You clearly dont get what im trying to say... Its fine... and All the games do not look un professional, Blue Chrome actually looks professionally done, machalite wasn't bad either.... look at those projects n re evaulate this project
I didn't say all of them.. i know for sure some of them don't but really, most of them seem to..
And I've done that hundreds of times.. I do it all the time. We're just so slow -.-' And to tell the truth, most of the people that should be spriting, don't really give a crap. *shrug* I guess no one likes a crappy game.. only if it's visuals are good, then the game is good.
One thing we're trying to get done is actually a HGSS battle script.. it's still being worked on. Haven't talked to the scripter for a while. :/


And, er.. what's fine? I know for sure this game is not fine if people still think the fakemon are horrible.. (some are being redrawn, anyway..)

If criticism is an insult for you... Then, I think you're only interested in the good comments. In which case you can go on to create a crappy game. Being in here for long or not doesn't make much difference imo.

I'd say how you could improve those fakemon, if I could understand what they were.
They hold no similarity to the actual Pokemon. In some cases this can be good, this certainly isn't the case.
The green one in the banner looks like a bald guy with a pony tail sticking out of his head. And the pony tail is too jerky.
The blue one looks like a guy with a horrible goiter, and a fractured leg... The tail looks like it's stuck to it's leg.
The orange one is a little better, but it doesn't look like it is shaded properly. It's backside is way to straight...

I do like the concept art, but the sprites are HORRIBLE

Rules want you to have a plot. That thing doesn't count as a plot. That imo is a lame excuse for a plot. You can prevent spoiling the plot, but little details don't spoil anything... I mean I can't even tell whether there are gyms or a league?
Well, coating everything with "horrible" and "lame" doesn't really help me feel like I can do any better. I mean, you're giving me critiques and yet you're saying it like we're sucky artists... We're all trying. if you couldn't tell I'm already in a bad mood, and you don't see me calling everything horrible.. Understand what i mean? It's great you found something wrong but it's best to help rather than insult. It's not critique unless you're tellng me how to do better. The word "horrible" is taken as an insult and I'm pretty sure you already knew that.
Not to mention a lot of those sprites are being redone. They're old. That blue one was actually one of my first, I think..
And there's only a couple of sprites, so..

The plot is foreshadowed and I was planning to write it up later. If this didn't cross as a plot I have no idea how it got into the forum, lol..
Whatever, thank you for your critique or whatever you want to call it.

I'd just point something out... And I'm referring to your reply to King earlier.

It's the game play that makes a game... Not the graphics themselves. Maybe the graphics may make you go "WOW!" for the first 20 minutes, but after that without decent game play, your game is screwed. That's why we love playing Pokemon, it may have horrible graphics but it's the concept that we love.
When I first looked at it, I couldn't find either the graphics good or the game play (plot)

I'm sorry if I had offended you with my choices of words. I just posted my first reaction to what I saw.

Ok |D I'm sorry if it was like I was blowing up on you..
Just.. make sure you leave critique.. or else it just sounds like an insult..!
Yeah, I know, that's something I left out D: Gameplay and plot are important..(we actually haven't named the evil team in this one yet XD I have yet to talk with the Mapper) Our plot is interesting but we left it out.. I wrote this a long time ago, like an idiot.
I'll try and get it up soon. -.-'

If you go to her deviantart, the actual drawings look very good, but Malachites Pokemon are a bit avant garde, but they're my favorite fakemon because of that, and the malachite sprites are excelent. Just make sure the sprites match the Pokemon is all. And your partially right as well, the plot is the hook that excites people to play the game, and maybe the evil team could be more of a unorganized band of rebels, that gradually gain power, insted of cold organized crime. And Mr Ck, you took it a bit too far.

I apologized because I realized I was being cocky :/

I do agree, it's the spriting style that didn't please me. The art she has linked in the Fakemon section actually looks pretty good.

Now that the sprites are being redone, I'll hope they're better. And good luck.

Well, here's a much better concept of Flareleo..

Spoiler:


Seems that a lot of my buddies on deviantart think so, too XD
I hate the old one.. -replaces-

Thanks!
We have quite a lot.. their listed on Opal's deviantart group.. but to tell the truth, only one of them has really made a contribution in like, the last month. Everybody else has either never done anything or just don't care.
I guess I should kick a lot of them out.

Well I updated the sprites.
The flareleo one was a bit blocky..(sorry to that spriter)



Definitely not my best but Flareleo and Boatt may be better than the old ones in the banner..

I like Flarleo's Sprite, but I liked the Original Boatt sprite better, it just seems more energetic.

I was pretty much forced to change it because too many people were saying it's arm was deformed and it was really getting on my last nerve.

I just went through hell trying to upload one tiny little picture because my computer is a slow idiot.
So if you want "extra fur" you'll have to wait a while.
Like, a long while. D:

I'm working on a new concept right now, because some people did sketches but never got to color them, while some of my fakemon here are just sucky. XD

No, Ace, sorry D:
not all of them, no.. but some of them.. I replaced the ones that weren't very creative..
well, just one.
The unnamed red panda. It's number has been replaced by Cumufeli.. .Cumufeli's old number was replaced by an upcoming evolution.
This is the new one.

Churisuto.


A lot of the colors were pale, so the internet messed up how they really looked.

Flareleo is looking adorable :3

I personally do like the new Boatt... (unless you changed it before I have seen it) It's a little more Pokemonish imho.
(It might look better with modifications, but I'm just saying that the new sprite is looking better than the old one)
You might want to take more opinions.

If your spriters aren't working, you should dump them. There are many enthusiastic artists on PC.
If you want to work on your sprites on your own, you certainly are improving

Sorry about seeming a bit rude there, caused by an event that happened earlier today. But it is a bit rude to be asking for workers in somebody elses thread. I don't mid giving you a hand in starting up your game.

haha, yeah, I have a thread up on the recruitment thing, so there's really no need to. I'm sort of a n008 myself so I don't know any good mappers.
Ima go stalk the team recruitment thread, lol.
