NAPLPS rendered in PP3
My OpenProcessing demo “
autumn in canada”, redone as a NAPLPS playback file. Yes, it would have been nice to have outlined leaves, but I’ve only got four colours to play with that are vaguely autumnal in NAPLPS’s limited 2-bit RGB.
Played back via dosbox and PP3, with help from
John Durno‘s very useful Displaying NAPLPS Graphics on a Modern Computer: Technical Note.
This file only displays 64 leaves, as more leaves caused the emulated Commodore 64 NAPLPS viewer I was running to crash.
The little kite shape
fell out of an arch design I was studying, and I thought it was too nice to throw away. Must’ve been something about the falling leaves that made me choose colours like these.
Here’s the SVG, if you care to:

First frost of the autumn.
The sumachs are beginning to flame, trees are beginning to brown, and I
haven’t seen a groundhog for days. Looks like it’s doing that autumn thing.
Hey little leaf, lying on the ground
Now you’re turning slightly brown.
Why don’t you hop right back on the tree?
Turn the colour green like you’re meant to be.
