CIUv2 public version

Postby BAMsE » 26 Feb 2016, 18:42


Current version is 2.0.4 beta 5 (hotfix 3). Please report any issues and ideas. Also help in translation is welcome.

Actual things-to-do is placed HERE

If you have any question or the lack of clarity of using CIUv2 please use THIS thread.

Due to some changes in subfolders and unnecessary files removal, content of this archive will be used as a base for feature updates, for The Core users.

CIUv2 (Custom Installer Ultimate ver.2) is a powerful INNO Setup script created by yener90. Its history began in 2011 on - one of the online forums dedicated to game conversions. The yener's intent was to create an easy-to-use tool able to create custom installers for repackaged games. That's how the CI (Custom Installer) was created. With the help of many people the project developed quickly, gaining new features and became easier to use. This led to the creation of CIUv2, which was gaining more and more popularity day by day.

The growing popularity and the fact that the project was completely opensource caused that some users have appropriated a portion or all of the code and published under his own name. Administration of didn't stand up for the yener's rights to the script and started a cold war with him. Consequently yener90 withdrew, leaving me the script. As it turned out, another common practice on was stealing the concept and graphic elements of installers created by experienced users. For these reasons, along with several users of mentioned site, we created a new place to find and publish conversions based on CIUv2. So welcome on DVD9toDVD5.

Although I'm not a programmer, I made every effort to fix all the bugs and introduce new features to meet the expectations of users and
the requirements of modern games. Throughout all this time the script was available only to a narrow group of users, for fear of another theft. Now, thanks to the tools provided by altef_4, I can give you a public version of the script that contains all the fixes and improvements made by me. So have fun and share your awesome creations with us. Good luck.

  1. Download CIU_v2.0.4.rar and extract completely.
  2. If there is any update.rar please download it and extract to the same folder as above.
  3. Prepare all audio and graphic elements of your installer and place it under Setup subfolder.
  4. Tweak setup.ini to set all options as application name, buttons position, redistributables and so on...
  5. Run compiler.exe to create your installer.

You can find all png names and all available options in attached _setup.ini file.
There is also a great WIKI created by VollachR.


Code: Select all

V2.0.4.0 beta 5
- [hotfix 3] fixed problem with not creating uninstall.exe,

- [hotfix 2] added checking of setup.ico and setup.ini presence,

- [hotfix 1] fixed obligatory files checking,

- solved problem with uninstalling when ‘PACK GAME’ option was used (now uninstall.tmp will be created in the root
  folder of game dir and compressed among other game files; during installation process it will be used to create
  uninstall.exe; you need to use ‘EXTERNAL’ option in this case to make uninstaller work properly).

V2.0.4.0 beta 4
- [hotfix 4] disabled solid compression on PACKGAME option,

- [hotfix 3] fixed double time converted color of Title,

- [hotfix 2] significantly reduced CPU and RAM usage,

- [hotfix 1] fixed ‘PACK GAME’ folder recognition,

- completely rewritten Update function – no more possibility to data loss or files version mismatching after setup
  error or aborting by user; 

- added DirectX version checking to the Requirements Page; corresponding option for [MinSystemReq], [RecSystemReq]
  and [MaxSystemReq] is DirectX=

  SmallInstaller buttons,

- few functions ported to peterf1999’s ISab.dll,

V2.0.4.0 beta 3
- [hotfix 1] [CheckAllSmallButton] changed to ‘Check All’ checkbox for both Launchers and Components (visible if
  there’s more than 2 elements),
- added ShadowColor= option for [StandardButton], [StandardButtonAR], [SmallButton] and [TextStage] (black by default);
  also tweaked shadow for [SmallButton] and [TextStage] to be more subtle,

- added NeededFor= option for [Component#] sections to determine which components are dependent (and making

- added support for archives/files splitting via included splitter.exe (slices must be stored in some archive with zero
  compression and extracted to {app}),
- added new entry to [ExtractSettings] section:
  last parameter tells the installer whether file is an archive and should be extracted; leave it blank for standard
  file that needs merging only,
- rearranged [ExtractSettings] section order to allow mixing extracting and merging (earlier installer proceeded at
  first all arc, next all 7zip, and last all rar archives; now you can mix them same as merging),
- implemented pckr.dll and bp.dll (both by altef_4) to completely prevent png and mp3 extraction (not available on
  public version atm),

- added Exe64Path= option in [Executable#] sections (for different exe paths on x86 and x64 OS; thx KaktoR for info),

- added Alignment= option to the [Logo] section (available values are Left, Right and Center; if not present title
  will be aligned to the left); Center option is no longer needed,

- updated precomp (v0.4.2 alpha) and srep (3.93a beta) (thx kassane),

- dispack support added,
