Hi, this is a door of a church I'm doing for my game, at the end but I'm using a color plus for each box of 16 x 16, if I understand correctly that the NES can only use 3 colors plus black but I 1 color used more, sorry.

:roll:

Your picture actually use 6 colors, and they are too many shades of brown, so it is more suitable for SNES or MD than for NES.

It's not 3 colors+black. It's 3 colors+another color.

The NES has 4 palettes that can be on screen at a time for backgrounds.

Each 16x16 part of the background can use only one palette.

Each palette has four color entries. 3 color entries in each palette can be unique. The fourth color has to be the same in all 4 palettes.

So

1. (Brown)
2. Green
3. Light Green
4. Blue

1. (Brown)
2. Light Brown
3. White
4. Red

1. (Brown)
2. Beige
3. Purple
4. Orange

1. (Brown)
2. Blue
3. Light Blue
4. White

Is a valid set of palettes. Brown is the color that is the same in all four. If I changed it, to say... black in one palette it would change it to black in all the palettes.

As well, you can't use any color. You have to use colors from a specific set: http://bisqwit.iki.fi/utils/nespalette.php Unless you use color emphasis, all your colors must be from the top four rows there.

The art itself is really, really nice. Sadly, as pointed before, you have to use a specific palette, as well as follow the color limitations.

Also, the actual palette differs a bit on different TVs and even on emulators.

By the way (I hope you won't object), here is a quick view of how the same image could look if following the color requirements -- the modification is minimal:

(Note: I ripped my palette from FCEUX, and that was probably a horrible decision)

I see, you have eliminated two colors if I remember correctly, had been well but I slowly stand back from the constraints of NES and now I'm skipping some limitations , thanks. :oops:

Well, it COULD be possible with using those colors by using another color palette as "layers", but it get's difficult...

Don't know how to explain it, but this (BEAUTIFUL) link could show it. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9461&hilit=zelda+SNES

Quite nice looking door. A bit too noisy for my taste though. Too much dither and single pixels.

Also I just did a check in my graphic program. The size is not a multiple of 8 (should be 96 pixels high instead of 92). And it also is 169 tiles, which is a bit excessive.
