Title: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger - Jmorphman coding!

Yeah! This is one of the secret projects I've been working on!
To be honest, yes, he'll be using a LOT of Captain Commando for bases, but don't worry, I plan to throw in more unique stuff, especially for Special and Super moves. Here are a few samples:
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/Billy_intro_warp.gif) (http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/Billy_intro_morph.gif) (http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/Billy_SK.gif)

-Why Billy? I need dat Red Ranger yo.
 Because Billy's the underdog! Jason or Tommy would've been the obvious choises. Plus, Tommy has that additional armor.
 Though with helmetswaps, it'll be quick to get a Black, Red or Green Ranger (green with the added attributes) along.
 Reusing the base for the females is a no-go for me, that's just not sexy enough for me dawg.

-Has a movelist been planned?
 I'm tinkering with it, yeah. I got some ideas. I'll probably have him use his Tricera Lance for Supers only. I WON'T be adding assists, be it other Rangers or Zords. This guy can take proper care of himself! I want to have a lot of cool martial arts stuff instead. For example:
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/Billy_540kick.gif)
C'mon son, you know I'm putting in some Scott Adkins action.

At the moment, this is what's finished:
-idle (not animated yet)
-all guards (standing, crouching, jumping)
-all jumps (forward, up, backwards), and jump-landing
-crouching
-turning and crouch turning
-dash
-get up
-standing strong kick
-jumping weak punch and kick
-540 kick
-warp intro

A couple of other animations are in progress.
Hope it peaks your interest and you'll be following!

For gameplay, probably something like a mixture of Mahvel and SF3.
Yeah Billy's head could use some tweaking, that's why I didn't do more sprites of him yet.
As far as Z2 interaction, well I'll at least give him the twist, flip and backbroken KO states, but I think that's as far as I'm gonna take it.
Sprite-wise, he looks quite different from the Z2 characters.
And as far as finding time to work on all the things; first off I am a freelancer which leaves me with plenty of spare time, and secondly I still don't have another girlfriend (let alone any sort of real-life friends), that would take a lot of time away. Thirdly, I'm just a pretty badass spriter I suppose!

I agree with every single design-wise decision you've made. Mixing the movie armor with the series' helmet was the best thing you could do. He looks freaking badass!
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Bizarro Santamorphman on April 17, 2014, 03:36:53 am
Not a big fan of the shoulder armor parts. it just odd, not being flush with the rest of the suit.

Reusing the base for the females is a no-go for me, that's just not sexy enough for me dawg.
I strongly disagree; neither the show nor the movie's versions of the suits were particularly prone to showing off the actresses/stuntpeople's bodies. The uniforms are pretty unisex, besides the skirt. Which wasn't even in the movie!

I think it'd make much more sense to make some minor modifications to the male base (taking in the waist, reducing the amount of upper body mass, etc.) but not to an extreme amount. Essentially, recognizably female but not like coming off as wearing skintight spandex (cuz it's armor!). Not even the show was like that!

For gameplay, probably something like a mixture of Mahvel and SF3.
Wait what, how exactly would that work? They're pretty diametrically opposed. :S

FU*K YES!!!!!!  I want to see a good power ranger, and billy to boot.  I loved billy, he was my favorite ranger.  I will  be following this project, oh yes I will.  Is he going to be color separated so he can have the three diamonds on his chest plate?  If not, I really don't mind at all.  God yes, a good ranger in the works.  Awesome.

God, my hands are trembling too much XP

Edit: he better have the power lance and not that weird thunder stinger from the movie >..>

Marvel and SF3 mixtures are actually good. Blue Ranger can use his power lans in several ways as he will be using it in super moves. He can use it as one or just as two. Gambit, Donatello and Rolento are good bases for moves like that.
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Balthazar on April 17, 2014, 08:21:53 am
Thanks everyone, you're quite nice!
As for the gameplay, eh forget about it for now, this is the Sprite Project thread after all!
As with Z2 chars I can do cameos like puttys but only in intros and such.
Anyway, who says I'll keep it up and work on the females. Also it wouldn't be a crime to make them less unisex from the male body.
Welp, sorry to hear you feel that way about the shoulder armor, JMM.

Yes won't be using that weird Thunder Stinger from the movie.
Eh I dunno, maybe it'll be a fun tool he can use himself to proper to various spots, or work like Web Swing.
At least it'll give him a unique feature to the other Rangers.
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Bizarro Santamorphman on April 17, 2014, 08:24:12 am
Rolento would indeed be a good source for that kind of stuff; he's propelling himself and pogoing off that thing all over the place, like a lunatic with far too many grenades and knives on his person.

Knew there were Rangers in your future with all the practice one-off sprites. These sorts of topics are why I feel like you are secretly working on Young Gouki still. :D Anyway, you're an incredibly prolific sprinter with an eye for quality and I'm looking forward to all the future project releases to come.

Especially a decent Ranger!

That doesn't sound like a bad idea :-) and you could use Billy Kane for some bases as well as the others mentioned, at least the sprites where his staff doesn't split.  Heh, Billy using Billy bases XP

Post by: Tiny-kun on April 17, 2014, 06:17:43 pm
I got an idea for one of Billy's moves, let me explain you:

In Super Cosplay War Ultra, there's a MMPR cosplayer, Alex (one of my MUGEN WIPs from this game), who can cosplay the 6 of them in various of his attacks, just like in Pocket Fighter/Super Gen Fighter Mini Mix. In one of his combos, Alex cosplays Blue Ranger and attacks with his Blue Spear:
(http://i.imgur.com/ljnWznd.png)
making 2-3 hits and also makes fall the enemy in last hit, think about Billy Kane's Rapid Cane move. I think could be a good idea for an attack ;)
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Omega on April 17, 2014, 07:23:09 pm
Take a look at this Balthazar. The move that starts at 0:23 could be a inspiration for a super move.

Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: The Sudden Rarity on April 18, 2014, 02:44:53 am
That would be an awesome super move to see.

Off topic sorta: if you plan on making the male head swaps and the females would you do Jason, Zack and Trini, or Rocky, Adam and Aisha?  IMO, I think it'd be best to do the original lineup, also to honor the late Thuy Trang (Trini) by doing her justice in your style, Balthazar.  But its all up to you, if you do it of course.
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Balthazar on April 18, 2014, 10:26:58 am
Like I said I don't want to plan ahead too much (or at all) but yeah I'll definitely go with Jason, Zack and Trini for Red, Black and Yellow (though the replacements could still be in as they're only really shown in the morphing intro and perhaps a winpose Oh and the voices I suppose). Could be a config. to switch between them).
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!

Now there's an idea.  Man, I wish I could help more since I'm a die hard fan of MMPR but I have no computer and no sprinting skills.  The only thing I can do is suggest stuff from the series ><

Oh, and the spin kick is coming along nicely,  looks near perfect.  A possible dodgeroll idea could be more like Vegeta's Wolverine flip for dodgerolling back and for dodgerolling forward it could be like Goku's flikflak.  A ranger has to have flare when escaping.

EDIT: and if you implement the dagger/blaster, you could use Jill as a base for the dagger attacks and possibly for the blaster.

Oh hell yes.  That's certainly an awesome morph, though I think the sparks should be a blue instead of a green, but that's just me.  You pound out stuff quick, man.  Keep up the good work.

I have another suggestion: for whenever he uses his power lance in attacks, you should use hits parks like they used in the show when weapons were used.  Like a sparkler going off.

I used green because that's what it was in Zeo morphs...may not make sense but I liked that.

