Double Resolution is Here
April 20, 2010 § 11 Comments
This week’s blog update comes as a very special announcement. I am officially declaring that I am going to use the double-res hack on my mod. I’m very excited about it and the opportunities it provides me to put in tons of extra detail into the graphics. I have also decided that the code for this hack will be held, by me (and GIR) and will not be distributed freely. This is because the code is written so that it would require no effort to create a sort of “Wiiware on PC” type mod, and this is to be strongly discouraged as it would hurt Pixel’s feelings, or so I’m told. Obviously that wasn’t my intention but it was the easiest way to make it work for my mod.
The thing itself has been basically finished for quite a while, but there was a bit of diplomacy I decided to put myself through first. I don’t really have much to say about that other than I never really got a response so I decided for myself what would be best. I really enjoy the extra detail, and although it will mean an overhaul of every graphic in I’ll use, I think it will be worth it. It’s also pretty exciting and all, which is great because it makes me more enthused to get work done on it.
Also, before anybody complains, the King sprite is a work in progress, I’m not entirely happy with how it looks at the moment. Also, by popular demand, the caution sign is easier to read. I hope.
Finally, I forgot to mention at first, but I would have never been able to do this without tons of help from GIRakaCHEEZER. He deserves some credit too.
