PCX2GRP is a simple program that I use for creating the data for the player graphics in my Atari VCS 2600 games. It takes PCX graphics files with a resolution of 320 by 200 pixels and 256 colours and converts them into assembler data tables that can be included into the game source code. That way I can use any of the many graphics programs, that can edit this format, to design the moving objects for my games. PCX2GRP will start scanning the picture in the top left corner and interpret all colour values between 0 and 127 as pixels of an object and all colour values between 128 and 255 as pixels of the background.
