QuoteI will probably offer the option to switch to the regular NES SMB palette, but before I was thinking of making the option more prominent, now it might be more of an "easter egg" or just a button option
QuoteAnd I also decided this hack needs a title screen that makes it stand out from the other ones.. recreating the X1 title screen looks too much like existing hacks
Quote from: TRIFORCE89 on May 09, 2021, 04:37:14 PMI don't know if you're exploring having save functionality (I saw a high-score save patch for the old hacks before) - but if so, maybe the palette selection can be saved to avoid a button code input everytime.
Quote from: frantik on May 09, 2021, 03:27:29 PMYes I was thinking I would include the "Congrats" screen and credits.. at the end of the game there's a credits sequenceI started experimenting with the Sharp X1 look and decided to NOT use any of the dithered tiles, they just look too horrible on NES with composite output. The Sharp X1 only has 8 colors, so there's a lot of dithering to try to make new colors. NES has slightly better color capabilities, though it has its own limits with only 4 colors allowed per sprite. Having looked at a bunch of Sharp X1 screens though, the red/blue aspect of them seems to be the dominate charateristic, so I feel like that can be brought over. I'm ending up with a kind of "hybrid" scheme that looks good on NES but still is reminiscient of the X1. I will probably offer the option to switch to the regular NES SMB palette, but before I was thinking of making the option more prominent, now it might be more of an "easter egg" or just a button option that is mentioned in the manual (vs an on screen menu or whatever)(bonus: some enemies allowed to show up on the first screen of the level)And I also decided this hack needs a title screen that makes it stand out from the other ones.. recreating the X1 title screen looks too much like existing hacksI hope to have a version ready for play testing soon.. just wanna get the credit sequence done and maybe some other minor stuff
Quote from: frantik on May 09, 2021, 09:20:06 PM When I was planning on having the palette selection screen I was thinking the maybe having that main title screen I posted, and then a screen where you picked the colors, and THEN it would show the replica title screen, but that's so many button presses just to start the game. Thanks for the feedback on the "FOR NES" part.. wasn't 100% sure about that or the Push Start text either.. but I spent so long on the "SPECIAL" graphic I definitely want to use it!

Quote from: ShadowOne333 on May 10, 2021, 12:34:59 PMI could work on an optional patch for the hack that makes the graphics and palettes 1:1 with the X1 version, in case you don't want to tackle such a thing.
Quote from: mahou on May 18, 2021, 05:20:11 AMAnother thing that is also exclusive is the way to enter the game's demo mode, (that is, the original of nes, continues on the title screen)and the special version (it is as if the player played giving way to the demo of level 1-1)I know this is something very additional, but could it also apply to the hack ??It could also be difficult to add , I think
