Title: Capcom VS SNK Black Edition

720p Screenpack and Lifebars for MUGEN 1.1
Currently building.

Will come in 3 varieties; "Basic" which needs no editing on the characters part, "Custom" which will have custom ports and visual stage select and "Custom Advanced" which is top secret but you'll at least need a rudimentary understanding of photoshop and fighter factory to use to it's full potential.

100 slots, 10 hidden CPU slots.
This screenpack will be completely plug n' play.
PSDs will be released separately so people can edit the menu slideshow.

I assume you will try to make the portrait slideshow easily customizable like Legacy did by providing menu ports?

I have split opinion about this one - part of me likes it, how everything is placed, font, blues, and part of me dislikes grayness of it. Don't know, I'd tried placing snowy BG instead of solid gray, kinda asks for it... Either way - looks interesting :)

Double ExL's words.
A simple gray background damages the picture. But, overall, it's badass!

Post by: RagingRowen on May 17, 2019, 04:05:31 PM
I feel as if some plasma, static-ish background would be more dramatic than a snowy one, would be closer to the original themes of CVS.

The grey is just a color because I didn't want to post it transparent.

It doesn't have a bg right now.

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/268327206055444481/578913891472375809/MENU.png)
Gonna have a slideshow of Capcom/SNK characters, if you got some cool renders for this effect please share them in the thread.

I was working on the below menu screen, but I'm not feeling it, and I'm not going to use all of the parts in it. I can send you the character renders in that image in PSD format for you to do as you wish. Let me know if you wan it and I can send it over later today.

lol, can't explain it myself. I used to have a solid reason but that was a few years ago. It's just an excuse to use blacks and greys.

If you need an animated BG for the rest of your screens I may have something that can work for you. See below screenshot (Another old trashed concept), ignore everything but the Blue diamond BG in the back ground,  the Diamonds Zoom in and out individually they are looped as well. you can always recolor them to match your theme. The only downfall is that its a huge file, or you can always use one of the images as a static BG.  Let me know if you want the file. I believe I already have them in my Mediafire.

Generally, screenpacks work with mostly everything, except in  very rare circumstances (like lifebars having space to place/making room for certain character systems (P-Card system, Stand System, Burst System, Additonal Lifebars)

He is the main character after all. Moriya would have also been cool. The real crime, base form gets no love.

I guess I can release templates, the four parts of the menu (stage, character, drop shadow and name/origin) are all 1 sprite so they can be replaced. Each part is also contained to one animation, so if you want to add more than 10 characters to it, it'd be a case of cut-and-paste.

Hungry Wolf's bg animation was 450 frames, so I used every fifth frame.

I had decided on character select slot amounts a few days ago:
120 for the basic version.
80 for the custom version.
40 for the advanced version.
There will be 50 hidden cpu slots as usual for my later releases.
These numbers are final and you cannot convince me to change them, so don't even try.

If you need it to be smoother I can send you the the animation in video format and you can edit it in Adobe after effects.

I will be coming back to this, but i'll be stripping back on a lot of things.

- No more of this 3 Versions stuff, it will now be based off the "Basic Version" build only.
- There will be ~120 available character slots, with 10 hidden slots for bosses/cpu characters.
- Animations will be stripped back. I will most probably pass on using Hungry Wolf's background animation.
- Lifebars will be standard, rather than edited from add004.

Expect a character select design soon.

I don't actually know if I can pull off that team mode menu.
I will also add code into the system.def for MugenHook's sliding portrait feature. If you don't want that feature, don't install MugenHook.
Default large ports will also work with this select screen, but I recommend using custom large ports to swag out.
100 characters is a comfy amount, also 10 hidden characters.

Also, removing Hungry Wolf's anims reduced my .sff size by 66% and reduced loading time by almost 40 seconds on my laptop.

