HCP.TTP not extracting all images from HYP file

Postby TheNameOfTheGame » Sat Apr 13, 2019 1:40 am

I am trying to reconstruct the source of ACSPRO.HYP, but HCP.TTP from ST-Guide v1.5 isn't extracting all the images. Only the last 13 images are saved to disk after HCP exits. The resulting source file itself looks ok and includes all the references to the non-existent (not extracted) image files. Using the parameters "-r -oACSPRO.TXT ACSPRO.HYP" for the reconstruction.

Is there another program to reconstruct the source of HYP files or a way to get HCP.TTP to extract all the images along with the source?

Yes, the new version i wrote ;) It is also called hcp.ttp but was written from scratch, and should be much better in reconstructing graphics in general. It is available here. And the best thing: it can not only recompile your hyp file, but also compile again the generated source ;)

Excellent - it worked great! All the images were extracted. Thanks for the tool. :cheers:

Do you know if there is a tool to convert STG source files to clickable PDFs?

Not that i know of. I think it won't be easy, since you would need a proper table-of-contents, which is usually not available in STG files. And of course you can view any HYP file using http://tho-otto.de/hypview/index.php
