Sigma is also the virus. And remember how Sigma made X purposely kill Sigma just to spread the Sigma Virus? What if Sigma, in a last ditch effort, makes Ultron kill Sigma, just to spread the Sigma Virus on Ultron and turning him into a Maverick. That way, at least it would be a draw, because Sigma is destroyed, but Sigma's "essence", the Sigma Virus, is inside Ultron, manipulating him to Sigma's advantage and essentially turning him into one of his henchmen, if not even a new Sigma body.
Ultron is a constantly evolving, super-advanced AI that has assimilated the most advanced tech and knowledge from not only the Marvel universe's Earth (whose tech is in many respects superior to Mega Man's), but also a shit ton of extremely advanced alien civilizations. I really can't imagine the Sigma virus being able to overcome the defenses of almost any of the various incarnations of Ultron. Maybe the very earliest ones, shortly after his creation?

But ultimately this comes back to what I said earlier:
I guess it's theoretically possible for Sigma to use a downed Ultron drone to hack into the Ultron conciousness and extract the relevant data on the molecular tech, but if he's able to overpower all of Ultron's defenses like that, and gain access to all his systems and shit, surely he could just turn off Ultron's whole conciousness? And then that invites the debate of who could hack into who, which doesn't seem like an answerable (or interesting) question.
this discussion isn't really a path that leads anywhere; regular old "who would win in a fight" conversations, there's usually something that can be compared sensibly. And the relative cyber security strengths of two fictional megalomaniacal robots ain't one of them.

That is an interesting fact about how he moves though.  That does sound like something Sigma would be able to exploit, essentially his body is restricted by radio waves that an average human could not deal with intercepting, but a machine like Sigma could.
It's not really radio waves, or anything in the realm of real world physics: it's crazy comic book science that more or less is altering reality on a relatively small scale, for one particular material. It's so advanced that I'm not sure Sigma would be able to understand it, much less replicate the technology quickly enough to use as a countermeasure against Ultron. And all that's presuming he'd even be able to get his hands on it!

All Sigma then would need do is to kill one of the lesser Ultron bodies and he'll gain the molecular signature and tech needed to mess with him.  Ultron's hive mind being less Zerg or Borg and more a strict singular consciousness across them all could very much backfire in that case.
Only the central body has the solid adamantium body and molecular rearranger; if Ultron had the resources, he'd make every drone an exact copy of his primary body (presumably with different adamantium signatures, though), but he didn't, and had to settle with downgraded ones. The point of the solid armor and molecular doodad is to give Ultron an essentially indestructible body with no weak points: the drones just have regular armor plates and joints, because there's no point in wasting resources to make the much more easily destroyed drones slightly more durable. So Sigma wouldn't be able to get his hands on that tech by taking down a random drone.

I guess it's theoretically possible for Sigma to use a downed Ultron drone to hack into the Ultron conciousness and extract the relevant data on the molecular tech, but if he's able to overpower all of Ultron's defenses like that, and gain access to all his systems and shit, surely he could just turn off Ultron's whole conciousness?

Surely his adamantium body doesn't play by straight DBZ rules, if you don't have a high enough power level you can't do jack squat to him?  I seem to recall that being a problem with Wolverine, that it was a poor idea to have a whole body composed only of adamantium as it would not be able to move, so if this is what his entire exoskeleton is supposedly comprised of he has to have weak spots somewhere.
They've got a very weird explanation for that: the adamantium that comprises Ultron's outer shell is all a single, solid piece of metal, with no joints, no gaps in the armor, nor any weak points at all. He's essentially a statue cast out of adamantium (though with non-adamantium internals). So how does he move? This is where things get bonkers: he manipulates the molecules of his adamantium to reshape it on the fly, using a "molecular rearranger" that is keyed to the specific adamantium signature used in his body (which means that his enemies can't just use a molecular rearranger of their own to remove that armor, they'd need to key into that same signature). It's some very wacky, absolutely nuts comic book science, but that's what they came up with!