Hey Balthazar, I was going to ask if you planned on incorporating the power morpher sequence from the show/game into it (pretty much the sprites on the right side of that image below. I could only find Tommy/Jason's with the sprites there, but I was just mostly curious on if you planned to include that as part of the transformation in the intro.

That is a great animation and I like the spark alot. Why not make sense? Does it have too? Billy never became a zeo ranger so with a little twist he can have it's effects and be like one in MMPR style as you are always including variatons. I support this for sure.

Uuhhh you're talking in-scale, right :P? Well I don't think even just it's head would fit in the screen! Or it would have to be far in the background, but not all stages (like indoor ones) would allow that to look believable).
Stage would be nice ;)

Hm I don't know, I specifically didn't do that because I thought it would be weird. Nothing wrong with a quick and dirty ingame morph I think ;)
Well who knows, I could resprite it. We'll see.

you could probably just have the megazord hand sit him down similar to jin Saotome but that's a thought for down the road should you feel its worth doing as an intro. As for the actual character development I love how you convert live action moves into mugen and can't wait to see what you reveal next for him

Post by: XANDERAC on April 22, 2014, 08:56:23 pm
If you did, and your plan was always to basically leave him as a template for future creators to make the rest, it may be worth spriting at least, pretty much so you could make a placeholder where people could swap out whichever one they wanted. Either way, he's coming along really nicely, and I really look forward to his progression.

I left out the glasses because he didn't wear them in the movie, though I did intent to make alternate versions of the morphing intro that had Billy portrayed in different looks, mostly his Season 1 look with the overalls.

I'd like to see the overalls one happen as well.  And I didn't know he was blonde.  I thought he was a brunette.  Guess I made him too dark XD oh well, you do what you think is best.  I was only wanting to help a little.

He's got very dirty blond hair; a midway between Balthazar's and The Sudden Freak's would look best I think.
Hm I don't know, I specifically didn't do that because I thought it would be weird. Nothing wrong with a quick and dirty ingame morph I think ;)
Well who knows, I could resprite it. We'll see.
I think it'd look pretty cool.

Was never a fan of the Power Rangers. I actually really dislike them. Always good to see more sprites from Balth, though. Animation is top-notch as always. Look forward to seeing more.
My thoughts exactly (I don't dislike them though, I just don't care).
But seeing these awesome animations come to life will be another joy for the Mugen community. :)

Maybe they just grew up with one of the more obscure/less popular ones like Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills? Either way, I think it's cool to see this, just because after 2/3 seasons of the show I hadn't focused on that show in quite a few years, and this is pure nostalgic awesomeness.
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Balthazar on April 25, 2014, 10:06:05 am
Thanks! Yeah you don't have to be a major fan or have seen the other series to be have some nostalgic love for the series.
Personally I never watched anything other then Season 1~4...I probably never even saw the end of season 4 (that leads into Zeo).
When Amy Jo Johnson left the show my interest just took a nosedive. I think I was like 8 or 9 years old. Anyway, yeah I'm one of those guys, who's first crush was the original Pink Ranger ;)
I AM watching Dino Thunder at the moment, but I don't think I'm interested in watching any of the others.  The only series I might watch some time is Zeo, but that would just be to get some more Tommy and Jason action.

I think pretty much just recall Mighty Morphin and Turbo being the only ones I recall a fair bit from, the only exception has been the odd reunion special like the one where they had all the red rangers together, or the crossover with the Ninja Turtles.

Post by: Omega on April 26, 2014, 01:50:12 pm
The 10. Anniversary with all red rangers wasn't bad actually. Anniversary's don't have to be accurate or common to the story. It was good to show all red rangers in order. It is just a special wich doesn't follow the actual story. The crossover with TMNT was great aswell. It had to happen sooner or later.

i know you think this is a joke, but dont discourage people from showing support to others and dont shitpost on project threads. Anyone that doesnt koow you have been doing that characters for years without a release date might think you are serious and avoid posting compliments to others creators for fear of more wips being cancelled. This is not helpful.

I agree with that. Every creation deserves it's supporters. Besides that, creators aren't racing with each other for a proper place in Mugen since each of them are unique.

For a possible winpose, you should do something like the winpose from MMPR for the SNES and have him teleport away.  Of course, this would be a second/final round winpose.

Balthazar, Twinimage gave some ideas:

Quote
Some more thoughts:
If Billy loses and lies on the ground, he should un-morph to human form. MMPR were always un-morphing when they were defeated.

Intro/win pose idea: have him ride in the flying beetle car Billy invents! Or if you create a stage for him, have the car in the background.

http://dumbbaby.net/tv/i/mmpr_117/12.jpg (http://dumbbaby.net/tv/i/mmpr_117/12.jpg)

You could try finding sound effects from the show for the "swoosh" sounds when Billy punches or kicks. If you listen during the opening theme intro, you can hear the sounds I'm talking about.

He also needs the voice clip from the episode "Life's a Masquerade" when he says "Its time for molecular transmutation". That would be kinda neat XP, and Twin's ideas are awesome.  Why didn't I think of them *face palm*
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Movie version)!
Post by: Omega on April 29, 2014, 11:55:49 pm
Great screenshots. Another idea is to give Billy a special winpose with today's technology. It could be cool to see him holding a iphone or a tablet and communicate with Zordon on screen. It is to show that Billy understands any kind of technology. lol

Another idea is to give him a morph intro with other costumes he wears in the show. In the Episode "Life's A Masquerade", he cosplayed Sherlock and fought a Frankenstein monster. In the Episode "Power Rangers Punks" he became a punk with Kimberly because of Rita's spell. Those costumes could be references to it's episodes. He could even start as the Blue Ninja and morph into Blue Ranger.

He also needs the voice clip from the episode "Life's a Masquerade" when he says "Its time for molecular transmutation".

He cosplayed as Sherlock in that episode and his morphing line is there too.

Alright I went with the browner hair, though I made it a bit lighter then the hair from the Sudden Freak's sprite (more desaturated really). Here's a sprite of Billy with his classic overalls, striped shirt (will be a bitch to animate) and glasses:
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/billyseries.png)
I do plan to animate the human sprite, he has to bust out the morpher from behind his back (where the hell do they actually keep it??) and bring it out in front, the classic morphin animation.
Yeah his Thunder Slinger will most definitely be represented in a special move, be it as a wall-cling move or a full-on Web Sling-based move.

Balthazar, I was wondering, are you planning to impliment any special attacks based on the weapons Billy has used in the series?

Like the blade blasters (standard fire arm), Power Lance (regular, charged, and sepperated), and Anti-sonic foam gun?

Looking damn good, Balthazar.  And where the morpher comes from is on the belt loop behind them, shown in I think the third or fourth part of the Green with Evil mini series.  It shows Jason reaching behind his back to the belt loop.

The human form will get more frames, it'll be an actual animation of the morph call, not just the still sprite I've produced so far.

No worries about helping your mates, gives me some time to finish some things myself (like the walk cycle and perhaps the gethits as well).

It would be cool if the sparks could resemble the actual power rangers sparks that they do in the show when hitting and anemy or being hitted.

Power rangers are well know for sparks,colored smoke bombs and explosions XD

The enemy is always exploded when it's defeated. Instead of a normal K.O, you could make the opponent explode at the end of the final battle.

Also, Street Fighter X Tekken hitsparks could give you some idea's for explosion type hitsparks.

Nope, if explosion there is, old school explosions such as those used in Z2 chars are better than flashy ones found in CVS or SFxT.

If they're doing the sparky sort of hit sparks like the show, I think that fancy transparent hires ones would work best to convey that sense of unreality, personally.

