    @MarkeyJester it seems to me that that's an image being displayed through the Mega Drive (possibly the 32X) But the conversion seems far more clean than say that of Retro Graphics Toolkit. I've also theorized that you broke parts and had them use different palette lines. The art does use a small amount of color variation after all (Pink, beige, white, red, gold) But I'm probably wrong, so, tell me your secrets.

    Considering it looks like he took a photo of a TV, I'm guessing it's a direct-colour DMA. Not the kind of thing you'd get running in most emulators.

    No, the reason I took a photo from hardware was because the colour on emulators is really poor, and the ones that are good at it, have bloody interpolation filters. This is nothing to do with that above, in fact, using that method would remove quite a bit of the details in the image. Furthermore, I wouldn't show off something that's already well established, there would be no point other than to brag.

    Art is still in development. This is why the blocks are so repetitive overall in the foreground.

    @EMK-20218 That looks pretty good, I like the background in particular.

    @Novedicus What is Sonic & Friends anyway? I can't find anything about it, let alone the download link.

    @EMK-20218 This is some beatiful art, but heck, those BG buildings look so JPEG-ish, I can't even say why, but maybe it's because of your color choices. Overall, I love when people do custom tilesets, and this one looks really awesome for an unfinished one!
    P.S. Just take a look at this building.

    I prefer the low quality buildings actually; they're supposed to be far off in the distance, and the blurriness gives the illusion of unseen details.

    Updated. Foreground is made a bit less repetitive and foreground details were added.

    (The latter video has some encoding issue, the scanlines mess-up and there's some weird stuff going on with the frame rate. I tried to convert it to a more failsafe codec before upload, but those gave an even worse result at times (or whatever the proper terminology is, you get the point). Only WMP managed to play it right. To be fair, trying more alternatives at the time just didn't seem worth it)
