Sorry, I had not expressed well my request. I am not talking about mugenguild forum, but mugenguild database. So it is something that I think I can not edit myself, but I assume it can be only edited by mugenguild administrator:

This place: https://network.mugenguild.com/guild/start.html

Here if you see a character I made, my nickname will link to mugenation, which is something I'd like will be removed forever.
As I sald THAT link could be replaced, if you want, with mugenguild site (if you want to host my creations) or removed completely without a replacement.

Both solution are fine for me, but my creations have not an official site anymore. So you can host them directly if you want (and if you have a copy of them... I probably don't have any backup of my mugen creations).

Thank for your time.

Hi. I'm Nobun.
I'd like to ask only a favour. I see that my nickname is still associated to mugenation (it links to that site), which is no more true since 2004-2005, more or less (don't remember when I quit from mugenation, for several reasons).
This is even more true now, that is a fake site.

If you want you can host directly all my creations, since all my creations are free-to-host to everyone (and also free-to-mod). You can also associate my nickname to mugenguild, if you like, and replace the link from mugenation to mugenguild. Or, simply remove the Nobun -> link to mugenation without replacement. Both solutions are fine for me, so you can choose the option you like more.

The most important thing, to me, is to see the removal of mugenation link from my nickname.
Thank you very much, in advance

@Byakko... yes I didn't consider that scenario. You are right.

@President Devon
I didn't know that the user could have a bad attitude. However, since I am retired from mugen there isn't anything I can actually anymore do, except for replying a question (like that) I still (more or less) remember.

Thank a lot for your replies :)

Any palette, in SFFv2 format, are stored with a couple of values (group, number) like sprites.
Group 1 palettes are the "main" palettes for the characters (1,1 to 1,x), containing all possible colors that the character will have, depending of wich button you pressed in game.
So using palette 1,1 - as suggested - will apply the default "main" palette 1. (I say "main" palette becouse it is possibile that some images will have a completely different palette, wich will never change. For example big portrait will have its own unique palette and it is usually stored as palette 2,1)

Since I am out from mugen world now, I never expected I could receive a PM.
It is a two-years old question I received, but I saw it only now.
I highly doubt that the guy could still need an answer to that question (two years passed, after all), however I wanted to leave him a way to contact me if he, for any reason, still requires that informations.

When I tried to send reply to his PM, the forum board will show again my PM message "removing" the username from field where you specify the person who will receive the PM. I don't understand if it is a problem of my browser or if the user is not anymore registered here.

I think he mean a plugin system in order to apply dinamicly any changes required. If so... I am very very impressed. I implemented a similar idea into NOMEN, but limited to sff management (Sff plugin system) but it is not a "real" plugin system (becouse all modules must be included as real modules of the program, even if the system is flexible).

So again... very congratulation

NOTE: As far as I know FF is developed using Qt... this mean that also some java usage is possible. I am not able to use this kind of feature and I cannot exclude that FF will use it instead. However it seems to me that VirtuallTek not intendet to say he is using also Java, but seems to me he wanted to say that he was able to encode a very flexible system that works with a plugin logic (very impressive, as I said before  :sugoi:)

Re: N.O.M.E.N. (mugen editor)

uhm... hard to reply in an absolute way... I am trying to explain the current situation about Sffv1 management (hoping this will answer your question).

In general Nomen tries to decode SffV1 in the most accurate way possible, trying to automaticly distringuish from Char-Sff and No-Char-Sff (like, for example fightfx.sff).

In this way Nomen can decode correctly both a fightfx.sff (unlike mee and mcm that usually have some problems on decoding those type of sff), a sff of a stage (or screenpack or fight bar) AND a sff of a character.

This is almost true, but there are some exceptions on char-sffs (sffv1).

