There's a lot you need to improve on. The floor, the background, and maybe some characters. What format do you use for characters? PNG, GIF, or JPG? The character colors look messy. The background looks off when it's cut. The floor is over the characters there, so you may need to use the floor as panel because it overlaps. Also, you may need to fix the background by probably using the bglayer probably for separating some backgrounds.

Now that I see the screenshots...you should definitely use 640x480 resolution for this.  That's how you fix your image quality problem.

It's all in preference. Personally, I'd have no problem using downscaled hi-res characters, but that's just me.

Anyways. Like the others said, you definately need better stages there. Why don't you try using the ones from the PS2 HnK game? Here, I made a stage background for you... assembled it using one of the sprite packs floating around the net. It's Kenshiro's/Mr. Heart's stage from the PS2 game.

MSPaint. I put the stage together, saved it, then flipped it upside down, set the y to 244, then flipped it upside down again. That's how I did it.  ;D

Did you remove the # infront of video? Because right now, your video.txt has the video command commented out.

I think there're already some sprites available of Hokuto No Ken.I don't know where you get the sprites but they look more pretty and neat than I saw in you MOD.And I don't think 640*480 is the proper resolution.




You need to set it to 800*600.
If you're using graphic scaling I suggest you'd better stop doing it.
