Convert image from PNG to PI2 ?

Post by exxos » Wed Apr 15, 2020 10:14 pm

Does anyone know any programs which will convert a PC format such as PNG/BMP or whatever, into PI2 images ? Xconvert only has PI1 format and it wont do it :(

XnConvert can do PI1 but not PI2
Not sure if there is anything else that can do that.

Edit : I should fully read what you wrote before responding .. need more coffee ;)
Working ones : MegaSTE (68020) / TT030 / Falcon with AB040 & Eclipse / 1040STF
Need testing : Falcon with CT2
