Title: Sprite Jam 11/4/03 - 22/4/03 *NOTE: date changed*
Post by: Gilbert on 11 Apr 2003, 04:17
This time:
Draw a tilable pattern containing an adventure game character in a non-adventure game environment (eg. platform game, etc).

1. The Size must be 40 x 40 pixels
2. No limitation on colours

See an example here:

(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2139996)

And see how it's tilable:

--EDIT--
Note the period had been extended, that's just because of the Easter holiday and my browser at home isn't really friendly with the boards here (or I'm just lazy...) :p

must it be an EXISTING adventure character?

Post by: Gilbert on 11 Apr 2003, 11:01
Or at least some upcoming adventure game characters well known to us AGSers, otherwise it's difficult to judge whether the character is a adventure game character or not.

That's, er, pretty tough. I can think of tiles for AGS chars, but in another game situation? hm. Tricksy.

Here's my attempt - Super Monkey Kart! (that's supposed to be Guybrush, MI2-era)

(http://www.sylpher.com/gonzo/spritejam1.gif)

This is my first ever sprite jam entry...took about ten minutes, 19 colours. I didn't make a tile image, but it tiles horizontally, although not vertically (as you can probably see).

Not a bad idea for a game actually, if anyone from LucasArts is reading this. Would probably be a huge hit on the consoles...

Can you tile in one direction? ah well, it's his first (to be said in the least patronizing manner possible).

Damn, that is small. Hang on.

Is that Hoagie? Pretty cool sprite.

I realise mine isn't really within the rules but I started it then realised I couldn't really make it work vertically, but decided to submit it anyway as I'd spent 10 minutes on it. They're pretty tough rules to stick to though.

Okeydokey, here comes the sprite:

It's Rincewind, if that's unclear(Who else? ;D ) standing all alone in wrestling ring... (Ok, I'm a fan of Wrestlemania on SNES...) I think there's a tiled pattern there, somewhere...

That matches your signature, RW lol.

Gonzo, yeah, it is a toughie this time. That is indeed Hoagie in

Hoagie Mier's Theme Park Tycoon.

Heh, that depends if it's worth the time. I was gonna animate hoagie there but that would have been a very... annoying task.

Boyd & Mikko:
Wow, I really dig both of them! Worthy winners.

I don't really know about that rince,

I think Flippy's TILE is very good, and very tileable :)

Yes of course. Actually in some sense, ALL entries can be tiled, but if you can make it looks more interesting after tiling it, you're of course get extra score. ;D
Title: Re:Sprite Jam 11/4/03 - 18/4/03
Post by: Rincewind on 14 Apr 2003, 13:49
Aye, I suppose it didn't look that good...  
Oh well... Guess I don't win this time either, then... ;D
Hehe...

Well, after seeing mikko's entry, I decided to make this:

(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)
(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)


(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)
(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)
(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2189948)

Note that I'm too lazy to make a big one so, depending on your browser, the small images can be misaligned and/or out of sync in frames. I know the speed is a bit fast but I won't go into all the troubles of modifying it anymore.

This is NOT an entry of course.

My opinion is that animation is not madatory, but if you can make good use of the tiling property to make an animation, you may get more scores. ;)

Post by: Gilbert on 23 Apr 2003, 04:42
I think it's teh Sims or some sort of RPG/simulation games with an isometric view. ;D

Anyway, there are quite a lot of interesting entries this time, everyone did a good job. But to stick more on the rules, Flippy, Mikko, BOYD, Cerulean and Plasticman made good use of the tiling property. But there must a winner to choose the topic of the next jam:

(http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=2293070)

The reason Cerulean wins is because the sprite is simple and direct, which you can recognize what game the character was in easily (and of course for nostalgic reasons ;) ), oh the animation counts too. ;D

Wow, thanks. This is the first time I've actually participated in one of these, and for the record I think Plasticman's Manny is way cooler. I'll ponder a bit and see what I can think of for the next jam.

Post by: Gilbert on 23 Apr 2003, 06:13
Cerulean won, so he'll decide for it.

I think CJ should make him a mod of this forum then (kinda annoying task for him I guess).
