Massive DCFactory Updates: Nester, DCStella and DreamSNES!

Post by kRYPT_ » Mon Feb 25, 2002 10:04 pm

Been doing some coding and updating, so tons of new stuff for you guys tonight in the world of DCFactory, so here we go:

Nester Selfboot v1.5

- Supports long file names (no more 8.3)!
- Supports subdirs in the roms folder (requires a recent build of nester!)

DreamSNES Selfboot v1.1

- Will no longer remove music from 0.9.6 (bad idea)
- Allows you to use your own ROMS.LST (requested)
- Added a "fix rom names" option that will automatically "fix" 31-char filenames, and generate a proper ROMS.LST (much requested)

DCStella Selfboot v1.1b

- Supports DCStella v0.2b
- Now requires a theme to use

Get proper zips and themes from here. And speaking of themes, there are LOTS of nester themes available Here, up to 55 now, and still growing!

All the above scripts can be had by clicking the Scripts tab of DCF, and they're as usual conveniently listed under Available Scripts.

Thankyou, and good night.

Yeah, I still do things the old fasioned way, but I tried dcfactory last night, and it is by far the best selfbooting tool I've come across. Nice job.

And thanks for contributing to the scene. :)

Awesome...DCFactory gets better and better with each release! :D

Any chance you could add some scripts for creating rom discs?

but do any you script writers think you can do a script for the DC Divx player? think it'd be cool

anyways keep up the good work

Speaking of scripts, one of the scripts nessessary to operate DCFactory makes DCFactory crash.

Good to hear I helped someone, somewhere ;)

A script for DC-DivX is in the works, but I wanted to wait until it's a little more mature then it is now (next alpha perhaps).

And to those who were having connection problems, well, my server had some problems ;) but they're resolved now.

Yeah the new GUI is cool. But it would be even cooler if it matched the colors of the new site. You know, like black with red outlines and stuff. And maybe some more graphics to make it purty. And add a nice graphic to that "DCF: What do YOU want to do today?" page.

Why, are you volunteering to make me a nice graphic?

Must be the right/left brain thing.. people who are logical are great at programming, and sucky at art..

I'm trying to install the scripts, but I get an error.
"List index out of bounds (-1)"

What is wrong?

Idiot!
I'm obviosly new to this. The scripts came pre-installed....heh

Anyway, I started doing the NesterDC task, and an error came up while it was performing the task. While it was creating the Self-Boot CDI, it said file not found.

What's wrong?

Edit:
Scratch all of this. I think the image was made properly this time...But I still do have one question. I'm burning a nero image. Should I choose the disc at once or track at once option?

:) **pats Maxamilious on the back** :)

it's ok a lot of this stuff might be frightening and new but it's also fairly simple too.

i remeber when i first started reading about IP.BIN's and 1ST_READ.BIN's and how you have to hack them and etc. i was kinda nervous about wasting CDR's lol burning money and all. but the best way to learn is trial and error. so just don't give up. if it doesn't work or freaks out or something, look for FAQ's and ReadMe's. In other words, Do Your Homework!! LOL

Anyways with nero i always go "disc-at-once" works for me :D
