all others are getting revised sprites that i have done and some have. As well i have done 2 unlockable characters not shown and will only show the ones that will be in the project in gameplay video as they are getting done. The gameplay video i had planned for in the new years eve but with everyone on other projects and real life might get pushed back. the gameplay video plan is to show 5 to 7 characters in a very cool Crom style gameplay video. sooner things pickup and done the sooner that video will be shown.
The full ABR Gameplay Template is getting done and will be dished off to those that are helping code certain characters for the closed project to keep in que with how to code certain movesets and characters.
Who and whats needed:
Stage creator helps - anyone that can help create stages and keep them in synch with whats going on with the project in looks and replicate as best as possible stages that coincide with specific characters animes via location or major fight locations.
Spriters_ we have cool spriters in the crew and if they want to help out and have time aside they own projects or finished their projects are welcome aboard the ABR train...lol. just have to keep in mind the spriting style , the looks of the characters as best as can and updated as much to closeness as possible..take your time! there is no rush, i rather they get good to great in their looks. the closer the better.
Storyboards - mostly saving those for last to get done. The main game storyboard will be the first to get done , it will que in after you selected your character to play through the game and another before your match with the final boss. note: certain characters has intros with other certain characters wether from same anime and some not. ( example ( Terry vs Adam Blade Terry vs Jamin or Terry vs Elle Ragu, Vampire Hunter D and a certain unlockable character, Bushido Brown and Afro Samurai , Afro samurai vs Jubei from Ninja scroll, Lina vs Zuma and Lina vs Naga, Vash Vs Spike, Kenichi vs unlockable Rock Lee...and there are many more.
Lifebar and SP portraits - these portraits are both the small ones and the Large ports used for character selecvtion screen , versus screen and the lifebars. they are in MBAA style. high quality pics will be used as seen in the screencaps of the SP of the test characters old and new.
Note to everyone working on the project old and new. : there will be NO releasing anything public.. this is a locked closed game till sometime after the release of the full game. Anything made for the project in use will be locked within the game and cannot be released to the public. there are no permissions to do so as well. We have some testers already that have been selected and are supremely trustworthy to not release our works. any sending of any material for the project i say best to do it here through PMs only. if anyone wants to know who are the testers to have their material tested to see if its working just hit me up and i will point you to the person to handle that and give feedback to you if needed. I also suggest that anyone making characters or stages to please test your material yourself first to see if its working in your version of the engine your using. ours is 1.0 of the SP so i suggest testing any creations in 1.0 before dishing it off to be thoroughly tested for bugs that you didnt catch. the more errors and bugs caught by both the better the quality. SO what you didnt catch , it will hopefully be caught by the tester. helps decrease the workload. any questions just direct them to me or Shadaloo and we will do our best to try to see whats needed in help as best as we can.
so there has been i think enough sprite showing from me and others so far and work will be picking up. I am showing the wips i will do for the project in screenshots and video's since i have several already prepped and running in mugen.
