Repton Map Display & Repton Map Decoder

Repton Map Display

This is a utility that allows you to load the Repton data files from any format. It will also then allow you to save them as another format (of the same game). The main reason for this utility came about because the extra screens for Repton 3 released on the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron were never released for the Commodore 64 (i.e. Around The World In 40 Screens, Life Of Repton and Repton Thru' Time). This is now also used to provide some of the maps on the Repton Resource Page (particularly the themed graphics maps). It is currently capable of fully decoding and displaying:


Repton
BBC, Electron, ZX Spectrum, Archimedes, RiscPC and Desktop Repton
Repton 2
BBC, Electron, ZX Spectrum, Archimedes, RiscPC and Desktop Repton
Repton 3
BBC, Electron, Commodore 64, Archimedes, Desktop Repton (Low and High Res), PC (locked feature - requires password) and PC Graphics (r3g files)
Also, Harry Wood's PC conversion of Repton 3
Repton Infinity
BBC and Electron
EGO: Repton 4
Archimedes
Repton: The Lost Realms
BBC and Electron
In addition, it can also cope with:
Bonecruncher
BBC and Electron
Ripton
BBC

And encode and save:
From any Repton 3 format to BBC Micro Repton 3.
From any Repton 3 format to Acorn Electron Repton 3.
From any Repton 3 format to Commodore 64 Repton 3.
From any Repton 3 format to Acorn Archimedes Repton 3.
From any Repton 3 format to Desktop Repton 3 Low Res.
From any Repton Infinity format to BBC Repton Infinity.
From any Repton Infinity format to Electron Repton Infinity.
(Repton Infinity export can also split the game file into the component parts)
Bitmaps/GIFs/PNGs/JPEGs of all maps and characters.
CSV files of all maps, with descriptions.
Bitmaps/GIFs/PNGs/JPEGs of PC Repton 3 graphics, which can then be loaded by the PC Repton 3 Editor.



Repton Map Decoder

Here is an application, which eventually may be incorporated into Repton Map Display, will take a screenshot of PC Repton 1 or 2 Editor and attempt to convert this to a full-size bitmap. It will also output the maps as GIF, PNG, JPEG or as a CSV file with references into the character atlas.



If you think you will find these applications useful, please let me know. I would also be interested if it fails on any of your screen grabs for you to send me said images for me to analyse. Please contact me here if you have any ideas or suggestions for improvement, or have found a bug and need it squashed.
