Time Man and Oil Man (sprites and weapons) may or may not be in the Mega Man 8 expansion due to them being in Rock Man 8 FC. Might want to wait and see if that is true.

Well even if they are sir, their stages will assuredly not be made. So that's one thing your expansion can address. And if the characters/weapons aren't added, your expansion can add those things too.

Hello.

Give me tilesets and I'll do your maps.
(Oil Man and Time Man, although your idea of re-doing maps sounds verrry similar to the Upgraded Maps project)

And have a shot at Oil Slider. Making no promises here but eheh.

You're signed up for Oil Slider then. Ashley is working on the Time Slow, and Lakister is going to sprite weapon icons. He's also going to try and dig up tilesets for the maps.

I never said he was stealing Skye's idea.
Not mine...whatever.

Just considering that we'd have 3 of the MM1 maps.

EDIT: Myroc, do you want me to make it float or not? I think it did in PU but it might be a little tricky.

I can make it float on Death Water in Waveman's stage because that's a sector and is coded as such wheras the water in say, Ice Man's stage would likely sink as it would go staight to the bottom.
I'll see what I can do.

I'm thinking about basing the Time Slow off Atomic Fire, if I can figure out what this last part of the code means..

Then, I'll just have it act as half a Time Stopper, so the person using it can move at normal speed, but everything around them would be half their speed.

I'm not sure if I could enable weapon switching during, but I could default the megabuster to be used if firing is active during the Time Slow..

Also, I can make the Bots, given the skins are made for me to use.
I'm also attempting to make the Music 8-bit.

Yeah the cutom maps is kinda the same as the redone maps for mm1, BUT if you did add more gimmicks and such, id be willing to do a few stages, but ill have to see the gimmicks.

Quick question though;
Will a Ghost N Goblins level and a Wierd Japan level be placed in the Expansion?

Assume not. But if someone spontaneously makes one, and it's worth keeping, then it's possible.

oh that would be cool

well i think a hot head that can through fire would be cool for oil man.
i think ice man is fine, guts man is fine, elec man might be cool to have those thing that moved up and down when you climb those ladders(maybe), cutman is probably fine....i really think oil man might be the only one with a interesting enemy.

Let him do the stages, but don't let him reserve anything. God, when are you going to learn that you can't do everything, Vyse?

Also, Time Slow should work like Time Man's version. Fire diagonal clock hands, charge to slow time. You can fire hands during the Time Slow, but don't let the user change weapons. Time Slow should consume about 40% of the ammo bar, Hands of Time should eat up very little ammo, around Search Snake.

Yes, this was what I was thinking. First half of Gyro Attack, middle of Atomic Fire and then write your own "slow time" coding.
If possible.

Vyse, I've signed you up for Fire Man and Wily Fortress 1, but I'd recommend leaving those slots to someone else if they volunteer, since you seem to have stages to make for both the Upgraded Maps Project and the MM&B expansion. Try not to overload yourself with work, kay? ;)

Oh, and yes we are using the old tilesets for the remade maps.

So we just need maps.  :|

I could try Cut Man.
I'm a fucking noob at maps, but it'd give me something to do.
You may need to edit it in places such as item placement and music.

I would do Oil Man, but I hear the oil needs to be scripted in order to light fire, and I don't feel like doing things too advanced.

EDIT: Never mind, maps have never been my forte, and so far the result is terrible.

Correct me if I'm wrong: the slider should create a puddle that, when you step on, it puts you on constant acceleration.

So, upon colision with ground, it should "turn into a pickup" that won't air a message. When picked up, this item should be forced into use, which will cause the player to slide and create something to cause "collision" damage (like Charge Kick's "slash")

Pretty much enable collision that triggers the "get on wavebike" method, like from Waveman's stage; if you step on one of the launchers, it'll send you out.

If you could incorporate it to turn into its own sprite upon hitting the ground when fired, the oil would work..

Touch the oil and trigger the latter event, on a custom jetbike sprite.

Whilst on it, check for collision so that you damage whoever when you run into them.
Charge kick would be a bad example due to it still being a projectile, Tsukiyomaru.

If possible, enable a secondary jump mid-air if on the oil slider. That may require an edit of the jump mechanic itself ("If on oilslider, enable second jump.."), though.

Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up

If we can invent some textures on the spot we could always make some conveyor belts and disguise them as gears.

The command "carry" in DB2 only goes in the basic 4 directions, I could try making it go round but it'd be more hassle than it's worth.
Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up
Post by: Hallan Parva on January 03, 2011, 07:46:50 PM
Oh... well, can we still do the vertical gear?

Maybe replace the round flat gears with some pistons that move up and down... I don't know, as long as it moves around! It's a clock tower, it's gotta have moving parts in it.

I think in ACS you can set a sector to scroll in any direction you like. You'd have to create quite a few different sectors with different scrolling directions but it might be badass if you succeed! The problem is the texture on top, rotating textures is NOT easy.

YES.

I loved the woodsy look of Cutman's MMPU stage. The trees, the wooden stumps, the bright colorful look just seemed to fit the stage perfectly. Plus I loved Elecman's Tron-like neon city stage.

I'm voting YES to Korby.

Deathmatch maps. (Although a doom-like MM8BDM single player mode is a worthy idea in itself...)

This is not quite what I had in mind, but it sounds like a brilliant weapon nonetheless.

Then again, slowing time gobally is, ironically enough, considerably harder than stopping time, atleast in Skulltag.

If you had played MMPU, you would know that dirt "crap" is how Capcom made 8-bit dirt look in Oil Man's "Old Style" Map Pack.

The dirt top looks nice. Maybe take away the dark bottoms of the other dirt tiles. Also, Stone Man FTW :p

People of Cutstuff! We require your aid in matter that we can't make up our mind about. Since you are the one's who will use this pack (hopefully), we figured it was best to put it out for a public vote.

The subject matter is about music. We're contemplating whether or not we should use the original 8-bit music for all the stages, plus 8-bit remixes of Time Man and Oil Man (plus a secret theme...), or if we should instead use the non-8-bit PSP versions of the theme. The latter is quite good, although it does feel somewhat out of place.

