a collection of plug-ins for GIMP (the GNU image manipulation program), which provide conversion and export capabilities for MSX screen 2 images and and sprites. Data can be exported into binary files (representations of VRAM tables, e.g. pattern, color and name tables) or into a ROM image for test purposes.

The zip-file only contains executables for Windows (64bit). For linux build from source.
Please visit the project documentation site for details.

You can find the source code on gitlab.

gimp-msx-plugins is released under GPLv3.

I have just released an updated version of the gimp-msx-plugins, but I don't know how to add/replace files on (if that's possible at all)...
If you want to get the latest pre-compiled win64 version of the plug-ins, please follow the download link in the documentation.

Here's a brief overview of the changes in version 0.3.0:

  • * GMII exporter: automatic image scaling & resizing added
  • * GMII exporter: BLOAD headers can now be added using compress & split files option
  • * GMII exporter: Transparency handling improved (alpha channel now supported)
  • * GMII exporter: Background color for ROM image can be defined
  • * palettes adjusted (based on Paul Wratt's HW-MSX palette)

GMII exporter working fine, but Sprite exporter won't work for me.

I'm using a 16x16 PNG image, but nothing happens. No error message, no new files on the dir.

What could be causing the problem? Is there a log file somewhere?

Thanks for reporting this bug. I made a new release (0.3.1), which should fix this issue - see link to binary versions in the documentation or clone/build from source on gitlab.

Let me know, if the problem still persists.

In case someone is using GIMP under Arch Linux, it might be required to install the python2-gimp AUR package as the official GIMP package seems to have dropped the python support...
