@Syshack, you made my day! This is actually working like a charm!
1. Install Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Plus from SourceForge
2. Do not install P1 into system drive!
3. You don't have to use "Runa as admin.."
4. Everything is working fine: import/export'load/save in all formats.
5. Do not use SETUP from the links above, this one actually not fully working. Try previous 0.6 installation exe.
That's all :D

great news, the "invalid.." messages come from a buggy foolproof code. ignore them.
User Comment
Submitted by Syshack on 29 August 2016
I have now tested it in a clean, newly installed Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 (VMWare) VMs and it works!

It starts always with 2 Error Messages about the invalid "ResoDiv" and "FliMul" values in der "ProjectOne.ini" (altough those values are there). But other than that it works as far as I can tell. I can load a Kaola pic with no issues.

I also installed it on my physical Win10 machine and it works the same.

To install, right-click on the setup file "p1_v06_setup.exe" and start it with "Run as Administrator".

My guess is that Microsoft must have added some compatibility improvements in the last few patches during the last few months.

Quoting Ptoing
So what does this do that other stuff, like Timathes does not do? I installed it recently, and unless it has some ace conversion tools, what is the use.
Well, first of all, it is stable. At least it never let me down. Timanthes is continuously crashing on all of my boxes. Other than that, I hate Timanthes' flamboyant, photoshoppy interface. P1's straightforward UI and its likeness to traditional C64 pixelling tools makes it rustic, cozy and familar.

Quoting Ptoing
I for one would rather poke my eyes out with a rusty spoon than actually pixel in it D:

I beg to differ, I think it is really enjoyable and rewarding to work in it. For me, pixelling in it creates a certain ataractic state of mind which is close to the soothing emotions I feel only when painting on a real C64. No Timanthes nor any other tool has that effect on me.
But well, to each his own. No one forces you to pixel in it ;)

@hedning & others who want to use P1 on a modern Windows: I have just managed to run v0.6 under Windows 8.1 with the help of VirtualBox. Install XP as a virtual machine, and run the shit in seamless mode. Works like a charm!

Too much messing about, for my HiRes I'll stick with this for now:
User Comment
Submitted by e5frog on 22 March 2015
Missing drag and drop, v0.5 works better with HiRes two color plain bitmap - this one jagges everything up. I could also not save p1 files - get an error about file name/address.
How about adding converter options for next version? There's this P1P2 - Project One HiRes Converter and this already P1 Converter V1.1.6
Why jump between programs if you can have it all in one?
Will continue with v0.5 for now.

User Comment

it was never seriously tested, and if it ever worked, possibly some other change broke it. try to go with custom save, that *may* work. or you can extract what you need from "p1format" (if it still works?) that fileformat is described in the help.

HiColEdit will not fix swapped nybbles, Oswald will just have to fix P1.

Isildur: Magervalp made a quick tool called HiColEdit (HiColEdit release 1) which deals with manually fixing clashed nybbles in art studio format pictures... if that helps.
User Comment

you can export hires in custom save, but nibbles will be swapped, having wrong order. use the older p1 for it (v0.5), this one is broken badly atm.

Joe: i know that, but i have situation when Congo completely fu**ed up nibbles in art studio format (2 colors bitmap) :(
User Comment
Submitted by Joe on 5 September 2011
Isildur: ConGo seems to make a fair result in saving it as .art, which is perfectly ok to edit directly in Art Studio afterwards. Most converters chuck up the nibbles over the hill or something, resulting in fantastic failures loading the hires-image in native c64 hires programs (insert any name).

The exe in the DL link does not even do that. :) all conversions results in a gray screen.

Submitted by STE'86 on 23 August 2011
the replace 4th colour bug was that even if you checked the option, the program didnt change the colour that you drew over. it did nothing. however you have definitely fixed that for me last year.

I import and convert gifs in this version all the time. I know the import dialogue is borked, but if you start typing the name in the dialogue box then it will find your files for you.
User Comment
Submitted by Oswald on 23 August 2011
I remember, but not what was the bug exactly? Either please tell me that, or check the setup on the (updated now) DL link if you care :) Thanks!

edit: *sigh* its broken heavily, converting pitctures is not possible. keep your current versions :) Well, that's something to spend my time after work, now that I have no net at home :)

Seems like the replace 4th color function don't work for me in v0.6.
I'm using win7.

Also, it would be nice if you could draw with the middle mouse button (background color) instead of just putting single pixels one by one!

Quoting Mr.Mouse
It told me I'm not having MBMouse.ocx. Do you have it with the VB.NET install or something?

You have to copy 0.6 over 0.5 installation. See summary.

ps. Picture import doesn't work. It gives: D:\mine\VB\p1srcbkp\p1source\hbtable_experimental.txt is missing from the application dir, cant convert picture.

ps.ok found it (ProjectOne.ini) :P But it still doesn't convert anything (results in gray fullscreen pic).

After installing this patch, I always get the following error message as soon I enter the program window with my mouse:
Error Number 11 at Project_One.ZoomWindow.ZoomPic_MouseMove line 116
Division by Zero

I'm using WinXP/SP3

Meanwhile I'll try to change back to 0.5
User Comment
Submitted by Oswald on 20 January 2010
yes I know that, the problem is that the algorithm looks for fill color for the already filled areas, but in ditherfill one of the colors will not indicate done areas for the routine, and somewhere there's a deadend because of that. Probably I'll have to add another array to indicate what area was already filled, to get this work.because of the problem if one of the dither colors is also the color to be filled... Carrion, I'll up the source soon.

Does it need the old installation? (ie. is this an upgrade)? Why not posting a 'full' version?

Cheers. Maybe you should make it open source and have some other devs help improving it?

ufli/vdc(/ted) is not finished, so no suprises there. :) flag sticking is just a GUI bug, internally the mode is changed. I'll remove these misleading non working modes. what new dither mode/resolution ? :) thanks for the reports & feedback.
User Comment
Submitted by Ed on 16 January 2010
New and updated version also works on Windows 7, except for a glitch with choosing the different graphic resolutions.

Ufli does not work now, also there are some weird bugs with choosing VDC where the flag sticks, even if other graphic modes are chosen.

Nice to see the new dither method and graphic resolution. Adding more of those could come in handy.

I first installed the old version (Project one 0.5) and afterwards copied the files of this release and replaced the others in the C:/Program/Project One directory.

I also edited the ProjectOne.ini file after that and searched for the following (note my change into the correct program-path!) ...and even got it to run under Parallells/Windows XP on my Mac!

ColorTable_VICII=C:\Program Files\Project_One\hbtable_vicIIc.txt
ColorTable_TED=C:\Program Files\Project_One\table_ted6.txt
ColorTable_VDC=C:\Program Files\Project_Onehbtable_vdc.txt
User Comment

This is a Work In Progress version(!!!), but most things I guess should work that did in the previous one. Installation: Overwrite your old P1 dir with these files.

There's a new exe: TableEdit. Open a palette with it first, then one of the HBtable*.txt files (open table). It allows you to edit the table used by the "color sensitive" color filter. (copy paste of any size of the grid is supported) Then in the import picture GUI you have a tab where you can select which table to use.

use it carefully - no idea how stable is this one, but now it has error handling, which means a lot of bugs may be ignored and the code can continue, except if the code steers itself into a deadend ;)

good luck :)

ps: oh, if tableedit fails, try to copy msflxgrd.ocx into system32, windows, etc :)
