    Please use this thread to ask a questions about this tool and do not contact directly with the author!

    What can you do with this tool ?
    - It's meant as a tool to help you make graphical displays such as intro logo's for your scripts.
    - OLED screen dimentions : 128 x 64 pixels.
    - Prepare the imige with this dimentions ( 128 x 64 ) to get better results when you convert it with this tool.

    DOWNLOAD LINK v. 1.2 beta 43:
    1. ZEN Message
    2. ZEN Message


    Step 1. Open the app and either use "Load Image" (this converts any image into pixels you can use to show on the screen,
    be it colored, black 'n' white, even with transparent background), use the "Draw Text"
    (allows you to write text to draw using any font installed in your system) or hand draw whatever you want to have on your screen
    Step 2. Touch up the image as needed (for loaded image and/or drawn text)
    Step 3. Use the export function and choose your options
    Step 4. Write script logic to actually use what was exported

    There are 4 different export types which work on the Zen:
    1. Individual pixels - This generates a list of pixel_oled(x, y, color); for you, this is the simplest method as you can just put "main {" before and "}"
    after to have it draw the pixels one by one... however, this format can take up ALOT of space in your script
    2. Packed 8-bit - This generates a const array with every pixel packed into a value as bits with 8-bits as the value,
    i recommend generating the function here aswell, that function will allow you to just put "main { draw_picture(x, y, inverted); }"
    to have it draw the image for you, this however uses alot of CPU due to the complexity of "unpacking" the data, it's not super
    complex but it loops around and does ALOT of operations, the name of the function depends on the name used in "identifier",
    whatever you put into that box will be added after "draw_"
    3. Packed 16-bit - Same as Packed 8-bit except it's 16-bit instead of 8-bit
    4. Export Excalibur Packed - special export for the app ZEN Scripter .

    Changes in v. 1.2 - Beta 43
    - Added custom export for Excaliburs ZEN Scripter
    - Support for generating more optimized versions of the packed format function (it drastically drops the number of operations required to render a large image)
    - Added multiple pen shapes (Square, Ellipse, Cross, Vertical line, Horizontal line)
    - Added a new tool to import packed data from a const array back into editable data.


    Changes in this version from 1.2-beta.18:
    - Added support for saving and loading files with the exact pixel data, these files are named .zmsp and can be used to save your progress or share your designs with others
    - Threshold now uses decimals aswell, not full integers
    - Added sliders for the threshold option
    - Added support for using HSL brightness instead of the average of the RGB for a pixel when converting images (and text)
    - Added support for choosing the resize mode used so you gain better control of the result of resizing an image to fit the screen or resizing the text when drawing text
