Title: Dcat's TMNT WIP Thread
Post by: Dcat on July 02, 2020, 04:53:24 AM
Trying my hand at everyone's favorite Action News Reporter!

I intend for this to be a joint project between me and our very own COTM Winner DJ HANNIBALROYCE (https://mugenguild.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=81441). I'm still spriting her basics at the moment but I came up with a few early sprites that I'd like to share with you all. this thread is to update you guys on my progress and for general open discussion for any move suggestions, cameos, or anything you guys would like to see in the character going forward. Or if anyone's got any old artwork box-scans or classic TMNT gems they'd like to contribute, post it here and as always, thanks for your time.

I was expecting Rocksteady or Casey Jones but April would be interesting. My only question is will the gameplay be similar to your other TMNT chars or will it have the over the top style Royce’s chars usually have

Yeah, I was thinking about going with either of them too, but thought that April needed some respect. I've always been a fan of jumpsuit April and really wanted to see her converted for MUGEN. After seeing Merso-x's excellent Rescue-Palooza game and how he has her use the microphone as a whip attack I was inspired!


My only question is will the gameplay be similar to your other TMNT chars or will it have the over the top style Royce’s chars usually have

I want April to play as a sort of mix of both of our respective styles. Personally I really like to focus on combo-heavy gameplay, with lots of juggles and all that. But I wanted to give her some seamless full-screen "News Report" type specials & supers. My skill-set with coding those immersive hyper attacks is severely lacking in my opinion, so I sought out DJ HANNIBAL ROYCE for that department and he's graciously agreed to help bring April O'Neil to life for MUGEN.

I've been an admirer of Royce's work and the really unique approach to gameplay he always takes is just pure creativity. All the quirks and surprises they bring to things should offer much more appeal to this project than if I were going it alone. Plus Royce's AI coding is stellar, and that's always been another of my weak spots lo these many years.

Together I hope we can make a great April O'Neil character that has some classic callbacks, Royce's interactive moveset/ Over the Top Supers combined with solid combo potential you've come to expect from an arcade TMNT creation! Still need to compile the .SFF and really get things going here, the color seperation is doing me in a bit... stay tuned.

This looks really cool! Good luck on your project! I guess you can always do a move involving a news van running someone over or maybe even incorporating that intro where the statue of liberty is stolen (maybe have it dropped on the opponent or something) wishing you all the best with this!

Here's some images I hope that can help, ideas from the action figures and the intro I mentioned from Turtles in Time

Dcat and DJHR working together is a sight to behold. And we're getting another awesome TMNT character as well.

For April's moveset, using the gun and shurikens her figure came with is a good concept, but she could definitely use her fan from the 2012 series.

Aww... Such a cute sprite style lol. Looks really nice, good luck with everything. Looking forward to it.

I've been trying to update/fix-up my initial sprite edits from her cameo in my Shredder character. But I've found that I've needed to resize her for the full character and completely overhaul some things. Hopefully it'll be familiar enough to read as '87 cartoon April

GTA said:
Also, nice to see to get attention of April. You have good taste. I guess Rocksteady can wait, unless you make a echo fighter of Bebop (lol).

Anyway, on April. We can't forget the many incarnation of Aprils in other TMNT universe. So, why not give her different clothing on her intro or in her win pose. Like the way Morrigan does that. Her special moves based on the TMNT Fighting Sega Game.

That's a great idea! there's so many different Aprils, to choose from.

Yeah I have some ideas for Rocksteady. just thought that April needed to get rolling before attempting him since there's far fewer base sprites available for her from the source games. I have a general direction for where I wanna go with Rocksteady but I needed a bit more help with idea engineering for April, and thought it best to start getting some ideas down for her.

My dream goal is to possibly make as many characters as possible (April, Rocksteady, Casey Jones, & Splinter included) so I could one day put 'em all in a big complete fighter like what Kamekaze did with TMNT x Justice League. The trend in mugen seems to be full-game fighter packs.
Title: Re: TMNT April O'Neil WIP
Post by: XANDERAC on July 03, 2020, 06:14:24 PM
Wishing you good luck on completing all your goals for future characters as well! I know it doesn't necessarily apply to your characters but if you did decide to include a Midnight Bliss animation, you can probably even reserve one of her various looks for that as well, otherwise just the variable intros would be great. I don't think it would help much but you might get some ideas for animations from the Smash-Up game although that's a different version, but maybe some katana based moves would be a nice nod to that iteration of her

Classic April always showed aptitude for driving and operating heavy machinery so I'd love to see her  utilizing the News Van, News bike, and News helicopter in her specials.

