This thread was missing (broken link from Louthrax page), so I created it for people to report bugs and chat about the MIF package. Smile

I have one 1st question: Is there any documentation available for the MIF format? And what about the newer MIG file format?

Tip:
When using MIF.exe in automated script compiling or assembling,
at first glance, using the win32 command line seems to ignore everything.
The GUI can generate the correct format. Settings screen at the bottom.
Something like:
mif gfx.png -df0 -ct2 -fm0 -pt1 -df3 -rf3 -sm2 -y2r0 -of"fart.sc2"

It looks like all parameters are needed in specific way.

Mif seems to ignore the name table in screen 2 when viewing excising pictures, not generated with mif. It fills the name tables with 3 x 0 to 255 values i guess.

Hello Louthrax

I have just a request.
Would it be possible to adapt your MIF tool to run on MacOS?

Hi Eric,
I heard it should work with Wine (both command line and UI version). A port of the command line version should be easy to do (it’s just very generic C code).

It would be great to have a MacOS version of the command line tool.
I’m sure there are other Mac users around who will be interested too.

If you do not have time, or MAC computer, I can try to make the port for you.
Let me know.

Ps Can you consider to share the source code ?

@Louthrax
Yep, it works fine on macOS under this flavour of wine. But, sadly, macOS Catalina dropped support for 32bit binaries. So only those like me that hold the upgrade will be able to run it.

BTW, have you seen my 2nd post on this thread? Could you please share any docs on the MIF and MIG file formats? Piotr asked for it, to add support on RECOIL.

@ericb59
Since MIFui is able to be run under wine, maybe it will be possible compile the GUI version using winelib?
