TIMM v1.4.72 Released
Posted by Eric on 16 May 2001, 04:58 GMT

Frank Schoep and Sherman Cahal have released a sizeable update to TItanium MultiMedia, their popular movie-making program (You may have noticed that it was released a few days ago, except that the zip file was corrupted-it's fixed now). What's new here that deserves yet another mention, you ask? Well, it now supports the TI-89 and TI-92+! It also supports different screen sizes, file sizes, formats, and a whole bunch more. Go check it out, yo.

It sure took him long enough for porting to 68k. I don't understand at ALL why he didn't start it that way. :)

Excuse me, but aren't the 89 progs exe-packed? Also, can't only NOSTUB progs be exe-packed? Therefore, would it make any difference if a kernel is installed or not?

BTW: I make my videos and run them on VTI emulating a HW2 2.05 calc, w/out UniOS, so I don't think that matters.

I also have got the problem, that it only works black and white. I even installed Universal OS, which didnt make a difference.

Problem with TIMM
Dave Havok  Account Info

When I run my video through it, it says it converts okay, and says the file is located at C:\Program Files\TIMM\video.[platform]p, and in my case, the platform is 89. But it never shows up there. What's going on?

Yeah, I have an 89 and the exact same thing happened with me. I was converting an animated GIF. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You MUST have TIGCC installed and have TIGCC.exe in your dos path.

Bingo! Some people do not read messages and stuff that pop up in front of their face ;-). It did not take *me* long to port TIMM to 68K, but Dave spent some time on it, while I was working on greyscale and more features. So we three (Dave, Sherman and I) are happy to present you TIMM 1.4.72.

I'll have to try this program soon, when I find some time. For now, however, note that the TIGCC path can be read from the Windows registry, key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\TIGCC Team\TIGCC", value "Program Folder". I hope this information enables you to find tigcc.exe regardless of the path setting.

Well, actually, I do have TIGCC installed, as I use it quite a bit, and I do have tigcc.exe in my DOS path. I DID see that message. I'm not blind. Is there any specific directory that TIGCC has to be in?

TIGCC will be detected once it is installed properly. I did not put TIGCC in *my* DOS path, but it still works OK. I guess that TIGCC must be installed and then it will always be detected. You can see if it is detected by looking at the small DOS box in the taskbar: if, after conversion, it says 'TIGCC' or 'cc1' or any other TIGCC related program, it's fine.

Re: TIMM v1.4.72 Released - Can't get it to work!
jaimegmr  Account Info

I installed the new version of TIMM but now that the program reaches Step 5 of 6, I get a message box that says "Use timm.exe to start TItanium MultiMedia". After I click OK all the buttons on the TIMM window are disabled except the [Exit] button. I wait and nothing happens. I get bored and I finally press [Exit] and I get no movie in the TIMM folder.

I tried it many times with an AVI and a GIF and it still doesn't work. E-mail me or post a message if you can help. Thanks.

Is it possible that you are running an *ancient* or old version of the Windows Media Player? If you are, please upgrade to at least WMP6 or WMP7.

I have WMP7 and see that message when I set the video start position to more than 60 seconds.

For some reason, certain people are having this type of problem with TIMM (I had the very same problem). The reason of this is because the file 'vconvert.exe' is Windows-bases and can't work from a batch file. The batch file generated by the program uses DOS boxes, and vconvert will not work under DOS boxes. In order to fix this, you must first execute TIMM as you normally would, go to step 5 where the program seems to "stop", and do the following:

-- Open the file 'convert.bat' (in the TIMM directory)
that was just generated when you reached step 5 of
6 with Windows notepad.

-- Highlight and copy all of line 3 from the batch
file. (The line of text including the text
'vconvert' followed by some weird characters.

-- Press Start/Run from the Windows Start Menu.
(Remember, TIMM is still running on Step 5).

-- Press Ctrl+V to paste the line of text that you
copied from 'convert.bat' into the 'Open:' textbox.

-- After you copy the line of text in the textbox,
press 'Home' on your keyboard to go to the beginning
of the line that you just pasted into the Run

-- Type the path that you installed TIMM into right
where the cursor is.

Here is an example of the line that should be there:
(Assumming that C:\TIMM was where you installed TIMM.)

c:\timm\vconvert C:\Games\Descent2\KillBot.AVI 83+ 8 0 125 1 F 00 0 0 8

('C:\Games\Descent2\KillBot.AVI' will be replaced with the path that your video that you are converting. -- This was a previous video that I converted.)

-- Press OK to run the program while still keeping TIMM running in Step 5.

If successful, the program will bring up a warning message telling you to minimize all open windows, and then a dialog box asking you for the name of the video.

**Not all videos will convert -- I best recommend you to set it to 'black and white' mode, which works will ALL videos. (You can use a good Imaging program to convert images to 2-bit Monocrome under error-diffusion to get an image that looks relative to the origional.)

Good Luck!

In Windows 95 and 98, I know that you CAN start 32-bit applications from the DOS box. Which version would yours be?

I use Windows 98 Second Edition. The problem posted above does not occur with everyone. Fortunately, my system stopped doing that always, but still does that sometimes. It depends on the computer.
