Well normally I do all my sprites on MSPaint which is why I got into the habit of saving things as .png
But for this, I needed to use Photoshop.
Photoshop Elements actually. I'm too cheap to have the real Photoshop. This version doesn't have the Pen tool so I trace over using the Lasso tool and Fill. I actually make the details pixel-by-pixel blown up by 200% When I shrink it down it automatically dithers it. Then I save it as .png

Are you a student? Ask if Adobe offers some special-priced version of Design Premium.
I just got one such offer: get Design Premium for one sixth the price of the normal education version. Not what I wanted though - not when they decided to sell me Studio 8 (Fl+Dw+Fw+Ct) for US$25 just right after CS3's release. Too bad I didn't have sufficient cash and all my money was spent on the DVD-RAM I have now that I'm not even using due to unsufficient IDE space - I'll definitely spend less-than-a-game's price for some actually useful software as opposed to the makes-users-frustrated CS4.

Here are my ideas.
28 A snowboard viewed diagonally. 32 The right side of a Cubivore 38 Famicom Musashi-Banashi symbol 39 A briefcase? 40 A checkered flag 41 Disk-kun 42 Gamecube controller 43 Bat wings. A cross makes more sense, but it would cause trouble. 44 Either a paw print or the right side of a puppy's head. 45 A star with a circle around it. Based on the pearls collected in the game. 46 Two boxing gloves punching each other like on the title screen of the Punch-Out!! arcade and the Punch-Out!! Wii logo. 47 The large tank seen here. 48 49 50 Either the Gun Sword or the crosshair seen in the game 51 The front side of the drill 52 53 54 The plug on Chibi-Robo's tail 55 The symbol on the body of the ghost name D 56 Three men that look different from the Ouendan and the Elite Beat Agents. 57 A Japanese castle shaped like this one. 58 The T Tetrad. It is usually behind some Tetris logos. Also, "T" is what "Tetris" and "Tetrad" stand for. 59 The Crystal seen here and here. 60 Either a brain or Dr. Kawashima's glasses 61 Famicom controller. 62 Either a Mii's body or Sports equipment like the Sports series icon on bottom-left corners of Nintendo's NES Sports games. 63 Chef's hat 64 An angel 65 Anything pixelated 66 67 Sports equipment. See Sports series icon on bottom-left corners of Nintendo's NES Sports games. 68 F-Type viewed on its right-side 69 The trophies seen on the menu screen of Pilotwings 64. 70 A stack of majong pieces 71 A revolver. Nintendo of America changed it to the NES Zapper to make it look like a toy gun. 72 Any limbless droid that's different from all of them that are seen in the game. 73 A large empty circle with two small full circles on top. See on certain parts of the Japanese logo here.
Um sorry I haven't been updating, but I'm actually going to use these emblems for another project I'm doing!
That's right, I've been working on something else for this.
Anyway, for Punch-Out I want the emblem to be the symbol to be the Major Circuit symbol from Punch-Out Wii. The one you see when its loading, there's two fists and a star. Can anyone find me a picture of that, or get a screen shot?
EDIT: Never mind I just scanned the back of the instruction booklet.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
