Maria Gets Some New Clothes Too

Recommended Posts

New palettes for ProSystem - Maria247, Maria252, Maria257, Maria262, Maria267, Maria272, & Maria277!

 

Download them here: Maria2XX_Palettes_20131016.zip

 

Not to be outdone by her older sister, Maria has received some new clothes as well.

 

Like the Stella palettes, we have Phase Shifts 24.7 through 27.7 degrees in 0.5 degree increments. Unlike the Stella palettes under the Stella emulator, Maria has no easy way to make adjustments to the base values when being utilized under the ProSystem emulator, as many video options are not present. So, in addition to the base values, three varieties of intensity accompany the set.

 

Also, the Maria palettes have different files for each region. NTSC and PAL regions are included.

 

After further investigation and research, it appears what seems to be 'automatic' pot adjusting while the system is running is simply just the phase shifting. It is better understood and captured at a lower/cooler start (24.7 degrees) and watching via gradual increases of 0.5 degree. Previous palettes only offered phase shifts 25.7, 26.7, and 27.7.

 

This set is much more complete and thorough in covering the 7800's hues and their respective phases on a CRT better than any prior releases.

 

Screen captures to follow are in this order:

Maria247 --> Maria252 --> Maria257 (aka 180 degrees colorburst) --> Maria262 --> Maria267 --> Maria272 --> Maria277

Added a saturation bump only (x0) and a few contrast increased options to the line (x4, x5, x6) better rounding out the display choices for the Maria palette set.

Download the entire set here: Maria2XX_Palettes_20131017.zip

Previous palettes in the Maria set are the same, just new ones were added.

Here is a line of base palette with x0 thru x6 via in-game captures. Captures are from the phase shift 26.2 degrees, but the concept follows for all phase shifts.

Screen shots are in the following order:
Maria262 --> Maria262x0 --> Maria262x1 --> Maria262x2 --> Maria262x3 --> Maria262x4 --> Maria262x5 --> Maria262x6

To provide an even more diverse set of palettes for Maria, x7, x8, and x9 have been created. That brings the total series for each phase shift having x0 thru x9 as available display options in addition to the base palette.

Download the complete NTSC & PAL set here: Maria2XX_Palettes_20131018.zip

*November 3, 2013 Update: There was a slight typo for the NTSC and PAL 26.7 degrees phase shift palettes that has been corrected. Visually it is not noticeable by the naked eye, but technically it was incorrect.

The corrected palette set is here: Maria2XX_Palettes_20131103.zip
[includes all prior palettes posted earlier just have them overwritten with this set]

*NOTE: A summary of Maria (Atari 7800) and her sister Stella (Atari 2600) colors and console behavior can be found HERE.

What to expect from the display options...

x0 = Saturation Increase
x1
x2 = Gamma Increase and Saturation Deltas
x3

x4
x5 = Gamma and Saturation Increase with Contrast Deltas
x6

x7
x8 = Saturation Increase with Contrast Deltas
x9


It runs the display gambit reasonably well.

The following captures are in this order:
Maria262 --> Maria262x0 --> Maria262x1 --> Maria262x2 --> Maria262x3 --> Maria262x4 --> Maria262x5 --> Maria262x6 --> Maria262x7 --> Maria262x8 --> Maria262x9

Utilizing the 'x7' display variety, here is the phase shift in this order:
Maria247x7 --> Maria252x7 --> Maria257x7 --> Maria262x7 --> Maria267x7 --> Maria272x7 --> Maria277x7
