[22:16:43] <Malignant_Manor> HiPhish: Could you please do lines for actors that look nice against the original style background for all dolls?
[22:17:32] <Malignant_Manor> I hope we could use an overlay (basically layer) for the two modes and use sprites without the lines for both modes.
[22:18:18] <Malignant_Manor> I haven't been able to talk to Eric yet though to see how efficient the overlay is compared to two different dolls for each character.
[22:18:59] <Malignant_Manor> Aren't everyones lines the same except for Sherry?
[22:21:13] <HiPhish> Yes, everyone has the same lines except Sherry; I originally wanted Sherry's doll to be without any perspective like the others, but she always ended up looking like roadkill :(
[22:22:21] <HiPhish> What do you mean with original style background? The washed out yellow from Ultima VI? The lines I use have the exact same colour as the lines on the original valilla dolls.
[22:24:14] <Malignant_Manor> The lines look smoother against the brown.
[22:24:46] <HiPhish> Yes, I'm sorry, I just checked, you are right.
[22:25:59] <Malignant_Manor> Well, I don't have the underlay with the rest of the lines committed because I hoped to change them so you can't quite see all of the lines.
[22:26:22] <Malignant_Manor> I never realized it would look like that until I coded it.
[22:27:14] <Malignant_Manor> It just looks a bit off. The original isn't great about it either but the original lines look better.
[22:28:56] <HiPhish> OK, this is not so good: the lines are actually part of the image, They are part of the base and I simply drew around them.
[22:29:26] <Malignant_Manor> ah
[22:29:55] <HiPhish> I will have to fix each doll individually. It's not too much work, but I'd rather leave it for later. I still have Katrina's sprite to finish,
[22:30:46] <HiPhish> In the meantime you can ask Eric if it would be better to have two sets of dolls or two sets of lines and I'll get to it then,
[22:30:51] <Malignant_Manor> Alright, thanks. Then it is probably better to just have the doll without lines and a separate shape for the lines (plus Sherry).
[22:31:11] <Malignant_Manor> Okay, I guess I can ask.
[22:31:43] <Malignant_Manor> Performance can trump convenience if it is too much of a difference.
[22:31:44] <HiPhish> I wish I could just use the same lines for Sherry as well -.-
[22:32:46] <Malignant_Manor> Could you please do it for the Avatar dolls as well? Sorry for being such a pest.
[22:35:18] <HiPhish> Yeah, sure thing. The Avatars are no problem, they follow the same template as all the other dolls. For the most part I just have to remove contents and then just fill in a few pixels. It's much easier to fill in a hole than to texture a whole surface from scratch.
