MultiColor v0.1.1 (Win32/Linux/OSx) released by Skoe

February 26th, 2009 No comments

MultiColourMultiColor is an image manipulation tool for Commodore 8-bit computers’ graphics formats. It is an old-school painting program for graphicians but not an image converter. Currently VIC-II multicolor bitmap is the only supported image format.

Features:

  • Written in C++, so it’s quite fast and no special runtime is required.
  • Can be compiled for many platforms, because it uses wxWidgets.
  • Can load Koala and Amica, file type is detected independently from file name.
  • Behaviour when hitting the color-per-cell-limit can be selected.
  • Undo/redo.
  • Tools with realtime preview (e.g. Line)
  • Basic TV emulation.
  • Zoom, with grid at higher zoom factors.

MUCSU-Hires Converter – (C) 2009 Algorithm / Algotech

February 23rd, 2009 No comments

This program converts images to a new c64 graphic format known as MUCSU Hires (MUltiColor Sprite Underlay Hires). It is merely a hiresolution bitmap image with an X expanded multicolor sprite underlay. The Hires underlay variant of this mode has been created before (known as extended hires).

After reading a few forum posts mentioning that the multicolor version of this mode was unrealistic and would provide too many restrictions, I decided to produce this converter to prove that this is not the case as well as wanting to use this particular format for my own production.

SHO-FLI Converter Update 3 – (C) 2009 Algorithm / Algotech

February 18th, 2009 1 comment

soh-fli-nflSHO-FLI (Sprite Hires OVerlay FLI/Sprite OVerlay Hires FLI) is a custom c64 graphic mode which features a hiresolution spriteoverlay in one color over a FLI image.

It works in exactly the same way as the SHFLI mode but the image data is wider due to using 1 sprite overlay (rather than two in SHFLI) – This GFX mode is also known as SHF-XL originally invented by Crossbow/Crest. I created this Application because this gfx mode is rather awkward to paint in.  Plus there does not seem to be any converters released.

HISTORY:

UPDATE 3 – 17/02/09

  • Selective ordered dither implemented – now default  Dithers pixels only if they dont fall in the c64 color range.
  • White is now displayed as white.
  • Ability to select background color (for asthetic purposes only. does not affect the 144×168 image)
