PICO8Tool Is a Windows tool for exporting and importing images from your .p8 carts.
Drag and Drop a .p8 file to preview graphic data. Then click on the Extract button to save as an 8bit png
- Drag and Drop the .p8 file you wish to to embed a new image
- Next Drag and Drop a valid image file to replace the current image in the view
- Click the Embed button to import the current image and update the .p8 file
- Pan and zoom the loaded image with the left button and wheel
Very nice, thanks!
My cart downloader tool is written in c#/.net too. We could combine sources into one project ... and add a handy carts browser with catalog functionality.
Edit: It's difficult to use without PICO8 palette template... I'm adding a checkbox for color-snapping
Edit: Forked it on github and created a pull request
@movAX13h thanks for update. I pulled your changes into the v0.2 branch. I want to add a few more things before I push another release. I'm already using your palette feature locally! Also thanks for the cart download tool its really handy.
In another thread Zep was talking about adding a command line cart launch support. A cart browser/launcher app would be nice. Once I get a few more features in the PICO8Tool, we can talk about combining apps.
@darkhog thanks! I would like to do a full paint/tile tool that support PICO8. I'm planning to do it as a different app (C/C++ instead of C#) to support Mac/Linux platforms.
That project wont start until I finish my 2nd PICO8 game I'm currently working on.
Its mostly about the aesthetics with using Windows Forms. Mono WinForms on the Mac looks pretty hideous (it doesn't use the native controls).
I did PIOC8Tool in C#/Windows because it was easy and I wanted something fast so I can make more games!
I can easily add a Open File dialog. I'll add it to the next update. I'm not familiar with CrossOver. Is it just wine?
@matt would you use a command line version? That would also be easier for Linux
New version available v0.2-alpha
- Load File button to load images or P8 carts via open file dialog
- @movAX13h excellent image conversion support
