Title: New Character: Sumireko Usami

Story: A human from the outside world who is able to enter Gensokyo whenever she dreams. In reality, there are actually two beings who go by the name of Sumireko Usami: her human body in the outside world, and her doppelganger inside Gensokyo, both of whom share the same consciousness. Because she lives in the outside world, she's more knowledgeable about certain things that most residents of Gensokyo wouldn't understand, so when she heard about the black fragments appearing throughout Gensokyo, she was one of the first to identify their true nature. "Whoah, these look like computer chips! What are these doing in Gensokyo? They look kinda old though. Hey, I wonder what kind of data is on them?" She would say to herself. "And they bestow new abilities to whoever holds them? It's almost like a Technical Machine! But how is that even possible? Is this like, some sort of virus?" Unfortunately for Sumireko, she's about to learn just how close to the truth she actually is.

Sumireko wasn't someone I was originally on planning, but thanks to the efforts of both Pin and Blade from MMV, the latter of whom I commissioned to sprite the remaining sprites of Sumireko, she won't appear out-of-place in a visual sense. Most of her zoning capabilities from the source game will remain intact, along with a few new moves owing to the lack of any kind of crouching stance in the source game.

Telekinesis - Telephone Pole, the move everyone hates and loves from ULiL/AoCF. Honestly the hardest part about the telephone pole was synchronizing the hitbox with the actual angle rotation of the graphic while still simulating the hitpause and allowing it to hit multiple times. By having it use an actual hitpause, it would delay certain system related things. That forced me to simulate the hitpause using an intermediary state, but to prevent the animation from advancing, I had to use a changeanim to return to the previous element, but that causes the timing to screw up, so I had to make it so that each element with a hitbox was exactly 1f long, forcing me to split up certain frames. After all was said and done, I realized I could just synchronize the angle rotation with each animation element instead of making it a gradual rotation thats applied every tick, which would require me to do the math manually and use static values and variable assignments, but it was worth it in the end.

Sorry I've been neglecting this, but revised the first post to reflect changes that were made to Sumireko since the initial planning phase. Everything listed above will pretty much be her final moveset.
