Hello guys,

This can be the begining for new developpment opportunities for the MSX.
I wrote a little program tha can convert any image found on the web (JPEG) to the MSX2 Screen in a second with the GR8NET Cartridge.

The program is donwloadable from here : http://msx.ebsoft.fr/gr8net/SCRCONV.BAS

Run it with a GR8NET, and enter the image URL you want to see on your MSX screen as requested.
In a second the image will be catch and display on your screen !

The proof here in video :


How it works ?
I'm doing remote data processing.
Base on the screen conversor by Rafael Jannone, i wrote a little web application that catch the image the MSX is requesting, it resize it, and convert it into screen8.
Then the MSX2 download this new image from my web server.

That's all ... Simple !! ;)

This is also what fudebrowser does, but it gets html+images to screen 2 instead of screen 8.

What dithering method it using?
Or else: planing in future, give some option keys for converting? Smile
If it only show image, why you not using interlace mode?