1) There are extremely rare case (like a Dracula character reported to me by serio) that I found it is absolutely impossible to decode correctly in an ordinary way. This why a separated program (called "tricky sffv1 parser") is provided for those extremely rare cases. It is not a confortable program to use, but it should be very uncommon you really need it.
(in those exceptional case there are no other tools able to decode this type of sff correctly, including the amazing SffExtract, but it is not a fault of the other tools, it is related of the heavely strange way to memorize the sff.... until now only 1 character seems to have this problem)

2) There are more common cases where a character can be appear "weird" at start but that could be esasily fixable (I am working around this issue in order to improve it) -> so you can use Nomen directly without using the unconfortable "Tricky Sffv1 Parser"

------------
Speaking about 2nd case:

this happens when (rarely) a char doesn't have an individual 0,x image nor an individual 9000,0 image.
In this case the char can be loaded with some or a lot weird image. But those images can be fixed replacing palette values loading the original ACT file of the char (this happen becouse a wrong assignment of palette 1,1... I have an idea how to solve this thing and probably this will be "fixed" in version 0.1.2 - I don't know when it will come out).

in this case you have only to check what image(s) currently use palette 1,1 and temporary extract them
then delete them from sff
then change palette 1,1 loading an ACT file of the char
then finally re-add the image(s) you deleted before (loading them from extract snapshot directory)

(in the next 0.1.2 release, Nomen - when encountering this particular case - will ask you, before showing you the result, to select an ACT from the original char directory... but only in this case... in the remaining case the automated system will work correctly).

-------------------

however... if the sff appear "correctly" there should be no problem on saving in Sffv2 format (default) or Sffv1 format.
This also becouse, if you decide to save in Sffv1 format, Nomen will force a defined order of images in order to prevent reading problems (or bettere following a rule... except some rules, the rest of the images will be saved in the order decided by the user).
As serio reported this feature could be not so good if you are looking for a "more oriented user-made customization" (while Nomen tries to focus on semplicity trying to avoid that the final users need to know some complex "rules").
So, for example, the image 9000,0 will be saved as a first image (if you save in SffV1 format) regardless of the actual position in your Sff editing. (you will note it when trying to reload the saved sff).

This is instead not true in Sffv2 that doesn't need any "special rule" about image ordering (so when saving Sffv2 it will preserved the order you decided).

A final note: I cannot ensure how Nomen could react if you try to add an RGB image... it could crash or could behave in a strange way...... never tested. For the moment Mugen 1.1 is not supported and it is not a priority (also becouse it is still an alpha release and doesn't seem to be released quickly)

----

I hope I could answer completely to your question. If something is not clear, you can ask and I will try to be clearer.

For the moment it is developed only in English, but it is structured in order to have translations in a future.
But in this early stage I think it is too early to think about multi-language translations (seeing the fact a lot of things need to be developed). However I am open also on observations about this point

The real utility, for the moment (until FF3 will not out) is that Nomen supports both Sffv1 and Sffv2 and allow you to convert both Sffv1 in Sffv2 and vice-versa (currently Nomen can edit only Sff....

Hi. As you probably know I am developing another mugen editing tool (inspired to mee) named NOMEN. This tool is more intendent as personal fun for myself and it is not a sign of rivality against Fighter Factory that is a very great tool made by professional people (also I want to remark that they are professional and skilled programmers, while I am a "fun" programmer so I cannot ensure that type of knowledge they have). So I will expect no one try to create a war (I am a fun myself of Fighter Factory and I appreciate so much the work around it and the people who work around it...).

After saying this preface I'd like to explain the reasons of this topic:

- Is it true that project development is (more or less) always blocked due to my personal problems and it is true I'd like to remain the only one developer of it (for a lot of reasons... I don't want to bother you), but I'd like to have some feedbacksb becouse I have no intention to completely abandone this work. Until now (also in elecbyte forum) I received almost no feedbacks nor opinions (except some very interesting points said by serio, who is credited for his contributions and serious beta-testing for the current release 0.1.1).
For example no bugs reported (except those ones I reported myself) and no points about usage and feeling (or other similar points

- I am currently still searching a volunteer for Mac Os X packaging (I have no a mac)... some times ago a person kindly contacted me but he didn't reply to my mail (where I reported him the global situation in order to give him all informations he need to decide if truely wants to help me or not)

- And perhaps other things I may forgotten.

