Oldschool Graphic Compo (similar to ST gfx)

Postby yerzmyey » Wed Apr 02, 2014 7:08 pm

Hi mates,
several people mentioned me this could be interesting for ATARI ST guys.
Below You can find infos about our Graphic Compo - 320x200x16 colours.
The only thing - to load a special palette of 64 colours and use 16 of them on the screen.
We would be very happy if any of ATARI ST artists would take a part.
Kind regards,
Yerz




_________________________
While this year edition of International Vodka Party we would like to organize a graphic compo especially for ZX Spectrum Evolution (320x200 in 16 colours out of 64-colours palette, each pixel can have its own colour).

You don't have to be an owner of the machine (nor the compatible - ATM Spectrum model), the format is simple: ***BMP*** file, 320x200 resolution, 16 colours on the screen (out of the 64-colours palette of ZX Spectrum Evolution).
You can recognize easily that the final file format is OK: the BMP file will be exactly 32118 bytes long.

This gfx-mode is available for Spectrum world since 1991, but it wasn't used very often. Which now changes 'cause Eva is the only reasonable choice if one wanna get a new ZX model.

2 pictures per author allowed.
Unlike the converts – converted pictures are NOT allowed at all.

We provide You a "zx_eva_palette.pal" file that You can load into Your favourite PC (and Mac possibly) gfx-editor and draw the compo picture(s).
Example of loading the palette file into PaintShop:
COLORS / LOAD PALETTE and... yes, "OPEN" file. ;) Still, You can use only 16 colours out of those 64 ones.
Check out the example BMP files, too.
http://yerzmyey.republika.pl/gfxcompo2014ivp.rar

Send Your works to yerzmyey AT poczta.onet.pl
Sending 2 versions - signed and unsigned - might be a reasonable choice.

********Deadline - 16 August 2014********

Note: if You didn't get any confirmation from me, that means I DIDN'T GET YOUR FILE!!!
Note 2: We consider also making an on-line voting for everybody, after the party.
Note 3: You can send as well the TRD/SCL 256x192 RGB format pictures (called also "8color" or 3"color" sometimes) but remember You can use there only 8 colours of standard ZX Spectrum palette, and such pictures will compete with Eva's pictures, so it might not be a "fair fight" (although the RGB gfx-mode is stable on ZX Evolution - it doesn't blink).

Hello,

still some time left to send something. We already have something like 7 works, hence the compo will take a place for sure.
So You can take a risk and draw something for us. ;)

IVP 2014 ZX party results and works

Hello.

22-24.08.2014 there was another edition of International Vodka Party in PL, a meeting of ZX machines' fans (plus all 8bit freakz). People came here from DE, CZ, UK and PL.
They were from ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Commodore and Amstrad CPC scenes.

Except of hard drinking, there were also two ZX competitions:
- ZX81 hires graphic compo
- ZX Evo graphic compo.

The results are here:
http://yerzmyey.i-demo.pl/IVP2014_compo ... ZX_Evo.xls

ZX Evo works are here:
http://yerzmyey.i-demo.pl/IVP_2014-ZX_S ... _Compo.zip
They are BMP and TRD files.
Use ZX Spectrum Evolution or ATM Turbo to display on real hardware (2 RGB entries work also on Pentagon 128 and ZX Spectrum 128, but use ZX Evo for the static screen).

ZX81 works are here:
http://yerzmyey.i-demo.pl/IVP_2014-ZX81 ... _Compo.zip
They are BMP files.
Use ZX81 with ZXpand interface to display on real hardware.

Well, it was great fun. Thanks to all the participants and visitors for a good 8-bit meeting.

Regards,
Yerz/H-PRG
