Anyone willing to do a title screen for Monty on the Run? Just one logo all in english and no japanese. I would like to pay homage to original Monty game for C64.

Looks good :)

It looks like the title screen will be the most difficult part to hack, but nothing's gonna stop me from hacking that sucker.

As this is hopefully down to the last few hacks, I thought I'd ask if anybody wants to try this one:


Just to show that the crest in the background is a sprite, and not part of the tile data. The background, however, is part of the data (though the title initially shows blue against a black background, before it switches in the background palette).
I'm thinking a little title "Deep Dungeon II" and "The Hero's Crest" in big writing below?
Thanks.

What's left to do, I think, is to work on the proper ending, as well as fixing up the option to import a Deep Dungeon 1 save.
(I may need to do that separately. AFAIK, no emulator will allow me to swap games without auto-resetting.
So, I'd need to paste DD1 as a second disk to DD2 (a fake two-disk game) and hack that. Then merge the edited DD2 program file back into the main hack.
Hopefully, it's just tediously adjusting a few pointers.)

Just in case, in the title screen, the game is just called "The Hero's Crest".
It's only on the game's box that you see the subtitle "Deep Dungeon". There's no "2" anywhere.

I figure since III and IV are numbered, it's better to be consistent. :)
(well, III is numbered on the box/cart)
The MSX version is also numbered.


Huh. I guess they do give equal emphasis to both parts of the title.

I know it says "Nadia" twice - I've still yet to do "The Secret of Blue Water" part.

I think the "D" still needs some more work. :-\

I'm going for the same look here:



Edit: Fixed the "D," the spacing, & "N" now touches the ground like the rest of the letters

Someone wanna make me a fancy, archaic subtitle for ActRaiser 2?



It says "The Crusade for Silence".
Anyone willing to do this yet? >_>

Wasn't there a couple a few pages back?
The Crufade for Silence. ;)

I've taken it upon myself to design a DD2 title screen.


Luckily, dropping the title onto the original logo was pretty easy.
I just had to fix up the tilemap to replace the tiles used for the pseudo-random background.

I would separate the "PUSHSTART."

Maybe. :/

That was in the original.
I'll check into that (the background part makes it kind of annoying to edit).

It doesn't look that bad though.

And I'm a bit of a purist, so I'd probably leave it.

Finally finished the rest of the title (after a minor setback with Tile Molester totally molesting my graphics. >:():

Nice titlescreen.

I have a question. Is that animal a dog, cat or what?

It's a lion cub named King. It's Nadia's pet.

...Why does it look like a science experiment to cross a cat and dog?

Same reason Nadia’s nose is decidedly situated towards the right side of her face? HAA NOW YOU CAN’T UNSEE IT.

That's just perspective. The only way it'd hit "cannot unsee" status is if the shot of her face was straight on rather than an angled shot.
