:(

If this was possible to use on the game!...

:woozy:

 

You know, Bankswitching is your friend.

If you decide to use a fixed background, the combinations of possible different pictures to store will be relatively low.

Would like to see that working on Mortal Kombat...

Done using /s=10000 and "laoo" pallette and oh, for "friends" I've also used /filter=box /dither=chess. Both after over 80 million evals, still WIP but I'll rather give up. :P

 

Enjoy!

Original image pre-processed with xn-view (cropped and reduced to 160 * 200) and then Timanthes (mapped to 'gray' palette).

Processed overnight using: /pal=laoo /filter=box /dither=none /s=1 /h=200

 

(This highlighted an issue when processing using palette 'gray' as the resulting xex uses colours > $0F in the palette which then come out in the running xex as non-gray scale colours)

Awesome pic. Can I have the source pic for that please? I want to try some stuff with it ...

 

Yes, of course you can. I'm not a person that tests out every combination of parameters, so I guess that you could get some better results.

 

Here you go:

What a fascinating tool! Here's, some results some of my little experiments. By the way, if someone is looking for the "inspiration" for "quantinizning", the site - http://www.pixeljoint.com/default.asp - has a many "low colour/low resolution" examples of really great pixel art works.

Nice pictures ZebCorpse and welcome on AA!

 

As written in the first post, could you please use filenames format "Author's name_imagename"?

Eg. "ZebCorpse_Gothic.xex"

I was actually going to try to render the pic in that MIN 80 color flicker mode (Graphics 12 + 9) to see what it would look like in 16 shades, in addition to trying my own Rasta render, to compare. I'm going to post the results in my own thread tho, don't want to hijack this thread too much.

Well, some further "experiments". If I understand correctly, this all the Atari power (sprites, DLI's, interrupts, etc.) has, throwing at once on the static screen. Is this mode (new?) has a name?

This is a software generated mode.... nothing new, but never used that way before. Which means in that automated way.

It uses a linear graphics mode and puts all PM ito the overlay with "on the fly" CPU commands.

The limits were in the linear graphics mode, while charset mode give a colour more. And the limits depend on the used algorithm of the converter's author.

You know Graph2Font?

Those are awesome! How many evaluations are you running? Are you doing any pre-processing?

 

About 500M evaluations in Beta5.1

No preprocessing other than setting RastaConverter parameters (laoo palette, more contrast for the ship picture, knoll or 2d dithering, 10000 solutions). I should have used the details mask for the ship, btw.

500M...! I usually stuck about 30-60M and then my patience ends... ;) Anyway, I'm sure, careful prepared pictures (masks etc) can be really amazing. Btw, Emkay, yes, I know G2F, but that program requires fairy amount knowledge of Atari inner work (and has a "lower" detail resolution overall, because of characters use, if I understand correctly how it works, but please, don't cite me...). Rasta is wonderful easy to use. Anyway, some of pictures, reminds me a bit Amiga HAM mode (those stripes (sprites?) artifact...).

I guess Emkay mentioned "HAM"-like, too. I only know HAM decades ago while using Personal Paint on my A1200.
