+Andrew Davie Posted February 2, 2008 Author Share Posted February 2, 2008 As an experiment I tried seeing what the gfx would look like with only 2 alternating colour lines, rather than 3. The 21 pixel height of the 'tiles' doesn't quite fit here, but this is just a mockup. Well, although this might look better when full size on a TV (due to less spacing between the colour line effect), it's missing the wider range of your colour palette, especially the grey as well as the blue for the boulders. Still, it was an interesting experiment.. I find the smaller the TV, and the further away you are, the better BD looks. I don't mind this, really -- back in the day, smaller TVs would generally be the norm. Your experiment is interesting, and I'm sure could be used for other games requiring just a 4 colour playfield. It's a bit un-nerving seeing these runnable demos using the exact graphics that BD uses; in principle these graphics are copyright © First Star Software... so perhaps it might be worthwhile keeping that in mind. I'd like to keep them happy. Cheers A Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
