Call for player skins!
« on: July 15, 2009, 01:55:15 AM »
Hey guys!  I need people to help scour the FC section and submit all the really neat-o-keen skins there are so that they can be considered for inclusion in 1.8 Final.

In general, skins need to be:

1) Low-res - they have to fit with the rest of the game, naturally.
2) Team-colored - you have to know which team you're on.
3) Characters from video games - no Naruto or Harry Potter or Christopher Walken or some character someone invented.  Exceptions can be made for this one if I deem them appropriate.
4) Dependent on the default palette that ships with the game - no fancy custom palette stuff.

I reserve the right to veto any submission, but I tend to be easily impressed.  :)

Please post any skins (you can also have links to zips or whatever, but please be sure to include the skin images themselves!) that you want to nominate for inclusion in this thread.  Please do not PM me with skins.

(BTW I'm posting this here so that it doesn't start raising excitement.  In the unlikely case that somehow, we never get past Beta 1, I don't want to have set up the forum for disappointment by making everyone think that the next version is just around the corner.  It may actually be, but it's safer to assume that it isn't.)

Also, in the meantime, I'd like to know what the following skins are supposed to be, since I can't tell if they're from a video game or not:

ftg_monkey
ftg_train

There are some other skins in the game (HelloKitty is not a video game character, and Kooper uses lots of non-palette colors, for example) that don't really fit the criteria very much, but I'll let them slide for now unless someone can convince me otherwise.

Oh and if anyone wants to make a version of NinjaKid, Daisy, BusterBeetle, Oldman, Peach, WarioWare, or FighterFly with a proper shield outline, please go ahead.  I might do this myself if nobody volunteers.

I think those were custom ones Felix made up at the time. I don't recognize them from any game.
Also, Asgardreid made a lot of good skins during his time which could probably go in.

Times today are just as bad what with the video game market being made up of 80% first person shooters that are 80% brown and 20% black and 100% bloom.

GDKN:
[spoilers:2havbeof]Battletoads

Contra

Doomguy

Master Higgins

Quote

Megaman

Snowbro

Twinbee

Mother Brain

Kid Chameleon

Solid Snake

Dig Dug

Bionic Commando

Following isn't quite out of a video game but it's still a pretty cool skin:
Ripster
[/spoilers:2havbeof]

KingPepe:
[spoilers:2havbeof]Jelectro

Air Man

Metal Man

Heat Man

Crash Man

Wood Man

Bubble Man

Quick Man

Flash Man

Yellow Devil

Galaxy Man

Skull Man

Ojisama Chaos (this might not really, fully be a videogame character, but this skin is amazing)

Spelunker

L-Block

Mr. Gimmick

Toy


Dark Belra

Hitmonlee

Hitmontop


There's more, but those are the ones I just happened to stumble across in his thread and are more recent. I think there's a few others that should be included but I'm too lazy to go scour FC[/spoilers:2havbeof]

Asgardreid:
[spoilers:2havbeof]Mr. Game & Watch

Torterra

Geno

Napalm Man

Captain Olimar

Warmech
[/spoilers:2havbeof]

and I doubt that ftg_train and ftg_monkey are from games.

I'll drop some more in eventually, when I run into them.

The Hello Kitty skin is from an NES game called Hello Kitty World. It's like Balloon Fight's Balloon Trip mode turned into a full game. It's really kinda fun. Also, allow me to gripe once again that I made the Buster Beetle skin. Fixing the outline is no trouble at all, so anyone could do it.

I know Hello Kitty's been in games, but the character didn't originate from games.  I'll keep it in though since it's been in the game for a while and I'm sure there are people who like to use it.

Thanks for organizing this skin inventory/clean up.  And yes, the train/monkey were from Felix and I liked them so I put them into my game, but they got bundled with everything.  Once skin cleanup is done, we can move on to map cleanup, which is much trickier as some maps are used in tours/worlds that might need to be updated as well.

Just a quick update on the smw development front.  I am feature complete with everything that I wanted to get in.  I have a few more world editor fixes that I need to do and a bug or two to fix.  But I'm making good progress and there might be a new secret or two... :)

The only problem with that is the squashed frames. Those aren't exactly lo-res.

I'm just bumping this because I think this should get going sometime, considering Jared seems to be around a bit more at the moment.

Unless he's busy!
