Stardew Valley

Mod Upload stuck in malware detection, because of file type.

Hi everyone,

Im not sure if this is the right place, so sorry in advance if it isnt.

Yesterday I uploaded an update for my Stardew Valley Modification Don't Disturb
The file stucks in the malware scanner, because of the file type.

The modification has a LITE and FULL version.
The LITE version will work like all other content patcher modifications, too.
The difference to the FULL version is that the game must be restated before a sound is reactivated again which can be inconvenient.

The FULL version needs soundfiles from the game to be working. For this reason did I wrote a Batch Script which controlls unxwb.exe (well known soundfile extractor command-line and listed on SDV Wiki) and ffmpeg.exe (well known Audio & Video converter command-line) to extract & encode the needed soundfiles. In an outdated version of my mod did I delivered the soundfiles with the mod, but I feeling not good about that and this was the reason why I wrote the Batch Script so the users are able to unpack & encode the soundfiles from there game.

The Batch Script does follows and nothing else:
- Checking if unxwb.exe & ffmpeg.exe is located in the same folder as the script. If not show Error.
- Checking if manifest.json & content.json is present in the mod folder. If not show Error.
- Checking the UniqueID of manifest.json & content.json to get sure that its Don't Disturb 1.0.0-lite. If not show Error.
- Checking if Stardew Valley.exe is present to get sure to be in right directory. If not show Error.
- Checking if Wave Bank.xwb is present. If not show Error.
- Start unxwb.exe to extract PCM WAV from Wave Bank.xwb to "..\Don't Disturb\snd"
- Start ffmpeg.exe to encode PCM WAV from "..\Don't Disturb\snd" to OGG Vorbis to same directory.
- Delete all remaining temporary PCM WAV files from "..\Don't Disturb\snd"
- Overwrite manifest.json & content.json from Don't Disturb 1.0.0-lite with Don't Disturb 1.0.0-full
- Check if Don't Disturb 1.0.0-full was successfully installed.

The Problem is now that VirusTotal has some malware scanners which doesn't support Batch Scripts. When I would known this before did I wrote something different. In my eyes is this silly, because when someone think a *.bat file is more risky as an *.exe or *.ps1 did I really have to lough out loud.

I have allready written an e-mail to the support, but I guess will last long so I decide to open a thread and would ask for help.

Would be very kind if someone from NexusMods can help me about to clear this up, because Im a Modder which is more focused on quality of life & bugfix modifications.
Let me know if I have to deliver something like a video.

kindly regards
