@ Peacemaker: check the production notes.
It does not convert from PC to C64, you have to do that yourself first.

Unlimited would be nice :)

(saves me some time in doing multi conversions since i still have an idea left in my head with multiple charset animations and more then 9 frames)

@Style: if the demand is there I'll increase that limit (or make it "unlimited").

I forgot I had to release this (thanx Chico for reminding me ;-)

Only improvement is the creation of inverted charsets.
Also I've added a small example to show you how to use the files in your own productions.
