PgcEdit 0.6.1

PgcEdit 0.6.1 released

Main changes from latest beta (PgcEdit 0.6.1 beta 12):
ImgBurn support. Thanks Lightning UK!
New Remap Titlesets function, to rearrange the order of the titlesets (safely! .)
New user's comments support, to document the PGCs. (See the Options menu, too.)
And some other minor changes and bug fixes.

Main changes from 0.6.0:
The main menus have been revamped. There are also some improvments in the GUI of many functions.
New functions to create a blank cell in any PGC, and a function to replace a Title domain by an imported one, keeping the menu intact.
Improvments in the Trace mode, with some new functions in the State menu, and new keyboard shortcuts.
The Renumber GOTOs feature has been improved to work also when copying/pasting commands with GOTOs.
Some bug fixes. And much more...

Also, there are 4 plugins for PgcEdit availables for download on my homepage.
Note to DVDShrink users: I have removed the two DVDShrink specific functions from the main program. They are now availables in the DVDShrink plugin.

PgcEdit 0.6.1 version history:
  • A. = Added feature.
  • E. = Enhancement.
  • R. = Removed.
  • F. = Bug fix.
  • A. Burn: Added support for ImgBurn. The burn function now uses ImgBurn instead of DVD Decrypter to burn the ISO. Although it is recommended to use ImgBurn, it is still possible to use DVD Decrypter, for backward compatibility.
  • A. Burn: Added a "Launch ImgBurn" button in the burn dialog to easily examine your blank media before launching the burn operation.
  • A. The "Fix number of streams" macro is now launched automatically when a DVD is opened (but not when the DVD is reopened). If some discrepancies are found, the user is prompted to fix them. An option to disable this feature has been added in the Options menu.
  • A. PGC Editor: Added a function to create a blank cell in a PGC. Can be used also in a dummy PGC. You may use VobBlanker to replace the new cell. Useful if you want to add a new clip or a menu page in a domain.
  • A. New function "File -> Replace VTST Titles" to replace the current VTST domain by an imported one. Can be used to replace a VTST domain after a reencoding or a shrink of a title with DVDShrink in reauthor mode.
  • A. Trace Mode -> State menu: Added functions to snapshot the current trace position and state, to be able to return to a snapshot point at any time. Also, some snapshot points are automatically saved during the trace. This feature can be used as a limited undo of the last trace steps. Drawback: the 'PGC Played' flags and highlights are lost after a restore.
  • A. Trace Mode: A special snapshot point is recorded automatically when the user quits the trace mode, and restored when the trace mode is reenabled (and when the current DVD is reopened with File -> Reopen DVD). It can also be restored with State -> Return to -> Trace Mode Closed.
  • A. Trace mode: Added some keyboard shortcuts, available in trace mode only:
    - Control-Right: -> Step
    - Control-Up: ->> Next PB
    - Control-Down: ->>> Run
    - Control-Left: ->| Break
    - Escape: ->| Break
  • A. Added some keyboard shortcuts in main panel:
    - Control+Shift+B: Incremental backup,
    - Control+Alt+B: Restore Backup
    and one shortcut available only when the command pane is active:
    - Control-Insert: Append to Scratchbook
  • A. Added "Display PGCs list as text" function in the Info menu.
  • A. Added a progress bar in the status bar.
  • A. Menu buttons viewer: It is now possible to right-click on the Image < and Image > buttons to display the prev/next background by larger steps.
  • A. New function "DVD -> Remap Titlesets" to rearrange the order of the Titlesets. This function renumbers the JumpSS-VTSM commands automatically.
  • A. New functions to add, modify, export and import user comments for the PGCs. The comments are displayed in the PGC selector pane, in the current PGC title and in all places where a PGC label is displayed.
  • A. Added an option to allow PgcEdit to automatically add PGC comments when creating new PGCs or for information purposes. Currently, the Calls Cross References and Import Startup/Intro/Closing Clip functions are able to create comments automatically.
  • A. Added an option to automatically load and save the PGC comments in the backup folder when a DVD is opened or saved.
  • E. The Utilities and Macros menus are now removed, and replaced by the DVD, Domain, PGC, Menu and Title menus.
  • E. The Options menu is now splitted in sub-menus Startup, Input/Output, User Interface and Command Editor.
  • E. Moved the Plugins menu before the Tools menu. (Was after the Tools menu.)
  • E. The Return key can now be used to accept all requesters. (Same action as clicking the OK button.)
  • E. Added an Help button in the Search All results, and in the Go to Calling Command windows.
  • E. Added several options in the PGC Editor's Celltimes.txt function.
  • E. It is now possible to delete a range of cells at once in the PGC Editor.
  • E. In the PGC Editor's subpic streams assignments frame, a message shows now which subpic streams are really necessary according to the current domain stream attributes. Also, in the assign streams GUI, the unused streams are now grayed out, although it is still possible to modify the assignment.
  • E. It is now impossible to configure the Domain Streams Attributes's video mode with an illegal combination of flags (for example 4:3 + LetterBox or Pan&Scan, or 16:9 without either Letterbox or Pan&Scan or both.)
  • E. The GUI of the Remap Title Numbers function has been enhanced.
  • E. Renumber GOTOs option: The GOTO commands duplicated or copied/pasted to the clipboard are now also automatically renumbered.
  • E. It is now possible to specify the GPRM to use for the Import First-Play Clip and Import Title's Intro Clip functions, and force the macro to continue even if there are no unused GPRMs remaining in the DVD.
  • E. Added an option in the Import Title's Intro Clip macro to display the intro clip only the first time the title is played.
  • E. Changed the default settings for the "Enable Navigation Buttons" macro.
  • E. Trace: Renamed the preview option "Start Preview automatically when playing a cell?" to "Open Preview automatically when playing a cell?".
  • E. Trace's snapshot menu: The PGC label and pre/post/cell line number are now displayed in the menu items of the Snapshot submenus, and a new "Clear all Snapshots" function has been added.
  • E. Info -> PGC: Added the Angle number in the cells list.
  • E. Info -> PGC param and Cells tables: Added the total playing time for each domain, and the total playing time for the whole DVD.
  • E. PUO editor: added a button to input the PUOs as a value. Can be used to paste the value in the PUO_plugin.
  • E. Better handling and error messages when an invalid Nav Pack is found when scanning for menu buttons or BOVs.
  • E. The error message displayed when trying to load an encrypted VOB from the DVD drive says now clearly that it's a CSS encryption problem.
  • R. The DVDShrink Remote Buttons and DVDShrink Streams Remapping macros are removed. The same functions are now availables in the DVDShrink Plugin , as well as two new functions to launch DVDShrink from within PgcEdit.
  • R. Burn: Removed the "Download Daemon Tools" button on systems running in Germany and Unided Kingdom, due to legal issues in these countries.
  • F. Burning double layer DVDs did not work if the "Split ISO image into 1 GB chunks" option was enabled.
  • F. The VTS_TMAPT table is now updated upon creation or deletion of a PGC in the Title domain.
  • F. The Title number displayed in the PGC selector was wrong when the TTNs were not stored in ascending order in the title domain.
  • F. A Set, SetCLnk, CSetLnk or CSetCLnk using a SPRM as the first operand of the IF condition was not flagged as invalid. However, it was not possible to enter such an illegal command in the command editor.
  • F. Command Editor: Fixed the error opening the Command Editor when the "Start in Trace Mode" option was on and a DVD was loaded via the command line.
  • F. Fixed a very rare bug in the handling of the Command Editor window size.
  • F. The PGC Editor window was too small when displayed on a 800x600 screen.
  • F. Menu viewer/editor: When a menu group has both the Letterbox AND Pan&Scan flags set, the menu was displayed in pan&scan mode. Now, PgcEdit checks the video attributes of the current domain to determine the display mode.
  • F. It was possible to crash the BOVs menu viewer/editor if the scan for BOVs of the current titleset was interrupted.
  • F. Trace mode: When the Next Chapter button was pressed when the last program was playing, sometimes the last program was played again, instead of the NextPGCN link or post command.
  • F. Trace mode: The Title PUOs (in the VMG_TT_SRPT table) were not displayed in the Watch PUOs window.
  • F. Trace mode: In "Next PB" mode, the playback stopped when entering the post commands of a dummy PGC. Now, the playback stops only if there is a pre/ post breakpoint on the dummy PGC.
  • F. On foreign window platforms, the config files were saved in the user's home (or in the "Application Data" folder if this folder was present.) Now, the config files are saved in the correct application data folder, even if his name is different.
  • F. Fixed some little bugs when a VTS has no VTS_TMAPTI table at all.
  • F. A bug prevented the Create New Blank Cell function to automatically save the DVD.
  • F. New version v1.11 of PsKill.exe by SysInternals.com (in the bin folder under Windows). The previous version was sometimes wrongly identified as a possible virus by some virus killers.
  • F. New 'Play All' Title bug: In trace mode, JumpVTS_TT to the new TTN was unable to find the target PGC.

