Satsuki IroPng2DDS simple gui
« on: 2020-04-05 19:55:47 »
Hello.

DDS (BC7) is a common texture compression format used by lots of moderns games.
And now with ffnx 1.50+ you can use this format with FF7 instead of png.

It's having lots of adventages:
-It's realy fast for loading and all the job is done with graphic card and not cpu
-It's take less memory (about 25/30% of png) so no more texture corruption problems
-It's visualy loseless
-It's compressing well so the iro or 7z share of the mod will be realy lighter (for my full pack 7z png is 6go and 7z dds is 2.3go)

To convert from png to dds i made this simple gui witch is self explainatory, but if you need help, just ask ^^

It can also convert a classic iro file mod to iro dds file.
It Can also convert dds to png (as dds is a lossy codec, don't do dds > png > dds ... you'll have quality loss after some time)

If you have bugs converting, install the vc runtimes (provided in "runtime" subfolder)

Added an option to convert classic iro to dds iro in one clic
(maybe some mod can move this post to ff7 tools as with iro conversion it's more an ff7 tool now)

Version 1.12:
-Added an option to normalise png input to avoid unacurate color in some conversion with texconv
-The iro conversion now analyse the preview file in the xml and don't convert them to dds format, so previews are ok in 7H

new version:
-If a file is in bas resolution and can't use mipmap properly, it's converted without mipmap and logued, so you can manulay correct it if you want, but it won't crash even if you don't ^^

For some reason, I can't drop anything into the file list box. I've tried PNG, DDS and IRO (not mixing them together) but my mouse cursor always changes to the "Not Allowed" symbol. I don't think it's something with your program, so just wondering if you know anything in Windows that might cause this.

I am using Windows 8.1.

Been getting that error message as soon as I ran the program.

Do you use it from a folder where you have full accèus like the desktop ?
Could you try to install vb6 runtime ? (https://sourceforge.net/projects/vb6extendedruntime/)
