Project One: Issues with saving - yet again

Hi everyone,

having done some gfx conversions recently with P1 I got into trouble saving the data in P1's native format. The export function seems to work, though (so I have BMP-files at least for further steps).

I'm running version 0.6 on Win7. I also found some (mostly older) threads here but they didn't lead me into the right direction (up to now at least;)).

So, may I ask
i) what's the latest build and where can I dl it?
ii) Do I have to install other tools (vb??) beforehand? If this is really necessary: any chance for a complete bundle??
iii) Does the Custom Save function work? Have tried to save a picture as IFLI but the data for the second frame seemed to consit of $00-bytes only...

I'd be more than happy to get some hints.

whats happening exactly ? any output produced ? v0.6 is latest. if p1 starts up anything thats need is probably installed already.

iii) dont know guess nobody tried to use it so far

if you dont do anything fancy just try to use the built in ifli saver ( if any?? dont remember)

Capyfault, please explain more what's your target.
Maybe best workaround for you is to convert your sources in P1, export as BMP and then use ConGo V5 to convert it to destination format. Congo saves IFLI as prg also.
After 13 years Congo still working great on Win10 x64 ;)
There's also forgotten GoDot.

- P1 starts up with two warnings ("invalid ResoDiv value in ProjectOne.ini using 2 instead" and "invalid FliMul value in ProjectOne.ini using 8 instead"), but after clicking OK I can basically run the tool. Now upon saving in P1 format I get "Error Number 75... Path/File acces Error" (Ignore gives "Error 52... Bad Filename or Number")
- could not find any built-in ifli-saver so far... is there any??

@Isildur: just some gfx mode experiments I usually tend to spend my spare time on. For one specific mode the IFLI memory layout is already what I need, and as I got somewhat used to the P1 convertor for this kind of experiments I thought I ask here. In addition I found a P1 saving tool by kmeg that was released some time ago which gave me even more motivation to stick to P1.

But I'll take a closer look at the other tools (ConGO, GoDot).

Thanks for the hints everyone!

ignore first two error messages (its a bug that they show up)

try to load (and/or) save in some other format (koala) before custom. p1 uses a variable to remember last path used it my be not set up correctly. this variable is also in the editable ProjectOne.ini as "lastsavepath". you can set it to a known existing dir, maybe it helps.

I looked into the src and custom save uses the same filename getting functions as other IO routines so it should work. the error message is about a bad path.
