So, Rodimus, I've got a bit of a roadblock here...
Here's the problem.
The FFIVJ Title screen we know and love:
Really only has the bluish tint to it because of the layering effect that I don't know how to reproduce.
What you're seeing in that image is actually this:
(a transparent version of the same image I posted above)
Layered on top
I unfortunately don't even know where to begin learning how that layering actually works, and it doesn't seem that anyone over on the slick board has any insight either.
So unless the situation changes, concessions will have to be made on this one for now.
As an experiment, I tried using the bottom layer's palette instead of the top layer's palette in the prototype (also took out the subtitle):
I don't know if you think that's any better... I kind of like that, but I like it because it is visually distinct from Easy Type, and not necessarily because it is any closer to the original.
