Quote from: esperknight on February 06, 2014, 09:34:57 PM... would it be possible to have this usable through the command line? AC3 has about 750+ images to be modified and I'd hate for someone to do all those by hand. If it could somehow be done through the command line that'd be awesome (maybe feed in a text file and possibly just have one settings file to make it easier for h, w, font, etc?)
Quote from: Dashman on February 07, 2014, 08:03:57 PMI haven't touched TIM files (although I've fiddled with TIM2 with poor results) and have never use jPSXdec, but I'm guessing you can go TIM -> PNG -> editor -> PNG -> TIM -> reinsert with no problem at all.The editor outputs png files with the size of the original image. If you open a 256 x 256 texture, it will generate a 256 x 256 one; if you take a 256 x 400 one, that's what it will generate (not tested, please confirm), and so on. Once you've finished converting everything, send me one of each colour combination, so that I can update the program to support those.It would be good if you tried reinserting one of each kind of those textures for the first stage when you can, to see if the text is displayed properly (and to figure out what is wrong if it doesn't).It's been a happy coincidence that I had worked on a very similar program before. I hope it proves useful to you.

Quote from: esperknight on February 08, 2014, 08:30:55 PMDashman, I think that'll work fine as I think a good TIM program could convert it fine and use what palette is used for the original.
Quote from: Dashman on February 08, 2014, 08:36:50 PMI haven't tried anything with TIM before, but my experience with TIM2 wasn't very good, mostly because the latest versions of GIMP do something really wrong with palletes of indexed images and the most I could do was royally mess up ingame graphics... I hope you're right, though.
Quote from: esperknight on February 08, 2014, 08:30:55 PMDragonSpike, the tool I used for uncompressing the ULZ files that get spit out from the BPB is custom code I wrote : http://www.mediafire.com/view/37c658q7ztxw57f (In case anyone is curious). CUE wrote the tool to extract out the files from the BPB itself (appreciate that CUE!). I can create a compressor and inserter, just might be a bit Course if someone wants to do it I have no objections at all.Far as insertion for the TIMs and viewing them I recommend this : http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/799/ This util is the one I've had the best results far as viewing as I've tried it with other games and it works great while other TIM programs failed. I think this one can convert to TIM as well but I could be wrong... And I recall that someone passed me a doc (hope he won't mind me sharing) that if I can find it may help with this too...Dashman, I think that'll work fine as I think a good TIM program could convert it fine and use what palette is used for the original. I could be wrong though as I've never had a need to try (usually I've only dealt with custom graphic formats).
Quote from: Dashman on February 08, 2014, 08:36:50 PMAh, I always forget Netbeans' tendency to not keep the jar in the dist folder updated unless you explicitly ask for it, sorry about that... The link should work now.I admit I got a bit confused with all this talk about sizes (mainly because I haven't taken a look at the BPB dump), I take it there's a "medium" size? If you need it, send an example of it and I'll add it to the next version. I'll add the font you sent as well, definitely better than Sans.I haven't tried anything with TIM before, but my experience with TIM2 wasn't very good, mostly because the latest versions of GIMP do something really wrong with palletes of indexed images and the most I could do was royally mess up ingame graphics... I hope you're right, though.
Quote from: DragonSpikeXIII on February 08, 2014, 09:44:47 PMDashman I'm sorry for my last post, I guess it was a stream of consciousness thing. I'll do it right this time, with images.Overall Disc 1 looks like this-> https://picasaweb.google.com/101579511926372120323/AC3TextSizes
