 +====== CharPack ======
 +
 +===== History =====
 +
 +CharPack is a quick tool designed to take a 24bit BMP file and convert it to a charset, colour and screen RAM. This is different to the usual bitmap screen mode conversion tools.
 +
 +The compiled EXE can be found at C64\bin\CharPack.exe
 +
 +===== Usage =====
 +
 +CharPack [-h] <input 24bit BMP> [bg colour] [colour 1] [colour 2] [chars file] [screen file] [colours file]
 +
 +Examples:
 +
 +To show what colours are used: CharPack TestScreen3.bmp
 +
 +Note colours 0 (black), 10 (light red) and 1 (white) are often used so pick those for the three colours.
 +
 +To compress characters with the colours: CharPack TestScreen3.bmp 0 10 1 chars.bin screen.bin colours.bin
 +
 +The code in C64\C64RasterTest has been updated to display this data.
 +
 +===== Source code =====
 +
 +Source code and supporting libraries are available from [[projects:​resurrection|the large archive here]].