Great WIP, I like you're doing a Power Ranger too, I've seen this before but I wanted to talk about sparks :P

P.S: Make a poll :ninja:

How about you guys make a config file so you can choose between hi-res and low-res hitsparks?

Problem solved?

Nope, if explosion there is, old school explosions such as those used in Z2 chars are better than flashy ones found in CVS or SFxT.

You forgot to Mention Capcom Fighting Jam Hitsparks

If the opponent is going to blow up, you've gotta have him turn away. They all do that, right?

Yeah turn to face the camera as the enemy falls down in slowmotion, and explodes as they hit the ground.
I haven't worked on his sprites for a while, but it's not forgotten!

I'm sure that works excellent as a K.O state.

Blue Ranger could also have glowing blue hands like in this video at 0:32 in some special moves.
The Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xdsuIO1Gdk

Offtopic: We should open a thread in Sprite Project like that "Sprite Sheet Expension Thread" and let spriters contribute for Kamen Rider, Super Sentai/Power Rangers based sprites. Each support could become very great characters.

Post by: F. James Fernandez on May 17, 2015, 02:19:51 pm
I dont think the sprite work would had been the problem. Its more that we cant clone what Balth had plan on billy for gameplay. Thats the tricky part. So unless someone sprites and he is behind the game play i kinda dont see the point.

Post by: RamzaNeko on May 17, 2015, 03:45:51 pm
I said we can shade and finish animations it not design the gameplay or anything.
If  he 's really out and can't do anything more so theres no point

Post by: Balthazar on May 17, 2015, 03:55:45 pm
The project was a very cool idea but at this point I honestly can't see myself ever picking it up again.
If people want to continue it, well almost everything I've done was pretty much Captain Commando bases.
If @O Ilusionista:  is fine with it, I guess I can just post his current spritesheet here
(though I don't seem to have it on my PC here, but I know it's on my other PC which I won't be on for at least another week).

Something that was in progress:
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/Billy_spinkick.gif)

The spritestye might be hard to replicate at first, but it could be a learning process. If Ramza or whoever picks it up, I'll be sure to keep an eye out and help where needed. MFG need more spriters at my level! I want to see more (sprite)projects like this one, coming from other folks! So continueing this project might be a good way to learn some tricks, I dunno.


if it wasn't low res :D
You don't have to remind your hatred towards low res sprites in every message you post, you know :P. We're aware.

Ill start doing commissions and show love for low res but at least I dont mind going to low res, people on the other hand get too over whelmed when it comes to HR and HD.

he managed to escape from cybaster's basemant so that's why he isn't as active as before

and wow, i ran into this topic a few days ago and when i noticed the last date it was updated i got sad that it was abandoned.

then, i noticed activity today and got all happy again only to realize it was to officialy declare the project DEAD or at the very least on life support. D:

It's just such a waste.
Those sprites are totally amazing Balthazar, and was came to my mind when I've seen them is a full roster of Power Ranger chars.
I tell you because it's rare, really rare when I have this feeling, and it was precisely because your sprites are just incredible here.

I understand that you doesn't have time or motivation.
I hope someone will work again on it. ;)

Yes he is. I'v watched all his videos and I always go back to it. Even commented on his work and how it influences our animations. I rather look at that then trying to find characters to base attacks off and the fact that he provides different angles for the same attack is awesome. Definitely going on my "Thank you Credit list"

Alrighty sry guys but I can see that animation isn't going in the right direction.
His stance is too wide for the landing you're going for, Ramza.
Something like this will be better:
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/balthafixspinkickbluerangersasdlf.gif)

ps. If you want to replicate Balthazar's sprite style. please don't ever ever again use sprite copies with just 1 limb moving and nothing else :P That's good for subtle animations but not big ones like this jumping spin kick. Redraw the whole sprite!
For inbetween frames like this I suggest using Photoshop or Paint.net to rotate some sections.

So, if any good coder wanna pick this, I would be glad. Balthzar work is just too good to be unreleased.

Interesting. I'm curious as to how much is done. Balthazar did an amazing job on these sprites and I wouldn't mind picking it up if it's a good place and I don't need too many extra sprites.

how much would you pitch in to see this (sprite)project back on track?
I won't really be interested unless I can raise, I dunno, 500 dollar or something.

The place to pay would be here:

BUT please don't just send me a bit of money, I'd like to know if more people are willing to add to the donations pool
before giving everyone the green light and send over the payments. If I can't raise at least 300 dollars in total, I won't do it,
so I'd have to refund all the donations for Blue Ranger which would be bothersome.

That'll be alright, his stance isn't animated yet so I won't mind editing that leg.

Alright so we're at roughly $40 now,

I get you wanna make your money i'm all for that but don't you think $500 is alot to ask for .. for just 1 character that your planning to "pick up again" anyway? sorry if i'm offending anyone or yourself balthy but i just don't understand why so much lol.

He hasn't made it official for 500 dollars yet, he pretty much said at least 300 dollars so that's probably the most he'll go for unless people still decides to give him money

$500 for a mugen character o.O .. commissions is one thing balthy .. but asking people for $500 for a character that YOU want to sprite anyway is another lol.

I get you wanna make your money i'm all for that but don't you think $500 is alot to ask for .. for just 1 character that your planning to "pick up again" anyway? sorry if i'm offending anyone or yourself balthy but i just don't understand why so much lol.

This was a cancelled project until recently. He is not doing this just for himself but to also provide sprites to the Mugen community as many were disappointed that this wasn't coming to fruition. You probably misunderstood his post when he asked for money. If he doesn't make the $500, he'll probably not do the sprites. The choice is ours - fund the project and get the blue ranger sprites or don't and simply move on. No one is obliged to.

300 dollars for a full high quality spriteset is way cheaper than what most people would ask for.

professional full sprite sheets are expensive. thats why.

he doesnt want to sprite it unless other people show enough interest to pay him for it.

you wouldnt get anything otherwise. A character of this quality would be on the 2k, and upwards ( Borghi did a fully sprited character for that and it wasnt on this sprite quality)  if people arent interested in having him work on it they just shouldnt ocntribute, but 500 is not too much for something like this.

Balthazar is an incredible spriter, and I think that this is normal that he is trying to get money for his work.

If you are not happy with it, nobody will put a knife on your neck, dude. (I tell it friendly, ofc).

I would add that if it could bring more Balth stuff in the Mugen world, it's alright.
I'm still pretty broken those days, even if I'm working now but I'll think about it maybe for a future commission. :)

I still have the full power rangers team in my mind, like a dream. xD

2k? As in $2,000? And upwards? Really? Damn, you could feed a lot of hungry people for that.

You sure it's not usually ONE MILLION DOLLARS (in Dr. Evil voice)? What about that one time that guy paid fifty million for that ultra super cool unique CvS SNK Guy? That was pretty awesome. Totally worth it.

if you are doing animation professionally it can get to 30k depending on the ammount of work and style.
Its a full time job.

A normal character can have around 400 frames( if we count down, its usually far more)
2000/400= 5 dollars per frame.

Thats not a lot and taking a job of that kind means not being able to take other type of jobs. Its a huge commitment. 2k is under what I would expect a professional artist would get for his work.

Also 2k could feed a lot of hungry people? Yeah, one person, the one that would be doing the work for the money. Its called a comission.

[strike]Well, think about it: a dollar a sprite, 500+ sprites for a simple but complete character (look at how many sprites make up KFM and he's complete).  In a way that seems pretty fair if you ask me.[/strike]

I like characters tokusatsu genre, but the value is somewhat exorbitant, I think Balthazar gave the signal for 500 Dollars, to see the maximum he would be able to raise.

