Happy Birthday Mrmo! ²
Also had two seizures and a nosebleed yesterday. I just want it to stop. When will it stop? When do I got to be normal again?
Roger that, will add DB32 and will check out Arne's WIP versions. Meanwhile I've also added a NESlike palette (I say NESlike because no one on the entire internet seems to know how to accurately generate what colors the real hardware produces, so I based my own generator on (vague at best) technical specs of the PPU, NTSC signal descriptions and YPBPR to RGB conversion. Without having real hardware to examine though I won't claim it is THE NES palette, so it's just NES* (NESlike) :D. ).
edit: Ok. DB32 is in now (also it's possible to influence the text movement in the hello world demo by clicking/holding the mouse button now). I think I'll leave out the WIP palettes for now. Defining palettes is easy in Refugee Lib, so if anyone wants to use this (still very early version) of the lib, it's really simple to define additional palettes. :)
DB32 as well and Arne's got 32 and 64 colour palettes though AFAIK still WIPs.
Oh cool, both Arne and DawnBringer state on their pages their palettes are free to use. Sweet! If any of you two guys read this by chance, thanks! So I will add this(as AA16) and this(as DB16).
@surt: I'm playing with the thought of adding methods (in an optional addon though) to render oldschool modes from given bytearrays where you specify the bytearray(containing the bitfields) and the indexed palette and then having the method interprete those bits to produce a visual result resembling the oldschool hardware mode. One of those methods could be one which does just directly interprete the found bits as palette indices without changing the shapes of the pixels themselves. I intend to learn OpenGL/WebGL too and I want to add WebGL rendering routines to the lib for 2D as well as 3D graphics. I'm sure I'll find a way to make it speedy, I think OpenGL even supports indexed textures... I remember reading about it a few years back, may need some special states set and may not be in the ES2.0 subset though.
About my gallery... well, that's a story involving depression, Zen philosophy and mentally "moving on and letting go of old stuff" to free the mind for new stuff. I thought about reuploading a compilation image though, containing everything I had in the old gallery just for documentations sake.
Now I need to find the Arne and Dawnbringer palettes and I should probably ask for permission before including them.
... STILL AM!
We should cuddle!!!
Edit: @jal... MAKE THEM STOP!!!!
I'm really miserable knowing somewhere dumbo is laughing
A lot of great submissions to the weekly guys. Good job everyone, shame I can't vote for more than three.
Just translate the pixelart section.
Guys, If you want to read it
is the opinion of foreign tourists over Brazil.
Tourist Americans, Russians, Japanese ... Read really cool :)
(But it's in Portuguese, but can translate)
The Dawns and the Arnes of course.
So will it provide a facility for indexed rendering then? I've thought about doing this in the past but couldn't think of a speedy way to do it without resorting to WebGL shaders.
EDIT: What the hell happened to your gallery!
That did the trick, thanks!
I guess you go to 'view' -> 'new view' and it creates a new window.
In photoshop to do the trick you go to 'window' -> 'arrange' -> 'new window for' :)
Does anyone know how to get a preview image window to pop up in GIMP? Like for example, you're zoomed in on one part of your canvas, but you have a seperate window that shows what your canvas looks like zoomed out? I tried searching for it, but I guess I'm wording my question wrong so I don't get the right results. Anyone know how to enable what I'm talking about?
I... love... how... the... chatter... box... moves... at... lightning... fast... speeds... these... days... !
I'M BEING WITTY BITCHES!!!
Hi everyone. :) It's been a while. Working on a lib for making games. Short early wip demo featuring retro colors! (needs a decent/recent browser like FF or Chrome). My question is: Which other well-known (from retro computers or community made) palettes would you like to see included directly in the lib?
Deponia is a good one, sadly kinda doesn't run on my PC. Jaysus, i really need a new PC.
Ok, fair enough, guess it's not dead. XD
Also I played 2 out of the 3 Deponia's. I only stopped because I encountered an annoying little glitch that made Roofus disappear off the screen... permenantly.
And tinc clearly you're out of touch with modern gaming. No time to grind? You don't have to! Microtransactions is the name of the game in this day and age. For the low low price of $60 Blizzard will do all the grinding for you!
