This conversion is extremely complicated - more than JPEG, I'd dare to say. Even on the amiga itself, you get wildly different results depending on which software to use. I've tested this a lot, and I think you get the best results by using either ImageFX or Art Department Pro which are also applications designed specifically for that purpose. They both support both scripting and batch processing.

I've never heard about NEC-PC88.
