Where Time Stood Still Advert

Anyone know if the following advert is available without that bloody yellow banner in the top left corner?

I don't think so. I've seen it without the green logo in the right corner

Not my call but a bit of Photoshop or something else to make it shine would be a plus, and as you may know Galahad is lazy (me too)

Unfortunately, not what I was after, though appreciate the effort.

I needed the comic strip panes clear of anything, and i've found it on that World of Spectrum Kamelito linked to.

I want to do a basic intro using those comic strip bits, scene setting stuff before the game gets going.

Not having much luck though, trying to get it to look nice for A500 is a chore

Yes, thats what i'm working from, i'm now separating each comic strip panel and touching it up to clear it up so it at least looks ok on A500 Hires 16 Colours, which it is starting to.

Tedious but it'll probably be worth it when its done.... probably!

Glad it's ok - took me about an hour, that did - working from multiple sources.

Superb work there mate, if its okay to attempt to slice and convert these into Amiga pixelart for use with the Amiga intro for Galahad, but cant do them today, will be over the next few days.

If you're asking me, then feel free

The central image is available as a standalone artwork - seen it before but can't find it now. If I do, I'll send it over here.

Aha! It was preserved on WoS - not as large as my other image, but seeing as you're scaling down to Amiga size, this should do nicely:

Thanks Danny already had the box art for it already, and have converted it to 320x240 orientation , just got to pixelate it now and some pixel colour reduction.

Thanx again

this is a test image for the comic strip idea of the first image of the above poster..it's in 16 colours and I have it in Iff format too..so let what you all think of it I think it turned up really well imo.



I removed a lower text strip and will add it to the next image instead as, there is nothing to gap the images together with, from the first to the next with and a single text strip wouldn't look good, unless, the text strips appear first, and then the images underneath..if you get what I'm saying.

Holy fuck, you've done a good job on the portion of text you removed Fucking top work

If you're happy to continue and then send them to galahadfairlightatyahoodotcodotuk, that would be great, much better than my effort

That looks excellent! The only thing I'd do is to scatter the "items" throughout the strip rather than wedged into that blank space, but other than that it's excellent

Ah yes, the second text caption needs a more distinct top border at the top-left, and the shadow on the bottom left edge has a white border.
