And who's Minori? And why sue the makers of ExtractData?
dunno where to find them sorry...

and if you're asking why Minori sued extract data, refer here http://forums.novelnews.net/showpost...postcount=1167

And does anyone know if the author releases an English version of this, or if anybody has made an English patch for it?

Unregistered Hey, what happened to the site?

And was this the tool where they were trying to get repack support in?

Videogamer555 Can someone write an English help file (can be plain text, doesn't have to be Windows .hlp file), for ExtractData 1.20? I'm in serious need of something that explains what the different buttons various options menus do.

And also on a related note, is there any English help file for HCG Converter? It has some pretty cool looking possibilities from the few English words I can see in the menues (something about an LZ decoding test, and something else about XOR, sounds neat!). But the full titles for these features as well as the captions for the various settings associated with each feature are in Japanese. Please someone provide a bit of assistance here.

Videogamer555 Ok. I finally figured out how Photoshop handles the Alpha channel. Graphics has 2 ways to encode transparent regions (as I've learned now from Photoshop), which at first I thought were equivalent (before I figured it out in Photoshop):
Transparency
Alpha Channel

At these are NOT actually equivalent. And depending on your software, they can be handled in different ways from each other (or ignored completely on cheap software).

In Photoshop the alpha channel it handles as a 4th color channel (in addition to R, G, and B). It does NOT handle it as true transparency. The way it displays it is as a redish overlay on the image (like holding a red color filter over the image). Portions of the image which the alpha channel say should be more transparent, have a deeper red color. Portions which the alpha channel say should be less transparent (more opaque or solid) have a much weaker of a red overlay. This CAN be saved in a BMP file.

Transparency in photoshop IS handled as actual transparency. However the way that photoshop store this "transparency" is NOT able to be saved in BMP files. The way that photoshop handles transparency is ONLY able to be saved in 3 file formats I've seen (PSD photoshop file), PNG, and GIF (only works in "indexed" color mode).

I'm not sure, but both of these might be standard ways of saving transparency, just that photoshop can distinguish between which way it was done. Now the Gimp, that's a different story.

The Gimp shows transparency coded transparent areas of an image in the same way that it shows alpha chanel coded transparent areas (which by the way is the same as the way photoshop handles transparency, but not alpha channel). This way of doing it shows any portion of the image that is supposed to be transparent (regaurdless of how it is coded in the image file) as transparent. What this means is that anything behind the layer containing transparent parts will show through said parts. If nothing is behind these parts then a checkerboard pattern is shown their (again photoshop does this, but ONLY for transparency coded transparency, not alpha channel coded transparency). In the gimp the 2 ways to make an image transparent are COMPLETELY indestinguishable from each other. While good for most cases, this might be bad if you really had a reason to know how the transparency was implemented in the particular image.

So both programs have their advantages, it's just that I had to get used to how Photoshop did this, because I don't often work with images that have transparency. I was sort of out of practice.

The real problem will be getting a graphics conversion software that can convert 32bit BMP files into PNG files, while converting the alpha channel into transparency. ACDSee can convert BMP into PNG, but it chops off the extra 8 bits to make it 24bits per pixel, which kills the alpha channel in the BMP file, so the output PNG file has NO transparency or alpha channel.

The problem is EXACTLY in ExtractData, since I've tried to extract images from "natively" supported Ethornell Buriko General Interpreter-based eroges, like Edelweiss, Da Capo and Tail Tale.

And thank you very much for the prooflink, Moogy. ^_^

Because most of regular software cannot normally handle 32-bit Bitmap files, I've wrote Image Tool of my own, which gladly accept alpha-channeled BMP\TGA\PNG and can easely convert each one into another.

P.S. Your glorious PhotoShop is actually bloated and overpriced piece of crap. Bear with it.

Also, no one on these forums has any connection to the guy making ExtractData.
