There seems to be an issue with loading images that are of very large filesize (eg 3 megapix or above). This only applies to JPEG images not bitmap I would recommend that you resize the image to the correct dimensions first or save the image as a bitmap file.
Furthermore on Vista, the progressbars do not appear.
I dont know what the issue is with the slow conversion of images.
On my dual core machine T2390, it processes the image in a few seconds. It should not make any difference whatsover on the size of the image as the converter only operates on the 144x168 viewport.
I have tried various jpegs, although maximum around 1280x1280 in size and everything seems fine.

Well... perhaps I am using it in a wrong way(?) but the application does not seem to be able to load many different types of jpgs. Actually I was just able to open 1 out of 5 or so. I also do not understand why it does take such a long time while converting.

FlimFlam/CP: If you are on a PowerMac, use VirtualPC, if on an applepeecee, use Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion or try Cider and other wine-based stuff. You can run all the windoze c64gfx editors this way.

Remove the progress bars and perhaps it will work in Wine.

I hope you are being sarcastic there :-} This tool is only for Windows unfortunately. :-{

Deekay. This is exactly the same SHF-XL mode as in the C64 editor by Crossbow. (The picture of the stickman). 144x168 pixels (6x8 sprite overlay). It is Full AFLI as you know with one hires sprite layer and centred horizontally on on the screen

Please, feel free to incorporate more features in your software. :) I miss stuff like brightness/contrast, etc. Love to see it all packed nicely in one huge pack! Keep it coming!

Windows only... *sigh*....

In how far does this relate to our SHF/SHF-XL modes?
What's the spec? Full AFLI and one 8 sprites wide spritelayer on top of it (24 chars)? what's the height? And the alignment on the screen?
