Long time ago, when working on Sinclair ZX-Spectrum, I was always intrigued by the ‘realistic’ screens from some games.
Today, ZX-Spectrum is an ancient machine and you probably don’t have any use for one.
However for nostalgics willing to create Spectrum software, I’m providing a few DOS based tools to assisting with conversion of bitmap based images to Spectrum screens:
- BMP2SCR - Convert .BMP files (BW and Color!!!) to ZX-Spectrum screens with attributes
- SCR2TAP - Convert .SCR files to .TAP files for usage with ZX-Spectrum emulators
These tools were created as command line executables using Borland Pascal 7.0 for DOS.
These free tools will be uploaded on http://www.worldofspectrum.org for reaching a wider audience.
