I block in the colour (super fast) then shade with 40% transparency in layers, so colouring is quite quick. Compared to inking with the tablet, which is sloooow, but looks quite nice. I'm still learning to shade properly. It's all new to me!

I don't remember trees in the Mappy ga- oh god MAPPY LOOK OUT
Still super cool these are. Also I just read about your Momo shenanigans, that really really sucks. It's also the reason why I'm a paranoid asshole and make like a billion 'beta' copies of everything I do
It was a nightmare of a weekend! My plan to finish at least two more was scuppered entirely!
For those who only follow here (are there any of you?), I drew Wonder Momo, I finished Wonder Momo. I drew a background which was rather nice. I hit save and got the blue screen of death!!!. My laptop has been struggling a bit lately, but this was a new symptom in its slow decline.
Anyway, a quick restart and it hadn't saved my last changes (the background). A pain, but not the end of the world. I drew the background again, saved it again, seemed to work... but no! Another sudden restart, and the discovery that this time the layers had been corrupted and strange colour banding had appeared across it!
So, with a frustrated sigh, I decided to manually restart and see if I could recover any more of the file before trying to fix it up. Nope! This time Windows decided to wipe the whole file! Everything I'd done! All sketches, inking, colours & shading, the background, everything! Hours of work deleted because I had the gall to try and save it!
Suffice to say, my frustration level was FUCKFUCKFUCKITYFUCK!
But never mind, because later that day (yesterday) I went and upgraded. To a shiny iMac! Before I can continue I need to sort out my software and hardware. There's also a risk that my TV card will work on the Mac, which means you might have to suffer some YouTube videos from me. Mwahaha!
But yes, there's a slight delay before I can continue, and annoyingly I am away this weekend so I can't dedicate as much time to it as I'd like to. But we'll see!
Momo is coming, and hopefully will be even better the third time round!
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...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
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.
