Utility to allow the editing (in your favourite paint program) of CFS and FS2000 Extended Format Bitmaps without losing the extra data. Replacement program for CFSBmp with new features

Enhanced editing of Palette Transparency Data. Load and save transparency maps.

Supports all FS2000 Bitmap variations 8/16/32 bit .

Optional smoothing of Auto-created SubImages

Batch conversion of multiple images

Problem-free Creation of replacement Ground textures by merging or importing new images

Will also create Extended Format Bitmaps from normal Bitmaps. Will load and scale images in any format supported by mwgfx.dll

The maximum size supported by Bmp2000 is 512x512. The creation of larger (1024x1024 and 2048x2048) Extended bitmaps and the creation of non-square Extended bitmaps can be done with BmpExt.

This Program requires at least mwgfx.dll 4.00.99 to Function. If you already have one of my Programs installed then you may already have it (but Check here for the Latest Version). Extra Formats are available with the Full DLL Set
