Mortal Kombat Anthology - Chameleon vs. Johnny Cage

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Now, you might say "this is a terrible fake"! And point out such things as the energy bars being too high and short, or the shadows not being parallel to Johnny, or something.

But it's not a fake.

This is actually a screenshot of a fangame I've been working on, off and on, for the past two years or so. Actually, I think I started it originally prior to Deception.

As I have work and other things to tend to, there may not even be a working demo of this for quite some time. I will take random screenshots every now and then to show, however.

Sprites and such are taken from Mortal Kombat Warehouse, which I will give credit to in the game. The Chameleon sprite was obviously modified to match the art I scanned for Wikipedia, from a Scorpion sprite.

I've already fixed the Johnny/shadow problem, by the way.

Questions are welcome, but I can't really give away too much about the game (mostly because it's still a WiP).

EDIT: Shrank the image to avoid effing with the page layout. Click it for a better view.

Even if it's not a fake, you should at least make it look nicer. MK1 Cage is a bad idea. MK1 Sprites shouldn't be used, since they're such low quality. And the lifebars do suck.

I'm already working on it looking better, in terms of lifebars and such (although they too were pulled from MKW, it's probably the screensize that screws that up).

MKI Johnny is an alternate costume. MKT Johnny is the default.

MKT? Is he the proper size? Or did you take the enlarged ones from MKW with the blue outlines?

Wouldn't MK2 Johnny be a better choice for an alternate? MK1 sprites suck so much - they don't have as many colors as MK2/MK3.

MK2 Johnny is another alternate.

MKT Johnny is indeed the MKT sprites, but cleaned up a bit. I'll try to get a screenshot of him in action by tomorrow.

Usually I would say:

"Ninja_Mime! Stop being a dick!"

But he's right, using MK1 and MKT sprites, not a good idea at all, sorry

2.5/5

-.-

Maybe I should explain.

Anthology uses sprites from ALL of the games, ala Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy (the hacked UMK3 Genesis ROM).

It's not meant to be an "OMG new game". It's basically a different kind of MK Trilogy.

RE: Mortal Kombat Anthology - Chameleon vs. Johnny Cage

Maybe I should have explained things to begin with.

This is Mortal Kombat Anthology, a fighting game made with Mark Overmars' Game Maker program. It is basically like an extention of Mortal Kombat Trilogy, except it encompasses MKI all the way through Armageddon. It also features every Finishing Move (sans Hara-Kiri and Kreate-A-Fatality) every character has been able to perform. With 68 characters, plus every character having every primary costume from every game, I really do have my work cut out for me. Each character has at the very least 2 Fatalities, a Friendship, a Babality, Animality, and Brutality.

Right now, the aesthetics of the game are the least of my worries; the real problem is making this even close to being balanced. Right now there's a handful of characters that completely destroy all others.

Uh... do you need help with sprite editing? Is that Shang Tsung with a purple vest on, or is that Rain unmasked?

I know my spritemaking skills are lacking compared to others, but on the plus side, my crappy Shaolin Monks/Armageddon Reptile was rated only .5 lower than Arctic's masterpiece. Either way, I'm content to sticking with my own stuff for now.

It's Reiko, by the way. I need to slow down the timing for I can take better screenshots, but he just performed his Power Kick Fatality.

Strangely enough, back when I started working on Anthology, I had originally planned to add the "characters" exclusive to this Pirated Famicom game:

1. People here are idiots when it comes to ratings. They'll give anything a good rating.

2. Uhh... Reiko, eh? Please, let me help. This project looks interesting, but you need good srpties. I'm not the best, but I can do a bit better.

Well anyway, I'm working on a video, so maybe within the next week some opinions will form on gameplay.

I didn't expect to get raves about the initial screens, but I didn't expect the response I got, either.

Actually, I'm not sure I can help, unless I can get my hands on a good art program. We just got a new computer, I'm stuck with paint. I know that's a bad excuse for not making good fakes and stuff, but I'm just not good with only paint.

Here's the best I could come up with. Yes, it sucks. But look at the head. Use an edited Sub-Zero.

That Reiko is brilliant. I used MK2 Reptile and MK3 Shang Tsung. Yours... is totally awesome compared to mine.

I just have never had any real artistic talent. If you ever see my Fanart Central profile, it's full of a absolute crap.

What a joke for a fake. I can tell you used Paint to make this fake, but even still the transparency effect for Rain isn't as good as it could've been.
Also, you should've pasted Johnny WAY closer to the kick shadows. .That's the way it looks in the games. Also, why use different games' sprites? They look different sizes, and the lifebars are way up.
And what's the point of the fake? Chameleon isn't doing all that much, you should have a little more action, like a fake fatality or something.


hehe. Sorry, I had to.

I may hate Arctic with every bone in my body but his sprite editing is 1000 times better than yours.


Anyways if you need help with the story that's where i shine if you want to check out some of my work look for my idea in the future mk games discussion(please mods dont give me a skull point for advertising my thread i only did it so he could have some reference to my skill).
