Pokémon Sprite Decompression Done By Hand

1 Comment
From: Retro Game Mechanics Explained
Duration: 00:00

Donate to The Bail Project here: https://donate.tiltify.com/@retro-game-mechanics-explained/decompress

Don't know what's going on? Check out the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF1Yw_wu2cM

Webapp for decompressing & compressing sprites: http://www.dotsarecool.com/rgme/tech/gen1decompress.html

During this livestream, I will be collecting donations for The Bail Project. The Bail Project is a non-profit organization that aims to pay bail for those faced with unaffordable cash bail. While bail is intended to be used as an incentive to return to trial, in the recent years it has been used unfairly as a form of pretrial detention. After bail is returned, The Bail Project uses the same money to pay additional bail for others. For more information on The Bail Project, please visit https://bailproject.org/ .

Donations will be done through Tiltify, so your money will be sent directly to The Bail Project without going through me first. Additionally, advertisements and other monetizations like super chats will be disabled for this livestream.

It took four and a half hours to do what takes a gameboy eight frames.

Hamster Ball 2

The worst is being teased by responsible, mask-wearing teens. They even spritz the hamster ball with disinfectant before rolling it, carefully avoiding the filter vents.

They laughed as kids, and are chasing him as teens. It adds up. "all those years ago" could be a decade, right?

The age range of humans you would describe as "kids" expands as you get older.

Fair points, thebassman/Outis. Although I *think* "neighborhood kids" does not expand as quite fast as "kids" (not a native speaker but it feels that way to me somehow)

Yeah, good point Outis. I'm in my early 40's now, and I'm sure there are baby boomers in my parents' neighbourhood that would refer to me as a "neighbourhood kid." ;)