Here are some comparisons:

Cut Man (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZc0qrEzwiw) - Powered Up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bal-qWOxcY0)
Fire Man (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIHh0no7pVs) - Powered Up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJNWLwFIhiA)

I just got an idea.

A Construction Mode stage. It could have elements from every stage, like Oil Pits, Fire Traps, Guts Lifts... and contains all the PU weapons.


It probably won't happen, but--

This. I mean, I know its Megaman 8-bit deathmatch and all, but I REALLY like the PU songs. Besides, it'd make the levels feel more unique.

You can use the original 8 bit tunes if you want, though. I mean, I have a PU music pack so I can just change the music whenever I want.

Yeah, I should probably mention that as well. We will include both the 8-bit version and the powered up version of all themes in this expansion. This poll only determines which music will be the default for the stages.

Ordinarily, I'm all 8-bit, but if you're going to have 8-bit music in this pack, the first six robot master stages would be nothing more than yet another version of their maps.  They're already too similar as it stands.  Go the PSP route.

Indeed we are! Time Man and Oil Man's stages are nearing completion, apart from that, the only thing we need are the weapons and some final tweaking, then this pack is pretty much good to go!

And it seems we're doing the PSP soundtrack then (which is a shame, since I actually preferred 8-bit but ah well. What can you do.

I have a question. If there are any answers besides something like, "It'd be more work" or "It would delay the expansion release", may I ask why we don't have skins in the Powered Up chibi style? I think those would be fun. :0

We already have the skins done for the most part, and 8-bit chibi for Megaman...not really a good mix.

Since when are you on the Powered Up expansion team?

Anyway, we haven't thought of it! I myself think that the original sprites are okay as they are, though. It is, however a neat idea, and if one were to supply those, we probably will sneak them in.

We will distribute both the PSP music, and the 8-bit versions in this pack. This poll only determines which music will be the default for the stages.

Valentines Roll is late. REALLY late.


I finally decided to stop neglecting the Roll skins(I only have 2 more to make!) so I got started on Valentines Roll

(http://i584.photobucket.com/albums/ss288/Mubarik1995/valentinesrollexample.png)

A little problem, though.. Valentines Roll apparently attacks with a "box of chocolates." I don't know how I would implement that into a sprite and make it work. Would you mind if she instead attacked with a regular Megabuster? Some of the other Roll skins already do that.
Title: Ooh!

I was unaware chocolate boxes had handles. Perhaps have her hold it horizontally with both hands, one on lid and one on bottom, and have her open it in a fashion similar to Pac-Man(Bottom and Top are equally diagonal) and have her shoot out of that?
Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up
Post by: Kapus on March 05, 2011, 05:58:40 PM
Disregard that last post. I GREATLY misinterpreted the box of chocolates. Its Heart Shaped, not oval shaped. Also, it doesn't have a handle.

Here's the fixed version.

(http://i584.photobucket.com/albums/ss288/Mubarik1995/vrollfire-1.png)

I could try your idea, Korby, but I don't think anyone would be able to tell it was heart shaped..
Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up
Post by: Myroc on March 05, 2011, 07:05:49 PM
To be quite honest, I think it would look better if she just whacked people with it, like the rest of the Rolls.

But, Chaos, that would mean making skins that already exist, just with a taunt will just be edits of the original skins....if it can even be counted as that.

Not to mention that would further delay the release.

I could understand if you guys are tired on this, but I really didn't think what I asked would be so hard to do.  Would it not take no more than a few minutes?  Seems the hardest part--to me--would be finding the desired voice clip online.
Also, if two skins are given the same name, one is considered "dominant," and takes the spot of that skin, and the other "recessive," and it is duplicated under the name of "Skin(insert number here)."  I honestly think it's something that should be in the main game's programming, but--if people like their tauntless bots--we could, theoretically, find a way for the taunt bots to appear in the place of the non-taunting bots, right?

Also, it's PC-98 Marisa, not Classic Marisa. Just pointing it out. PC-98 was an important era, since it had Shinki and Yumeko, who (obviously) inspired the Sakuya and Remilia pair. However, Yumeko does not wear chest pads. Only Sakuya does.

Well, we've been testing the maps all the way throughout the process.

Currently, there's a lot of work being done to perfect and *tweak* the maps such that they'll be more pleasing to play and be immersed in. It might seem like a pointless step, but it's honestly the most important. Everything must be placed such that, if removed, then the entire map is ruined.

(which is funny, because the version afterward will require this step being re-done!)

Damn, OilMan's stage looks sexy. :cool:

I love all of the stages you guys made. They all look very varied and fun to play on, especially with the new weapons! I honestly can't wait, I'm eager for the pack's release!

Question: when this is finally published, will you be making promotional Time Man and Oil Man classes? Yellow Devil helped with your project (I think he made the OilMan stage, if I remember correctly) so it would be cool to have these guys playable in his project.

And it is possible to play Roboenza using those weapons, it just requires a tad of extra code to enable them in LMS, I did this with my custom weapons, it was pretty easy

This has already been taken care of really. The expansion pk3 automatically adds Oil Slider and Time Slow* to the LMS rotation.

*Maybe. We haven't decided yet.

We also do not plan to include Oil Man and Time Man classes for the initial release, but we'll probably make them later as a separate pk3 which you add to the classes mod and the Powered Up expansion.

Seeing as the Roll skins were pretty much a "sure why not", they are pretty much optional. If they're finished before the rest is, sure, but the above two are the only things that are necessary for release.

And DW2 was finished I believe.

Post by: Hallan Parva on May 11, 2011, 07:53:59 PM
So Oil Slider's droplet is basically a weaker yet non-fading Flame Blast, and the jetski of power Oil Slider itself is basically the lovechild of Star Crash and a nonstop Charge Kick thrust?

SWEEEEEEEEEET. :cool:


EDIT:

Charge Buster looks like an OHKO... isn't that Atomic Fire's job?

GutsMan Stage looks sexy. Normally lots of bridges makes me go "aww man" but you made it work. Good job.

OilMan Stage gave me a raging retro boner when the oil lit up on fire. :D

Besides Flame Blast, can other fire weapons (namely Fire Storm in the video) light the oil?

