Announcing the RANDOM SELECT COLLAB!

2013-05-09 03:46:56 by R1665
Updated

You know, that SENTINEL DESTRUCTION COLLAB was just so much fun that we HAVE to get the band together for an encore. This time, however, the game gets more... dangerous.

The RANDOM SELECT COLLAB is exactly what it sounds like. No more of this mamby-pamby "I'm gonna use the guy I think is awesome" stuff. No, sir. This time, the awesome animators will be using characters pulled from a hat. Like a business card from the fishbowl at Subway!

Who gets to decide these characters? YOU DO. Also us. But ALSO YOU!

Each animator gets to choose four characters to go in the drawing (we ARE doing the work, after all) and each fan gets one. Have a favorite character that you thought would NEVER be used in a sprite fight? Now is the time to suggest them!

Here are the rules for character selection:

1. 2D Fighting game characters only. No sonic. No Mario. Just fighting game characters.

2. No hi-res characters like Guilty Gear or Blazblue. Nothing against those characters specifically, it's just that the project can handle only so much size-wise. Gonna be a lot of data there and we gotta be frugal.

3. No MUGEN customs. If they never existed in a real game, they aren't allowed.

4. No version-specific picks. You can't pick "Pocket Fighter Chun-Li" or "Street Fighter Alpha Chun-Li". It's just "Chun-Li". The animator will choose which version they feel is most appropriate.

5. A character named multiple times will only be entered once. Winning fans will be credited if their pick wins. First named, first credited.

6. As per animator request, no shotoclones. They are all the same. If one is named anyway, one AND ONLY ONE predetermined shotoclone will be added to the drawing. Seriously, though. Those guys are tapped out. Why pick them?

Rules subject to revision later. I reserve the right to refuse any selection. I want to keep this as unrestricted as possible, but I know that some of you can get... rather trollish. That said, fire away!

DEADLINE IS JUNE 1st.

-----------------------

For contributors, here are the build rules:
- 20 FPS
- 45-60 seconds in length per fight
- No text or story. This is all about the fight.
- Fights are 1 vs 1. No special guests.
- You don't have to show a "winner", but try to have some sort of climax.
- NO RAGEQUITTING! If you don't like the characters you get, tough shit. It's luck of the draw. Make your crappy characters awesome. Bring your "A" game. That's your job. There will be a lot of talent in this collab and you don't want to be the guy who chickened out...
- If you don't bring the pain, you might get cut. Just because you don't like your fighters is no reason to half-ass it.
- As a contributor, you get four character picks. Make them count. If you troll pick, you just might get stuck with your own guy. I would also recommend not picking a character you plan to use in the future. Not a rule. Just a suggestion.

[PLEASE NOTE] - There aren't a whole lot of slots for potential contributors. We have five filled by default and space is limited. That said, if you don't make it into the collab, it's nothing personal.
---------------------------

Let's get this party started.

This is way, way, WAY after the deadline for this, but has anyone considered doing Brocken from World Heroes? He's a pretty interesting character, and in all honesty, he reminds of Inspector Gadget.

It took me forever to remember the name of the game since I haven't played it since I was.. what? Nine years old? Otherwise, I would have posted this sooner.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxhgS3riQJw

Admittedly, the only videos I can find for this guy involve him using cheap tactics to win fights instead of showcasing exactly what he can do.

are mugen characters that were based of 3d fighting game characters that were originally sprited to a 2D fighting game style allowed?

(Updated ) R1665 responds:

They are not. Better get your choice in quick because it's almost the deadline.

I think JSDarkness was talking about Megaman X. He's a different character from Megaman, but is probably ineligible since I don't think X has been in a fighting game. He may have been at some point, but I don't remember.


JSDarkness29327JSDarkness29327

2013-05-23 19:13:58

What about Megaman? From the Megaman X series

R1665 responds:

Megaman is eligible due to the MvC series. He is already taken. Feel free to choose again.

I wanna say Deadpool because hes my all time favorite anti-hero but I wonder hows that pick for you? Because I even have sprites for him if you're considering him

R1665 responds:

Mugen custom. Ineligible under rule #3.

Motaro and Smoke. If not both, please use the first choice, because the last 2 MK games he was in he got the short end of the stick by his own creators.

Jedah from Vampire savior

I was going to say Wolverine but I knew someone would pick him eventually :)

So I went with a fighter I love who's probably not on everyones wishlist


TheWikKidTheWikKid

2013-05-17 15:49:13

Not sure if anyone named them yet but Wolverine and Strider Hiryu (not sure if that's how it's spelled) would be awesome.

R1665 responds:

Wolverine was a secret animator pick. Normally, I would give you Wolverine and let them choose another, but since you also mentioned Strider, he can be your guy.

Fights have been done with Twelve?! Please tell me which ones he's in!

I'll change my pick to Kabal then :)

R1665 responds:

Very well. Kabal it is. I'll send you some Twelve links via PM.

Okay, let's go with Kyo Kusanagi, keep in mind, there are a lot of clones for this character, I'll leave a reference here:

Original Kyo (With schoolboy outfit, King of Fighters 94-98 and KOF 98 Ultimate Match, Capcom vs. SNK 2, SvC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom)
Evil/Shadow Version: KUSANAGI (KOF 2002, 2003, NEOWAVE, 2002 Unlimited Match, XIII(Customization))
Clone Version: Kyo-1 and Kyo-2 (KOF 99, KOF 2002 Unlimited Match)
NESTS Outfit (KOF 99-2002, KOF XI, Neo Geo Battle Coliseum, KOF XIII (13)
Biker Outfit (KOF 2003, XI, XII, XIII)
Maximum Impact outfit (KOFMI)

If there is customization needed, I'll try to help out.

