Just in time for Halloween... it's B.B. Hood! I've always wanted to make her, but she's gonna be pretty complex to code, so I've been putting her off until now. I've been working on her separation for months and have finally wrapped everything up. And so that means it's time for palettes!!!

B.B. Hood's palettes work a bit differently compared to everyone else; she not only has a ton colors for her own sprites, but she also has quite a few different animal friends, hunting buddies, and even a butler! Their colors couldn't all fit into a single palette, so instead I'm trying something new (for me): BBH's own colors (as well as a few small important things that I managed to fit in, like her dog and the butterflies) will have their own color table, which we will call an "A" palette. All her various helpers will get their own, separate color table, which we will call a "B" palette. For example, here are the A and B versions of the template:


The two individual A and B palette files are used to make up one specific, selectable in-game palette, with the two palettes being linked together in the sprite file and code. This might seem a bit daunting, but don't fret! There is no need to mess with the B palette if you don't want to. If you just submit an A palette, I'll just associate it with the Default B palette (or you can just ask to associate it with another, existing B palette, I guess!). The B palette is just to allow people the option of messing with colors that would otherwise be unshared and unchangeable.

So, like, anyone else here in the forum working on their GBWC entry? Or at least any model kit? lol

Currently working on mine; it's a Bandai RE/100 Jagd Doga, but I've customized it to be more reminiscent of Mamoru Nagano's mechanical aesthetics. He's the guy that made Five Star Stories, co-designed Heavy Metal L-Gaim, and also designed a few Gundam suits, though most of them went uncredited.
Cool!

Another thing I would say is worth considering is the fact that while both of them have access to superhuman levels of strength, Bucky's is innate and permanent while Jason's is a short burst from a drug.  So unless the Venom gave him enough of a boost to overwhelmingly outclass the Infinity Formula (which it doesn't), or his training was significantly higher than Bucky's to be able to end the fight instantly if given a slight strength advantage (which it isn't) then Jason really wouldn't be able to stand up to Bucky in the long run.
I guess it's technically correct but I found it really weird that they were talking about the Infinity Formula as giving Bucky abilities beyond a normal human. Like sure I guess the accelerated healing and shit is true, but otherwise, all the Infinity Formula is supposed to do is make you immortal. Several characters that have it, like Nick Fury Sr. and Black Widow, are definitely just regular humans. Bucky is treated the same way: he's not at all a match for Captain America's enhanced physique—although interestingly enough, Captain America is also considered in large part to not be super-powered either: he's definitely capable of feats of strength, agility, and speed that would be impossible to even the greatest of athletes, but that's all stuff the human body is theoretically capable of; if someone strictly followed a perfect diet and workout regiment for their entire lives, starting from their birth, they'd be capable of the same stuff, it's just the Super-Soldier serum can give anyone that body instantly, even a 90 pound weakling like Steve used to be!

No, Bucky's real dominating factor here, and the reason why he could keep up with Captain America when he was still brainwashed, is that metal arm. The super strength it provides him helped ensure that when he became Captain America after Steve died, there wasn't a "downgrade", so to speak, in terms of superheroic combat ability. And it's that metal arm that gives him such an advantage over Jason, even if Jason's taken a dose of venom; while venom might theoretically give Jason the edge in strength (I'm honestly not sure that it would, I feel like they'd be evenly matched at best), Bucky's arm isn't a temporary boost, nor does it have all the deleterious effects that venom has on the people who take it.

That's the Inverse Ninja Law in action; one assassin is an elite and powerful adversary.  A group of assassins are easily dispatched cannon fodder.
Exactly; this is just the inverse ninja law, but applied to training. Jason didn't get any special training from any named League characters. Which is nothing special nor very persuasive in an argument for who would win in a fight, again because a horde of ninjas are jobbers, and thus also a horde of ninjas training Jason Todd isn't gonna help him improve over any of the training he already had from Batman.

