    I wanted to make a few splash screens from games I loved in the 16-bit era. I’ve made 2 so far. I plan to make some more. Use them for whatever you want!

    Woop, didn’t add the second one for some reason? Hopefully I don’t double-post this.

    I especially like the Sonic one! Would be great if both of these could be added to Sur0x’s plash screen ramdomiser

    Here’s a ‘Legend of Zelda – A Link to the Past’ RetroPie Splash Screen. I like it as it is, but would some people like to have the full RetroPie text, rather than just ‘Retro?’ (Retro just fit properly). I can make these things, I’m just not great at designing them. 😛

    Yeah video is supported. Typically mp4 files. Functions the same way as a normal splashscreen.

    Oh shoot, I haven’t done a game splash screen in a while. Haha. I still have Starfox and some others on the back burner. I should probably get back into it. Still need to finish this HD Megaman X splash screen + movie I was working on.

    Ok, this isn’t 16-bit, but for the sake of making a billion posts for splash screens of mine, I’ll post it here.

    Gameboy Tetris

    Here’s Tetris for Gameboy. It’s pixel, but done differently than others since the Gameboy has such a tiny resolution. So I put pixel separation and a slight glow around the edges of the separation to emulate the LCD screen. And sampled colors from photos of a Gameboy screen. So hopefully they’re accurate.
