Re: The Sega Master System thread

The SMS port of Ghouls 'N Ghosts wasn't very good... I wish they did a better job with that. ...says you! I loved this. :mrgreen: I particularly enjoyed the upgrade system. The reason I played the SMS version was because I had only ever played the NES Ghosts 'n Goblins and felt an 8-bit home versio...

Re: The Sega Master System thread

Would you guys say the Game Gear library is better or worse than the Master System lineup? I ask because, growing up, my only real connection to the SMS was through Game Gear. From my experience, the games were very good: • Jurassic Park • Asterix & the Great Rescue • X-Men: Gamesmaster's Legacy...

Re: LASEReyes

I realized that I have an extra color for the bg for the cemetery. Since I need as much gradient as possible on the borders, and I need both brown and green to make trees and bushes (more on that soon) I went with something inbetween: lasereyes_field_cemetery2.png Edit: I think this is going along n...

Re: Desired Possible Inventions

As a guy who hates body hair, I've always wanted an easy way to get rid of it, then a few years ago I found out about at-home laser/IPL devices. So my wish came true. Edit: Maybe this thing could kill mosquitoes? I once had an ant crawl on my arm and accidentally zapped it, but I'm not sure what kil...

Re: LASEReyes

I'm just about done with this valley tileset. lasereyes_field_valley_mockup.png Though this cliff border uses more tiles than the wall border, it shares tiles with the inside walls. Edit: Woohoo! This tileset will work nicely as a palette swap for a haunted night valley stage: boundaryvalleynight.pn...

Re: We are looking for a musician for our finished game

I'm just chiming in to attest to za909's talent. Here are some samples of his work:

I can't find any Nova the Squirrel playlists or videos without ads.

Re: LASEReyes

I didn't like the way the vertical border didn't match the horizontal border (and pretty much all the corners), so here's an update (right side):

What do you think?

Edit: Maybe I should get rid of the second-to-last column of brown pixels?

Okay, I'll check Mesen out.

Here's a mockup of a dug out valley border:

Re: LASEReyes

Omg I'm so stupid. I'm so stupid! I thought about how the laser would obstruct the bots' bodies when they're looking down: bgtest_terrain.png Everyone's distinct laser color would differentiate each bot and player! On team battles, I can just make teammates share the same color laser (friendly fire...

Re: LASEReyes

I decided to make my Flybot's saucer base spin: bot_saucer.gif So far this is the only animated idle sprite. The different feet are well distinguishable, but the helmets with just a few pixels' difference would not be. I was thinking of having both different helmets and different legs (and even have...

Very excellent! I'm a huge fan of the minotaur. :D Oh yeah, that's what they're called! I was searching 'demon bull' when trying to find reference images. :lol: The four CPU dudes look like hard to tell apart when in action, their colors are too close. If it matters that is, the player may not care...

Re: LASEReyes

Won't this effect ever have to overlap walls, lasers an other things also using the background? I imagine it working like Bomberman, where the explosion is raycasted and just simply stops when it encounters something it can't eliminate. Yes, I pretty much just based all my bomb ideas off Bomberman....