But this has been changed, post New 52, apparently. Now he has received training from both Lady Shiva and Bronze Tiger while he was under the care of the League of Assassins, which is incredibly stupid and dumb—both characters had associations with the League, but neither one has ever been a willing full time member (Shiva was briefly associated with them in her youth, long before she became a professional assassin and master of martial arts; Bronze Tiger was kidnapped and brainwashed by the League for a period of time, and then subsequently freed); perhaps their tenures are yet another shitty change made by the New 52—but ultimately it's quite different from Jason being trained by a bunch of nobodies. Lady Shiva and Bronze Tiger are among the best martial artists in all of DC (Lady Shiva is probably the absolute number one, and Bronze Tiger is arguably better than Batman), and I'd feel comfortable saying that this training would be better than the stuff he learned from Batman (but then again, maybe Shiva and Tiger are no longer as good as they were before the New 52, I certainly don't know!).

... although, all this Lady Shiva and Bronze Tiger shit was written by absolute massive piece of shit and serial sexual harasser Scott Lobdell, so fuck it, we don't have to consider any of it. Dude just finished his 9 year run/stranglehold on Jason Todd, where he wrote Jason as an author avatar who was constantly shown to be the most badass cool guy with all the coolest shit, and it's this run where most of his big impressive training, weapons and other equipment, and feats come from that were cited by Death Battle. So yeah, fuck all that shit Bucky should've killed him harder.

Also I won't claim to know the ins and outs of all D.C. and Marvel organizations, but literally the Best of the Best humanity has to offer League of Assassins seems to me a fair bit higher on the totem pole of teachers than WWII slugfests and questionably effective brainwashing.
It's not just that. The video neglects to mention this (which is understandable, these episodes are overly long as it is), but Bucky was essentially raised on an Army Base after being orphaned, and from a pretty early age was learning all the basics that the soldiers being trained there were learning. He had such a natural aptitude to it that the higher ups noticed, and that's why they fast tracked him to getting training from a variety of different sources, like the British SAS (and many others, unmentioned by the video). By the time he was done, he was an absolute expert soldier and combatant, and that's why he was recruited to be Captain America's sidekick. The basic idea was that Bucky would serve two purposes: he'd be the squeaky clean smiling kid sidekick of Captain America in public, but out in the field, he'd be a merciless black ops soldier who'd sneak behind enemy lines, and would quickly and silently take out enemy soldiers while Captain America led the charge on the front lines (which also preserved Cap's image as a propaganda tool—distancing himself from the wetwork Bucky was doing while also placing Cap in a very visible role that could raise the morale of everyone around him). Death Battle uses panels from and references exclusively the Golden Age version of Bucky's recruitment, which has since been supplanted by the later one that Ed Brubaker developed in the same story that brought Bucky back as the Winter Soldier. The Golden Age origin was recontextualized into the "official" origin story for Bucky that the government promoted for propaganda purposes during WWII, much in the same way as the Golden Age Captain America comics themselves are in-universe pieces of propaganda that aren't the actual full truth of what Captain America was up to back in WWII (though they are somewhat inspired by the "real adventures"; essentially allowing creators to use stuff from those stories if they'd like, but also give them the freedom to disregard those old stories entirely).

As an aside, that that backstory revision I just described would ordinarily make me roll my eyes and stop reading. Both of those ideas, of Bucky really being a black ops soldier disguised as a friendly kid sidekick, and bringing him back 40 years after he was unceremoniously killed off by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee—as an edgy brainwashed assassin with a metal arm, no less!—are both ideas that simply shouldn't work, ideas that if they appeared in almost any other context would be awful, a symptom of everything wrong with superhero comics. And yet... Brubaker makes it all work. That Captain America run is just too damn good; it's easily the best Captain America run of this century, and stands alongside all the other standout runs on the character.

