This demo is useful as a program for game makers who want to create 1-bit games, it converts any image(s) and there frames/movements with any size, into 1-Bit black and white styled pixel art.

Also helpful for anyone in pixel art tournaments who wants to cheat a lil' and use regular pixel art and convert it through this.

Please read the Instructions and Copyrights folder inside the Download. dont mess with any of the code, cause its very fragile, and near perfect.

You can edit how dark you want it or light by changing the input on the converter, default is 100%, but the lower you go the more white comes out, and the higher the more dark.

This demo was made by me Menzu Namiaru(Bakasensei), and MasterDan.


You can now turn dithering on or off, which gives the icon a hand drawn feel, which no other 1-bit converter(i've seen) has done.

It now supports 3-bit, with Black, Dark Grey, Light Grey, and White. You can also activate dithering with this.
