Changes in v1.15/v1.15b:

  • Fixed a bug in the decompression and GIM conversion routine

  • You can now use ICO, PNG and GIF files as inputs, in addition to 4 bit BMPs
  • Other minor changes and bug fixes
  • Added option to disable compressing resources - this is for some 3.7x RCOs not working properly with compression enabled

    338w ago - Amid a global spectrum of high definition format battles, none is so misunderstood as the debate between HDMI and component video. Some videophiles expect HDMI to completely outpace the "vintage" analog format, while true experts in the field know there are distinct advantages and disadvantages to each format.

    This article will give you a better idea of the technologies that make up these video formats, and prove that the differences are not as lopsided as you may think.

    If you talk to any half-witted video enthusiast or ask an associate at your local big box retailer - bearing in mind that the two groups are pretty much the same - they'll unmistakably tell you that HDMI is better than component, case closed, end of story. This is just based on tired assumptions of the entire audio/visual industry. HDMI is based on a digital technology while component is analog, HDMI is a more recent development and HDMI costs more. Conventional wisdom says that newer formats are better, digital is always the best and a higher price tag equals higher quality.

    Living under the guise of these kinds of stereotypes will eventually tear your brain to shreds. They're just not true. Component video cables can deliver really high quality pictures, just like HDMI. They also tend to be a bit more robust, especially if...

    Sony's 40GB PS3 arrives in retail store stockrooms

    338w ago - Absolutely no surprises here folks, but we've managed to attain a few photos of the box of the new 40GB PlayStation 3 due to officially launch on November 2nd.