Anyways, I wouldn't put much stock into the League of Assassins training stuff; every member of the Bat-family can beat up League of Assassins goons by the dozen (I certainly wouldn't describe them as the best of humanity at all, even among the non-henchmen types; not even R'as himself really qualifies); Jason Todd's training from Batman is far more relevant here. Which is honestly more than sufficient for this match-up! Batman's definitely more skilled, has more training, and is probably the better fighter (technically speaking) between him and Captain America. For that reason, I can totally buy that Jason has had overall better training/mastery of martial arts over Bucky, even if Bucky has waaaaaaaaaaaaay more experience overall and had a good deal more training. It also really should be noted that Captain America himself is no slouch: he's an insanely talented fighter who's received a lot of training, and has trained most Avengers (including Bucky himself) in hand-to-hand combat; in comics, "trained by Captain America" is shorthand for "is one of the best fighters in the world", and to defeat them in single combat you have to be a character who's like, whole gimmick is insane levels of martial arts mastery (i.e., Shang-Chi should absolutely demolish Hawkeye in a purely hand-to-hand fight, but Hawkeye should be evenly matched with say, Bullseye, again in a strictly hand-to-hand fight).

I think the best way to look at this fight is to examine it using the Batman/Captain America fight from JLA/Avengers, which is officially in continuity for both publishers (or was, at least, for DC, until the New 52... but maybe now it's back in continuity! Who knows! DC sure doesn't!). Those two fought briefly in it, and seemed pretty evenly matched; however, Batman noted that he suspected that the fight would go on for quite a long time, and that he could tell that Captain America's slightly beyond peak human physiology would probably give him the edge in the end (right after he said this, both he and Cap admitted to each other that they thought they were being manipulated to fight by the forces that brought them together and mutually agreed to stop fighting). And this was coming from early 2000s "Batgod" JLA-ass Batman, who'd be loath to admit he was anything other than the most perfect being on the planet! And that's a very fair take on such a match-up, one that I agree with: Batman has the edge when it comes to pure skill and quality of martial arts training, but Captain America is close behind him, and his enhanced physiology not only cancels out Batman's edge in skill, but it will ultimately see him the victor in a prolonged fight. Almost the same exact setup is here with Bucky and Jason: Jason probably has the slight edge when it comes to training, but Bucky's metal arm is just an such an overwhelming might that Jason's slight superiority in martial arts won't do him much good against.

The thing that makes Watchmen different is that its heroes all do have pretty strong moral codes, with very few exceptions—the Comedian is a nihilist who believes in nothing, only seeking to cause violence, and Dr. Manhattan's whole deal is of course that he has absolutely zero agency and sees no real value in human life ("A live body and a dead body contain the same number of particles. Structurally, there's no discernible difference. Life and death are unquantifiable abstracts. Why should I be concerned?"), though he reverses the latter position over the course of the story. The more normal people (relatively speaking, since they're all immensely screwed up to be running around in costumes and beating people up), such as Nite Owl and Silk Spectre, all have their various foibles but by and large have moral codes that most people would align with.

Instead, it is the two people with the strongly held moral codes, Rorschach and Ozymandias, that reveal some of the major points of horror in Watchmen: both of these masked vigilantes have extremely strong codes of ethics that they follow, but these codes both lead them to commit horrific acts of violence. It's all well and good to follow a code of ethics, but superheroes, by their most fundamental nature, go out and enforce their ethical code onto others. And so you have Rorschach—a deranged bigot, lover of the most absurd conspiracy theories, and arch-Randian—who sees everything in pure black and white, out roaming the streets delivering his vision of justice onto anyone unfortunate to run into him. On the other hand, there's Ozymandias, whose goals are all extremely noble: he wants to prevent the extinction of humanity from the ever-growing threat of nuclear war. He truly and deeply wants to literally save the world... and of course, he does this through the murder of millions of people.

Man you are wrong on so many levels its unbelievable. The Boys is Garth Ennis deconstruction of the superhero genre, in which he openly mocks the cynical commercialization of superheros and the comic book industry to a degree.
I dunno, I think The Boys comic is complete fucking dogshit. It's not a particularly interesting or compelling deconstruction, it doesn't really bring anything new to the table, and it's just so up its own ass that I couldn't bring myself to watch the TV show at all, despite hearing fairly good things about it. That's how unpleasant reading the comic was to me. Like I get it Garth Ennis, you really fucking hate superheroes (except Superman), great! Then stop fucking writing about them if you don't have anything interesting to say about them!

