Converting/opening ROQ files


Go to solution Solved by mjt,

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to convert JA's ROQ files to a more practical format. I tried using Quake Video Maker, importing the ROQ as a "animation sequence", but while it does import successfully, both the preview and the exported files are slightly glitchy versions of the original format.

Check out the red planet on the left, for example:

Am I missing something? Is there another way to do this?

ffmpeg can convert into .roq format much easier:

with audio:

ffmpeg -i inputfilename.containerextension -ab 256k -ar 22050 -r 30 -s 512x512 outputfilename.roq

without audio:

ffmpeg -i inputfilename.containerextension -r 30 -s 512x512 outputfilename.roq
 

The reverse should work just as fine but might need some different parameters.

I've had a lot of trouble with FFMPEG, as well as trying to find a decent GUI for it. What exactly would the reverse parameters/commands be? The plan is that I want to upscale JA's (and maybe JO's) cutscenes and release it as a mod for the community, but without a proper way to capture those files in a non-ROQ format, I'm a bit stuck.

EDIT: Found a working GUI, FFMPEG did the trick, thanks.
