In Topic: Jet Set Billy Gumboot Software ( Colour Genie )

29 February 2016 - 07:53 PM

I started collecting Colour Genie games about two years ago. I don't have Jet Set Billy in my collection but an image of the cassette is available on line. I've created a page for it on my Everygamegoing site.

There's a Colour Genie emulator for the PC called Genieous which is quite good (Link to this is on the same page above) and you can also view instructions on how to convert games back to WAV by entering 'Colour Genie Conversion' as a search term on the Everygamegoing site.

Yes, it has the usual tune and the bouncing Manic Miner introduction.

 

The instructions for it are here:

The map is quite big so here it is as a zip file.


In Topic: Resolution Of Screenshots

Yes, I use Irfanview as well with all my images. Usually what I do is grab everything at natural resolution and then double the resolution for a web page, and create a thumbnail version at 162 width (Don't ask me why, that just seems to be a magic number). Then you have one image you know is always going to be the same width (162px), one which is the actual resolution and one finally that's formatted for the web.

 

One thing I find with Irfanview is that if making a *smaller* image, you get a better quality image with the 'Resample' turned ON, However, if making it bigger (i.e, doubling it), the same function must be turned 'OFF' or else it applies filters and stuff to the doubled image (meaning you can't halve it back to the original again).
