QL Sprites

Sprite Editor  

Last Updated: 14/07/16

eddi.zip Eddicon is an icon/sprite editor to create sprites in mode 64 or mode 4 or to save them as .bmp for use in Wolfgang Lenerz program. Existing sprites in a variety of modes such as 32 and 33 (QXL/QPC and Q40/Q60) can be loaded and edited. Or sprites can be created from scratch. The editor has a number of novel features including an independently editable alpha channel, undo function and a simple merge to combine 2 sprites of the same size, and other features such as home directory and colour theme awareness. It is in an alpha/beta status but is fully usable, but there may still be bugs due to the complexity of the program, that require additional users to identify. (Duncan Neithercut) (92K) [06/08/09]

sprlib.zip Complementary to Eddicon above, this is a program to concatenate a list of sprites into a single library file that can be loaded by LRESPR or linked into a Qliberated program using the REMark $$asmb directive. The addresses of the sprites in the library may be accessed through a single keyword that is part of the library file. This makes it straightforward to add multiple high colour sprites to Qliberated programs. Eddicon uses this system for its mode64 icons although the sprite library maker program will work with sprites of any mode and a mixture of modes in a single file.
