Mega Man Discussion / So you want to make a Megaman fangame?
« on: January 02, 2013, 05:16:21 AM »
Now this isn't exactly a topic for your step-to-step guide. But rather advice if you ever want to do so.

1 - Keep it Simple
Usually for any department of a game in general, simple can make many things alot easier to work with. If you went really detailed, it'd be very hard to animate it or do other important things.

Hence why there's some games with really impressive graphics, but really poor gameplay.

2 - Improving the Game
Notice on how each Megaman game tries to improve something that the previous game had as a flaw? Or updates the style in a way?

In a way, it's way to make a game more fresh. Even if it's a fangame, it's still possible to improve or fix the flaws the previous or latest games have.

You might also want to make the game look and feel fresh. It's also recommended to avoid editing pre-existing sprites for a new game feel.

3 - Be Consistent
The benefit of having a team work together is to make things alot faster and easier to get stuff done. But there's one backfire to it.

Even with combined efforts, it's hard to match each other's styles perfectly in any department. There's the thing with incompatibly in programming even if its the same engine, instrument and pitch clashing with Music, different ways of coloring and lines with Sprites, it can go on.

It'd look like a mess if you had so many styles in any forms. It'd look fluent if you had it in a fixed way.

4 - Don't get too far-fetched in ideas or go for the overused
When you make a Megaman fangame, usually the very first thing you might be concerned about it is the Robot Masters themselves.

You probably shouldn't get too far in ideas or overuse anything in particular. It's a cliche to have female Robot Masters, or to go for bots like Laser Man, Killer Man, Nazi Man, eg. Try something new, but not out of the bounds of what could happen in a Megaman game.

I might've missed some things since I'm actually tired during the time I'm typing this.

General Gaming Discussion / General Gaming Footage Thread

Post your own non-MM8BDM footage here.

Edit: I thought of making a separate video thread, but I thought it would be better to merge into one thread.

Quick thought I had, and I was wondering why there isnt anything like this.

It'd really be a great spot for non-Megaman fangames, custom levels made from various games/fangames, indie games made by the Cutstuff users, and even Romhacks.

Not sure if it works well or not.

Maps / The Best Map Pack Ever [Plans?]
« on: October 12, 2012, 04:08:37 PM »
Although I don't got the progress just right away, it's an idea I just have right now.

I'm making this topic right just to remind myself later. I plan to make some maps for it, a little later when I'm out of school.

So what do I mean for the best map pack? It's intentonally bad maps. It's not really maps with bad quality. More like, what to not do in making MM8BDM maps, and the stuff done is completely intentional. Techinally, think of it as a parody of some custom maps and stuff.

And yes, like Cutstuff Community Map Pack, anyone's free to contribute a map to add for the pack.

The WWW board / Random Pokemon Generator
« on: May 19, 2012, 07:35:44 PM »

It's some random little app I found a few days ago. Post whatever generated team you got from that app in here.

Me, EK, and HD used this app to generate a team for one of the gym leaders who can't seemly decide which Pokemon to use.

(Edit: 777th post woooooo! Funny on my 666th was something in a Pokemon topic)


Note: Please read FAQs before posting.

So apparently I'm working on a Pokemon fangame where I intend to have the region based on Cutstuff's community. The engine I'm using is Pokemon Essentials, which is a really really good replica of the main cartridge games, gameplay-wise, it's made for RPG Maker XP though.

Alot of people in Cutstuff would be either trainers or Pokemon. Not everyone will get the roles of a Pokemon, it really depends on how known they are, I still want to use the Gen 1-4 Pokemon in, since they were already programmed in the engine used. Gen 5, I do want in too, since they're part of Pokemon as well.

Screenshots [Outdated]:

Now what exactly you guys can contribute?:
1 - Request to be Minor Trainer or have a Pokemon Role (Throughout PMs)
2 - Suggest things on who should be who in roles list
3 - Beta/Alpha Testers
4 - Database Editors (To make it more closer to Gen 5, since apparently the engine has customizable txt files for Pokemon data and other stuff which vary on the gens. Too tedious for me.)
5 - Spriters (Whatever it's for tiles, or making Gen 4-5 Pokemon R/S/E styled, otherwise they clash and stuff if I just use Gen 4/5 and 3 sprites together.)

And other things that don't really pop in my mind right now.

Update: More roles and stuff, are expanded or something. And I decided to put the FAQs here, so people can shut up on stuff.

Update 2: Added a events spoiler, try checking it frequently to see whatever a new beta or contest is going. It's helpful if you don't want to scroll to the latest page to see info.

Update 3: Added a polls spoiler.

General Gaming Discussion / Game Maker Thread

It's basically a thread for the GM users like me. :D

Go discuss stuff on it, or even ask questions on how to do something.


Hmmm. Came faster then I thought.


Basically it's the reboot of this topic, which was also a reboot of another topic lol: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2694

Now I need Star Dood to start the story somehow. Though I think the story from the other topic isn't going to be connected at all.[/s]

General Gaming Discussion / CPU AI Player Discussion
« on: September 23, 2011, 01:37:20 AM »
Not much really, it's really talking about those CPU players that you see in many games that are mutiplayertu and support computers. I think mainly in those Mario games. So discuss away.

I saw this video on youtube and never really noticed that CPU players can actually cheat, I wonder how many others here noticed that in that game or the other MK games.

I know we can do it in a our profiles. But why not put them in this thread too.

Just post your <whatever> address here, and I'll put it on this list. It's also a good way to contact each other, if you can just look at this list and see what members of Cutstuff has <whatever>.

The WWW board / Super Mario Galaxy 3 (Sprite Animation)

Best Mario sprite animation, ever.
Can someone make a .gif animation of Bowser raping the moon. I want that as an avatar.

Mega Man Discussion / Roleplaying Topic MK 3
« on: June 01, 2011, 11:19:04 PM »
MOVED: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3639

This topic will be missed.

We're basically continuing this topic :
But with some rules and a redone plot. Also, I'm the new leader of it.

Roles (Imported from other topic):
(click to show/hide)

-You must PM Donutyoshi or Star Dood to join the Roleplay topic before you can post. Just ask for whatever role and stuff.

-When you roleplay, make sure you take other people's input to the story in your posts and actually make it seemed like you are involved with other situtations.

-Don't make posts for the RP topic as in Script format. It should be like this for example: Let's say Shadow Man, Top Man, and Needle Man are different posters who intended the roleplay. And their posts are exactly like these quotes.

Quote from: "Shadow Man"
Top Man, stop trying to fail us all! *Slaps Top Man in the face*
Quote from: "Top Man"
*Top Man rubs his face after getting smacked.* Ouch. That really hurts.
Quote from: "Needle Man"
*Points at Shadow and Top* Quit messing around you two! We got some duties to do, you know.
By taking this way, we can get people to actually interact with other roleplayers, and don't have to come up with lines for the other Roleplayers take whoever's role.

-Don't put stupid moments like doing 18+ stuff, Pokemon Battles, .EXE Related Shit, etc.

-Be sure to keep it logical as possible. I know it's not focusing on real life, but doing something impossible like immortality, instant death weapons, god-like stuff, .EXE/Battle Network Shit, etc. Is pretty much stupid. We are basically focusing on the logic of the classic Rockman/Megaman series, not any others.

-Keep the Plotholes minor. Plotholes are basically stuff in the plot left unanswered. And when there's major ones, it's really annoying. So basically for example, when a character dies, don't try to make it mysteriously come back alive.  

-No Mary Sues, it's simple as that. I know it's nice to have super-powerful characters (Ex: Genocide Man) , but it gets bothersome if they avoid constantly avoid dying and use super-powerful attacks against villains like Genocide Man. This also makes it frustrating for people who play in the antagonist (Evil) side who try to kill a certain character.

The Process of Joining The Roleplay:

1. Some guy PMs me/Star Dood on he wants to join.

2. The guy picks [X] character, if not taken by a RP'er.

3. I or Star Dood, gets the message and put the guy's role in the list of roles.

4.The guy can freely contribute to the plot now. Unless he breaks the roles. I did explained about on the rules about it already, if you did not read it yet. READ IT.

5. If the guy with the role of [X] is inactive for most of the time on Cutstuff, banned from Cutstuff or Roleplay Topic, or even requests to quit. The role becomes open to other people who want to join, and if that role is an important character to the plot of the current situation, me or Star Dood will take temporary control of it, until somebody wants to use that character's role.
And for the story:

In the year 20XX, many Robots and Humans were having peace together. It seemed like things were going very smoothly after Dr. Wily's Roboenza crisis. Every Robot was cured after that event.
It seemed all smoothly, until 3 weeks later. Robots are slowly disappearing. And a few Robots return later after with corrupted minds. The robots with corrupted minds have this only thought in mind, Destruction and Power. They try to destroy cities, capture or destroy Robots, and serve their mystery master.

Now we start with this scene of Dog Man running from some corrupted Robots, :

*Dog Man Runs from 3 Corrupted Robots*
Huff-Puff. These Robots are really fast, I better try to find a hiding place! Even my Dog Wave is not strong enough to defeat these bots!
*Dog Man accidentally trips on some random small rock.*
Looks like it's over for me...[/s]

It could have a better title.

The whole point of this thread is to show what kind of expansion, skin, weapon, map, etc that you working on for MM8BDM or atleast previews of upcoming content you guys have for MM8BDM.
