GFA-Basic

GFA-Basic is the best BASIC for the Atari!

Credits

Some pluginss use portions of code written by Hans Wessels. The code segments where taken from IrfanView, which Hans placed in the public domain. However, I cannot take credit for his work. ;o) His name appears here in the docs and the pluginss which are based on his work.
The DCTV image plugin is based on code by Cholok. Used with permission. I also should mention Toni Wilen (WinUAE maintainer) for helping as well.
H.-J. Berndt the author of Public Painter supplied his decompression code.
Olivier Landemarre for information about the InShape file format.
Vincent Rivière for his m68k-atari-mint cross-tools. Philipp Donzé for his Mac port of m68k-atari-mint cross-tools.
Thorsten Otto for his gcc library builds.
Software testing: GokMasE, SWE, AtariTrek

Installation Instructions

First time users of my image plugins: The pluigns must be installed by default at c:\gemsys\plugin\ Note that ImgView doesn't need to be restarted when adding or removing plugins. ImgView does not keep plugins resident. Updating the plugins from an older installation: If you have already installed my plugins and are updating them, once in awhile I rename one. For this reason you should delete all the plugins copy all the new ones into the folder. Note: If two pluigns would happen to be installed at the same time, that accidentally handle the same file extender, the one found first will be used.
There's three JPEG plugins. Only install one! If you have an Atari Falcon030 you have the option of using the Brainstorm DSP Decoder. JPEGCPU.IL -> decode via CPU (100% CPU decoding) JPEGDSP.IL -> decode via DSP (Brainstorm DSP Decoder) JPEGNF.IL -> decode via NF API (ARAnyM nfjpeg.prg) Rename them *.ILX to disable them. Only one should be enabled.

GEMMETA

GEM Metafile Requires NVDI as it uses off-screen bitmaps. Rendered in 256 color mode. Metafiles from PC\GEM (GEM Draw for example) should load without problems. Not supported: v_bit_image()

COMPEYES

ComputerEyes (raw format) This format is not documented in the CE.PRG manual. You must hold down the Alternate key while clicking Load/Save in the drop-down menu. CE1 - 320x200 6-bits per RGB, thus 18-bit, 262144 colors CE2 - 640x200 5-bits per RGB, thus 15-bit, 32768 colors CE3 - 640x400 6-bit grayscale, thus 64 shades of gray Note: PicSwitch v1 also had an documented feature as it can load these files.

PCL

Printer Control Language This codec outputs PCL level 5 raw files. These can be sent directly to a PCL capable printer, or post processed into other formats like PDF. Quality is fixed at 300 dots per inch. Notes: Hold the ALternate key down while saving to output landscape orientation. This is a save only plugin.

FLIC

Autodesk Animator (animations) Animation speed may incorrect. It may not play all FLIC files correctly. Tested mostly with files created by Apex Media. FLX, FLT probably won't work as they use more advanced compression which isn't supported.

ASCII

Default color scheme is Black on White. Hold alternate down while loading to get White on Black instead.

COLR

C.O.L.R. Object Editor If *.PAL is found in the same directory it's assumed to be the palette. If no palette file is found, grayscale is assumed.

IFF

Interchange File Format (IFF) IFF.APP -> FireBee IFF.PRG -> All 68k machines If used on MiNT u:\ram\ will be used to write a temporary file, otherwise folder c:\clipbrd\ needs to exist. Supported image types: ILBM - standard (1 to 8, 15, 16, 21, 24 planes) DILBM - dynamic ilbm (4 planes only) RILBM - raster ilbm (4 planes only, NEOchrome Master) EHC - extra-halfbrite (6 planes) HAM6 - hold-and-modify (6 planes) DHAM6 - dynamic hold-and-modify (6 planes) HAM8 - hold-and modify (8 planes) SHAM - sliced HAM (6 planes) CTBL - dynamic HAM (6 planes) ACBM - amiga continous bitmap (1 to 8 planes only) PBM - planar bitmap (8 planes only) DEEP - HC/TC variant (24/32 planes) REG - Black Belt Systems HAM-E - Black Belt Systems Dynamic chunk support: BEAM CTBL DYCP PCHG Converts IFF 'ANNO' block into exif data. Uncompressed, RLE, and VDAT (Atari ST) Note: Degas block files are actually IFF files. The HAM-E and REG images will have blank scan lines at the top and this is normal. The HAM-E format stores special information in the first few scan lines so they are blanked on purpse otherwise it looks like garbage.

IFFDCTV

Amiga DCTV images These are IFF files with the bitmap encoded a special way. They are so complicated it's a codec in itself. They should be renamed to *.dct before trying to load them. Supports 2-bit DCTV images (non-standard). Supports 3 or 4-bit DCTV images. Converts IFF 'ANNO' chunk into exif data.

