Q. What does it do? A. PCX2PAL takes the palette from a 256 color PCX image and creates an AGI palette file for use with the AGI palette changing patch.

Q. How do I use it?
A. At the DOS prompt, go to the directory where PCX2PAL is located and type:


Where [FILE.PCX] is the PCX image that you are getting the palette from and [FILE.PAL] is the palette output file.

The PCX file should be a 256 color PCX, but only the first 16 colors of the palette need to be used.

A full tutorial on using PCX2PAL and the palette changing patch is located at http://agisci.cjb.net.

Q. How can I contact you? A. You can email me at "bri_da_man@hotmail.com" with any questions, comments or bug reports regarding this program.
