See more conversion options in preview in OS X 10.8

Lets say you have a file (image.png) and you want to convert it to a BMP for whatever reason. It seems in OS X 10.8 you can still do this, but the options are a bit hidden.

This link gives the hint to do this. Within preview you need to hold the “option” key first so you can choose “save as”. After that you still need to hold the option key when you use the ‘format’ dropdown so you can select the BMP format. If you don’t do this, you will not see the BMP format.

Slick 64 bit and Linux

Recently I wanted to run Slick on linux in a 64 bits environment. I got it working on Windows a while ago but I forgot to include natives for Linux and Mac OS X.

To get it working on Linux I simply redid the steps I did back then. I’ve tested the results on Linux and also on Windows, with success!

If you are interested, then you can grab the natives here; and the JARs from here.

(or just simply clone dune2themaker4j and get it all in one go)
