You can't use a program to automatically convert original maps to TrackSpire format, because I use a very limited number of tiles to make coding easier (16 actually, instead of 256 originally). So everything has to be done by hand.

Maybe the converter could include some sort of table that would assign a tile among the 16 ones you support to every 256 original tiles ?

Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Can you animate the vehicle's floating animation as well as the afterburners?
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

Ok but why adding much more tiles would make it harder to code ? You could just check the tile on which is the player and compare it to a list of "walkable tiles" (or "non-walkable" if they are fewer), and then check if it's a special tile (acceleration, brake, finish line...).

Rather the contrary I think :P assign several of the 256 tiles to one if the 16 tiles. And I don't do that because I've never found any real aligned map nor the real tileset.

Yep, that's planned.

It's mainly because I'm lazy to draw them and that it would be very complicated to make a map on my editor with many many tiles.

I can do that but there will be some things useless after the conversion, for example originally the borders of the tracks are made of 4 tiles... And by the way, the original tileset is already included with the converter and the maps are available here : http://www.snesmaps.com/maps/F-Zero/F-ZeroMapSelect.html .

How that "draw them" ? Just use the ripped ones. And for the editor, I guess you can sort the tiles etc...

I use them, but I meant, they are not perfectly aligned (IIRC their size isn't even a multiple of 8 ).

If you feel like doing a converter, well, please do, it'll help me a lot. The format is just a plain tilemap with no header.

En faite il y a un truc qui ne va pas dans ton programme c'est l'angle de vu du terrain qui n'est pas assez haut et trop penché !

I can't say this in english sorry !

Well that's the same as what I said: to each of the 256, you assign one of the 16. I just thought it was more logical that way because you basically needed a LUT but assigning several tiles to one can't be done with a LUT.

And I don't do that because I've never found any real aligned map nor the real tileset.
Ah yeah, that's more of a problem :P.

They are aligned (http://www.snesmaps.com/maps/F-Zero/F-ZeroMap01MuteCity1.html : 6880*3488).

If you don't plan adding more tiles then I just need your current tileset for the converter.
