as topic says: my powerbar is always invisible. i installed several other lifebars to make sure it wasnt my fault because i messed something up but it dont matter which lifebar i install, the powerbar is never visible.

i upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1 and in 1.0 the lifebars are visible.
i ve donwloaded some other lifebars especially for 1.1 and thge power bar is nevertheless gone.

i already tried to edit the y-value in postioning in the fight def because i thought its because i used the system fit = 1 in mugen.cfg and that messed things up but it helped zero. im really frustrated and confused since im sitting on this problem for days. anyone so kind to help me pls?

thx in advance and have a nice week :)

i just figured out that when playing on 640x480 resolution the powerbar shows up.
when i go to 1280x720 the lifebars are a bit bigger but they stay in place but the powerbars wont show up at all.
so my guess whas that this resolution thing messed things up.

but from my understanding - normally i just had to set the y- value higher so the powerbars will go upwards but thats not the case. i tried in 100 and 50 steps.
452 is the default value, so i tried 500, 550, 600, 650, 700 etc but no sight of the powerbar. what am i doing wrong? is there something i dont recognize?

so heres the complete entry from the fight.def, maybe this helps

The issue has to do with their powerbars positions. They don't pos properly when switching to 16:9. Ud have to edit them yourself. More often then not they are just below the bottom, so just increasing their Y pos will make them appear. Just make sure you increase the Y pos for every sprite that the powerbars use and by the same amount. Recommend using the Sprite Alignment tool in FF to edit multiple sprites at once.

I dont do screen packs, but with characters, if you have the scale bumped up, and movement is magnified.
With the screen pack you may want to decrease the value? If it's under the screen and you need to raise it up, that's usually a decrease.
I'd think you'd need to cut the value in half because it's getting multiplied. Right?
But then again 
480-452=28
28*1.5=42
720-42=678  <<<Try this value for
p1.pos    = 299,452
