A cool 90's take on Bombshell, with sprites by sebabdukeboss20.

The walking animation at 0:05 reminded me of these girls:

The source images exist (NSFW) for all of the "art", they don't need to be re-created.

They should've processed the images similar to how the original babe sprites were created, instead of simply converting high-color photos to the Duke3D palette and calling it a day. I'm sure the result would've been much more tasteful.[/offtopic]

Sure they should've, but I can't imagine they had the budget or the time (or the manpower and competence) for that.

Couldn't that be done today if all the source images are out there somewhere?

Why have an HRP or fancy renderer for an old game at all?

Some people enjoy taking old games and applying a new coat to them.

The originals were poorly done and look bad.

The HRP I get. Upgrading the game to run and play smooth on a modern operating system I get.

Penthouse Paradise is glorified gameified pornography. I see no point in it when you can literally have that, and done way better elsewhere. Especially when we're talking about the time investment in processing and re-importing all the art.

I've been in the process of creating a little more babe interaction with all the babes in Duke 3d (Atomic Edition will have to wait). They are a surprise show I can't show you. You'll have to wait until Alien Armageddon releases to see them in action.

I did have one babe I'm a little stumped on: the geisha. I plan to keep her in a single view instead of multi angle like the slime babes. I was thinking of an alternate action when you press or hold use on her. Any thoughts? I might just leave her alone since she's more of a statue than a babe.

She's definitely a statue -- the actors are named STATUE and STATUEFLASH. the animation that exists for her is supposed to be a joke.

Also if they were real babes the N64 version wouldn't let you kill them :P

Probably more of an easter egg than a joke. You could make the argument that they are anamatronic.

Just flexing my nuts on the Penthouse debate. Might do the rest in the future. Although I would need the source images.

Since it was brought up in the thread I figured I would contribute what I have collected. Long story short I was working on a PHP HRP a four or five years ago and gave up when my HDD died. After people brought things up in a forum post I decided to see what I could recover from my various backups. I lost the work but I found the sources I was working with. I'm just not motivated at this time to work on this but I hope you guys can make use of it.

Funny with the source images, I could do a better job of the originals thanks to this Gradient map tutorial I found, it makes a huge difference in the quality of the original images

BTW, am I right that the sprites made from photos were not corrected to account for the DOS aspect ratio problem and thus look vertically stretched in the game compared to the source images?

Here's the fun thing I just discovered, When a photoshoot is done, many pics are taken but very few published officially. it turns out that a few of the girl sprites aren't anywhere to be found in a published set, so you would have to settle for a slightly different pose. This is particularly noticeable with the Lydia Schone pics.

Probably not a problem since the sprites are placed in Build and sized accordingly. Whether the mapper has a good sense of scale is a different matter.

Yep, the Lydia Schone pics are the ones that I couldn't find perfect matches. Everything else should be the correct photos as at one point I used the transparency color from the PHP .art files as the starting point of masking out the background in the higher res photos. The only way I think better images of Lydia Schone could be found would to buy a membership to Suze.net as Suze Randall was the photographer of the photoshoots in question. There is no guarantee that the photos in question will be on the site, but I can't think of anywhere else they could be. I thought of buying a membership as a thank you payment to the Duke4.net community, but I don't want to deal with the conversation with the misses when the credit card bill comes in. So I went with the best I could find.

BTW, hopefully not too much off-topic, but anyone have any idea of the source photos of the girls in Powerslave? There are a few (semi-)NSFW pics that are clearly based on photographs, not drawn, like in this or this screenshot by MetHy (originally posted here and here). If the digitised sprites were made in-house by Lobotomy there's no sign in the credits though.

Are those animated or just a static pose?

Some are animated, but I'm not sure about exactly those shown on these particular pics. The animation is mostly just some slight movement, except for a few dancers who have more frames. One dancer can be seen standing on the first pic on the left in the background with her arm raised.

Seeing the recent bump to this thread, I noted that source images have since been posted.
