a 'sprite' is technically an entity of 16x16 (it's not 8, right?) pixels with 3 colours + transparency.
Actually, it's either 8x8 or 8x16. Awkward, if you ask me, but that's what i see everywhere and that is confirmed by this technical programming reference. So ...

Btw, that document also explains that, despites tiles (on bg) are 8x8, you can only assign a palette to a 16x16 (a SMB block) or 32x32 meta-tile (a SMB pipe) ...

Ah. So even though you can mix 8x8 tiles however you want, you have to restrain them to a 16x16 area where they share the pallette, right?

Jad: Indeed. Also ALL sprites have to be 8x8 or 8x16. You can not mix.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Hrm. X actually has a buster attack that looks like he`s just punching. I assume that Xion is basing his version more on X than the original. Really like the way that little dude shakes it....keep it up
JUST punching is a bit much. He does freeze momentarily after each shot. I quite like those animations, actually, the X series has been a huge inspiration for me over the years. Heh, it actually does look like he sort of flings those charged shots away...


The stuff legends are made from!

which surprisingly show how much the design of a character is influenced by the game perspective ... in top-down, recognizable features of MM and the Met merge into blue and yellow blobs, respectively ... or maybe this is something that could be fixed with a new mixture of highlights/shadows/etc ?

WRONG.

There's this MMC5 thing, which allows you extra RAM, which allows assigning palettes to 8x8 blocks. It also allows you some other things.