My raging retro boner doubled in size when I saw FireMan Stage's fire traps. :mrgreen:

In Wily PU Stage 2, there was Oil Slider and water... can you slide on the water like in PU?

I like how you used existing weapons in the maps and didn't make them MMPU weapons only.

I hate to say it Mess, but these maps easily outclass the CSCM pack maps... hehehehe.

Oh, is the expansion going to add Time/Oil/Charge to the LMS rotation?

And regarding the above question, would you add Time/Oil to the RageRobo rotation as well?

If you're afraid of compatibility problems with RageRobo, then maybe a separate "Powered Up Rage" version?
Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up
Post by: Yuri Sakazaki on May 11, 2011, 08:21:43 PM
Charge Buster actually isn't OHKO, I believe the bots had low health when he shot them.

Oil/Time/Charge is added to the LMS rotation.

And as for the Oil Slider, it can slide on death water but not in deep water  :ugeek:

I'll just make this clear, Monday isn't a definite release date. Seeing as the only thing left to do is to get a clear permission from one of our mappers to use an altered version of his stage, we probably will release it before then.

Seeing as everyone else in the team likes the altered version more, it should be quick to get an answer from him.

I see you also used alternate Oilman and Timeman skins. I personally like my Oilman better, but as for Timeman, I dunno, both are good in my opinion.

Anywho, I'm hosting this on my server. They're very fun. My only complaint is that since the skins are bundled in the same pk3, I don't think I can use them on any server. And then I end up with doubles if I put them in my skins folder.

Music is awesome and Oil Slider is really really fun to use.

To make a custom episode select thing, you have to move all the mapinfo lumps from the map wads into one giant mapinfo in the pk3. Then play around with episode definitions (http://zdoom.org/wiki/MAPINFO/Episode_definition).

Okay, you don't need to combine the mapinfo stuff, this should work:

Code: [Select]
clearepisodes

episode MAP01
name "MM8BDM Single Player" //you can change the name to whatever
noskillmenu

episode MMPCUT
name "MM8BDM Powered up!" //you can change this to whatever as well
noskillmenu

episode CREDMAP
name "Credits"
noskillmenu

Just make a mapinfo in the main pk3 and put that in there.

You use the console, Dark Phil. And if you do not know, use the ~ key to open the console. Just time in "MAP *mapcode here*" and you can go to the map, no quotes or asterisks, of course. For example...

MAP MM1CUT ? Cutman's stage (beofre expansion...)

MAP MMPGUT ? Gutsman's MMPU expansion stage.

Etc.

(Hasterune, Ragerune) I never expected to see that. Why is there a Bass bust that shoots charged buster shots? Time Slow and Oil Slider, all I can say is wow.

This is for balance purposes actually. Flame Blast is a little bit out of the way (and will be harder to reach in the next update), while Fire Storm is way out in the open. Not just anyone should be able to ignite oil like that.

But it'll require 2 versions: An immediate rerelease with the updated globals/wcolors/etc (so it won't be neglected), and then a version a week or so later to rebalance/add mm7 goodies.

Step 1: On the Launcher, look for Extra Command Line Parameters and press Add File.
Step 2: Choose PoweredUp-v1a and then press Start
Step 3: You're done!

However, I do not recommend using it with MM8BDM V2 as PoweredUp is not compatible with that yet.

Here's the changes list for the upcoming v1b:

-Full compatibility with v2+ and MM7 weapons included
-Oilman stage's Oil Canisters now look more like oil and less like.....grape soda?
-Oil Slider shot damage increased from 15 to 20
-Oil Slider sled speed slightly increased
-Oil Slider droplets now damage enemies.  This also means you cannot pickup an opponents oil droplet
-Time Slow 'slow' animation changed to MM7 style
-DW1 now has 32 dm starts
-Secret upgrade added, can only be obtained by Eddie.

I still don't see a clear difference between Roll Swing and Slash Claw. To me, Roll Swing just looks like a "rebalanced" Slash Claw (or vice versa), like Roll's the "Mario" with perfect balance, and Slash is "Luigi" with almost-perfect stats, but has a slight offset in one category.

Roll Swing's good for two things, and neither of them are damage.

1. Deflecting Projectiles with the first swing (Cannot reflect Charge Buster)
2. Knocking people away like v1d Wind Storm with the second swing.

Proto Strike is Proto Man's buster from Mega Man Powered Up. It gives you the normal proto shield and allow you to fire charge shots at a moderate rate. Super Bass Buster is still a joke weapon and a horribly overpowered one at that, and it'll remain out of reach for standard non-cheating play.

Just a little heads up from me. V1c will be released once I kick enough life back into the rest of the team so they'll actually update all their stuff. In the meantime, here are all the skins from the Powered Up pack, so you can use them outside of Powered Up servers as well.

Grab it here! (http://www.mediafire.com/?q43jdwpf8dw5s8p)

Note, this pack does not contain the Shield Attacker, since that was included without my permission. It was only ever meant to be a prop in Time Man's stage, nothing more. If you want it, you're going to have to grab it from Kapus' skin thread.

Post by: Myroc on August 01, 2011, 08:22:49 PM
*blows off dust*

Powered Up v1c has been released. This one has skin fixes in it, so there's also a new skin pack to grab. Note that skins are included in BOTH pk3s, so the original pk3 can still work standalone. Having both at the same time produces nothing more than a few duplication errors which does absolutely nothing of importance. In any case, they're both available in the first post, as well as the updated skin pack.

Aside from this, this version mostly consists of fixes, tweaking, and some minor feature creep of small shiny gimmicks that everyone loves so much. Here, have a changelog:

(click to show/hide)

Next on the agenda will be creating a single player campaign for this, complete with boss and secret boss. Somewhere along the line we will also retexture the stages of the original six Robot Masters to look more like their Powered Up counterpart.

I would be extremely interested in all of them, Especially Timeman and Oilman. My friends? Well...

The current Time Slow weapon in the expansion is based off Time Man's weapon, and not Mega Man's. (Mega Man can't fire arrows in the PSP game) Because of this, a Time Man class would be redundant unless Time Slow was changed.