PgcEdit 0.6.1 includes PgcEditPreview v2.1, by Jeanl:
  • Fixed the overlay buffer pointers that were not set to 0 when "no overlay" was selected.
  • Now allocating oversized blocks to avoid crashes that have been seen with (probably) faulty mpeg data. (See the Taelon posts on this page.)

Thanks r0lZ!



I, for one, would like to have all your current plugins in one zipped file. This way I could update my PgcEdit's plugin folder more efficiently by uncompressing all to the folder. Whatever needs updating will be replaced.

Why would you want to do that? It'll be overkill on the playback of your DVD.

It's useless to set PUOs for dummy PGCs. Since they are not played, you have no time to use your remote.
Anyway, you can already set all PUOs if you wish. Just set all checkboxes once. Then, copy the generated number, and paste it in the other PGCs.
Also, try the PUO plugin. There is a function to set or clear the PUOs in all PGCs of the current domain in one operation.

No so rOLZ. If in DVDLab I make a menu that is just a black background, I can set its duration to any seconds I want...so I plays like a movie...This is handy to transition between menus or for DVD players that have strange buffers (i.e. the last menu you are on stays on the screen a bit before you goto a movie)....so it does have a use....yes I can click all the boxes, but an "ALL" box would be useful....but it is up to you.

This would be a Blank cell you are referring to then. A Dummy PGC has no video cells at all.

Does DVDLab not let you set the PUO's at the time of creation ?

@r0lZ: Thanks again for a terrific release.

@r0lZ

In your http://home.tiscali.be/debie.roland/pgcedit/index.html link, your "All plugins folder" link gives me this.

Hum, right! And the same problem occur with the "All Versions" folder.
Tiscali has recently been sold to Scarlet. The server has changed. I will contact the hotline to see if this problem can be fixed. If not, I will add an HTML page with download links...

Note that you can still access the folders from the main homepage at VideoHelp, and from the unofficial mirror in Poland.

Suggestion or plugin

Is it possible that during trace mode for Pgcedit to print out
for each VTS or PGC which cells are not used during playback
if at all possible?
tory
P.S. Thanks for the great release.

The trace dump is only able to dump what it has reached, not what it has not played. This is due to the way it works. Sorry.

@2COOL. No solution for the Tiscali mirror problem. I have changed the links. Now, the folders are linked to the main site at VideoHelp.
