Anything Goes / Re: General Absence Thread
« on: January 20, 2017, 12:32:30 AM »
Post here if you are disillusioned enough to believe you're important enough for people to care about your absence.

I'll be quick.

My father passed away rather suddently a month ago, my family is in shambles, we're barely getting by emotionally.

I got a job that stresses me over, taking away my night time, and I refuse to have a bad sleep pattern because of it.

I have no time to dedicate myself to games, mod development and what not (I'm off work today, sick, as I'm typing this).

For some stupid reason, I've decided I'm disillusioned enough to think it's worth informing people I don't really know that I won't be an annoying part of this community any longer. I would say I'll miss you, but I can't cuz I don't know you that well. I would say it kinda leaves a hole in my heart, but I'm not worried about it cuz I'll find a way to fill it up, I always do.

Recent CBM discussions and watching from a distance as a lurker on the 8BDM Discord server have made me realize how vain it is for me, in my current situation, to care about such things as this in-game community and its forum subset's workings and members, especially with the uninterrupted trend of a number of people downplaying my contributions after years of dedicating myself to it. No worries though, I'm not vengeful: what good is there into making something, if it won't get any use?

If anyone feels the need to ask me about stuff, I'm still willing to help and talk, and I'll try to reply in what little time I can muster to give: I'll stay in the 8BDM Discord, albeit muting it on my end. I've had good talks and laughs, and have met really good people in here. I've seen members of this community grow from being obnoxious newbies, to reach positions of respect I myself haven't even reached nor ever dreamed of reaching. In my years here, I've been surpassed and downplayed by most, and considered and respect by few. In my own view, I'm standing over a negative score on this community, so given my situation I see no point in keeping count any further.

I like it. A little too heavy on toms, but it's cool. Some more polish on the arranging aspect would make it cooler.

« on: December 02, 2016, 04:35:21 PM »
Xenogears is incomplete, and this was usually the fate of XenoRPG games: they are far too ambitious.

While I haven't played Xenogears myself, I've seen plenty of speedruns of it (17 hours, by the way), and it looks to be pretty damn cool and thrilling, though it is heavy on cutscenes. Xenogears really stops being fun when Disc 2 hits: the Chair of Exposition almost inmediately takes over, and you're just submitted to watch cutscene after cutscene after cutscene after cutscene with some little isolated dungeon/hallway walk/fight sprinkled inbetween. If you're invested in the story, then it's not so bad...but it virtually stops being a game for a really long while until a very, very late point in the story, where everything interesting has already happened and was shown in cutscenes only. This final progression of the game is speculated to have been chosen cuz Squaresoft at the time cut funds for Xenogears' development, which was taking a long time for just a one-off project, and diverted it all to Final Fantasy 8 since its predecessor was a huge success and raised the bar to surpass.

Should probably change the topic title to "Waiting for Zandronum 3.0 release". Though v5b is probably still being worked on, so this is not a situation of "it's complete, we're waiting for Zand 3.0 and then we inmediately release".

Can we also talk about the other Xeno games (Xenogears, Xenosaga)?

Xenogears' music was composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, the man behind games such as Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, and Graffiti Kingdom. I love the music in Xenogears. Just wanted to bring that up.

I have frames for Flame's alt fire and all of Charge's animations, and I got started on Burst's bubble frames and Shade's swoop (that thing's a bitch). I'm not sure if they're on this computer, though; if they aren't, the quickest I can get them to you is around Thanksgiving.

Edit: Also have Bright's Flash Stopper frames somewhere, just wish I knew about this over the weekend while I was actually home, haha

Wow, that was fast.

BTW for graphical reference, these are SOME of the frames I had in mind that we could use rotations of:

We already have Shade Swoop rotations thanks to DarkAura/Cutmanmike, since we're adding that attack next release. Speaking of next release, it's gonna be v8e: given that we had too much fun adding new things and fixing others, v9a is still prolly some ways ahead. We have some partial design mockups for the rest of the MM9 bunch:

Max made a basic Concreteman not long ago so there's something to work over, we've discussed and set on some design mockups for Plugman, Tornadoman and Splashwoman (theory only for now, can change in the future), while we've had the design mockup of Jewelman set long ago.

low priority Request time:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Dynamic = multiple frames for a fluid animation, like Timeman's Time Slow

Rock: missing kick frames on walking-on-ball attack, and ball dropping frames.
Roll: missing broom swinging and bucket firing frames.
Dr. Wily: missing frying pan swinging frames
Sniper Joe: missing grenade throwing frames

