Yeah, a 8bit color galaxy =p

As there is more then 4 colors of black and White (Black, Dark Gray, Gray, White.)
and 4 colors of Pink. and a level of shading Keen is not known to have.

In Short there is more colors then the 16 Colors palette of Commander Keen.

With the help of lemm & ny00123 I'm working on making a VGA version of cksrcmod. Lemm did work to make ModID work with VGAGRAPH files. I modified cksrcmod to use mode x, and ported a bunch of the drawing code from wolf3d (plus wrote some from scratch).

Currently working on adding VGA support to id_rf.c/id_rf_a.asm.

More Color options are Definitely nice!

Although I don't think shading should be more then 3-4 colors
for Pixel art games - as if you go too much overboard it quickly losses the charm

The issue with the picture you shoved, it is Over-shading
due to it, some part of it looks like a low quality .jpg
and Anti-aliasing doesn't look Good on Pixel art. it often becomes very blurry
(at least for someone that prefer the 90's Sprite style)

Commander Genius also have the option to use 32bit color textures it would seem... with optional Alpha (Transparency)
i actually though it was 16bit
as the included "HD" Tile texture for Commander Keen 4 have more then 256 Colors

Good thing I'm writing all this VGA code and not really working on art then.

furan, what's the current status of VGA cksrcmod? I'd like to use it for my upcoming project; it's OK if I can't though :) Thanks!

Edit: also, if I'm not mistaken you're using Windows 10. May your hard drive make an eternal angry clicky sound of death :P Sorry, couldn't resist.

Hello. I have risen from the dead to ask whether any further work has been done on this project.

Very interested to see whether this will come to fruition. Also, I am willing to do work on it if anyone is still interested in creating VGA cksrcmod.
