Hello & Welcome to the Ultimate Conversion Compressor (UCC) Tutorial
Let's Begin with PART 1...
Welcome to the Ultimate Conversion Compressor (UCC).
So… What is UCC? Ultimate Conversion Compressor (UCC) is an advanced, mostly automated script program for compressing game conversions in order to fit the games on cheaper/smaller media, for example, converting a game from a single Blu-ray media to five (5) 4.5GB DVD discs or converting a game from a single DVD Dual Layer disc to 1 or 2 normal 4.5GB DVD discs.
Now, let's not waste any more time…
The UCC script is pre-encoded as an executable (EXE) file, despite the fact that it was written as a batch (BAT) file, therefore you cannot edit the script directly, so don't ask, I'm not going to give the script code out, that's why the script takes most variables & settings from multiple .ini files, the main one and the most important one being Settings.ini.
The UCC executable is also built in with all necessary files for all the various compressor & FreeArc external compressors available to use in UCC, therefore making a clean working environment.
First, let's take a look at the UCC folder structure:
The UCC main folder after you extract the downloaded file will comprise of the following…
The main executable is called Converter.exe and this is the file the end user will run to start the conversion.
But first, let's take a look at the folders…
The [Conversion] folder is basically a placeholder in which the compressed files are being created by default, each inside a designated folder, this is where you eventually find the ready and complete conversion if you don't select a different folder.
Now, the [Common] folder comprised of 3 additional Sub-folders as follows:
[Lists] – OPTIONAL FOLDER
The [Settings] folder is the most important folder in here, it comprised of the main settings file called Settings.ini and multiple Data#.ini files that sets the compression for each compressed archive, you will also find 3 sample Data#.ini files in this folder
We will go into more details on each of this folders and files in the next parts of the tutorial..
