Potential Problems?

Here’s what’s done so far:

Better? The left side has dithering and the right doesn’t so you can compare them.

EDIT: Made a few more tweaks and realized there’s glass between the railing. <_<

So I made a separate glass sprite, because it’ll need to be transparent.

What’s with the random ? up in the corner?

Also, the pedestal on which the rails and stairs and stuff lay looks HORRIBLE. That shading is just… blagh. I don’t even know how to fix it…

Mabye making it look 3d would help? It could either kill the supermetroidness or look great.

The screenshot is taken directly from Gamemaker. The “?” symbol is actually an object, but it has no sprite; so Gamemaker gives the object a “?” symbol as a placeholder so you know where the object is.
