As for the theme, I'll wait until it's absolutely confirmed before I work on the logo for the box. Still inking the illustration anyway.
Fair. It looks clean and legibility is up. It might just stand out to me because I am so used to 8x8 fonts on the system.tepples wrote:The font is Chicago 12, the iconic UI font of Macintosh System 1 through 7. I chose it because it works at that resolution without antialiasing, about which you complained earlier. For "Press Start Button" in the first two volumes, I used Droid Sans (now called Open Sans).
Also, I uploaded what might be the final version of Waddles to its own topic. I ran through it on the latest multicart (on powerpak, yay) and poked it a bit; everything seems stable. This is probably the last version unless I take the time to get rid of that pesky graphical glitch at level start. I can't stop seeing it now, but I'm having a seriously hard time finding what I'm doing outside vblank/forced blank. (Note: If that improving prior entries contest ever happens, I may tweak Waddles more for that. As it stands though, I need a long break from that codebase)
Tepples - would you be willing to turn off exit patching for Waddles now that I've added the "Exit to Menu" option? (It's actually a menu item now; no weird two-button shortcut)
Probably the last thing before I declare the ROM final is whether to keep "Revenge of the Twins" as the subtitle. Does INL have any QA facility to ensure nothing else is seriously wrong?

IDK if I'd call my little operation a facility, but sure.tepples wrote:Does INL have any QA facility to ensure nothing else is seriously wrong?
I've yet to migrate my action53 mapper implementation over to my 8Mbit+ 3v board version and update erase/program algorithms. I'll do my best to get this wrapped up this week.
Once that's taken care of, and with the rom nearing completion, it'll be time to whip up the first batch of boards.
Haven't heard back on the print quotes if I don't end up doing everything in house, I just pinged the print house again so hopefully can get that ball rolling asap.
If you prefer it, here's a title screen that corresponds with the packaging design:M_Tee wrote:For what it's worth, I like the simplicity of the title screen. However, as I work on the box art, if you'd like me to convert the logo and title from the box to a format suitable for the title screen, I'd be more than willing to.
Because of its white background, I think +/- #10 fades to and from white and black would help the transitions, as shown above.
If you want to use it, the zipfile includes .chr, .pal, and NESst .nam with attribute table. Because the credits text is no longer color #02 against color #00, I just included it in the .chr. Wasn't sure about that.
