Aight, the first boss theme is up!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT21ViuRV9s



Decided to show off a sprite to a future custom boss that I'm calling the Stone Manticore.  After learning so  much from CoA and Optomon I'm enjoying the freedom that I can have within a certain space.  Sure things will have to be adjusted in time to cope with whatever walls that are hit but never have I expected to be able to go quite far in something like this :)

Are you going to remix all the CV legends music for this project? I'd like to hear 'm all  :)

No money necessary.  Freeware will be freeware :)

Not all but some of the better ones will be remixed by the guy that puts these together for reference tracks named nesfan.  You can watch his stuff here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXR9KhOI3ZNwf0ygvqS3JVA/videos

Before I start doing other stuff today here's a few sprites I'm working on.  Custom bosses for RoD :)





The Stone Manticore and the previous color set I have which I almost had it a Fire Manticore.  I know there are too many colors for Dracula's head but I know of a cheap trick in the YYCHR to make this happen  ;)

Dracula looks cool! It reminds me of his Chronicles counterpart.

i think i may have an idea on how you're doing that. dracula's head was a separate sprite from the rest of his body in the original cv3, but here you're using the black, red, and white from the body sprite and then doing the megaman trick of overlaying the face's blues on top of it.

Thanks!  This form is modeled after Chronicles in the Arranged version :)

Don't know of the Megaman trick as I have not touched any of them though you are correct.  Was going to do this for CoA but due to a golden palette that Sephirous chose I decided to toss out that idea as the golden eye thing didn't look well for that form.

the megaman trick is essentially what i described, layering sprites on top of each other in order to use more colours.

Aight,  understood :)


Shameful for me to say this, I never played any of the Megaman games as I was more into Metroid and Zelda back in the day lol.

Sephirous once told me that there were areas in the prayer scene that were not capable of being edited.  From changing certain sprites around think I found the exact spots that he was talking about.






On the left is my mock-up intro to replace the prayer scene.  Still working things out as nothing is final as I still have to slide stuff around in the YYCHR for things to fit.  On the right is the area with the yellow circles showing the spots that cannot be changed apparently.  The amount of frustration this brings is very irritating.  Whoever joins me for doing the in-depth programming I'll  have to see if they can change this so my mock-up screen can become a reality someday.

It is a shame really, as your mock-up screen intro looks awesome!

Thanks though I'm still not done with it.  Going to finish it after I fit the castle into the data via YYCHR :)

Update time on RoD.  Its not much though I'm showing everyone that stuff is back on for the project right now.


Fixed some stuff in Stage 1.  Gave it a tad bit more environment by adding a mountain range in the background.







I know people are wanting to see Stage 2 completed let alone the beginning works for Stage 3.  Had to go back and make adjustments so things would hopefully feel like they are popping out more.

Other than that, I'll be working on the title screen to input it in and once that is done I'll send the game off to Sephirous so he can fiddle around with the prayer screen while I work around with Stage 2 and 3 sprites :)