*other than a ton of halo 3 back in college and 3/4ths of Planescape Torment about two years ago.
next weekly challenge to be related to inktober?
I also added a bonus game :P Anyway, there's heaps more, depending if you want to include stuff developed by TellTale. Check out stuff by Pendulo, Daedalic, Amanita, and Wadjet Eye.
I had much more time to waste in the 90s, I don't play videogames anymore. I'll take your word for it.
I've got a friend who keeps trying to recruit me for World of Warcrack. Just say no to endless grinding.
Try playing Maniac Mansion ( The deluxe version) it's a really funny game, or Full Throtle. You gonna lawve it.
Happy birthday Geoglatico! C:
Aaah, I want to make more portraits...
This challenge palette is like a puzzle for me, I started to understand it after some of the best pieces came out! :D
@jal and kingbobston- thanks for the replies!
Thanks for wishing happy birthday, you guys are amazing!
Telltale games makes 3d point and click adventures.
Its not even my genre, i hate it mostly. I could name 9 more of the new ones but its easier to name 10 new platforming games
I don't think I've played a point-and-click since Freddi Fish.
That's 1. Name me 9 more and we'll have ourselves a bare minimum to qualify as "not dead". XD
Alot of new witty point and click games. Primordia for example.
I'm mostly sad because the majority of those games are now forever sealed away in time. They just don't make games like that anymore. Witty point&click adventures are pretty much dead as a genre.
And a lot of things have become a lot of things over the course of time. I have a swastika hairloom, I guess that makes me a Nazi.
Voting is going to be really fun for this week.
@DawnBringer - Yep, you know, I was close to scrapping this challenge entirely. I'm glad I didn't.
@greenraven - That DOS game list is great. No reason to feel sad, a big chunk of those games are available on GOG.
Long ago. It has also annoyed me for years. Wanting to stay in your room all week and wanting to blow up a movie theater are two very different motivations.
Totally was going to say that!!!
Impressive stuff in this week's challenge so far!
When did "antisocial" come to mean "asocial"? This really irritates me as an asocial pedant.
Hmm, I'm not sure if I'm completely antisocial asocial myself, I'm just really bad at conversation.
EDIT: Thanks for making me realize I was using the wrong term. You learn something new every day.
Long ago when society was just starting up me and my friends held demonstrations against it and we got stoned*
*like, others threw stones at us stoned
I'll tell you a secret....society sucks lol
And all the "I'm antisocial" thing seems to be spreading these days...
Well, i can't keep conversations for too much time or start them, so i just say some random stuff and a little bit much of what Dont is saying.
Completely randomly I found this. Anyone else suddely feel extremely sad?
My high CHARISMA stat always makes things even
Nice to know that I'm not the only socially inapt weirdo around here. XD
I'm fine with my 4-6 friends that I can talk everything about. The social pressure "GO SOCIALIZE! U GOT TO FIND A GIRLFRIEND! SHE'S LOOKING AT YOU, GO AND TALK TO HER!" just fucks the whole thing.
Not that unusual. I'm very much the same. I can deal with aggressive nutcases but I still struggle greatly with actual pleasant conversation most of the time. Just based on life experience. My 20's mostly consisted of having to deal with some pretty bad people a lot of the time but my 30's have so far been spent in quite a dull little town with a close-knit community of really nice folks... and I still, 4 years on, find social interaction very difficult. Now I'm much more comfortable being up on the stage playing a character instead of being myself. It's the main reason I'm even in a drama group.
And then you get war vets some of which almost miss their time in battle cos that's what they were good at and they have trouble adjusting to a normal life again too. Now I can't compare what I go through to what they've had to, but I can kinda relate to it.
Is it weird that I'd rather get mugged that be forced into polite social interactions?
I went to a thing last night and people were making me extremely uncomfortable with their polite questions and inquiries of where I work, what I study, what my hobbies are. All these questions have the same vague answer because I rarely ever leave the house these days on account of my MILD IRRATIONAL FEAR OF OTHER HUMAN BEINGS!!!!one!!!!eleven!!!!
And then when I get home I go to the park for my midnight jog like I always do, and I happen to come by some crackheads getting high in the bushes. And I thought to myself that there's probably a good chance I can get mugged right now, and I was surprisingly fine with that.
