I'll be taking a look at these videos this coming week after work for sure!

The location for something like this should be in  Tips, Tricks, Tutorials though. Thank you for making this.  :D

I was thinking of that section, But i figured it'll get more spotlight here.

When i finish finish, i'll post it there with all the videos.

I gotta code a elemental bullet system for her, and sound effects and minor things then i can release her.

so maybe 2 or 3 more videos depending on how i plan things out.

and your welcome about making it. Lately i've felt really distant from mugen and I figured if i quit mugen i want to leave my mark on the community. and what better way than to be the first one to release a full video tutorial on character creation?

EDIT: Also i'll be sorta taking requests how to code certain types of moves, like for instance I've got a request for a ReversalHitDef tutorial, for coding reversals. I would use KFM as the dummy character in the video.

Fuck yeah Ryon. This is great. You should expand this a bit more with input from Cybaster and Cyanide if you ask me.

Thanks for the share man, I'll gladly watch with full attention as I'd love to learn character making at some point.
All of your Mugen Portrait needs may be found HERE.

I'd like to report two robots on the MFG forums: One is EXShadow. The other is Saikoro.
There should be a Saikoro plugin for Photoshop.

Mmmm no not really, I could show my own style, but it is my own style and I can't draw people. sooo yeah.

I'm sharing my knowledge of what I (ME) knows and how I (ME) does what i do in mugen.
If i used there input it wouldnt really be from me it would be from them.

And my goal of these videos are to show people how to make characters if good creations come out of this then awesome, if bad creations come out of this then awesome. At least people learn to make characters properly (by my standards)

And both Cybaster and Cyanide are what I consider Mugen Heroes. I've been a fan of there works for over a decade. So I have nothing but respect for em both.

Didn't watch them yet, but the fact you've made them and I know you have standards already make them awesome to my book for newcomers. :)

I'm usually more for written tutorials, since it's easier to read them and see the code directly, doign some copy-paste and research directly from the code and explanations, rather than from a video, but hey, videos have their advantage too, as showing progress in real-time and showing things interactively.

Thanks for these.

Having never made a character I can't say anything about the info, but as far as a video tutorials go I don't think  you need the annotation links to the other parts throughout the entire thing.  Having them at the beginning and end would be fine, but having them constantly up there just blocks what you're doing sometimes defeating the purpose of a video. 

Sure people can turn off annotations if they want, but they might worry about missing other useful annotations.

the first video isnt anything really.

its really just a small introduction, with how to find sprites, and a little idea of how to rip sprites.

the 2nd video is really ripping sprites. But I understand your point, I wasnt sure if i should have had them throughout.

Thank you Cybaster, I Hope it helps somebody.

I added part 8, which is not generally based around any certain set of characters, other than my own.

But it is used as a form of review of helper coding, and projectile coding.

as well as some interesting ways to make moves and supers.

Convenience at its finest. I'll be sure to give these tutorials a view in the case that I actually do intend on creating a character. It's always nice for someone to create a video despite some others having read through the documentation. I applaud your efforts, Ryon.
