Okay...people over at YTMND are being quiet about this, but I really gotta know, how the hell do they make images look like NES graphics?! Here is an example...

Image

I highly doubt there was ever A night at the Roxbury ever made for NES...

Image

And then theres that, I don't recall that pic of Savage ever being in a game, thanks in advance for whoever can tell me this method...

I think people are just tracing over the original image with a basic paint program to give it that distinctive NES look.

These would be EXCELLENT candidates for making into future demos. Wonder if the music for the Roxbury one already exists as an NSF?

I don't see anything on 2a03.org, but it wouldn't be too hard to make a cover of "What Is Love?" by Haddaway using NT2 or Famitracker.

Although the colors in the first image could belong to a NES image, you wouldn't be able to move them like this. I can't think of a way. You know, these big parts moving around coudn't be made of sprites, and the NES has only one background plane, wich is slow to redraw.

Maybe some of the movement could be done by drawing different frames of the animation to each name table, using some palette tricks, and use sprites to animate smaller parts. But even then it woudn't move as much as in that image.

Use VROM bankswitching to shift it around.

Even if you did this, the heads wouldn't match exactly the 16x16 grid of attributes, and the bodies. At least part of the heads will have to be sprites. Anyway, it is not simple to make that.

I just made an NT2 cover of a representative 45 seconds of "What Is Love", but I need to know who wrote/published the song so that I can fill in the NSF's "copyright" field properly. Google "what is love" "written by" doesn't show anything definite.

That's the singer, not sure about whether he composed it or not.

That uses the DMC channel, right? I thought I heard a snare, and it sounded too real for NES sound. Am I right?

Yes, it uses DMC kick and snare.
