GIMP plugin for loading/saving GBTD and GBMB map and tile files

Here's a Gimp plugin I wrote that can load/save GBTD and GBMB files, as well as export to C source. I finally had time to go back and build a Windows binary in addition to the Linux one.

It will do tile de-duplication when exporting to GBMB. 2 bpp only right now, no CGB support.

Feedback is welcome, though I may not  work on it for a while since it meets my needs right now.

This is awesome!. The only bad thing about it is there is no cgb support.  I'll test it later. Thanks a lot!

This is great! The more tools like this the better!

Mills, if you are looking for a tool that can produce gbc maps and tiles. I am working on one now. It is fully functional but has no documentation yet. If you are interested in testing it i would be happy to give you a live demo. http://thegameboys.io/tile-map-editor (auto tile de-duping, individual tile fixer, global color mapping tool, save palettes, save color maps)

I finally tested the plugin, (I had to install last GIMP version for windows, 2.10.12).

It works very well, and I found it very useful to convert images straight to gbm maps and gbr tiles (Opimization worked great).
