Forum Avatars - RIP

Recommended Posts

Glad to see Yotsuba and 4-tan made it in by your hands, Larry. (Clever choice cropping 4-tan closer like that.) I also like the surprise additions like Metroid 2 Samus, the Dragon Quest enemies (facilitating the Enix category), and the Shatterhand hero. Really freshens things up.

LT: The Yotsuba one turned out aight, but I'm pissed I couldn't get the 4-tan any sharper without it looking messed up. Not what I would have preferred, but couldn't crop any closer. Glad you saw the others; I did those a little ways back. I added some more this morning, coincidentally. Not a host of them, but maybe 10 spread across several categories. Some only got 1, but they're in Hudson Soft, Konami, Nintendo, Nintendo ~ Mario (most of 'em), Sammy, SNK, and misc.

Some refinements...

Capcom ~ Fighters

· There's actually no "h" in Jon Talbain's name. Like Jon Arbuckle.

· The Card Fighters 2 Cammy is missing her native background, so here's a fix-up:

svccard2_cammy.gif

Capcom ~ Mega Man

· Mega Man: Mega Man (portrait 2) is from Rockman 2: The Power Fighters (his health bar icon).

· Mega Man: Frog is named "Croacker" according to the Mega Man 2 instruction manual (that extra 'c' must've been a typo, though).

· Mega Man V: Gyro is named Power Massler.

Nintendo ~ Mario

· Yoshi's Island: Snowman is named Huffin Puffin.

Sega ~ Sonic

· Sonic the Hedgehog: Piranha is named Chopper.

Square ~ Final Fantasy

· Final Fantasy IV: Imp (green) - Part of his hat is missing, plus its extension was ICO when I saved it, so here's a pure-GIF replacement:

ff4_impgreen.gif

Sunsoft

· The Lufia 1 and 2 avatars belong in the Taito category, since they first published those games. (I know this category would be left with just three avatars, but still.)

Other

· That other 4-tan is also by blackmyst, in case you want to add it (in parentheses).

Castlevania 3 figures and weapons:

cv3_skeleton_whip.gif

LT: Skeleton with a bone whip? Sure.

I assume you changed your mind because his feet cut off. Care for a foot job?

cv3_skeleton_whip2.gif

LT: Thanks for all the fixes. Gonna have to find some more Sunsoft stuff!

To partially fill the gap left by the Lufia avatars' migration, here are some Sunsoft avatars...

sunsoft_avvies.png

Wynn from Atlantis no Nazo; Batman (full sprite and title screen capture) from Batman (NES); Uncle Fester (in-game and intro) from Fester's Quest; Yumetarō (a stuffed animal) from Gimmick!; Gizmo from Gremlins 2: The New Batch; a blob or something (I couldn't find an appropriate enemy list) from Hebereke; Jay McCray (in-game and intro) from Journey to Silius; a title screen Lemming from Lemmings (SNES); and Lucia from Wing of Madoola.

Pick any winners from here.

And here's three more characters from Guilty Gear Petit 2:

guiltygearpetit2_baiken.gif Baiken

guiltygearpetit2_dizzy.gif Dizzy

guiltygearpetit2_venom.gif Venom

LT: Most of 'em were oogly (not your fault, clearly), but I grabbed the Batman intro pic, Jay intro and Lemming, plus the GGP2 ones. Thanks!

Death Note: Kira Game

deathnotekiragame_L.gif L

deathnotekiragame_lightyagami.gif Light Yagami

deathnotekiragame_misaamane.gif Misa Amane

LT: A little too sharp/pixelated on the edges. Looking at the facial borders, especially for the first two, you can see there's not enough smoothness, even though the sharpness level seems good.

Dragon's Lair - Dirk the Daring

dragonslair_dirkthedaring.gif

LT: Not your fault, but at this size, the contrast isn't strong enough. The lines of the face aren't distinct enough.

Duke Nukem 3D - Duke Nukem

dukenukem3d_dukenukem.gif

LT: Nice.

FF7 - Vincent Valentine

ff7_vincentvalentine.gif

LT: Not enough contrast for the image to stand out, but might be nothing you can do.

MegaRace - Lance Boyle

megarace_lanceboyle.gif

LT: Bad pic. Sorry, Lance.

And Arek's request, Mr. L from Super Paper Mario

superpapermario_mrL.gif

LT: need it on a non-white background and we could roll with it.

Wow. I totally lost track of this thread. Here are the six Gauntlet one's you chose LT...

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Wizard.gif

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Warrior.gif

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Death.gif

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Generator1.gif

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Food2.gif

http://two.xthost.info/thecoop/Sorcerer.gif

LT: I already added 'em myself. :-P

Polo- Thanks for working on those four from PB2. I would have chosen different ones from what LT did (I would have gone with the 1st vamp, 3rd chick and 2nd robot since they looked more visible overall), but they're included now, so kudos to ya :-)

Glad to help. :)

By the way, do you still have those three Liquid Kids avatars from before (rock guy, slingshot-holding orb, and mummy)? I think your site went down before Larry could add them with transparent backgrounds...

----------

And cool new additions, LT! I never would've guessed the Super Mario Bros. 3 "Green Thing" (part of a hill cluster) would make it in. Ha!

Anyway, here's some overdue/supplemental quickies...

Tetris Attack - Little Yoshi:

ta_littleyoshi.gif

Tetris - J Block:

tetris_J_block.gif

And two child Rydias from FF4:

ff4_rydia_child.gifff4_rydia_child_face.gif

LT: Danke. I had the L and J reversed, so you actually provided an L. My spatial skills are clearly poop. What's the root image of the yellow Yoshi? I'd rather have more of his head fitting into the space at the expense of the (cool) bubbles.

P: Like the other TA characters, that's how Little Yoshi's icon is cropped/presented in the game. I only upped the brightness and contrast, like what Nineko and The Coop did back then, since in-game they're kinda dark.

And thanks for your detailed comments about my resizes; they're quite insightful and challenging. I'll post revisions in due time.

EDIT: And I was a bit perturbed to learn that several avatars aren't GIFs, but BMPs (and one JPG). So here's a list of GIF-transformation updates to:

Sammy

Guilty Gear XX: Slayer

Guilty Gear XX: Bridget

Anime/Manga

Azumanga Daioh: Yukari (somehow the bitmaps for this and Osaka were reinstated...)

Azumanga Daioh: Osaka

Saint Seiya: Camus

Great Teacher Onizuka: Eikichi Onizuka

Movies/TV

Stargate SG-1: Teal'c

Sin City: Kevin

Stargate SG-1: Jack O'Neill

LT: Many thanks. We push for GIFs not because other files don't work, but because of the filesize, so while a small detail, these are really helpful. Thanks very much!

Okay then, Resizes: Round 2...

Death Note: Kira Game (different sharpness levels and some manual smoothing out)

L

Light

Misa

Dragon's Lair - Dirk

dragonslair_dirk.gif (darker lines, c/o the burn tool)

FF7 - Vincent

ff7_vincent1.gif (a little more contrast)

ff7_vincent2.gif (same as above, plus more color saturation)

Super Paper Mario - Mr. L

spm_mrL.gif (green background)

Oh yeah, and one more BMP that should be a GIF (Misc category):

Ogre Battle 64: Quass

LT: Bueno bueno.

LT: I needed them a bit sharper, so I found a source image and added all 8 myself as well as MMX1, so there's a new category now. Thanks for the idea!

Wow Liontamer, that's quite the commitment adding a metric ton of Mega Man-related boss mugs (and a few others). No mislabels + all pure GIFs + Shadow Man and Storm Eagle portrait upgrades + classic/X category division = U R TEH NACHO MAN

LT: Props to Capcom for giving us that much avatar fodder. Not many franchises have sprites that work with our size requirements.

I also have questions/concerns/one new sub...

- Was kneeling Zero mmxzero8xx.gif deliberately removed in favor of the new standing Zero?

LT: Yep. See ya.

- In the Misc. category, "Ogre Battle 64: Quass" and "Monkey Island 1" don't show up like the others. Selecting either as an avatar only shows the url path by the username. If they were lost somehow, here they are:

http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d13/polo_83/ogrebattle64_quass3.gif

http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d13/polo_83/monkeyisland1.gif

LT: Just needed to correct some filenames.

Tetris Attack - Little Yoshi:

ta_littleyoshi.gif

LT: What's the root image of the yellow Yoshi? I'd rather have more of his head fitting into the space at the expense of the (cool) bubbles.

