I watched it a few days ago. Adobe's sharks are probably out for blood.

I stumbled across this video of a simon's quest revamp, and the pixel art is ridiculous! I remember the towns being so boring and bland looking.

Can anyone with a sharp eye spot if these are accurate to restrictions or not? Looks that way to me, but I only know about tiles and not holistic things like scanlines. They do a very nice fade to black in their tiles which leads to some very impressive tiling. As far as I know it is indeed a hack of the ROM and not some remake in Game Maker.

It's a rom hack, and the video is almost certainly legit, so it does conform to NES restrctions. He used to have another vid of that hack that he took down, but his other vids have neat pixel art as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSKXYbvNxNQ

And a bonus, here's a pirate Pokemon Yellow rom that did an excellent job downscaling graphics to NES restrictions: (music sucks, though) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=8gR5o72M-b4#t=138s

There's a lot of neat NES stuff out there.

I make actual NES games. Thus, I'm the unofficial forum dealer of too much information about the NES

Thanks for those links! Yellow looks really bold and vibrant on the NES, though I guess that's because the GB Pokemons were all very chromatic and used tons of white for their open areas.

The artist for the CVII romhack: http://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Thaddeus

His art is quite good. Glad to see some stunning original art in a community centering on romhacking where there's such a heavy emphasis on editing.

I came home tonight to work on some of my stuff, and my son had this picture up on Graphics Gale.



He's 5 years old and spends day and night playing InFAMOUS 2, and the character is supposed to be Cole's best friend Zeke. For being artwork by a little kid, I was impressed, so I decided to show you all.

Kain: Looks like he's got colour conservation down pat.

Are there any other wacky pixel aspect ratios that pixel art is likely to have been created in?
Code: [Select]
var aspectRatios = {
  "square" : [1, 1],
  "wide" : [2, 1],
  "tall" : [1, 2],
  "cga32k" : [1.667, 1], // 160x200
  "cga64k" : [1, 1.2], // 320x200
  "cga128k" : [1, 2.4], // 640x200
  "hercules" : [1, 1.552], // 720x348
  "ega" : [1, 1.371], // 640x350
  "apple2ehi" : [1, 1.094], // 280x192
  "apple2edblhi" : [1.829, 1], // 560x192
};

I'm sorry, but he's 5 and you let him play Infamous 2 day and night ? ! ? Wow.

Surt: You know that all those (not sure about apple stuff) are still 4:3 in the end. They all have varying degrees or tall or wide pixels.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Yes. Those are the aspect ratio's of the pixels, not the displays, so the images can be displayed in their correct intended proportions.
