Scrolling text demo

Post by Vectrex2809 » Tue Aug 22, 2017 5:21 pm

So I've been programming my next title, REKT, and I decided to make a little scrolling text screen with a few raster effects on it for the game to show credits, scores, etc. when you stay on the title screen for too long. After finishing it, I feel like it looks pretty cool (especially on a real NES running on a CRT) so I thought I'd share the ROM with you :)

Let me know what you think of it!

I like the colours, art style, and the effect! The sine wave movement of the top bar is smooth enough, but the erratic lower bar movement is a bit jarring. Perhaps you could use a different table to make it "butter-smooth"?

For a true water reflection, we'd need wavy X scrolling effects :)

I wish someone would do a real rom version of this:

It's much funnier than scrolling text, no offense! :)

That doesn't sound much like an NES, but this does: What Is Love.nsf

Wow, that sounds almost as good as the original, beyond expectations! Good work.
