Haven't actually gotten this hack working yet, but this is the intended design.

I was bored, so I put together this title screen hack for Makai Mura (a.k.a. Ghosts & Goblins).  I'm also thinking of cleaning up the "Engrish" in the game as well.  (Yes, I know it's been done before... just not by me.)

That title screen is basically unreadable. You're gonna need another color in there so that "Village" is readable with the current design.

Thank you for the input, Pennywise.  After taking your advice, I came with two three alternative designs for the intro screen.  One has the original design in the middle removed, leaving the text colors in the title screen as is.  The other has the title screen design still intact, but the text in the title screen changed from blue to black.  The third design removes the red graphic entirely, leaving only the text which is colored red.

Which one looks better?

The first one.

You should try a more custom font like this:

Oh, wow!  That looks good!

But, yes, I need to come up with something more original.  I'll work on that later today.  Thank you for the advice.  :)

So far, I came up with two more designs, both being a bit more "original".  Any opinions?  (I'm leaning toward the latter, though, but some people here might have other opinions/suggestions.)

After thinking about it for a day, I went with the second "original" design I came up with for the Makai-Mura title screen. 

How does it look?  Looks good?  Eye cancer?  Don't care?  Could be better?  Please let me know.

Made this for the Survival Kids 2 translation patch. Hopefully it's not too hard to implement:



It was really tough to keep the red text readable. Hopefully I succeeded.

Looks great.

No, I can read it just fine. Accurate! Good job!

Just a quick title screen for the old Super Dimensional Fortress Macross NES game.  I got the design from an official logo I found online.  As for why there were wide spaces between letters, I didn't have a lot of tiles to work with, so I had to use what little I had.

This may come out once I make a patch for the NES ROM, but any suggestions on this title screen?

There is already a title screen hack for Macross. Though it's a combination of English and Japanese.

I saw that one, but I wanted to do one of my own regardless.