So the moral of the story is that I'm apparenlty more comfortable in a pitch black park with murderous thugs than a polite social gathering.
You'll never be a successfull internet detective!
But... who did that delightful smiley ?
they see us all......
That has been on my fave list since he submitted it.
I love it soooooo much and love to use it.
GTKhas a nice gallery too.
Jal, that is literally the best emoticon in the history of the internet.
edit: LMAO @ quote of the moment
I gotta go save the world. ya'll better behave!
now that is fucking creepy, man.
I'm probably the one being watched, like usual!! D^:
Are you throwing an eye on me? I'm flattered.
though I may have a foot fetish. comes with the job.
but I wouldn't know no nothin bout that, no. I'm just a sneaker in this world, I got no sense for that.
ah, I remember! it's the ladies! they are dressed pretty. and hella drunk.
Where's your conversation partner? Dunno!
edit: yo rav I heard u liek shoes http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/89192.htm
where's my... I dunno... I'm missing something. might be important. my socks maybe.
ya hear meee!? it's a pity!!
It's Oktoberfest. beer everywhere. it's the best. I pity u fools.
buncha pixel prostitutes. pixel patriarchy. and pixel propaganda.
Hrrm, but I think greeny mixed up words from the last seizure. Of course we meant to say pixel. That's dirty enough as is, which is why we're here. to keep it clean. and professional. I'm a great fan of the professional handywork.
It's very wily. I mean it's called Willy.
I don't know how touchy I really am, but I like to think I'm in touch. with my penis anyway. it can talk too. So that makes twice as much talk, as you undoubtedly noticed.
Well she was very touchy with penises, I tell you that much.
Seriously though, it's your badge, it brings out the worst in people.
Thanks for the happy birthdays Jalonso and Mandrill. :)
If you work with the fitting size of the document (16x16 for 16x16 tile) you could just draw the middle and then go filers->others->offset, check wrap around and type in half the pixels (in my example 8) to move the border to the middle. Then you can work on the transition. If you know you will work often in the same size, you should make a custom action for it (you probably should anyway, since moving it back and forth can be quite usuable).
Edit: What I mean is described in the video jal already posted, around 11:30 he starts speaking of it.
I don't remember that. I just remember her as being a landmine field, very touchy on almost any topic.
Oh yeah that's right you pixeled the boobs. XD
And jal, well yeah I suppose there is that. But Aleiav was a nymph with a penis fetish. She and I got along juuuuuuuuuust fine.
Happy Birthday DoctorDRG
Yeah no, I wasn't serious. You should check my stuff sometimes.
I don't remember Aleiav and penis subject. Everything with her was a 'subject'.
Aleiav is the girl version of RAV, right?
*No offense RAV, I mean talkative ;)
By the way I hope you weren't being serious about sex being a taboo topic. Because if you were, I pity you poor child. jal! jal! Remind the class what Aleiav's specialty is when it comes to the word "penis".
I miss leel and her antics. Not just personality, she could pixel too.
Weekly showcase incoming.
I'd report the boobs part as being NPA but I won't be getting my NPA badge anyway if I do...
You senile old man. Must I bring proof? You probably don't remember this, do you?
Harrassing leel is impossible as her chest is flatter than mine, fool.
You poor sheltered child you, you would have never survived 5 minutes in the IRC.
And "higher authorities" you say? Let's have leel make a post here and see how many sexual harassments jal can combo in under a minute.
That's never been brought up here but there must be a way using PS.
Does this help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFvsRvo_78Y
if anyone here makes non-pixel art tilesets, is there a way to make things line up well when there are 'tools' involved, like auto-aa?
not sure what the optimal setup for something like photoshop is.
Talking about sex is frowned upon in the CB. Please behave. Or I'll have to report you to higher authorities!!!!
Sex is to remain taboo as a topic please.
I accept acts of a sexual nature.
Paypal accepts human sacrifice ?
I accept human sacrifices.
I wouldn't mind if people sent me some money. It'd be awesome if you guys could bust your ass working while I just rake in the cash and do whatever I feel like. Thanks in advance.
I accept PayPal.
I feel hese pixel daily challanges are made for me but i cant find the time
test not working :(
