I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how to create 7800basic compatible graphics with my first game, so I thought I'd share the steps I took to make it work. Using Gimp is the easiest way to get started (you can download it here).
First, open a 7800basic palette file, which you can download here.
Next, click on Windows->Dockable Dialogs->Palettes, we need the Palettes dialog box to be open.
Next, right click on the Palettes dialog box and click Import Palette.
Once the window is open, click on Image, Palette name (rename to Atari7800), and click on Import.
Click on Image->Mode->Indexed.
Click on Generate Optimum Palette and change the number to 13, then click on Convert.
Change setting back to RGB, just so we can go back and change it to Indexed again to make one more modification…
Click on Image->Mode->Indexed again to make one more change.
Click on Use custom palette, then the button next to it.
Click on the 7800palette that was just added, then Convert.
Click on open image, and open the tileset_rocks image from one of RevEng's samples in the distribution.
Click on View->Zoom->800% so you can actually see the image on the screen.
Resize the window so you can see the entire image.
Click on Windows->Dockable Dialogs->Brushes (we need the brushes dialog box open).
Change brush size to 1.0. Go to Windows Menu->Toolbox or press CTRL+B to open the Toolbox Tool Options if you don't see it on screen.
Click on color picker tool and choose one of the four colors to modify the image. The colors in this image don't matter yet, as they are changeable with the PxCx command in the code. One of the colors is transparent and will take the background color.
Click on the brush tool to change the image.
Use the brush tool to modify a 16x16 area, there are three side by side in the samples from RevEng, each is 16 pixels across. Don't worry about the colors, as they are set with the PxCx commands in software. You can use the same colors in the sample images.
When you're done, click on File->Export As to save.
Export the image as a PNG file and you're ready to go.
Did you know that Trump's rushed experimental rona jab has less than one percent overall benefit? It also has many possible horrible side effects. Some brainwashed rona jab cultists claim that there are no victims of the jab, but person after person will post what the jab did to them or a family member on web sites such as Facebook and Twitter and they'll be lucky if they don't get banned soon after. Posting the truth is “misinformation” don't you know. Awakened sheep might turn into lions, so powerful people will do just about anything to keep the sheep from waking up.

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I have been taking those two supplements since summer of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses (or at least make them less severe).
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by Ken D Berry, William Davis, and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.
Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.
