Thanks, but I see a problem with doing something like sonic.

The problem is that I need to fill a HUGE empty space with a single color or a very simple gradient. WIth a game like sonic there is far too much "noise" if you will going on that trying to copy over that crazyness to fill up the middle part... I just feel it wouldn't work out that well.

Do Sonic levels. You'll need the debug code to be able to fly around and see everything.

When in construct debug mode, you can turn into any object on screen. Even "nothing" so you can have flawless screenshots. You can get entire levels like this.

Yeah, Sonic has busy backgrounds and if you look at a screenshot map, there's actually huge areas of blank space. Stuff on top of nothing and such.

Mario 2 would be really sweet though, or even maybe Earthworm Jim.

I could do the entire level from start to finish and it would require about 3 maybe 4 monitors.

(please don't make me do it)

The method is tiring..

1.) Load game in emulator
2.) move and take screenshots (in game)
3.) load up images in photoshop as new layers
4.) move layers to connect properly (turn down opacity and match up stuff)
5.) erase weird stuff that doesn't overlap properly (most annoying part)

Save as 24bit PNG to preserve ALL quality from the ingame screenshots and since the colors are few, the filesize is small and the quality is great. This is where you want to be using PNG instead of JPG, folks!

Hopefully I've inspired a few people to try this on their own to tackle Sonic ;)
