AHL ROM - Team Logos Project Collaboration


Recommended Posts

An AHL team may be looking for a fun NHL'94 way to introduce their season via social media.  In short, I think getting a base ROM with the AHL team logos set up is what would be needed as a start.  There's no need for in depth player ratings, or even roster updates at this time.

I personally don't have enough time on my plate to knock this out, so I'm seeing if there's anyone interested in collaborating.  32 teams, would be better if 4 people knocked out 8 teams each or even better 8 people did 4!  

You can PM me if interested or respond here.

EDIT: ignore, used too many colours

I took a stab at a logo, but the AHL logos are so.. busy.. they need a lot of manual touching up. Needs a proper pixel artist :(

But anyway this one is all set up for importing straight into a ROM (pre-darkened for Tile Molester accurate import)

I had a little better luck by removing the white border around the WOLF PACK text. Will post tomorrow.

For team logos - one color will be white and one black.  Then you have 10 other colors you can use.  4 are unusable as they are used for the home/visitor banner colors.

I guess I'll post this here as a general note. My trick is to use photoshop to create an index colour image with about three times the allowable colours and the then use the colour table option to decide which colours to round up or down in order to adhere to the SEGA palette, but also maintain some sort of contrast when reducing to twelve including the default white and black. Still requires some manual drawing, but at least this way it's 90-95% of the way there.

The other reason[s] for posting is that I used the version of the logo without the word mark. Is there a preference to which to use? I figure in the case of the Moose, Phantoms, Admirals, Ice Hogs, Thunderbirds and Roadrunners, at least they have versions of their logos that don't contain text and that would drastically improve how well they translate in 48x48 pixels, never mind tacking on the twelve colour restriction on top of that.

Well shoot guys. I did up a few last night, but something wasn't feeling right. Slept on it and realized the problem. I was using the wrong number of colours.

I remembered that the bottom 9-16 and the #8 spot are used for logo colours and #6 & #7 are for white and black and #2 & #3 are the Home team banner, #4 & #5 are the Away team banner, but that leave #1, which is, like many other assets, still for transparency.

Shouldn't be too much of an issue to remove the one more tone. Some of these didn't even need the full allotment of colours. I edited the Moose entry already and will post the rest a bit later.

Took a stab at a couple more tonight. Abbotsford and Tucson weren't bad.
Abbotsford.png Tucson.png

But then I figured I should get a word mark one out of the way. Can't say I like the results so far.
Bakersfield.png

Ended up spending about an hour on this one. Even going as far as to start redrawing the text, but halfway through the spacing of that awkward font was becoming a problem, so a new tact is in order. Basically looks like it's a question of what will be the least ugly/most legible. Getting late though so that will have to wait for tomorrow.

I messed up - the first color is transparent, so also unusable.  So it's really 9 colors plus black/white.  My bad!

I CAN'T BELIVE I MISSED THESE POSTS!  I feel so dumb

With regards to the text in logos, I agree, I have removed the text myself if I couldn't find a logo without text.  Sometimes it's not so bad, like the Ice Hogs

Couldn't decide on this one so I took a multiple choice page as well. All use the same 11 colours.

Here's an alternative Admirals logo I found and used because the text was too much.  I think it looks great

And the ice logo (not asking for those here) was the name:

Well now, I was looking at the version of their logo that was just the pig head, but I will say that the detail on the text looks really good here even with the limited resolution.

Just to be clear -- though not posted, Hershey, Rockford and Milwaukee were previously done by me for other leagues:

Is that an older or alternate one? I got this directly from the AHL website.
