These are a good idea if you only plan to use your laptop for light notetaking, or if you need a backpack-friendly machine to supplement your bigger one at home. These usually tend to run smaller, and heat up more easily.
hi! when making stuff in aseprite, what type of image file produces the highest quality? on a piece say 64x64 pixels. png, jpg or jpeg?
Png. I talk a bit about it here:
Also important to know:
Ironically Tumblr also interpolates with bicubic or bilinear so these tutorial images look blurry because they were downsampled from 638px original to 540px tumblr width. Here’s the original GIF for pixel perfect viewing, although if you’re on any sort of retina display (or equivalent) the browser will double the resolution (to match the denser pixels) and blur things again.
To circumvent that you need to see it on a website that has pixel scaling enabled in their CSS (like mine, when you go to the actual site, not on the Tumblr dash), or use an extension for your browser that injects that CSS into any page (like mine, safari only, but you can find similar things for other browsers I suppose).
And that’s the story of pixel art formats and quality and the internet.
This is for the anon with the macbook! :) My game was being really laggy as well, but whenever I checked my settings in the game, I noticed that the Retina Display box was checked. So I'd make sure that's not whats causing the lagging! It has to be unchecked for there to be minimal lag. I don't know why it causes lag, but it unfortunately does. :)
Cinder launched up from her chair, nearly toppling over when she forgot about her missing limb.
Steadying herself with both hands on the table, she managed an awkward bow. The retina display sank out of sight.
“Your Highness,”she stammered, head lowered, glad that he couldn’t see her empty ankle behind the tablecloth.
The prince flinched and cast a glance over his shoulder before hunching toward her. “Maybe, um…” –he pulled his fingers across his lips –”on the Highness stuff?”
