Smart Fpg Editor 0.1.0

I’ve uploaded a new version to the project page. The new version, though, does not add to the end user more than the possibility to create 8bpp FPGs (loading the palette from a PAL, MAP, FNT or FPG file) and includes a minor bug fix for the open/save dialogs (internally other changes have occur).

However, a new package has been added: “binary zip package” which contains the binaries of the program without the need of an installer. If you plan to use it, be sure to read the “README-FIRST.txt” file included in the ZIP. Basically you will need to run the “register.cmd” batch file and that’s it.

I recommend to uninstall previous version before upgrading to a new one.

I wanted also to point out that some users have made it run in Linux via Wine and winetricks. If you want to try, download the binary package files (you can also use the installer but then you will need to use regsvr32 to register the components). On wine you will need this main packages:

  • vb6run: (in fact it seems that MSVBVM60.DLL is the only one needed)
  • gdiplus

If your cmctl32.ocx version is not updated, you may also need that package.

I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has tried the program: Do the FPG are correctly generated? Can you open them in Div/Fenix/Bennu? Do the program work well in Linux? Do the program run in Windows Vista? And in Win98, Me, 2000, etc.? All this kind of things…
