Im running soldat mod launcher to run soldat every time(I has a mod I love but I want to keep soldat the same, like not overwrite original files). So the fact you have to rename the .exe's, might be a problem for me, but I would love to have this program. Help plz

Please read the main post a bit more carefully.

SSC will pass any arguments on to the actual game.exe - in other words, mods and clickers will still continue to work with no problems whatsoever - and then simply convert any newly created screenshots as soon as Soldat is shut down.

Nice job Toumaz. :D
This will totally save me from manually converting those screenshots and save me some time to do other....stuff. ^^

Indeed; there's a bug in there somewhere that I haven't gotten around to fixing just yet. I'd recommend not using it until that's fixed; which will probably never happen. :P

So what now? Sometimes screens aren't converted but deleted?
Aww...I wanna use this tool - pls fix it!

PS: You think it's too risky to just give it a try on my 1187 screens (2,62 GB) ?
Worked quite well.
First tried 1 screen - null problemo. (PNG looks exactly the same as BMP, JPG sucks)
How about 10? - great.
Now 100 - superb.
200 - et voila.
400 - hm... it says 400 converted...but I think one is missing because in total they're only 710...
OK, 300 - yeah, works again.
The rest, 176 - done!

result:
1186 of 1187 converted (never mind the missing one - maybe me made some counting mistake)
Before: 2,62 GB
After: 686 MB

I love u, Toumaz  :-*

Correct, and for the time being, I'm all too lazy to try and track it down. People have said their automatic endgame screens aren't converted but instead deleted, which is kinda ... very bad.

OK, I have about 5 gbs of screens. Under half of them are endgame. Are you 100% sure the endagme ones will be delted and not converted?

Nope! I can't really figure out what I might be doing wrong in the code, either, come the entire missing screenshot issue, so try stuff at your own risk, pretty much. The program might blow up your PC, too.

Maybe release the code since there are a bunch of people here who're quite comfortable with .NET and'll figure it out pretty quickly?
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

bug report:
The tool overwrites existing screenshots of the same name.

steps to reproduce:

1. existing screenshots in the screens dir at launch:
screenshot-10-11-04-01.png

2. Launch game, hit f4 to take screenshot:
Now we have
screenshot-10-11-04-01.png
screenshot-10-11-04-01.bmp
next to one another

3. Exit game
screenshot-10-11-04-01.bmp gets converted to screenshot-10-11-04-01.png, overwriting the original .png file.

either this kid has a lightbulb up his butt, or his colon has a great idea.

I'll have a look at it and post the source for whoever is desperate enough to wanna try to poke at it when I visit home in a week or two.

It's not about BMP being bad. It's about BMP being BIG. So why having a big file if you can have a (much) smaller file which has almost no viewing differences?

My "Screens"-folder is at the moment....wow, fuck :o...3,51GB with 1597 BMP's. I definitely need to get rid of most of them and convert the "important" ones.
See, and once again we have one example why "we rly need it". :)

Id appreciate if someone could indeed fix it, since there is - afaik - no alternative that works the same way (i.e. automatically) ;)

There are so many batch image converters allowing you to convert whole image folder with just a few clicks...
I'm mostly using Fast stone image viewer...

Yes, and that is different from the way Toumaz' converter works!
