This tool allows the compilation and decompilation of image files to SpringRTS's binary SMF (Spring Map Format) map format.
To use the tool, launch pymapconv.py or start pymapconv.exe
2019 UPDATE: Windows EXE available, pymapconv.exe works as long as nvdxt.exe is next to it :)
The windows build is 64 bit, thus allowing the compilation of maps up 64x64 size!
Outdated: Under Windows, you will need the following to make this work:
Dowload the precompiled version from here https://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=34378&start=20
Python 2.7, 32bit - https://www.python.org/downloads/
PIL (Python Image Library) -http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/
PyQt4 - https://riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt/download (note: PyQt no longer provides Windows binaries, but you can obtain slightly old and suitable ones from https://sourceforge.net/projects/pyqt/files/PyQt4/PyQt-4.11.4/)
Under Linux (e.g. Ubuntu 14.04 and up), it requires:
Python 2.7 Pillow (sudo pip install Pillow) PyQt4 (sudo apt-get install python-Qt4) ImageMagick (sudo apt-get install imagemagick)