That doesn't mean his internals are impervious to damage while his armor is intact, though: it is possible to damage his insides while still not doing much or any damage to his outsides, but the amount of power needed to do that is still pretty immense.

And of course, if his internals do get exposed in some way, he can be taken out much more readily. In fact, that was how Daredevil (with assists from Karnak and Gorgon of the Inhumans) was able to beat him once. Though that was very much a special case: it was an incarnation of Ultron that had been combined with every previous iteration into one mind and body, and was completely bug fuck nuts even for Ultron, to the point where it was tearing its own head off and ripping out its own wires and internals. So much so that it was less "Daredevil winning" and more of a "Daredevil helps Ultron commit suicide by knocking his head off with a big stick, after Ultron left his head hanging by a (non-adamantium) thread". It's a great fucking story, by the way!

But again, the only reason those internals got exposed was because Ultron himself was damaging his own armor, reshaping it as he ripped his guts out. It's not something anyone could do, unless they were a reality warper or something similar.

I'm really not sure what to think anymore; all the proposed theories as to why Luke Cage was cancelled seem to have at least one issue that implies that that theory is not the case. There's so much crazy intra- and inter-company drama going on here that I'm just gonna list all the things that are known for sure, to hopefully help begin to start narrowing things down:

- Marvel Studios was once a division of Marvel Entertainment, until Feige got sick of being micromanaged by Marvel's massive piece of shit CEO and was able to make Marvel Studios an independent entity answerable only to the higher-ups at Disney. However, Marvel Television, Marvel's TV production arm, which makes all of their MCU shows (among othets) remained with Marvel itself.

One of the more immediate and visible effects of this was on the TV side of things: Agents of SHIELD, in its first season (and to a lesser extent, its second) had a fair amount of crossover between the movies. Beyond just having Coulson as the lead character, you had an occasional Nick Fury appearance, as well two episode with Sif, and a few more minor characters crossing over (SHIELD agents who were in Winter Soldier, e.g.). That thing stopped pretty much immediately as soon as Marvel Studios became independent, with Coulson hanging on as the only remnant of what was supposed to be a series with a deep connection to the movies. Likewise, Agent Carter (the series) was put together before Marvel Studios broke off, so it not only got to have multiple different movie characters appear in the show, but it also had the writers of the Captain America movies as executive producers! That kinda thing just seems unthinkable now, given the frosty relationship Marvel Studios has with Marvel proper.

The Netflix shows, in contrast, seem designed specifically so that they don't really need to have much of a connection with any of the movies; this also holds true to Runaways and Cloak & Dagger; the separation generally feels pretty natural, since most of the movies focus on big, world-ending plots, whereas the basic promises of all of these shows depend on things being relatively low-scale and down-to-earth. That doesn't mean that there isn't the occasional weirdness, though (e.g., the weird refusal of the Netflix shows to have characters almost always avoid referring to the movie superheroes or events by name, instead using weird nicknames like "the green guy", or what have you. Also, I don't think Runaways made a single reference to *anything* else in the MCU?) Many of those are sylistic quirks, but that can't explain everything, and I think it again points to the strained relations between the two Marvels.

- the new Disney streaming service is getting those new, Marvel Studios-produced Loki and Scarlet Witch series; these (presumably) are going to be much, much, much, much, much more connected with the movies than anything we've seen so far. And perhaps Disney/Marvel Studios would prefer to have only Marvel Studios-made series on this new streaming service? There are other reasons why it doesn't seem likely that Luke Cage was cancelled so that it could get revived on this new streaming service, but I do think the weird relationship between the two Marvels is a major factor in everything being considered.

