This is pretty useful tag-theory stuff. You may want to add it. It all is pretty related in content.

Actually, I find it strange that stickied tutorials aren't listed as recommended threads, right? o_O

The topic I listed seems to fit more into this list than any other sticky there, though, considering it lists a ton of med-to-advanced stuff.

gonna bump this up to say that for the ideas on CLSNs in those old threads, dear god do not listen to a single damn word I said because I was wrong back then

my advice: study CLSNs from KoF and Capcom games. BlazBlue is a terrible example because they look like auto-CLSN, completely ignore those.

In fact, my advice for anything is to study actual games. This is 2011. We have ArtMoney tables flying all over the place. You really have no excuse at this point, so study, think about what's happening, THEN ask questions to confirm your suspicions.

With regards to sprites (because some people STILL MANAGE TO GET THIS WRONG):
For uncropped rips: add the first sprite, align it to where the axis is proper. If you cannot tell where the axis is in-game because there is no way to look at it, then use the mirror test. The way you go about this is you have the character turn in-game (MAKE SURE THE CAMERA DOES NOT MOVE TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT, SO DO THIS IN A CORNER FOR BEST RESULTS), and then you keep re-positioning the axis until the turning sprite mirrors EXACTLY as it does in-game.

DO NOT CROP THE SPRITE YET AT THIS POINT. Note down the axis, and add ALL OTHER sprites at that same axis. If your axis is 320,384, THEN YOU MUST ADD ALL OTHER SPRITES AT THE AXIS OF 320,384 UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED (such as portions where the sprites would normally have been cut off).

This is 2011, you have no excuse to misalign an SFF for ANY reason, period.

Not a thread, but a nice resource (Japanese) for some MUGEN file formats. Even contains some code samples!
