The Ultimate Palette Converter


Hello everyone!

I'm proud to present my new tool. I called it the ultimate palette converter because it supports many formats:

1. AdobeColorTable (.act)
2. AdvanceMap (.pal)
3. AdvancePaletteEditor (.gpl)
4. GIMP (.gpl)
5. IrfanView (.pal)
6. VisualBoyAdvance/TileMolester Alternate (.pal)

How to use: just drag your palette file on exe icon and choose the proper number with the keyboard

NOTE: If you choose AdvanceMap or AdvancePaletteEditor as your output then program will convert only FIRST 16 colors of the palette file (those formats support only 16 colors)

If you have any questions or find any bugs feel free to write in the comments

I know my english is bad but I tried my best

PS: Please tell me what do you think about this tool

UPDATE (v1.1)

This update was done on BLACK0UT request
The AdvanceMap output format now has the colours rounded to multiples of 8 (AM simply messes up the colours that aren't the multiples of 8)

First post :O I'm really surprised nobody has commented on this yet. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for when it comes to tile insertions as manually editing palettes between A-Map and Irfanview is such a pain. Thank you so much!

This is great. Straightforward, as well.

It'll save everyone a minute or so here and there.

That adds up to a lot ^_^

I'm afraid you have an error
Steps to reproduce:
* Export 16 color palette from irfanview
* Import with tool
* Export with tool for advance map

Effects:
Red and Blue channels are swapped.

★ full metal.

I like to push it,
and push it,
until my luck is over.

Finally. The irony on using APE is gone.
All hail Palette Master.

Hmm, that's strange. I tried it and it worked for me...
Could you present your problem with screenshots?

Here you are. :o
( Even though the Advance Map palette editor shows the greens being green, that's because my greens had red and green values that were close enough to not be immediately noticed. It's much more apparent in the red, blue, and brown colors however ).

I did the same steps as you did (I used your image and palette):

It is working for me... What is your version of AM?

You should try this on 1.92 version. 1.95 is very buggy (open beta) so maybe that is your problem

I Can't believe you were able to update this within a day of me bringing up an error, BRAVO!

Anyways guys, for those of you who use Irfanview, this tool is a gift from the tile gods! No more converting every single pallet color by hand! It works flawlessly with Advance Map 1.92, and if you like 1.95, then i guess you can transfer the pallet on 1.92, then switch to 1.95. Thank you so much Rasenshurikenbum. This will help so many people!


EDIT: Make sure the transparent color is put first on the IrfanView Pallet! This tool is officially perfect

It doesn't work for anyone, I'm afraid. If someone has downloaded this and can provide a link to it, I'll attach it back to the first post.
