converting sprites from gbc to ti?
« on: September 15, 2007, 09:25:00 am »
Does any one know if there is an easy way to rip sprites from a gameboy color game to a jpeg(s), bitmap(s) or png(s) ? I'm wanting to know for use in a TI game cause it would save me a HUGE amount of time instead of trying to copy them all by hand... .

the best way is that if you own a game on it, google a rom download website (unfortunately since it's illegal to distribute roms I can't post a link here sorry), and download the rom of the game, then play it in a Gameboy Color emulator at lowest resolution possible or in windowed format, then press printscreen, open MS paint, paste the image got with printscreen here using CTRL+V, then save as BMP. You should have the sprites you need then
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yea, I've considered that too, but that would still be pretty time consuming. I just thought there might be a faster way?

I would just load the sprite sheet up into GIMP, XnView, or Paint, and then save it as a monochrome bitmap, or something to that effect.

You can either get a ROM, and rip the sprites, or exhaust google as it seems you already have. Search for Game Sprite Archives, I am sure they have some Dragon warrior sprites.

I will try and search for you.

EDIT: 2 seconds later and I find...

http://www.gsarchives.net/index2.php?category=all&system=nes&game=dragon_warrior
http://www.gsarchives.net/index2.php?category=all&system=nes&game=dragon_warrior_4

I think you should try and redefine you searches on google. It was pretty easy to find all those sprites.

Just search for a sprite ripper on Google. I am too lazy to do it right now because of my sickness.

I didn't knew there was even any RPGs at all on the GBC besides zelda which is more action adventure and Pokemon o.oblink.gif . over here it was pretty unpopular because of this

could you use Dragon Warrior 1 sprites for NES? Assuming the GBC version is a port from the NES one and that GBC graphics are pretty much the same quality than on the NES it should be the same, right?

Being as dragon warrior  I is old as dirt the graphics are none to studly on the old NES. The GBC got a complete graphics overhaul, plus nes screen size is way bigger than a ticalc, so i want to use something that will be sized similarly :)smile.gif

ah ok, i was sure the one on GB didnt got graphic overhaul.

I think you'll have no choice but to use a rom/emu or have someone find the sprites then because else idk if it's possible to hook a gameboy to a PC :(sad.gif
