[BLOOD] New sprites (Update 11.2.22)

Post by Marcelus »

I'm not a big voxel fan and I like sprites. I'm working on new , not upscaled sprites that replace voxels.
These sprites do not even contain the current nice upscaled pack from Phredreeke.

viewtopic.php?f=354&t=67251

They are not 1:1, but I tried to make them close to the original.
I want to make all the tombstones and TNT barrel.
The first version will be ready in about a week.




DOWNLOADS

TOMBSTONES

Simply put zip file in "blood" folder in Raze and turn Off voxels in options.
If you do not know how install Blood for Raze go here

Mitch will be happy to see this. The tombstones are something I overlooked when making my upscale pack.

Would it be alright if I used these for the next version of the upscale pack when you're done?

I took the opportunity to downscale + palettise the sprites you've posted in this thread.

No opacity masks yet. The HP Lovecraft engraving on the tombstone gets completely lost, otherwise they're fine I think.

Thanks for your contributions

Nice, looks fine. On original sprite also do not see nothing :) . How you palettise ? I try posterize or convert to 8 bit colors but still do not look how sprites from your pack.

In this case, I ran a PSP script that adds some noise prior to downscaling and palettising (applying Blood's palette in PSP)

However, I've made a custom repalettisation script using Imagemagick which I ran it through afterwards. It works by dividing the upscale image and source image into lots of small tiles, and palettising the upscale tile using the colors in respective source tile (it's a bit more advanced than that but that's the short explanation)

yes this is see your packs are not only simple upscale . I am slowly work for pack for Doom 64. For upscale I use G-mic plugin with DCCI2x upscale method and after manually finished

viewtopic.php?f=46&t=71914

I try some blood textures with palettise. This is fine method. In D64 not work good(I do not have good palette) but in blood with blood palette is fine. Is only quick try but result is not bad i think.Photo is with 400% zoom on original and upscale with 200%. Upscaled is 2x.

original


upscale, little manually fixed and palettise


also jojo poster I tryed. After upscale are distort black letters too much (also in your pack). Letters are "new"

Nice seeing you remake the letters in the JO-JO poster. It didn't look particularly good in the upscale.

Off-topic but Doom 64 doesn't have a set global palette, each sprite or texture has it's own palette. You can use Imagemagick to apply the palette using the unscaled image as source.

The problem with Blood is how the palette swaps work in that two very similar colors could map to very different results. Sometimes it doesn't matter because those palswaps aren't commonly used. But in case of the cultists for example, you have one shade of brown for the robes, another for the belt and a third one for the cultist's skin.

I tried to make own palette for d64 sprites but with not much good result. Now I working for new lamp for Blood. Original sprite is crazy small. Only 15x75 px and do not look much good after upscale. Is not finished yet but palettise must you i think :)
