Here you can find side projects of the staff and great projects which we think should get extra support. (Note that featured projects are not projects by staff members of MaxCoderz)

Well, technically it took a subset of a large image, scaled it to 96x64, and mapped it to the screen:

The sprite routine should be similar, but to a smaller scale (no pun intended ;) ). Though, I will have to take masking into account.

I'm not sure whether you're talking about F-Zero or the image scaler, but both use direct input.

Well i dont think he is using a delay, but it is rather complicated and im pretty sure the step size is very small.

I'd say run with this even with the speed issues. Something like this could revolutionize splash screens or game cinematics.

After an intense spriting session, I now have object rotations! I set up an object which moves and rotates, as shown:

I also added the ability to go backwards and "strafe" left and right, as you might have noticed in the screenshot.

Hooray, I have now added grayscale! Who cares if it's 3-level, it still looks nice... :P (Believe me, it looks awesome on hardware.)

Glad to see this project back in motion! You think you can just make the side roads checkered and when you move it would appear like its GS?

The thing is, if I do that it won't end up as dithered onscreen. It'll still be in perspective.

I'm unsure if this constitutes a bump, but...
