I didn't say it was.
But this thread is about skins, fucker!
BUT I COINED THAT PHRASE FIRST.
Actually I said it before any of you in passing, shortly after 2.0 was released.
... Well damn.
Debating aside, Is is difficult to upload a character skin?
No it's quite easy to upload a skin to the wiki. The thread "Skin @ Wiki" or something this way even explains how to do so step by step.
I know that.
I meant from sprite sheet to in game.
I believe that skins are only addable by the team, so you can't even do it.
Just wait for the update and hope your skins get in.
Okay... Now what...
You make skins and hope for the best.
There are some things you can keep in mind when making skins:
We look for quality representation of the character. So, even if you have to make custom sprites, make sure they represent the character well. SMBC is about quality, and to be fair to the companies who made the original characters, we intend to represent those characters as best as we can.
Use existing characters, rather than fan-made characters (this includes selves and other forum members), we're sticking with existing characters.
Make sure you know how every frame on the sheet works. I've seen some sheets where some odd things have been done because the skinner didn't know exactly what frames were for what. So, study the sheets, and study the character movements in the game.
Get creative! Some characters may fit as a skin for someone very well, but they may be missing a couple of attacks. Try to come up with something that fits with the theme of that character (e.g., skull-type blasts for Skull Man's Mega Buster replacement), or try to draw on as many games as that character has been in as possible (e.g., looking at all of the Mega Man games to find themed weapons for a Robot Master).
That's why I'm more comfortable with the Peach, Daisy and Rosalina skins than with the Megagirl skin.
Any updates regarding the above questions since the Unity port has been cancelled?
Now that I have your attention, keep your eyes on this thread, as I will periodically be releasing some information regarding skins for future updates.
For now, I will say that I have some pretty cool things planned for both new skins and existing skins.
Oooooooh can't wait...
I just hope a certain lady gets added as a skin but either way this is .
>See sbq post in this thread
>Run to see what new skins were announced
>Realize it was a trap
>Drown in my tears
Lol. Sorry about that. I'm not quite ready to make the announcements, but I wanted to let people know that announcements will be made soon. I'm pretty excited about some of the things I have planned, and I hope you guys will be, too.
>Reads uglyrodent's post
I still hope for a Christine skin for Link or a Francesca Skin for Mega Man...
But anythings better than nothing.