But if he really wants $ 500, we take into consideration that there no are so many power rangers fans for Mugen and also the Mugen no longer have as many users for to collect such amount, in my view, he may get a maximum of 100 to 150, maybe 150 in one month

guys, we're lucky balth is ONLY doing this for 500, that's a steal for his kind of work. 5 bucks per frame, now times that by how many frames balthazar does, look at his Z2 work, they're a good average of just how much he animates not even counting all the cameos, all the effects and stuff.

Post by: Balthazar on March 13, 2016, 09:50:10 am
Quite some people were sad to see the Blue Ranger project cancelled.
I tried to keep it on life-support by leaving the remains in the hands of other spriters, which did not work out.
People want to have this char in their mugen and there IS a big lack of (at least quality, larger-sized sprites) tokusatsu characters available.
I'm trying to do you guys a favor. You'd be doing me a favor in return by gathering together with small doses of money (leave the pitchforks at home) and basically paying me a month's rent. 500 dollars is an absolute steal for this work. Professionally this would be like 20k if not more (I have done professional sprite work and I could earn 200 dollars with a 5-minute recolor and clean-up job). But I won't expect to raise that kind of amount so I tried setting a pretty low minimum. If I can't reach the (honestly, pathetic) amount of 300 dollars between I dunno, 10-30 people, I won't even bother and I'll put the final nail in Blue Ranger's coffin.
If I come off as an ass it's because I just woke up but  I'm just being honest, I'm not going to sugercoat this.
And I indeed won't come to your house to put a knife in your neck if you don't play along. I have people for that.

Also 2k could feed a lot of hungry people? Yeah, one person, the one that would be doing the work for the money. Its called a comission.

I wasn't commenting on Balthazar, just that 2k sounds a little high for a mugen character that the person paying for it has no control over at all. In the professional world, artists get paid like that as a part of a salary to do a lot of work for a company, and they do the work that is given to them, for a specific project for that company. This is not really a commission,  it's a project the artist wanted to do but then lost interest in. Which is cool, Balthazar is a fantastic sprite artist. I'm not saying anything negative towards him at all.

Let's be honest...this is mugen. You may or may not get a finished character you pay for. People take money and disappear, or whatever. You have zero real control. You just can not compare it to a professional job. And please, I am not talking about Balthazar with this comment, just the 2k thing. I have nothing but respect for Balthazar.

And you have never worked at a homeless shelter. 2k goes a looong way towards feeding people who need it. It feeds a lot of people. Just a comment on the 2k thing, not on anything related to Balthazar. No need to white knight at me, what I said was only directed towards that 2k comment, Balthazar's work is worth whatever he and the person/people paying for it feels it is. So there's no need to attack me. Never said $300 or $500 was too high or too anything. If you really want a Blue Ranger, you could not pick a better sprite artist to make one.

I just thought the 2k thing was funny, seeing how often mugen characters that are paid for never even get finished. It was off topic though and I really don't want to start anything. I apologize for getting involved in someone else's thread like that. I'm done now, sorry Balthazar.

i suppose.. i guess i'm just ignorant to it since i'm not really an artist or spriter or anything like that.. i just think there's more to put money towards first than have a character made.. as i said before.. i'm not against it i just find it to be a high amount.. and i'm aware of balthy's quality.. its really good work .. but if he's working on it because he wants to.. why should people need to pay for something he wants to do anyway is what i just don't understand .. thats like da Vinci asking for money to paint the mona lisa meanwhile he's inspired to do it anyway lol.. just doesn't make sense to me.

now its different if he's COMMISSIONED to do it.. i get it at that point.. because he's making something that isn't of any interest to him AT ALL.

EDIT: In terms of commissions not working out for me, I think the only commission that I didn't EVENTUALLY get was from this guy (http://mugenguild.com/forum/profile/zox-80960) who refused to let me pay him until I was 100% satisfied, and when I gave pointers on what improvements he could do when he showed me his WIP, he basically said something like "I'm not obligated to do shit because you didn't pay me and besides a bunch of people wanted commissions before you" (even though he literally said that I was the first person to ever try to commission him).

This is still just a test thing, that's why I'm telling people not to send any money yet, just tell how much they WOULD pitch in.
 I might do just the remaining basics or just the gethits or something like that if we can't get any higher amount. This'll be openly discussed ofcourse.

Post by: Balthazar on March 14, 2016, 03:59:55 pm
Alright Torre that's great, and yeah I did remember you were also the saving grace for SSJ Goku Z2 ;)
OK so let's say alltogether there is 300 dorrah raised.
What we can do is cap it here, as I don't feel we'll be able to raise much more right now though it won't cover the entiredy of the character sprite sheet.
I don't have the sheet here on this pc so I can't remember exactly what is finished up until this point (I'll have it tomorrow though).
I do believe he has most basic movement done (walking, jumping, crouching), just a handful of gethits and very few attacks.
With 300 dollars I can choose to either:

1. Finish the remaining basics + gethits
2. Finish the remaining attacks (standing + jumping + crouching)

Special Moves I wouldn't really want to get into yet as we can discuss these when the other stuff is done.
Also keep in mind that this would be quite easily converted into the other (male) rangers, mostly Red and Black,
with just the helmet replaced in all the frames and a palette will take care of the rest.
Well that and, some new Special/Super moves.
So out of 1 or 2, what do you guys prefer most? Or do you think 300 dollars (only about 270 euros) warrants both 1 + 2?
I don't really feel that, plus I don't really know how much time I'll have to work on it so I don't want to set a deadline.
But you should know by now I always come through with things like this.

If we (at least the people who've agreed to pitch in those amounts of money) have come to an agreement, then I'll give the green light to make the transfers and I'll begin work on it.

Alright well if you're pitching in the remainer, which would be 110 dollars, that's the biggest cut out of everyone,
so you're gonna have the biggest say in the matter ;)
Still, let's wait a day to see everyone else's opinion.

Post by: scramblecat on March 14, 2016, 07:05:18 pm
well if i pitch in another 100 on my end, what would that accomplish?
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (new hope with crowdfunding!)
Post by: Balthazar on March 14, 2016, 07:09:10 pm
Well if you add another 100 dollars which bumps the total up to 400, I can probably do 1+2?
So that'll include finishing the basics, gethits AND the standard crouching/standing/jumping attacks.

That would be nice man. This wip has so much potentional. The Blue Ranger is one of the smartest. I am happy that many people here wants to see it shine. We definitly need a Great Super Sentai/Power Ranger Character for Mugen.

Post by: Balthazar on March 14, 2016, 07:23:35 pm
Thanks man! When all is set, the first thing I'll probably do is finish this (probably be something like a f+SK attack):
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/misc/balthafixspinkickbluerangersasdlf.gif)
And fix up his stance as Diepod suggested/mentioned (that left leg of his is bent so awkward!)
Once that is finalized I can start to animate the stance as well (good thing I didn't do that yet!)

Hey, if greenlit, I could try my hand at color separation for this.  I had already tried a little bit earlier last year, so I'll post up the two mockups.

Simple separation

Thanks dude! I'm back in my other living quarter now and I'll dig into my Blue Ranger sheet again, I'll get things started!
I guess everyone else who've mentioned they'd contribute, can transfer their donations as well,
should you agree with what I suggested (that combined amount'll cover the remaining basics, gethits and basic attacks).

I finished this move, which I suppose could be a forward+Strong Kick. I also reframed that second kick,
reusing the landing of the first, has one edited frame for better leg positioning. With yet just one new frame,
the two kicks flow brilliantly together. For what purpose I have not yet decided.

