Re: Tiles pixels 2x, 4x (or more) - HD remaking of NES games

It means that a version of MegaMan in a emulator that works like HiSMS would be a little bit boring to make... Every single animation frame would have to be done a dozen times or more. Yep. But I still would do it if someone releases something like a "HiNES". :) How dows HiSMS work when the sprite ...

Apparently yes.
I'm already facing this problem (Alex Kidd logo starts to blink after a few seconds -- and it suddenly goes back to the original 8-bit form when it happens).

Very good work! Did you draw the sprites yourself? I tried HiSMS, but I believe the interface could be better. Thank you! :) Yes, I'm drawing everything. The logo was heavily inspired from "Complete Album" cover ( http://www.jap-sai.com/Games/Alex_Kidd_Miracle_World/Alex_Kidd_Complete_Album_CD_A.jp...

Re: Tiles pixels 2x, 4x (or more) - HD remaking of NES games

The latest versions of My NES no longer supports it unfortunately, and may never come back! There should be a better way than doing it in a double-pixeled bitmap mode anyways. Oh, sad news :( I had never heard about HiSMS until reading this topic. I'm enjoying a lot to change Sega Master System gra...

Re: Tiles pixels 2x, 4x (or more) - HD remaking of NES games

There is an emulator able to replace graphics in NES games. It's called "MyNES" ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/mynes/files/ ) I wanted to use this "HiRes" feature desperately but it was too hard to me and I never tried again... :( There are pictures of some experiments with a 'Dragon Ball Z' game...

I'm still playing with NES image converter every day (see results on http://mcbremakes.blogspot.com.br/ ) - and I'd love to be able to make slideshows like this. :D The Predator and Superman ones look nice.

Re:

Good job. On hardware (PowerPak), there are artifacts to the left and right of the top half of the picture, as if the nametable isn't getting completely cleared. But I'd advise against using the emphasis bits for anything important. They screw up on PlayChoice, Famicom Titler, and some famiclones. ...

I'm still having a lot of fun with this program.
I even started a blog with title screen remakes of classic games (all created with NES Image Converter): http://mcbremakes.blogspot.com/

Thanks again for this wonderful software!
