________________________________________________
10. Get VTS Sectors
_______________________________________________________________
11. DVDplay, preview, and test.
_______________________________________________________________
12. Burn DVD. I normally used Imgtool 0.95, with reallocation unchecked, along with Nero 5.5.17.9. Burn what works for you.

Great guide. Just want to mention that all your work and knowledge is appreciated.

Just one thing, most of these "Bonus" menus have an option to go back to the main menu. When this is selected, the root menu comes up.

I tried experiment with different settings under your "Getting Main Menu to Display Upon DVD Insert (in-depth)" and "Disabling a Main Menu Button the IFOedit way" but no luck.

The movie is "American Pie 3". Would you be able to give some direction?

The perfect tool for this is the registered version of MenuEdit. That's what I used for disabling my Menu button. If you don't have it, try doing this. First, backup your IFOs and BUPs.

Note: I have Region 1 so upon inspection, my main menu is in VTS_05_0.IFO / VTSM_PGCI_UT / PGC-Menu_8 / PGC command table. Right click on Pre Command #1 and select "Insert command". You should have a new Pre Command #1 with a NOP. Right click on this new command and select "Edit Command". Select "(LinkPGCN) Link PGC" and PGC Nr. 18. Save and test.
