I just gotta ask...why are his pauldrons/shoulders different colors? I'm guessing it's suppose to be to create a depth effect like one is in shadow or something, but his legs are both the same color negating this effect and in every palette I've seen made the color difference really stands out and looks silly. Why not just make them the same color in the CS...it would look SO much better...in my opinion.

I don't think you understand what CS (Color Separation) is. The colors shown is not supposed to be a palette used in-game. The parts are different so when people make palettes, they know what colors to use for that part of the character's palette. By making it the same, you are merging the colors together and will change both the pauldrons/shoulders instead of one or the other. People can't make unique palettes if you restrict them.

This right here, if you put restrictions on it, you can't get many options and you get stuck with plain looking palettes.

I think he's referring to his left and right shoulders being shaded differently, maybe?

All of Iron Man's sprites have his background limbs appearing darker than his foreground limbs. Same thing with the leg, but to a lesser extent. I kept that in my sprites for the sake of consistency.

The palettes do seem a bit TOO dark, tho, and I'm not sure why. It doesn't look that harsh with the default colors I used when I posted the sprite but most of the palettes posted have a significant difference (you can especially tell in the armors that are all a single color).

Maybe the shades are misaligned in the palette template? or on my sprite? Maybe every shade is supposed to be moved one space towards the next lighter shade? (It looked fine when I was using the default colors, but maybe there are two colors that were very similar and I messed up? Either way let me know).

The issue is only with the Hulkbuster's left arm. My advice is that you move over each of the colors in that arm over to its very next lighter shade. If it still looks too dark, then maybe move it two shades over instead.

Does that make sense? I can do it for you, if you need.

Better? only did the pauldron because the parts of the arm and the gauntlet i think are fine.

I think so, yeah. I checked my original shading again, just to be sure and it's fine after all. I based the shading on the first frame you see in that animation and they use the same colors, so neither of us "screwed up", technically.

The problem is that the difference is more abrupt when his arm is thicker, so compensating for that by going one shade lighter is a good compromise.

A palette from me - Iron Man 1 (Mark III)


So you guys are talking about a palette cycle issue. Here's the thing, In the 2 sprites in the first column on the left look at the tights, chest and boots, they are lighter than the other sprites. Also, I think the heavy artillery sprites have a very dark line, it's clashing with the rest of the sprites.
Dragon Ball Super is about:  Lazy plot, kawai eyes, incoherent levels of power and deus-ex machina (all the time).

Still planning that out at the moment but he is going to have a very extensive moveset.

I need some help with scaling.

I have to use the Xscale & Yscale in the system file to scale him. however his stance is taller then his other sprites so i have a separate Angle Draw in his -2 States to scale his stance. The issue i'm having is just for 1 tick he uses the Xscale & Yscale and then after that 1 tick he uses the Angle Draw i have set for him. How do prevent him from scaling during that 1 tick? Sorry if this sounds confusing.

EDIT: I figured it out. I added this to the standing state.
Code:
[State 0, AngleDraw]
type = AngleDraw
trigger1 = Time<1
trigger2 = Time>0
value = 0
scale = 1,.93

What the hell... he's not to scale?? :S

The only other person I know who has also used the sprite is duracelleur. Did he have to scale it too? I wish one of you had told me before I went and animated it. My sprites are meant to be accurate and useable with the corresponding official sheet. If you have to scale it, it kinda defeats the purpose. Let me know if you want me to fix it. :P

Duracelleur resized all the other sprites except the stance. Don't worry about it graphicus its fine.
