    Hi GBAtemp :D!

    I'm having some difficulty with the DIOS MIOS screenshot converter. Basically...I have no idea how to use it. I took a screenshots by pressing R+Z on the P4 controller, transfered over the scrn_00.raw file to my computer, put in the same folder as YCbYCr2BMP.exe ran it,a command prompt window immediately appeared and then disappeared, but no BMP. I tried dragging the file onto the exe, the same thing happened.
    I'm at a loss because I can barely find any info about this tool in particular.

    Does anyone know how to work this program?

    open notepad and type the following:
    save as "convert_img.bat" and put it in the same folder as YCbYCr2BMP.

    Edit: add a '@' on the first line before 'echo off' (it seems the forum doesn't like prompt commands).

    Alright I made the prompt command just as you specified. The prompt window now doesn't immediately disappear, but the last line of the window says "press any key to continue" and no matter what I press, the window closes, and still no BMP. For clarification, I have two screenshots in the folder, one named scrn_00.raw and one named raw.bin.

    Any idea what to do from here?

    oh sorry...

    where the asterisks (*) are replace them with the correct file names that you're using, of course leaving the file extensions as they are.

    Hmm, ok I changed my first screenshot to "raw.bin" and have it in the folder with the original exe. I changed the asterisks in the .bat to "raw.bin" and "test.bmp". Still, nothing happened. I also tried leaving the * in *.bmp, same results.:(

    try changing the second line to this:
    feel free to change 'fancy.bmp' to whatever file name you want, but leave the file extension (.bmp) as it is.

    Edit: To be honest with you, I've personally never used this before. But, I do have some idea how to get it working though.

    I tried that too before you suggested it. Nothing :\

    I uploaded one of my screenshots if you'd be willing to experiment with the program yourself!

    somethin is wrogn with that screenshot.(is green)

    anyway the format is .raw not .bin


    like this.

    Echo off
    title YCbYCr2BMP raw2bmp
    YCbYCr2BMP.exe capture.raw capture.bmp
    echo.
    pause


    where capture is your screenshot. ''just rename'' scrn_xx, to capture''

    I renamed my scrn_00.raw to capture.raw, and I assume that first echo is supposed to be (atsign)echo off, I tried both though and it still doesn't work. :wacko:
    The file I'm writing this in is just called test.bat, does it need some special file name?
    All of these files are currently in the same folder as the .exe

    I think a better bat shall be:

    Code:
    (atsign)Echo off
    cls
    echo.
    for %%f in (*.raw) do YCbYCr2BMP -a "%%f" "%%f.bmp"
    echo.
    pause
    this tries to convert all .raw files in the same folder, doesn't need to rename to a specific name (but the extension of the files needs to be .raw)
