I used this one online:
https://online-converting.com/image/convert2bmp/

I had a bit of trouble trying to get restrictive BMPs in Photoshop, so for all of mine I started as JPGs, downconverted to restrictive PNG, then to BMP 8 bit, then used the converter. I'm sure there's a much easier way, but that's what I did :/

Keep 'em coming, folks!

Just a reminder to use 24bit BMPs. My scripts look for 24bit and I have to manually convert otherwise. Thanks.


Oh sorry, sometimes it only gives me the option to save as 8 or 16 bits bmps, I’ll see if I can convert all the ones I’ve done.


No need. Moving forward it would be great if they're 24bit. I've already converted all of yours.

The file format needed on the SD card with be a highly compressed binary file. I'll eventually post all of those and probably a Matlab .m file that shows how its done.

Tried to come up with something as well. The black text on the bottom is meant to be printed by the firmware, filename probably?


Awesome. I'll give it a go to replace the text at the bottom with the on screen font.

Another label, Space Invaders.
I'm trying to do every game, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist and tend to be slow ahah

By the way, I'm glad you liked the banner. Hope the idea to use it in a different style for each game suits your aesthetic taste :)

Cool designs everyone! I appreciate the variation.

I made a couple of more designs and a slight update to the space invaders label. I had actually done the "alternative" Teleroboxer one but was hesitant to post it as I'm not a particularly good pixel artist. Here it is anyway :)

I might do another one or two this weekend, but I think the ones I've done so far gives a nice picture of what my vision for the whole set it. Again, all will be tweaked before any final "release". Feel free to critique/feedback if you have any!

I think going forward i'll keep using the black background. It will make the set more cohesive.

Wow, everyone has been doing such a great job. The labels are even more impressive than I hoped.

There's a week left. I'll down select on May 1st, as I mentioned at the beginning. I have decided to give away 2 free HyperFlash32 carts. There are just too many good ones to choose from. I will also give a link cable and a VB USB controller adapter away as secondary prizes. So 4 prizes in total. I'll let the secondary prize winners choose which one they want (link cable or controller USB adapter).

I'm going to put the art into two major categories. Original art, and labels that look more like physical VB cart labels. More or less most of the labels fall into these two categories. I know some can qualify for both but I'll place them in the category that I think gives you the better chance. The top pick from each category will get a free cart each. And if you've already purchased, I'll refund you but hold your place in line.

I'm thrilled that there will be so much great art available for the community to share and load onto their HyperFlash displays. It's very motivating to see the effort everyone is putting into these. Keep up the great work!

Here it is - my final batch. I Thought it'd be cool to convert some of the patents, and I had a little fun with some mashups (even though they might not actually be useful).

With these I've accomplished everything I wanted after I expanded my initial scope (which expanded again a few times throughout all this), and now I'm fully satisfied with what I've managed to do


I really like the megaten series, even though I've only played one game, so I did the boxes for Jack Bros, with some changes (for the Japanese one I tried to get the side bit to look like an obi strip). The one with the baseball teams is a bit messy because it was pretty quick and I didn't bother cleaning it up. Last but not least, I thought it'd be fitting to end off where I started by doing some more for Innsmouth No Yakata.

Tomorrow I'll compile every one I've done, over 60 by now I think, done over 16 days (14 days where I did at least a little bit, and 2 in between somewhere when I took the day off) into a folder (I'll make sure they're all 24bit and are appropriately named), and also release a few things I had to do for all the e-ink art, stuff like art from manuals with the backgrounds removed (in a separate post to this one).

Oh, and thanks DeAthWaGer for the link to the converter, and especially to Kevin for all the work you put into making stuff like the Hyper Flash (I hope you like seeing the VB character where I incorporated it).

A little behind on these and going out of order. Here are a few from KR155E. Very nice designs. Really like the Spong one.

Down selection this Friday! It's going to be hard to choose for sure.

I'll take entries until the morning of the 1st. Once I wake up, I'll have to close entries. Just FYI, that's usually about 6am Pacific Standard time.

:-)