Time Slow WASN'T based off of Mega Man's Time Slow (PSP) because it would be overkill. (freezing the entire screen, etc.) and not really as effective as a weapon, so the team went with Time Man's version instead. I wouldn't really count on a Time Man class.

well if that was case then cutman's class shouldent exist (mm8bdm uses cutman's bouncing one, not megaman's no interaction hax cutters) besides, if time slow can be used and switch weapons, why the heck can't he just drop a timeslow wep minus the arrows

The current Time Slow weapon in the expansion is based off Time Man's weapon, and not Mega Man's. (Mega Man can't fire arrows in the PSP game) Because of this, a Time Man class would be redundant unless Time Slow was changed.
I wouldn't really count on a Time Man class.
well if that was case then cutman's class shouldent exist (mm8bdm uses cutman's bouncing one, not megaman's no interaction hax cutters) besides, if time slow can be used and switch weapons, why the heck can't he just drop a timeslow wep minus the arrows

also you should really wait till you're wide awake before you post these things has no room to talk myself

Cut Man's class is an unoriginal one, but the nature of that class's weapons allows for Classes Cut Man to have a significantly different Rolling Cutter than Mega Man. Knight Man's and Mega Man's (in 8BDM) Knight Crush attack varies as well, even if it's not a different attack. What I'm saying is: If a Time Man class was made based off Time Man (PSP), it would lack a significant difference from the Time Slow weapon. A significant difference, that classes such as Cut Man have.

I also did not mention drop weapons. Given that Time Slow is an AoE weapon, Time Man class wouldn't drop anything to be consistent with the other examples. (Bright, Centaur, etc.) If you're so confident that I'm wrong, why don't you just make it yourself and rub it in my face? Mega Man's Time Slow was considered for PU only on the basis that the future Time Man class would get the arrows exclusively. Yes, a Time Man class could be made by editing the weapon, just like most of the current classes. It wouldn't be as interesting, technicalities aside.

While that is true, not all classes are that distinct from Mega's version of their weapons. Snake Man fires Search Snakes with a melee which doubles as climbing. Needle Man has a faster firing version of the Needle Cannon with a melee. Magnet Man fires Magnet Missiles with a melee. Cut Man throws a normal Rolling Cutter with a melee. Guts Man has a regular Super Arm with a melee. Top Man throws projectiles and has...Guess what? A melee (which in this case is actually his main fire).

The point is, we don't really need Time Man's method of firing to be that different from Mega's version. Heck, you could just give him Time Arrows as a primary and Time Slow as an alt.

*snip*

I'm pretty sure you shouldn't put words in our collective mouths.

Mega Man's version of Time Slow was not declined because it wasn't effective. We could easily have removed the arrows and simply gone with a slightly buffed version of the slow part that the current weapon has. Hell, we even tried that at one point. It just wasn't very interesting. Seeing as this expansion only added two weapons to the fray (okay so we added two additional ones but you get the point), we needed to make sure that both those weapons were a tad more fun to use than the rest, while still sticking somewhat true to their PSP counterparts. Hence we made it Time Man's version. Sure, we did contemplate a potential Time Man/Oil Man class back in those days but we didn't pay any special respect with that in mind, instead focusing on Powered Up as a DM-expansion(what irony)as a whole.

On the subject of non-interesting classes, a large majority of the classes really are just their main weapon plus an additional altfire. Hell, some even don't have that. Take a look at Metal Man for example. Or Star Man, before he had his altfire. Seeing as Time Slow is probably too powerful for a Time Man class to drop on death, this would mean that Time Man would have pretty much unique access to anything Time Slow related in any stage that isn't a stage with Time Slow (which, counting in both the Powered Up maps, the vanilla maps, and any eventual map packs that servers hosts, aren't that many.), or on the off chance someone gets it via Eddie.

I don't think that splitting up the current Time Slow for two different attacks on Time Man's class is that a big deal. Hell, with Time Slow he already has a role to play. Countering fast and hard-to-hit classes. Neither Mega/Proto/Bass can do this as easily since Time Slow is a lot harder for them to access, and consumes ammo like nobody's business when they do get it.

On the subject of the classes themselves, all YD needs to finish those classes are their respective HUDs. Hopefully a kind spriter will probably provide them.

You could always have him be like Punk and have him shoot two different versions (maybe one fast ripper arrow and then the Mega Man version?)

But that's not important now.

I did not say Time Slow would be ineffective. I said it would be ineffective as a weapon, meaning that it would not kill people (like Time Stopper) as you would want a fun weapon to. I said that would also be overpowered first, because the "ineffective as a weapon" was only semantics. So let me clarify what I am trying to say. Messatsu said that a 50% time slow on the whole map would be overpowered, so Time Man's version was used instead.

I assumed you agreed with him because you made the project. If you didn't, then I'm wrong and judged incorrectly. If I offended you because I assumed you have good judgment, I won't do that in the future. I am not putting words in your mouth. Whether or not you said it is entirely irrelevant to my point.

I never actually use the time arrows myself.
I've always charged it up, slowed people, and switched to a stronger weapon. One to conserve time ammo, and two because it's stronger and any accuracy problems it had before are solved.
Since day one, I wouldn't miss the time arrows.

Well, here's things that are changed for the next version so far.  I'm just posting these here as a place to store them and get feedback from folks.

- Secret Boss, Chapter Boss and Credits added. (Also possible to select the powered up chapter from the single player menu)
- Possession Stone changed.  Not shootable initially.  After a period of time, it will become shootable.  If it's not obtained after another period of time, the round ends like in vanilla 2c.  HOWEVER, the round ending can be disabled by the server admin.
- Various Stage / Texture tweaks. (3d bridge in Ice Man, new textures in Oil man etc)
- Time Slow arrow ammo consumption lowered and the variation on the arrow path reduced.
- Delay on firing Charge buster charge shots removed.  
- sv_maxlives fix.  Will only make players invulnerable if maxlives is less than 2.
- Weapon colors do not change in Team Possession.

More as I think of them.

What do you all think? Anything else that is broken or should be changed?

Well, if Oil Slider is in use when the Hellstone is grabbed, the user becomes immobilized as long as they have the stone.

