Crowd-Sourced or Public Domain Reference Photo Repository

I was thinking about a small project on this thread that could grow depending on participation. The idea would be to take reference photos and upload them. The photograph subjects would be common objects or organisms that could then be manually turned into pixel art by all interested persons. The pi...

Re: New to the group and ready to create!

Welcome. I would let being color blind discourage you. You could just make your games all grayscale and call it Gameboy retro.

Re: How big can you make a boss?

I don't know how Ninja Gaiden 3 got this to work, but notice how both screens have a black background and also Ursula has a lot of solid colors within her. As per Kasumi (in https://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=10784.msg115062#msg115062 among other places), there are 256 unique background tiles on...

Re: Hello Everyone

Welcome! What kind of dog? Here is a tutorial for sprite based quadruped animation https://www.patreon.com/posts/quadruped-walk-14012170 . The guy designs these tutorials more for 16-bit systems with there large palettes, # of frames, and character sizes, but there are probably some fundamentals tha...

Learning Famitracker

While there are Famitracker forums ( http://famitracker.com/forum/ ), I though it might be helpful to have some links to Famitracker tutorials on these forums for those just starting out. It might also be helpful to have some tips specifically for those trying to create Famitracker files that will b...

Re: Help with a project?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but guys making NESMaker only want us making original games. Demakes, remakes, and unofficial sequels put them and the project in a legally precarious situation. Read the NESMaker FAQ Section on Kickstarter under the question "Can I sell my game? Do I have to pay ...

Re: Dropping bombs like in Zelda possible?

As I know it's not wise to make a game that looks and plays like Bomberman I just wanna create a test game to mimic this in case someone needs a game that requires the zelda/bomberman like bombs physics. Names and characters can be trademarked; art, music, and code can be copyrighted; but gameplay ...

Re: Preferred software to get music ideas and sounds.

I am pretty good at singing (terrible at piano and guitar), but I can kind of read sheet music. So I have been studying up on music theory on Wikipedia (chords, arpeggios, chord progressions, scales, etc.). It kind of makes my compositions a little simple right now in some ways, but they do sound di...

Re: Drawing Women/Females

I would suggest tweaking some of the sister's pixels near her chin/neck. I know that it's probably supposed to be a neck that is abstracted, but to me it just seems like a really big chin. It looks great on the mom.

Re: The Free Graphic Assets Thread

I got this guy, he's like a trojan soldier, more like a robot version of one. I need help making him look better and walking, jumping, fighting. If anyone can help I'd thank you for it. Here is a slight fix to your original pixel art. Notice that while I did not change his vertical dimensions, I di...
