    Whether I merge them or not will be later down the line, keeping AR wasn't asked for by many people anyway.

    Is it possible to have a sound clip play along with the animation?

    I want boot animations but I have the no screeninit version. How do I change it to screeninit?

    If you're using the current a9lh versions I believe you just have to rename it arm9loaderhax_si.bin or something along those lines

    Probably because people already resized the video/gif when they cut it.

    You have to compile it yourself or find someone who has. Either way, most of the time it won't be useful

    I don't know how to do that. Why isn't it just a program already?:mellow:
    And why won't it be useful, isn't the purpose of it is to be useful?

    The payload wont work correctly unless the compressor achieves a 50% compression ratio which tends to be really rare. And you could always ask @Wolfvak for a copy of the executable, I'd give it to you myself but I dont have my dev environment completely set up to compile it for you.

    Is okay, someone already sent me one. :D
    I just wish i didn't have to bother anyone for it. I just wonder why it wasn't already made.

    So the compresson thing is random huh, is that why you said is rare to achieven a 50% rate?

    Its not random more than it depends on the content of what's being compressed. Something like my Doom animation may hit 50% or higher ratio while others that are a lot more busy will likely average out at 10-30%

    So it basically dependant on the file provided. Is there a way to improve or maybe a guide for suggestion on optimizations? So far the program has only the clue for 400X240 resolution, and between 1-30 FPS as possible clues. So if there anything else i should know, that be nice. :D

    Its not worth sacrificing your quality just to compress, at that point its just a lose-lose situation. Just go with the rule of thumb that you should be matching the FPS of the source file with what you're telling the script to use as the FPS. Don't be afraid to try compressing it and if it doesn't work then its not worth compressing at all.

    Okay, thanks for the advice. I guess, is not always worth it to have 89MB animations :P

    Hello. I have a Problem with gif imagen when i try to made the boot. the .bat program say

    "Ffmpeg" is not recognized as an internal or external command, program or batch file. The system can not find the specified archive.
    Do you want this to be compressed with ban9comp? [Y,N]?.

    how can i fix this?
