[v1] "reInstallDDWC.cmd" for DamienD's WinUAE Collection
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here we are. The long awaited 'v1' of the reInstallDDWC.cmd script is finally here .

As the previous versions, this script is intended to reinstall the DamienD's WinUAE Collection from scratch.
It still also can be used to start the reinstall at a given pack (and forth) as well as onto a custom folder of your choice.

As before, ANSI escape sequence facilities are required from your command prompt window (install 'ANSIcon' if needed).

It has nevertheless some improvement over it's predecessor :
  • for an unmatched user experience, it requires a command prompt windows of 80 columns and 42 lines ;
  • except if DamienD remove a game from his Collection, only the required files present on a game folder are going to be deleted while a game is updated/renamed. To do so the script now takes care of the content of the update pack ;
  • 'APC&TCP screenshots and config only' packs require that you validate their installation (you still then have to manually copy your digital downloaded file to the needed folder) ;
  • if for some reason your WinUAE.ini file got corrupted, it is now possible to launch the script to recreate it* ;
  • if you don't use the ini file, it's also possible to recreate the registry entries* ;
  • WinUAE GUI's size is adapted to your screen resolution ! ;
  • the installation status has been rethinked and now allow a better global view to follow the process ;
  • three gorgeous hand drawn Amiga related ANSI-art now embellish your command prompt window during the reinstallation. A special and fourth one, hand drawn as well, is also present (DamienD related :p) ;
  • first run special message.

As previously, simply :
  • copy the script in the folder where you actually have the DamienD's WinUAE Collection archives ;
  • open a cmd console ;
  • invoke the script ;
  • read the on screen texts.

Enjoy.


* to do so, when you invoke the script, input as second parameter either INI or REG
ex. : reInstallDDWC.cmd <drive> ini


Please note that if you generate the 'ini', registry entries will be deleted (and that the 'ini' file will be deleted if you generate the registry entries).

Hmmm, not sure why you'd need to do this?

Just re-download from here:

Can you please post an image of my Bub avatar in ANSI format via a Command Prompt so that I can view better? :p

Received, cheers ;)

Would love to use your "ANSI Bub" in my "Setup.exe" batch file; but alas it would mean people need to install "ANSIcon" before running... way too much trouble.

I tried an online ASCII generator; and this is the best I could come up with:

Since there were many BBS running on Amiga BitD, I remember having toyed around with some ASCII-art program BitD. Maybe you can find some good one on aminet to "generate" your dino in ASCII-art. Try something like "IFF to ASCII", who knows ;)

The image converter found here produced this from your avatar picture. The ANSI is attached, it's 56 columns wide as that was the best fit for a standard size cmd window.

It hadn't even occurred to me that Windows 10's console handles ANSI colour codes, but it does and not just the traditional 16 that we're used to seeing but 256 colours worked fine as well. For all I know 24-bit may be possible :shocked

My hand-drawn ANSI Bub is only 6 colours ;)
(7 if I count the signature)
