This is something I was working on.
Make picture on pc, save as 16 colour BMP.
Now use one of the "bat" files to convert into a binary file.
You can run this binary and it will load and show picture on cpc.

If there is something missing from this archive I will update it.

So far I have done:

normal cpc modes 0 and 1
overscan cpc modes
plus modes 0 and 1
pictures using plus sprites

Also JavaCPC has an integrated Paint-application.
This can be used to convert bmp, jpg, png, gif, tga, pcx to CPC screens.
(Normal screens and also overscan screens)

And you can check "ConvImgCPC" which can do the same:

Someone can made a disk or tape version with this  presentaction screen?
Is simply incredible, a great game a great presentaction, the original is poor.

Heres one I was planning on using in the level hack, but I never got my head around the code so it went nowhere.
