sarconv - program to convert SAR archive


sarconv [-j] [-q quality] {src_width} {dst_width} {src_archive_file} {dst_archive_file}


This manual page documents briefly the sarconv command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

sarconv is a program that converts the SAR archive file of the visual novel games engine ONScripter into different width or quality. It is useful to adjust the size of the archive file. And it is also useful to adjust the width of the game for playing on some hand-held game platform like PSP or iPod.

The src_width should be 640 or 800. And the dst_width can be 176, 220, 320, 360, 384, 640, and etc.


A summary of options is included below.


BMP files are converted to JPEG files while keeping the filenames unchanged.

-q quality

Adjust JPEG quality, from 0 to 100.
