Just started playing in 1366x768 resolution

How to I make my own backgrounds in this resolution from Bitmap to rgn?

is there a tool I can download?


BTW - If someone can show me how this is done, i am MORE than happy to do as many English Competitions/Clubs backgrounds as possible!!

You can use this tool to convert a BMP to RGN:
http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn.exe (http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn.exe)

Name the RGN files as: bkg1366x768.rgn (for menubars: m768.mbr and g768.mbr). Put them in the "data" folder.

Enjoy game. :ok:

Ive got all of it together but the RGN converter wont convert as a batch, it takes ages to do all 1200+ BMP files... is there any converter's that do it as a batch??? Long shot??

It should work in batch mode. Just select all the files you want to convert (someone said it crashed if selecting very many files, never tried -- if so, do it in 24 chunks of 50 files or so).

I tried selecting many files but it simply didn't let me select more than one file at a time... but i'll try again..

And also, thanks for all the hard work mate... love the patches... when and if i manage to pull this off I'll upload them along with pic.cfg file to this site... i find it hard to believe no one has done this yet and shared it??? except for that one with the portugese players etc...


Yup tried it again, wont let me do that..... have you got a different rgn converter to me?

Yes, there is a new version. Somehow everyone here are using the old v1.0, when the v1.1 (which supports batch mode) was released just a few days after the first one.

However, seems like my web server is down -- and I cannot add it to downloads here for permission reasons.

Just download the things that Tapani linked on here and its all pretty self explanitory and simple... let me know if you're still struggling though

Steps:

1 - Find the image you're looking for on Google Images, if you don't already have it that is

2 - Download - http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn.exe and also http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn-1.1.exe

The first one will convert ONLY one Image at a time ( Which is Important as you'll come to find )
The second ONLY converts images in batches(More than one) - VERY IMPORTANT and time saving



3 - Right Click you're chosen Image you wish to convert and select edit (This should automatically open the image up in paint) Change the resolution to whatever screensize you're currently using i.e 800x600, 1280x800 etc..... and save in .BMP format
NOTE: Maybe you already know these steps so i'll skip slightly


4 - Open either of the convert2rgn programs, depending on wether you're doing a single image or several (It will only convert a maybe 10-15 at a time tho I've come to find)

MAKE SURE YOU RUN THESE PROGRAMS AS ADMINISTRATOR!


This is what I do -

Right Click on which ever of the Convert2rgn programs is best suited to doing what is you want to do and run it as administrator.
For this example I will show you how to use the http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn-1.1.exe
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/tshK6DzXhylqjeYOEmGQiGvKCujLhNBOLIu8F7E7mhBUKmXpIB xCvvCSnRd1PkpLlEUx1EWt_8c=w1218-h439
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Pa1iLGYupSJSLTM1bf_QRXyTitiWm9EoEluBVJkGKUX2LlMY-e1SRgtOPqCFyTMGVBkkIfR6u4E=w1218-h439


Now I dont know if this is what you're meant to do or not but I do it and it converts just fine
UNTICK the Box thats says "Green Level Compression" and in the arrow box select "None"
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/E4Le0zZGB5STRj3nvjap-UQ0kIAB_RYFDxItZr17xpaQyFy_JXmu2tVC3oJj-d03wox-cXwHsc4=w1218-h439
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/9vTyLSIMo7m3rlos4C8ASNKQpAos_Cob2VRkXnoV2yaVJrAJDH EC2cY90azaj_Ok6FB88fpVkf4=w1218-h439




Then Press "Browse"
Because I've chosen the one that does Batches rather than single files, I can select all of these.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/nCD3B_nyZTjf7ggBnmaApSkwmQ0nGEaUD8KBQ_A5Vt9ZhZt_p_ _0cVf_stE8iW3WyhxS0IcB8aA=w1218-h439
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_S_a1ZcWM-Ezkk-NwHqD9zdNC3mlH1f_Oa_k_i4tXttYdK-nFN1VvWzC9vz6WfSOpTmU9B5j9sM=w1218-h439


Now for some reason, it actually never converts which ever file is at the top of the list, Don't ask me why, I have no idea but it WILL convert the rest, I assure

Which is why it was important to download the http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn.exe

Because if you have the same issue as me, you can use THIS program to convert the forgotten file.


The differnce between the two http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn-1.1.exe will autimatically convert each one to rgn files with no need for re-naming each file
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/NnWtulO30iygrwnFlZzjyiOobfIQr_LfmPOugqRsMYtCD2Uq79 SxOkBobDVTgxvOrivD6gYcv84=w1218-h439

Whereas the http://tapani.homeftp.org/cm/convert2rgn.exe WONT! you will have to re-name (i.e. "AfricaCup" the file and YOU WILL have to type ".rgn" at the end of the "file name" too (VERY IMPORTANT) i.e "AfrocaCup.rgn"


But as you can see, they will be all ready to copy and paste into you CM0102 Picture folder
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/2Ss_M_jNDBYmHiFjH6kcRQw6P6408oWE1pMJf98c5Ql0ElQ52I ggJMM4AIBq7fQ7NHGGjTgGQ5s=w1218-h439
DONE! Hope that is easy enough to follow
