GroovyBee Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 This is a utility I created at the weekend :- http://www.jagware.org/index.php?showtopic=1027 It is a Windows GUI tool that will convert 24BPP Windows *.bmp file directly into a Jaguar ROM image that can be viewed in 16BPP on real hardware. Just press the "Browse..." button and choose an image and then use the "Convert" button to process it. A new file will be created that has a *.rom file extension. The ROM image is padded to the nearest 1MB so it can be used in emulators like VJ without conversion. Some notes :- Images must be 24BPP, 8BPP images are not supported at this time. Images larger than 320 c 200 (w x h) will be cropped to 320 x 200. Images smaller than 320 x 200 will be displayed in the centre of the screen. The utility is ideal for pixel artists who want to create in-game assets without needing a programmer to implement the features they need or to check out how screenshots or mock-ups would look. The application has been tested on XP fine and the ROMs on a PAL jaguar. (many thanks fto sh3-rg for testing) Load and execute the final ROM at 0x802000. Any problems let me know. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
