Published on: September 5, 2014
I have two small tool updates available for download.?? VBScript to Win32 Executable Tool My VBS2EXEcutable tool used to be GUI only. Using the tool myself to generate quick “Uninstall” links for most of my tools that the user does not have to search for it in the Windows Control Panel, I realized that a command line version is really what I need, to generate a new Uninstaller EXE via a pre-configured batch file in the programs project directory. VBS2EXE Command Line by Roy/SAC —————————— Usage: —————————— VBS2EXECommandLine.exe <SCRIPT> <EXE> [/mode:w|c|s] [/batch] [/icon:<ICON>] [/h|/?] —————————— Basic: —————————— VBS2EXECommandLine.exe <SCRIPT> <SCRIPT> = the script file to process for example c:\temp\myscript.vbs —————————— Parameters: —————————— <EXE> = The Output EXE File Name* * If suppressed, read settings from script file is assumed. See ‘Settings from Script’ below. /mode: c|w|s = Script Execution Mode (Default: c) ‘c’ (or ‘cscript’ or ‘cscript.exe’) = Use CScript ‘w’ (or ‘wscript’ or ‘wscript.exe’) = Use WScript ‘s’ (or ‘start’ or ‘direct’) = Call Directly /icon:<ICON> = Optional, Path to .ICO Icon File to Include —————————— Switches: —————————— /batch = Use Batch mode. Only valid for CScript to enabled /b Option /? or /h = This help screen —————————— Settings from Script: —————————— Conversion options are automatically added to <SCRIPT> Source. This allows the simple execution of this tool the next time You only need to pass on the <SCRIPT> file as the only parameter. You can also add the settings yourself before hand, if you wish. The Settings[…]

A Little .FNT Tool for Programmers

  I saw this format first in the source code of an earlier version of PabloDraw by Curtis Wensley aka Eto and found it very useful. I saw it again used for a EGA/VGA DOS Font collection from 1992 by Joseph (Yossi) Gil (fntcol16.zip), which also comes with a set of tools, such as BREAKCPI.COM, which breaks the current EGA.CPI into fonts or DUMPFONT.COM, which is another tool to extract system fonts. The fonts are naturally all bitmap fonts, mono-spaced and monochrome (black/white). The size per character is usually one of the following (Width X Height in pixels): 8×8, 8×14 or 8×16 pixels. The font files in the collection by Joseph lack the “HEADER” though, meaning the width and height information are not part of the file. He simply used the file extensions “Fxx“, where “xx” specified the height (width wasn’t needed, because all his fonts had the same width (8 pixels)). Since I added a header to all the fonts in his collection and made it part of mine, you don’t have to worry about that anymore. However, if you happen to use one of his tools to extract new fonts, you can add a header very easily by using the DOS command: “copy /b Fxx.BIN + FONTFILE.FNT NEWFONTFILE.FNT“ “Fxx.BIN” should be one of the files from this archive , depending on the font HEIGHT, e.g. F08.BIN or F16.BIN. But enough of this and lets get to the actual stuff here. The .FNT file format that I am introducing[…]

ANSI/ASCII Converter Tool Version 1.05.00 Release

Categories: TEXT ART, Tools
Tags: ,
Comments: No Comments
Published on: July 12, 2014
It’s time for new releases and updates obviously so here comes another one, an update of my ANSI/ASCII converter tool, which allows you to convert via GUI or command line, single file or batch, the conversion of ASCII Text Files, like oldskool NFO files and ANSI and ANSI like files (such as Avatar, PCBoard, WildCat BBS 2.X/3.X or Text .BIN) to various other formats, including Image types (.GIF, .PNG, .JPG, .BMP, .ICO and more) and also to HTML Web or Video Formats (which is meant for the conversion of ANSI Animations), such as the popular for the WEB Flash format (.FLV), but also .WMV, .AVI, .MPG or even Animated Gif. Furthermore, Oldskool ASCII Text files from DOS can also be converted to modern Unicode format text files in UTF-8 or UTF-16 format. Okay, so much for the summary. The core functionality of the tool did not change much, more the handling and additional features were affected. ?? http://www.roysac.com/roy-tools/ansi-ascii-converter.html   List of changes: Fixed problem if source ASCII used only LF instead of CRLF for line breaks. Shows Loading Screen, if started and files from previous session existed. If specific setting is clicked, only that setting will be enabled in settings screen (less confusing and easier to find). Settings irrelevant for current option don’t open settings dialog anymore. Ability to Pause or Abort running conversion batch. This option was also added to the Library, including events to handle, including: StatusChanged ProcessFinished ListItemRemoved Additional Properties Added: Status Cancelled (boolean) Additonal Methods: CancelProcessing[…]

Scene Fonts Collection Volume 2 Release

Categories: Artscene, Collections
Comments: No Comments
Published on: June 25, 2014
It is almost up to the day 5 years ago that I released the Scene Fonts Collection Volume 1. Unfortunately the first Volume isn’t officially available for download for quite a while now, specifically since the day when Mediafire.com decided to kill my whole PRO account with all its files because of some copyright complaints (I don’t want to go into details with that now. It was just meant as a FYI.). Volume I contained back then about 600 files, Volume II today has over 1,000 files now, again pixel art fonts ripped and captured from Crack Intros, Demos and Games across most major release platforms. The fonts are somewhat sorted like the last time around, namely by font size. Also like last time, there are many dupes, or more accurately.. near dupes, mostly because of slight variations in the graphics files for various reason. Again, my motto is: “Rather have it twice or more than not at all!” Download ROY-SFNT2.ZIP (55 MB) Now!   I created a new RoySAC.com release intro for this occasion, yes, again using OSDM for the job (I hadn’t have the time yet to get my head around Intro Maniac, sorry). Unlike most of my previous OSDM productions , there is no full-screen version available for this new release of mine. It makes use of the “Skin” feature of OSDM, which can’t be used for intro productions running in full-screen mode. The skin became integrated into the theme for the intro that releasing a full-screen[…]
