Sea-Browse 1.3C

*by Seanser/CCB 2016*

What is it ?
Another filebrowser for standard disks and mass storage devices (sd2iec).

The following keys are usable:

[V] next dir-page
[C] previous dir-page
[C=] quit SEABR
[CR] loads a programm/mount an image/play a PSID-file/enter directory/open and load .t64
[Z] cursor down
[X] cursor up
[<] go back dir level(mass storage device)
[^] Root directory
[B] changes cursor to „0“ – this is be used for the vssp (very simple sid player). Some .psid files wan´t start without this option – check it out.
[F1 – F7] switch through drives (8-11)

The browser can also be controlled by a joystick in port 2:

up               = cursor up

down             = cursor down

left             = previous page

right            = next page

up+left          = dir level up

up+right         = root dir

down+left        = exit browser

fire             = select/mount (sd2iec)/enter dir/play .psid

The browser just works correctly in showing .DIR/IMAGE/MUSIC eg. suffixes if the fiel on the disk/sd-card ends with .sid,.d64,.d81,.t64 eg.
Also remember, that the length of the filename/dirname should be max. 16 chars.

What is it ?

Soft-Kernal is a program to create an executable .prg file which contains a „kernal“ (like jiffy or other).
If loading and starting this .prg the original kernal will be replaced by the one stored in the program.

Which kernals can be used ?

As known at this time there are no limitations, but remember, that no combined (basic+kernal) files will work !!

Remember: Just use the soft-reset ($fce2 eg. Sys 64738) or the c64 will activate the internal roms.



BMP2MC 2.12f (11.05.2015)

What is it ?

BMP2MC is a  bitmap (.bmp, .jpg, .png) to C64-multicolor converter (Koala format – 16 colors or 5 grey / black and white, with optional export as .prg).

How to use ?

Two windows will appear after starting the .exe.
The first one contains all control-panels – the second one a view of the remapped bitmap.

In the first window do the following:

  1. check/uncheck the grey- / bw / fine and/or prg-button
  2. select colortable 1 or 2
  3. select „splitted“ files/or not
  4. load an bitmap/jpg/png (will be auto resized)
  5. adjust brightness (remember, that it will change it in c64 color mode)
  6. Hit „! GO !“ and DONE !

Other functions:
It´s possible to save the „remapped“ picture as a bitmap – just use the so called button.
Sometimes the „fine“ option delivers better results.
The .prg button will export to an (on C64) executable file – standalone !

The „split“ function will split the data into three files (bitmap, charmem and colormem data) – just like in my versions before.
