MSX Viewer 5 - Light
Version 1.0 - Dezember 2020


  A MSX Viewer light version developed in Java.
1. Converter   The program Converter was designed to convert many images at once to a MSX screen format from 2 to 12.


   

  Here you can:
  • Load many PC images at once.
  • Preview the result in any image - eye icon.
  • Convert many images to the same MSX format at once.

  To run the binary file, type the following command in a DOS terminal:
java -jar converter.jar

2. Slides   This program was designed to load many MSX images at once, to navigate between them and export images to PC. It is also possible to load MSX palette for MSX images from screens 2-7.


   

  To run the binary file, type the following command in a DOS terminal:
java -jar slides.jar

3. Display   This program was designed to add display animations to screen 2 images. Thus, it is possible to set individually a display to each image and preview the result before saving.


   

  To run the binary file, type the following command in a DOS terminal:
java -jar display.jar

4. MSX 120   This program converts an image to 120 colors to be seen on screen 2, according to Daniel Vik's technique presented on some demos and BMPto105 colors program. Nevertheless, this program uses another approach to mix the colors: it uses the screen 2 name table.
  MSX 120 can only create MSX images with 120 x 192 pixels size.


       

  To run the binary file, type the following command in a DOS terminal:
java -jar msx120.jar

  To load the image on MSX:
BLOAD"IMAGE.120",R
  Where "IMAGE" is the name of the created image.

  The MSX program automatically changes screen mode to screen 2 and shows the image. If you press any key, the animation stops and the system is returned to screen 0.
