WANTED: Someone to convert ANSI to PETSCII

Howdy.

I have commissioned some BBS screens in ANSI format that are simply amazing. Unfortunately, the artist doesn't know anything about doing PETSCII.

I am willing to pay to have these screens converted from ANSI to PETSCII. The graphics are not heavily shaded nor full of dual-color cells.

The URL to the graphics is:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0By1chBa0OtQpVzhNdlNvYXJJbHBfQ..

If you're interested in the job, please PM me with a price and when you could have it done.

well, thats not a very advanced ansi screen to begin with - when they almost only use filled blocks like this one, you can even do it with a script :)

Such a script would be a great service the community. Care to put your skills where your mouth is?

@King Durin: Yes, well done. But I'd say don't give up so easily on the original artist: anyone who does ANSI should be nerdy enough to be interested in PETSCII as well. Of course it would be cool to introduce him to the real machine - e.g. with a nice PETSCII gfx collection like Tales of Esgaroth ; I could imagine that it does catch his interest. Of course if you find a suitable PC editor, to make it easier for him to play around a bit, all the better. Sooner or later he'll get himself a breadbin anyway, I'm sure. :-)

OK,

I created a tool Petscii Converter 1.0.0 to convert the JSON from http://petscii.krissz.hu/ to SEQ.

A lazy and non-1337 option for the more complex ANSIs might be Playscii. It supports both ANSI and PETSCII, so perhaps you are able to convert it somehow. I didn't try it myself though.

Did not ever try, but wouldn't it be an option to downscale with Photoshop/Gimp/whatever pre-wiring to 40 tiles width, save as BMP and then use tool by algorithm?

In case colors clash, rework manually with
Petscii Editor 4.6 by fieserwolf

No idea if this works out, just saying

I found an AWESOME tool for Windows simply called "PETSCII" that provides a really good editor with the ability to output a C file. I've updated my PetsciiToSeq tool to allow input of the C file as a source and write it to SEQ and vice-versa.

Pressing Q in the editor should create a SEQ directly. It's almost untested, though, and might not work with lowercase.

Yeah, I tried that and the results were less than optimal. Plus, it cannot read an existing SEQ file, which is pretty vital for modifying your existing works.