Gutsman: missing punching frames?
Bombman: missing bomb holding frames

Flashman: missing Time Stopper firing frames (used in MM2, can be dynamic)

Hardman: missing rocket boosting frames (used in MM3)
Snakeman: missing climbing/poking frames
Sparkman: missing proper altfire spread firing frames (used in MM3)

Brightman: missing bulb throwing frames, and proper Flash Stopper firing frames (last ones used in MM4, can be dynamic)
Dustman: missing proper Dust Bitter and Dust Buster firing frames (he fires them from his buster arm, not from his vacuum)
Diveman: missing proper Dive Mine firing frames?
Skullman: missing proper Skull Barrier firing frames (used in MM4, can be dynamic)

Gravityman: missing proper Gravity Hold firing frames (can be taken from MM5, can be dynamic)
Waveman: missing proper Water Wave firing frames (used in MM5)
Gyroman: missing proper flying frames (used in MM5, can be dynamic), extra sprites used for takeoff (used in MM5)
Starman: potential improvement of firing frames (used in MM5, can be dynamic)
Chargeman: potential improvement of tackling frames (used in MM5, can be dynamic)

Flameman: missing proper altfire firing frames (used in MM6).
Knightman: potential improvement of firing frames overall (see MM6 sheet)
Plantman: missing proper Plant Barrier frames (can be improved, see MM6 sheet)
Tomahawkman: missing proper feather firing frames (used in MM6)
Windman: current firing frames are wrongly animated, altfire firing frames can be improved (see MM6 sheet).

Freezeman: missing proper Super Freeze Cracker frames (used in RM7FC)
Junkman: missing proper punching frames (used in RM7FC), potential improvement of Junk Armor firing frames (can be taken from RM7FC)
Burstman: missing altfire trapping bubble frames (used in RM7FC)
Springman: missing proper Spring Punch frames (used in RM7FC).

Tenguman: missing proper Tornado Hold firing frames (used in RM8FC)
Clownman: should mainfire firing frames show his arms attached to his body, despite Thunder Claw being made up of Clowman's arms? Should altfire firing frames show both arms, despite Clownman visibly burrowing one arm for this attack (look at RM8FC sheet for reference)? Shouldn't the swing attack have swinging frames (see RM8FC sheet for reference)?
Frostman: missing punching frames? (seen RM8FC sheet for reference)
Grenademan: potential improvement/inclusion of Grenade Spreader firing frames (see RM8FC sheet for reference)

Good luck making these:
Burnerman: missing proper Burner Dive charge frames and Bear Trap throwing frames
Coldman: missing proper Cold Shoulder firing frames and Cold Field firing frames
Dynamoman: incorrect altfire firing frames (in MM&B, the projectile is ejected from his buster arm like Tenguman's Tornado Hold), could use a second firing frame for mainfire firing (see MM&B sheet for reference)
Magicman: missing proper Magic Ball throwing frames

oh btw we kinda got the other mm9 dudes' design mockups at least somewhat done and decided on, still none made yet, go and play jc mm9 when it updates in the meantime

and pirateman steals because he does what he wants, he's free

So I just realized:

Mothraya, the Cossack Stage 1 boss pays homage to Toho's kaiju, Mothra.

Then I thought "where's Godzilla, then". Well, it's in Slash Man's stage: the gian t-rex that chases Mega Man, called King Gojulus.

And then I thought "what about the Wily Stage 2 boss", and yup, he and his babies are based on Daiei Film's Gamera, another famous kaiju.

And then I thought "well, there must be more!", and I assume Mecha Dragon is coincidentially the closest we'll ever get to a homage of Toho's King Ghidorah.

I said non-pointed because it would convey more accurately the shield's hitbox. But I guess there's no point in doing that.

Closed / Re: [Improved Sprites] Proto Shield Front
« on: October 23, 2016, 12:48:53 AM »
In some instances it's pointed, in some it isn't, probably because of design inconsistency between sprite artists and pencil artists, and between them and the original pencil designs for MM3, which are honestly kind of outdated: MM7 and MM8 art style, both sprite and pencil, are way more elaborate than Inafune's MM3 art style. Drawing styles evolve, and with them inevitably old character designs redrawn in newer art styles.

Go with non-pointed.

Maybe if the museum was like, two structures besides one another, one with an exhibit of robot masters, and the other using MM&B's intro stage as basis.
