Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

Thank you @dougeff @gauauu @Kasumi With Kasumi's tool i made this rom (i used copyright material but for experimental purposes only). It's a rom with the SNES hen from Harvest Moon.

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

Hi, makechr (the tool i am using), uses a color palette (the nes one) and if i put another color not allowed by the nes palette, i get an error. So far i made a bit of progress because i am repainting the images i borrow but yy still pastes the images with crappy quality (something that doesn't happ...

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

I am using a tool called makechr and it works with 3 and 4 colors images (16x16) but it doesn't work with SNES sprites converted to 4 colors even if i repaint them.

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

@nocash The images show the conversion i did with gimp, the chick image1 is before, chick2 is after and as you can see, the second image has lost quality.

I haven't uploaded the bmp image.

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

Ah yes sorry, here are some examples, the chick image i got from open game art gets "pixelated" a lot. And when i convert the image to 4 colors, yy shows a grey color (5), instead of 4, black (background) and 3. Sorry again if i am making spelling mistakes.

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

Hi!, after doing both techniques, some images lost tons of quality and when i move the 16x16 to yy-chr there is a weird color background and the chr file loses (again), more quality. The only image i could do with no problems is the chicken. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Re: Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit

Thank you! It works like a charm, now the chicken image is 4 colors and 16x16, but at first Gimp didn't allowed me 16x16 for some reason, it moved to 17 or 15 (i found that i can use the padlock icon). Anyway, thank you, you saved me from tons of hours lurking for tutorials, now i can focus on the a...

Problem with borrowed (opensource) graphics, can't edit them

Hello, first i want to apologize for my spelling mistakes (english is not my native language). Second, after months of lurking i finally found the guts to try assembly and since my art skills are far from good (mostly skilled with clay) i found a nice solution for my problem with the art, i went to ...

Re: Tower

Hello! That is the style of game i want to make, a bit like Diablo 1 and 2, maybe with D20 (dungeons and dragons) mechanics and each level made random by the game. Any suggestions to share? (i am a noob). I tried your demo and it would come in handy to show what the items do. Anyway a kick ass game.

Re: Is there a way to mod the NES to somehow support CDS?

Thank you guys for your kind replies. I think a disc conection to the NES could help much to the nes homebrew scenario. Also it could be an extra aid to the flashcards, at least i still have the idea that a regular CD is cheaper than a flashcard. Thank you.

Re: Is there a way to mod the NES to somehow support CDS?

Flashcarts only work with 99,9% of the games, what a shame :lol: Well it can't play chinese bootlegs, Harvest Moon NES and Princess Maker Nes. I didn't own a CD till the 90s. Maybe 94. Funnier, would be to mod a NES to play a vinyl record, and output audio through a added speaker. Or to wire one of...
