[quote="dfyb":2jedvfld]when tracing sprites, at least give credit where it's due
most of your character is just a recolored version of Angel from KOF.
It's slightly more than "recoloured" for starters, more like heavily modified... for instance, completely redesigning the legs, and gourad shading the entire sprite by hand. It's quite known that a method of mine (as well as others) is to use existing charater sheets for an animation template. I'm a good artist, but not a great animator... but whatever.
Anyway, I have made some good progress on the engine tonight over a few too many drinks. Here is a link for those of you who want to check it out and give some feedback. I know certain things aren't working right, like the crouching animation... but anything else you find that's "weird" (regarding play mechanics) please let me know.http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/8/21/ ... e-v0.8.exe
