Another fundraiser..

This fundraiser is multiple lots we have been offered for our museum, most of these are extremely early systems, and many contain unreleased games and history that would other wise be lost.

The goal for this is split into groups, we have awhile to sort this one and lots would be paid as funded. The total includes paypal fee's added and shipping costs included excluding taxes, we put 10% as we're often charged different rates depending on donators locations.

Hi guys I'm trying to shrink my gdi images to use them with my gdemu but when I run the python script it says the images have been shrunked but when I check the sizes it's the same size it originally had.

Some games don't compress much. Have you checked the exact file size? At least, the .bin files should be converted to iso.

The output of the program would help.

I had this problem too, however I managed to determine why it was happening.

Make sure your gditools master folder with the python tools files and game image is not exceeding the windows 256 character file/path length limitation otherwise some games won't shrink.

Best way to test is to place GDI tools master files folder on the root of your hard drive, like C:\gdi tools master for example, then ensure your game folder and filename length do not exceed the 256 character limit for the .gdi image files directory.

Some .GDI filenames were considerably long so you can also try shortening them first to shrink then rename them back after.

Example of a path exceeding 256/260 characters.

C:\users\public\that users folder\some really ridiculously long as file path\games of various sizes and names exceeding the windows file path limitation\gdi tools master\my game directory\game which has a long filename and folder path.gdi
