[DOWNLOAD] BMP2TIM

Post by Shadow » September 25th, 2015, 4:00 pm

WHAT IS IT?
This is a replacement to Sony's original "BMP2TIM" found in the Psy-Q SDK. This version is much better than Sony's original compilation from 1995 as it allows you to easily create 4-bit, 8-bit, 16-bit or 24-bit images all from a command prompt. Overall, it converts a bitmap to a TIM image.

NOTES:
If anyone finds or suspects a bug in the program, please let me know and I will get it sorted.
Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 was used to create this application, so it should work fine under any Windows system, including as far back as good old Windows 95 (which is what I was going for).

If anyone would like a custom version, that, for example, clears the screen before the program runs or displays the bare minimum output required (prevent command prompt flooding), just let me know.

KNOWN BUGS:
Version 1.0 -> None.
