All Bitmap (AllBmp) is an application
made by me (Nobun) written with g++/Allegro (Allbmp main program) and
g++/Qt4 (Allbmp fronthead).
AllBmp is able to re-adapt a list of "original" images (*.PCX or *.BMP - can be both RGB or 256-colors) changing them in 256-colors images (PCX or BMP) that are "clones" of "original" images, but using a palette configuration decided by the user (must be save in one of supported formats).
Palette file format supported that can be loaded for params are:
1. Pal -> Jasc Pal format (.pal): the most common format. Used in a lot of painting program like IrfanView and I.Mage
2. Act -> Photoshop Act File (.act): it is the format used in Photoshop and used in Mugen. DON'T USE THIS OPTION IF YOU HAVE TO LOAD A BOR.ACT you have to choose the 3rd option
3. Actinv -> BOR Act File (*.act): This is a particular way-to-read act files used in BOR. I don't know if it is used in other programs. In this case the colors are not inverted.
The program is composed by 2 binaries:
1) allbmp -> the main program. It can be complex to use. I suggest to run the fronthead instead.
2) ab20front -> allbmp fronthead (the GUI). It is easy to use. Require to be in the same directory of allbmp binary.
here a shot of allbmp fronthead (the GUI)
As you can see, the most important thing to care about is to choose from “pal” to “act” to “actinv” BEFORE choosing the palette filename. Choose “pal” if you must load a Jasc Pal File. Choose “act” if you must load a Mugen Act file. Choose “actinv” if you must load a BOR Act file.
This is a list of what you do to run the program (thank to Fightn Words for the description of windows steps. I use it and I changed it a little)
Step 1) Download allbmp20-linux-install.tar.gz
Step 2) Read instructions and info about pre-requisites and building instructions and install Allegro and Qt4 (also development tools) into your linux system
Step 4) run ./DO-INSTALL or duble-click into DO-INSTALL
Step 5) Follow instructions during building process
Step 6) Run allbmp by terminal ( ./allbmp) to test screen-resolution then exit. If screen-resolution test returns an error you must change resolution by editing AllBmp.cfg and you must test again.
Step 7) You can now use All Bitmap by running ab20front.exe
Download all files for your corresponding operating system: (Windows) Mingwm10.zip, QtCore4.zip, QtGui4.zip, AllBmp20-Windows-Binary.zip
Unzip all files into a separate directory
Move alleg42.dll, mingwm10.dll, QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll into your Windows/System 32 directory
Run allbmp.exe to test screen-resolution then exit. If screen-resolution test returns an error you must change resolution by editing AllBmp.cfg and you must test again.
You can now use All Bitmap by running ab20front.exe
AllBmp is available for Windows and
Linux, both in source or binary version
Linux version of AllBmp requires Allegro and Qt4 to be installed compleatly into your system.
Windows version of AllBmp requires you download and copy alleg42.dll, QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll into c:\windows system.
alleg42.dll is included in both windows binary packages but not in the source package.
QtCore4.dll is not included in my program packages and must be downloaded from this page
QrGui4.dll is not included in my program packages and must be downloaded from this page
Here the packages available (Linux Packages, Windows Packages, Windows DLL):
To run AllBmp under windows you need mingwm10.dll, QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll Here you can download them
Size of zip: 4,6k
Size of zip: 0,97MB
Size of zip: 4,02MB
QtGui4.DLL is very large. Zipped file, luclky is not so large, but, however, for VERY SLOW connections, I uploaded a splitted version of QtGui4.zip
Splitted version of QtGui4.zip – Part I
Size of zip: 2,01MB
Splitted version of QtGui4.zip – Part II
Size of zip: 2,01 MB
You must copy all Dlls (alleg42.dll that you found into windows binaries package, QtCore4.dll that you found into QtCore4.zip and QtGui4.dll that you find into QtGui4.zip) into c:\windows\system32.
If you downloaded QtCore4-p1.zip and QtCore4-p2.zip you must follow those steps in order to extract QtCore4.dll
Note: Thank to Fightn Words to give me the information that also mingw10.dll needed in order to run the fronthead.
