To whoever out there is currently playing X-Com2 I have a message for you: STOP IT! You're bringing down my Sid Meier servers!
We wont hold that against you here, Draz!
But on the skreets you might get throat punched saying stuff like that.
Edit: I personally feel as though Iggy Azalea should've been FIRST choice!
I like Coldplay.
Cold Play, uh, is doing the halftime show.
Soo...we kinda ALL...lost!!!
Alright, let's see if I can churn something out in 72 hours for my first Pixelation collab D:
Good thing I have the whole weekend
As a fan of true futbol all your sucky teams better lose!
Hexquisite Corpse 3 is now running at pixelation. Feel free to join in. http://wayofthepixel.net/index.php?topic=19566.0
As a Patriot that hates anything Manning: PANTHERS BETTER WIN!
As a native North Carolinian: WOO PANTHERS
My nipples get soo dry this time of year.
Streets of Rage and Rampage are not really platformers.
Strider Hiryu needs to be in there, though. Could also throw in Turrican and Giana (Great Giana Sisters), the little guy from Gimmick as well, he's so cute and it's a great game.
Also, Sketch Turner from Comix Zone, Tim from Braid, someone from Broforce, Trace from Axion Verge, Richard Conway from Gunpoint, knight from Rogue Legacy, Shank.
They're not_so_iconic or not_so_platformy, but may be worth adding.
Bionic Commando, Shinobi, Ninja Turtles, Simpsons, Golden Axe, Streets Of Rage, Rampage, Contra, Batman, Mischief Makers.
That's just a few off the top of my head. I might have more later.
I'm thinking about doing a piece featuring a generic platformer level stuffed full of iconic platformer characters. Are there any not on this list that I should add?
Thank you jal for not being that guy who copyrights palettes.
And I reckon the 500 errors might be due level 1 status.
Not entirely sure on Intl copyright laws but in the US he did just enough because he is not promoting or profiting from anything he shows.
He does need my permission for the Twitter banner (and the tree avvy) because that is for self promotion but I won't bother with that piece which has already been used without permission by some.
"thankyou but the dream is over"
Check this Johan Gonzalez dude: 100s of PA reposted on tumblr and Twitter and G+ without ever giving credit (other than the usual "Disclaimer: All images are copyright to their respective owners").
Johanvinet, Mrmo, Paul Roberston, Vierbit, and countless others are there. His twitter banner is none other than our fave mod's Gothic Level
Edit: twitter acct deleted.
am being auto-logged out randomly on Windows 10 Chrome
I can change my avatar without any errors.
I love the 'for'
Works fine for me.
Yes, we know about that one and it is high on the to-do list.
Too many other fires going on.
Just siwtched avatars around. Works for me.
Only thing I get server 500 errors on is if I click to come to the chatterbox from my inbox.
Pixeljoint.com - Pixel Art, Forum Avatars, Buddy Icons, Server 500 Errors.
Is everyone getting 500 errors on avvy changes?
ahaha, you too now. but at least you got one. :-/
So um I can't change my avatar. I keep getting server 500 errors. Doesn't matter what piece I tried donning several random ones including sedge's AOL buddy stuff. Nuffin' works. Who broke PJ now?
I wasn't aware someone was writing a book on PJ history, mind PMing me with their handle?
About the cabinet, I think it'd be best to contact someone within the DIA's American Art department, though my own emails have gone unanswered. One can become a member of a group with special priveleges with the department, but that requires a yearly due.
My quest for the wood cabinet does continue and I have been helping a PJer who is writing a comprehensive book on PA history.
He has gone as far as talking to some of the Xerox guys and I think we now even have the paper doodles that explain pixelart to the bosses as doodles. Some real early Susan Kare stuff too...lots of stuff I have yet to even review.
In your list its the Xerox to Apple that seems the most lacking and the one area where there is the most actual pixelart related things that can be added.
I will try to add to your list but must first ask for permission in case something is to proprietary as that history has been in the works for a long time now.
About the cabinet. The State of Michigan refuses to release the paperwork and data on the cabinet and the state is underfunded so its tough. My quest with another PJer in the area to get free legal services continues because the freedom of information act is weird in Michigan and I/we do not have official museum acreditaion...its bullshit but I'm still on it.
There is one ommison I noticed and that's the mid 80s architectural craze of placing colored gels on boxy glass buildings that create pixelart at night. I have some pics of some of these things which if I recall began in Argentina but maybe it was Barcelona :/
Got a thread about the history of pixel art over there, if y'all have any input. It's a timeline from the ancient world to today.
Thanks fin, that was worth it :D
Man, I better come up with a project.
Well then I will just have to keep using the previous version for pieces where I want to record the process... or somehow autohook all clicks to always create a new frame... :o
It is missing. Jan removed it because it never played well with layers or projects with multiple frames in the first place. It might come back, but don't hold your breath.
Has anyone else noticed the "Create Animation From Undo Buffer" feature is missing from the latest ProMotion or am I just too blind to find it?
To the newer members who may not know nvision a raid of his gallery is recommended.
PJ lore: nvision was the inspiration for the PJ Artist Features
Link is broken. Here's working one.
Or potato salad.
@Cure Ah. I was looking at the Campaign page, as the Updates page appeared to contain almost no information on the project. The Campaign page mentions Archipics but not Fool or MrMo...
Fool & Mrmo
Exactly, artists added after the initial release are: Archipics, Fool, Mrmo. Removed: Dark.
The kickstarter page stated that they were added later. As prowler said, the scope of the book expanded.
Definitely going to be a part of my library. I hoard art books, and have exactly 0 about pixel art.
I've just realized how crazy kickstarter is
If you watch the trailer video on the campaign page, Mrmo and Fool are not in the list of "masters" at the end though..
Is all good. Thank you for contributing your own experience and knowledge about pixel art.
Welcome to the fold.
Yes, it's true the book started out as a collection of demoscene pixel graphics, then shifted to a slightly wider focus to include new pixel artists as well with no connection to the demoscene. For instance, Archipics is another guy also included.
This book features 5-bit colour images up to 8-bit colour images (4-bit or below as used by Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum are not included in this book).
You can read more info in the Kickstarter "campaign" and "updates".
I may give you an honorary mention, Fin. Okay, king_bob, too.
