    Firstly, PS3 and Xbox say hi.
    Secondly, they're 8-bit style, which makes them a good fit.

    To elaborate on Mario-Fan, Bass's MM10 sprites were made to be 8-bit esque, which makes them perfect for an 8-bitesque game.

    As for Paper Mario, I'm pretty certain that it either a) uses very flat models or b)uses sprites that are rotated and whatnot, making them NOTHING like the sprites present in older games.

    Ducktales Remastered isn't going to be a suitable source for graphics, is all I'm saying.

    The original Paper Mario (N64) uses normal sprites. All subsequent PM games use flat models.

    As for DuckTales: Remastered, style aside, the sprites are way too big for SMBC.

    Unfortunately as much as I would like Scrooge to be in too with him being owned by Disney it would be pretty likely that they might be annoyed about us having him in, especially with the announcement of the new game. It just seems a lot more likely that Disney would do something about us using him over a game company talking to us about their old games.

    Disney is a dick.

    That's all there is to copyright infringement.

    So? How do you explain this message from the start of the game

    C&D of fangames don't take into consideration that kind of thing and think more about how they want to keep all the stuffs for themselves.
    Of course they could try out and see how Disney takes it, but if they want to C&D, then it could turn out badly.

    Yea movie companies also are more likely to C&D a fangame anyways at least I would think. But I could be wrong.

    Unfortunately just having that in the game doesn't help to protect us, there's a lot of other people who have been shutdown even after having disclaimers like that. :(

    It's Disney we're talking about. If you draw Cinderella in a wall they will C&D the wall. That's who they are.

    If it only was Sega, they're a much nicer company. There was this guy, he wrote a Genesis emulator for the NDS... Sega contacted him. They hired him to lead a dev team, and produced a Sonic collection cartridge. He's probably still working there by now.

    But Disney is a movie and animation company, they're not into software development at all, and there are just too much cases of instant C&D to ignore it. They're very strict with ROMS too. Want to play that epic Genesis Mickey game? That's too bad, they might want to reboot their ass-old games in the distant future so sorry, you can't have that ROM.

    So no, no dolan duk & firends.

    Besides, I'd prefer characters that originated from another form of media not be used for original characters. Skins are a different story, of course.

    Like I said, "Custom sprites always work as well".

    I don't see myself doing better than the NES game sprites. Do you?

    I could see someone doing a hell of a lot better than NES sprites for a 16-bit skin.

    I suppose the graphics from DuckTales Remastered could potentially serve as reference material for a 16-bit skin.

    A 16-bit skin yes. But doing a sprite of a small size meant to ressemble the sprite from DuckTales Remastered wouldn't end up well.

    Thing is, the new game uses a kind of special style. Very thick outlines, and it seems it uses a lot of anti-aliasing, and high resolution of course.
    You'd get better results starting from the NES sprites.

    That would be awesome!

    As much as I'd like to see Scrooge in the game, it's best not to bring the wrath of The Mouse down on ER. Disney is not one of those companies that silently condones fan works; they are very, very protective.

    Here's an idea: how about we, oh I don't know, ASK PERMISSION?? It's worked several times in the past
    Oh? Then how do you explain this, this, or hey, even THIS???

    How the hell do you even ask permission from a BIG BUDGET COMPANY.
