So, I've decided to spend some of my free time fixing the medals a bit. Not all of them though, only those that had a shadow effect that doesn't blend well with the Dark skin on gbatemp.
Example:
OLD:

NEW:

Here's the download link:

Some of you might not like this change, so I've added a poll so you could decide if it's a good idea to implement these into the forum.

EDIT: Added some more lighting to them to make them look more "modern". Here's the sprite sheet for tj_cool.

Preferably both should exist. These fixed ones you've made work better with the darker theme, but if you use the lighter theme then all of a sudden the shadow effects go missing.

Hypothetically speaking, I could just change the shadow to a black-grey color at 20% opacity that will work on both, but that will require the medals to be in .png format since .gif doesn't support transparency. I don't know if the file size difference will affect the performance of the site but that's not my call.

They're probably gifs to make the file size smaller. Not sure how much "heavier" they would be as png. Ideally they should all be combined in one image so they can be CSS sprited.

Or click the "Tempstyle" link in the bottom left corner.
Damn, how could I've missed this?

Actually, I almost forgot that both reporter medals have an easter egg, maybe that's why? Those will have to stay the way they are.

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

    I want the dog also
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
