Description:

Twilight the Diplomat & Basil the Dragon , part I
II →


Took some advice from comments on my first try.
Reduced frames, severe pixelation, and an 8-color palette w/ crosshatch dithering:
looks more like a late-80s/early-90s DOS adventure game now!

I don't expect to get the appearance and nostalgia perfectly accurate for the
'old late 80s/early 90s DOS adventure game' feeling,
but I am still open to constructive criticism.

@JP
Separate palettes for each screen you say?
You mean each scene? Like for example:
one for Twilight walking in cave, one for friends outside cave,
one for closer view of Twilight walking, one for close-up dragon, one for close-up of Twilight?

That does make sense, thank you for the input.
Not sure I want to go back to redo the whole thing again so soon, but maybe sometime.

Actually, I was intending to upload the smaller scene of Twilight's friends peeking around corner of cave entrance.
That was the only part I was really disappointed about, color-wise.
Awkward to have Rainbow Dash's and Rarity's bodies become part of the sky!

@sangf
I feel like the pixel quality is mostly right for the truly old dos adventure games,
though it could perhaps be a little clearer.
If I still redo the color palette for each separate scene, I'll consider reducing the pixel blur too.

it doesn't look like a vga or ega and the pixelation effect doesn't look right to me when it comes to old games idk how old like doom ish time or older they kept the some what the same quality nearly it only starts getting bad if its really small theres not enough pixels (i think)

I miss the show so much
Too much dithering. Regardless of how many colors there were (EGA's 16 or VGA's 256), the palette was optimized separately for each screen, so color gradients looked mostly smooth.

For resolution, try multiplies of 320x200, like 640x400 and 960x600.

Reminds me of the Gameboy Advance Videos. Remember those? They had the same quality as this gif. However it was slightly less sharp than this gif.

Actually, its the color appearance and filtering that I focused on, but yes on resolution too big.

I set the color map to '8 colors' though…
I think it only looks more than that because of the grain filter redistributing colors.
Or its just not really 8 colors…

@toxicitzi
good point.

Too high resolution for 80's games. And if you really want to be authentic, you shouldn't use more than 16 colors.
