Description

Erik Agsjo's Noptec Vector (Bitmap Vectorizing tool) is an implementation of a bitmap vectorizing algorithm, specifically for creating background picture resources for the Sierra AGI interpreter. The program reads an image in BMP, PCX, or TGA format, converts it to 160 x 168 x 16 colors and writes the result in AGI readable format, optionally showing the result onscreen.

Usage

Vectorizing an image. Even if the input image is resized and converted to the 16 EGA colors used by the AGI interpreter, it is best to start with a rather simple image. This helps to create picture resources that are small and more easily edited. Dithered images and images with many small dots give poor results.
