Projects / PPM


PPM is yet another Game Boy (Color) tile and map editor that uses GTK. It supports many export formats (raw binary, GBDK .c, ISAS .asm, TASM .asm, WLA .asm, and RGBDS .asm), and has different Game Boy Color color emulation modes. It can also import GBTD and GBMB (popular tile and map editors for Windows) files. All mouse buttons draw, and there are loads of keyboard shortcuts. It can also optionally emulate the Game Boy's display.
