Perhaps because it's disproportionate from the original.
The coloring's pretty nice, but why not just edit the original sprite?
I wanted to make him look more apelike. I did use the original sprite, but distorted him purposefully.


PS. email thecavestoryprequel@gmail.com for questions, comments, concerns. Also I can officially say that if you request via email, I can let you be a beta tester of the game.

PPS. If you do request for beta, I will put you on the list of beta testers, but the early build will be ready by April.

Man, you have just revived one severe argument on what he really is (Translation: Miakid's human, move on with it).

My theory is that Miakid is human, but the crown distorted him over time. I called this "The Gollum Effect" on another thread.

No excuse for his eyes being at the top of his head and his mouth being on his chin

Your game isn't out. What am I supposed to complain about exactly?

I fixed the sprite, but decided to change it back because it looked better. The demon crown covers his forehead so his eyes are lower than they look. And I am using jpgs and pngs for the sprites.

You can't use both types at once, and i'm not even sure you can use jpegs or pngs
Jpegs would ruin your game though

Gifs (static gifs mind you, since some people are foolishly convinced that the gif format exists solely for animation), 8-bit bitmaps and 8-bit pngs are 100x better than jpegs for this sort of thing because they support indexed colours and preserve the quality of the image.

Essentially if you ever want this game to look even remotely decent then stop using the jpeg format altogether.

not that anything in that list other than 8-bit bitmaps will work for a cave story mod, mind you

Yeah, but this isn't a mod. So as long as the format is lossless and supported by MMF then it doesn't really matter.

You can use both. And yeah... I should use better formats.

Thanks for the advice!

Edit: I have Windows 8, which does not support 8 Bit BMP

Here is a list of what Windows 8.1 supports:

Monochrome bitmap
16 Color bitmap
256 color bitmap
24 bit bitmap
JPEG
Gif
TIFF
Png

As you can see, so 8 bit bitmap ( I remember it on windows 7)

An 8 bit bitmap is a 256 color bitmap. Also Cave Story mostly uses 4 bit bitmaps (16 color).
