This is my favorite watchface for the T-rex. If someone could convert it for the Stratos 3 it would be great. The name of the creator is "hemenendex"

Can anyone modify the script so that it does not require the physical connection of the watch during the conversion?
It doesn't work for me. I assigned the MODELO variable A1929 for Stratos 3 but the script kept throwing me errors.
Anyone tried to bypass connecting the watch?

The watch is need because the conversion binary only works in the watch and in its system (MIPS), it can't be executed in a different environment like Windows or Linux, unless someone ports that binary or finds a way to run it on other environments.
You can post in this thread what your issues are in order to fix them.

    GTR/VL BIN Watchfaces converter for Stratos 3 & Verge
    This is a Windows tool which will make most (hopefully) of GTR47/GTR42/VL (VergeLite)* BIN watchfaces compatible with Stratos 3 and Verge converting BIN files into WFZ files
    You can convert more than one BIN each time
    Use this tool just for personal usage otherwise you will have to ask for permission to watchfaces devs

    * The few VL BINs I have tested could be converted but they freeze in screen lock/SLPT mode

    Requirements

    • Windows OS (Tested on Widows 10 x64)
    • Stratos 3 or Verge watch
    • ADB drivers
    • Phone running on Android
    • If Weather doesn't work, AmazMod and Openweather API Key for weather data in Stratos 3

      Some watchfaces may not work if this is not correctly set

    Supported firmwares/ROMs
    Those firmwares which have WearStore watchface support

    • Stratos 3:
    A1929 running latest US firmware
    A1928 running latest CN firmware
    • Verge:
    A1801 running latest CN firmware
    A1811 running latest US 3.2.7.5 firmware is now supported. Check Post #2

    Tool Scripts
    • Launcher.bat = Run this to launch the tool
    • Clean.bat = This will delete ALL files and folders of the tool. So be aware of this as you will lose ALL your WFZs

    How to use the tool
    1. Download the tool
    2. Unzip it
    3. Connect your watch to PC
    4. Run Launcher.bat
    5. Put all BIN watchfaces you want to convert in wfs folder. Avoid long text names (Option 5)
    6. Choose the number depending on converter version you want to use to convert the watchfaces (Option 1-4 for Verge / Option 1-2 for Stratos 3)
    7. Converted WFZs will be copied to conv folder and pushed to watch when conversion process is done with "-S3" or "-Verge" and "v0.4x" corresponding to used converter version string in WFZ name
    8. Disconnect your watch from PC
    9. Exit the Launcher (Option 0)
    10. Select the new WFZs from your watch or Amazfit app
    Tips
    • Run v0.4a converter as a start, if some data is not correctly aligned, convert those watchfaces with another converter version with no alignment fix feature and see if that one works better.
      Verge users, if you have issues with converted black color digits/time hands in AOD, just use another converter version with no black digits fix.
    • Some converted WFZs may not contain any preview pic
    • Note that the tool will convert all the BINs in wfs folder each time you run conversion script
    • Conversion time will be different depending on the BIN amount and type (GTR42 BINs don't need rescaling neither GTR47 for Verge) to be converted, your CPU and your HDD speed
    • Before converting the WFZs I recommend you to set up AmazMod and Openweather data in Stratos 3
    • Some features supported on GTR/VL may not be supported on Stratos 3/Verge like arch overlay and others, and you may face some glitches or not correctly scaled data
