vbb crashes on image conversion

Hello everyone.


I am attending a retro gaming show in december and since i'll be in the 2600 booth, i thought i'd make a cool looking logo as a rom for the show.


I have NEVER programmed anything in any language but i managed to understand a few things from RandomTerrain site and a couple videos.


I am trying to convert an image to bb code using the graphics converter, but every time i press "View Code" vbb crashes.


is there something i should do different? I managed to make a crappy logo using the playfield but it looks horrible.


Is there some ready kernel or vbb option so i can use to make that happen (maybe even add a little tune also)?


Is that doable using only vbb?

Try turning on Auto Resize or resizing and simplifying the image in another program before loading it in.

 

I just tried an image as-is and the program crashed, but after turning on auto-resize, there was no crash and code was created. Looks like you have to treat it in a similar way to the Title Screen Kernel Editor where you have to shrink down and simplify your images before using them.

that is exactly what i had in mind. a titlescreen with a tune. what would be an optimal resolution for such purpose?

 

EDIT: i'm sorry, where is the auto-resize option in title screen editor?

The graphics converter has Auto Resize.

The Title Screen Kernel Editor is a different tool. Click on that link to see a list of helpful links that includes one to the official PDF instructions.
