I just found a new issue.
I am trying out using legacy fonts with a FT81x.
And I thought it would be a good idea to place my font in the last 100k of RAM_G.
However, the field "Address Of Font Data" only allows for 5 digits, so 99999 is the highest address.
That is a tad bit away from the 921600 I would like to use. :-)

Hello,

Thank you for reporting this.
I will inform the development team so they can update EAB for the next release.

The BIN2C tool in EAB v2.2.0 has a small bug.
When you set the format to "decimal" it outputs the last line as hex.

And while posting, any news on the update?

Hello,

Thank you for the details.

Yes, actually EAB 2.3 was supposed to have been released, however we found an issue in the ASTC convertor and we are rolling all of these updates into EAB 2.4 which I expect to released in the second week of September..

EAB 2.4.0 is released and it looks really good. :-)

The font size is still "limited" to 255, although I have to admit that this is only a limit in rare cases.  ;)

The BIN2C converter has a new "glitch", there is no linefeed after the last number.
The last line ends on a "}", before it ended on a ",".
And thechnically the next line should be "};".

Apart from that the array still does not have a size so I still need to get that from the binary.
And I would like to have an option to build the arrays with leading zeroes, pleeaase. :-)


On a sidenote, I just renamed C:\Users\Public\Documents\EVE Asset Builder\tools\SampleApp since I really do not need it to be copied everytime to the target location when converting something.


And what is "DECODE"?

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback.

I have had it confirmed that the font size limitation is due to the font converter itself, and this cannot be altered.

I will pass your feedback onto the development team, a new version of EAB is due out shortly so hopefully we can rectify these issue before release. They are asking for an example of the leading zeros you wish to insert in the array?

As for the Decode tab, this is intended to take raw hex commands issued to EVE and decode these into human readable display list entries.

Yes, I noticed today at work that it is gone again and reset to 2.1.0RC2.
I am not asking why but so far I could not tell.

I tried this with touch_cap_811.bin from AN_336 and it just sits there doing nothing.
At least on the EVE command level that file is not this complicated.
I also tried reducing it to the first few commands, same result.

Please provide a small example file that actually gets decoded to demonstrate what this does.

Thank you for the feedback, could you try an uninstallation and then a fresh installation EAB 2.4.1?

Could you clarify if there is an ERROR output after the "Conversion failed!" output?

An example for reference:
Code: [Select]
C:/Users/Public/Documents/EVE Asset Builder/Assets For Test/Image Converter Test/jpg/320_480.jpg conversion is in progress...
Conversion failed!
ERROR: Codec context alloc failed: ASTCENC_ERR_BAD_CPU_ISA

Ok. Now it works.

 I installed it in c:\program files\EVE Asset Builder\ and it did't work.

Another question:
I tried to install it on a MacBook Air (chip M1 ARM) with Parallel Desktop 17.1.0 (last version) with Windows 11 ARM64. I cannot  install it and i get this message:

Quote
This program can only be installed on versions of Windows designed for the following processor architectures: x64

Is there a particular reason?

Other software 64bit works well included EAB v2.1.0 (only flash programmer did't work because no ft422 drivers for win 10/11 ARM).

Hello Moiatto,

Thank you for giving that a try.

I believe the latest version of EAB is only compatible x64 architecture as per the warning message and as such it will not run on ARM based processors such as the one in your macbook Air.

I will clarify this with the development team and also note the ASTC error you are seeing to see if there is a resolution for this.

Currently the latest version of EAB available on our website is version 2.4.1:
