Aura maps by Dysfunction colorized
« on: March 11, 2014, 05:49:53 pm »
So I was bored and got reminded of this old project by Dysfunction, last updated in Early 2006 and obviously never finished:


http://www.omnimaga.org/other-calc-related-projects-and-ideas/aura/

so I decided to rip the 5 shown maps out of the animated GIF then tried to colorize them. I also corrected a few mistakes such as misplaced walkway tiles and removed gaps between maps (since the last row of pixels was missing), although in a rather crude way. This is the result, with the original monochrome version shown first:



I believe that Dysfunction used tiles from Star Ocean for the SNES that he converted, but each map were generated with 3 pics containing a 96x24 tilemap each, so the game contained about 255 pics and was 84+/SE-only.

I wouldn't recommend using maps this complex in a calculator game, but I was bored and thought I would give this a shot at colorizing, plus this might bring back some memories to older members. I guess that chunks of those maps could be used for tiles, but you would probably have to give credits to Dysfunction and Enix in the process too.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

My turn, with Dawnbringer 32. I cheated a little and added some colors on tiles above 2 colors per object.

Oh that looks nice :D, I would probably make the yellow tree so they have more contrast tho.
