It looks definitely more legible to me!! Maybe a titlescreen mockup shows if the size is good of not :D

The game is Megami Tensei for the MSX.
I did a mockup of a title screen graphic in English:

The original Japanese graphic:


Is it fine, or should I revise it?

Maybe a little. the T is definitely too narrow.

The Japanese has randomly shrunken kana (ジ and ビ) in it. It’d be good to mirror that.

I really don't like the T and R very much...

The thing is, it kinda looks odd in itself with the border around the letters. The original Japanese had wider characters, so the border didn't make the whole thing look too blurry... Yours just emphasizes this with varying widths in some characters.

cYa,

That looked really cool. The R looks awesome, but I wasn't sure what the a was.

Barver battle saga title. ATM I think the title we're going to be using is Brave Battle Saga - Legend of the Magic Warrior. Anybody up for this task? :) The clouds within the huge Chinese characters scroll in the back so there's no need to include that in whatever you make that will go there, just draw the outline.

I'm curious what someone's idea would be for how that title may look :)

any thoughts on this?

(the cloud background would replace the solid blue btw)
i kinda like keeping the chinese characters for "magic warrior" there but that's your call. oh and i totally forgot about the barver/brave battle saga thing, i'll get on that. ahem.

Whoa, that's awesome! Good job!

Could you make text for the grey Chinese text also btw? Djinn hasn't actually mentioned it but I'm pretty sure its his intention to have that replaced too. Left and right respectively are Start and Continue.

Really, it's exceeded my expectations so far ;)

glad you like it :D its been a while since i've done a title screen.

as for the start/continue text, how's this -


edit: btw i notice the "barver battle saga" text has an animated glow on it, i dunno if its done in hardware or if i'd have to edit every frame - i'm guessing the latter though

Really well done. :)
You don´t have a high-res version of the title by any chance? I will be responsible for the box design, so I would like to use the same title for it. If you don´t I´ll just have to redraw it.^^

@Steve
BTW, could you send me any screenies with the characters/portraits or so?

nah i don't sorry, i created it at the display resolution, but i could probably do a high res version if you want seeing as i have the fonts and stuff.

Djinn will have to confirm about the glow effect, but I'm sure it's hardware and not anything you need to worry about :)

Speaking of which I need to direct his attention over here!

I like the title very much, good job! :)
And for glowing, yes it is just palette animation.

ah good to know. and im glad you like it!

 i should have known it was a palette thing really.. i've been out of the game too long. or something.

anyway update version: basically just switched the letters, fixed up the glow and shifted "battle" four pixels to the left
