At this point in time, what's the best utility to bulk covert .dsk files into TIFILES/FIAD files? For example, I give it TIInvaders.dsk, I get individual LOAD, GAME,GAMF, and CATALOG files out of it, each with a proper header, since that's the files that are on that disk. I have a bunch of .dsk files I'd like to process, hence my looking for a bulk solution. The goal is to be able to use them with Classic99. (I know Classic99 can use .dsk files, but I want to be able to easily mix and match what files are on the "disk".)
Hi Guys This is my first post here so please be gentle with me. I'm from the UK and I've recently bought a couple of Heavy Sixer's from the States. I have modded one of them with a composite video kit and it works great. However, I was wondering what else I would need to do to convert the system into a PAL unit? I've read about the TIA and how it differs so my questions are: a) Could I replace the system board only with a PAL light sixer, keeping the switch board and all other original components? Would this work? b) If I was to keep the system board and replace the TIA with a PAL unit, is there anything else I need to consider? The info on the internet I've found seems to be pretty vague. I read something about the crystal also needing replacing and maybe some other bits? Thanks in advance
SC22PC - Convert MSX Screen 2 bitmap pictures into ColecoVision bitmap pictures by Daniel Bienvenu aka NewColeco January 2017 Description This tool extracts the PATTERN and COLOR tables (6K each) from a MSX .sc2 file and save it into a neat 12K .pc file. Technical Infomation MSX .sc2 file is essentially a memory dump of the seven (7) video registers followed by 14K graphics data in video ram, aka VRAM. Technically, that includes also sprites which can be used to patch the picture to avoid color clash effect. ColecoVision .pc file is simply the bitmap screen, composed of 3 charsets, made of two (2) tables: PATTERN and COLOR. No sprites data. Note: It is possible to use .sc2 file into ColecoVision projects, but be sure to consider three (3) things: the video register flag "4K/16K" has no impact on MSX computers but does on ColecoVision game system, the VRAM data is the important part, a good lossless data compression should be applied on VRAM data to save memory space.
