pipi.exe anyone ?

Post by Symoon » Sat Apr 08, 2017 8:46 am

Hi,
Anyone ever succeded using libpipi, I mean the program pipi.exe?
There is zero doc for it and when I try to convert a BMP image (like in their command line examples), all I get is "could not load '1989.bmp' ".

(reason is I'd like to try both pictconv and libpipi to compare the results)
Thanks !

Ok got it, it seems it required to be launched in its "The Pimp" environment...
Sorry for the useless topic.

Well, the '-f6 => Sam method (Img2Oric)' option of PictConv *is* from the original source code of Libpipi, for all intent and purpose you will get the same result, the main reason for using PictConv is that you benefit from the larger set of file formats.

Thanks! Cool, I wasn't aware of this, having not tested Pictconv yet.
Good news, a useful post for me, finally ;)
