Tool to Convert BMP into C array
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:18:58 pm »
Hi, does someone know a tool that converts .bmp files into a C array?
It really sucks to do this manually, especially at larger picutes :-\

I don't remember exactly when, but I've been using it for months (like, since before Block Dude was released). :)

EDIT:  If anyone ever needs one of these tools that is not on the internet, I can easily make one.  I had to write one anyway for my video player :)

There's a tool that's been around for a while on TI-bank. It is part of a very early image viewer program, but there was a thread for it here with a download. It is called bmptoc.

bmptoc is not really that great anymore, as it does not compress the picture data into hex code, making the images double the size that they actually have to be.

Nice I forgot SC did that kind of conversion. I was sure it mostly covered 83+ stuff.