P: Like the other TA characters, that's how Little Yoshi's icon is cropped/presented in the game. I only upped the brightness and contrast, like what Nineko and The Coop did back then, since in-game they're kinda dark.

If you still want a better facial shot, can I interest you in a three-pixel-width custom edit?

LT: No need for a custom job; when I see images like that, I just need to see context to know the cropping was optimal.

miabb.gif

LT: Let's go ahead with the black. What game in the series is this Mia image from?

mia is from Phoenix Wright -Justice for all-

Just a reminder, since I didn't see Mia in the Capcom category.

LT: I uploaded the file back in June and forgot to make it active, but it's set now, thanks.

And speaking of great justice, here's Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee:

yahtzee.gif

LT: Excellent choice.

I found the portraits for the other four robot masters from Mega Man 9 at some Mega Man wiki

Jewel Man:

jewel.gif

Bee Guy:

hornet.gif

Plug Man:

plug.gif

Tornado Man:

tornado.gif

There's also an in-game sprite in each boss' article, but they're all larger than 32 X 32 (except for Tornado Man)

LT: Mucho bueno.

A few more Mega Man 9 sprite rips. First, some logos.

Dr. Light Logo:

DrLight.gif

Also available in black if it's too similar to the Dr. Wily logo.

Dr. Right Logo (from the Japanese version):

DrRight.gif

Again, also available in black

While I'm at it, here's Mr. X's logo from Mega Man 6.

And two new portraits.

Helmetless Mega Man:

Megaman_Helmetless.gif

Proto Man:

Protoman.gif

LT: Pretty complete collection we've got now!

While we're on the subject of Mega Man, here's...

An E-Tank (MM2)

mm2_e-tank.gif

Dr. Cossack (MM4)

mm4_drcossack.gif

Beat (MM5)

mm5_beat.gif

Mr. X (MM6)

mm6_mrx.gif

Sniper Joe (from the 8-bit remake of MM7)

LT: These are coo.

Faces from MM3:

Break Man

Doc Robot

Bomb Man

Cut Man

Elec Man

Fire Man

Guts Man

Ice Man

Roll

LT: Those are all kind of ugly looking. May not be the case, but are the MM1 faces actually too large to fit 32x32? Seems like the were cropped slightly, but I could be wrong. In any case, most of them were ugly. :'-(

And if you don't mind two more literally over-the-top avatars, here's full sprites of Doc Robot (MM3) and Vile (MMX).

LT: Nah. Doc Robot's not a mission critical character, so I'll pass on the oversized one. Vile's too large on both dimensions rather than just the height.

Here's some Mother 3 sprites. Please tell me if I am doing it wrong.

LT: Don't like Human Boney, but the other two are good to go.

Nice work, Polo. I was planning on posting the doc robot portrait, but it slipped my mind.

not done yet, still have to rip these bitches myself

You could also just gank them from sprite sites like this one, though it's best to wait until after you finish the game (spoliers and all).

To help out a bit, here's some Pigmasks, with alt poses to spice things up since they're all just palette swaps

Pigmask:

pigmask.gif

alternate sitting verion

Pigmask Captain:

pigmask_captain.gif

on the phone

Pigmask Major:

pigmask_major.gif

facing diagonally

Pigmask Colonel:

pigmask_colonel.gif

saluting version to match his battle sprite

EDIT: I just noticed the general lack of Mother avatars, despite it having its own section, so here's a bunch of submissions from Mother 3 and a three EB enemies (Mad Duck, Enraged Fire Plug, and Mystical Record). Names are in the file names

And here's a rar of all the submissions in this post, for your mass downloading convenience.

LT: Lots of good stuff in here, so I chose what looked best; excellent stuff!

I know it might not exactly be appropriate for me to ask this here, but just delete this post if so.

The avatar I currently have doesn't show in the list. It mysteriously disappeared after the first "major patch" of avatars was added, and I still can't find it anywhere. Figured I could mention this here since that's where you pick new avatars to upload there. I really love the lil bugger and I'm afraid of picking a different avatar then regretting because I don't like it as much.

BTW much <3 for all the new ones guys!

It doesn't show up because you have it chosen. If you pick a different avatar, your old one will show up on the list again, and your new one will disappear from it. It's just how the setup works.
