Default Creating g00 files?

So I've been editing graphics for a vn that has g00 files. I extracted the bmps using Crass with no problem, but can anyone tell me how to get the bmp files back into g00 format?

lovepopp, you can't. Besides the image itself, g00 contains metadata. Unfortunately, crass simply ignores it. You'll have to get RealLive Development Kit from Haeleth, and re-extract files again, now with metadata, in order to be able to import translated images.

I downloaded it and ran vaconv.exe, but I'm not quite sure how to extract the g00 file I want. When I input 'C:\smuma01.g00' it gives me no response, and when I try to input an option it tells me I have no input file selected? Am I doing something wrong?

Sorry for sounding so terribly noobish, I'm not really used to programs without GUIs.

sorry for being late for 2 days. i forgot about it -.-

so here it is

Setting up your files :
1) Place the rldev folder you extracted in a place where it is easily accessible, for example, "C:\" aka your C drive.
2) Next, open up a command prompt window (with administrator if you are using Vista or 7.
3) Tell the command prompt where your rldev folder is by typing "cd C:\rldev\bin"
4) Since the programs cannot find the library by default, you need to type in "set RLDEV=c:\rldev\"

WARNING : if you close the command prompt during any parts of the file conversion, you need to redo the steps again.

Converting FROM ".g00" file :
As a sample, im going to use a .g00 graphic file from Clannad
5) Type "vaconv" into the command prompt and it should give a help list.
6) I'm going to use "PNG" as the format for editing the file (Probably with Photoshop) so i type this command in : "vaconv -f PNG C:\rldev\bin\BG001.g00"
where "vaconv" is the program to execute, "-f PNG" is the format to convert to and "C:\rldev\bin\BG001.g00" is file file you want to convert.
A file titled BG001.PNG will now appear

NOTE : there must be a space for every command
eg "vaconv<space>-f<space>PNG<space>C:\rldev\bin\BG001.g00"

Picture : http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...ymem/Usage.jpg

Converting BACK to ".g00" file :

just type the same command but replace the PNG with .g00 and the .g00 of the file extension with PNG

eg "vaconv -f G00 C:\rldev\bin\BG001.PNG"

WARNING : Delete the original BG001.G00 in the rldev folder as the program would not overwrite the original(someone clarify this thx)
