Frankie (JumpStart 1st Grade) Released

Q: Who is Frankie, and why him?
A: Frankie is the mascot character from JumpStart 1st Grade, an edutainment PC game from 1995. While initially only appearing in games made for 1st Graders, he eventually became the mascot for the entire series. For my first character, I wanted to challenge myself and tried to imagine how an edutainment character could work in a fighting game environment. April is also LazyGameReview's Edutainment Month, so this works out perfectly.

Q: How do I play Frankie?
A: Inspired by the adaptive difficulty system in the JumpStart games, he has a unique mechanic involving combos. If you're able to rack up a high combo, you begin to gain access to new moves and powers on a leveled system, up to 3 levels. If you drop a significant amount of low combos, however, you will start to level down, so be careful!

Q: Any additional modes?
A: Yes, he has 3 modes in total. Normal Mode is inspired by several "classic" appearances of the character (although most references are from the original 1st Grade game). Expect cameos from the infamous Glop Monster, a kid asking for a whole tray of peas, and more. Mature Mode takes inspiration from the 3rd-6th Grade "JumpStart Adventures" games. Here, his combos are much more advanced and his specials and supers can feature cameos from characters like Botley, Jo Hammet, Ms. Grunkle, etc. EX Mode pulls from his later appearances (Such as the "Advanced" and "3D Virtual World" series) and features new attacks, as well as cameos from other Preschool-2nd Grade characters.

...Ok, ignoring the argument going on here for a second, I noticed that palette 6 on the default DEF file activates Rasetsumaru mode, even though the readme states that colors 1-6 is Normal mode.

Ok, so I have this really weird dream character that all stems from a childhood obsession with his franchise:

Tenderheart Bear from the Care Bears. Yes, I'm serious. This isn't some edgy parody version either, my vision for him is that he's mostly true to the loving and kind self he is and doesn't really want to hurt you, but is simply forced to fight because this is a fighting tournament. To anyone who's actually insane enough to do this, my preferred sprite style would lean towards CvS (There is a GBA game and maybe some games on obscure edutainment consoles but those are hardly enough for a fighting game). As for gameplay, I would like something CvS based (maybe even straight up PoTS) but something more custom could work.

If I were making him, I'd try to have both a Normal and EX mode: The Normal mode is based on the 80s versions, and uses his magic tummy symbol a lot. He can be able to make heart-shaped (of course) projectiles, use a cloud car (yes I'm serious), call assists that would be a mix of fellow bears and Care Bear Cousins, and of course the Level 3 super's gotta be the classic Care Bear Stare. EX mode is more based on later versions, specifically "Adeventures in Care-a-Lot" with a mix of the movies from the early 2000s. This version doesn't use the tummy symbol most of the time, but relies more on physical athletic moves, being more of a daredevil. His assists also don't feature the Care Bear Cousins. A lot of work would need to be done due to basically no sprites being available (though again, some inspiration could be taken from that one GBA game) and more of a moveset would need to be developed beyond my rough ideas, but still, this would be quite... something.

I could help engineer this moveset:

Statistically, Tenderheart is well... tender, with sloppy offensive and defensive stats, though with a defensive slant. His basic moves aren't too much to write home about, either. His backdash is surprisingly swift,though, good for getting away from enemies. In EX mode, this backdash becomes a hop, allowing him to perform a quick attack as a getaway. Basic attacks are used to combo into his Unique Attacks, a playstyle more emphasized in EX mode. From there, his heart projectiles are used as the combo enders, more focused on stunning a foe for a combo than dealing damage. He can also use the cloud car as another combo ender, recommended as his projectiles are otherwise anti-air oriented, opening him up for juggle opportunities. His real strength, however, lies in his ability to utterly swarm the battlefield with helpers. He can have up to 5 helpers on-screen at a time. Within this strength also lies weakness; each helper can survive only a set number of hits.  Every helper he loses, his Level 3 loses its power. If his Level 3 has all helpers able to aid, it is at its most powerful, but it makes barely a splash if he has lost too many partners in battle. Each helper has a different purpose, as well, anything from setting traps to healing.

EX mode has far more Unique Attacks for the purposes of lengthy combos. This makes up for the fact his helpers have diminished in number (Maybe use characters from the "Care Bears Ripoffs" of the 80s like Little Clowns of Happytown?) and his stats remain poor.  He is also able to dodge in a variety of ways, allowing him to bob and weave outta trouble. His projectile remains an anti-air move, but gains a more grounded, if close-range, counterpart. I could see at least one mode have a belly dive like Cheng Sinzan, along with a Super version.

Now this is what I like to see! I pretty much agree with all of these ideas, way better than anything I may have been able to come up with. A note about the EX version's assists though, I'd rather just stick to using actual CB characters, but I like the idea of there being less of them.

That's... odd. The hitbox should look like this:



So it should've worked correctly. Maybe it is a 1.1 bug?

Congrats on the release of Rose!!!

...Now that you have a nice 4 characters under your belt (with a 5th on the way, it seems), have you considered getting a website? Somewhere to easily access all your characters in one place.

Oh yeah, speaking of voices, do you have an actor for Mario, or are you gonna go with the good ol' "rip lines straight from the movie" approach?

Hey Ume, there's another creator named Cruz who's made a few DW styled characters. Would you consider them good enough to be listed in the post? I should point out that Cruz made 2 Arcana Heart characters that are actually 3 button rather than the traditional 6 button style (but are still otherwise DW styled), so if you list them it's probably worth noting.

Well... not EVERY move or animation a character has NEEDS to reference something from their original games. If they need to make up something to make the character fit into the game a little more, that's perfectly fine. There's tons of "made up" stuff in Smash since the beginning (Captain Falcon is the most obvious).

Also, there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting a character, but not coming up with a fully detailed moveset. A lot of Smash fans just don't get that for some reason, lol. Like, I want Chell from Portal for example, but I don't really know how the hell they can implement a balanced portal mechanic. I just think it would be neat to see Portal content in Smash, is that really too much to ask? I guess coming up with a moveset "helps your case" when convincing others that your character is worth a damn, but at the end of the day, Sakurai has the final say (even if Nintendo provides him with a list to choose from with the DLC nowadays...). Aside from that one time they held the Ballot, our "cases" don't really mean much in the long run.

A few years back KFM claimed he was going to lose his hosting and needed unbanning to say "goodbye to people"
Bea then supplied the tools and me and her made him a copy of the site to be a backup, but he wouldnt get unbanned.

it then turned out to be another of his schemes and since he didnt get unbanned he returned to his affairs.

So anyway heres random select archives from a few years back
http://network.mugenguild.com/rs/


I cant reasonably tell when this was taken, but I hope it helps someone.


That's quite helpful (Since I don't know the extent of what the Wayback Machine saved). Thanks for this link, Iced! I might edit this into the first post.

Did they shut down the site or is it a host problem like MFFA did a few times? :(

Honestly, I actually don't have a clue... This is the first time this has happened with RandomSelect as far as I know. It's possible, but I don't want to get my hopes up. There is also the fact that Piiym (the host) was hacked a while ago (Not sure when exactly, but I think it was within the last year at least).

The long standing MUGEN website Randomselect, which hosted a large number of characters and stages, has went down as of today.

http://randomselect.piiym.net/cgi-sys/suspendedpage.cgi

Not much is lost as far as I'm aware, since it can still be accessed via the Wayback Machine, but still, it sucks to see this historic site go down.

EDIT: If anyone still wants to download any characters, stages, or other misc MUGEN things that were hosted on the site, this archive should help (Thank you, Iced, for bringing this to my attention): http://network.mugenguild.com/rs/

This is an amazing introductory post. I believe PoTS's characters and some of the more faithful PoTS style creator's characters should be some of the first characters to download if you're starting a Mugen roster, and this post serves as a great guide for those who are new. I honestly believe that this should be pinned, given the sheer number of PoTS clones out there. Seriously, it can be confusing at times, especially for a newcomer!
