* Looking to team up with a coder to bring these superb mechs to life in MUGEN.

I did not make these sprites. I stumbled upon these 2 masterpieces in the interwebs (Tumblr?) in the past weeks:

Those are insane. Wouldn't it be easier to animate these through multiple pieces, like Phobos/Huitzil?? Either way, good luck because I personally would love to see these come alive. Your stages with these also look superb, so I hope those materialize too.

I'd easily nominate Cybaster, Cyanide, Rajaa or Kamakaze for coding. And perhaps Balthazar for spriting. :mmhmm:
All of your Mugen Portrait needs may be found HERE.

I'd like to report two robots on the MFG forums: One is EXShadow. The other is Saikoro.
There should be a Saikoro plugin for Photoshop.

Yes it would. I'm trying to figure out how to make these work.

For example, separating some areas might make it easier to have parts shake, depending on where the mechs are hit (Legs VS Head)

As you can see ^, I re-drew (kind of pretty roughly) the areas next to the shaking parts so there wouldn't be empty spaces.

Yes, they'll be largely static. A lot of TRICKS with shading, shaking and effects will be used to make these look alive :sweatdrop:

Their attacks will be mostly projectiles and weaponry. I plan to use Metal Slug's vast library for their attacks :P

What should complement these well would be some good stages, so these work well as Mugen "set pieces" or bosses. Gotta think of something that works.

I think I could take the job. I haven't coded in years, but this looks interesting.

The guy is basically retired, so that's not going to happen. I think they'd work best as like a minigame of sorts. Of course super armor would be perfect (Kamekaze has already done a wonderful armor code in his colossus) of course ray could jump around and randomly land. with maybe a shadow getting bigger to know where he's going to land.

I worked on the missing pieces. I made this process GIF for you guys ;D



I'm so excited about this project. I'll work my hardest to make it work (I'm sure I'll need some more help figuring stuff out later, though)

Yeah, we're definitely inching closer to that promised land

We already have an MGS Screenpack by BIG BOSS / GRAY FOX, Solid Snake by Sean Altly, a VR Training Stage by POTS, and a Shadow Moses Helipad stage by mh77 and yours truly so ... get on it! :P

Looking good Walt, please keep the dream alive for us all.lol Looking forward to this in action, idea for stage intro. Have Gear from Motvn winter stage eye's glow, screen turns white. Than the next scene Gear in the bg in gone. Than you hear Gear making screaming noises, and than enters to fight. I hope you can grasp what I'm trying to say. I'm tired and was half sleep, while writing this.lol

you guys can use stickman, just create the skeleton, attach the sprite pieces and animate

Will take that into consideration. Gotta try out that program to figure out how it works. Thanks for the suggestion man.

In the meantime, I did this mock up as a form of self-pleasure and hype
