Damn it, I was too late to bring up another issue I found. One of Zico’s supers in the movelist has the same error as Sasuke’s - the command is listed as a kick when I believe it’s a punch.

Oh, well. I’ll download this update when I can and get back to enjoying the game. Looking forward to the DLC, but take your time on it! :)

So after mucking around in this game a bit more, I have some thoughts. Make of them what you will.

  • Comboing feels really weird to me. I confess that I’m biased and prefer a “magic series” type of game or KoF-style combos, so this probably won’t mean anything coming from me. But outside of the usual LP/LK mashing, I gravitate to Bryce and Atleif because they have the closest to a “magic series” I can reliably use through their target combos. I understand the motivation behind limiting combos like this, but I keep resorting to a character’s target combos to start a combo. Is that intentionally part of the design, or am I just playing it wrong?
  • Speaking of combo starters, jump-ins and cross-ups don’t seem to really be a thing. Characters jump so high that it’s tough to time a jump-in correctly and I struggle to start a combo that way. Maybe a KoF-esque short hop would help in that regard?
  • I feel like it’s way too easy to turtle in the game. You have the guard breaker move on Z, sure, but that costs meter, and if you don’t have any then the AI can guard all it wants. I guess the fact that meter builds quickly negates this issue (and also you can just get free meter through Bryce’s Ego Drive), but it can get really frustrating sometimes.
  • On the subject of Bryce, I vaguely remember a preview where he had a high fireball as well as a low one. What happened to that one? I also remember you were trying to code in a “custom combo” Level 3 for him - I guess that got scrapped because it was too powerful or tricky to code?
  • I really wanna play Siege but I dunno what I’m doing, help D:

If any of what I just said is off-base, I apologise - it’s midnight for me and brain no workey. Kinda wish I’d partook in the beta testing beforehand now, but oh well :P

I think there's a movelist inconsistency with Saito. One of his moves is listed as QCB2xK when it's actually QCB2xP. I tried getting it out with K multiple times before I found out it was actually P. Either the command needs changing to match the movelist or the other way around, but that really threw me.

Other than that, really enjoying the update! Did an arcade run with Bryce some time ago, and I think he, Atleif and Quavon are becoming my favourites so far.

Honestly torn between Moritz, Camila and Boyo. They're all really cool concepts and I'd love to see any one of them fleshed out more.

Also, I kinda had to stifle a laugh at El Demonico. I dig the idea of making the "Akuma" of the game a grappler instead of a shoto. Dunno how on the money I am with this interpretation, but I get the idea is that his big, scary personality is all bluff and he's really a big goofball under the mask. Can't wait to see him in action and wherever I was right or not :P

Downloading now. Honestly, this has been the only fighting game-related thing I've been looking forward to, so I'm eager to try it out! :D

UPDATE: Honestly having a blast with every character, but Bryce I just clicked with immediately. Love how he has the closest things to a "magic series" chain in the cast - makes him easy to pick up for someone like me who prefers those.

One question - I thought Elle was British? At least I remember her being referred to as such in SHADEs 3. So how come she's under the French flag here? Or have I remembered wrong all this time?

Just some small updates so people know I'm not dead.
  • I'm currently dealing with a bunch of other creative/personal commitments at the moment, as well as dealing with being back in the office. So I've had to basically put CFH on hold until they get done, or until at least I've cut down the pile to be more managable. That said, it's given me time to consider the mechanics/roster a bit more.
  • The roster, aside from about one or two gaps, is pretty much decided upon now. I'm not gonna reveal anything until later, when I can get back onto this topic. Suffice to say, it's not the most creative roster in the world, but I'll deal with complaints and make changes when I reveal it for real.
  • Hero Powers have been changed up significantly. They now work like the Magic system from Them's Fightin' Herds, with each character having unique abilities and ways to use the Hero Meter. This will be elaborated on when I return and make more headway.

Keep an eye out here, I'll post something when I get back to work on this.

Been getting into Spellbreak on XBox. Probably should play it on PC because of mouse controls but honestly I don't know if my laptop could keep up.

It's pretty good. I like how the focus isn't on guns, but on combining the different elements together and the benefits your primary element gives you. Also, the trimmed down equipment system is refreshing when most Battle Royale games swamp you in different hats, shoes, gloves etc. Currently my fave combo is Fire + Wind because flaming tornadoes, occasionally swapping wind for Earth or Poison.

Dunno how long this game's going to last, but I hope it gets some life breathed into it. The devs keep talking about adding extra modes outside of the Battle Royale stuff, so I'm curious to see where that goes.

So the best thing for me to do, it seems, would be to just develop a character, then strip them down to use as the template for future characters. Makes sense. I'll try that method and, if it works out, I'll stick with it.

