Does anyone here collect 4-bit/16 color CG or perhaps even make it yourself? If you don't know what I'm talking about think PC-98 or see pic related. Missing files >>1801

If anyone can find lossless versions of these two, I'll draw your waifu or whatever in 4-bit. Missing files >>1362

I based my own collection on this, but it's missing a lot of uncensored CGs, UI frames and animations.

Does anyone have the FreeThought/AnimeNation Hentai Flood CDs listed on this page: https://web.archive.org/web/19980425025120/http://animenation.com/freethought/freetarcol.html

It would be really nice to get hold of that retro collection of over 9000 Hentai images.
Indeed it would. I'll see what I can find.
Dunno if they count but the sample files from Corel Draw 2.5 could fit here... Missing files >>1365

I love these types of images. I don't think these are PC-98 but they have a similar style Missing files >>1366

>>421 Do you have the original PNGs? Or at least the name of the games these pics came from?
>>411 There's something more charming about these than most of the vector art you see nowadays. >>421 I like these ones too.

Got it from e-hentai and used lospec upscaler
>>2477 >upscaled Yuck
>>2336 The problem is the originals are essentially pixel art, just at a very high resolution. They work with the limited pallette to make a very eye-popping image that grabs your attention. The remake is just basic current year digital art, plus some censorship.

>>152 I found something in the internet archive. I'm completely clueless as to which format that is and how to open it though. https://archive.org/download/PC88-image-collection-1817

>>2336 I really love those sharp lines and deep shadows. A stark contrast to the washed out, expressionless modern character expressions seen in your comparison. Just another example of what we lost with modern CGI and of how limited ressouces nessesitate higher creativity. I just adore this grainy computer art. Some of that stuff I could print out and hang on my wall.

Check out the "4bpp" and "pc98" tags on boorus.
Absolutely beauty in one of it's most majestic forms. >>2652 This took me back, I hadn't seen it since I was a kid.

(Tips stolen from 4-ch /img/ for finding /retro/ images:) * FTP servers. Find them with Mamont or NAPALM * eMule. Go for *.zip files, since they preserve file modification dates. Good keywords include "HCG", "9801", "PC98", "画", Japanese titles of 90s anime. * DC++. Again, look for *.zip files especially. * Google/Bing/Yandex image searches. Add the "gif" keyword to bring up more old pixel art. I use wget to save files with their original dates.
>>2748 >FTP servers. Find them with Mamont or NAPALM Nice tip anon, those are very handy.
>>2748 I'm glad you found my post useful! You all can also check demoscene archives, cd.textfiles.com, and the ISO images on archive.org. Unfortunately, file sharing networks are dying, and FTP servers are going offline. I decided to share my collection before any more is lost. Please see https://www.mediafire.com/file/0ebx6topeudnee8/retropics1996.zip/file You may need to IrfanView to view some of the images in more exotic formats. Some are NSFW.
>>2766 MediaFire is good and all, but consider mirroring your files on the Internet Archive (archive.org) for long term storage.
>>2766 Appreciate you sharing it even if I already had the small amount of Japanese CG in it.
