An important thing to know when editing input bitmaps for pitch graphics is that maximum allowed number of
unique tiles on pitch is 284. Amiga SWOS uses limited size of memory for tiles, and
if that limit is exceeded each tiles with index greater than 284, the memory error occurs after game started.

Thank you for being interested in the converter.
My intention is just only to develop to easy and comportable custom graphic converter for Amiga SWOS.

A couple of weeks ago I have read many articles from this forum, Horace s and other Amigas forums about Amiga editing and I also discussed with EreWeGo and Hungry Horace. I could understand and learn some knowledges from them and I found editing Amiga graphics is so difficult and time-consuming. So I have decided to develop a kind of utility for this.

The most difficult thing is to figure out the header of unpacked .map file which is the map of pitch field. That is just like a puzzle. I have printed the some hex codes and examine it in an airplane on my business trip drinking with come coffee. Finally I could shout Eureka! I found the formula of the header and tiles composition!

This utility is just a beta version now so I will try to enhance it for everyone who is interested in Amiga mod creation.

Will this utility be helpful to modify all Amiga SWOS graphics, or only the pitch?

Beta 2 can convert only pitch graphics. But beta 3 maybe be able to convert other graphics such as goal nets, goals, revolving ad-boards and title screen.

Amazing work!!! Keep it up.
Especially for Amiga. Really great.

The same program for PC SWOS would be great, too. More colors possible etc...

The converter for PC SWOS may be possible too after finishing the development of the converter for Amiga. :)
