Chapter Commands Generator

This program generates the commands necessary to highlight the correct chapter button on the correct DVD menu page. Use PgcEdit to paste the commands set.




This app is running under AutoHotKey version 1.0.47.0
The supported versions are Windows NT / 2000 / XP / 2003 and beyond.
I tested this only on Windows XP Pro SP2.
  • Add
    • check for SPRM 4. (Title number in volume)
    • support for multistory
    • manually specify order of buttons
  • remove
    • pre and post commands for main movie title. (they are not needed when is added check for SPRM 4 )
  • Fix
    • small bug when saved sbk files
    • small optimized for speed start



I'm sorry please my very bad English.

yes! thanks for a great app.!

one thing i noticed is that when i resize the window, the "Generate" button on the bottom is not shown. it shows up when the window is maximized. i know you can use the File menu to generate the commands, but i think it would be safe to maybe add a scroll bar on the right side of the window if it is resized?

I forgot! Many many thanks to all what assist in development.


@Meez
Or you can use shortcut CTRL+G.

Thanks for you suggestion, but this will be not easy in AutoHotkey, however I try it.

ChapterCommandsGenerator v 0.7

@Meez
I trying add scroll bar, but this is very not good. Sorry. I fix problem with sometimes wasn't displayed button "Generate!" alternative method.


Download ChapterCommandsGenerator v 0.7 in my first post.

Changes:
  • Fix
    • when generated commands set for several PGCs (so far all right), now uncheck one PGC, after generated included fake PGC (therefore also GoTo line is fail).
    • the "Generate" button sometimes wasn't displayed
  • Add
    • your setup (LinkPGN 2 or LinkCN 2; Buttons per page; First button number) accepted also for all disabled option
      if "Remember session?" enabled change saved as default.

Thanks for the thanks!

Here is final ChapterCommandsGenerator v 0.8 (homepage).

Changes:
  • If option "Save window position" enabled, saved also high size and width size window. (added for small monitor ... "scrollable window")
  • Chapters per button selections.
  • If DVD opened in PgcEdit, default save path for sbk file is path to parent DVD folder.


Thanks to blutach for the suggestion "Chapters per button".

ok, i have a little problem. let's say i have a multi-page chapter menu. each page has 6 chapter buttons. they also have buttons to go to the next/prev page as well as buttons to go to the first and last page. now, this menu has 2 pages. when i select a chapter button on the second page, then press the root menu button, it goes to the second page and highlights the chapter button fine. now when i press the 'go to first page' button, it just stays on the second page and highlights the same chapter button.

i think i figured out why it does this. the 'go to first page' button links to the first page of the chapter menu, but the pre commands read the gprm(7) chapter and proceed to go to the correct page and highlight button. so it just loops to the second page whenever i select the 'go to first page' menu button.

is there someway to fix this?

If all in one PGC, change the commands to Link PGN 1, HL Button 6, instead of Link PGCN X (Link PGCN starts the PGC again at the precommands, Link PGN just jumps to a program without reading through the commands and jumping to the current chapter).

If the chapter menu is in several PGCs, then use a new dummy PGC for your chapter commands and direct the button for the scene selection on the main menu to that new dummy PGC. That way, the precommands are not executed, since the only time that new PGC is read is from the scene selection button on the main menu.

Big thanks blutach for your answer here, and for your big help at development.

Before using this version, please read the small help for more information ("Help" -> "Quick help" or shortcut "F1").

Changes from v0.8 to v0.9:
  • Add: "Option" -> "Default save path for SBK files", shortcut Ctrl+O.
  • Add: option "For new dummy PGC". (You must create a new dummy PGC to hold the generated commands (PGC --> New Dummy PGC). You must then use PgcEdit's menu editor to point the scene selection menu button to this new dummy PGC via a Link PGCN xxx command.)
  • Add: "Option" -> "Auto copy to clipboard". This possibility automatically will make copy to the clipboard generated commands set, in the event of several PGCs and unchecked option "For new dummy PGC", only commands for the first PGC.
  • Add: Default button number if Title wasn't played till now. If unchecked will be generated commands for highlight button for first chapter. This option will be saved when Remember sesion enabled.
  • Add: Test if the title is playing by using the RSM flag. If not exist RSM flag in your DVD, you have to first create it.
  • Selection which stop away use are disabled.
  • For Multistory selection - selected title number is red at following opening window for multistory titles selection.
  • For open SBK files in PgcEdit's scratchbook, needed PgcEdit v. 9.0 or higher.
  • Small cosmetic changes. And fixed several small bugs.

ChapterCommandsGenerator v 1.0

@blutach
Thanks for the thanks and thanks for the new idea.

New version 1.0 available.
Download from homepage: ChapterCommandsGenerator v 1.0


What's new:
  • Support for indirect set the highlighted button number via GPRM.
    Use this if your PGC with chapter menu included command (in this example gprm(5) for highlighted button number)
    [46 00 00 00 00 05 00 00] (SetHL_BTN) Set Highlighted Button =(mov) gprm(5)
    Generate :
    [61 00 00 05 00 03 00 00] Set gprm(5) =(mov) gprm(3)
    instead of:
    [75 00 00 03 04 00 00 00] Set gprm(3) *=(mul) 1024
    [46 00 00 00 00 03 00 00] (SetHL_BTN) Set Highlighted Button =(mov) gprm(3)
  • Support for more values for RSM flag. Only for one PGC mode, and for more PGC mode -> only for new dummy PGC. Value for RSM to occur type only digits separated with semicolon ";"! For example: "2;10" (without quotes).
    In more PGC mode without dummy will apply only first value before ";".
  • User can disable splash screen on startup.

Thanks again wencaS. I usually hate splash screens but this one is very cool and takes no time at all.
