Hi.

I got bored of my old Alpha Storm for Winmugen and have decided to update it to 1.1 and redo the roster.

For more up to date progress you can follow along here:
http://gbgbg.tumblr.com/

But I'll post any major updates in this thread.

Done:
180730
Title Menu BG animations
Title Menu fonts
Options BG animations

180723
  • Re-did, slowed down and scaled DG's animations for 720p. I scaled up the BG and clouds to reduce the amount of repitition, but left the grass at 100%. Seems to have worked well enough without a jarring difference in resolution. This was the bulk of the work for this, so I'm glad it's out of the way and I can work on UI design elements now.
  • Figured out portrait placement, and how to scale hi-res characters (hooray, it's character/author specific.....)

Left to do:
Portrait template with source game logos and button layouts.
Fonts - more fonts
Redesign of the team menus
Intro Animations - possibly rescale the old one? I never did finish the animations for it.
Logo Design
Logo Animation
Select screen 9000-0 overlay/border
Vs screen
Winquote screen
Lifebars? Big, big maybe.

Excuse my lazy screenshot, but I figured I should do an update :P

Slowly working on this as the days go by.

Team menu is done at this point, not pictured here though. Could use some custom icons for the team select, and I have an idea for an animation i want to do. Thats for later though.

Last time I did custom portrait sizes for 9000-0, which seemed like a great idea until i had to make hundreds of them.

Sticking to square this time...

Nice!

Thanks :)

glassbox I seen your screen pack before, I remember when my son use to talk about your screen pack, this when I was just a green horn on mugen. well becuase my son got me into mugen haha

anyways. I have question for you
Do you know how to change and make your own fonts for the Option screen ?

if not. its very easy to do. its depend on what format of font you want to go with.
as for me.. I made my own fonts for my Option screen for my Super mugen screen pack
these Fonts are not the FNT that you are thinking off.  Mugen 1.0 and 1.1 has changed sense you were away
now Mugen 1.0 and 1.1 support FNT V2 and so you can ether use True type font on your option screen or......
you can do what I did and make the fonts from scratch and have it as Bitmap font.
Here my Option screen from Super mugen screen pack. this is called Bitmap Font. they use Definition file like a mugen stage and share .SFF when saving on the fighter Factory 3.0.1
here the picture


if you do choose bitmap for your option screen here some word of advice
be sure to choose bright color and not Dark color when making a bitmap fonts for your Option screen for mugen 1.0 and 1.1

Well, life got busy as usual lol. This is still on going, but free time is in short supply at the moment.

Thanks oldgamer!

Yes I do, I made all the fonts for the old AlphaStorm. I've actually resized them already and converted them, but decided to take advantage of the new font engine rendering crisp round edges.  I noticed the defs on some of the new default fonts and played around a bit with the colour change.

Interesting new feature, I'll have to explore it more. I think they can control the style on an ttf's as well? I'll have to revisit that one.
