[Release Watch] Strong Guy, Day 9

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Welcome back to our ongoing Release Watch for Strong Guy! I had to drive to work Monday, effectively eliminating my MUGEN time for that day. Yesterday, I spent some time tweaking things here and there, adding missing "lost by timeout" anims, aligning messed-up custom hit animations for the Piledriver hyper, that sort of thing. As for the final remaining hyper, X-Factor Attacks, I've been hunting down appropriate sound effects; developing during my commute means I've been testing him with the sound off, and didn't even notice how quiet the attack seemed until last night! :-P I've got Polaris's and Havok's part done, so the sound effects are all that's left there. So close now I can almost taste it!

X-Factor attacks! Lorna and Alex put the finishing hurt on Guido's foe.

This puts my remaining task count at 0.2 subparts of the hyper (sounds for Quicksilver and Wolfsbane), and 2 camera bug fixes (which really are both the same issue in two different places, so when I fix one the other will be trivial):

Remix tasks

  • code cleanup (move basics/specials/hypers to their own .st files)
  • add lose on time over anim
  • add draw game anim
  • fix hypers to not give back power meter
  • Revamp Kinetic Energy Bar (new sprites & code tweaks)

  • new special: Up You Go
  • tweak damage/effects of Run Deep special

I may have good news for y'all tomorrow or Friday. :)

That's a REALLY nice Havok sprite... Do you know if anyone's working on turning it into a character, or, if not, if it's allowed to be worked on? (And, if so, do you know what the bases are?)
You'd have to ask McCready, I'm honestly not sure.
