This is a mockup for my C64 point and click adventure project 'Caren and the Tangled Tentacles'. The background graphics are based on two charsets (one for the panel, one for the scene). The girl is a combination of 3 sprites. In the panel there are hires-sprites used for highlighting icons.

What is a bit special here is the amount of foreground objects like fence and plants. Those are realized by using single colored sprite masks that are set to the background. In this case these masks work like a canvas that show all bit patterns that are specified as background (1 for hires, 2 for Multicolor) to the front, covering all sprites with lower priority than the mask. This may sound odd, but in action this is like working with Photoshop layers by hardware on a 30 year old machine...

Restrictions for charmode:
Redesigned font with 256 characters, each char can be specified individually as MultiColor (4x8px, double pixel) or HiRes (8x8px). Editable screen-size is 40x25 chars.
One global background color from the total 16 color palette,
two additional fix colors for MultiColor from the 16 color palette also,
one color free to chose per char from the first 8 colors (this is because the palette is cut for selcting the resolution mode).

fix colors used here:
background scene - brown, background panel - dark blue
multicolor 1 - mid grey, multicolor 2 - black (mc2 is also the second foreground color for masking)

It is possible to use more than one character set on screen but thanks to technical limitations it only make sense for using one charset per rasterbar.

Lovely and really controlled result. Any way we can see this in movement? Even a small gif of the character walking about?

This is excellent. Pushing the middle building back really makes the whole scene feel like a neighbourhood.
