haha, he had to paste his palette multiple times because the image was too big to scroll back and forth. That is amazing

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 7/24/2016 15:41

I got you covered, Opossum Man!

Oh, come on, Greenie...

2D Sanics are the only good Sanics. Especially after the dismal reBooming. 

Lovecraft?! Is that a Harry Potter spell? 

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/22/2016 20:01

Looks to have a few more colours but pretty much the same. Maybe a SNES port of the Mega Drive games.

StoneStephenT (Level 7 Assassin) @ 7/22/2016 19:25

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxmtYdEWVzo - Sonic returns to 2D, pixels and all. That sprite has never looked better.

Read 'Cats of Ulthar'!

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/22/2016 13:44

Fuck yeah. +10 Lovecraft Points for you :D

Did you read some of his works?

Is greenie on a pilgrimage now?

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/20/2016 13:02

Fark me. I spent days trying to figure out why my compute shader was filling my chunks with white, turns out I just forgot to use apply after setting the voxel values in my empty texture. 

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/20/2016 08:23

I guess I was confused by the new layout - couldn't figure out where to click.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/20/2016 08:17

Well, it's in now, give it another shot.

As far as I know, it should still be possible to select a piece as an avatar before it's in the gallery - so, it'd be weird if that was the issue.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/20/2016 05:00

Hey, how come I can no longer make pieces into my avatar before they're accepted? D:

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/20/2016 02:27

Weird, my mum has a framed version of that on the wall. Never knew it was so mysterious.

I can't think of a reason why it shouldn't be named Gavin.

I have a lot to learn from you 

Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/18/2016 06:01

I do know the definition of smartass after all 

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/17/2016 11:03

You're a smart one :P

Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/17/2016 05:56

Obviously, it's a government conspiracy to capture the most elite Pokemon trainers.

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/17/2016 02:38

GO has already had some victims apparently...

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/16/2016 01:30

@Greenie Oh man how lucky are you? You'd be the first in thousands of years to actually know god!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 7/15/2016 11:43

Uhh, it's a long story, greeny. Call me on my mobile and I'll tell you.

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/15/2016 05:01

There better be a pretty interesting story on why you're living in cave 100 years behind civilization.


Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 7/15/2016 03:30

@ Muffin

Good ol' Graphicsgale

@ Fusionnist

Cheers for the tip! However, I don't have a mobile, let alone a smartphone.

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/15/2016 01:36

GO is quite fun, though there is no stop nearby and I'm out of pokeballs now.

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/15/2016 01:34

Pixly (on mobile) is quite convenient for animation, as long as you have a smartphone.

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/15/2016 00:47

which one? 

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 7/14/2016 15:38

What programme would you guys recommend for animations? I'm working on a new avatar and Photoshop is driving me crazy in this regard.

No hassle, I've found one.

Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/14/2016 11:39

I'd imagine it'll be slightly more successful than Sega's version of it, pretty sure they have a Mega Drive home console type thing with pre installed games. Though it's nothing revolutionary, you're basically paying for the fact it's a Nintendo product and it's exterior, and maybe the controller ports. But other than that it's nothing that can't be achieved on a Raspberry Pi. 



I know that I'll probably pick one up, whilst I do have a Raspberry Pi and an NES there's something telling me to get one, has a nice collection of games too. Judging by the name they've given it, it looks like they'll be releasing more of them, possibly SNES, N64 etc etc.

cure (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/14/2016 10:23

Very niche market, I'd wager most people think NES games are boring or basic compared to today's offerings, especially given that we're still talking about a home console and not a handheld.

CritiqueMyWork (Level 6 Commander) @ 7/14/2016 09:54

What do you think of this http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Misc-/Nintendo-Classic-Mini/Nintendo-Classic-Mini-Nintendo-Entertainment-System-1124287.html ? I expect more retro pixels in the future.

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/14/2016 07:49

I still haven't gotten over how asinine the kids show used to be. I think that's when I developed an aversion for pokestuff. But hey, live and let live, whatever floats your boat. 

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/14/2016 07:26

Johnny Law ain't quite as understanding.

Kids get a slap on the wrist. Filthy college hipsters can and will be arrested. 

cure (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/14/2016 07:03

Jesus said "Let the little children come to me, do not forbid them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Churches around here are offering water and putting out seating.

Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/14/2016 06:56

Young at heart Jal.



On the topic of Pokemon Go, they really need to remove some of the Pokestops. Here (Ireland) a lot of them are at religious stuff (ie Churches, Shrines, Memorials etc etc). Whilst I'm not religious myself I highly doubt those that are want kids and what not running around trying to catch Pokemon at them. 

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/14/2016 06:54

Coincidentally it led to a 404 the first few times I clicked on it.

jal you know they recognize you from the wanted poster, right? 

I would play Pokemon Go but with my erratic sociopathic behavior I won't catch anything because I'll be in weird places.

After watching the Bethesda block during AGDQ I've picked up and am playing Skyrim again.

There's a few things that Morrowind did right that they omitted from the newer games. Little things that make the game more interesting... like using forks as weapons.

Seriously though as a mage I'm a bit peeved about not having unarmed, unarmored, and staff mastery at my disposal. And don't get me started on spell creation. It was a letdown in Oblivion and a dismal disappointment in Skyrim.

cure (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/14/2016 06:50

Lvl 18. The park downtown is swarming with people, especially in the evenings. There was virtually a stampede when a Snorlax popped up on the radar. Sucks, because I'm not wading through a mosh pit just to catch Pokemon and hear kids who can't name half a dozen monsters screeching the theme to the anime.

Worse than the nerds are all the haters, locked into their couches and posting to Facebook about how some people need better things to do with their time

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/14/2016 06:19

I went to my nearest GO station and some kids looked at me funny :(

yahkehbu (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/14/2016 05:57

gotta catch 'em all..... except this one, your phone will crash.

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/14/2016 04:34

Oh my god no please, no more pokemon. I can't find a single outlet on the net which has been pokemon goed. 

Nah, do whatever you want, I'll keep on dreaming for a world without Pokemon.

Fusionnist (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/14/2016 01:43

Are there pokemen/pokewomen in here?

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/12/2016 05:02

Thanks guys, I'll try it. 

neota (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/11/2016 15:40


If they're the same dimensions, use gifsicle, eg. 'gifsicle anim1.gif anim2.gif anim3.gif > finalanim.gif'

If they're not the same dimensions, use ImageMagick or (tool of choice) to make them the same dimensions.. then use gifsicle. ;)

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 7/11/2016 11:28

You are the man(u), Manu!

Thanks a lot, buddy!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/11/2016 11:11

That is not a word , closest would be L'Echiquier (the chessboard).

L'ay-shi-ki-ay with following caveats: ay is supposed to represent the first sound in the english diphtong, a not y; shi as in ship, ki as in key (short) and ki-ay are not actually separated, they make just one single short syllable.

Edit: why bother. Seriously.

Iceberg (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/11/2016 10:53

Many thanks!

I've actually already submitted a news post which tells bare minimum of what needs to be known and links to the more detailed post on TIGSource and also actually have already created threads here on PJ forum and Pixelation, albeit with no mention of this little action yet since I want to get some feedback first.
The weekly challenge idea sounds like tons of fun actually, and there are no real restrictions aside from the canvas' 128x64 size and my reluctance to see any sensitive content on the canvas itself; however, I don't know if I can ask for such a thing since I can't even offer anything for the winners and participants aside from their names mentioned in game's credits - the whole project exists solely on the basis of our commitment.
