    Taking screenshots in FU1

    I went to take some screenshots from FU1, but they come up as not valid PCX format in Paint Shop Pro. Currently I'm stuck with Win98 on my computer, so I can't fire up 2K to see if its version of paint handles them.

    hmm... I don't have any screenshots sitting around to check, but try Irfanview. It's small, free, and handles lots of formats, so maybe it will comprehend it.

    Irfanview couldn't read them either. I've uploaded ten random screenshots, in RAR and ZIP format (take your pick). Maybe you can get them to work on your end.

    shots.rar 1.09MB
    shots.zip 1.27MB

    IrfanView complains about the headers, so maybe the data is valid for a pcx file, but the proper headers are not included? In any case I can tell you that The GIMP (v2.2.8) and ImageMagick Display (both of which are free) understand them.

    The GIMP worked. Takes forever to work on this old clunker though. Is there a way of doing batch conversion?

    I'll have to see if the Win95 version of FU1 can output proper files. I've got a massively stripped version of FU95 somewhere, that should be able to use the missing resources from the dos version. But I don't have time to muck around with such things for the next day or two.

    Hmm... it seems likely, but I have no idea how. My GIMP knowledge tends to accumulate on a need-to-know basis.

    If you used ImageMagick OTOH, batch conversion is a doddle, as aside from the ImageMagick Display application it's all command-line tools.

    I'll have to give that one a go. FU95 shots are also unreadable by standard apps.

    Hi,
    Use the paint program that comes with your windows OS. Then you can export to another format.
    Adobe Photoshop 6 works as well, expensive.
    Bye,
