Back to main topic Smile
Ok, now I have to find avi to eva converter which runs on PC of course. But, then, how can I put the produced huge EVA file to my MSX's hard disk? Shall I install it on PC? and what will happen to the partitions in it?
Thanks

Here you can get the avi2eva converter, and some other usefull tools.

I thought there were 2 EVA-projects for MSX. One is indeed Japanese, but it features only black/white movies? The other one is.....South American? That's the one you'll want. I'll check my utils, but I believe I use Avi2Eva.exe to convert AVI-files into EVA-files. Not this japanese util legacy just pointed to.

I think it's time to improve EVA format! I don't know how, but I think EVA is one of the gratest things of MSX system! And I think that a screen 8 version to play videos at 256 colors could be interesting!

I've heard in this forum that someone wants to extract audio routines to make a stand alone player of digital music on MSX (without video). Do you know something about progress of this?

@scratch_disk: Don't EVER try to copy EVA files to HDD. DOS2 won't appreciate it Smile Just burn them on CD, using ISO9660, mode 1, 8.3 filenames (all restrictions on). A CD contains about 1 hour and a half of 12FPS EVA.

@Latok: It's all the same EVA-project. The black-and-white you saw was probably dus to a PAL HBI-V1 interface (custom built), while the EVA recording tools require a MSX Turbo R with HBI-V1 NTSC digitizer and MEGASCSI.

@legacy: Have you also tried EVAWIN04.EXE? It's the genuine EVA replayer for windows. It sucks big time Wink

Well, you mean because of fragmented disk?

Well, you mean because of fragmented disk?Thank MSX Software Team (and me for initiating that idea in BBS-Waterland) for an MSX defragmenter called Improve then...

lol...

@scratch_disk: ATA-IDE transfer speeds are for 3.58MHz, 7.16MHz and R800 respectively 150kB/s, 290kB/s and 300kB/s. So if you want to copy one hour and a half EVA movie to your HDD (about 650MB), I wish you luck!

Furthermore, the bigger the file to be copied is, the longer it will take (duh), but either the IDE or DOS2 can't handle it anymore. The bigger the file is, the slower it will be copied, eventually.

Just too bad that Improve can't handle FAT16, AFAIK.
