Gladiacloud here.

I struggled a lot, but in the end I managed to finish the second "knight character" in my sign. :)

Some of you will like it a lot, others a little less ... who knows :3

Here is the famous Rocket Knight!

SPARKSTER!

SCREENSHOTS:

I dedicate the character to Xtuart, since he is one of his favorite characters. :)

About the style, I decided to choose the Mugenhunter/Xtuart's graphical style and the Veanko's gameplay, like the Sonic characters, although Sparkster is not a Sega character (is a Konami character). I must add that the use of the tablet for the realization was absolutely essential; In fact, Sparkster is rather difficult to draw from scratch with only pixelart :P

I have nothing to add except to have fun (as I always do) and keep an eye on the upcoming silhouette of my sign. My next character will be surely one of the most requested by fans of Capcom games. I think I have already given a small preview in my Arthur topic :)

... it is not Unknown Soldier ;)


There is a possibility that I open a wip topic of this character,since I'll need all the help possible, especially with regard to the bases.

Stay tuned!

He's very fun to play with, I really like this type of gameplay and the sprites are beautiful. Well done Gladiacloud! :)

Here's some feedback:
- I got some debug flood while playing:
Quote
Warning: Player Sparkster (57) in State 970: Explod Facing parameter must be 1 or -1
- if you attack with EX Rocket Dive while the enemy is jumping he could be stuck in the same animation and fly up or in the same y position (tested against himself), and you can't even attack him since he's got NotHitBy / HitBy codes.
You can easily replicate the glitch by having the enemy at a higher y position than player 1.
I would make it so after a set period of time he goes into the jump fall state or you could fix the y value in the velset.

Barring unforeseen circumstances. There is always the risk that I could not finish her.

Slow and steady wins the race, but there is a darkness... growing inside of me...

And if you provoke it...

I will slay you all.

Bumping this thread, because I recently found the time to download the character to see what all the fuss was about.

While the character is OK (I guess...?), it seems to have more than a few gameplay flaws and lacks a fair bit of polish, of which potential issues I've listed in the spoiler tags:
