How to create Broken Sword DXA files

Post by MarkoH01 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:35 pm

Now I know that they are not even necessary anymore but before I realized I tried several hours to convert my German smk file to dxa using scummvm tools and the included batch file convert_dxa.bat. However it did not work correct. Even though I got a dxa file as end result the result is terrible with many artefects even in still frames and missing lines ect. So since I am a curious person I wonder what could I have dome wrong since I only used the included batch file (with changed paths of course). Could somebody tell me this?

Might be a regression in either the DXA playback code or the tools, since, as you already figured out, re-encoded DXA's aren't really needed anymore.
So i guess no one took the time to check for regressions.

This is a guess, i didn't check if it produces said artefacts/glitches on my version
