Post by: dxwho on May 10, 2018, 05:07:28 pm
None of the memory addresses N. sent me disable the background elements in any way. I can turn off the lifebars, timer, and character shadows. I can also make  the background all blue (on Shadow King's stage by scaling the Coca Cola sign up to a ridiculous size) which makes ripping the chars super easy.
 I actually created those stages by moving both chars to the far left for a screenshot then moving them far fight for another screenshot. I then franken-sprited them together the best I could... ::)

dxwho... now you're ripping 3DO sprites, maybe you can take this opportunity, and rip sprites from the Demolition Man game.
this game has some fighting gameplay, see:
(look in 6m6s)



just a idea
in any case, keep up the good work XD

Hey dxwho, thanks for the update but are there some missing asounds or is it just me?
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on May 13, 2018, 03:26:47 am
Each Character should have four 'speech' files. I also included their punch, kick, and jump sounds and their special move sounds (I'm sure they're all pretty much identical for every character....a bunch of badly sampled sounds). The only sounds I didn't bother to get were the get-hit sounds and any wins sounds. Honestly, they're all very poor quality so I didn't bother.....   
I'm gonna finish up with 'Shadow King' and call it 'done' with this game.
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: Prisoner 3471 on May 13, 2018, 04:18:19 am
Oh, now I get it. Well those sounds don't even matter. By the way, good luck ripping Shadow King,
EDIT: I noticed that carlos doesn't have  punch, kick, and jump sounds...

Post by: Prisoner 3471 on May 14, 2018, 02:16:18 am
Hey dxwho, I noticed something. In the Riggs Sounds Files, in the intro and end sounds, the "Go to hell.wav" Sounds like a full fight instead of the only quote "Go to hell". I don't know if it's normal...
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on May 14, 2018, 02:34:33 am
Ok, I've fixed the sound file and re-uploaded the pack (see first post for link).

John Spartan 1996 (Demolition Man 3do) updated. I went and re-ripped all his sprites as there were 'issues' with some of them. I also have the correct axis for most of them. Big thanks to N. for finding the time to create an Artmoney table for me so I could rip these sprites (turns out it works in 4do and Freedo). Also thanks to Adriano for sending me the 'file' I needed! The link to the new download is in the first post.

Post by: dxwho on May 20, 2018, 12:07:08 am
That sure looks like a strange game (didn't even know it existed). Sorry, I don't have any methods to rip those game sprites. I mostly stick to old games on old emulators.............

Well, Next I'm planning to rip all the characters from "Unlimited Warriors" which is an old dos fighting game.
(https://i.imgur.com/dtm6Jbm.png)
After that I'll rip the Jackie Chan game (the one without all the wacky palettes).

dxwho already ripped cat fight ... but I do not know if it's complete

another game that should be easy to rip ... wwf in your house to sega saturn
the yabause emulator has buttons to disable the layers, leaving only the black background.
It should be simple to change the color

Post by: JairMB on June 30, 2018, 11:43:37 pm
I see the Jackie Chan game being ripped now, really cool.
There are 2 versions of this arcade. What's the difference?
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on July 01, 2018, 12:33:00 am

The two games are "The Kung Fu Master" and "Fist of Fire."

From Wikipedia:
"Fist of Fire adds a desperation move system, an improved combo system with a special combo counter above the lifebars that records the highest number of combos during a match, and an "escaping" feature where players can struggle out of combos or stand up as fast as possible by rapidly moving the control stick and tapping the buttons simultaneously. Fists of Fire also makes all three versions of Jackie Chan into playable characters expanding the roster up to nine playable characters, and makes adjustment to the character balance by strengthening and weakening the statistics of certain playable characters from the first game, while adding and removing a few moves to some of them. The palettes of Lau, Yeung and Thorston were heavily modified as well. The opening intro is a modified version of the first game's intro, but the rest of the game's graphics are not that different."

I'm working on Kim-Maree sprites now. She should be done soon...............

I haven't had any luck with "Bikini Karate Babes" but have access to all the "Warriors of Elysia" sprites thanks to N. (gonna take a looong time to rip though as there are so many sprites).  ;D
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: Baligon on July 06, 2019, 06:38:44 am
That's fine i can use the Warriors of Elysia sprites in place of Bikini Karate Babes and thank you i really do appreciate the reply. I haven't had any luck myself finding sprites from either of those games, i actually was trying to find a way to download the games so i could rip the sprites myself but most of the files were broken or missing.
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on July 06, 2019, 09:10:41 pm
Here is a rar file containing all of Vesta's finished standing sprites in .pcx format (both reg size/full color and rescaled/256 color).
https://www.sendspace.com/file/x8faqg
More Examples:
The pic with the black background is the unmodified sprite (not very usable). The ones with the pink background is the result after a few clicks in Paint Shop Pro 7 (ready for MUGEN).

Unmodified:

Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: Baligon on July 07, 2019, 11:29:25 pm
Yes if i have any luck finding the game i will help and post what sprites i rip here, you will probably have better luck though since i cant really find anything on both of those games for some reason, honestly i'm surprised you actually found a way to rip those sprites just because its almost like those games don't exist.
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on July 08, 2019, 12:54:49 am
You don't actually need the game. I have all the sprites of each character ripped from the games "bik" video files. The sprites just need some modifications (to remove that "halo" which surrounds the sprites) which I can show you how to do.
Let me know who you want to rip first. Then I'll send you half the sprites via PM (with the instructions on how to "fix" them) and I'll take care of the other half. Since each character has a few thousand sprites it shouldn't take too long.........     ::)

