Это объявление от Yerzmyey утонуло во время Forever, поэтому стоит напомнить:
While this year edition of International Vodka Party we would like to organize a graphic compo especially for ZX Spectrum Evolution (320x200 in 16 colours out of 64-colours palette, each pixel can have its own colour).
You don't have to be an owner of the machine (nor the compatible - ATM Spectrum model), the format is simple: ***BMP*** file, 320x200 resolution, 16 colours on the screen (out of the 64-colours palette of ZX Spectrum Evolution).
You can recognize easily that the final file format is OK: the BMP file will be exactly 32118 bytes long.
This gfx-mode is available for Spectrum world since 1991, but it wasn't used very often. Which now changes 'cause Eva is the only reasonable choice if one wanna get a new ZX model.
2 pictures per author allowed.
Unlike the converts – converted pictures are NOT allowed at all.
We provide You a "zx_eva_palette.pal" file that You can load into Your favourite PC (and Mac possibly) gfx-editor and draw the compo picture(s).
Example of loading the palette file into PaintShop:
COLORS / LOAD PALETTE and... yes, "OPEN" file. Still, You can use only 16 colours out of those 64 ones.
Check out the example BMP files, too.
DOWNLOAD the palette FILE and example-pictures!
Send Your works to yerzmyey AT poczta.onet.pl
Sending 2 versions - signed and unsigned - might be a reasonable choice.
********Deadline - 16 August 2014********
Note: if You didn't get any confirmation from me, that means I DIDN'T GET YOUR FILE!!!
Note 2: We consider also making an on-line voting for everybody, after the party.
Note 3: You can send as well the TRD/SCL 256x192 RGB format pictures (called also "8color" or 3"color" sometimes) but remember You can use there only 8 colours of standard ZX Spectrum palette, and such pictures will compete with Eva's pictures, so it might not be a "fair fight" (although the RGB gfx-mode is stable on ZX Evolution - it doesn't blink).
