Hell's Bells anyone?

Already done.

While I'm at it, I might as well show off something a friend of a friend did.



Still needs the colors to be changed so they match the palette though.

Technically not the actual title screen, but an ending logo. Although this is what the title screen will look like once hacked.

That seems pretty empty. *Constructive Criticism Only* Err.. let me rephrase that: I think more graphics would be good for a title screen. A bigger logo with less alias would look good, too.

cYa,

I suppose we'll have to wait and see what it looks like when the actual title screen is hacked. But I'd guess it wouldn't so empty on the actual title screen. Assuming this is Hi no Tori, I'd guess you'd have the Konami logo and copyright text to fill space? :)
Is it still going to be in that big green scroll?

I will agree that the logo could be a tad bigger, but not by much. I'm limited in my number of tiles available and also the graphic has to be recompressed and needs to fit into the original space. Anyway, I've mostly hacked the title screen, but  there's a very obvious issue left.

If you can, I think it'd be better to remove the empty space towards the bottom of the scroll and move the copyright text up and/or center the logo a bit.

Heh, when I hacked in the graphic, I accidently made the scroll one tile longer in height. I also moved the graphic down a bit. So it shouldn't look too empty.

I think if you've got the tiles for it, you should make the "Gao's Adventure" part bigger. Or at least bold it, so it stands out a bit more.

People make title screens here? :)

Could someone make one that reads "Super Chinese", preferably in the same style and size as the Katakana?

Anyone willing to do some magic with "Ninja Rahoi!"? Somehow, I'm out of constructive ideas for this one  :(

Given the fact that the ら is hiragana and the ホイ is katakana, I'd say it's "Ninjas Hoi! (whatever "hoi" means. I think it's an onomatopoeia)".

It's Ninja Rahoi :) That's one of the characters in the game and the pun "Ninjara", but I can't transfer it to English. :) But frankly speaking - I've been considering to call it "Ninja's Tale" to avoid any misreadings. So it's either "Ninja Rahoi" or "Ninja's Tale" for the title screen...
PS: However, giving it a second thought.. It could be "Hey, Ninjas!" or "Hoi, Ninjas!"
"ホイ" is generally translated as "Hey" or an exclamation like that...
So. now I'm unsure about the title - great...

Any noun with ら after it is plural. It's a less polite version of たち. You'll often hear it as from a villain or something in anime: きさまら!

And I've never heard of ホイ as being "Hey!". It's usually おい。But it's close, so it could be similar.
