... which is how you get around having to rename soldat.exe etc?
Yes.

You gonna rewrite it to add compatibility to 1.6.8 then?
As I said, in addition to updating memory addresses and using a new DLL name I've rewritten a code and tried a new interception method of screenshot files creation.
Unfortunately, in some cases it made app to crash. I need to find a way to make it stable before releasing a new version that will be compatible with 1.6.8.

Older version is incompatible too, for the same reason. Wait for an updated one.

Since there is an alpha version of 1.7.0 around, you can test an alpha version of ScrCnv for alpha version of Soldat!


New advantages:
  • With "Delete" (delete converted BMPs) option enabled *.bmp files wouldn't even be written to disk (e.g. to conserve the use of your HDD/SSD)
  • Modified interception method of screenshot files creation (should work faster and more stable now)

+ Added GUI config
+ Added more placeholders for SmartRenaming feature (see ScrCnv.ini)
- Removed Separate feature (could be done with SmartRenaming now)
% Modified SmartRenaming to create folders structure for custom save paths

Install:
  • extract the "IdnDL.dll" file from the attached archive into a Soldat folder.
Uninstall:
  • delete "IdnDL.dll" and "ScrCnv.ini" files from a Soldat folder.

Since there a new 1.7.0 alpha 2 with more fixes and a new feature:
Quote
- Modified screenshots to be saved as png instead of bmp
You can test a new alpha version of ScrCnv!




Features and advantages:
  • Up to 35% better 24-bit PNG compression level (compared with current Soldat's encoder)
  • 8-bit PNG encoding (with optional dithering) [new]
  • JPEG/JPEG 2000 encoding

This version is compatible with Soldat 1.7.0 alpha 2 only

Hey, thanks for the update eventually!
Any chance to see this smart deletion and smart naming for demos?
:)

Thanks for your interest, but since there is only one person (hey-hey, it's nosejj :D) who is interested in such a tool (for screens and/or demos), I have a doubt it will ever be updated...

Well, alrighty then. :(

I think this is the greatest converter tool ever-made, and seeing as the moment there's been no alternative for the last ~4y and changes of this sort haven't got into the game itself, that's why I asked. :P
