1.3 NES Recolor Pack

Postby BackwardsPigeon1985 » Mon May 13, 2019 5:21 pm

Download this if you want, if fine if you don't though, it was lazily and poorly made.
In this pack there's (mostly) 8-bit versions of hopefully all the non-hardcoded assets for the 1.3 version of SMBX.
There are two downloads for this pack, a full version with many different tile & BGO recolors, NPC variations, playables, backgrounds and more, & a smaller version with just one of every basegame file for you to copy and paste into a level with greater ease since the full one has a ton of folders.
some of the graphics don't conform to the 3 color + transparency rule of the NES so that they would look better but if they bother you enough you can just recolor them, I don't mind if you do.
Screenshots. Note: some screenshots are altered digitally so that either multiple playable characters or multiple block variations can appear in the same screenshot.

Perfection over everything (some colors hurt the eyes though)
The only thing I don't like is the SMW worldmap Image

The tiles look like the original but brighter
Doesn't look like NES graphics (just the grass part, the rock part is okay)

In my opinion some of the backgrounds look way too... Noisy. I think it's due to the high contrast.

To be honest with you, they don't look that "ultimate" to me....

You can't just recolor assets using the NES palette and call it a day, some of these look really ugly to the eyes, especially the backgrounds and the SMW assets, or basically anything that used to be not NES that you recolored;

Some of the stuff in here DOES use the old sprites and that's good, but everything else just looks off

dithering is used to blend 2 colors together, so black should not be used for dithering. I understand that black was used to shade things in 8 bit, but still.

If it makes sense then it must make dollars

Everything looks very bright, there's a very high contrast, specially in the backgrounds. Though I always liked full recolors and this one isn't an exception.

The only opinion I'd have for this pack is that the backgrounds are kinda ugly. I think making some of the objects in the background like the mountain or the hills a single color would make it look less hard on the eyes.
Have a lenny. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I have come back in SMBX Forums. Finally! :D

Did you seriously rename the thread from "Ultimate NES pack" to "Shitty NES pack"

Backwardspidgeon are you serious

We legit gave some feedback and suggestions and rather than aknowledging them you're just gonna change the title of the thread?

Edit: you also changed the description, this is not a "piece of garbage" and we can't just "move onto the next thread" :/

I'm all about the retro graphics but I'm not good at making them myself so I like seeing posts like this. Nothing shitty about it, a few of the backgrounds as said might be too bright.

While most of these look good, the backgrounds, more specifically, the SMB2 jungle background, are a bit sore on the eyes. As mentioned, the contrast seems too high. I would perhaps lower the amount of colours in some of them, see if that makes them look a bit better. But other than that, they look quite nice, well done.

I know there was a tacky NES beta version of SMW for the NES. Colors are bright and tacky and sucky in that game
But hey! first person to create GFX for that XD
