VICE Palette File (vpl) editor.

Post by buzbard » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:58 pm

Here's a program that I put together to edit VICE Palette Files (vpl).
Image
PaletteEditor .11.zip

This is a Windows program, (sorry to everyone else).
It requires the Visual Basic 6 runtime dll.

Press 'F1' for a list of keys used.

You'll notice a small box in the lower-right corner of the program that changes color. That color is whatever color that happens to be under your mouse. Press SPACE or ENTER to copy that color into the selected color number. Makes it really easy to capture colors from screenshots. :D

I've tried to weed out all the bugs, I think I got 'em all, but if you find one let me know here.

Enjoy! 8-)

Visual Basic 6 source code: PaletteEditor-Source .11.zip

Great tool! A lot better than modifying the values by hand as I used to do.

Thanks, that was whole idea for this, to make editing the palette as simple a possible.

I added a link to the source code in the first post.

That's some nice bit of work, Ray! I have already uploaded it to our group Dropbox, have it callable from Notepad++, and have begun using it for palette work. Very simple to operate -- actually, it's as easy as it could be, and the color grabber is a nice touch! I love the file size.

A great example.

Thanks, glad your finding a use for it.

There's a new version available. Links are updated in first post.
I added a "preview" window, PET palettes, I separated the VIC & VICII palettes, and added a rudimentary way to distinguish between VIC & VICII palettes (when loading) and various bug fixes.
