As promised, here is PictConv, the picture converte I used to generate the pictures in Save The Earth.

There are of course some existing tools to convert standard formats (PNG, etc...) to Atari formats, but most of them have a GUI, which make them very unpractical to use if you are doing the development using makefiles and automated build scripts.

The tool handles Atari and Oric formats, and can be a bit rough on the edges, but heck, if it worked for me, should work for you :D

what d3adlydessert said.

But you should release the source, as you did for Save The Earth, no ?

I'm going to release the source as well, like the rest of the OSDK it will be on my svn repository, but I wanted to iron out some bugs and style issues first - I had to do some hacks to make PictConv work on the Atari ST, and I have to run my regression test suite first to make sure it still works fine for the Oric conversions.

The old version is here:
this version only support very basic shifter formats, ste colors are bugged, and there is no multi-palettes.

hey, a demo coder with a regression test suite!

i'm totally wondering whether that's super awesome or completely horrible, so piggie it is!

skrebbel: That's even worse, I use visual studio, perforce, I maintain a change list of what's changed, and I use UnitTest++ to validate the integrity of low level classes to make sure I don't break them :D
