    Announcement time! :D

    First off, while there is not yet a date for the next SMBC update, rest assured that I am working away at getting the skins ready. :)

    In addition to preparing new skins, I've also been working on touching up some existing skins for things, focusing on some details and accuracy, as well as general improvement in some cases. I thought I'd share something I've been doing.


    You may not notice right away, but this is actually a color revamp of Bass. There a a couple of minor color adjustments to the 8-bit sprites, but the main change is the way his 16-bit sprites will appear. Bass's 16-bit sprites will now follow the Mega Man & Bass pattern, which means Bass will remain dark gray, but the gold parts will change color.

    (Please note that the inclusion of the Magma Bazooka colors here does not confirm its inclusion in the game, I just included it because it's part of the palette.)

    I can't guarantee a set schedule or anything regarding these updates, but I will be making them from time to time. :)

    Those definitely fit Bass more in my opinion.

    Excellent idea! It does feel closer to Bass' image, it increase slighty the distinction between Bass and Mega Man. :)

    Not too excited about the wait on a mystery date but...

    Damn I love that Zelda II skin worth the wait.:joy:

    I assumed he actually did change colors in 10 (which I haven't played or researched much) and I was wrong, but I was SURE the black shouldn't have changed.


    SO MUCH.

    I should clarify something: the top colors of Bass are the 8-bit versions, and in those he does change color completely like Mega Man and Proto Man do, and he will still do so in SMBC. They have been included to show a few color changes. I changed the colors of a weapon or two, and I decided to match Bass's colors with the weapons, rather than simply use the same colors as Mega Man.

    Bass looks good like that, and the palettes still change enough to make it clear what weapon you have equipped. Well done!
    That Zelda II level skin looks interesting enough to be worth trying, too.

    Announcement time! :D

    First, behold this sheet:

    For the upcoming update, I'm revamping some of the 16-bit sheets. In this case, the biggest change is the weapon icons. The recolored 8-bit weapon icons were just not doing it for me, so I decided to design some new ones based on the MM7 and MMX icons. Also, in the case of skins that aren't Mega Man or Bass, I'm going to do my best to replace most of the weapons so that there will be more variety. As you can see here, I've replaced Pharaoh Shot with Atomic Fire and Metal Blade with Shadow Blade. The 8-bit Wily sheet also has these weapon changes.

    There are a few other changes to this 16-bit sheet--see if you can spot them all! :p

    Mega Man 7 Energy Balancer. And the shuttle has finally the first animation line, but no more icon for it.

    EDIT: Ninja'd.
