Right back at ya, Solo. I guess now's a good time to post some Mother 2 stuff I've been keeping on my hard drive.

LT: Hahaha, Master Belch is pretty nasty, so I skipped him, but the rest are great. Danke.

I wanted to request an avatar here.

Cynthia-1.gif

It is an 8-Bit version of my OC, Cynthia, and this version was used for a modification of the Rockman 7 - FC game that was released. I hope it counts, because I want to change my avatar to this, if possible.

LT: Nah, no OCs. We're just doing in-game characters/objects.

It's not too big (not by today's standards anyway), you just need to crop it (remove the empty space around it) and give it a transparent background. Maybe a little contrast/brightness tinkering.

Like so: magus.gif

But isn't there a picture of him showing his face? Looks like he's got his back turned here.

Did the max dimensions get changed? I know LT added a few avatars that are larger, but the OP still says 32 x 32 is the max image size.

LT: It's my discretion, but I'm generally only going to allow exceptions in height, and the avatar obviously has to look very good.

I know, but I've seen much bigger ones. Technically the limit still stands but LT has been making several exceptions,

like this 31x42 one: mmx1_xjumpfire.gif

I don't know how big they can get but I doubt you could stretch beyond 40x40 (i.e. exceeding the limit by more than a few pixels in either dimension). 36x32 shouldn't be a problem though.

LT: It's mostly going to be height exceptions, not width. If we mess with width a lot, it starts screwing with the alignment of names, which I'm not down with.

Any way we can get this sprite of magus as an avatar?

1218inm.png

I am thinking it is probably too big, but here is hoping.

Taken from a magus sprite sheet. I know it looks like crap. Polo, think you can make it look "pretty"? :)

backtrack the thread, i think someone already submited those, Larry took some sprite of magus but not this one.

I like it because it is a cool pose for him :P

Would there be a problem with his face not showing? :?

EDIT: What programs are you guys using to make these? I wanna try taking a whack at making some CT avatars. There is a lack of some that I think would go great, if possible.

LT: Obviously, I prefer faces showing, but there's no inherent problem with the pose showing his back, I just don't like it.

Arek - Dafydd pretty much did what I would've done to that Magus sprite. That's about as "pretty" as it can get. :P Also, I use Paint Shop Pro 5 (and sometimes Photoshop CS3).

Dafydd - :nicework: And yes, there's two existing Magus sprites. Check the Square: Chrono category for them.

SoloGamer - Like Dafydd said, the max dimensions are still 32x32, but bigger sprites can be added, sparingly, at Larry's discretion.

Doulifée - Actually, that particular Magus sprite was never subbed before, not even by Joyzilla or Nineko.

Liontamer - Could you edit the OP if you cut the image tags from all but 4 of Joyzilla's subs? You know, to add a note about the larger exceptions (and cut the bit about you moving :lol:)?

I don't mind a face not showing, it's just weird to have an avatar showing you his ass. Kidding. I don't know what LT would say about it, he has opinions about all kinds of things... like avatars being too ugly to be accepted... :roll:

I use Paint.NET. It's free and everything, I mean, what's not to like? (Yeah, it does lack support for animated gifs, but hey, animated avatars aren't allowed anyway)

Faces from MM3:

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.

I nicked the MM1 bosses and Roll from the Mega Man 3 ending. They're 32x32, but if you look closely, you can see their mugshots droop down past their black backdrops by one pixel, so I added an unobtrusive line of black on the bottom of each and cropped accordingly.

But hey, if they're ugly, they're ugly. I won't argue. :P

Anyway, a few more MM-related sprites before I forget 'em...

mm_roll.gif Roll (not her portrait this time)

mm_drwily_surrender.gif Dr. Wily (surrendering)

mm4p_drcossack.gif Dr. Cossack (face)

OK here's some janitor from scrubs doing his evil eye:

jaintorevileyeavatar1sr7.gif

jaintorevileyeavatar2sb8.gif

jaintorevileyeavatar3vr5.gif

jaintorevileyeavatar4nk4.gif

Last one:

jaintorevileyeavatar5mo0.gif

Another one for good measure:

jaintoreveileyeavatar6fi0.gif

LT: The lack of contrast and sharpness are no good; probably wouldn't add it anyway.

I would like to replace an avatar already in the site; it is Brad Fang from Contra HardCorps.

^ It is the one I am currently using.

This picture is not bad, but there is some blur in the edge. Could you pick the one below instead? It has a better looking:

fangyc9.gif

And since I am here, I am posting all the other Contra Hard Corps playable characters:

Ray Poward:

rayqd8.gif

Sheena Etranzi:

sheenafn9.gif

Browny:

brownynw0.gif

More Contra HardCorps.

Colonel Bahamut:

colonelbahamuthh6.gif

Dr. Geo Mandrake:

drgeomandrakeqb6.gif

Deadeye Joe:

deadeyejoebm5.gif

Noiman Cascade:

noimancascadecm6.gif

Random Enemy Soldier

Air Police Pilot

Alien Recruiter

Pretty much all portraits from the game now.

LT: I didn't have any problem with the blur, but going without it does allow more of the image to show. Nice work providing these, thanks!

Joust avatars for potential consideration...

JoustAvatars.gif

In order, they are...

Player 1, Bounder, Hunter, Shadow Lord, Player 1 flying, Bounder flying, Hunter flying, Shadow Lord flying, pterodactyl, Hunter grabbed by Lava Troll (with fire), Player grabbed by Lava Troll (with fire), Hunter grabbed by Lava Troll, and Player grabbed by Lava Troll. I can make the Bounder and Shadow Lord grabbed by the Lava Troll as well if wanted/needed.

LT: Hate to shoot these down, but the core of the image is just too small. Could try a slightly tighter cropping, but I'm not sure if it would fly. Worth trying though.

Please add this, Thank you.

This too:

kirbyface5.gif

SSB kirby.

LT: Gonna have to clarify why I'd want to add a random cat avatar. That some sort of mega-famous interweb cat? Either way, I'll pass. Kirby isn't sharp enough. Gotta scale back on these subs where the image quality isn't good.

GalaxianLineUp.gif

In order...

Galaxian 1, Galaxian 2, Galaxian 3, Galaxian 4, Ship, Galaxian 1 Attacking, Galaxian 2 Attacking, Galaxian 3 Attacking, Galaxian 4 Attacking

LT: Ship's too small, but if you zoom in on it, we can roll with that. Added the first half of the enemies/convoys. No need to add the enemies in charger form. Thanks!

I believe those are from the arcade original.

The NES sprites aren't as detailed (for lack of a better term).

joust.gifjoustarcade.gif

Also, you've never heard of Joust?

I think a friend of mine had a NES game I think was called Joust, but I'm pretty sure there were horses on the picture on the cartridge sticker...

might want to flip astro man so he's looking to the right

looks better that way

LT: I took Clown, Frost, Grenade & Tengu Man from MM8, since those were sharp crops. The rest got messed up with the resizing efforts and don't look sharp, so they're all NO-GO! You need to use Photoshop or something good to handle resizes.
