@Leir:

* I could technically implement another pass that checks & convert/resize the files on the go (instead of just dumping them in the discarded folder) since that's essentially what part of the cover mode is doing, but with a full directory of screensavers, it would take a tremendous amount of time (minutes, probably) for a job that's ultimately better suited to the user on their shiny and powerful computer .

* Nope, one .bin at a time. (And, yep, python first is the way to go ).

* Yep, copying one of the other files there is a good way to do that on Windows.


Speaking of the cover mode, I'd like some feedback on how people think the covers look in the screensaver. I went the same way as the reader (meaning full screen, high quality scaling algorithm, aspect ratio intact, on a white background), but I had to play around with the gamma (after converting the files to grayscale to keep the filesizes down). So if you feel like the covers are too dark/light, I'd like to hear about it .
