    I don't think the stretch to TV aspect causes any loss in significant detail, not at those low resolutions.

    Look at screenshots for NES compared to PCE/SNES; NES looks much lower in resolution, when it's the same, just has fewer colors. Having more colors available per pixel tends to create more noticeable detail.

    I haven't played any of the EWJs enough to remark, but I'd bet the TV aspect SNES version for 2 doesn't look significantly different than the original Genesis (EWJ1 should end up too fat, though).

    Alright, so as a pixel artist you would choose less pixels to work with over more?

    Having more pixels doesn't matter (at the low resolutions we're talking about) as much as having more colors for each pixel, I imagine. Like I said, the difference from NES to PCE/SNES is just color and the increase in detail is significant (for sprites of approximately the same size). NES creates "more detail" by overlaying sprites to get more colors, for example.

    Does SNES EWJ2 sprite on a TV look significantly "less detailed" than the original Genesis?

    I don't have quick access to an old TV at the moment for comparison, but like I've said before, I do remember the MK2 sprites being more detailed on Genesis back in them days on a composite connection for both (ie. Baraka's teeth are a great example).

    Also, do you think the SNES could replicate those skinny Phantasy Star II & IV sprites?




    Go ahead. Re-draw those sprites in with less pixels and tell me the difference is insignificant.

    Even the same team did dare not make the sprites with less pixels for the original PS on SMS.
