I don't know, I think there's already enough Japanese culture around us. I don't see any need to add Japanese text to the Pixelation logo nor do I think it's cool.

It sounds like some of you guys didn't get to see Pan's Labyrinth; REMEDY THIS FACT IMMEDIATELY.  This movie is beautiful, powerful, disgusting, and extremely intense!

I saw it the moment it was released to theatres. I agree with every point you made and I'll reiterate mine: very original. It's not based on a book nor a comic but straight out Guillermo Del Torro's imaginitive head with a few exceptions of course. (ie Pan)

Hello there guys

I wanted to ask if any of you know about a good place to post about a game dev project to look for programmers/coders. I was about to post it in the Employment section but then I realized that we're not really looking for additional artists (yet) but for coders. So if any of you know about a good place for this, please, let me know.

Thanks in advance for the help!

PS: I think it's okay if I post it in the Off-topic thread too, but I want to hear input from the community and/or mods first. If this is OK maybe I'll post it here too.

Doubly agreed.

Yes, I haven't seen the Labyrinth of Pan, though I sincerely wish to.

HAH let me know if you find the place.
Coders are so so so impossible to find. Free anyway.

I find searching through people's websites and sending them emails if you think they're capable to be a good way to do things. You might be able to find something at gamedev.net's forums, I don't really know where all the coders hang out ;p

Just an idea I want to get of my rather ample chest.

Graph Pad to Pixelart Program Idea

Purpose/benefits: pixel during blackouts, pixel in antitechno social environments, hard copy backup, pixel over hand sketched guides without needing a tablet or pre-scan, etc.
Requirements: gridded paper, pens/pencils
Input: a scan of a pixelart piece drawn into the grid of a graphpad/grid-paper
Output: a pixel clean, colour clean image file

Desirable characteristics
  • Be insensitive to guide lines
  • Only fill pixels when most of the pixel is covered

Manual Mode
  • Allow user to place overlaid sampling grid ontop of scan (rotate, translate, scale)
  • Select and tweak sampled colours for final palette
  • Adjust sampling filter size
  • Adjust colour tolerance
  • Preview results

Automatic Mode
  • Automatically determine grid allignment and scale using image processing techniques, from grid lines or from pixel boundaries
  • Perhaps locallised grid reallignment to compensate for any paper or print stretching
  • Automatically centre sampling points in grid squares
  • Automatic difference threshold based colour selection

Manual mode would be a piece of piss to implement.
Automatic mode would be more fiddly but still quite practical.

Does anything like this already exist?
