bitmap2bnr and bitmap2tga tool

Post by makeo » Wed Jun 05, 2019 9:36 am

bitmap2bnr is a small command line tool that combines bitmap2tga and GCBanner (by loser) to directly convert a bitmap to a version 1 Gamecube banner file (.bnr).

bitmap2tga is another small command line tool that converts a bitmap to a 24bit tga image.

The following bitmap formats are supported for both tools:
bmp, gif, exif, jpg, png and tiff

Both tools require .NET Framework 3.0 or higher to run and therefore only work with Windows.

Usage:
Read the howto.txt provided with each tool

There are most likely better tools out there to do the same thing but I hope this might be useful to someone the same way it was useful to me

Nice work :)

Did you write these, if so, source would be nice if someone wanted to port it or build it for another OS.

Thanks :)
Yes I did write bitmap2tga myself and the source is already included in the zip (It's written in C# good luck porting that)
and bitmap2bnr is a .cmd script for Windows and you can just open it in Notepad or something similar.
But GCBanner is by someone else and I do not have the source for it (maybe someone else does)