IFFRGBN

Amiga Turbo Silver (Impulse) These need to be renamed *.TSI as the amiga has no consistant naming scheme. Supports: RGBN -> 12-bit RGB RGB8 -> 24-bit true-color Converts IFF 'ANNO' chunk into exif data. Note: Only compressed images are supported.

DOODLE

Dr. Doodle images can be ST low, medium, or high. There's no resolution info in the file itself. The codec tries to auto detect the resolution. The resolution detection can be forced, hold down one of the following keys: Left-Shift -> High Control -> Medium Alternate -> Low Note: There is no color info in the file, so a default ST palette is used.

INSHAPE

InShape Raytracing Software Supports: 1-bit mono 8-bit grayscale 24-bit true-color 32-bit true-color with alpha Not supported: 4-bit color 8-bit color

STAD

ST Aided Design STAD images are always 640x400 monochrome.

SPEC512

Spectrum 512 Loads: ST palette: standard, 3 bits STE palette: standard, 4 bits STE palette: enhanced, 5 bits (auto-detected) Holding the Alternate key down when loading forces an ST/STE standard palette, this way you can see the difference between standard and enhanced.

NEOANI

NEOchrome (Animation files) These's have no palette stored in the files, grayscale is used by default. If the codecs finds *.neo of the same name in the same path, it will load the palette from the image file. Speed is estimated and may be incorrect. Alternate key -> Hold when loading to reverse aniamtion direction Caps Lock key -> Force ping-pong looping NOTE: To get this feature on versions 0.9 and later select the Grabber icon and click both mouse buttons in the eye of the second R in the word GRABBER. Interestingly enough, some versions of NEO only require you to press the right button, not both.

HRM

HighResMode These images come from the demo: "HighResMode" by Paradox From the read me file: Each picture has a resolution of 640x400 and can contain up to 14,000 colors out of a palette from 29,791 colors. It is very hard to convert 24Bit pictures to this mode so you will still see some small color bugs in the pictures. Note: Won't load ICE packed files directly.

SGX

Amiga SuperView Graphics Currently only loads uncompressed color mapped files. File extender must be: *.SGX Not supported: XPK, PP20, LZ77 compression Anything over 8 planes (need sample files) HAM modes Monochrome not test (might fail)

GFALST

Export as GFA-Basic LST Writes an ASCII LiSTing compatible with GFA-Basic. Output can be Merged into the editor. The image data is aligned for blitting. Variable names are derived from the file name. Illegal characters are replaced with and underscore, unless it's the first character in which case it's replaced with the letter 'i'. Note: Save only plugin.

GFAINL

Export as GFA-Basic INL Writes an ASCII LiSTing compatible with GFA-Basic. Output can be Merged into the editor. Also writes an *.INL file. The image data is aligned for blitting. Saving is aborted with an error if the image data won't fit in an INLINE. The limit is 32746 bytes. Variable names are derived from the file name. Illegal characters are replaced with and underscore, unless it's the first character in which case it's replaced with the letter 'i'. Note: Save only plugin.

QOI

The Quite OK Image Format https://qoiformat.org/ Note: Transparent color seems to ends up black.

UIMG

uConvert bitmap format Note: According to the author of uConvert the format has no specified file extension. The plugin requires one so we will enforce: UIM or UIMG This means you might have to rename files in order to view them. Bitmap support: Bits Colors Format 1-bit 2 planar or bit packed 2-bit 4 planar or bit packed 4-bit 16 planar or bit packed 6-bit 64 planar 8-bit 256 planar 1-bit 2 color mapped 2-bit 4 color mapped 4-bit 16 color mapped 6-bit 64 color mapped 8-bit 256 color mapped 16-bit 64k direct color 24-bit 16m direct color 32-bit 16m direct color Palette support: Type Format None Direct color ST/E 0321 TT030 3210 Falcon030 RG0B

SVG

Scalable Vector Graphics This is a very light implementation of the specificaitons and might not load all files correctly. Based on NanoSVG by Mikko Mononen https://github.com/memononen/nanosvg/

RECOIL

RECOIL - Retro Computer Image Library This plugin understands ~550 various formats. Because of numerous file extention conflicts it's treated as a special case. RECOIL decodes all formats to 24-bit color thus the original bit plane info isn't provided. It reports platform instead of format name. Compression info not provided either. RECOIL isn't very memory efficient as it internally decodes to full 32-bit which requires a lot ram. https://recoil.sourceforge.net/formats.html

Debug

Hold alt key while loading image: IFF.IM Note: Console should be open.
