Old Omnimaga intro screen by Spellshaper
« on: May 10, 2011, 07:39:19 pm »
Wow I just found this on Cemetech again now:



This is from late 2005 or early 2006 and was meant to be used as a screen before splash screens in games. However, not many people including myself were fans of wasting 2 bytes of memory just for a splash screen showing that the program was made by Omnimaga team. It still looked cool, however, and I thought I would share it here.

I don't even remember from what game was the right sprite from O.O

There is another one in the program called Draw'N'Map, I believe, in Omnimaga archives, but it shows extra sprites and says The Coders of Tomorrow instead. I'll post it here if I can.

That logo looks awesome O.O And you mean 2 kilobytes, right? Two bytes doesn't sound too bad ;)

Nice splash with grayscale :D

It fits on 2 bytes? We all wish it does. :P

Yeah I meant 2 KB. My bad. It used Rigview so the size was variable, but usually remained high enough.

You know, if TI incorporated that as a part of the OS and added a token command to call that screen, it would be two bytes. And worth it, too ^^

I doubt they would add stuff promoting a site about calc game development today. O.O

Awesome! I might use this, but idk for the grayscale. The FF adventure chars look nice!
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

I believe I had a grayscale version of the other one somewhere but I don't remember anymore. It shouldn't be too hard to convert, though. Also RLE compression might be welcome.
