The One /Special Edition (Region 1) WideScreen or Fullscreen Cheat Sheet

The One - Special Edition [Region 1] WideScreen or FullScreen
Courtesy of 2CL

Tools I used
IFOedit 0.95
DVD Decrypter in File Mode and selecting certain files

Title Information
Title 1: VTS_01 contains your WideScreen movie
A value of 41321 in GPreg<0> plays your WideScreen movie.

Title 2: VTS_04 contains your FullScreen movie
A value of 41987 in GPreg<0> plays your FullScreen movie.

__________________________________________________________
1. Create a folder named “The One” and a subfolder named “Files”.
__________________________________________________________
2. Rip the following files for your desired aspect ratio to your “The One”folder.
  • WIDESCREEN: Rip all files except VTS_04_1.VOB to VTS_04_3.VOB
    FULLSCREEN: Rip all files except VTS_01_1.VOB to VTS_01_3.VOB
__________________________________________________________
3. Region Free every IFO and save commands if Region Code Encoding (RCE) is detected. I do this out of habit especially if I decided to use SmartRipper instead.
__________________________________________________________
4. Open VIDEO_TS.IFO with IFOedit and press “Get VTS Sectors” buttons to load other IFOs.
__________________________________________________________
5. Bypass Unwanted Stuff

In VIDEO_TS.IFO / VMG Overview / Language Menu Unit 1, do a Delete Playback on the following menus. Select and press your Delete Playback button. If successful, your number of Programs and Cells should be zero and (uses VOB-IDs: #) should disappear.

Language Menu Unit 1: [English]
Menu 1: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 1) Columbia Tristar Logo
Menu 2: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 2) Rated PG-13 Movie Rating
Menu 3: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 3) FBI Warning
Menu 4: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 4) FBI Warning
Menu 5: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 5) Format Modified Note
Menu 6: [entry only]...(Programs: 2) (Cells: 2) (uses VOB-IDs: 6) Format Modified Note

__________________________________________________________
6. Save VIDEO_TS.IFO
__________________________________________________________
7. Select your aspect ratio preference.
  • WIDESCREEN: Proceed to next step.
    FULLSCREEN: Go to step 12.
__________________________________________________________
WIDESCREEN

8. Bypassing the Aspect Ratio Menu

Go to VIDEO_TS.IFO / VMGM_PGCI_UT / PGC-Menu_1 / PGC Command Table. We need to add a new Pre Command. Right click on any Pre Command and select “Add PreCommand”. Now double click on our new Pre Command, NOP, and enter new hex value as below.

OLD > 3.Pre Command...NOP.................................[00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00]
NEW > 3.Pre Command...Set GPreg<0> mov (set-val)<41321>...[71 00 00 00 a1 69 00 00]


Details: In your aspect ratio menu which displayed before the main menu, if you selected Wide Screen, it would set the value of GPreg<0> to 41321. I decided to set it before the aspect ratio selection menu popped up. With this being set, following commands prior to main menu has detected Gpreg<0>'s value and your Aspect Ratio menu does not display now, which is what we want.
__________________________________________________________
9. Save VIDEO_TS.IFO
__________________________________________________________
10. Get VTS Sectors
__________________________________________________________
11. Press DVDPlay button to preview and test. Test also in PowerDVD or WinDVD if you got it.
__________________________________________________________
That’s it for WideScreen. Burn what works for you.

FULLSCREEN

12. Bypassing the Aspect Ratio Menu

Go to VIDEO_TS.IFO / VMGM_PGCI_UT / PGC-Menu_1 / PGC Command Table. We need to add a new Pre Command. Right click on any Pre Command and select “Add PreCommand”. Now double click on our new Pre Command, NOP, and enter new hex value as below.

OLD > 3.Pre Command...NOP.................................[00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00]
NEW > 3.Pre Command...Set GPreg<0> mov (set-val)<41987>...[71 00 00 00 a4 03 00 00]


Details: In your aspect ratio menu which displayed before the main menu, if you selected Full Screen, it would set the value of GPreg<0> to 41987. I decided to set it before the aspect ratio selection menu popped up. With this being set, following commands prior to main menu has detected Gpreg<0>'s value and your Aspect Ratio menu does not display now, which is what we want.

Thanks 2COOL

I am smart enough to learn this stuff... But as much as I look through these pages I swear I need a 1 hour conversation with a genious like you to get it... I am at a road block with IFOEDIT I don't seem to be able to overcome... I dig the software... I use it constantly to clean up my movies prior to using any Shrink software for best results...

Can you suggest a place for me to learn more about HEX editing and Advanced DVD structure using IFOEDIT...?

Thanks a bunch...

Jeff