  -    I haven't seen anything that nailed down exactly why Iron Fist was cancelled, but there are sources talking about what happened to Luke Cage: apparently, this was an extremely late decision made due to creative differences with Netflix and the showrunner (and maybe also Marvel). They had already assembled a writers room for the third season, and were about to start preproduction. So I'm hesitant to put much stock in the idea that Marvel and Netflix want to combine the two shows into a Heroes For Hire type situation, because they absolutely wanted to make a third Luke Cage season; ultimately, they just were unable to agree upon everything... unless, perhaps, those creative differences involved Netflix and/or Marvel wanting the showrunner of Luke Cage to add Iron Fist as a co-lead or major supporting character (and probably also Colleen Wing), and maybe wrap up any lingering plotlines from Iron Fist's show? In which case, having failed to retool Luke Cage's show into a "Luke Cage show and also Iron Fist" type deal, they may want to start fresh and have a brand new creative team build a brand new show with the two as co-stars?

So, yeah. Right now I'm pretty suspicious of the idea that either show was cancelled in order to move them to Disney's streaming service, or to combine them into a Heroes For Hire show. I do think, however, that the later is a definite possibility: it just wasn't planned to be this way. Marvel would obviously like to keep making those shows, and if they can get Netflix to finance the production of a combined show, they'd definitely do it. But who knows!

Nah; it just adds the the size of the resulting file, and all that's really gained from it is having the alternate portraits already added in. But those are all already included in the folders of the characters that have them, so it just makes more sense to let people do that themselves and save on file size!

Jmprphman...

You have been greatly missed. I see you're updating the moves of your characters. Are there plans to separate the other modes of your characters that have them?
I'm not sure exactly what you mean? All the characters that have alternate modes have alternate .def's that allow easy access to said alt modes.

You are welcome, JMorphman! I'm not sure if I sent you the SF3 version of Kinteki Shu.
Yep, but I think I'm gonna keep her current close MK!

I think with a few touch-ups, the anims could work, but I'm not sure they fit in with the rest of his set at the moment.

Edit: Also, I just realized I need the timing for your Chun-Li with her intro against Yamazaki. I believe I got his side about right. If you want, I could send you what I got so far on him.
Haven't changed a thing (for that intro, at least) since that beta I put out in January.

Edit of an Edit: I keep forgetting to work on Maki's Zero Counters, so might I ask if anyone knows what they are from SFA3?
It's nothing special, just her hurricane kick move (SFA3 only has one counter per character).

I've been pretty busy and haven't been able to do much on Billy, but I have gotten back to him this week, and hopefully will be able to focus on him more now. In the meantime... Chun-Li is basically ready now, because the animations she needed are all finished now!

first we have her B + MK from SFIV

Many, many, many thanks to FeLo_Llop, Rai Tei, and MotorRoach for this anim; it looks stunning!

Why add this move? Well, cuz the target combo it's a part of is really cool!


Finally, there's her angled jumping HK from SFIII:

Thanks again to Felo for this anim!

Normal Chun-Li will lose her current angled j.HK in lieu of this, but the Shadow Lady mode will keep the old one; since Shadow Lady is basically Alpha Chun-Li, it makes sense to give her the classic, double up kick j.HK from SFII/SFA, while normal mode uses the modern one.

also, here's an extremely late reply to this
Kyo:

Since you'll be updating him soon, I figured I'd mention this. I'm pretty sure in CvS he can super cancel from his HCB + kick special right after he explodes p2 from holding them up. I remember this being my BnB finish with him from said special into his QCB, QCF + punch super. You also don't have the HCB + kick special CC loop. In fact, he can't do anything after doing said special while CC is active. While I rarely ever even use CC, Kyo is one of the few chars I can use it with some competence.
I tried out giving him a super cancel there and was really really not feeling it, might give him a cancel like KOFXIII, where it can only be canceled after the first hit, before the grab, but I dunno.

I did however add in the custom combo cancel!

-I wanted to do something along the lines of this:

https://i.imgur.com/rzMllcb.gif

... with when he connects his foot to his opponent on the ground, he'll stomp on them and then kick them high, buuuut this clashes too much with his present CvS sprites.
Hmm, well, perhaps you could add in his pursuit attack from Real Bout, Todome, as an automatic followup to the EX version, if the move connects. In the Real Bout games, it's an essential and natural followup to Yakiire, so it's a pretty natural inclusion!

