This is looking really good! If you need some help (Power-ups, Frames, etc.) I would GLADLY help!
Feel free to help if you like
Can someone tell me what the sprites are next to the swimming sprites (the ones I left blank)? They look like either crawling sprites, or more swimming sprites, and I can't quite tell which. I'd play Blaster Master to find out, but it's sadly not on nintendo8, and I don't want to have to download a ROM to play it.
On another note, all that's left are the sprites I just mentioned, and everything below the cannonballs/wrenches. I made new tank sprites, and I edited all explosions to have the same 3 colors as the flames from the airship level (which as you can see are the jets on the bottom of his tank).
If you don't readjust the height of your tank sprite, as it has no wheel sprites, it will just float.
Good point, thanks for that.
Those two sprites are used for ducking/crawling.
If it's not on nintendo8, you can also check http://virtualnes.com , they have a large selection of NES games.
Thank you for that. Here's an updated skin. I'm still unsure about what three of the power-ups are supposed to do though.
Well, they haven't all been implemented yet. For the moment, you can post an incomplete version and add the other sprites once you can see how they work.
Looks good, by the way.
I know it's a bit silly, but I'd love to see a Spyro skin, because Spyro is my childhood.
Another idea! A Landmaster, with Fox McCloud over Jason!
→ That's a freaking great idea! I can't work on it right now, but I really would like to!
I thought of this as well, but didn't really feel like making it. It would definitely be cool though. I also had an idea of replacing Mega Man's Rush Marine with Fox's Blue Marine for whenever the game incorporates it.
But the more awesome idea I had was replacing the Rush Marine with the Arwing, and then turning underwater cheat on so that you're always in it
How can that be? We're talking about a dragon replacing a tank!
I might try it once I get better at custom spriting.
Not just the Rush Marine, but all of Mega Man. Fox would probably make a great Mega Man skin.
It could be doable. I don't know all the details of SOPHIA's sprites and how they work, but land-based tanks (i.e., no wheels) have already been done, why not at least attempt a land-based animal?
Only thing I could see wrong with Spyro is the fact that it's going to be one static sprite, because the only thing on Sophia that really animates (for the most part) are the wheels. Only other animation is the bobbing up and down. It's definitely doable, but you're going to have to make one sprite that's good enough for everything other than aiming.
Yeah, this was my only real reservation about it. I'd have to take another look at the sheet, but IIRC, there aren't different sprites for the bobbing up and down. If there were, it could easily be done, as two frames of animation would be sufficient for creating the illusion of walking.
You make the wheels legs, and have them step instead of rotate. Easy. A bigger issue will be having him glide instead of hover, IMO.
No, there's only one sprite for bobbing. I know that sheet pretty well after my Monty Mole skin.
It's the wheels that move, and they're a separate sprite from the tank.
Well Spyro basically controlled like a tank while charging, so it's not that much of a stretch.
Separate names with a comma.
