CPCEPsprites RELEASE 0.0
« on: 2014.October.31. 18:25:38 »
I'm writing a tool for converting images to cpc/ep software sprites...
here's a link to cpcwiki forum with the first release...:
http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/applications/cpcepsprites-release-0-0/new/#new

At the moment the enterprise module is not fully functional...
The background screen output works (at least from what I tested) but with the other output types the next line code is problematic as I use set/res 3,x to go to next line every second one and I haven't implemented other method than a lookup table (I should at least add a "add line_width")... so sorry
But I hope that it won't be that much work to change and the generated code should be still somewhat useful...I hope...

It looks very interesting!
My first problem, using laptop only with HD resolution (1366x768), the full program window cannot be displayed :-(

Second problem: how can I draw anything? :oops:

About the window size... I haven't thought about that...sorry. It's my first real programming project and I've been actually just learning how to do things in java and I don't know how to design a proper resizable window...

It's not possible to draw in the program (maybe in the future). At the moment you can only load an image, (eventually resize it... I've cut the dither and palette options for the release as they were too buggy) and convert it to a software sprite or screen data (or just generate an LPT for given screen parameters). I added maxam->pasmo syntax translation but it's not fully implemented, so may need some corrections. Also for ep you will have to change all "next line" code... (sorry, the first release was rushed, so it's not fully functional).
