Autotile packing tools is a set of tools for working with autotile-based image formats on Windows. They can be used by drag-and-drop of source file(s) onto the corresponding tool, or by using a shell (such as cmd.exe or powershell on Windows).
unpack-minitile-a2.cmd- takes an RPGMaker-style autotile image (e.g., "A2" format) with 8px minitiles, and "unpacks" them to 16px tiles, for use in alternative tilemap editing software (such as tiled).
pack-minitile-a2.cmd - the reverse of "unpack-minitile-a2.exe" - takes an image consisting of 16px tiles, and packs them into the minitile format.
scale2x.cmd, scale3x.cmd - increases the size of the input image by 2x or 3x for use in rpgmaker VX and MV respectively.
scale0.5x.cmd - shrinks the dimensions of the input image, by 50%. Useful if you only have upscaled VX tiles and need to shrink it prior to unpacking
unpack-minitile-a2-gms16.cmd - takes an RPGMaker-style autotile image (e.g., "A2" format) with 8px minitiles, unpacking them into 16px tiles layout that is easier to import into GameMaker Studio 2 - each autotile cell is unpacked into a row of 16 tiles. An additional blank row is inserted at the beginning, as GM does not allow you to use the first cell of the tilesheet, and the last column is left blank as RPG Maker's "autotile" cell does not include enough metadata to construct a "filled outer tile".
unpack-minitile-a3.cmd, unpack-minitile-a3-gms16.cmd - Similar to the "A2" versions, but can unpack "A3" autotile layouts. The -gms16 version exports to a layout that's easier for gamemaker to import.
unpack-minitile-a4.cmd, unpack-minitile-a4-gms16.cmd - Similar to the "A2" versions, but can unpack "A4" autotile layouts. The -gms16 version exports to a layout that's easier for gamemaker to import.
minitile.exe - the compiled "command line" program that does all the work. This file must be next to the .cmd files in order to work.
Input files are left untouched, and the tool outputs files with a suffix, for example, _packed.png, _expanded.png, or _2x.png, etc
