KMPlayer is a audio/video player that supports a wide range of file formats, including AVI, MKV, MPEG, OGM, MP4, ASF etc. without any additional codecs installed. It also has full VCD/DVD playback functionality. In addition, it is able to play incomplete/damaged AVI files, or media files that are locked while downloading or sharing.

Note: In the past, this application managed open source components against the terms of their respective licenses. The current status of this is unclear.

Since latest version -at least- the exe file can't be extracted with Universal Extractor / Pea Extractor / 7Zip.
Only results in 0 bits sized files.

kanu: thanks for your post but I just tested both with UniExtractor and 7zip and both worked fine.

kanu on 2017-05-23 05:20

webfork: Thanks for answering. It looks like the file I got from MajorGeeks is corrupted because I redownloaded and still didn't extract correctly. I searched for another host and now all the files extract as usual.
(Looks like I can't post vtotal urls here)

CloneSpy v3.34

  • Suggested by Fluffy

CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files with exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time, or location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. This can be an issue for example if you have different versions of a file and you want to find and remove the older versions. CloneSpy is able to find zero-byte files.

Note: The installer now allows you to choose between a 32 or 64-bit version of CloneSpy.

  • The View CSC-file window now has a search function.

  • The pattern matcher now recognizes matching string even if the pattern ends with an asterisk.

A lot of people here trying to delete multiples of the same image - I just wanted to give a shout out to Dup Detector, which is a great piece of software that does exactly that.

Dup Detector doesn't just do file-size/checksum analysis, it actually analyzes the images to find similarities. E.g. one could be black & white and the other can be color, or one can be watermarked, or one could be taken 2 seconds later because someone blinked & it'll find both and display them to you and ask which one you want to delete or if you want to keep both. You can choose how strict it is in its matching algorithm - 100% mach, 95% match etc.

You can even have it set up to automatically select which one to delete based on rules - e.g. the smaller one. Then you just approve the selection by hitting the space bar, or you can just let it do its thing automatically, or you can go full-manual mode and click the image you want to delete. Super fast way to delete duplicates and easy to use. I've used it professionally to manage large image catalogs that had a lot of duplicates of different sizes.

Unfortunately, it's not portable.

The latest version I have is 3.3.02 from July 8, 2011. You can get an earlier version from rareware.

Version 0.97 is no longer portable, saves settings to AppData.

olliebean on 2016-07-09 21:33

As mentioned in PE Soft's comment above, version 0.97 *is* portable if you download the executable file version, it stores its settings in the same directory as the EXE file. I have tested this and nothing is stored in %appdata% or in the registry.

Charming old-school graphics, seems to have a fairly active community, constantly updated, now at v112.3, don't know if portable.

Cool, didn't even know this existed... 8)

The current website link points to the 128 bit 'pakset' page, Simutrans main site is at http://www.simutrans.com/en/.

This entry needed a desperate clean-up and update. I've replaced the pak128 download link with the actual game and added a note about the graphics paks. The rest of the entry has been updated appropriately.