This is good  kinda like a  horizontal spin attack that does multi-hit. Ooh like Jojo's clacker attack. and she could maybe get a bit acrobatic with it like a baton or ribbon twirler. Varied button presses for different strengths kinda like Fei-Long's Rekka Fist in Street Fighter, Yes!

I've got some screencaps of her purple NewsBike from an episode where they introduce Casey Jones I think

I like this idea of using the Turtle Van as well. Maybe a super that utilizes that intro screen of her driving the van with turtles in the reflection of the driver's side-window. I'll have the van hit the enemy then cut to a splash screen of April smirking while the opponent flies off into the air hurt in the side mirror reflection.

Great start!  Besides "Casey Jones: Outlaw Hero," other episodes I remember that feature the News Bike are "Burne's Blues" (briefly), "Mr. Nice Guy" (she looks really cool in that one), and "Attack of Big MACC" (doesn't wear her safety helmet in that one).

I put this together a few years back just as a tribute to April's amazing road skills:

I wanted to work in a little of her helicopter skills (both flying and maintenance) but couldn't fit the song length.

EDIT:
Maybe give her a super from the TMNT cartoon when she was evil https://youtu.be/s4exK1hg04I at around the 1:47 mark she'll glow blue and will shoot lightning across the stage.

There is a classic toon parallel of evil energy-blasting April, seen in the "Lost Queen of Atlantis" episode where April wears a mystic cult gem which makes her believe she is an ancient Atlantis Queen and gives her all the powers associated with the title:

Will you use her voice in any of the attacks, sort of like the Kirby mic ability/Sindel's scream attacks, or some kind of attack where let's say she starts at a 0 level news rating but after combos her news ratings go up, and this could in turn work sort of like Frank West's ability in how they handled him in MVC3 with the combo/camera system. Where if you happened to reuse some of the same sprites but either better reach/equipment, that way if there are some extra ideas you can implement them into the upgrades.

You could probably incorporate some scratch based super as well, like Wolverine? just some thoughts, new attacks look great!

Post by: Dcat on July 16, 2020, 03:59:26 PM
^ I like this idea for the news rating... but I've never really been good at nerf-ing characters though. If it was something where she wasn't utterly useless without the specific certain parameters being met, it sounds like a good idea. Saw a tutorial on Frank West and it said that everything from his attack range to his jump distance was restricted based on the leveling system, it could add for some complexity though. And a departure from my other characters since I don't really do secret move gauges or power charging...

Got a new attack done inspired by Mariah from JoJo +  my spinning mic variant

Post by: XANDERAC on July 17, 2020, 12:58:44 AM
It would definitely be up to you to determine how complex, I don't know if it would need to be as involved, maybe just affecting the range/strength but if you were down to see how it would be with experimenting how it would affect other parameters like maybe attack speed, jumps, wall/floor bounces for combo extension, and such like with Frank at least it gives you room to mess around with.

You could potentially have it so that she, like Frank would start from lowest level and progressively move towards the highest, or, just have it work kind of like the style meters in DMC where she actively has to stay in combat to maintain her level, or she progressively loses it for playing too defensively, or just for getting hit, so it rewards maybe more of an aggressive play style? I think there's definitely potential

Wow, that CS is looking very good. I didn't think she would be able to get something with very many options. Looking forward to see what pals get made for her. I like the idea of a mic leveling system, though not the mutant cat thing. To the best of my knowledge, that was just a one off episode. It'd be a very obscure reference overall. It's also not something she could do at will, it just happened.

I do like the idea of using the Turtles van, or even her own Channel 6 vehicles for supers. The leveling mic mechanic wouldn't have to be as involved/complex as Frank West's. It could be just directly linked with her mic specials and super(s). You can even make a nice play on the system, calling it like: "News Ratings". Giving it a lighter cap too. Like 3-5 being the max.

The higher the level, the more powerful her mic specials/supers can be. Like for example, that mic whip attack you referenced to from the Rescue Palooza game. The higher her rating level, the more damage and reach that attack could gain.
Title: Re: TMNT April O'Neil WIP
Post by: XANDERAC on July 20, 2020, 06:07:57 AM
Yeah I think in general, the idea of having some extra sprites you can toss in as references for the variations would be neat. Possibly even affecting her win screen, where if she ends on a different rating you can get a better victory animation where she's more celebratory or upset depending on what her final rating is when she wins the fight. I think it would be a nice thing to play around with for sure. I don't think it should be as complicated as Frank's either, but as I said I don't know if it should be a consistent thing myself, where her ratings level would stay, or have it rewarded/removed based on playing more offensively or defensively, I'm not a character creator myself but I genuinely want to see what this turns out to be.

