yeah, you want fighter factory, MCM (mugen character maker) isn't exactly 'finished'. its perfectly useable, its just that fighter factory is better for newbies like you and me.
holy crap, i'm back and stuff... if anyone cares.

Oh, that would have been Mugen Character Maker by sés ( currently offline).

IIRC, the ACT tab is for defining the color palette. If that's the case, "ACT" stands for Adobe Color Table, a format used by Photoshop and other programs to save color palettes.

Basically, the color of your sprites is governed by a color palette of up to 255 colors (hopefully a single global palette per character for better color management etc). Usually (KOF, SF3 and others do this), each individual sprite has up to 15 colors plus transparency. Colors that are just a color index that refers to the palette.

Having colors organized in a palette will help you with things like palette swaps, effects, etc.

I'm currently using Graphics Gale for animating my sprites from scratch.
Its a good program, but the setting transparency so I can see the last frame I'm animating from is a lil weak.

Anyone recommend a good program for drawing with layers?

Photoshop is good but lacks pens, paint, etc.

I can't seem to use MCM at all, hence why I prefer FF and MEE.

Though Fighter Factory acts weird once in a while, so it's not the most reliable.
