Quote from: Mugi on September 21, 2018, 06:55:47 PMif you want to get back the original japanese game, i'd say no (that i know of atleast)but if you do have both the patched copy and an unpatched copy of the game, you could always make a new patch out of it.i suppose technically it wouldn't be the same file and most likely wouldn't share the same CRC either, but functionally it shouldn't really make a difference.
Quote from: yetisyny on September 22, 2018, 09:50:30 AMI think that this will be faster than making a BPS patch but the downside is the patch file will probably be much bigger.
Quote from: Mugi on September 22, 2018, 03:40:08 PMxdelta and the size of it's patches really largely depends on how it has been used, if you use the commandline "-B ****" (***being the scan block size here) that defines the maximum block size to be the same size as the image file itself, it will compare differendials between the whole image as opposed to the default setting which to my knowledge is not very large.for example, my translation patch for evangelion: girlfriend of steel for psp, with default settings of xdelta, produced a patch of the size of 220MBand by using the switch "-B 536870912" (536870912 meaning 536,8MB, the size of the .iso file) reduced the patch from 220MB to 40MB

Quote from: yetisyny on September 24, 2018, 09:08:43 AMI just wanted to say that it is AWESOME that you translated that game, Evangelion: Girlfriend of Steel 2
Quote from: mz on September 22, 2018, 12:37:16 PMxdelta making bigger files than BPS? Do you have any examples to prove that?Last time I tested them, BPS was slower and produced bigger files, and it didn't work at all with CD-sized files. ("This file is too big to handle." or something.)
Quote from: KingMike on September 24, 2018, 05:43:46 PMAs I recall, BPS used an XOR method that was designed to be reversable. That's probably why it was large.UPS was the successor format which dropped the reversability as it was decided to be a rarely-useful feature.Unless I am remembering wrong.
