Biturn

General info: Biturn is a program with ability to convert 3D models and bitmaps from one format to another. It cannot handle all known file formats but it can handle a few. Its speciality is that it can convert also few of the formats which are used in the PC games which are not convertable with commonly available convertors. Some of the supported games are: Final Fantasy 7 & 8, Warcraft 3, Oni, Quake 1,2,3,4. Biturn is executable only on Win32 platform (Win95 - WinXP) but it was also running on Linux through Wine windows emulator. It uses 3rd party libraries for reading of some of the formats, currently these are:

  • lib JPEG for JPG bitmap compression
  • libPNG for PNG bitmap compression
  • zlib - needed by libPNG and libJPEG

List of the supported file formats: This list is not complete as the program gets updated from time to time. Many of the fileformats (especially game file formats) are not writable, because it is hard to read the file formats and two times harder to write them.