If this is satisfactory, then everyone else please send in your donations :)!
I've received Torre's and one more from someone else containing 25 euros.

This week I'll be working on standard gethit, knockout (he already has falling/hitting the ground) and Shocked (which I think will show the person underneat the armor while flashing) and I suppose Backbroken gethits, as well as his walkcycle (of which I had already done a couple of frames).

Here's a wicked 720 hook kick, edited from that cool double kick. All it needed was 2 new frames.

Jumping Medium Kick is done, as is Standing Medium Punch. I revisted and edited his Standing Strong Kick as well, looks better now.

Used to plow through all those putty patrolers!

ps. needs only 2 more default gethits (in the gut and while crouching), and i still have to revisit his walk animation.
Other then that his basics are mostly done (oh yeah and to animate that idle, dang).

As a reference for walk and stance cycles?  I didn't say use him directly, just to pull possible animation ideas from.  I mean, the original stance is based off Cpt. Commando.

Sorry if it seems like I snapped.

Oh, and there are tons more Ryu, Ken and Gouki (Akuma) clones out there that greatly overshadow Vega (M.Bison) clones :P

Well as is, the Rangers will be like at least 60% Captain Commando anyway, it just seemed very fitting to me.
Luckily there aren't any (afaik) multitude of Capt.Com clones for Mugen.
I'll definitely pull some cool poses from here and there, even Dictator perhaps!

I'll also post at least one animation where I converted him to Black or Red Ranger (which is just a new helmet and a recolor, at least for the animations that'll be reused) just so you guys can see one of the other Rangers in motion. Green Ranger needs a bit more work with the added braces and ofcourse his shield which'll be a real chore. Once more, I don't think the females'll look as good as a headswap, I'd rather redraw their bodies entirely if it came to that, so they're slender, a bit smaller and well, more feminine.

hey, ive been thinking about asking this for some time now but ive felt like even asking might have come off the wrong way but i figured why the hell not-
does anyone here need any art done for them at all? ive no talent or experience with coding/programing stuff (which i imagine is the only thing anyone WOULD want help with) but on the real, ive been doing art designs, renders, ect all my life and i was doing it for a living before i joined the navy
i sincerely mean no disrespect by my asking, im not asking for any money, and i dearly hope im not stepping on anyones toes or anything im only asking if it might help in ANY WAY

I'll start off by saying that IDK if you are offering your services for the Blue Ranger project or not, but if you aren't....

You can start by making your own thread in the Graphics section to showcase your art work, because going and stating it like that in a thread that isn't yours is kinda rude tbh.

Don't take it the wrong way, I'm just suggesting a better alternative for you.

The red ranger movie helmet is much bigger than original series and the others rangers, just search some pictures on google from the movie.
That´s  a pitty that you will not make the other rangers.
The picture of all rangers is the best thing in 2d that I never saw about any power rangers.
I really hope that some day red and black appear in mugen, after green, white  and girls.
OMG will be incredible with this draws and standard!

If you decide to get money for the full ranger team once you'll be done with the Blue Ranger, I'll be able to send something (by something I mean money).
And I hope someone will code them in Infinite Style. xD

Post by: Balthazar on March 24, 2016, 01:23:31 pm
Who knows, with support, motivation and proper funding, a lot is possible ;)
As for the coding, well as usual I'd like to stick around and be very much involved, I would code him myself if I had the time and knowledge.
Not sure if I'd like O Ilu to pick up again, might be better to start fresh.
I don't want to code him into any specific style, might want to take him into a fresh direction, a custom style.
New/custom effects, sound effects, etc. All I know is that it'll be a 6 button character!

As for the Red Ranger helmet, well that's just 1 frame, don't worry about it, I've since tweaked his helmet in later sprites.

Working on 1 more frame to finish up the first of Billy's Special Moves (even though I said I wouldn't quite work on those yet!).

Well let's not get carried away guys, that only sets up for possibly disappointment.
As for Special Moves, well, here's one! Billy possibly could be a charge char,
sounds fitting to me. And yes these would be placeholder effects.

Tricera Crash - b(hold), f+P, (on impact) SP, SP (tentive name and command)

Balthazar,

About supers, some suggestions:

.The same hypers that billy have in the snes games and sega games (movie version and normal snes version)
.About weapons: the same combos/ attacks that he use ins the snes and sega games
For exemple: spin the spear
Of couse, I not suggest to you just make the snes hypers, is just a idea to put these classic hypers.

You will put the triceratops coin in the billy chest like the movie?

Hmm, I was thinking that charge would better suit Zack/Black Ranger, but that's just my opinion.  Either way, I like this special move so far and the effects look nice as well, just need to be flashier in the final version XP

The sprite is really too small in scale to accomodate that, there's no room for that level of detail. So, no.
Supers will most likely be original. He'll surely have the spear on one of them.

Well as for the charge char was just a thought but I thought Billy is the wizkid and charge chars tend to be more technical, makes sense? I don't want to make it too flashy, we should focus on mechanics first. And not even that! First I'd like to finish these sprites.
I'm also working on a wicked Tatsumaki, even though I don't think it'll end up in Billy's moveset (more likely Jason or Tommy's if they get made).

Yeah man now imagine if it was actually 500 or a more professionally 5K!
As for voices, well voice rips from the show always sound very amateurish to me, so that's a no-no.
I think we'll be able to grab a voice actor from somewhere like we did for Z2's. I mean, if we got to that point!

but I couldn't resist making it.

Random idea but now with MMPR-FE conversions finally being made, Blue Ranger could have a special intro with Zord characters (and to an extent Gundam mechs) where he starts off very small, but then....something something happens, causing him to grow into "normal" size and begins to fight.

Thanks guys, this means a lot :)
Thanks a lot Jango, I got it ;)
Diepod shiiieett yeah that's looking nice, thanks! Though I think I'm sticking to my original idea of having the weapons only show up in Supers, so it would work as a great multi-hitting anti-air a'la Shinryuken. Definitely gonna make use of that. And hey I was in fact thinking of you when it came to possible custom fx! And here you've proven again you're the current king of pixelated (among other things) lighting effects!

Yes that Tricera Crash would also work when nixxing the uppercut and having the punch prior to that knock 'em down hard like a clothesline, turning it into the Topple you described.
I've got a down, up charge move in mind for Billy already, a real classic Sentai/Rangers attack (well, two of them combined). BUT I should get back to wrapping up his basics (mainly that walkcycle, just the second half of the legs really as I intend to reuse the upper body movement I've already got for the first half I already completed) and gethits (just the in-gut and while crouching gethits if I don't count MB and Curse and whatnot) first!

Balthazar, Billy have no problema voice because is one actor.

But, the movie was made to introduce the third season.
In the middle of second season the original actors changed because payment questions and contract problems...
Because of this, Jason, zack, trini was changed.

The movie was made to put the original actors, but because the problem from second season other actors appears like Rocky, Adam, Aisha.
In my opinion, Adam is very good, but Zack too and Zack are the original Black Ranger.
The same could be happen with tommy form exemple, he is a good green/white ranger. But if other good actor appear in his place, what voice  deserve appear your character? I Think is tommy voice because he is the original.
The same I Think that when you will make the red and black, please, put the original voices. Jason and Zack.
And, of course, if you want, can put the two actors voices patch (Jason and Rock) but this is so hard...

That cycle tornado kick is good man. The Power Rangers was always a show about teamwork. When they are morphed you see them using similiar punchs and kicks moves. They can use it all evenly. Zack knows how to dance. What makes him do the tornado kick? The movement? His dance and hype moves as a Character? Yes, I'm sure he can do something like that aswell. The Red and Green/White Ranger can do it too. So why not The Blue Ranger? The cycle tornado kick fits all of The Power Rangers very well.

Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (new hope with crowdfunding!)
Post by: Balthazar on March 26, 2016, 10:15:14 am
I've mentioned in the beginning of the thread that his custome/outfit is a bit of a hybrid between the classic spandex and the movie armor. Hence he lacks the diamond on his back and the coin on his chest. Also the helmet is based off the classic one even though the difference in sprite-form isn't noticable afaik.

Diepod, as for classic moves I mentioned, I was referring to attacks used in the show, not from any video game in particular ;)
The ones I ment were the classic flying dropkick (sometimes coming out of a frontflip) and the flying double superman punch!
I did catch the reference to that crowd-clearing Tornado Kick from the Genesis game in your animation!

Oh yeah, I forgot >_<
And yeah, the helmet is different, since the movie form, as you had said before, had rounded edges on the visor and the show version had sharper edges and silver lining around the visor.  The show helmets, IMO, look much better than the movie helmets.

Leaving out the Somersault Kick for now, I can always make it later
(maybe Diepod wants to make those rough frames a bit less-rough first),
and it also works as a stand-alone move. For now this is the Genesis Revolver
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_billy/Billy_Genesis-Revolver.gif)
(it's revolving kick based off the one in the MMPR The Movie Sega Genesis game!
You can see it about halfway in the sprite sheet that Diepod posted a few posts back):

I might have to revisit that foot he lands on first,
his diamond shapes are a bit jumpy on those frames.

Ofcourse many thanks to Diepod
for the rough animation frames.
This could be his down-up charge special move.
I'm most likely still going to make the other one I had in mind.
It won't hurt to make a pool of animations that could be devided up between the Rangers, if it gets to that point.

I'm up for help if you need some for the stance :)
I certainly won't stop you!

ps. his mid/overhead get-hit is done too, leaving only the crouching get-hit (in terms of bare essentials)

All of the sprites are showing up weird and I'm not sure what to do:

Our buddy JMorph is very capable of coding in a style set apart from POTS's template (actually this might be his first real endeavor). We ARE going for something new and fresh here. With him being so high-regarded, having crossed paths before AND being a Sentai fan, I couldn't have wished for someone better to put the coding in Billy!
2016 is the year of Power Rangers in Mugen.  First the Zords, now Bimmy to start the floodgates of Sentai edits from the Japanese Mugen community.
I never really ever get wind of anything the Japanese Mugen community does. As long as the project's assets are treated with respect I'd have no beef.

Again, this will NOT be done in POTS style, you're drawing your own conclusions here. Open your mind for something new!

Seanaltly's characters got turned into different versions (Mr.X to Nemesis, Solid into Liquid) by few Japanese authors.  Don't be surprised if someone from that community decides to do a head/palette swap with Blue Ranger and say, going for the rest of the Rangers and even anyone else from the Sentai-verse.

Coding-wise might not be like JMan's, but variety is very welcoming (although beta-states are inevitable).

I'm not sure I qualify as a sentai fan because I haven't seen a Power Rangers show in over a decade BUUUUUUUUUUUUUT I have been reading these very funny/insightful recaps of the original Power Rangers series on Comics Alliance (http://comicsalliance.com/tags/ranger-station/), and also I have read the first issue of the brand new ongoing MMPR comic (https://www.comixology.com/Mighty-Morphin-Power-Rangers-1/digital-comic/344515) and plan to continue reading because it was a good one, so that should balance things out maybe?

Post by: Balthazar on April 24, 2016, 11:23:20 am
Yeah you can be sure of that!
Currently, most of his basic movements are in, we're still trying to tweak them so they feel fresh and unique. Gethits are in too, just missing Dizzy and Collapse. Oh and the human frame for the Shock gethit if I still wanna do that. Placing in attack animations has also been started on!
These aren't all his standing attacks (still missing st.Light Kick and st.Strong Punch) but I figured I would show some new things.
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_billy/Billy_attacks_stand.gif)
Billy probably won't get all of these, mostly the last 4 strong kicks are more Jason/Zach-esque. The flip kick might appear as a part of a Super, we'll see. Oh and that medium side kick turned out to be angled way too high! I'm redrawing the kick so he kicks more horizontally. I could salvage the standing leg though! The second side kick is a f+MK. I'm having some doubts about the quality of that standing spin kick though,  seems a bit wobbly,  right?

Possibly! I'll only need to sprite that 2nd punch to achieve that.

HHMM I don't know, that's something we'll have to test/discuss once more attacks have been added to the char. Seems kinda out there! I think we're going for something a bit more old school, grounded, basic. Ofc. cool combos should still be a norm.
For that Genesis Chain I think it needs the straight punch to look a bit better. I was going to sprite that anyway ;)

I'm really happy I got that awesome Genesis Revolver roughed/sketched by Diepod. But the move I was actually referring to when I said I planned to combine two classic Super Sentai moves, was this (still a rough animation with infinished frames):
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_billy/Billy_DropsWip.gif)
This combines both the flying dropkick and the flying double superman punch!

I think it'll work kinda like Dictator's Head Press, but aiming for p2's face rather then the top of their head. Should be fun!

While I'm fully aware of the flying drop kick and double punch, I didn't imagine using them as anti-air. Figured one of the rangers would git them as a body projectile as opposed to a tatsu.

IT IS NOW TIME FOR THE GREAT AND ALL-POWERFUL JMORPHMAN TO DEMAND AND SOLICIT THE OPINIONS OF THE FORUM AT LARGE
(http://i.imgur.com/MspAOlB.png)
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_billy/Billy_RiderKick.gif)
So, this the Rider Kick: it's executed when dashing forward (so you're already covering a bunch of ground before the move starts), and the kick itself covers huuuge range (nearly full screen!). It also has a pretty fast startup; it seems kinda overly powerful for a normal move? Seems like it'd be absurdly easy to throw it out to punish anything the opponent does.

I've been tweaking things here and there to try and keep the move from being too overly powerful but I'm finding it difficult to do that while making the animation and movement look as smooth as that gif. And now I'm just constantly questioning myself about what the right approach to this move should be! Like, maybe there should be a lot more startup (but wouldn't that make the animation look bad?) Or maybe it should have pretty bad hitboxes so it could be easily punished, and have pretty terrible frame disadvantage on block?

so give me some ideas, people!

(FX and sounds are an odd mishmash of things right now, nothing is final. So no comments about why he has Rolento's voice, etc.)

So, I'm experimenting with the dropkick special. I had Billy do it twice in that webm, once out of the corner and once in the corner, because I have a TargetBind in there to make Billy stick to P2's head cuz it looks cool. But I wanted some thoughts on how it looked in the corner because there's a somewhat noticeable shift in Billy's position when the move connects.

you have 20 seconds to comply

Again to me, Billy's 'jump' into the dropkick frame binded to p2's face isn't looking bad or overly noticable to me. Move is looking dope! The superman punch follow-up should knock down p2 though imo.

Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger - Jmorphman coding!
Post by: Balthazar on June 25, 2016, 08:03:10 pm
I think what we're going for is about 50 shades of blue.

Super serious.
As for now he only has references to his palettes from previous games, plus the EVIL COPY RANGER one (black boots n' gloves).

And could you edit your post to remove that 50 Shades image please? It's an eyesore.

His avi is from Robot Detective K, a pretty old but good Toku show. It's what Q is based on!

Super serious.

