7-zipped image auto-run scripts for various emulators
« on: February 22, 2014 - 16:21:56 »
i was searching for ready-to-go solution for running 7-zipped PlayStation images (as they are presented in PD torrents) without need to manually unpack them, mount, run the emu, delete, etc.

so i decided to write simple script from the scratch to do this job for me.

how does it work:

1. you right-mouse-click on a desired PlayStation game (in 7z format) in Windows Explorer.
2. choose Send to menu.
3. choose ePSXe.cmd.
4. then script performs the following:

a. archive is automatically unpacked.
b. then it is loaded in ePSXe.
c. when you closed a game, the script will automatically delete temporary .cue and .bin files from your image folder.

how to set it up:

1. unpack ePSXe-7zip.zip.
2. open ePSXe.cmd in Notepad.
3. replace D:\emulation\ExtraStuff\7-Zip\7z.exe with 7-Zip location in your system.
4. replace D:\emulation\emulators\ePSXe\epsxe.exe with ePSXe location in your system.
5. save the file.
6. press Win+R and write %HOMEPATH%\SendTo, then press OK.
7. copy ePSXe.cmd to that folder.
8. you are done!!

Kind of grave digging the thread...but...

Here's my amateur-ish contribution based on Anton's/abelenki's script. This time it's for loading Sega Saturn's image to DaemonTools and then emulate it using SSF.

Basically it's the same as the original's "How it works", the only change is that now you need to manually set the path for DaemonTools and the extraction temporary folder (preferably in different hard drive) without the trailing slash.

I'm using it with Emucon FE and it works in windowed mode pretty nice (kind of) for one region you already set in SSF.

Hope it can give some kind of help :)
