New project, inspired by one of the suggestions in the hack ideas thread.



I decided to skip the "A" in the title even though the correct title indeed is "A clockwork orange", I couldn't make it look good and looking at reference material a lot of designs (t-shirts, posters) seem to omit the A so I believe that's fine. There's one or two pixels that need some cleanup and I might add some additional text to it (push start or credits) but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

I remember this being mentioned, but what game is it a hack of?

It's River City Ransom (NES).
I'm planning on this to be a fairly extensive hack (music would obviously have to be a big part of the hack) and since I'm a pretty crap hacker I'll probably going to need help with this. I'll set up a project page once I have more stuff to show off beside the title.

Chttp://www.romhacking.net/translations/191/    Can anyone change the Title screen of Motocross Champion to read Excitebike 2 or know anyone who can alter my copy?

Here's a thing I'm working on...



It's based on the work I did for the AjDen title localization patch.
Still needs to be refined some.
Any critique would be appreciated.

^Cool, I really like the castle art. Maybe try to make the subtitle more visible with a brighter red or the cyan color?



Would like to get people's thoughts on the crown artwork here. I'll probably go for a MM4/5 style title screen in terms of the layout.

It's based on this manual art (called "the gold crown" there) and the in-game sprites.

It looks like a pumpkin :P.

I would indent the top of the crown more, maybe change the outside so it comes down more.  Also, wasn't the base of the crown red?
The great achievement is to lose one's reason for no reason, and to let my lady know that if I can do this without cause, what should I do if there were cause?

It's looking neat! :o
Is that for the Japanese game or the USA one?

I still never regret coming to this or the screenshot thread--some are more WIP than others, but I don't think I've seen something posted that wasn't pretty good in one way or another.

Right now I'm doing it on the US REVA.
But if possible I'll do patches for the FC & FDS versions as well.
I'll probably also use a variation of it for a hack I want to revisit.
I mentioned in the thread about the unknown CV hacks that I had a much more advanced version of my CV Extreme hack done that was lost in an HDD crash.
Well, since I still at least have the stage layout drawn out partially and I have a clear memory of the graphics, I'm going to try to recreate it and finish the whole game.

lol, well I guess you're right. Looking at some crown sprites and actual crowns I think I'm gonna go for something like this instead:

Spoiler:

The base of the crown is red in one place and yellow with a red outline in another, but I don't think the sprite on the slab makes much sense or looks very good.

Looks great! I personally prefer the cleaner logo but it's a matter of taste.

@Vanya
Castle looks really good!
The logo I find the text a bit small in comparison to the background, like in the original logo the text fills out the background more, almost completely. One suggestion I think could look really cool is to maybe use the type of curved background (as seen in the simons quest logo) combined with your text thus reducing some of the blank space.

@PresidentLeever
Really good looking crown! Nice clean shading. Definitively works better then the first.

Those letters are way too thin and small on that CV logo, Vanya. Firstly, there's strong hue contrast in the logo to begin with,  but when you thinned the main logo out, it causes the red space to become rather overpowering. Even more so when you continued to weaken the green with spots of black and blue through it.

If you're insisting on redesigning the typeface from scratch, I'd suggest going all the way and redesigning the C as well, and rethinking the palette.
