GEM resource file to *.png converter

Postby ThorstenOtto » Fri Apr 21, 2017 1:20 am

Hi,

some days ago i finished a tool that was primarly intended for EmuTOS, but might be useful also for other cases. It takes a GEM resource file, and writes out a png file for every dialog/alert box. You will find it at

http://www.tho-otto.de/downloads.html

Its not the fastest, but works ;) There are also versions available for Windows and linux.

Very useful for checking translations and aligning of the text fields!

wanted to give it a try on Linux (Ubuntu latest), but unfortunately, there is a shared lib mismatch (libpng.so.14 required while Ubuntu is on libpng.so.16).

Would you be able to provide a statically linked binary (or maybe even sources)?

Thank you!

Really interesting idea. I'll try it as soon as possible. I do have have to mention though that there was already a Rscview from Holger Weets. I think RSCtoPNG or something like that would be better suited to what your program does.

Could you share the source? Is it EmuTOS based?

Hmpf. I've added the dll now to the archive, and also a 2nd version linked against png16.

Sources are also available now (was required anyway, since it is using parts of EmuTOS). Still needs to be cleaned up a bit, but hopefully works.

Yes, source is available now, too. And parts of it are from EmuTOS, yes, in order to get the same results. Thats also why it (unlike ORCS) currently does handle any extended objects, underlined shortcuts etc.