I feel sorry if my answers can be slow, but I will read all things anyone wants to write. Thank to anyone that wants to contribute in any way.

For those ones who doesn't know it, I write the homepage of Nomen Project

http://nomeneditor.sourceforge.net

(I will omit the official Nomen Forum becouse it is an italian forum that treats about Mugen and I don't want to make an "unpolite" thing writing it here)

Check into the original elecbyte screenpack for the name of the section and its parameter if not present in your current screenpack.

I am not sure about the music in continue screen (I am away from mugen programming by a lot of years) however there is a section or a command for continue screen. I don't remember if it include the chance to add a music or not. At a first time (when I replied) I thinked there was that chance but now I am not sure about it (I haven't mugen with me nor docs so I cannot verify by myself)

Actually is not impossible, but can create problems.
I will try to explain.

If you are thinking to show the victory screen of the opponent when you lose match -> it is possible and will be not a problem. I don't know how the "victory screen" works in Mugen, however it will be possible thoughout CNS (I have to retrieve the mugen docs to find exactly the trigger I am thinking to). Simply you can make an explod that fills the screen after the victory animation ends, than activate 2 AssertSpecials (roundnotover and nomusic) during the time needed to show the victory quote. You need the assertspecial nomusic in order to deactivate stage music. You can also add a music effect to victory quote adding a PlaySnd (if sound inserted in character SND file)

If you are thinking to show the victory screen (or lose screen) of the character that losts -> even if could be possible (it is the same like before, except for the trigger) I highly suggest to DON'T do it. This becouse it can conflicts with other "victory quote" codes in other character. I am not sure about it but it seems to be better to don't code it.

-----

2) the continue screen can play a music. You must set it in the screenpack code (system.def)

QT linguist is included also in QT "library" packages (in all packages so also MAC one should contain it) so it is no necessary do download the entire sdk (that includes also compiling tools).

However nice choice to use Qt also for Fighter Factory.

For those one not confortable to Qt linguist... It is a very easy tool to be used... it is, more or less, like any other translation tools (like poedit) and the logic is the same. Is very intuitive so if you translators find problems don't be afraid becouse it is nothing difficult at all.

(I cannot help with translations becouse I am Italian and Italian translation is still done :) )

Nice to know that FF3 will be released soon...

I think that anyone have his own preferences.
For example, when I created my chars, I worked with BMP too (for various reasons) but then I converted them in Pcx becouse I used sprmaker to create the definitive sff
I don't use neither IrfanView nor Gimp or oter known software, however Gimp and IrfanView are two very good programs to have.

Another program you can use is made by me and it is called All Bitmap 2.0
That program is usefull if you want to convert a list of BMP / PCX images to a 256-color images and if you want that all the resulted image will use a particular palette setting decided by you.

For example you created a .pal file with your definitive palette setting and you want to apply that palette to all your images (RGB or even 256-colors images with different palette setting) All Bitmap is usefull.

Can convert: PCX / BMP images (RGB and 256-colors) to 256-colors PCX or 256-colors BMP
Images will use palette setting you decided to use as param (AllBmp can load param palette from a .pal file or photoshop .act or .act file without color inversion)
Program will not touch original images, but will save the converted images as new file into a folder decided by user

More details, if someone is interested at it, can be found in the page I linked before.

I reply only to remember that move* triggers are NO MORE boolean in WinMugen/LinuxMugen

so

trigger = MoveHit

is true ONLY in the exact tick (1/60 of second) the char hits someone. The tick after is false (at 1st tick returns 1, at 2nd tick returns 2, and so on...)

trigger = MoveHit

is equal to

trigger = MoveHit = 1

There are some people that marks some subliminal message with the world "sex" in the disney anime. Most of those reports, in my opinion, are fakes (you must have a very huge fantasy to see it). Some others, instead, seems more clear (I never noted anithing of it by myself).
I don't know if it is a true thing or not, but I think that anyone have the right to explain it's opinion, regardless of "popularity".