Couple of minor thoughts:
-Remove Time Slow from Possession. I would argue that even one person using it makes holding the stone impossible.
-Add weapons with higher ammo capacity (Screw Crusher, Quick Boomerang, etc.) to Oil Man's stage. Due to v1c, the stage really eats it in the "amount of weapon ammo you have" category. Making the stage bigger wouldn't hurt, either. (do some dilation magic if you must; walking around often feels like putting a dinosaur in a dollhouse - most paths / areas are really small and easy to fall off. I would say the same about Elec Man's stage, to a lesser degree)

With the addition of new Powered Up tilesets, does this mean that certain maps will be getting complete layout overhauls? Consider Bomb Man, for example. His classic stage is mainly outside and has wide-open space all around, but his Powered Up stage has more walls and ceilings, and gives a much-more confined feeling as if you were in a store house. Obviously, a simple tileset swap wouldn't work with Bomb Man's current PU stage given how open and exposed it is. To a lesser extent, this "overhaul" logic can also be applied to Elec Man.

Nope.

The textures will be changed accordingly so that the stages still utilises the new textures, while at the same time modifying the aesthetics of stages so it feels more like its PU counterpart, but there will be no layout overhauls. It's merely a cosmetic change.

As I said. The layout will remain, but the aesthetics will be modified to more closely resemble the PU version. It's still possible to create a sense of enclosure in a map that's as open as Bomb Man.

While I'm on the subject of completely changing your expansion...

Remastered / remixed music. Similar to MMP8BOSS, I was thinking each stage could have an 8-bit version of the MMPU stage theme. There are a few noticeable differences, such as how Ice Man's theme feels more "arctic", and how Guts Man's theme is slower and doesn't repeat so often.

Expansion boss. With the new tile sets and 8-bit music, the only thing this expansion needs to make it a real "home run" would be the end-chapter boss. Heck, if you made a boss to go with this, I really don't see why CutmanMike can't go ahead and make this project "official". MMPU was an official series game, after all, and he doesn't even have to do any work! (lol pushing off the MM8 expansion) With a boss I feel like this could easily become MM8BDM v3.

Intro stage. There's a tile set by Nemz so why not? :cool:

This has been brought up at several points, and I guess we can implement them if someone makes them.

I made a tiling background that can keep the open style while still making it feel like you're somewhere in a giant cavernous bunker.  The skybox might need to be adjusted to make it work right but nothing drastic.

Seriously, don't worry about it.  I am trying to take the existing stages into account as I'm working on these tiles.  PU Bomb Man doesn't have any fences for example, but I added one because the stage as it currently exists does.  

That said, there's no reason people can't go around tweaking things based on their much greater experience with the maps now that they've been out for a while at the same time the new textures get put on, and doing so should make the stages even better.  Try to think of this as an opportunity, not an obligation.

Sorry to bump this after three months, but there's a number of bugs and weirdness I'd like to address that have gone unchecked presumably since before v1a.

When playing the maps in this expansion, I notice that the weapons don't go away when picked up.  Why is this of note?  Because my game settings have "weapons stay" disabled!  I really don't like priority overrides like this...  I like playing my game with some degree of -altdeath rules, such as weapons not staying when picked up (thus being able to be grabbed if you're low on ammo).
Edit: I take back what I said above, to an extent.  It's not just this expansion's maps.  AMP09 also makes weapons stay behind, ignoring the server's personal settings.  What I can't figure out, however, is why this happens.  I don't see anything in the maps themselves nor ACS scripting that would override the server's personal settings like that...

Edit 2: Nevermind.  I found out what the problem is.  The levels were being registered as Deathmatch levels, but unfortunately, that meant that SV_DefaultDMFlags could do its job, thus ruining my local settings.  SV_DefaultDMFlags has thusly been disabled on my end and the weapons are disappearing normally.  Sorry about that.

Also, are all the definitions files within the PK3 file really necessary?  KEYCONF doesn't seem to do anything, nor does LOADACS, SBARINFO, or CMPGNINFO (which might be too many letters for a definitions file anyway).  If any of this redundant stuff is doing anything, it's not doing it very well...

Lastly, I notice that a lot of things you've implemented override existing things.  Specifically, the Proto Upgrade 2, Bass Upgrade 2, Adaptor Upgrade 2, M-Tank PU, Yashichi Dropper (?), and Roll Dropper (?!).  Doing this causes some of these things to not exist as intended.  The Proto and Bass upgrades are still accessible both through the "give all" console command and on rare occasion Eddie, but Roll now wears a random costume every time the Light Lab map loads and the Yashichi functions as an item.

Anyway, just wanted to ask about this.  The expansion pack is pretty awesome otherwise.  Time Slow is my new favorite weapon, though Oil Slider is pretty high up there as well.  X3

Short version, yes, all those things are necessary.
KEYCONF - Resets loaded player class so that custom pain states can be used (needed for Time Slow)
LOADACS - Loads some scripts specific to PU
SBARINFO - Needed for drawing ammo bars and other HUD visual items on the screen
CMPGNINFO - Adds bots to the maps when played single player.  The single player in v1d will have bosses

All the other items (Bass Upgrade 2 etc) are there because of a change in PU that requires a core item to be overwritten.  And yes, Yashichi is an item in v1c and the random roll costume is intended.

Although concerning the yaschishi and RollDropper, those are being removed/likely to be removed anyway since they were pretty much random things we added in "because we could", and in hindsight there were a lot of such decisions that I/we shouldn't have made in the first place.

Though we're contemplating including a separate placable and collectable yaschishi item for people who decides to make maps utilizing Powered Up items, but seeing as that currently involves a grand total of zero people, we will most likely drop it completely.

While I don't think it could become v3, I think it COULD be a revision to the MM1 chapter. Not full-course revision, but simply adding in Time Man and Oil Man, plus their respective maps and weapons. It's bugging me, and possibly some others, that MM1 only had 6 Robot Masters. Obviously, Time Man and Oil Man would fix that.

Post by: Galaxy Sisbro on December 22, 2011, 03:55:34 PM
I don't think so. First, considering the case, CMM isn't going to make any layout change as the current state of MM8BDM, so it includes noticeably adding new maps to the chapters already placed. that, without including therefore the CTF maps (That aren't classified as part of the original storyline, mind you), the MM7 expansion and the incoming ones.

