THIS map is from the JELPI demo written by ZEP
I recently wrote this rather nifty utility which will take a .p8 file, calculate all the sprites and the map, and then give you an option to save either as a .JPG or .PNG the entire visual map for reference. It is for WINDOWS and was requested HERE:
I am currently using MEDIAFIRE to host this file. If you can think of a better more reliable site to host it that would be fine.
You can find this utility HERE:
You can speed it up and skip the logo animations by hitting ESC once it first comes up.
It actually has a few debug stuff running which is nice to see.
Choosing a P8 file it shows:
- The sprite set, hit a key.
- A quick scan of all sprites, hit a key.
- The map image ready to save, hit a key.
- Filebox, save as PNG or JPG
- Done !
If you have any questions or suggestions for further Pico-8 tools, please let me know.
HOPE THIS HELPS !
Ah, @Yesyoor. Glad you like it !
No, Blitzmax while a nifty little language is for Windows (at least for me).
I guess if there was a Macintosh emulator or something I might be able to ...
Not here, @merwok. I would want an active BlitzMAX community to release it to if at all. The version I have is for Windows XP.
I was just checking Pico-8, apparently there is enough memory to write this converter in there. It would save the map as an external BITMAP file though, not a PNG or JPG.
It was only a matter of time for someone else to write this tool so others not using Windows could access it. Shows how important it is. :)
