"We previously reported that a skeleton crew will remain behind to complete work on The Walking Dead Final Season. That information was inaccurate. Sources who wish to remain anonymous explained that there is a skeleton crew at Telltale, but they will be working on the Minecraft Story Mode project for Netflix. In fact, The Walking Dead team was also laid off today and The Walking Dead Final Season will not be completed."

Ahh, this sucks.

Nero Bride is the rated up 5-star unit and she's really good. Right now if you're going to reroll I suggest getting a Hercules. I can't remember if you can get 5-star servants on the tutorial roll.
As for tips:
-Get Waver friends.
-There are silver and bronze servants worth keeping.
-This is a waifu game, don't sweat it if you can't beat everything easily.
-Save for Merlin, he's up at the end of the year.
-Servants that look weak now can get buffs in the future.
-With that said; burn Fionn immediately if you pull him.

That's 3am for me, I'd have basically thrown away almost 2 bars of AP by the time I wake up.

Did a 10-roll on the Caster banner and got Nursery Rhyme and Nitocris. I believe Medea Lily is the only 4-star caster I haven't pulled yet.

I can always make logos, and maybe I'll do music looping or something.
Be sure to stick around RaZors server.  Most of us are retired. So that's an available role. Lol. I enjoy shooting the shit with you buddy.
tbh I left the server around the time I was at my worst. Maybe I'll come back, tell Raz to hook me up with one of those infinite invites.

PS: will you release any of the stuff you didn't finish? i'd love to mess around with some of your design stuff
I plan to release certain designs yes. It will all come with the site redesign I think.

Hi guys, just thought I'd make a post about things goings on:

I've decided to (semi)retire from MUGEN, which may not surprise people because of the slowing of updates to my own work over the past year or so. It started off as a passionate hobby, I've always been one to try to find a way to sharpen my photoshop skills and with MUGEN I figured I could show that off at a consistent rate.

In the beginning there was so much to do for me because I wanted to learn more about the engine itself, my projects got bolder as I tinkered with the code seeing how far I could go, I enjoyed seeing people cheer me on, and I was always thrilled when I saw my lifebars in the screenshot thread, or my screenpack being used for shitty anime compilation #120 (srs guys MUGEN Tournament HD is my most popular screenpack by far), I released screenpack after screenpack, lifebar after lifebar in a 6 month period; my first two screenpacks got over 5000 views on youtube each on release, thus I felt I needed to keep a pace.

But I burned out fairly quickly, I found I could design something but never finish it. I found I hated coding certain things: The Versus screen was a problem. The Victory screen was a problem. I'd groan and roll my eyes once it came time to create system anims on lifebars. So I took a break from MUGEN while I worked IRL for a bit and came back with World Warrior X BE, even though I thought I'd return to normal I quickly found out that I still hated the things I hated and spun my wheels some more. WWXBE would be my last completed screenpack.

So yeah, I started designing a full game, or a compilation at the time. I figured I might need a bit of a change in philosophy and to adopt a "final goal" to reach for. This full game morphed over time, split into 2 projects, dropped, changed gameplay styles, spawned a team, used add004, dropped add004, adopted color schemes, dropped color schemes and after 2 years - Late-August 2018, four and a half months after I first announced Street Fighter Remix publicly - I found myself doing what I had done 100 times before; copying my Mugen 1.1 folder and starting again, opening a blank notepad and jotting down characters, who made them, who made the AI, who made any edits and which one of Tatsu's stages I'm assigning to them.

It hit me then that I really had gotten nowhere. I started the project 2 years ago, and there I was starting again. And that's it, that's my breaking point. I tried to tell myself "Oh well I'll just wait for Ikemen GO plus". But I realized that I'm just tired. It's no longer fun anymore. It's a chore. It got to the point where when people praised my work  instead of being proud I doubted them, and in my mind I took it as people taunting me or patronizing me. Comments about my work that were supposed to come off as a mere funny quip now confused me, and i'd get irrationally angered by it.

And that's why i'm hanging it up, I'm out of gas and I lost the fire a long time ago. If you guys want a decent 1.1 screenpack wait for spectra to release one lol, i'm out.

Anyway, here's a short list of people to thank, in no order of importance:

Drach1r: I can't thank you enough for that PM me sent me those years ago, I feel like you're my MUGEN dad after that PM and it really did drive me to go as far as I did.
Mugenguild staff: Thanks for the purple star, and thanks for hosting my website. It's in a shambles right now but I'll fix it up before Christmas.
Raz's discord people: I know the last few weeks on the discord I was a completely different person and maybe nigh unapproachable but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the other 18 months we hung out. I'll never forget the sweet memes or the gay shit we shared together. :crack_rock:
Walruslui, Kenshiro99 and the OPvsDBZ crew: I know I left the discord suddenly, but I felt my work was done and it was time to ride off into the sunset lol, thank you for meeting my rather concrete terms of conditions and putting up with my penchant for cherrypicking feedback. I really hope my end of the bargain holds up to the fantastic work the crew did and I can't wait to try out the game when it's released.
SOLIDUS SNAKE: Thanks for always supporting me in my ventures, sorry I never put your ninja on my suzaku stage lol.
Memo: You were always a cool dude to me, sorry I couldn't come through with the CVTW stuff, I wish you the best tho.
Vegaz: Dude your stages are all totally sweet, you were probably my biggest inspiration.
AVPBOY: Your stages are also sweet, and you were also a big inspiration.
OldGamer: I really enjoy your work. Thanks for the extra documentation on lifebars last year.
And everyone else in Mugenguild: Thanks for commenting, subscribing, criticizing and downloading my work.

Edit: I should mention I'm not leaving the guild, also I'm free for logo designs if you want one hit me up.

Yeah cool, I might give these lifebars another scan through. There's a longstanding issue I've been meaning to fix with some of the anims anyway.

Fix should be out in a couple days.

Edit: Damn I made this 2 years ago? That's kind of depressing.

Try setting your sprite and spr.p1 to 9000,2 and see if that works.

Victory screen will default to 9000,1 if you don't have anything in 9000,3. You should confirm that's what Mugen is doing through the Debug.
