Short description

POPRecog - Prince Of Persia Screenshots Recognizer.

This program can recognize bitmaps on screenhots. It can "tell" you what is the frame order in animation, what is the pixel position of bitmap, what is the layer number and if this bitmap is "mirrored" or not. It's mainly for developers, but everybody can use it.

To start using this program you first need some screenshots and graphic to recognize. You can made screenshots them using another tool POPRecord (This program capture and record the animation generated by all the frames when you play Prince of Persia and save them to disk). Using PR you can unpack from dat files some bitmaps to recognize.
