Electric's gorgeous graphics with CopyFault's unique viewing engine made my day today.

@Viscid – thanks! I did have something else planned for X'20 though ;)

Anyway, now when there's a year to wait still I'll prolly work on something extra again – 2-3 pics to choose the actual compo one from… OR most likely be lazy until fall '21 and then finish the pic I had planned in a hurry.

Hey! There were some questions if I could work out a digital print out of this. Would someone here be interested in buying such? Size A1 (840 x 594 mm), quality print, signed & numbered. That'd be like 30€ + shipping (+-10€ inside Europe). PM me if interested.

Only real hw counts, and there the flicker is not bad at all. <3 And, also, who needs Amiga?

Yeah, if I turn down the brightness on my 1084S enough I can get it to not flicker at all, with still being bright enough. Really nice pic either way. Might try something along these lines at some point.

On my C64C + TV (AV) it doesn't flicker or trembles too much, and mostly on lighter regions only. Great work!

This transcends the machine, breaks the pixel wall and becomes a diskcover

@Copyfault I was indeed about to ask if the sprite colours could be tabled as well. So, maybe I'll work on that with the next image on the mode. Would it as well be possible to lace the sprite colours?
User Comment
Submitted by Copyfault on 2 October 2020
It makes me really happy to read some comments on the code:) Thank you all for mentioning!

But ofcourse, code is always/most of the time "in the background", especially when combined with such pure graphical awesomeness!

@Algo: the mode is similar to you MUCSU Hires, but here rather MUCSO (overlay sprites are used). The displayer code does not change sprite colours, but it'd be an easy feature to implement (check out the tons of "waste cycles"-spots in the cycle sheet;))

Brilliant! I'll just leave another 10 here hoping you'll keep your pics coming, Electric.
User Comment
Submitted by Electric on 2 October 2020
Btw, I think it'd be possible to make a converter for the mode (un modé). The hires image should have always the darker option of the two cols for the parts that are under the black. This concerns the screen area of course only, and images such as this which uses black as global colour. In case the global one is different the case will change completely.
User Comment

@algorithm I'm honestly a dropout when it comes to more advanced C64 graphic modes. I really did not think this would be something totally new, but maybe the approach of having the outlines 'separated' is bit non-C64. The idea came from the fact that once you work with hires (with just 2 cols per char) you're always in trouble if you use outlines – black (or dark) already 'consumes' the other colour and then you're left with just one… which usually leads to major colourclashing.

Outstanding, definitely! Some strange coloring here and there, like the body of the bull in light blue makes him look kinda sick.. Then, an entirely purple daog is of course just normal :D. Love it!

I very much love the workstages and the process of creating this. The nipples of the left character have a better outcome in one of the worksteps with a pink/red colouring though :-P

Outstanding picture. Definately a highlight. Take my 10 points.
User Comment
Submitted by algorithm on 1 October 2020
Nice both in grapical quality as well as gfx mode (I believe this implementation was not done before) - 3 hires colors per 8x8 with third color being universal throughout the image - sprite x interlaced) 10/10

Carrion, I considered mostly nothing :). Would've been wiser I suppose, but I still think you can't reach the same result with other modes. I might be wrong though, not a specialist on more advanced stuff. Anyway, after years with pure hires I've again started to try out something else as well. Why I wanted the colours to be stable is the fact I wanted to mix them without flickering.
User Comment

Really Cool!

It looks like it could be NUFLI. Did you considered this mode or not at all?
User Comment
Submitted by Electric on 1 October 2020
Thanks for the comments! This was very much a test on this 'mode' that’s prolly nothing that new – just the idea to use the sprites to make the outlines and hires to do the colouring might be something that has not been done before.

Anyway, the code here is kinda special and having all the extra toppings along the screen area is purely thanks to Copyfault. This flickers too much of course, but I think I'll give the mode another try with something else than black as the 'global' colour.

I just had to view the image on the 1084S, trying different adjustments to reduce the flicker. Great picture and a very clever use of the border!

After a year we finally get this out, this with the help of Copyfault – enormous thanks for the code.

This pic was actually meant to be out at Zoo'19 and it was shown there at the graphics compo receiving 3rd place. However, at the party it did not run properly (lacked the x-shift of the sprite layer) and only the screen area was shown. The release version here is very close to the actual ready 1st version I made, having border splits and sprites in upper and lower border (yes, they’re non-flicker on purpose).

From the package you may find Copyfault's documentation including the code, cycle sheets ++. The ZIP also includes the image workstages.

Also thanks to Ptoing all the help.
