This is an application that I created to convert images to monospace pixel strings for Space Engineers.
If you modify this, please credit me :)
This is my first windows app, and I spent a lot of time on this. I hope y'all enjoy!
This code utilizes a variety of dithering methods to convert each pixel from a 24 bit color into a 9 bit color. By reducing the number of colors in an image, we can use the color pixels in the Monospace font in Space Engineers to "draw" the image on a text panel without the need for mods.
How to use
