Digitising software to convert bmp files into bbc graphics image

Post by fuzzel » Wed Oct 14, 2020 9:34 am

Hi, I'd like to take a shortcut when creating a loading screen for my next game. Is there a piece of windows software which can take a bmp or jpeg image and convert it into a BBC graphics file i.e. one that I can load directly into a graphics mode eg from &3000 to &8000 in modes 1 or 2?

BBC Micro Image Converter:

I find it helps if you crop and resize the image to 640x512 before you load it into BBC Micro Image Converter.

That's great thanks, I had a feeling there'd be something out there that would fit the bill. To do the cropping I just need to fix my Windows 10 Photos app which for some reason won't work today.
