I've created a small tool which will take a splash screen NB file created using madkat's NB image converter and convert it to the new splash screen format used in HTC Devices such as Kaiser or Titan. It just adds padding with zeros and the string "This is HTC splash signature" at the end.

Enjoy ;)

Image Converter not working.

Hello all.

It's been a while since I've been back here at XDA Dev. Was around when I had my Universal and hacked it to kingdom come. Now I have a HTC TyTN II. Had it for awhile. I've tried Dutty's ROMs and they are amazing. My problem is that I tried to create my splash images that I used to use on my Universal. However, the image convertor in the first post keeps giving me an error when I try to run it? I've attached the error. Was wondering if anyone could help. Also, is it possible to create the splash image from the Universal? However that one used to have a a 640x480 dimension. Let me know. Thanks.

I use to mess with alot of .ocx files when making misc yahoo tools long long ago. My thought would be to download a new copy of comdlg32.ocx and re-register it. I'm sure if you do a search on google you'll find them all over yahoo booter sites and such. All their prog's are dependent on various ocx files.

Thanks. I actually got it working! :p ... Found it on google. Added the OCX libraries on my machine. Thanks again. Much appreciated.

For future reference:

Place the file in %SYSTEMROOT%\system32

e.g.: C:\Windows\system32

Hi just tried the converter but it's corrupted. I get the error message:

Component 'comdlg32.ocx' or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered. A file is missing or invalid.

I tried downloading it again but keep getting the same result.


*EDIT: Found the solution in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=334907&page=4 Post#37

This cabinet file contains the missing files which need to be put in the same folder as the nb converter.exe http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb6/comdlg32.cab