Second, as CMM keeps repeating, he ISN'T changing the Classic chapters. What I'm trying to say here, is that CMM needs the enclosure of the original games' feelings preserved. PU was a better revision, we know that, though you can't compare it with the original NES game counterpart, where bad graphics and silly robot masters had a sense of nostalgia and memories of childhood for most of us.

Third, this custom expansion serves the purpose of what you just said.

And, finally, if it bugs you that Chapter 1 only has 6 robot masters, you have almost 50 other maps to play it, plus the customs maps (CSCM has almost 40, IX pack has 25, AMP map pack has 10), and, without including that Chapter 1 has the fuction of helping you to incorporate to the game's main gameplay. It's only normal that this chapter has the smallest maps in both terms of numbers and size.

So far what stands out as the most positive change is making the firetraps staggered in some hallways so it isn't a complete roadblock half the time.

Most amusing exploit of the single player campaign so far has been just camping on the hyper bombs in elec for a 20-0 win.  I don't think the bots even took a single shot at me, and there are several places within striking distance from that perch where they get caught "admiring the view".

This mod contains numerous elements that are inconsistent with MM8BDM: particularly, a set of standards that the main build is consisten to ("the core"). PU is not a canon mega man game; the main focus of PU was a graphical update / revision of Mega Man 1. This expansion does not capture that - mainly, the graphic update, instead just adding the other features of PU on at a whim. In order to actually capture the purpose of PU (the game) a new graphical style would be necessary. 3D models would be an example of a new graphical style. I am not referring to simply textures - the expansion is more "Mega Man 1 Deluxe" than Powered Up for this reason.

Elements of the expansion that conflict with the core:

-Behavior of custom weapons. Super Bass Buster and Proto Strike are both simply edits of existing weapons; Proto Strike contains the same icon as Proto Buster and is incapable of being incorporated into DM weapon placement naturally. Both weapons are designed with the intent of being OP; or exist merely to distort Eddie's inventory. This leads to scenarios in which ONLY one person will have these weapons at a time - and usually be unstoppable.

-Multifunctional custom weapons. Stock weapons are usually one single attack, occasionally two different - such as Gyro Attack having a single gyro and a gyro split attack. Time Slow has 3, Oil Slider has 3. Oil Slider contains a double bar and consumes a generally superficial amount of ammo per use. (You could potentially argue that Burst Wrap has 3 attacks, but the two weapons above are more clear-cut in the attacks being different.) Time Slow, similar to the buster upgrades, gives an immediate advantage upon use (your opponent becomes a sloth) and the charge attack leaves enough ammo to be used again.

-Excessive skins. Mike has stated for alternate skins (in the core) that "one or two is fine".

-Presence of the Energy Balancer.

-Low quality custom textures. (Note that the MM7 textures are limited, but otherwise useable.) Certain areas of Time Man's stage, in particular the "wood" sections are not visually pleasing.

-Presence of runes in multiple maps. Using runes (particularly ragerune) overly centralizes maps around it in a way that cannot be made up for.

There are probably other things that I haven't mentioned. I'm certain that the PU team is aware of all these changes and made them knowing it would be separate from the core. Galaxy brings up a good point in describing the expansion as well. Were it added to the core, PU would only add "bells and whistles" which are either designed outside of core standards or capable of going into the core by themselves.

I'm going to break down what you've said Ice since I feel this needs a point-by-point reply.  
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
Elements of the expansion that conflict with the core:

-Behavior of custom weapons. Super Bass Buster and Proto Strike are both simply edits of existing weapons; Proto Strike contains the same icon as Proto Buster and is incapable of being incorporated into DM weapon placement naturally. Both weapons are designed with the intent of being OP; or exist merely to distort Eddie's inventory. This leads to scenarios in which ONLY one person will have these weapons at a time - and usually be unstoppable.
Super bass buster is a joke and is intended to be stupidly OP.  It's nothing more than a gag and cannot be obtained in any way in normal play.  Proto strike is an eddie only item that now has a unique icon and was toned down in v1d to not be so powerful. From your above quote I'm guessing that you didn't even look at it.  
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Multifunctional custom weapons. Stock weapons are usually one single attack, occasionally two different - such as Gyro Attack having a single gyro and a gyro split attack. Time Slow has 3, Oil Slider has 3. Oil Slider contains a double bar and consumes a generally superficial amount of ammo per use. (You could potentially argue that Burst Wrap has 3 attacks, but the two weapons above are more clear-cut in the attacks being different.) Time Slow, similar to the buster upgrades, gives an immediate advantage upon use (your opponent becomes a sloth) and the charge attack leaves enough ammo to be used again.
The weapons were designed to mimic their PSP counterparts as closely as possible.  While it's true Oil Slider has multiple functions, they are in line with the game this expansion is based off of.  Time Slow is a different beast.  We opted to use Time Man's version of the weapon rather than Mega Man's because of the nature of being slowed.  If we were to use MM's version it would basically be an immediate slow which you describe as an instant advantage.  The Time man version was decided upon because the charge up acts as both a visual and audible warning that something powerful is nearby so that players would notice it quickly and generally target the user.
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Excessive skins. Mike has stated for alternate skins (in the core) that "one or two is fine".
All the skins, including the multiple Rolls were from PU.  Besides, I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain about having too many choices for skins.  
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Presence of the Energy Balancer.
From MM6,7,8,9,10 ...native in PU.  Not sure what you're point is here?
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Low quality custom textures. (Note that the MM7 textures are limited, but otherwise useable.) Certain areas of Time Man's stage, in particular the "wood" sections are not visually pleasing.
This is fairly subjective, but if you want to yell at someone about it, go complain to the FC guys, it's their stuff.
Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Presence of runes in multiple maps. Using runes (particularly ragerune) overly centralizes maps around it in a way that cannot be made up for.
Yes yes, you've made it quite clear your feelings on runes before.  However, this sounds more like your opinion than anything else.  Also once again, that centralizes maps comment makes me believe you haven't even looked at v1d yet.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Quote from: "Ice-IX"

Galaxy brings up a good point in describing the expansion as well. Were it added to the core, PU would only add "bells and whistles" which are either designed outside of core standards or capable of going into the core by themselves.

