Ah whoops, completely forgot about Rugal Execution being in CvS1!

But yeah, Waru's Rugal has a bunch of other sprites (like God End and the God Rugal stance) that have been edited to normal Rugal.

I would say... none of the above.

  • Kaiser Phoenix is really really really lame, and I'm honestly shocked that SNK didn't totally ditch it or revamp it when they made 2002UM (I suppose they figured Rugal didn't need to be even stronger). But regardless, it's a really dumb looking move that goes on for too long, for piddling damage. It sucks!
  • God End just doesn't feel right with regular Rugal, it very much feels like a God Rugal exclusive type of move; like Shin Akuma and Misogi.
  • And Dead End Screamer just doesn't feel grand enough to be a level 3, unless it was reworked a good deal.

So instead, I would propose something completely different, something that would be both unique and doable with CvS sprites: Rugal Execution.

this is an Omega Rugal super that only appeared in KOF98, but God Rugal also had a version of it as a special. And that alone feels pretty natural: (regular) Rugal's most powerful move, his level 3, is just a regular old super for Omega Rugal. And for God Rugal? It's so unimportant that it's been downgraded to a special.

Anyways, offical CvS sprites exist of this move, but only for God Rugal. But luckily enough, warusaki3's Rugal has normal Rugal sprited versions of this move, and a few others (I'm not sure if waru himself made the sprites or not). So I was just tinkering around with that Rugal and came up with this:

God Rugal's version is only a special, and thus lacks a lot of the grandeur the KOF version does. So I added some frames from God End (which also exist edited into normal Rugal form), giving him a more impactful startup and finish to the move. The God End sprites would need some minor editing to make his left hand not drenched in blood, but that should be pretty simple too.

oh and I just remembered that Vans's (normal) Rugal used Rugal Execution as his MAX2, so there's precedent!!!

Try removing the "Time = -1" from the last TargetBind.

In that case, I'd definitely recommend Double Zeta; the early going is a bit rough, but once the show figures out its tone, it's good. And then after that, you can jump onto Char's Counterattack and close off Tomino's early-UC work!

@Jmorphman: Thanks, I’ll check later! Could you also send the mappings you used?
They're the ones already defined in the Python file; I didn't mess with those the first time I ran them, and thus ran into the problem. But every test I've done with mappings I've defined myself have worked fine.

@Jmorphman: Huh, can you give me an example? They're just bytes so they should load fine in anything.
I tried it again, and narrowed everything down: only got errors from the default mapping. When I tried my own mapping, that worked out fine. For whatever reason, the default mapping provided leads to palette files that are 1.65KB big, and I suspect that's what Photoshop is grousing about. So basically, it's not really an issue!

here's the palettes I used

What should be my next Gundam series after I finish 08th MS Team? Thinking ZZ but a friend of mine called its first cour some Saturday morning cartoon shenanigans. Might go with G Gundam instead.
What else have you seen? I'd recommend 0080 if you haven't seen it before; it's absolutely stupendous. If you're interested in stuff that's sorta similar to 08th MS Team (in other words, stuff set in UC without newtypes and a veneer of being more "realistic"), there's 0083 (although personally I can't stand it) and Thunderbolt. And as Speedpreacher mentioned, G works very well as a palate cleanser from all the doom and gloom of the UC stuff.

also ZZ is rough at the beginning but it's never outright bad, and it finds a good balance relatively quickly. It gets way more hate than it deserves.

G sucks. If you want the same basic plot but with actual fights and animation, watch Build Fighters.
This is absolutely disgusting. Get the fuck outta here.

Build Fighters fucking rules, though.

See what I mean? Getting a tiny tiny patch of pixels to look like it's a mouth blowing out a candle (or I guess a fiery finger, in this case) is frustratingly difficult



I'm still not sure if I've got it right. :S

someone who is good at spriting please help me draw these mouths on kyo. my family is dying


ahem, uh, I mean, I'm having trouble with this damn mouth animation. I tried to do it myself but it looked like absolute shit (it can currently be seen in the latest Kyo update as EX Kyo's taunt). Would anyone care to take a whack at it? :3

I also forgot to mention, I made a new tool to assist in converting old palettes to new ones. I’ll admit it’s not THE most intuitive since you have to manually enter the palette indices to copy over, but it does its job quite well. @Jmorphman: you in particular may find it useful.

https://github.com/Jesuszilla/ConvertACTPalettes
Sweet; I had whipped up something similar to handle my various palette updates, but this is a lot more compact.

Photoshop seems unable to load some of the palettes it outputs, though the colors are all still there and in the right place (and Fighter Factory reads 'em fine).

EDIT: Hey, I just noticed there's a way to to implement a stylish face and still keep it sharing colors with everything! By putting a "shadow layer" just below the projectile.
From my tests with some of the samples Froz made of the FX, I came to the same conclusion; additionally, I found that not only of the ES projectile, but all of his FX looked best with an additional subtractive transparency layer beneath them. I suspect that all hi-res FX derived from sprite based effects (as opposed to CvS style effects) look best when displayed this way (for example, Guile's Flash Kick FX—another sprite based effect—also looked best with a subtractive layer).


:smitten:

also, did a quickie test of a potential updated separation on Kyo:

I'm already gonna be doing some fixes on his separated sprites, so it should be really really easy to add in finger and arm separation. And because those two have been added:

it's possible to make relatively decent looking sleeved palettes!

That's an error on my end,; was testing something regarding lie down time and I forgot to change it back. I fixed it shortly after release but I never got around to updating Demitri cuz of the FX stuff. Just change the lie down time to 30 or whatever, and PRETEND IT NEVER HAPPENED :gonk:
