Hi there !

After coming back from my old site where i was killing some nostalgia, i realized that in this forum there's is still not
a way of finding fast (even if it's just a name for googling) the creators of some chars.

I noticed that there is a creators list here, but does not indicate the creations.
And so an ideia was born in my head of bringing the old mugen guild model to a simple subforum here...

It would something like one subforum with a topic for every game that is(was) released with a list of all chars of the game
followed by a list of creators (with link) for each char...

It could be one stickied main thread that i would update and then several threads,
one per game where people can post links, discuss and suggest additions or removals.

What do you guys think ?

We actually tried this once long ago.

The problem is finding dedicated people to keep it updated.

The old way was done like this.

Category
WTF was this named anyway?

Board 1 Capcom
sub forum 1 Street Fighter
sub forum 2 Darkstalkers

Board 2 SNK


Well you get the idea.

Don't remember if it was devided by specific games. If so I'd say sprite style only
Like SFA, SF2, SF3, CvsS, etc

I'll start with company name, then game name, finally, even character can have their respective thread in that hierarchy.

I also suggest an original and edited characters subgroup. the original characters are grouped by the full game they were introduced or misc, and from the misc section, further classified by their author's name.

The edited characters subgroup has the same hierarchy as the licensed character one.

There is one flaw in your plan.
What decides if a character is edited or not that it deserves to fit under the "real" category or the edited one? is it an added move? is it gameplay?
it would be better to leave that variable as a set of the object instead of a separate object alltogether, since the rest of the properties are shared.

Well i agree with the game company separation, but my ideia would be to kiss it as simple as possible
so it could be easily and fast to update...

So it could be something like :

Game Company Board
  one Topic for each game

and the on each topic

a list of chars and creators like:

Marco Rodriguez : MMR
Hotaru Futaba : Jin Kazama, Adamskie
...
...

would also have a edited and original section like mentioned too...

I guess the degree of edition can be difficult to find, but most chars have additions to original gameplay, one way or another,
so i guess is that a good rule would be it kept most it's orignal gameplay, moves and appearance...

i know it could be tough to decide sometimes but without organizing it by game would be rather confusing...

thus my suggestion, instead of separating "edited" chars into a separate thing, just have a variable that states how close or how far from the original it is.
code style or whatever. that way you can note which chars are , lets say, mvc styled kings.

But still included in the "original" game topic, it that it ?
Yes, i think it's a very good idea.  They could then be also group by style for example...

The edited section would have only the original ones then maybe...

I would still put them under the name of the game, because whoever is searching for a king, would look in AOF ( or kof i guess) and then they could select one of the several kings there including the mvc styled one.
For original I would leave those characters that werent really from fighting games.

all in all, your idea reminds me a lot of a mugen wiki, wouldnt it be a better effort to strenghten one of the already existing ones instead of starting one anew?