I tried one out myself, but I took some liberties and influence from Kyoryuger for Billy's outfit rather than having a putty

It's from the screenpack I made (http://network.mugenguild.com/jmorphman/MAFJ.html), which is a weird amalgamation of other screenpacks, all crudely stitched together.

That's a pretty cool intro, though I'd look a bit better if Billy pulled his morpher from somewhere (belt? pocket?).
Well, it's not exactly the same thing, and I also might be misremembering this, but I think there's gonna be a cut-in of this:

Are you serious? Shit you need to get on YouTube and watch some mighty morphin, the blue rangers like
The Donatello from tmnt. He's a geek and whoops putty patrol ass.

Without a question this is the best blue ranger for mugen, probably the only original sprited ranger not a sprite rip.

You mean that old one from DOS era by Kokuryu ? Well he was one of my facvourites back in the day and Dragonranger updated him to Winmugen but he didn't know how to code so he wasn't able to fix all his problems. Still it he was (is) very playable.

I once talked to Kokuryu and he said he had update for him on his HDD, he started White Ranger too, but HDD crash happened and all files were gone. After that he lost motivation and quit. Sad really, because to this day this Green Ranger is one of best PR creations in Mugen. Of course by today standards he is pretty broken, but still enjoyable.

Billy's a far better starting point, though.  He'd make an excellent base for the rest of the rangers, kind of like Ryu (street fighter), or Jin (tekken).  Besides, have you seen how fucking pumped up Billy was in Season 2 and 3.  Fucking RIPPED, and he honed his fighting skills outside of the suit, too.

And if Tommy is going to be made, IF, it'd be cooler for him to be the Green Ranger, not White.  Nothing against white ranger, just a preference is all.  Plus the green ranger in the '95 movie mockup armor looks awesome.

IF you read the messages of this tópic  about Billy you could motivation
Like this message that you say in the last 11 months Ago that: alternate Billy and Piccolo. Piccolo sprites and coding already done Nów Maybe Tien sprites almost done.
The good point about Billy is that you aré making the bases tô the others Rangers. Whith this You Will able  make them fast. IF you will make for exemple Jason the red ranger I Will help with donation.

I can't watch a video and sprite at the same time!

Anyway, the last few days I slowly but steadily worked on this, it was supposed to be his standing Strong Punch but it came out looking kinda...not that strong. But hey at least I'm doing something!
Just to recap, he still just needs (as far as essentials go) his standing Strong Punch and all 6 crouching attacks. Sprite-wise, that is.

You know what, actually, I'm gonna quit this project now! Watching the stream (the first time I've seen any episodes of Power Rangers since I was a kid!) made me realize this is a dumb show for babies! How do you like that?!?! ARE YOU MOTIVATED YET?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

ok but on a more serious note, I am genuinely shocked at how inept so many aspects of the production are; the show really doesn't hold up, at all, even being when generous to what it is: a hastily cobbled together show designed for small children. I thought I would be better prepared for this, reading Comics Alliance's recaps (http://comicsalliance.com/tags/ranger-station/), but I feel like the only thing it's got going for it (at least in the early going) is pure kitsch value. At the very least, it has kitsch in spades!

Very nice!
You are one of the best spriters that I Saw, and  so fast. looks like that Billy sprites almost done. Maybe IF you Focus Just in on him, you can finish in 2 months or less. Because the most hard work you already done.
And Just for remmeber, IF you Will make the red ranger, I'm Will make a good donation for It.
IF Billy done, the red ranger Will be more fast because of the same base.

The show is extremely dated and badly done, but you know something?  I don't care XD I mean, I enjoy b movies all the time, why not a show that follows in the footsteps of the old Godzilla films with rubber suits and exaggerated fighting?

And the chop attack, it looks more like a close M.p. to me.

Maybe try an axe handle or maybe a slightly exaggerated straight?  Or maybe a punch where he jabs twice?

This is the concept for his first Super, the Laser Breaker. The latter part with the blaster shooting I intend to have like a button-mash sequence, a'la Shinryuken. Like Majin Vegeta's Saiyan Pride Beatdown, an icon might show up on screen indicating the button tapping. Sounds/looks cool?
I'm also working on the crouch attacks, 3/6 done.

Those impacts are absolutely sexy, but with the laser shots: maybe have the arm stiff, but kickback causes the torso to recoil slightly.  Never was a fan of gunshot kickback making the arm bend up.  And I agree as well, make it a button masher with visual icon.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the rubber suits and crazy fight scenes and all that jazz, but the overall package is just lacking; they just hadn't quite figured out how to blend the Japanese footage with their newly shot material. After a few years in, that area of production stops hobbling the show, and things are much improved for it. And while there are plenty of real bad seasons after those early, awkward years, it's hard to argue against the fact that they're vastly better at most aspects of constructing an episode of television, even if some of those seasons are ultimately way way worse than Mighty Morphin'!

Well, yeah, the budget for MM was very small, the actors, cast, crew, and Saban were in the baby stages of the series (while being "babies" to the industry themselves), but the show, as a whole, picked up speed and did better with matching up the American footage and the Japanese footage over the years.  To think this show is almost as old as I am, and it better do something downright cool for it's 25th anniversary next year.

Speaking of worse seasons . . . I think Alien Rangers and Turbo were the weakest during Zordon's era for the series, but I kind of lost interest in the show after Zordon sacrificed himself, so I'm not entirely sure which other seasons, in my opinion, were worse.  I enjoyed LSR and SPD, though ^..^

operation overdrive actually isn't that bad. the Disney ones were actually some of the better ones since the budget was increased and they took more liberties with the sentai footage, especially in rpm, In fact rpm is one of the few seasons where I prefer that to the source material, they completely changed the tone of the show with the footage they used and that's impressive in itself.

Speaking of cool, Diepod, we're most likely going to add this Genesis Revolver you animated as a special move after all!
And for a Super version, we might combine it with the lance throw you also mocked-up (kicks up, lands, throws the lance up towards launched enemy).

Genesis Revolver will probably stay as a super only, if I have anything to say about it (and it's not like Balth codes :twisted:).

Speaking of worse seasons . . . I think Alien Rangers and Turbo were the weakest during Zordon's era for the series, but I kind of lost interest in the show after Zordon sacrificed himself, so I'm not entirely sure which other seasons, in my opinion, were worse.  I enjoyed LSR and SPD, though ^..^
The Alien Rangers are terrible: the group and the miniseries. Just awful. The characters themselves are a whole bunch of nothing, with only their annoying voices with some genuinely terrible and lazy alien forehead makeup design (https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/powerrangers/images/c/c2/Tideus.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080818165009) to define them, and the show itself is taken up mostly by some not especially good child actors playing kid versions of the (human) Rangers going on some very sketchy quests to restore their proper ages, punctuated by ocasional fight scenes featuring the Alien Rangers.

Also, the explanation for Yellow Ranger Aisha's departure and replacement by Tanya is simultaneously one of the most insane and incredibly lazy plot developments I've ever seen in any piece of fiction.

On the other hand, it did produce this clip, so it wasn't entirely a waste! (https://clips.twitch.tv/NeighborlyEsteemedFriseePeanutButterJellyTime)

operation overdrive actually isn't that bad. the Disney ones were actually some of the better ones since the budget was increased and they took more liberties with the sentai footage, especially in rpm, In fact rpm is one of the few seasons where I prefer that to the source material, they completely changed the tone of the show with the footage they used and that's impressive in itself.
Operation Overdrive has one of the single worst opening themes I've ever heard to any TV show: it's so, so, so bad that I'm having trouble buying the argument that the show isn't as bad as everyone says it is!

