Version 1.6.5 is released. Another big changelog including improved BOV scanning, better and faster ripping of highly corrupted DVDs, better handling of game DVDs and the ability to run RipIt4Me in your own language (translators wanted!). Note this version is also VISTA compatible.
The UI now supports other languages in the form of language files
(*.lang). The app ships with English strings, but you can add other
languages by adding the corresponding .lang files in the AppData folder
(where the ini file is stored).
To create new language files, simply copy the English one, change the
language code (use the ISO ID), and change all the strings. Then save it as
a .lang file (the name does not really matter, it's the language ID that
does). Strings that are missing from the language file will default to their
RipIt4Me reads the available language files when it starts, and you have a
setting in the preferences for which language to use in the UI.
If you create a language file, post it on the forum, and it will be included
in the installer after verification. Thanks! For further information see
section 3.1.7 of the guide.
Improved scanning for Buttons Over Video (BOVs). The first and last
navpacks for every cell are always scanned. There is a new
"Stride" setting which controls how many navpacks are skipped when
scanning for BOVs. In other words, if Stride is 10, RipIt4Me inspects 1
navpack out of 10 for cells that are smaller than the limit you have
selected. This makes the scan faster and allows scanning longer cells.
The stride parameter is in the preferences (default 30 VOBUs (navpacks)). A
new default has been set for the maximum cell duration to allow a full scan
(now 300s). For further information, see section 3.2.7 and 3.2.8 of the
Titlesets that are completely unreferenced are now completely excluded
from the rip (even the IFO/BUP files). This will avoid Decrypter error
messages such as "IFO/BUP Patching failed", make the rip faster
and make the cleanup process much simpler.
As well, if a Titleset is excluded from the rip, its individual files are
no longer checked for validity since they're excluded anyway.
The option to run the "Jump to menu" function in 1-click mode is
now recorded in the INI file (no preference item, but it will remember your
Sped up the start of the process by copying the already copied IFOs from
the temporary directory into the target rip, rather than ripping them again
from the disc. The IFOs are put into a temporary directory during Step 1.
This makes things a lot faster when you have tons of VTS (e.g., Saw 3 or
If you skip Step 3b, the DVD is no longer reloaded (and scanned for BOVs).
It will be though, if you select "Jump to main menu" in the next
Step 1 is now modal, and can be quickly closed using the ESCAPE key.
The code has been improved to handle huge IFOs found in game DVDs.
The UDF parsing code now makes sure that the number of VTS is less 100!
For DVDs with very larger numbers of buttons, an error could happen that
wasn't caught by the new error catching code, which caused an analysis error
in Deal Or No Deal.
Added small delay before sending the keystrokes for the PSL file path to
accommodate Windows VISTA. Tests indicate that RipIt4Me now works well under
Fixed a problem in the analysis, which caused all the VTS to be removed in
Removed some annoying messages (scanning for BOVs on titlesets that were
not ripped) and added protection against crashes in cleanup phase.
Added display of maximum duration for BOV scan and stride at the top of
the log, so we can more easily check what's going on.
Fixed a crash that was reported by several users, at the end of the
cleanup phase. Thanks for posting the debug logs! That helped a lot.
Important NOTE: For those of you who are still having problems where
the drive or the DVD isn't detected, please run the LBAExtract app that's on
the RipIt4Me home page (http://www.ripit4me.org/LbaExtract.zip) and post
your results. We need to get to the bottom of these problems, and we need
your help for this! Thanks in advance!
Finally: RipIt4Me 188.8.131.52 was able to rip Saw III without any change to the
code (although 184.108.40.206 will do it a bit nicer, avoiding the DVD Decrypter
That was a significant achievement! We thank all the beta testers and the
users who've helped bring this app where it is. The only reward we want is
your satisfaction with the program.
