No idea if this has been done before, but here goes, the title says it all.
All you have to do is extract that in the Screens folder (note NOT the Soldat.exe folder, put it where the actual screens are). When you have done that, run it and it does the conversion, and deletes the converted BMPs.
...That's a really good idea.
Yeah, i remember that thing too.
I just coded it today. :x
There are other bmp to png command line tools, but most of them can be used only to convert one file at time, so that's why I made this.
Yeah, like I said I had no idea if a tool like this already existed, thus I coded one fast, it's not like it was hard anyway. :P
b00stA: I think you created your batch file before I made the FAps list so when I made the list, yours didn't get added. Sorry :(
It now finds out the last endgameX.png and then starts converting to names after that.
This update makes a good reason why to use this tool over the another. :P
Here's an example output:

HOWEVER, because how I had to do this tool now, you can no longer use it to convert other BMPs in other dirs to PNGs, because it checks for the name now. This is Soldat-only tool now.
And thanks for the comment guys, I appreciate it. :)
is it possible to code it so it transforms all bmps in one folder into pngs regardless of the name?
ownage idea, btw.

That's what the first version did, but the problem with that was that the new BMPs Soldat generates were overwriting the already converted ones.
I'll try to find the original one from somewhere, or recode it for you. It might take a little while though, because I'm leaving for a week today.
Nice job...I still like Giffy though
it doesnt work for screens that you take with F4 :( cause they'e not named endgame#. pls fix this.
Thanks for the notice.
I have fixed it now, and screenshot BMPs are converted to PNGs too.
You can download the new version from the same URL.
And as for SPARTAN_III, I will do the all BMP files to PNG converter later today or tomorrow.
How do you make that stuff?
By using Microsoft Visual C++ compiler to compile some C++ code. :D
what is a png file? is it one that can be played with some kind of player?
png is portable network graphics, an image format with nice quality, better than jpg imho
