New title screen courtesy of a friend and friend of a friend. Hacking this in was very easy just need to tweak a few things then perfect.

No offense to the artist, but that's no good man :P
The a's, e's and o's are drawn different from one another.
Some letters are higher, lower or bigger compared to the rest.
Some of the yellow has spilled outside of the letters.

Here's, what I believe, is a much better title screen. If you do decide to use mine, you don't have to credit me. I don't care about that, just don't use the one you already have!

The right one looks better to me.  Adds more character to the letters.
'We have to find some way to incorporate the general civilians in the plot.'

'We'll kill off children in the Juuban district with an infection where they cough up blood and are found hanging themselves from cherry blossom trees.'

The right one is oddly more readable, especially for the more distant letters.

It kind of bothers me that the first four letters appear to use a different perspective line than the rest. Either way, the one on the right, no question.

Might as well drop this here, come to think of it.

Yeppers. More VRAM to play with, for one.

Just FYI, that's the SNES version's logo, gussied up with judicious application of Photoshop filters.

Squee! I'm glad you decided to do the GBA version instead. It's a lot better than the SNES version, let me tell you. This title screen looks very nice and colorful, unlike the US version's bland title. :P

I know it's not really the right place to post this but I think this is the place that the most "artists" visit often and I am not in a hurry to get this done.

I am searching an artist that want to design a new title screen for the 4° CD of Final Fantasy 7 International (this is the on game screen):


and here it's the original converted from tim to BMP (512x240@8bits):


For those who can't read japanese, it say "Perfect guide" under Final Fantasy.

Send me a message if u are interested. Thanks

It could be worse. 4 left the US title in raw Japanese, down to the 100% empty white background unfitting with the rest of the series. :banghead:

Couldn't find a previous romhack/translation for Asmik-Kun World II for Gameboy. Probably because the only Japanese in the game was in the title. I decided to go with the same style and title as the original Asmik-Kun World's official release "Boomer's Adventure in ASMIK World". Here's the result.

Before:


After:


Here's the original game's title screen for font comparison. I tried to stick with the same font style as the original, within the games constraints.



Just looking for some constructive criticism. I'm a long time lurker, this is my first contribution, albeit a small one.

Been on a Gameboy kick and decided to spruce up Gameboy Wars Turbo's title screen. It had a lot of open space, and I just wanted to jazz it up.

I'm currently trying to contact TransBRC at their old contact email to get the okay for me to release an update with the title screen edit. I had to use the wayback machine to find the site, which has been dead since 2008, and not updated since 1999. So if anybody knows how I can get in contact with TransBRC to ask about a possible update patch, please PM me.

It was kind of hard to fit, because a decent amount of tiles were recycled.

I would never have known that title screen was fan-made. Good job!

I can't find anything I can tell you about the Gameboy Wars one, though. It feels a little off, but I can't pinpoint what. Besides the TRANSBRC looking like a bunch of gibberish, that is. Hmm, maybe it's the thickness of the letters, or in this case, lack of. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be that thin precisely because of the limited space... Maybe making "Y" a little thinner to match the rest of the font? Hmm... That may not be a good fix... It's that "O" staring at me... It feels like that O is the biggest culprit.

I don't know, hopefully someone else here can give you better criticism on your GameBoy Wars titlescreen.
Who will quote me next?

Okay, I took your suggestions and tweaked the title screen a bit. I made the "AMEBOY" and "ARS" a bit less rounded, the letter Y one pixel thinner, the O the same size as the others(I was trying to make it look like a reticle originally), and I made two options for the TRANSBRC logo.

This has the "Trans BRC Presents:" shading brightened up and the black box eliminated. I think it makes it a bit less gibberish looking.


This is the same one with a larger "TRANS BRC" logo.

Personally, I never really liked incorporating group names and other misc stuff directly on the title screen. If anything, there's room enough for another line on the bottom where the credits can go.
