Leisure Suit Toby for ColecoVision

Recommended Posts

Hey retroillucid, what tool do you use to draw your graphics? And how do you convert them for use on the CV?

 

yes, I said tool!

 

 

Here's a good technique on how ''some people'' are checking if they have more than 2 colors per scanline

separate the whole screen into 8x8 pixels blocks (make it easier to check)

Maybe I should make a thread about How to make Colecovision graphics?

I could share my thoughts and tricks

 

I'm sure even other members might jump and give their tricks or way to do it as well

 

This could be very interesting for some peoples

is a .pal file a text file? If it is it might be easily convert to a gimp gpl file

 

As far as I know It's a .pal file

You don't need a .pal file, it just make things easier

 

You can just use this color palette (it's just not a .pal file)

but you can probably create one yourself in gimp

Woah!!! .... Its been a long time!! :-o

 

While I was browsing through our game projects, I've noticed that we have a bunch of projects that are ready to be programmed.

 

My goal is to resume some of them in 2018/2019, wich include Leisure Suit Larry

This game is in my top 10 best games of all time, I like it that much, so for sure I want this project to be done! :)

So you can expect us to release it next year! ;)

 

Meanwhile, I had the honor to meet the one and only; Al Lowe
Needless to say how Al is a gentlemen but also a very funny guy!

Great pic, I imagined Al Lowe would be a really cool guy! You all look so happy in that picture! I am glad you are going to continue that game.. I loved it and grew up with too!

 

I hope you are going to have those questions in the beginning that validate your age you put in at the start of the game.

 

I always thought that was one of the best parts of those games! Haha..

The thumbnails look amazing!

 

Sierra Online was a huge inspiration for the type of games I wanted to make back in the day. King's Quest is another I'd love to see ported.

Thanks!

 

I pretty much love all the early Sierra games

I would like to see Space Quest, Police Quest, King's Quest being ported to the ColecoVision

But we would definitely needs a keyboard for those titles...

Though, I heard a certain CollectorVision Phoenix will have keyboard support..... ;)

I use photoshop for all of my pixelart for a number of reasons. I like using a layer of pure blue/green checkerboard to measure misc things. Depending on what exactly I'm looking for, I use different levels of opacity, but I usually just set it at 25%