But yeah, RPM was rad. In fact, it kinda feels unfair to compare it to any of the other shows because it's simply working on a completely higher level in every single aspect of production. Like comparing Batman: The Animated Series to the 1992 X-Men animated series, or something.

All basics done! This may very well mean ALL his moves are sprited, as we'll be using moves that were previously held off, perhaps to be used in future Rangers (red, black, green, etc) but that's not going to happen anymore. JMorphman will be resuming coding. Hope we can still deliver a great character!

And then start pressuring Balthazar, every day, every hour, to make the rest of the Rangers. Until he finally can't resist, and he abandons his dumb DBZ stuff to work on something really important.

That will be our secret plan to get the rest of the Rangers sprited. :twisted:

I seem to recall that Jason David Frank (Tommy) was also one of the main instigators of that stuff. It's really fucking gross and depressing.

That looks cool. what's the commands for it?
Right now it's a F, D, DF + k, but since the rest of his moveset is charge motions, that change. Maybe.

Also we don't have a name for this move, but then again, we don't have names for a lot of the others! :gonkgoi:

Also, im liking that combo to flip kick finish.

Also have Billy kick Tommy's ass. I want to see this.

I think charge based attacks suit Billy best, and it would seem so does JMM and Balthazar.  He feels like the "Guile" out of the rangers anyway.

If anyone were to be the shotoclone base character, it'd be Jason/Rocky and/or Tommy, specifically Green.

Makes sense, Good point.
But Billy shouldn't be charged, it would just be,  :dealwithit:   <---- boring as this guy.
 
Tommy should be the charged one. Here's why.

Tommy makes a lot more sense to be the Akuma to Jason's Ryu. Not really seeing the logic for him to be a charge character.

Post by: The Sudden Rarity on July 03, 2018, 02:05:51 am
Yeah, Akuma/Gouki is a good match for Tommy(White).  If it's Tommy(Green), though, I see him more as a Ken, a playful rival type who trains alongside Jason.

Zach/Adam would be a grappler/half circle based character, or possibly like Robert Garcia.  Kim and Trini/Aisha, maybe like Chun-li or like King, since they're more acrobatic and kicking types.

Mmm, not quite.

The basic idea for the Rangers is as follows:

Of course, right now, we're just focusing on the Blue Ranger; we're specifically trying to avoid holding off any ideas or moves for potential future Rangers. So I don't want to get anyone's hopes up or anything; it just seems foolhardy at this point to be coming up with any in-depth plans for the other Rangers.

Hopefully, however, we'll get around to them!

I don't get the hate this guy's throwing at charge characters.  They're good for surprising opponents and catching them off guard.

"Oh, he's backing off?  I'll close in on him and- " *gets Sonic Boom'd in the face*
"Oh, he's turtling?  How about a nice OTG-" *gets somersaulted into the air*

Also, variety never hurts.  Too many quarter circle based characters as it is.

Billy like a charge character is a good point.
I agree with you Jmorphman.

In My opinion we have amazing charge characters  with amazing gameplay, like Guile, Balrog And others.
Billy ia inteligent And not good fighter like Jason ir Tommy. Make him a charge character os a good strategy and this allow more surprise attacks.

Hope Someday Balthazar make the others, especially Jason the red ranger.

Would giving Billy more defensive options like counter stances or something break his gameplay? Since his bit was science maybe he could have options like strider, not that I know how that would work.

Also Urien’s non-projectile moves are change and he’s the baddest man in the universe.

We're going for a fairly simple and kinda retro style of gameplay, so I'm not sure if different stances or options would be a good fit. We were talking about having an invention or two of Billy's pop up somewhere, but we never got around to nailing anything down, and now we've basically got the move set figured out. So I dunno, we've still some of time to think about it!

new video, showing off an anti-air(ish) move, and also, towards the end, a tweaked version of that nameless new autocombo move, that makes it all flow better. (http://network.mugenguild.com/jmorphman/images/wipthread/ComeHereBillytarn3.mp4)

The shooting angle might be too steep, perhaps? It's one of the reasons I added that initial, non-projectile hit, but even with that, the move might be hard to use because it's just too hard to hit people? It's something we'll mull over for now.

nah, you have 2 more buttons to choose from, for variants.
Auto combo?  Isnt that a link chain?

About the Ex-charged-Laser Pistol; i think he should shoot 2 times quick, or have the first pistol shoot straight forward (wall Pop) and 2nd hit diagonal for the finish. Can have him follow up after that,  :rifle:

This is the concept for his first Super, the Laser Breaker. The latter part with the blaster shooting I intend to have like a button-mash sequence, a'la Shinryuken. Like Majin Vegeta's Saiyan Pride Beatdown, an icon might show up on screen indicating the button tapping. Sounds/looks cool?
I'm also working on the crouch attacks, 3/6 done.

This is a good option How to use the pistol (Will be good If each shot for any Button press. Exemple: If you press punch Button onde time, Will make one shot.  Two times in punch Button Will Make two shot, depends also the velocity of the player for make fast or slow shots.

This shots are a good strategy when enemy jump in Billy direction

Jmorphman wasn't going to code it in PotS style, if I recall correctly. Sure, there are some effects that could say otherwise but I think those were just placeholders for the real hitsparks and graphical effects.
Title: Re: Billy, the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger - Jmorphman coding!
Post by: Bizarro Santamorphman on October 27, 2019, 12:26:21 am
Yeah the plan was to create a new, old school-esque style that didn't have much in the way of flashy combos or effects. All the PotS style stuff shown in the videos was just because Billy is built ontop of Rolento, and none of the effects were swapped out yet.

I'll probably release all the sprites I have, because I have them organized with axis in separate files (which is easier for MUGEN development). I'm not sure how useful the beta version of the character is, but if anyone wants it for reference I can release that too, but keep in mind it is extremely far from completion! The moves that are in there are only "done" in the sense of "this is what the basic concept of this move will be", without any sort of fine-tuning.

I've been really busy this year and haven't had much time for MUGEN related stuff, so I dunno what I'll decide on when things clear up and I have more MUGEN time: I might decide to continue this character, or I might just wanna go back to doing B. B. Hood or whatever, it depends on my mood at the time.

If you plan  releasing your beta version of Billy, please do it relea I can finish  the final version of Billy in this year yet.
Your Billy base is so solid. I can Finish and release for the people.

The spritesheet is available, you could code it yourself. :P

when i said i can't code?
i just said i'll wait for the beta.

Then why would you...?

You say you want to finish but say you can't code, why would you offer it then?

There was some miscommunication there. His question towards AlexSin was more like, "When did I ever said I won't code it?"

Either way... I'm actually kinda fond of the idea of a early Ranger release, if that would make it easier for people willing to develop their own versions from it;

Yeah the plan was to create a new, old school-esque style that didn't have much in the way of flashy combos or effects. All the PotS style stuff shown in the videos was just because Billy is built ontop of Rolento, and none of the effects were swapped out yet.

I'll probably release all the sprites I have, because I have them organized with axis in separate files (which is easier for MUGEN development). I'm not sure how useful the beta version of the character is, but if anyone wants it for reference I can release that too, but keep in mind it is extremely far from completion! The moves that are in there are only "done" in the sense of "this is what the basic concept of this move will be", without any sort of fine-tuning.

I've been really busy this year and haven't had much time for MUGEN related stuff, so I dunno what I'll decide on when things clear up and I have more MUGEN time: I might decide to continue this character, or I might just wanna go back to doing B. B. Hood or whatever, it depends on my mood at the time.





Thanks for allowing we to play your beta Billy Jmorphman, he has a very good base. I believe the people here will do a great job with him when you make it available.