Nice! Check your Personal Messages for the link to half of her sprites and a video tutorial to remove the halo.
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: Baligon on July 08, 2019, 05:55:00 am
Okay so i read the instructions and watched the video and it seems pretty simple, the only thing is my internet has been screwing up lately so i have been getting disconnected and then re connected then disconnected again so i might not be able to get back on for the other sprites until it gets fixed but if you can could you send me the links for all the characters so i can download them all at once while i still have internet and then ill just start working on them offline one at a time. Its probably going to to take a while like you said but i can get it done, oh and once i'm finished with them all should i send them to you through message or post them here?
Title: Re: Dxwho Sprite Packs Part 2
Post by: dxwho on July 08, 2019, 06:31:32 am
You should change your internet provider  :neutral:  :yuno: Anyway, lets stick to the original game plan and concentrate on one character at a time. When we are finished with our halves then we can just upload the finished sprites here (you need to have ten posts to be able to send me a personal message anyway). If one person finishes first, he can help the other finish if he wants. Once we've finished one character sprite set and are happy with it, then we can start a new one. At least if I don't hear from you, I'll know why......
Thanks again for teaming up with me for this big project!

How did you finish so fast? Better upload what you've done so I can take a look at it. I thought it would take you months to finish..... :yikes:

Oh no i didn't finish them that fast lol, i was just saying the sprites from Aphrodite you sent me look like they are already finished due to none of them having that greenish halo around them, that's why i asked for the second half, but if there is still something that needs to be done to them just let me know because i did notice a very thin outline but you can barley see it, should i try to get rid of that or just the green halos? p.s sorry for the confusion.

Yeah. I notice that if you open the sprites in Paint Shop Pro 9 that the halo is not shown (The black background is now 'transparent' and the sprite has semi transparent pixels around the edge). In Paint Shop Pro 7 the background is black and there's that thick halo around the sprite (alpha channel transparency - something or other). The Paint Shop Pro 7 process in the video gives the sprites a nice black outline whereas something similar steps in Paint Shop Pro 9 would give the sprites an annoying white outline. Therefore, I chose the black outline sprites.

It doesn't matter what paint program is used  as long as the sprites come as seen with Vesta on page 3 (all transparencies removed, thin black outline, and pink background color).  They aren't 100% but I'm happy with the look of those sprites (and can't do any better  :P).

Here is my contribution for the day:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/5e6aj1
This rar contains all 54 of Aphrodite's finished standing kick#1(has both fullsize/full color rips and resized/256 color rips).
I used PSP7 to get the nice (hardly noticeable) black outline around the sprite and saved them as .pcx

Well, I've been messing around with the script/batch processing that Paint Shop Pro 9 has and have found that I can quickly convert all of the thousands that Aphrodite has a short amount of time (maybe take a half hour if that)  :o
I'll start converting now and upload the results soon (we lose the black outline but save months of hard work).

Ok, all of Aphrodite's (thousands of) sprites have been cleaned (took exactly 1 hour   :sugoi:). Check your personal messages for the link.
Here are two pics of Vesta showing how now the sprites have a thin white outline instead of a thin black outline (was the best I could do):

Yeah i had found a faster way to do it as well, i packed all her sprites into sprite sheets then i removed the halo from all of them at once then i used an online sheet cutter to slice them back into individual frames, after that i had planned to use an online file converter to convert the separate frames into pcx since the sprite splitter didn't recognize that specific file but eventually i came across a minor problem of this annoying white halo around the sprites so i haven't posted any of my finished works due to that and i didn't want to post them until they were completely finished with no loose ends.

Should i use paint pro 9 to help finish the rest or should i continue finishing what i'm working on, and also newb question here but how do i post things to this website?

What I did was real easy in PSP9. I opened the sprite then merged the layers which set the transparent background to white. Then I used the color replacer tool with a threshold of 20 to change the background to pink (and lessen the thickness of the white outline). I tried a threshold of 30 and 40 but noticed on some sprites that a few sprite pixels were affected. That was it, then I saved as pcx.
Finish what your working on. I'd like to see your sprites (could be cleaner than mine?). I upload stuff to "Sendspace" (www.sendspace.com). Then copy the link they give you into a post (very easy)!Other sites have popups and virus/malware crap but sendspace never gives me any issues.
For Pictures, I use Imgur (https://imgur.com). browse to your pic, upload it, take the link then post the link!

Ok, I've fixed the issue with the transparent pixels around the border of the sprites. In Paint Shop Pro 9 you have to go to file -> export -> png optimizer. This opens up a whole lot of options concerning transparency that I've never seen before. Check out these sweet 100% perfect results:

There is no outline, just correctly colored pixels!

Expect all Aphrodite's sprites to be finished in about an hour...............

Well, the script/batch file stuff wasn't easy but I used some "trickery" to get it to work. We're cooking with gasoline now!!!!!

You can send me Tien wu next since i'm almost finished with Aphrodite its just been hard to get online and cut her sheets and convert the files which are the last two steps i have to do, and if you can paint shop pro 9 as well. By the way your new Aphrodite sprites look amazing.

Here is an update for those following the progress of the "Warriors of Elysia" work. I made a script for Paint Shop Pro 9 which fixes the "transparency issues" and in combination with the "batch process" function can fix all of a characters sprites (one folder at a time). The only downside of this is that it takes about four hours to fix the thousands of sprites. It looks like all bugs are now gone (just fixed the final bug which is that the sprites were not being put into correct numerical order when "batch renaming" them).
Here is all thirty-three of Aphrodite's standing animation (cleaned and in proper order) for those wanting to see the progress made:

Baligon, I am unable to send you any personal messages (inbox overflow?). Anyway, to answer your question, the finished sprites are saved automatically as .pcx in the FinishedSprites folder! How far have you gotten without that info???

Still a no-go on the Personal Message front....Don't understand why I can't PM you?????? ( I can get your messages though). I sent SlanDome a PM earlier so I think it's a problem on your end......
