IconImport; A more flexible version of this utility has been released and can be found here.
This small BYOND project (rpg2dmi) will convert a standard RPG Maker charaset (a sprite sheet like this one) into a fully animated .dmi.
A multitude of sprite sheets can be found at Charas
Step 1: Download and Run.
Step 2: Click the "Convert Sprite Sheet" verb.
Step 3: Select the charaset you want in dmi format.
Some things to note:
-Converted icons are automatically saved in the "Converted" folder, which will be in the project's folder.
-The bottom left pixel of the sprite sheet (1,1) will be used to determine the transparent color.
-For some reason the bg color on the icons is set to black.
-This can be changed if you edit them, by double clicking on the BG color in the color palette. However, this has no real effect on the icon in-game, the BG will still show as transparent.
Feel free to post comments/suggestions/feature requests, and let me know if you find any bugs.
