Is there a way to export a cartridge's label image? I'm working on a mod of a cartridge and I wanted to make some small tweaks to the cart's label image.

Yes you can, @profpatonildo. The easiest way would be to bring up the P8 cart in notepad. Then find __gfx__ and change that to __label__

Just beneath that you'll find __label__ Go to change that to __gfx__

Save back as a new P8 file, not TXT.

Load it up in the editor. Edit the sprites now as your logo screen.

When done save it as a new 3rd file.

Load that new 3rd file back into Notepad. Exchange the __gfx__ and __label__ one more time so they are back where they belong, save that off as a 4th P8 file, and there you can edit it as sprites.

If you want to export the actual label image as a separate PNG file, type this simple code at the top of your existing or new:

until forever

And press F1 to save that as a PNG.

Note: It is always a good idea to press F1 after F7 to save a copy of your logo screen to screen capture so you won't have to do this again in the future.

To transfer a PNG to your F7 label picture, I wrote a bit about that HERE:

You're very welcome, @profpatonildo, and yep, @zep ! If you're reading this, please make an option to swap sprite/screen/label/memory with sprite/screen/label/memory at any point for cart development.

What a simple yet clever solution! Makes it much simpler from now on, thank you!
