I have a friend in New Zealand whos gone & bought for me the NZ only DVD release of Kung Fu Vampire Killers. He ripped it with AGK as hes very new to ripping & unfortunately it didnt crop right. So I guided him for a couple of hours via msn & screenshots how to use GK. Hes got everything right that I can see but when it came to hit start encode he got an instant error 'could not find stats file.' I instantly remembered getting that error myself so made him go back & check he'd set his first pass as first pass & not as 2nd pass. He proved to me with screenshots that hes got this right but hes still getting the error. Anybody able to give any suggestions as to what else it could be & how to resolve this problem?

Thanks :mrgreen:

Clear your registry settings, i think the tab is called "Settings" there will be two boxes for clearing/restoring default settings.

You need to do that for your codec settings, the problem is there's a duff entry for your stats pass. its happened to me before, and that's always fixed it.

Ok, I'll try that, but where are these registry settings? windows registry? I've not been in there so dont know where to start if that is the case.

its big buttons under options on the gknot gui, but that in turn cleans out registry settings for you.

I think the tab is either "options" or "settings". iirc two buttons are at the top left of the screen. At the bottom right there's your defualt settings for 1st/2nd passes.

OK, we did that & it still errors, hes looked at the guide now & hes confident hes all set right but its stil giving the same error. :(

He's got fed up now so is sending me the vobs instead on his 'worse than UK' dodgy NZ isp so it may take a while to get them. :o :lol:

the error is only caused by registry setting messup, he can also uninstall xvid and reinstall it to clear out the registry if he prefers.

ok, now XVID isnt installed in add/remove programs so how do you uninstall it ?
I right clicked the .dll on this 64bit & clicked install so maybe it is in add/remove programs on 32bit?
I cant check as I've not got a 32bit machine set up.
