@albs_br
If you need tools or info about sprite palettes in screen 8 let me know, I could have something ready. The fact that the sprite palette is fixed makes possible a direct brute force search of the 2 colours per line that gives the 3 colours (xor rule) that best approximate a given bitmap line.

Keep it MSX 2+ or higher and please finish the game! This looks just fantastic.

These are the tests I made some weeks earlier, of scroll on SC5 and SC8:

SCREEN 5 (not complete level, but is enought)

SCREEN 8 complete

Screen 11 is even better having seen this Wink
Go for 2+ but, you know, if you go for a commercial release the number of potential customers will be small

this does not look bad considering the more limited screen color. At least maybe you should consider a MSX2 release.

For once we can have a good MSX2+ title... Please don't ask for an MSX2 version because you don't have an MSX2+.
Between emulators and FPGAs, there are many ways to enjoy an MSX2+ game today !

Superb work!

Well I could see the game working with MSX2 (screen 8 version looks great) and if the game detects a 2+ the screen 11 version could be started (or maybe make 2 different releases). But yeah make the 2+ version because it looks amazing!!!

I'm sure the screen 8 graphics can be better using the proper converter tool and correct options. On the other hand, nobody is saying that you should go for the MSX2 version only, both are feasible in my opinion. Screen 8 and screen 11 use the same resolution, I'm not a coder but changes should be few.
