Hey Miloch. I'm hitting an error when trying to convert standard rakshasa animations (MRAK*.BAM) to bmp. It successfully converts first 14 frames but on the 15th this happens:

 

Converting frame 15 (compressed): reading datasize -21067 from offset 23429 ...
ERROR: illegal 44-byte read from offset 3080 of 0-byte file INNER_PATCH "%fm%"
ERROR: [MRAKG1.BAM] -> [bambatch/bam/MRAKG1.BAM] Patching Failed (COPY) (Failure("INNER_PATCH \"%fm%\": read out of bounds"))
Stopping installation because of error.

 

Looks like the patching goes on even if the calculated frame size was invalid.

Basically, just added skipping any frame with frame size 1 x 1 or less - those "pixel" frames are really useless for editing, and if anyone needs to reinsert them later into modified animation bams it should be easy to just clone any one of them with weidu.  Rakshasa animation, as it happens, contains tons of those, so this greatly speeds up conversion process too. The loop index variable still goes up for skipped frames, so for example if out of 100 frames 14-65 were skipped, you'll get *0.bmp through *13.bmp and *66.bmp through *100.bmp in the output folder.

Whoa, it's pro5! Where've you been the last few years? Thanks for the code check - you are no doubt right about those 1x1 frames. There've been recent checks added in DLTCEP and BAM Resizer for those frames which also caused errors, so why not here as well. Though this tool might become at least semi-deprecated eventually if other tools take its place (always my hope for hacks like this and p5tweaks haha).

Hey Miloch, :Poke:
 
Any chance I can convince you to release an update for BAM Batcher with the updates you have made to your local copy?  I'm assuming it at least includes the previous code fixes from this topic as well as the mass-repaletting stuff? To quote:
 

I added mass-repaletting to BAM Batcher a while back but I guess I probably never released it. You'll have to add the code to the tp2 manually until I get around to updating it properly (might be a while). This is right before the Moinesse's BAM section in my local copy:

//! Repalette BAMs from a BMP ///////////////////////////////////////////////
BEGIN ~Repalette BAMs from a BMP~
SUBCOMPONENT ~BAM Batcher~
NO_LOG_RECORD

OUTER_SPRINT tpath ~~

COPY ~bambatch/bam~ ~bambatch/bam~
  READ_ASCII 0x0 sg (4) //Signature
  PATCH_IF (~%sg%~ STRING_EQUAL_CASE ~BAMC~ = 1) BEGIN
    READ_LONG 0x8 dl //Uncompressed data length
    DECOMPRESS_REPLACE_FILE 0xc (SOURCE_SIZE - 0xc) dl
    sz = dl
  END ELSE BEGIN
    sz = SOURCE_SIZE
  END
  SPRINT tres ~%SOURCE_RES%~
  TO_LOWER tres
  INNER_PATCH ~%tres%~ BEGIN
    READ_ASCII 0 tpal (6)
  END
  READ_LONG 0x10 pf //Palette offset
  INNER_ACTION BEGIN
    ACTION_IF FILE_EXISTS ~bambatch/%tpath%%tpal%.bmp~ BEGIN
      COPY ~bambatch/%tpath%%tpal%.bmp~ ~bambatch/%tpath%%tpal%.bmp~
        READ_ASCII 0x0 sg (2) //Signature
        PATCH_IF (~%sg%~ STRING_EQUAL_CASE ~BM~ = 1) BEGIN
          READ_ASCII 0x36 pt (1024) //Color table
          pq = 1
        END ELSE BEGIN
          PATCH_PRINT ~Palette.bmp is not a valid uncompressed bitmap.~
          pq = 2
        END
      BUT_ONLY
    END ELSE BEGIN
      PRINT ~No %tpath%%tpal%.bmp exists.~
      OUTER_SET pq = 2
    END
  END
  PATCH_IF pq = 1 BEGIN     
    WRITE_ASCIIE pf ~%pt%~ //Palette
    dl = SOURCE_SIZE //Data length
    COMPRESS_REPLACE_FILE 0 sz 9
    INSERT_BYTES 0x0 0xc
    WRITE_ASCII 0x0 ~BAMCV1  ~
    WRITE_LONG 0x8 sz
  END
BUT_ONLY
I forget how it works exactly, but you'll need to have all the BAMs you want to repalette in your bambatch/bam folder and the palette you want for your new BAMs in uncompressed BMP format in the main folder (same palette order as the original palette, just different colors). Always keeps backups of course. You'll need to re-run it for as many different repaletted colors you want for the original BAMs, but it goes through them all at once and applies the same palette.

Sorry, Sam... been insanely busy. I'm assuming you know enough of basic WeiDU to add that snippet option to your own local copy? Yeah, I should update it but meh... as I mentioned to pro5, we have newer methods that may deprecate a lot of this functionality (some of it anyway). If you're actually doing some stuff that needs this sort of thing, drop me a PM with some description of what you're trying to do. Might be able to suggest some better alternative.

I have no immediate need, was just in a mood to update, and consolidate unofficial updates to, the modding tools I know of or have worked on.  Posting the code from the other topic went along with releasing updated versions of BAM Resizer and BAM Workshop.

I am hitting an error while trying to convert one of the .bmp files.

Any clues?

Oh, heya Salk... sorry, haven't had time to check in here that often anymore. If you send me your BMP and describe what you're trying to do, I'll try to look into it (also PM me to be sure I see it). Assuming you haven't dealt with it already by now.

Thanks for the offer.


Things were fixed using DLCTEP for the BMP modifications... Apparently there are problems with GIMP screwing the palette and resulting in issues when reconverting back into BAM. I am not even sure how she did but my wife took care of it... :)

A DiB - device independant bitmap - in a Unix system (where GIMP originated) doesn't have the same encoding as a device independant bitmap in Windows. As Unix came first... I'm not one for taking potshots at Microsoft but this problem gives me stick at work too.

An overflow of the transparent pixel count may cause the mod to terminate with the error Salk posted a while ago in this post when converting BMPs into (item or spell) BAMs. It happens when too many consecutive pixels are marked as transparent.

To fix it replace the original setup-bambatch.tp2 by the following file: Attached File  setup-bambatch.tp2   34.44K   48 downloads

What program did you last use to save your new BMPs?  If you upload a .ZIP with the two BMPs originally spit out by BAM Batcher plus your two new recolored ones, I'll take a look.

Here are the files.

I took a look at the files you saved from GIMP.  Ideally, you should use BMP Version 3 (Microsoft Windows 3.x) instead of BMP Version 4 (Microsoft Windows 95) Version 4.x, and with the full 256 palette entries (instead of a truncated palette).  (Decent description of BMP File Formats.)  With that being said, the code changes for BAM Batcher shouldn't be that bad (not that I have actually looked into that side of things yet).  Basically, the OffsetToPalette needs to be (Size+14) not a static value, and the length of the palette needs to be (ColorsUsed=0?1024:ColorsUsed*4) then pad any missing values.

"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!"

Hello Sam!

 

Thanks a lot!

It did work although I am not sure I understand how it does since you said you only tweaked the Description BAM section while my problem was with the BMP to Inventory BAM operation? :)

 

Thank you also for the advice about the BMP format. I did want to use the full palette but GIMP automatically forced a truncated palette when I changed mode from RGB to Indexed.
