I noticed you put up more Mischief Makers maps, and I have a question about the game's logo you used. How did you rip it? Which version did you get it from? I ask because I went and ripped it from the US version, and noticed that there were very slight differences in the gradients, and some of the colors were different, but otherwise the logos were pixel-perfect matches. I'm curious to see if this is a subtle version difference, or if there is something else at work here.

I just turned on PJ64, changed the graphics plugin to TR64, loaded Mischief Makers, and started dumping tiles from the the N64 logo.  The game version is (U) [!] on PJ64 1.6

Weird... I did the exact same thing, and yet we got two different results.

Graphics Card?  Image saving program?  Just a different machine?

Hmmm... now I have to wonder about the fidelity of my other rips...

Oh come on now.  I'm sure it's something simple, like the machine it was ripped on.  My computer is really old.

Super Bonk

It's all done and was really a lot easier then I thought it would be.  The only tough map was the solar system map since everything moves.  I've moved on to Star Ocean which is gigantic and hellish in comparison but I'm doing good.

Star Ocean!

Ugh, what a monster.  Glad that's behind me.  Treasure Hunter G goes next.

The first few areas of Treasure Hunter G are done and god damn it's a hard game to map.  Had I tried to do this earlier I would never have had a chance.  All maps require the use of bgmapper along with screenshots to dig out hidden spots the WTW code can't get you too.  When there are animations they come in fancy layers that require multiple unique codes to freeze.  There are battlefields artfully hidden in every area and the background black melts into the foreground black.  For a cute little game it's just tough as nails.

Treasure Hunter G!

Ouch, this one was a hell of a project.  I'm thrilled I got through it and amazed I'll have Live A Live done shortly too, phew I'm exhausted.

Live A Live!

Holy crap, It's done.  Another big rpg.  Now I'm totally burnt.  No more mapping for a while.

Take your time and rest for a while. Considering how much work you've put out recently, you deserve some time off :).
Current project that are on hold because job burnout :
-Drill Dozer (GBA)
-Sonic 3D Blast (Genesis)
-Naya's Quest (PC)