Thanks :)

This might sound like a stupid question, but when people talk about making a "template" for their full games, how do they go about it? I'm trying to construct one myself, but I have a bunch of unique animations for effects in there that aren't going to carry over when I swap out SFF's and whatnot. The only other option for me is to do it by hand, but even then it would still involve importing all the sprites for the characters that I want to use, doing the alignment and animation by hand, etc. And that's a whole time-consuming process that I know can be avoided, but I don't seem to be able to.

Any advice on this matter would be much appreciated. I know that everyone is going to scream "USE KUNG FU MAN" at me, but that still doesn't solve my main problem, so anything that isn't "USE KUNG FU MAN" would be a lot more helpful in that regard.

Okay, so... huge apologies for the lack of progress to report. The fact is, I'm still feeling indecisive about some of the major mechanics for this game, as well as the roster. This isn't something I can put into a poll, so I'm just going to make an open call for advice on this one.

Also putting things in spoilers because otherwise this post is going to be huge.

Spoiler: Problem #1: Mechanics (click to see content)

Spoiler: Problem #2: Roster (click to see content)

Any amount of feedback/suggestions would be of big help to me right now. I feel like I'm so close to getting this perfect, but there's always that insidious second thought that makes me second-guess myself, and it's really starting to frustrate me.

Got some announcements to make in here:

1. I'm probably going to be ditching the concept of Rage Ultras. As much as I've wanted to include a mechanic like this. I don't really know if such a thing would fit a Capcom-stye game, especially with the other changes I'm considering making, and I don't know if I'll be able to conceptualize Rage Ultras for every character in the roster. Discuss.

2. I've decided that the fifth button will work akin to the V-Skills and V-Reversals of Street Fighter V. I'm also adding a new offensive ability to the button - a forward dash that works akin to Roman Cancels, resetting the juggle counter for the cost of one bar.

3. Got one more lifebar concept for you all.



Taking a break over Easter to try and figure out the roster and mechanics a bit more. Then, since I have the week off, I'm going to try and focus on getting the character template properly done so I can work on a character for real.

Thanks to all for the kind words. I promise to do my best and not let you all down this time :)

Also, got a new lifebar concept here. This was originally for a CvS project I was mulling over, but when I switched over to this I changed them up a bit. The CvS influence is still there, but I hope you all like my own spin on it.

Thanks for the words, Nestor! Glad to hear from you! :D

Do you know anywhere where I might be able to contact Li_Kun, if not on here? I'm still going to be helping to back the other Rouge sprites I mentioned, but if he does get Rouge finished in the near future, then I might switch to the sprites he made for them instead.

UPDATE: First post updated with new details.

I just want to clarify that the project isn't stopping. The template I'm working on is still valid for this, as it has the same base gameplay. I'll still be working on Morrigan (because frankly she's more interesting than Ryu to me right now :P) and, again, will announce her when I have something to show.

This is going to be a bit tough for me to announce. Mostly because I know there’s people on here who were looking forward to this idea. But I feel it’s something that needs to be said now or it’ll never happen.

I was talking with one of the backers of Rouge on Discord about my general worries with the Capcom Heroines project. And they said something that made sense the more I thought about it and really put everything into perspective. The fact of the matter is, a lot of my frustrations with this project come from me essentially forcing myself to do something different. The weird mechanics, the all-female roster, the odd character choices... it was all me trying to be different for the sake of it, and biting off more than I could chew as a result. New sprites, new voice acting... It was all too much. And all of it born from a desire to not be “just another MvC project”.

Also, too many waifus :P

So I’m changing things up a bit. I’m not going to stop trying to develop for MUGEN - I still want to do that. But I’m not going to do it just because I want to be different and innovative. I want to make something that I actually enjoy making. Something where I’m not stressing out over expenses for anything or making everything match up in an aesthetic sense. And while I’ll be keeping the base gameplay (with some tweaks), the focus won’t be on the all-female roster or nightmarish-to-code grooves/abilities.

Capcom Heroines is dead. Long live...



Stay tuned for further announcements.

Quick update - I'm pleased to announce that no1wammy is the major backer of making sprites for Rouge! He'll be posting progress at some point in the Sprite Projects thread, so keep an eye out for when he does!

As for progress on my end, it's... slow.  I'm back in the office, which means I've got less time to work on the template for the system. If I ever get the time to make any decent progress, I'll let you all know. Until then, stay tuned.

I just want to point out that on P1’s side of the character select screen says “Japan: Country”, “37: Age” etc, whereas it reads the correct way around on P2’s side. Is that something that’s going to be fixed later on? Because it’s really distracting me :P.

Aside from that, looking pretty dope! Hoping to see more progress soon :D

So I guess this is back. Ignore the first request, that one sucked.

What I'm actually looking for right now are Li-Kun's sprites of Morrigan on their own. I've seen them used in a bunch of characters, but I can't find them myself. If anyone has them, I'd appreciate it. Might also help to have them seperated by group, since I've got a template in the works and don't want to mess it up by just copying somebody else's .sff file.
