OK, this question seems to slow down some PSX-only creators, so here's an answer. I don't know if it works for other PSX games, but it does for Capcom vs SNK Pro. So here goes :
How to rip CvS characters sprites ?
-> Get a PSX emulator that works with plugins (I use ePSXe)
-> get this video plugin : Kazzuya's OpenGL GPU 0.5
-> In the video plugin configuration, just uncheck the "use bilinear filtering" option.
So what now ? Hey guess what, that's all.
(these shots were resized, so they're awfully blurred, just don't care, it's normal)
As you see, that version of that plugin is so buggy that the BG is... removed. Jackpot.
Here, it was supposed to be the "ruins" stage, purple one that looks like the Thailand BG in the evening or something like that : its main color, main tone, was globally purple. Now you just have a complete purple BG. Go on and take a dark stage (like the one that has some junkyard on the left in the back, and a wall on the right) and you'll get an all-black BG.
Yes, the char on the left has some weird lines stripping his sprites. With P1, just jump over P2, and P2 will be on the left, and be the one with those lines.
And you can get you sparks easily too (except when sparks and character overlap, sadly).
Oh, and it seems you'll have trouble using the "save state-load state" feature in ePSXe, as it just crashes when you try to load a saved state. Also, sometime an error shows up about video or something (says something like "click OK to continue, cancel to prevent these error messages from displaying") : don't care, click on "cancel" to make these error boxes not be displayed anymore (well, you're quite aware that it doesn't work properly, since it removes the BG...).
As for getting * all * the frames, take anything that records what happens on your screen and take each frame of the video.
Thank the most buggy plugin
Have fun and create more CvS chars.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
