Yeah, I don't. Even if the only reason was "I don't know exactly where the WAV masters are at this point," I'm unmoved by the argument that WAVC is preferable. It still makes things markedly larger and there's a minimal tradeoff in the installation experience to use oggdec. (And, if I'm being completely honest with myself, I do favor continuing to use an approach I pioneered.)
I'm not suggesting to use WAVC (I used to complain tons about having to download the audio over a 56k line). There are hybrid oggdec/WeiDU approaches that make (un,re)installing WAV files faster and/or stabler across the three platforms; of course, choosing the 'right' approach between the 50 or so possible ones feels (and is) just jerking yourself off over a dozens lines of code.
If you don't want to move to an hybrid approach (which would actually be somewhat helpful for Linux and Mac users), some quick and easy steps to streamlining the process for Windows users are to
- remove the NOTEPAD path/to/readme.txt
from the .bat (it's already in the README flag, which opens the readme before installing components)
- change AT_EXIT to AT_NOW (processed right now, not after saving the tlk, so safe against people closing weidu too soon and/or strange stack operations)
- change _INTERACTIVE versions of AT_NOW and AT_UNINSTALL to the non-INTERACTIVE versions (you're bound to uninstall but not reinstall audio or something like that).
But I'll need to uninstall all components of Kelsey-SOA as well, probably, won't I? Isn't there some extra TP2 maneuver you need to do when the meaning of a component changes? (i.e., it was the SOA flirt pack in the old rev but now it's the portraits, or whatever)
You need a DEPRECATED component:
BEGIN ~Solaufein dialogue~
DEPRECATED ~Included in the main component~
just put it in place of all removed and/or merged components (E.G. Sola dialogue, banter accelerator).
