Unknown Soldier - Marvel vs Capcom Assist helper W.I.PYou shouldn't worry so much about the sprites & try your best to make due with what you have. Make him a weapon based fighter like you seem to already be doing. Just having access to all those weapons would be really cool and you wouldn't need new sprites. Maybe only a launcher, but you could even get creative with that. That move-list posted can easily work.
I had been feeling sad because this char hasn´t fun and he´s not good enough to play, the sprites are poor and the gameplay very awkward and precarious.
i'm updating him to release a beta version, but surely there´s many things to do yet. i think in changing the moveset and gameplay to fix it more from the original game with the MVC treatment, i'm working alone and it's more delayed.
If you need some inspiration, I tried to do the same thing with a weapon based character. I didn't have any custom sprites either & just winged it reusing the same old sprites. Just give all the weapons unique properties. I can see it coming out really cool.