The one thing to note is that it technically uses sprites that don't exist in the CvS set, but it very easily could be adapted using the existing foot stomp and Suna Kake animations (indeed, this is what SNK itself did in adapting the move for KOF98UM).

Also need an idea for EX Suna Kake.
Maybe it can leave the opponent in an extended stun state, but have enough startup time such that it can't be comboed into?

What needs to be done with Yakiire?

a proper Lvl. 2 version of the Poison Hand, since he does kick his opponent away from him after that one.
What about something like this?

Might be cool to have the opponent drawn in when he's retracting his arm after the stab, so that he can grab them more easily.

As for Maki, if leaves one more beta riiiight here. The main problem is with Ajaratengu (both normal and air types), of when opponent is grabbed, they'll stay in their Standing position until like 3 seconds later. Bushin Fungeki hasn't been done yet, and A.I. is not present. So if I can get Ajaratengu correctly, then I'll be pretty much set. Oh, and if I forgot any palettes, please let me know.
The opponent is still stuck in the superpause, so they won't have the effects of the TargetState and whatnot applied to them yet. The best way around this (while still preserving the current length of superpause and amount of grab startup) would be to have another SuperPause sctrl (with a time of 0) activate as soon as the throw connects, which will end the already active superpause.

This will still leave one tick where the opponent is frozen, however, so it's best to give the throw success animation a new AnimElem at the beginning that lasts for one tick, using the same sprite as the active frame of the throw attempt. This way, Maki and the opponent will stay in synch.

I had an idea about the level 3, one that would bypass the need for a bunch of new sprites: it might not be very popular, though.

Basically, I'd suggest making Drill the level 3. It was his P-Power in all the Fatal Fury games, and it's also his NEO Climax Hidden Super Desperation MAX 2 or whatever they call the max level supers in KOF XIV; there's certainly enough precedence for it. Maybe he could also have the secret level 5 Drill from the Real Bout games? (it also appears in KOF98UM for EX Yamazaki)

And then he can have Guillotine and ...!?!? as his normal supers. Perhaps even make Dokusyu/whatever that B,D,DB+punch move is called a super, like it is in XIV? (I'm not sure if the sprites would support that, however; they gave the move much more impact so it could function as a super).

Eh, whatever, can't all be personal winners.  See how it goes, I suppose.  Did Nightwing ever deal with Bane?  Because Daredevil deals with Kingpin, and seeing Batman has issues with Bane, and I'm presuming Nightwing never really got to a point where he was objectionably better than his Batman outside some parallel universe, Daredevil's then probably beaten bigger foes.
I don't believe so, but it's certainly possible that at some point they fought.

I will point out one little complicating factor in all this: while Daredevil faces off quite frequently with Kingpin, 99% of the time they interact, it's not by fighting; furthermore, when they do fight, Kingpin usually wins! I'm pretty certain that it took like, 25+ years for Daredevil to finally decisively defeat Kingpin in a one-on-one match (over in Bendis's Daredevil #50). Kingpin is a *seriously* powerful dude; after all, he debuted as a Spider-Man villain, who—despite being a non-superpowered human—was a serious threat to a (teenaged and inexperienced) Spider-Man! Kingpin also was a pretty even match for Captain America a few years after his debut!

All of which should not be taken to imply that Daredevil is no match for Nightwing! It's just, Kingpin is a really tough dude, and it's only natural that Daredevil would get his ass beat every time he tried to take a swing at ol' Fisk-y! In fact, I'd say this match up is heavily in Daredevil's favor; Daredevil is generally considered to be one of the finest martial artists at Marvel, and his enhanced senses are a huge asset. Though Nightwing is obviously a seriously talented fighter, he's far from the Bat-family's best fighter.
