Hello everyone!

Do you have problems with importing palette files in AdvanceMap? And are you the unlucky non-Photoshop user? With my program you will be able to use GIMP palette files in AdvanceMap

The most universal format for palette files is .act (AdobeColorTable). You can easy export palette file and import it to AdvanceMap. Unfortunately this file format is reserved ONLY for Photoshop - that's a really sad information for GIMP users GIMP has .gpl file format but it's incompatible with AdvanceMap.

Because of that I decided to make an easy-to-use GIMP to AdvanceMap .gpl converter.

Just drag your GIMP palette file on exe icon and it's done

The converter file can be used in AdvanceMap as APE palette (but it's not compatible with HackMew's AdvancePaletteEditor).

NOTE: The program will convert only first 16 colors of the palette file (that's why you should have 16 colors palette )

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

Sorry for my bad english anyways

I realized that, so I decide to make a much better version

New version of my program is now under the development!

I'm currently making a better program that will support much more formats:
1. AdobeColorTable (.act)
2. AdvanceMap (.pal)
3. AdvancePaletteEditor (.gpl)
4. GIMP (.gpl)
5. IrfanView (.pal)
6. VisualBoyAdvance/TileMolester Alternate (.pal)

Current progress:

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

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

I won't upload the program until I finish. Then I delete this post and make a new one

Charakter maker 1999 which is free saves you palettes as .act too which are easy loadable into a-map.
Just as a info

Wow, I've had this issue for years of not getting the palletes quite straight.
Now that I am getting back into Advance roms this makes life a lot easier. Thank you.