If you're trying to say that elements of PU don't belong in the core, then I'd 100% agree.  Powered Up was a PSP game that does not adhere to the limitations of the NES, thus certain parts do not jive with the core.

The one thing I'd like to point out is that everyone has their OPINIONS on what works and what doesn't.  This is what we felt would be enjoyable to a large number of players.  You don't have to agree with the choices and we'd rather hear everyone's opinions to work out issues.  However, if 10 people report something works great and 1 person says it doesn't, we may not change it.

Basically what Roc was saying:

Time Slow:
1) Arrow Projectile
2) Time Slow's Effect
3) Rapid Fire Arrows

Oil Slider: (is actually 4, maybe 5 depending on if you group 5 with 2.)
1) Arcing Oil Glob projectiles
2) Oil Sliding (like Star Crash on wheels)
3) Oil Slide over water
4) Oil Globs can be burned by fire weapons to be somewhat like a longer lasting flame blast.
5) Technically you can also jump off Oil Slider for an extra bit of height.

Quote from: "Ice-IX"
PU is not a canon mega man game; the main focus of PU was a graphical update / revision of Mega Man 1. This expansion does not capture that  - mainly, the graphic update, instead just adding the other features of PU on at a whim. In order to actually capture the purpose of PU (the game) a new graphical style would be necessary. 3D models would be an example of a new graphical style. I am not referring to simply textures - the expansion is more "Mega Man 1 Deluxe" than Powered Up for this reason.
The original intent of the Powered Up rerelease of Mega Man 1 on the PSP was, which was retroactively changing MM1 to be more consistent with today's standard Mega Man game. This is not the intention of this expansion. This expansion exists to expand upon and improve the core gameplay, using the Powered Up weapons and items, as well as changing elements in the vanilla game that we feel could be improved. Surely you should be familiar with this since you're in the same situation with KY Classes vs YD Classes.

Super Bass Buster and Proto Strike are both simply edits of existing weapons; Proto Strike contains the same icon as Proto Buster and is incapable of being incorporated into DM weapon placement naturally.

This leads to scenarios in which ONLY one person will have these weapons at a time - and usually be unstoppable.
Super Bass Buster is a gag item that is unable to be obtained in normal gameplay never will be. Proto Strike is nothing more than an easter egg that was never intended to be as stupidly powerful as it used to be.

Time Slow, similar to the buster upgrades, gives an immediate advantage upon use (your opponent becomes a sloth) and the charge attack leaves enough ammo to be used again.
...so you're implying there's something wrong with weapons that possess multiple functions? There's nothing wrong with them being versatile, as long as they're not One Weapon To Rule Them All, which has never been observed in any form, whether it is in theory, personal testing, observation of real games and matches, or what have you. All the weapons do have disadvantages. Time Slow is despite the recent ammo buff still quite ammo consuming, and Oil Slider can be cumbersome to use and a good way of sending yourself into certain doom if you're not careful.

Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Excessive skins. Mike has stated for alternate skins (in the core) that "one or two is fine".
I'll admit that not all of the decisions for Powered Up have been that wise in retrospect. The excessive amounts of extra skins were one of them and would be the first thing to go if I would remake this from scratch. With all due respect, however, few people have voiced discontent because of these.

Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Presence of the Energy Balancer.
Energy Balancer was present in Powered Up, you were always equipped with it. I fail to see your point.

Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Low quality custom textures. (Note that the MM7 textures are limited, but otherwise useable.) Certain areas of Time Man's stage, in particular the "wood" sections are not visually pleasing.
So you think the textures are ugly? Fine, that's your opinion. We have yet to see anyone agree with this, though.

Quote from: "Ice-IX"
-Presence of runes in multiple maps. Using runes (particularly ragerune) overly centralizes maps around it in a way that cannot be made up for.
We implemented the ragerune/hasterune gimmick into Time Man's stage as an experiment and found it to be an interesting and amusing feature. And there are several maps in the core that are overly centralized around a common gimmick as well, like, for example, Quick Man, Gravity Man, and MM7DW4. And as Mess said, this sounds more to be a personal opinion of yours.

Were it added to the core, PU would only add "bells and whistles" which are either designed outside of core standards or capable of going into the core by themselves.
We understand that not all of our decisions go hand to hand with what would work in the core. Our highest priority is enjoyable and interesting gameplay before core inclusion. If the latter would be possible it will just be an added bonus. I can see that one might not want everything from this expansion thrown directly into the core, there would most likely be some selective cutting.

I would like to point out also, via the DM's bot apoc server, I've always seen at least one or two people on the server using some of the PU Roll skins. Hell any server I've been in that has a lot of people in it theres ussually 1 or 2 Rolls

Post by: Hallan Parva on February 01, 2012, 05:56:50 PM
I really don't see much of a problem adding this to "the core", really.

PU weapons are already greatly widespread and I don't think Mike would turn down a few new free toys to put in vanilla maps. The amount of skins is negligent compared to the amount of both stock AND custom skins already in existence, and they're "canon" skins to boot. Plus, a lot of the changes (like the "fixed" Flash Stopper and the addition of Energy Balancer) patch up or enhance things that are already there. The Flash Stopper exploit has been a KNOWN concern and the vanilla buster upgrades ALWAYS wasted any ammo pick-ups you found. At minimum the flash fix and the buster ammo fix could be used in the "core" if nothing else, and last time I checked nobody seems to frown at the idea of extra bosses and such.

Really, besides the "problems" of the joke weapons and "gimmicky" stages I don't see why this couldn't be put in.

Because whether people want to admit it or not, Roll looks badass in most of her skins. Granted, I'm normally playing as a different custom skin while playing PU, but if I don't have that option (Not on Tomato's server), I pick Ninja Roll.

