Ghostbusters - just testing

Recommended Posts

I decided to fire up Pinball Browser and start messing around with doing my first colorization.  Decided to tackle the Stern logo first. Deleted the pinball image, drew in Slimer and slimed the logo.  I know it's not much, but it's a start to learning how to do this.

Hi Dazz,

great ! Can you open the binary vpinspa uses ?

There are a couple of things you need to have in mind when editing spike ROMs

- make sure you always keep the macro for your changes
- spike roms only support 3 methods to store palette information
     1.  in-fame (smartdmd tab)
     2.  a single palette for the whole ROM (
     3. switching palette by assigning  keyframes to all colorized scenes with pin2dmd editor

You use the .spk from Stern and then have to extract the image.bin from it.

This is the only frame I've done so far... I'm using Pinball Browser right now.  So, I'm not quite sure what any of this means yet. I haven't had to create/use a new palette, but it looks like I will need one for the next scene.

Yes it is possible to build a .spk file out of the TPA bin.    It's fascinating because it's kind of a hybrid of SAM & Spike - it has SAM ADPCM audio samples instead of the stereo ones the real SPK has.   But PinballBrowser has no trouble with the format.