Select Screen is functionally complete:

A couple things to note:
- I fiddled around a bit with the sliding portraits and left the code in system.def commented out. It works to a degree, but I've found in multiplayer modes that the effect doesn't work in sequence (it will only work for whoever triggers it first). Again, the MugenHook thing is up to the end user but the numbers are there and correct.
- If you go the custom port route, then port size will be 640x420. The title bar takes some 85 pixels off the top. The diamonds extend out 165 pixels from the corners and are layerno=1. You don't need a template for this.

President Devon, do you still plan to put custom stage selection?
If yes, I'll go all the way custom portraits when it's released. ^^ Working on a Carnage Portrait right now. xD
Thanks for your hard work!

Amazing stuff Devon! I'm still using WWX Black and I almost hate you for making me wanna change SPs again. This one is hard to resist lol.

Will you be including the raw files upon release as well?

No. This wasn't going to be a thing in the basic build.

Amazing stuff Devon! I'm still using WWX Black and I almost hate you for making me wanna change SPs again. This one is hard to resist lol.

You mean psd files? The only psd files people would need would be if they want to edit the slideshow in the main menu. I'll probably have that as a separate download.

EDIT: Added a poll:
Second guessing the ports right now, how would you like things to go?
Title: Re: Capcom VS SNK Black Edition

full custom of course! :)
And ok for the custom stage selection, still sad. :(

The SP is too good to be left with the ugly pixelated small ports.
With some consistent art this can be an anbsolute banger on the select screen if custom ports are used.
Title: Re: Capcom VS SNK Black Edition
Post by: RagingRowen on March 07, 2020, 02:50:22 PM
Or maybe add options for both custom and default smalls?

Yeah, the PSD files. I'd love to scoop those, so that would be super awesome!

Okay, looks like we're doing standard portraits then.

Working on another project right now but should get back into it around the start of the weekend.

Same.
I used to have time for this.
But not anymore, and I prefer not to have to do it every simple time a character is updated.
I like to have both possibilities or at least JUST the regular portraits even if its more generic. ^^

Yeah and those are the people that will switch the screenpack after a week of use. I started using the legacy SP when I registered. I still  use it.
People using SP's with Custom ports then to use them far more because they invest time making the portraits.
Also again the SP is damn good looking. People have 3000 options for normal SP's Custom good ones are a rarity.

This. I don't mind making portraits as long as they aren't insanely complicated with various effects and layers and require precise positioning. I just don't have the time to sit down in PS and spend time making ports. Especially if you have a large roster with 200+ characters.

I love custom port SP's but not when they are complicated.

I'm OK making custom portraits. I don't mind the small portraits being regular boxes. Large portraits make a big difference in the overall appeal, so custom ones there would look great. The only downside of custom portraits is a lack of good artwork for obscure characters which ruins the fun of making them, sometimes.

Oh yeah, you're so right about it.
For some characters, it's even hard to find a decent artwork.

Versus screen coded.

Been pondering how I'm gonna do the victory screen. Not every character has a 9000,2 so I'll probably just do 9000,1 again.
After that will be lifebars.

EDIT: Here's the mockup for the victory screen:

Your work is amazing. I just can't stop thinking about custom portraits, for small and big..; And custom stage selection between the 2 big portraits.
You could easy have a masterpiece here, Devon. Good luck with the end of your project!

You could change the color of the background since it is always the same in title, select, versus and winner. Good luck with your project!

It's already a masterpiece. You don't need full custom ports for it to be a masterpiece. Typically if you have custom ports for small, it also usually means less slots as the ports are usually bigger.

And, not everyone has the time to make stage select ports, not to mention you are limited in how many stages you can have in that kind of setup and it's more of a hassle to set them up.

I think this is a perfect balance between normal and custom ports, while still look insanely clean and modern. It's perfect.

Re: Custom Ports
Last time I'm going to talk about this. You can modify the screenpack to have custom large ports by changing port scales to .3334, .3334, and making your own templates, it's not hard. For small ports, well you're shit out of luck, the lifebars will be using port 9000,0.

Begging me to make customs is over. We had that poll already. I was never considering stage fonts for this. As far as I'm concerned I'm only releasing .psds for the slideshow on the start menu.

Edit: which i've decided to do now.