Coming from the DM server, I like the changes to Flash Stopper and Wind Storm. With old Flash stopper, you could still kinda see out of the sides while under its effect, but with the new one completely whiteouts the screen for a shorter time, which raises its effectiveness in my opinion. And Mess said that the changes to Wind Storm were to make it a better weapon on its own and it definitely does that. The lower throw height means it's easy to hit multiple times with one tornado and the throwing can really mess with the aim of the victim. It definitely seems like an improvement over the old one which seemed to only be good for using in conjunction with Gravity Hold or for delaying people with how high it threw them. And speaking of Gravity Hold, it seems it can still be effective when used with the new Wind Storm, but it just requires more/better aimed shots of Wind Storm for it to work well.

Also, the campaign is pretty good in my opinion. The hidden boss is interesting and I thought the final boss was great, especially once I figured out that you actually get the MM1 and PU weapons and discovered the trick behind using them.

I'll agree, most of Time Man's stage is ugly... but then again I think it's ugly in PU as well even with all that extra graphic horsepower, so what is there to do about it?  Making it look good would make it unrecognizable, and that defeats the point.

In general I'm not really a fan of the powered up graphic style (too many big flat blocks of color and incoherently jumbled textures to fill in areas) but that's what this expansion needs... and in any case it's still better than most of the astoundingly bad tiles in the original mm1.  If anything I think it's actually BETTER when converted to 8-bit because the color limitations force the chaos to get in line and make some kind sense.

Actually, I get Roc's point of "Ugly" textures. Basically, Some of Time man's textures aren't that appealing, Especially the wood. As for Oilman, it is a complete different topic, since the number of colors in that stage and the poorly selection of these makes the stage looks fuzzy.

I'm pretty sure Nemz fixed the later. Not sure about Time man, though.

I did some color correction on both and added more frames of animation here and there, but left the textures otherwise mostly alone.  Here, judge for yourself (and do realize that the current in-game FC tiles use non-NES colors and far too many palettes):

Time

Oil

That's nice, thanks! I'll look into it once I'm free from all the studying I have ahead. Exams begin this week starting from Friday.

You may have a old version of MM8BDM or a Old version of the mod

Greetings Mr. Myroc! Several of the skins from this mod have had their primary colors broken due to the change in palette. I am going to fix the ones I have downloaded and I was curious if you wished for me to send them back to you so other can get them too?
Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up [RELEASE V1D]

Title: Re: [EXPANSION] Mega Man Powered Up [RELEASE V1D]
Post by: The_Broker on December 23, 2012, 08:25:31 PM
I'll be doing the following skins:

Shield Attacker
Sports Roll
Straw Roll
Vacation Roll
Summer Roll
Alley Cat Roll
Ninja Roll
Valentine Roll

I don't have the older Time Man or Oil Man skins so I do not know if they're broken (or if you'll be keeping them anyway.)

The intention is for v2a to be the full re texture using NemZ's textures iirc.  This is more of an incremental update so it only gets the letter bump.

The sprite offsets for the MM1 health/ammo could do with being raised up by one, since they look wierd with the very bottom of the sprite clipping into the ground.

Post by: Geno on July 01, 2013, 05:01:44 PM
I know this is a rather large bump, but it appears that this expansion did something to the Laser Buster. The Laser Buster's flashing is unable to be seen on the actual player sprite (the HUD is fine) when this expansion is loaded, so instead of players flashing green in 3rd person view, they stay with the default colours.

This is what I mean.

Ah crap, you're right.  Apparently I forgot to include
Code: [Select]
#DEFINE LASERCHARGE1 106
#DEFINE LASERCHARGE2 107
in wcolors.  Ah well, v3b is going to require some small rewriting anyway so we'll probably pop out a v1f at that point.

Wow, I found another thing.

Attempting to add a custom bot WAD AFTER adding the Powered Up Expansion PK3 causes whatever bots added after it to be unusable.

Post by: Geno on July 16, 2013, 01:22:15 PM
Well, after I loaded the Powered Up expansion with the launcher, I added several other extra bots (also with the launcher).
When I went to the add bot list in Offline Skirmish, all the bots from the default game, the extra ones inserted BEFORE MMPU, and the MMPU ones appeared on the list, but NOT the ones I added after PU.
I was also unable to use the ADDBOT command to add them.

And after removing MMPU, the extra bots all reappeared.

I`m pretty sure this happens with ALL bots, but the ones I experienced it with were Rokko Chan, my Dalek bot, and geminibro`s Honey Woman.

Myroc, are there any plans to change the MM1 weapons for this mod somehow? I'm just wondering if it was ever considered, but I really wouldn't mind either way.

-Wily castle nomber 2 has a "thing" in the skybox, you shold move the textures a bit, maybe reducing a bit the skybox can solve this.

-Also, I noticed some skyboxes are cuadrangular, żis that intended?

Anyways, congratulations!!! the new skyboxes make more apealing some levels, like wily castle 1 :3

Oh, on a related note: Two small changes I forgot to tell Myroc in the changelog

- Weapon energy cannot be picked up if you are full on your current weapon (unless you have the Energy Balancer)
- Gravity Hold and Wind Storm cause a special death animation for the player.

No the stuff he was talking about were not updated to the new version of the game. This is one of those cases.

In general, assuming the mods you're trying to load are compatible with the core game's current version, should work just fine.

Rockman No Constancy isn't Powered Up. The release cycles for these two mods are completely different and have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Just because a whole lot of mods update doesn't mean all of them have or even will.

I have spoken with Myroc about updating to v4, he said he will talk with the developers about having it done at some point.

Looking up Myroc's profile, it appears his last activity on this forum was on March 27, 2020. That's almost a year from now.

The chances of him answering your question here are low. Try checking if he's active in Discord.

Sorry for bumping again, but I'm just dropping by to make a quick announcement.

With permission from the original creators, I have taken the helm of updating the project.

As a step to updating this expansion, I have restored the original maps to be more stable with the current versions of MM8BDM.
Here are the changes which I have made:
-The general layouts of the maps are largely unchanged, though there might be a few minor tweaks here and there.
-To be compatible with core, the expansion weapons have been removed. Namely, Charge Buster is replaced with Arrow Buster whereas Roll Swing is replaced with Flame Sword. Time Slow and Energy Balancer use their core counterparts.
-Several gimmicks have been updated to be more in line with newer standards.
-Map cards have been added.

Feedback will be appreciated.
