Temple Garden. 85 colors.
 
I hope I didn't already post this one before, I re-discovered it in a folder (the original image), and think it is one I attempted before but never to my satisfaction to post. But I might be mis-remembering, so sorry if this is a re-run image. :? But this is not an old converted .xex, it's a new conversion from the source.

It's hard to believe this image has only 160x239 pixels.

Amazing!


#4235249 Couple of ATR-8000 pics

Posted by a8isa1 on Sat Mar 9, 2019 7:19 PM

I was working on my ATR-8000s today at the AHCS meeting, and took a couple of pics of them.
Got a couple more if anyone is interested.

you have copower-88!

 

I'm jealous  :(

 

My ATR8000 still works but the only upgrade it's ever seen is a move from 180K drives to 360K drives (about 7 years ago)

The Day The Earth Stood Still. 58 colors. Not my best, to be sure, and normally not good enough for me to post, but I spent a week trying to get this one right so here it is...

I love this conversion, Gunstar.  I consider probably one of your top 3, excluding your car pics and automotive art conversions.  They have a different criteria with me.

This one could use more processing but I'm tired of looking at it.   Colorful but I think it's too busy.

Here's a picture that worked well. 

 

Any picture I post is pretty random. Just a picture that caught my eye and more importantly one that turned out OK as a 'rastaconversion'.

 

I guess I'm not very imaginative.

Not the best photos given the background, need to find a better spot when I have some time..

These have small line errors.  They are a little more conspicuous in the PAL conversion.

 

You will see some lines that are not errors.  I used 'line' dither.   In some areas the dithering blends better than in other areas.

The above xex files are intended to be used with my palettes (see my sig) with saturation 40.  The NTSC palette is set to match as best as I can with 800XL and my TV (a year 2000ish CRT model).

 

Here's a screen of my TV (NTSC).

I can't remember if I ever posted this conversion.   I've tried many times to improve upon it but with no success.

looks better on my new (to me, circa 2000) CRT TV than it does on my laptop's LCD.  It looks reasonably good on my phone.  I mean the screenshot does.

 

NTSC only

Once again I didn't allow myself enough time to do Xmas conversions. Those that I offer here need more work. At least,  I think I've done better than last year.

 

For NTSC conversions you'll need my palettes and saturation=40.  My palettes are intended to match my Ataris (as close as I could get anyway).  Hopefully they work for you as well.  Again, you'll need to crank the saturation up (a lot).

 

36 Colors

42 Colors

45 Colors

For PAL conversions (only one so far) use default palette with saturation=45.

Merry Christmas, Atarians!
