This is what The Precinct looks like from the outside. It is located in a popular ethnic shopping strip, next door to Mr Lowinsack’s famous bagel emporium (soon to include a new espresso machine!).
Test includes dusk, dawn and late night colour schemes. As you can see, I’m implementing an actual “night” colour scheme for the characters (as opposed to just using Flash’s “tint” settings to darken/bluify them).
Personally, I prefer the handdrawn backgrounds I did for Herman, The Legal Labrador to this Flash-drawn one, but as yet I don’t know of a good way to implement them without getting nasty bitmap-juddering and flickering when trucking and panning. Probably I need to work on the bg design a bit more.
