tickled by the concept that, due to the use of the rather oddball 512×288 resolution, the PAL version of Vib-Ribbon can only be displayed with correctly-shaped, integer scaled pixels in 4:3 at a minimum size of 1,536×1,152

anyway hi here’s (what would be if social media wasn’t going to recompress it as a mp4 video) 811 KB of Vibri saying “this is what happens when you make a mistake,” an eternal mood which for some reason is only online in shit quality

and if you absolutely definitely need one hundred per cent compuserve gif fidelity
• here’s the original size with square pixels public.drac.at/gifs/vib-ribbon
• and this aspect-corrected one public.drac.at/gifs/vib-ribbon

this is surprisingly difficult to get out of an emulator, I had to use mednafen with `-qtrecord [file] -psx.correct_aspect 0` to get unfiltered video, then ffmpeg with `-vf "crop=w=1024:h=1152:x=236,scale=512:288"` for the original pixels or 1536:1152 for the integer scale

and finally I ran gifscicle at max optimisation and with a 2-colour palette to finish it off, which about halved the size from ffmpeg’s output, phew!

@ticky I appreciate your dedication to bringing us Vibri GIFs *so much*
(that is, I appreciate it a lot, but I also appreciate how much you're giving us these GIFs)

@T045T it has always felt unjust to me how poorly represented her vertices are by low res tumblr uploads! So I decided I should do her justice 😅
