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

What I can't unsee is your avatar. I keep looking at it... Just laughing at me. Laughing... Laughing... ...

*looks through some of the early ones* ugh. The data structures joke was funny though and relevant.

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



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

I'll keep quoting myself until someone does this. The only things left are the title screen and script revision.

I don't know if Azkadellia aproves, but if the "S's" are the only things left standing in your way, here's my little revision:



I don't know how much room you have to work with, though. :-\
And I'll leave it at that!

Hi,
I tried to make it fit the original text's size and palette,
and I think it's readable. Hope it helps  :beer:

Thanks, guys. Now I have two titles to work with. If I cannot get the first one to fit, I'll try and work with the second one. :D

I'm editing the titlescreen for Monster Capsule GB and when I was done doing some work on it, I loaded it into Rew and there was some new problem which wasn't there before.



The 'a' was perfectly fine when I did it.  When I did the 'p' though, now the color is off on the lower halves of the a and p.  I haven't touched any palette stuff or anything like that.  Just editing bit-by-bit in TLP.  Can anyone shed some light on my problem as I've been working on this screen for a few days because I keep finding thing to nitpick about.

Thank you in advance.

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.

Okay, I see it better now on this monitor.  Weird. :huh:

Looks like the designation for the color is embedded somewhere within the tile.  Have you been playing around with it?

Maybe I can give it a shot? :crazy:
And I'll leave it at that!

All I did was sort out the tiles TLP, number them and started editing them one-by-one in TLP. 

When I finish a letter, I load it up into Rew and see how it looks.  The a was perfectly fine with it's coloring when I completed it, so then I moved onto the p.  I did the p and wasn't happy with it totally, so I worked the bottom half over again.  When I was alright with how it looked, I loaded it into Rew and then basically from A until the 60, there's that discoloration and I'm clueless as to why/how.

If you are willing to take a look to help me fix this, I would be grateful.  Haven't touched anything else because it's just...annoying me knowing it's not right.

Umm, excuse me Captain Obvious, but this is what graphics are all about. Encoding color information... It is this very "designation for the color" which you are altering all along.

I'm editing the titlescreen for Monster Capsule GB and when I was done doing some work on it, I loaded it into Rew and there was some new problem which wasn't there before.


Your description doesn't match what you did at all... I dug out the original title screen (left) and marked some tiles (right):



Notice how the tiles in the region I outlined in red are getting another palette assigned than the rest of the tiles that make up the word モンスターカプセル. This is evident by the different shade of yellow/brown the red arrow is pointing at. In order for you to employ this seemingly free-to-use space, you will have to find out how the palettes get assigned for the title screen and change the outlined tiles' palette association to the one you want. This is nothing you did "wrong" while overwriting the tiles in Tile Molester, just to clarify.

cYa,

Tauwasser

After reading what you put Tauwasser, I totally see what's going on now.  It's being assigned the palette for the 'press start' box despite that the tiles I'm using only contain the bottoms of the モンスターカプセル.  None of the press start box is actually in those tiles, but it's being assigned its colors.  Ugh.

Thanks Tauwasser and Jedi I really appreciate the help. 

I got me some workin' to do.

Never mind - I was thinking of something else. :( This is not the case.
