It's fairly difficult for me to try and link crouching MK into MK Geri. It's not impossible, but it's definitely not an easy link for me at least. I dunno if the same can be said for anyone else, though. The Kuzuryureppa tweak would help him deal more damage, which does help to offset the damage he takes, so that's a bonus too.
To offset the amount of complaining I'm doing in this thread, I've got
a some palettes for Ken: Five for Classic/SF3 and another five for Violent
Spoiler: Ken Palettes (click to see content)
Spoiler: V. Ken Palettes (click to see content)
There are more but there's some funkiness with the PNGs, so I gotta check out wtf.
Fixed the funkiness and grouped all of the palettes together all proper-like.
Edit: One note of feedback and a suggestion:
- Against certain characters, Kuzuryureppa can be blocked mid-move right as the Shinryuken portion is starting. I'm not sure if this is also one of those weird 1.1isms or not, but I notice it happening against Ikaruga's and Infinite's characters mainly.
- I think it'd be cool if you gave Violent Ken his howl as a special winpose if you KO with Shinbu Messatsu. I know it's not what happens in source, but I think it'd look sick and go with the rest of the evil shotos, even if it isn't actually a Raging Demon.
