Oh, I want a diagram. I fucking love diagrams.
And one more decent Pokémon has risen People like my Rotom character - it took nearly a whole year.People like your Blaziken character - it took 7½ months.I see a connection here that the 30-minutes-to-make characters don't have.EDIT: It disappears through its animations for some reason.
When I open Blaziken in Fighter Factory, the sprite file doesn't appear to contain any sprites, yet in-game, there's at least one.I'll try the 7z download when I can.
Are you using FF Classic or FF Ultimate? If you are, it's because those can't read SFFv2, while FF 3.0 can. I'm not at my usual comp so I can't tell if it's using SFFv1 or SFFv2, but considering this is in the 1.0 releases, my gut feeling is it's the latter.
It's a SSFv2FF3 by default saves all sprites as .SSF regardless of whether they're SSF1 or 2. Mugen doesn't appear care either way, look at KFM720.
