neoconv with GUI... Just a try
« on: July 12, 2005, 09:18:26 pm »
Ok... wel, here is atheread for this, maybe you're wondering for what?
I'm trying to code a GUI for this usefull tool that IQ made, I have some time so i decided to read my winapi manual and create that, I only have 2 problems I hope someone can help me XD
1.- Everytime i start out the GUI, teh msdos (command) window also appears... anyone knows hoy to avoid that?
2.- How can i link an exe file from this files?
main.cpp, decv.cpp resource.rc, main.h
I cannot make the rc file to be "included" in the build the cpp and h files compile with no problems, I tried using windres, but i don't know how to make the output file usefull to be included in the build and used (such as cpp files) maybe a makefile can help me... I tryied to rip out some options from fba makefile... but it looks complicated XD... has too many lines with several options
I'll thank all your help :D
See ya!!!!! :biggrin:
P.D. Some pics of what i have... is nt too much since i'm making this from 0 but...

Great idea :), but why not just put the source for encryption/decryption into your tool instead of using my external .exe?

Well... As far as I can go I have about 40% of the GUI, it can open files (but not load) handles a dialog for the v roms (and maybe it can handle more dialogs for other rom types) makes a dialog at the beggining of the app (a wellcome message using dialogBox instead of message box) and it can open TXT files and an about dialog...
Now I'm looking for a complete manual for WinAPI, I have doubts about some macros and functions in winapi, but the manuals i've serched for doesn't have complete documentation or references.
Anyone knows where I can get a complete WinAPI manual with references and explanations for the whole functions and macros/structures in WinAPI? (including the complete handling of shellapi.h functions)
Thanks in advance
See ya!!!! :biggrin:

Ok some News... just to let you know that this is not dead XD

WIP: 3
---------

The Samples module now works, it encrypts and decrypts the roms, the progress bar has some issues (it doesnt' tell you if the process and or not XD) but the main stuff works, fixing that the next module will be the C-ROMs one.
See ya!!!!! :biggrin:

A module to encrypt/decrypt S roms with all the protections known untill now, will be wellcome too.

And with a preview module would be awesome  :rolleyes:
