Being these ones my first two works regarding stages, you can expect nothing but simplicity.

**************************

With the popularity of Vanguard Princess and the help from 2df sprite and sound ripper, I was expecting lots of conversions from 2df2002 games, but it looks like I was wrong.  o_O

Since I'm with guts of creating something to Mugen, I will make something from those games.

**************************

For those ones who don't know what is Magical Chaser: Stardust of Dreams, see this video and discover why it's my favourite fighting game:

**************************

Low-res stages, since there isn't much need of hi-res elements in them. Even so, I hope you like my first work.

- - - Both links removed, since I'm producing hi-res versions of them and the result is much better. More details below - - -

Both of them are very very blurry and just about everything has extreme color loss.

2dk2nd_sprite_sound_ripper is berry easy to use. Just drag a .player, .stge or. kgt into the executable and it will rip the sprites automatically, .png and .wav formats.
Download it at http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?z1wj2it4wvg

Yup, after I concluded new projects I discovered how to avoid colorloss, and I can make better works now  :)

Yesterday I finished another stage from Magical Chaser. Now it's hi-res, so I think I'll have to edit the title of the thread. I'm berry satisfied with the result.

Aiko Stage (hi-res)

I intend to make more conversions soon.

Not quite there yet, but it's an improvement.

You still got some blur and colorloss there, but not as much as the previous stages.

Looks like that time was put to good use. :)

ATM I can tell that Onpu's Concert Hall is a little blurry/lossy around the light (noticeable on the keyboard and drumset)

Could it be because I optimize the original pics in Fighter Factory? This is the only reason I can think, because the only time when I convert the 24-bit pics in 8-bit versions is via the Palette Editor in FF  :S

I'm not quite sure there. It's been quite some time since I made a stage, and I was rather bad at it.

Keep the 24-bit source images.
They'll be very useful in the near future.

 And the Royal Wonder Academy, the background character sprites clash with the stage.

Well, that's exactly how the stage looks in Magical★Chaser:

Well I didn't actually play that game...
So....

Yeah. Not that it won't change my opinion on sprites clashing, but whatever.

Meteo-san's stage re-released in hi-res version, the improvements are really noticeable, even though this is the most graphically simple stage in the game:

Harbour at Night

I really like the way your taking the criticism. :)
For the most part, the stages you have made are very creative, and good to use.
1 and 2 are a color loss and blurry. But that could get fixed in the future maybe.

Keep putting yourself into the positive side, You have more talent then I do. Lucky you learned how to sprite, very difficult for me. :S