Post by: Miru962 on July 21, 2020, 07:11:11 PM
I like what we have so far. Given that a coloring book was given a wink to for Krang's crossbow, maybe look into some of the accessories from her variant action figures for moves? I think some of them would look pretty neat. I like the ideas posted so far.

 I've started very basic coding for him. Might not be up to my regular snuff with this one. The spritework takes a lot of time, but way easier then April.

Man you’ve given us TMNT, Shredder, Krang, Bebop... you’re like half way or more done with April and now Splinter good stuff bro

Once Splinter is done, if you knock out Rocksteady, Casey Jones and finish April you have your own mini TMNT game

Cool! I like his sprites so far. The shading on his motion blurs and feet could be adjusted, though. They look a bit pillow shaded now.

Splinter is looking really cool so far DC. I fricken love his hurt foot animation a lot, nicely done. Is the side kick going to include his tail though? Based off of all your other creations, I'm sure this is going to be really good as well, even if you say he may not be up to your normal snuff. That's TBD.

One thing I might recommend is making Splinter's snout a little longer and slightly droopy in side profiles like the bow, to keep him more "on model" and look a bit less like a dog. It's not a noticeable problem in most attacks, but for something like the bow, it would be a good opportunity to try and match it up.  Maybe tilt the ears back a bit too in the full standing position.

I've already send these quotes for Splinter.

Quote

"There is no monster more dangerous than a lack of compassion."

"I do not wish to fight. But cast a stone into the lake, and the ripples will return to you."

"If you look for happiness outside of yourself, you'll never find it. Happiness exists only within you."

"If you think too much about what is coming, you will lose sight of what is. You must be fully in the moment so you can fight without thinking."

Vs. Leo:
"There are no excuses when you are the leader, my son."

Vs. Ralph:
"Your own anger defeats you from the inside out."

Vs. Don:
"A wise ninja does not seek out an enemy who he does not fully understand."

Vs. Mike:
"It is not the student place to say when a lesson is learned. The student place is to listen and learn."

Vs. Shredder:
"Death comes for us all, Oroku Saki, but something much worse comes for you. For when you die, it will be without honor."

Vs. Krang:
"Its remarkable what one can do, when one is forced to."

Vs. Bebop:
"Running into battle without knowledge or preparation is foolish. Sometimes it is best to sit still. The answers will come."

Vs. Rocksteady:
"Technology is a means, not and end. It is you who must prevail in battle, not your weapon."

Very nice, dcat!

Let me recommend as a creative reference, the episode "The Sword of Yurikawa" (Season 6) where Splinter uses an ancient Japanese sword, which takes on special powers in the hands of the righteous, and emits a flaming glow:

He also does this move!

Hopefully somebody out there wants to complete the character and do a full release one day.

Hello Dcat,

How you doing? I see you release for a opensource of Rocksteady, a bit sooner than the previous releases. I understand that our lifes are different than usual. But what's the world has unforseen circumstances. Back to the topic, I've made the portraits for Rocksteady. You can choose what portrait is the best.
(https://i.imgur.com/7m4kJxS.png)

Just like Splinter, this is a tough one. I think 4 is the best i made. You're the man and you may choose what you like.

Good luck,

-HP + HK SnapKick Air Launcher

Good work.
I get a lot of nostalgia from when I was playing the first TMNT arcade game.

That's great. I want to create him in a collaborative Opensource mindset. So you can add stuff to him upload the file and it'll go in the final character

Coded some new Splinter Supers today

Tried to animate Splinter's Idle stance. Here's my crack at it

If some of you more capable spriters could help me out here, I'd appreciate it.
Scratch that I checked it out in-game and it works for me!

I think the shifted angle of Splinter's head makes the whole thing look much improved!

I so love playing Rocksteady, and it has been so long, since you started making Mugen chars, and now we get a Rocksteady, and very soon, a Splinter, which I am VERY excited for, good luck, on getting on out soon, thanks.

I also have a super attack idea, for Splinter, its similiar to the Turtles "Body Slam" attack, but he body slams 3 times, and then throws you in the air, and then Pressure Points you, the pressure point is a reference, to 2012 splinter, when he'd pressure point literally everyone, and they;d be stunned, or just straight up knocked out.
