Hi all,

 

I dont even have my IIGS out right now, but when I do get it out again, Id like to try and get some modern gifs to run on my IIGS.

I have a floppy emu.

 

Ive seen this, but I dont know how I would go about using it?

If anyone can help, that would be great!

John

From what it looks like, the .do file is a disk image containing the player. To make files for it, you use the hganimate script there. It implies that the files should be in a specific resolution before conversion.

I see the script, but like how do I run it? It says from command prompt, but how would it run...? I've just installed Python and PIL.

I have resized the gif and everything.

Also, how would I download these? I'm not familiar with Git, and usually there's a download button of some sort.

Thank you so much for your help,


John

GitHub lets you download the whole repository as a Zip file, instead of having to clone. On the top-right of the page, the option should be there.

The easiest way you'd do it is to put the GIFs in the same directory as the script, and change the working directory with the cd command to the directory. Run the command like so, but prefixed with Python, as you may be missing the executable bits or running Windows:

'USAGE: hgrdither.py [outputfilename] [inputgif] [brightness (float of order 1.0)] [videosize (normal,small,tiny)]'

I'd imagine it'd look something like "python hgranimate.py whatever whatever.gif 0.5 normal" - adjust as needed?

Nope. It comes up with that text but no indication on how to use it... I typed what you said and it says not a command

Now it's saying frame0.jpeg doesn't exist

I'm trying this on a windows 7 computer. I have windows 10 maybe that's the problem.

Are the files in the current directory? If not, you need to explicitly point to the full path.

I'm opening hgranimate from the oldnasty folder, as the other one didn't have all of the files?

Everything is together. All it says is that it's missing something like _image C which is a PIL error. I don't see how it could have been installed wrong. I've tried it on two computers.
