Majikeyric’s Cross-Tools Suite V1.0

Public Released on 10.03.2009 [CSDb direct link]

Here is a *small* part of the C64 cross tools (10 included in this pack!)
I wrote during the past years.
I make them public by releasing the most stable and useful ones.


This pack contains the following tools:

CMPPIC:

CMPPIC is a commandline tool (Win32) which compares 2 C64 pictures of same
format and calculate their delta.
Easy bitmap animations is the aim of this tool.


FNT2PIC:

FNT2PIC is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert a charset to a C64
picture.


PACK:

PACK is a commandline tool (Win32) which can pack files using a simple RLE
algorithm. The almost same used in Amica Paint picture files in fact
but mine is a bit more efficient…
The resulting files can be easily included in your production.

I used this tool to include the 21 pictures of Pluto in my demo : Pluto Rulez

* Source code provided to unpack the resulting data


PCX2PIC:

PCX2PIC is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert PCX pictures into C64
pictures.
This is not a graphic converter, this is a file format converter
(no quality loss).


PIC2IMG:

PIC2IMG is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert several parts from
several C64 pictures into a C64 sprites bank.
You can mix hires or multi sprites in the same bank (as you can mix koala,
amica or art studio pictures with the tool).


PIC2LOGO:

PIC2LOGO is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert C64 pictures into
charset logos (charset + screen memory + COLOR MEMORY (each char can have its
own individual color!))


PIC2PCX:

PIC2PCX is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert C64 pictures into
PCX pictures.
This is not a graphic converter, this is a file format converter (no quality
loss).


PIC2SPR:

PIC2SPR is a commandline tool (Win32) which can convert parts of C64 pictures
into C64 sprites.
For mass usage and generating sprite banks have a look at PIC2IMG.


PICREMAP:

PICREMAP is a commandline tool (Win32) which can remap 4 colors (multi) or
2 colors (hires) pictures accordingly to the color/bit pattern combination
passed in parameters.


UNPACK:

UNPACK is a commandline tool (Win32) which can unpack files packed with my PACK
tool (as simple as that ;-).


I hope some of you will find some of them useful. In fact when cross
developping they are the only tools I need along with ACME, Vice, Exomizer and
GrafX2. All in one, included in a crosstool chain, I find cross work very fast
and productive.

I also provide some useful (at least for me) pcx template pictures.
