I started working on this last week ( http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,152888.msg1631168.html#msg1631168 )
but forgot to start a thread. Doesn't look like there's a ton of scenes so this shouldn't take super long (jinx)

This will be my 6th colorization since may (Street Fighter II , Terminator 2, Godzilla, Baywatch, Lethal Weapon 3) , and the plan is to get this one and one more done before 2018 starts

YES! Will be following this!

#3 1 year ago

Pretty fancy!

#4 1 year ago

I was a bit sad I was going to have to sell my SF2 after just getting the color in. This takes the sting out of it.

#5 1 year ago

Awesome!

welp there seems to be a lot of random fireworks, so Im gonna talk with Lucky and Steve about a way to handle them, but I'll work on all the other stuff in the interim.

"Goal" is totally masked, so no matter what the score is, it'll transition correctly.

That looks very good so far. Eagerly awaiting this!

#8 1 year ago

Welp theres gonna be some changes, rappelbox had a good idea for goal, and shoot again is getting the colors adjusted.

EDIT: added changed animations. Shoot again was a little too close to T2, so I changed the letter colors to blue. Goal has been converted to a more "patriotic" Red, white, and blue scheme.

If you are taking suggestions wonder if the blue should be the teal from the rest of the game.

#10 1 year ago

Im always up for suggestions and feed back, doesnt mean I'll do it but I'll listen!

I do have a finite number of palettes, I can change the letters to teal if I can use the same colors on other scenes and what not.

#11 1 year ago

The other main colour is purple, not sure how that might fit into the palette

Well color scheme of the game is teel and purple. Not sure how to incorporate that however.

The crowd is covered in peanut butter.

I don't know about peanut butter but definitely something brown...

Agreed on the use of teal and purple to complement the game.

Also, you seem to be the only one with a grasp on the Pin2DMD editor. Any chance at a vidtorial on its use (esp the new version)? I think there are several of us who want to assist in coloring games but can't make quick work of the editor.

As you know I found the editor terribly clunky and existing explanations/tutorials did not help at all. It always seemed to be the classic defining a word with itself issue... After 15+ hours of trying to colorize the bookcase in TAF I gave up.

#19 1 year ago

Welp, the crowd is brown because Im cheating for colors for "Striker". Hes in the stadium a LOT. More GIFs soon, I worked Teal in, trying to use more purple too.

#20 1 year ago

I could make the crowd greyscale or change colors based on the scene. I thought the brown looked pretty good to be honest, and it cut the work load in half.

That teal ok?

I assumed it was a work around/limitation with the pin2dmd system.

#22 1 year ago

Fireworks are looking pretty good. Heard those might be a problem somewhere!

#23 1 year ago

When striker is in front of the crowd the brown looks a little odd. not sure what other color to make the crowd though...

Oh it'll be a problem. The fireworks are a complex issue.

So much for half the work......

No doubt, but I have work around for quite a few of them. Some, however, are going to be a massive pain in the dick.

Hahahaha, I was wondering if you'd see that.

I'll let others comment. Does anyone else thing this looks cyan (light blue) vs. teal? I'm looking at my WCS, or even photos of it here to do a side-by-side, I see a "greener" hue.

#28 1 year ago

Give me an RGB value and I'll make the adjustment. RRGGBB or hex will both work.

You did not have to change it. Perhaps brown is the best way to go. Maybe as you work on the project you will find a color or idea that you like better.

#30 1 year ago

I dont know if I'll do it for the rest of the already done scenes, but it was easy enough for that one, its just a TON of frames. Worth it to you?

Coloring games is work? [tiny violin]

With a max value of 255... I think we're somewhere in the ballpark of 70, 230, 220 for RGB. I wish the pantones were known. That would make grabbing the teal and purple easy.

This is the 6th one this year so far Recoloring isn't bad at all, redrawing everything for Street Fighter II was work.

You’re talking to the wrong guy to whine about volume

The replaced graphics in street fighter really made it great though. Totally worth the effort. The stock dots are terrible.

Im pretty bad at teaching stuff, the best way to figure out the tools is just download any source files of the games I colored and poke around (except SFII, its not a good learning example). I might write up a tutorial but it'll be pretty basic until you guys flood me with questions :p

The editor , when masking, is basically just an electronic coloring book. Don't over think it!

not really. i will be happy with anything that i get.

Surely somebody in the club has a PMS swatch book... That actually seems like one of those lists many folks would appreciate being compiled. Now I'm wondering if I have one tucked away somewhere, haven't needed it in twenty years.

Now that ColorDMD announces WCS (sigh, how convenient), beg, borrow and steal away

WCS has been underway for a looong time. The fireworks turned out to be a complicated problem so things stalled. Was set to debut at Expo a while before Malenko ever mentioned working on it.

Im pretty sure they've been working on it a while, I thought it was funny that I thought the last set of clues was WCS94 but ultimately it wasnt. And now they announce it afterwards lol. I said in the ColorDMD thread the same thing I'll say here. I am excited to see how it turned out and what color choices they made. Ive only been working on the game (off and on) for about a week and I doubt they could get the whole thing done that fast. I dont care who did what first or what system you prefer I just like seeing colored dots.

I dont like the color choices for Godzilla, but I underdstand it. The grey more closely matches the terrible movie with Matthew Broderick, I went with cartoon green for a bigger visual pop. Luckily if you like their grey (or hate my green) you can DL my files and change the Godzilla palettes to whatever you want.

Those darn fireworks! Appreciate the background info. I was merely being tongue-in-cheek. The more the merrier. Anything is better than orange dots

Well the terrible movie *IS* the theme for the game you're putting the display into, after all.

Agreed, that's why I said I understood the color choice. But the backglass still has Godzilla dark green not grey :cheers:

#45 1 year ago

Godzilla should be green, I don't care what color he is in any reboot movie.

I thought this thread was about World Cup Soccer and people covered in peanut butter?

The brown crowd is actually an accurate representation of many World Cup soccer crowds.

If I have an existing PinDMD on another game, what's the best way to get a new key?