I would say Johnny Cage but you already used him once in exiles. So how about Iori?

Sweet ill try pick some characters that get no love lol


JeffBeeJeffBee

2013-05-14 17:05:43

Please, R1665, don't refuse Razor, I can give a link on his sprites!!!

R1665 responds:

Link me, then. I could only find one instance of Razor Ramon and it wasn't from the game you specified. Also it was considerably less than choreographically viable.

R1665


weydenweyden

2013-05-14 05:47:06

Damn this thing sounds awesome, P.S need more chicks in Beret's....just saying.

R1665 responds:

You'll be getting four picks, man. Beret it up if you want.

R1665


JeffBeeJeffBee

2013-05-13 05:25:43

Well... Scott Hall a.k.a. "Razor Ramon"
Game: "WWF Wrestlemania. The Arcade Game."

R1665 responds:

I was initially going to refuse this due to wrestling games not being fighting games. However, after watching the character in action on YouTube, I have concluded that he is choreographically viable.

Unfortunately, however, I must disqualify him due to those sprites being unavailable. I checked. Please try again.

I would've asked someone to do Anji (GG) for the lols but he's out.

Hmm how about DragonCl... no wait he's out too.

Maybe Kung Fu Man... No MUGEN itself isn't really a game.

Oh I know: someone from Melty Blood! Hmm, I've seen Ciel in some animations. Let me see...

Hisui! She is a dressed as a frickin maid! If someone can make her look badass, this collab would be more awesome.

2013-05-11 17:31:56

Actually, I'd rather see Twelve from Street Fighter, I never though anyone would ever make a flash with him

R1665 responds:

Twelve noted. I will say that I think he should be disqualified due to his ability to morph into other characters. Like Shang Tsung. Hadn't thought about that. Also, there have been quite a few Twelve fights in the past.

Gimme one more if you got it.

R1665


Mini-DudeMini-Dude

2013-05-11 17:29:44

Hmmm, I guess I'll say Captain 'Merica since Iron Man is already recommended. Seems like everybody here has some good taste ;)

R1665 responds:

Captain America is also already... You know what? I'll just put all of the "taken" ones in the news post.

Pardon me...

There needs to be King of Fighters characters.

(Updated ) R1665 responds:

Nothing stopping you from recommending them. ...or calling on others to recommend them.

Ya know what nvm, im not gonna add one just because of how unknowledgeable about what sprite characters have been created. Sorry bro.

2013-05-10 19:11:56

bill cosby is a custom? -.-

Well then how do i know which ones are allows and which aren't? I've never played mugen.

Fine ill just do generic sonic because i got nothing.

R1665 responds:

People that have appeared in games that have shown up in arcades or home consoles are good.

R1665


SS4FlameAlchemistSS4FlameAlchemist

Here's a question. When you say no MUGEN sprites, your just talking about fan characters and original stuff specific to MUGEN right?

R1665 responds:

Yes. Most, if not all, of the sprites used will have been pulled from the MUGEN versions of these characters. It's the easiest way to get ahold of their sprites.

However, characters created specifically for MUGEN tend to be incomplete (or at least undercomplete). I'm not going to force another animator to use a hand-drawn character with only 115 frames. Some good ones like Dragonclaw or Ghostkick may be rendered invalid due to this rule, but it's the fairest way I know to work it out.

R1665


ArcaneSoulArcaneSoul

2013-05-10 06:17:29

I'll add in bill cosby for lols (if you can get a sprite of him).

R1665 responds:

MUGEN custom = No bueno. Rule 3.

Try again.

R1665 responds:

I've noted you in the candidate pool. I'm also noting your pick as Iron Man since you mentioned him first.

I'm a little iffy about not letting authors choose their own characters. If they end up getting a character they've never heard of and don't know shit about the character, it's going to make the fight crap if they end up using the character wrong. Sometimes Wiki can only help you so much.

But... whatever. I would love to join if there are spaces available.

R1665 responds:

Using a character one is unfamiliar with is all part of the challenge. Anyone can made their beloved characters look like badasses. Doing the same thing with a random pick? Even if it's someone they don't like or aren't familiar with? That's skill.

R1665

As a fan, i was going to say Fulgore from Killer Instinct, but i am unsure if it is hi-res. If that is the case i think Venom would be cool to see. Oh big fan of your works!

R1665 responds:

Killer Instinct is fine. They aren't hi-res.

I will consider Fulgore to be your pick then as you mentioned him (it?) first.

love the idea of this collab! I vote for Cap. America to go into the hat. no one has EVER used him in any sprite based animation I've ever seen and his sprites from MvC are very nicely made


Pkmn2Pkmn2

2013-05-09 11:06:31

As a fan I pick: Mars People (Metal Slug [Check Capcom VS SNK 2 for sprites])

One more thing, contributors. Your picks will remain secret. If a fan picks someone that you had already chosen, then you will be asked to provide another.

If you're not contributing and you would like to, drop me an PM and we'll talk. This is a war and WE NEED SOLDIERS!
