Post by: mkwong98 on July 19, 2018, 11:57:53 am
Hi, I made a graphics pack for playing Donkey Kong on Mesen emulator:

I made this tool to make it:

Wow, it looks beautiful!

I wish there were support for this in MAME.

good work, its amazing what difference graphics can make

there is a Castlevania HD pack that also changes the music to HD, aswell theres a Castlevania pack that simply changes the graphics to 16-bit and is smaller and more subtle
there should be some forum dedicated to these kinds of packs

Very awesome! The tool looks to be really useful too, I haven't had the chance to use it much but hopefully will be able to soon. Great work! :)

Great work, congratulations.

But do you think about making a "Donkey Kong Original Edition" version (with an extra stage like the arcade)?

I can make one, but that will have to wait as I don't have much free time at the moment.

If I were to go for a consistent art direction, I'd draw the characters in the Yoichi Kotabe style.

An excellent suggestion. I'm not gonna disparage the effort, because it's more than I could put together from scratch, but having a 3D style Donkey Kong, standard style Pauline and Paper Mario all together just clashes too much for my taste. If you want something cleaner looking it definitely scratches the itch, but the mismatched style is just a bit too much for me.

Sadly my drawing skill is lacking. I do encourage people to make changes to the graphics, simply edit the png files in the pack and it should work.

Hello

I really want your HD package making tool, because actually I also like making some different sprites and scenes, but you know, the PNG pictures stored in the mesen simulator are too messy. I need them to be neat, which will facilitate my work

But the Google download address, I can't open it...

Is there any other address you can download? For example, on this site

thank you very much
