I think the first one matches the attitude of the game a little better, as well as it being similar to other title screens of NES games that were also fairly simple (Ice Climbers, Duck Hunt, Nuts & Milk, Balloon Fight, etc.).

The second one is really cool though! But personally I think it would better fit for a game with more story/attention to a main character. The first one reflects more neutrally, but also has a hint of the actual gameplay.

I like the second one. I thought the xbox bomberman boxart was hilarious. I have to look up the US NES boxart yet.

It's this image, cropped. (This is from the manual.)


I agree that the first screen more matches the era and gameplay style, but I'm hoping that my graphical changes bring the second title, the boxart, and the game all together.

So while playing Pony Poki Panic, I felt the title screen is edited, well not very well.  Which is a shame since the rest of the edits are great.



Anyone want to make the title look better? Actually have the title saying:
PONY
POKI PANIC

Also, instead of the 2, a horseshoe might be a better replacement.

I will check with Herooftime1000 to make sure he/she is happy about putting an up to date image in the hack.

Here's a mock up of the updated title screen for my Baseball Simulator hack:


I double checked and I've got a few tiles to spare, I think. Just a matter of plugging them in to the hex.

Perfect. I wasn't expecting the tile edits. :)

Now let me go and insert it. I'll have to figure out how to get the some tiles to use a different palette set.

Godzilla anyone? I'm not even sure if there is an official English logo for Godzilla, but I'd like the title screen to look like one of these logos. The US game used the logo from one of the older movies, but I don't want that one. No need to add the subtitle, just plain ol' Godzilla.

It looks nice, but I'm not sure the NES can handle the color gradient. I never bothered to learn the specifics so I don't know off the top of my head. Either way I'll have a crack at inserting it, but at the very least I can display the red outline with the bluish-grey inside.

It should be fine i used the colours from the godzilla graphic so jnless the title cannot share the same palette then should be all ok :)

I got bored today and made a 10-minute mockup/edit of the Super Mario Bros. title screen thanks to the Peach and Daisy mod.


Any thoughts? Keep in mind, I don't think I'm actually going to do anything with this mockup.

Not bad at all, but I would use the term Sis. (in comparison with Bros.)

Based on the official US logos (see this and this) but with the game's logo coloring.

Noting that the text is skewed a bit to the left and will be moved right in the final version.

I just played that hack! That TS is what the hack lacked. And under 10 minutes? You sure know your SMB tiles!  :-*
I hope we can contact its hacker, Kishi, so he could add that TS.

Looks quite good, but the S of Jojo's seems a little bit off (in the official version all the characters are behind the subtitle, just the skewed s is over it, maybe you should do the same to make it look better, otherwise making it straigt should also do the job) and the subtitle "Bizarre Adventure" would probably look better with thinner white borders.

It ain't bad, but it looks a tad too jagged in spots compared to the smoothness of the logo.
