Convers+ IMG Hacker v1.4.0
### Added
- Saving a Converted Image as BIN now asks for type of flash where it will be used and also at which offset will be written to - like when you save the Converted Image as VBF. This is to help adding new images in BIN format easier.
- Images that are found and have their data modified in order to redirect to other image are now shown in the table with a "(R)" from Replaced. CH will show the new image. If you want to see the original image in CH you have to edit the VBF / BIN file and redo the original image frame (Start of Image Frame and Start of Image Data).
### Improvement
- Finding and showing images that are present in VBF / BIN files. Now it finds also images encoded with a LUT table less than 256 colors.
- Again, a lot of code rework. Now it should show that there is a problem in decoding the image instead of crashing.

I got used to the Wide format version.. so in the near future I might drop off the old "more square" format version. :roll:
For now they are both included.

Yes, and others. Those 3 are from the Diagnostic Menu of Convers+. They have their own LUT table (BGR Theme).

great job DGAlexandru


would you be able to make an automatic exchange for the selected image?

so that a free space would be automatically found in the FLASH file where the image would be written

then the reference to the new one would change in the flood image and it would then be possible to save the whole FLASH file as BIN

I don't like this approach - to replace an image by modifying the old one to point to the new one.
Instead I recommend to add the new image in the flash you want (Main or Extended) and then going in Main Flash and changing the Offset4Main for the old image with the O4M for the new image. This way you keep the original way of showing an image, have full compatibility with CH, can go back with only search and replace (Offsets4Main).

There will be the option to add new images to a file that allready contains data and then be able to save the entire file or only what is needed to be flashed and also an automatically search and replace for Offset4Main in Main Flash file with the same saving option - full or only what is needed to be flashed back.
For now in CH we only have this automatically search.

From beginning I thought of modifying Main Flash by changing all the Offsets4Main it has for an Extended Flash file version in order to use other file version of Extended Flash.
All the images we now have in Main Flash for Parking Mode for example should be loaded from External Flash; the same for FaceLift icons that are present in PreFl modded version. This is how the Convers+ for Asia market works - all this images are stored in Extended Flash. M0t ral did a good job showing us that we can play with Convers+ to make it better but his way of doing it is very ... unprofessional.

ConversHacker is for Mondeo 4 platform, not for Mondeo 5... it is of no use to you.
