8xi files 779 bytes?
« on: August 21, 2006, 06:17:00 am »
Hmm while playing some people games over here I,ve noticed some people had picture files that were 779 bytes on calc. However normally a pic file is 767 bytes. Any clue why they are different size? Just wondering

 It might, testing might prove it? I am not sure how he has it store pictures, as if it is all hacked pictures or not.

You can make the 779 picture into a 767 picture by recalling the pic then storing it to the same picture file. It usually makes the picture 779 if you send it from TI-Connect cause it happens to me all the time.
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.

Um, Kevin, 767+12 = 779. xLIB includes the bottom row, remember? The bottom row is 12 bytes.

Haha, I failed to mention that a picture is 767 bytes for 96x64, and that it also requires identifier bytes. The reason that normal pics are 767 is because they have 12 bytes of identifier bytes (name, etc.) and not the last 12 bytes of the picture.

Also, if you named the pic in the file, then it will also take on more bytes... ;)wink.gif

 WHAT???? IT DOES??? *DROOLS* I was sure this row couldnt even be used, even with asm. I wish the xlib storepic function didnt screwed up the Y= menu if called right after using the map functions :(sad.gif
