Trees look like they could fit in a C64 port of Chaos Engine.

Need at least one transparent pixel to prevent PNGs being converted to JPEG.

Will still convert indexed PNGs to truecolour though and so strip out the palette.

Given you have to jump through hoops for clean pixels and smoothly looping animations, I wouldn't say excellent.

Damnit, I seem to have bought the wrong brand of depression.

Also what about non-square pixel stuff? I'd much rather wide/tall pixel be scaled than appear in the wrong aspect ratio.

Should be an explicit exception for previews though.

They are going about it all backwards. We put up with the janky controls and physics of the original so that we could appreciate the gorgeous visuals. So what do they do? They dump the gorgeous and keep the janky.

If you think the original Gods looks good the HD remaster will blow your mind!

Android Chrome has a setting to compress images to save mobile data. Make sure that's off.

Hyper Turrican Turbo: Championship Edition

surt @ 12/25/2017 18:59 commented on Big Bird

Pretty cool. Does seem to miss a few colours from ramps that any human would include (eg. black in EGA) but that'd probably just be a matter of tweaking the weighting.

Is submission comment paging broken or is it just me? Cyangmou's mummy stuff for example.

Aseprite is still missing a tilemap editing mode.

Nature should know better than to mess with Murrica.

Become morbidly obese and your body will be self-cuddling. Nothing's so snug as being wrapped in lovely, warm rolls of lard.

If queue=q does that mean queueueueueueue=q too?

I will always hold a grudge against lollige for changing his username.

They should still be calibrating to match the same physical reality though.

surt @ 8/12/2017 10:41 commented on Big Bird

You've got awesome colours. Because the eye/brain adapts to the environment/context you still percieve the correct colours (more or less) even if you don't physically see them, so you can still manage to use close to the correct colours.

surt @ 8/11/2017 22:06 commented on Big Bird

Your eyes/brain are probably just adapted to the old incorrect colours. When I first used a proper screen calibrator the results looked disgustingly yellow at first but soon normalized and switching back to uncalibrated looked even more horrible. Most displays seem to have overstrong blue by default.

Volunteers are the real problem with society today. I mean, people offering to help others without demanding payment, that's basically communism.

I've always pronounced it Leonard, as my so named buddy is just an outline.

With something between claw and fingertip grip I need a shortie with some junk in the trunk, so I can anchor the heel of the hand on the desk and anchor outer ball of the hand on the mouse.
