New title image?
« on: April 17, 2010, 01:55:50 AM »
Its a rather low priority thing, but its something cosmetic I'd like to include.

However, since my art skills (computer or otherwise) are pretty craptastic, I'm tempted to simply convert a fan art picture into a 320x240 image, spruce it up slightly, and slap it in.  Here are some of the ones I've attempted though far (quite rough, I know).  These images were easier because they were 300x300 by default :D

Other candidates include:







(ps, can you tell I think chocobos are AWESOME?)

Anyone have an opinion on the matter? These are awesome?  They suck?  They suck, but, philsov, here's something awesome?

I think the current title image is fine, especially since as much I like cartoons, I realize that a lot of people can be graphic whores and be turned off by certain art styles.

You might as well just keep it as is for now.

Unless you are like me (the minority) in assuming that Ramza died and Olan just saw an illusion and are willing to write that into the script more explicitly, I wouldn't pick the first one.
I would not pick the fourth one unless you wish to have a storyline that someone emphasizes Ramza's relationship to a certain generic female squire (which is what that image looks like).

Otherwise, the rest look good but aren't really inspiring.

I'm not feeling any of these, myself.

I can toss you something together in Photoshop if you like, my skills are... moderate, and I'm enough of a perfectionist that it'll at least look fairly decent.

Let me poke around for some images and stuff and see what I can find on that front, at least.

We're in the minority?

The Damned:
Surprisingly yes, though I think much of it is that most FFT fans want to believe Ramza survived and Delita didn't, even the "written history" of Ivalice after the Lion War actually goes in the other direction.  Of course, Square's official pronouncements on this haven't exactly helped us here.  But that's tangential.

What I'd rather see is something like the original screen, or just a happy chocobo staring at the viewer with FFT ASM'd written in the original font.

Well I can offer a picture that is, well it looks fantastic but it does lack a Chocobo (though it does have Worker 8).

Here you go.

sadness can be turned to delight.

ah... that is one that I overlooked.

hm.  If I include the whole picture it becomes too poor quality if I cram it into a 320x240, but if I crop it prior and focus on the center...

Only flub is the Leo thing... gem is probably too stuck in there but I might be able to rub out the white text at least.  Use the top portion to include "Final Fantasy Tactics" and this really has some potential!

And then heres the dedicate picture...

I like the one with female squire actually, you could use Female Warrior sprite from main to make her unique and do some love story :)

initially I was a bit sad to see all the other characters faded away but looking at it more and more its a very nice touch.

Excellent!

Can you post up the base file, mike? :D
