Gimp Fsh Filetype plugin

This is a Filetype plug-in I wrote to allow The Gimp to load and save Fsh Files.



It will load all the images in the fsh file as layers.
The files will be alpha blended unless the file name contains "noblend" then it will disable alpha blending on that file.

When saving a file an options dialog will allow you to set the type of Fsh and if Mipmaps are to be generated for the zoom levels.

To install place all of the files in the folder into the Gimp's plug-ins directory (typically lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins), they all must be in the main plug-ins folder not a subfolder. 

The "Generate Mipmaps" function requires Gimp 2.6.0 or later.

Download: GimpsharpFsh

File version should be 1.2.2.6

I hope it is useful.  ;)

null45, thank you so much for this!  It'll be an absolute lifesaver for me, and I'm sure many others.

This version allows you to select the type of fsh to save in a dialog rather than a command prompt console.
It also allows you to automatically generate the Mipmaps during saving.  :thumbsup:

Quick question: Where would the plugins directory we need to place it in be located? I've found 3, one in my Program Files folder and two in my Documents folder

sithlrd98

This is the one I added it to :C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins . Keep in mind I am using a x64 OS , so it may just be Program Files\Gimp\*

Jayson, my OS is x64 as well, so thank you for clearing that up.

Yes the correct path is lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins Although the Gimp has another plug-ins directory the main one is the easiest to use.  ;)

Did it ever display the dialog to select the type of fsh when saving?

A bug in the error catching system and a bug in the Mipmap saving fixed, file version updated to 1.2.2.0. 

It now should display the errors during loading and saving and the Mipmaps should be saved correctly.

will give it a try....thanks null45!  :thumbsup:

Ah, now it tells me whats wrong, the notorious "non-english character in pathname" problem, I will need to re-install gimp.

Great work here!  &apls

I have an idea: something that could be very useful to texture makers (I'm sure the NAM Team members will appreciate it A LOT) would be a FSH thumbnail extractor. Ie not an application, but instead a plugin that's installed under Windows and allows previewing certain file types (in our case .FSH files) in thumbnail view in the Windows Explorer.

I have to clarify though, that this isn't a "request", neither a "wish" from me, just an idea. You will have to ask more members (esp from NAM) to verify if there's really a need for this.

Updated to use the higher quality Fshwrite compression when writing DXT1 or DXT3 fsh files, a few bugs fixed.
File version updated to 1.2.2.3   ;)

null45

A bug in the fsh type selection and a few other bugs fixed, Fshwrite compression is now a selectable option.

File version updated to 1.2.2.4

null45

Updated to use The Gimp's image resize function when resizing the mipmaps, File version updated to 1.2.2.5.  :thumbsup:

DXT1 images will now load the alpha channel correctly, File version updated to 1.2.2.6.

Is this what you had in mind Fsh file Thumbnails for Windows. I have used this but removed it as it does not seem to be compatable with FSH2PNG MkII it seems to make FSH2PNG MkII crash when converting fsh to png in some cases.

null45

What OS are you using?

Under Windows 7 there is a bug that causes the files to be locked by Windows. :thumbsdown:

Could you upload a sample file that makes FSH2PNG MkII crash?
