Forum Avatars - RIP

Recommended Posts

hmm... maybe someone should make avatars for the remaining albums then?

(Rozo should do it!)

Fine.

Done.

Uploading when I feel like it.

:D

Uploaded to the same 275m dir, ocraavs.zip. One avatar for each album except SDB, which has two.

LT: Used most of them, but not anything with blurriness or recognizability issues. Nice work! :nicework:

Just saw that many new albums avatars have been added, bringing the total from 18 to 26. :nicework:

Could it be the sign that moar avatars are about to be unleashed onto the unsuspecting masses?

Based on what Larry told me recently, I wouldn't hold my breath.

I could be wrong though and maybe he actually had some downtime and got bored enough to go through this thread. (HAHAHA yeah right)

I dunno, I downloaded the ocraavs.zip or whatever from this thread that had the avatars, and the teen agent one was the same... so it seems likely that either it was gotten from there by whoever does avatars, or someone had the same idea. :-P Anyway thanks to whoever made it :-D And the new ones had not been added yet when I turned on my TA avatar. So, only a few more to go and it happened pretty quick.

John McClane from the lesser-known Japan-only TurboGrafx-16 Die Hard game.

LT: Cool. Never heard of that game until now.

Been wondering: will the site update allow for people to add their own custom avatars?

Cause in this day and age, such functionality is available on nearly every forum/BBS.

It would be pretty rad to have that option on OCR as well. :)

I agree here. (Plus it's kinda disturbing to find several people having the same avatar.)

Such a feature would ost likely have to go through some sort of human review. Mostly because otherwise, we would see lots of questionable avatar pics.

But aside from that, I wouldn't mind personal ones as well. As it is, I understand, only admin, staff and some project/album people get to have personal ones.

I don't mind the lack of custom avatars, as it makes it so that the existing avatars are all consistent, and similarly sized.

What I do mind is that it has been over a year and 5 months since I posted that VVVVVV avatar (want want want want want want).

Captain Viridian from VVVVVV

Anywho, back to lurking.

LT: Back to lurking. We'll see when you notice your avatar change. :-)

Every time someone complains about the delays with the avatars, Larry sets it back 3 months.

So no complaining!

(seriously though be patient, this really is a low-priority thing unfortunately)

Would it be too selfish to slap some BS up in hea'? bs.gif

LT: The custom logo's too blurry.

It's based on this: bs.png

I don't think there'd be a way to unblur it since it has fine, small lines but I might need to come up with a better "letter logo" and come back to you on that. Gotta get something definitive and.. and good..

Thanks for the old edit there, had to go back and see and was surprised! I'm gonna go look for that WWP globe and see if it made it in.

LT: Cool. Never heard of that game until now.

I hadn't heard of the game until I saw a translation patch for it... and the McClane sprite was 32x32 so I thought I'd post it up.

Plus, it's a hilarious sprite. Not sure if you actually used it or not though (couldn't find it myself XD)

LT: Misc. Games

This is just too cute not to have. It's a "fuzzy" from Super Mario World. Not the best-known enemy from that game, I know. I'm including mirrors (this is the in-game animation - repeatedly mirroring the sprite) and 2 different zooms. Take your pick. I know the white eyes blend into the white background here, but they should look okay on the grey post headers. I hope. And if not:

fuzzybgrev.giffuzzybg.gif

If necessary, I can put the smaller ones on green background too, but it wouldn't be as much fun.

LT: We'll see how the very first one turns out on the background.

On the green background, you mean?

Also, yay, more mascots!

LT: This guy: fuzzyrev.gif

I was shocked when I realized that there were Mega Man Robot Masters missing from the avatar list.

Profiles: BusterRodG.gifMegaWaterS.gifHyperStormH.gif

Sprites: Busterrodsprite.gifMegawatersprite.gifHyperstormsprite.gif

Given that the sprite for Hyper Storm H didn't come out so well (because he's HUGE), I won't be offended if only the profile pics end up in the list.

Sadly, it won't be in time for 4B2C, but oh well. Next time.

LT: None of those came out well, including the profiles. The first 2 sprites seem sharp enough, but need to be brightened. There's a lot of messyness and degradation with the other 4. Perhaps link to a page with the sprite sheets and ask others to give it a go.

OK, here's a shot at improvements. Two options with different interpolation methods. If you like either of them, let me know and I'll do the rest the same way. If you don't, tell me which you prefer and I'll work on improving them in that direction.

Gosh, I'm a week late for my yearly avatar-thread-check and look what happens. That'll show me.

The Player's Pin from The World Ends With You. A rather important icon overall within the game, it even shows up as the icon when you're booting the game up.

So here ya go.

LT: Need some transparency action there. Possibly sharper resolution as well.

Here's a few Megaman Zero 2 ones I threw together, for a quick try at some representation for my favorite Megaman subseries:

I don't know if this is typically for requests but it would be awesome to get some Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls avatars, and maybe a Quantic Dream category to choose from. Maybe even Kara, The Dark Sorcerer, and other QD stuff. But in particular I'd like some BTS. :-)

Freelancer icon:

#1 freelancer.gif original (cropped semi-transparent pixels)

#2 freelancer-average.gif mix between #1 and #3

#3 freelancer-sharpened.gif sharpened version of #1

I can try to put this on a background if you think the edges are too sharp.

There's also a 38x44 version, but it looks like the 32x32 rule is still in effect despite at least one avatar breaking the rule.

Preloaded forum avatars will be going away with the migration to IPB. People will be able to set custom avatars after the migration.

That explains why no one else has posted anything in this thread since 2013 :) Thanks!

EDIT: Will we still be limited to .gif? Can't think of a good reason not to allow for .png, but I guess that's already been brought up...
