Type in each line of the 8×8 sprite as a binary number, pressing Enter between lines.
This program translates your binary numbers into hexdecimal numbers for use in your own BASIC programs.

Binary to Hexadecimal Conversion Program


When making sprite DATA for the MSX, binary numbers are easier to handle, but hexadecimal numbers make for shorter DATA, so I made this simple conversion program.

How to Use

Type 1 for the visible pixels and 0 for the others (Ex.: ■□□■□■□■⇒10010101) to input 8 bytes, which will be displayed at the botton as hexadecimal DATA.
The actual sprite is displayed in the upper right corner. To generate the next DATA, press the Space key.

Modification Advice

I think putting the DATA directly inside the program would make it easier to work with.
