I pull in the Uzebox kernel but I have my own Gconvert tools and some others.

My tool setup isn't public at this point. I would like for it to be eventually. The tools are tied to my online editor which provides a Linux environment with it's own security and web server. I have mine private. I use Cloud 9 IDE and do everything through it including compiling C and pushing code to my public-facing server. With the Online Uzebox Gamechanger and a remote load tool I do quite a bit through the web actually.

Here's an example of what can be achieved in mode 3 by having a 'mega-tile' type of compression natively supported by the graphics conversion tool:



Based on a map drawn in gimp:

Holy crap, platforming and space shooting in a single Uzebox game, please make a thread about this game soon!

That is a good example, Gimp could be the ultimate level editor for a lot of games.

I've updated the wiki entry for gconvert as well as the gconvert tutorial to reflect the new mega tile compression feature. There are two image placeholders in the gconvert tutorial write up. If anyone has image upload rights, I would appreciate if you can place the two images below in there in the order they appear here. The placeholders are level image goes here and level image with 5 x 5 grid goes here

The version number of gconvert has also been bumped to v1.7 from v1.6.

I tried manually typing the URL to upload images, and this is what I got:

Uploads disabled.

File uploads are disabled.

Return to Main Page.


If someone has access to the wiki, here are the instructions for how to configure it to allow file uploads.

I just uploaded the images and modified the wiki page, thanks to Uze re-enabling file uploads to the wiki. :)

In case you are interested I have released a new version of Gconvert. It is not a fork of the official Gconvert, it is a total re-write with some nice new features. Also, it is web-based.