The Boys is really not a fair comparison to Watchmen, which was genuinely groundbreaking, and is a technical marvel; the mastery Moore and Gibbons had in their storytelling is evident in every single panel. Like the plot or not, but the plot is merely one aspect to the book as a whole. The Boys, meanwhile, is just a fairly average 2000s comic in terms of its construction; not only did it not totally reshape all comics made after it like Watchmen did, it came and went without a ton of fanfare. Like it was popular enough to get a TV show, obviously, but so have a lot of other things from that era. It was just another comic book. Watchmen... is Watchmen.

... why did you lock this topic? The ordinary procedure for necroposts is to delete them and send a PM (and thus undo the damage they cause), not leaving them up but shutting the topic down entirely. There's no point in locking the topic because it'll just prevent anyone but a moderator from unlocking or replying to this topic on the off chance there is actual news about Elecbyte.

Beyond that, necro posts don't actually matter outside of the MUGEN release and project sections, and no action should be taken on them outside of those sections (outside of rare occasions). This particular necro post isn't hurting anyone, it's not pushing down newer topics from the first page of this sub-board, it's all fine and should be left up.

Why all this fighting?

I'm not that active lately, so I don't know which sprites are those which needs a touch. Can u show them, please? I may take a fix if needed.
It's just the Midnight Bliss sprites:

the patch you provided for Victorys Sean doesnt work

That's odd, because I haven't made any modifications at all to Special.st; the patch should only have new versions of Animation.air and System.st; maybe try redownloading the original character again, then applying a fresh copy of the patch?

2003 Teen Titans had some extremely weird rules about what they could and couldn't use; one aspect of which is the uncertainty about who the Robin is in the series. They could only hint at it with things like the weird Bat-Mite esque stand-in, or recreating the iconic "Robin swears an oath to fight crime" thing from Robin's Golden Age origin, except they had to crop the scene to hide Batman because they weren't allowed to show him or reference him at all directly.

Even still, I remember back in the grand old days when message boards were huge, there were still a lot of arguments about whether the Robin was Dick or Tim (or possibly even Jason somehow), even with all those minor references. It would've been so much easier if they were allowed to just actually say any of this stuff in the show! The DCAU ran into the same kinds of issues too, the infamous Bat-embargo caused them to be unable to reference anything relating to Batman (outside of Batman himself, cuz he was grandfathered into the show), which led to an episode about Barbara Gordon retiring and becoming Oracle getting scrapped, as well as them not being able to include any Batman villains in the Legion of Doom.

I thought the general consensus was that the 2003 Teen Titans were at one early point considered to be an extension of the DCAU, via Static Shock's crossover with Batman also referencing them in a future crossover that disappointingly never happened, but the extremity of the style differences (And I guess conflicting threats; if we're gonna assume the Teen Titans show took place in the DCAU, then how did no one notice Trigon at ALL?  Plus some other much more minor nitpicks but still obstacles like Vandal Savage being immortal and indestructible yet still would be among the dead?) had them back away from it and let it be its own thing.
There was a Teen Titans show in development from the DCAU crew in the late 90s (specifically focused on the OG crew of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl, and Speedy), but it was shelved early on in development in favor of Batman Beyond. Nevertheless, that might be the specific version of the Titans they were referencing in Static Shock; after all, they're specifically only referred to as "the Titans", which implies they've dropped the "Teen" from their name (much in the same way that The New Teen Titans suddenly became The New Titans once most of the characters could no longer convincingly be called teenagers, though of course the "New" Titans had started off pretty old for teens to begin with!)

How "We make up our own rules" does the Speed Force and/or other "Forces" Wally gets reach?  I mildly recall in I think the Rebirth reboot with Hawkgirl beating in Lex Luthor's skull and everyone on the planet turned to fish, Wally's Still Force....reversed that or something?  Because sure, total lack of motion reverses magic.
The Speed Force can do whatever is needed for the plot, and that's about the only rule there is.

I'm getting my Flashes mixed up with Injustice. I haven't watched the animated Justice League in a long time, and I assumed it was Barry in that, and I thought Wally was the one with the weird hair sticking out from where the mask should be. I believe that was Kid Flash, right?
In the comics, Wally West was once Kid Flash, Barry Allen's sidekick. Then he grew up and Barry died and Wally took over the legacy.

