I'm kind of jumping into the middle of this, since I don't have any real 2600 expertise, but FWIW, several of the hobby Lynx developers (including me) have written PCX -> Lynx sprite converters. I can take any 16-color PCX graphic and display it on the Lynx almost identically. I could be swayed to provide the C++ source code (written in DOS Borland C++) if anyone thinks it would be beneficial. ________________________ / / | Carl Forhan <>< | For Atari, Breeders, HeroQuest, and more: | forhan@xxxxxxxxxxxx | http://www.millcomm.com/~forhan/games.html \_______________________\ -- Archives (includes files) at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/archives/ Unsub & more at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/stella.html Don't post pirate BINs to Stellalist.
