NAMEGRFCodec - A tool to convert a GRF file into graphics files and meta data, and vice versa.
SYNOPSISgrfcodec [-sv ] [-d | e ] [options] GRF-file [Directory]
<GRF-File> denotes the .GRF file you want to work on, e.g. TRG1.GRF
- Display the help message.
- Encode a GRF file. The GRF-file to pass is the file where to encode to. The source of the GRF-file, i.e. the .nfo, will be looked for in sprites/GRF-file.nfo All PCX files will be searched for relative from the location of the GRF-file.
- Decode a GRF file. The GRF-file to pass is the file to decode. The result will be in sprites/GRF-file.nfo and sprites/GRF-file.pcx
- Silences the progress output in interactive mode
- Display the version.
Options for decoding:
- -w num
- Write PCX files with the given width (default 800, minimum 16)
- -h num
- Split PCX files when they reach this height (default no limit, minimum 16)
- -b num
- Organize sprites in boxes of this size (default 16)
- -p pal
- Use this palette instead of the default. See -p ? for a list.
- Disable decoding of plain text characters as strings.
- Disable production of unquoted escape sequences.
Disable production of both quoted and unquoted escape sequences.
This has the side effect of producing a version 6 .nfo, instead of a version 7 .nfo.
- List sprite numbers in the PCX file in hex.
Options for encoding:
- Crop extraneous transparent blue from real sprites
- Save uncompressed data (probably not a good idea)
- Suppress warning messages
Options for both encoding and decoding:
- -m num
- Apply colour translation to all sprites except character-glyphs.
- -M num
Apply colour translation to all sprites.
If both of these are specified, only the last is obeyed. -m ? or -M ? for a list of colour translations.