In the DCAU, the Flash that appears in Justice League is Wally, with no direct references to there being another one before him. But there's some small references that could support that argument: there is a Kid Flash costume in the background of the Flash Museum in one episode, and there's the Titans of it all, which is its own bag of worms.

The Titans get directly referenced in Static Shock, so a team by that name definitely exists in the DCAU, and Speedy (Green Arrow's sidekick) shows up in one episode of JLU, with the same voice actor and general design as the Speedy in the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon (but the JLU looks older; no longer a teen, but a full grown adult). And guess who also showed up in the 2003 Teen Titans? The Wally West version of Kid Flash, voiced by the same VA as the Flash in Justice League (and given that the cartoon also features a Robin who is probably Dick Grayson, the timing would all work out; TT03 would have to be set years and years before Justice League, because Dick Grayson had already grown up and become Nightwing by the time the League is formed)!

But that does not necessarily mean that the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon is set in the DCAU; for one thing, it's by a completely different creative team, with wildly different tones, designs, and approaches. Indeed, I don't think there's many people out there who include the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon as a DCAU show; no serious retrospective of the DCAU covers TT03, etc. And so there's not really a strong argument that the Speedy and Kid Flash appearances are anything more than fun nods to the other respective show. At most, one can say that there's a team known as Titans in the DCAU, and it potentially had Speedy and a Kid Flash in it at some point, and that Kid Flash might've been Wally West.

... except there are also references to Wally West getting his powers as an adult, and his backstory seems like a combination of Wally West and Barry Allen: he has Wally's appearance and personality, but he has the same job as Barry and seemed to get his powers in the same way as Barry does (of course, Wally got his powers in the comics in a freak accident that exactly duplicated the circumstances that gave Barry his powers, so maybe that doesn't mean much). Similarly, in the Green Lantern episode of Superman, Kyle Rayner was given traits of both Kyle from the comics and the Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. So Wally might be the same way; the character itself is unquestionably Wally West, but has enough backstory elements from another character that make their comics history not applicable in certain aspects to the DCAU version.

I have no idea on Archie's version of Sonic other than the first Mario vs Sonic fight. They're using Wally West instead of Barry Allen this time, I guess because of his cocky attitude.
I suspect they're specifically doing a Wally vs. Sonic fight because they've already raced against each other before:

Well, not Sonic exactly, but clearly meant to be an analogue of Sonic

This is Krakkl, Wally West's imaginary friend, who he used to communicate with over a radio. Except, turns out, he wasn't imaginary. He was real all along! He and his species are literally made of radio waves and is from a pocket dimension known as Kwyzz.

Sadly, Krakkl sacrificed himself in order to give Wally West a speed boost to save both their worlds from the villains who were making Wally and Krakkl race against one another.

And their clips are kind of messed up, since I thought Barry was one of them in that preview (the one that does the around the world part where he destroys Lex Luthor's Brainiac armor with full speed and dies, then comes back in the Justice League.)
Nah, that's Wally West, he's the one and only Flash in the DCAU. You can tell because he has an actual personality!

At least, a personality that's original, and not shamelessly stolen from your former sidekick who replaced you, yes I'm talking to you, Barry Allen, you had nothing to go on for years after you came back, so they resorted to stealing shit from Wally to make you even slightly interesting. Fucker should've stayed dead. >:[

That Suicide Squad game trailer was fucking awful IMO: they showed absolutely no gameplay; the designs are all absurdly derivative of the already awful 1st movie designs (especially poor Harley, but she's no stranger to having people making her wear the worst fucking outfits because god forbid she wear her real costume); everyone uses guns, and almost exclusively guns (including King Shark, a dude with super-strength and super-durability, as well as Captain Boomerang, the dude whose entire fucking deal is that he uses special gimmick boomerangs, and only uses boomerangs because it's literally his fucking name?!?!?!?!); and worst of all, the game is centered around another fucking "what if Superman... turned evil???" plotlines.

Also fuck Rocksteady, they've fostered a hostile work environment for all the women that work there and have done absolutely nothing to address it.
