Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.

Hmm, it is true. I can manage to keep the edges pixel-y but the inside details become smooth in Photoshop...

I'll do some research to see if I can fix it, if you all deem it necessary.
In my opinion, as it is it's pretty usable, it doesn't have to be an exacy replica, right?
I also provided an alternate color for those who prefer blue-ish metals like me:

Not bad at all, certainly cleaner than what I could've done. I wasn't even expecting people to like my design.

That one looks fairly decent. If it could be "converted" into a pixelated 16-bit style, it would be awesome.

I think I may have figured out how to make a 16-bit style.

But I went too far and made it 8-bit.

At least I do believe I am on the right track.

10/10 top tier.
Tell me your secrets, I want to turn a few things into 16-bit style too, but I don't quite know how.

Wasn't the Genesis 16-bit anyways?

EDIT:

So hey! I decided to do something 200% cheap and just fuse my crap-tier 8-bit sprite with Nickcaibua's 16-bit version
It's not as low-quality as my 8-bit version, yet not as detailed as the 16-bit, it's right in the middle in the quality department.

Just to offer an alternative.

I also snuck some blue metal again

regardless they have same bit limitation, but that doesn't mean they are all same; to me, SNES is always bright and mild. but genesis is darker and rough.

for more information, check this out.

Heh, I was asking myself yesterday when the patches to play Valiant with gameplay mods would start rolling out. I took a crack and look at seeing what all needed to be edited/deleted in the DeHacked file before I saw how involved it was, went nope.jpg, and quit. :v

Definitely going to have to give this a go especially since I'm a Contra fan. C:
