When it comes to themes one thing I really have a hard time figuring out is how to calculate the angles of slopes.

There was some online tool posted around a year back or so IIRC. Wouldn't it be good to have this as a sticky in a separate Tools forum?


if you have two different sides you can calculate.
use the tangent (Tan)

the hands and feet are too big, The legs are thin, like surge and charge.
I think it's a good design, but not done yet.

=======================================================

And now with the neon designs of race the hedgehog

I do not know why, but it does not feel good!

ssdw, Charge looks too mean to click on... I ain't clicking that... I don't think those claws feel too nice through your gut....

I agree, it looks very strange.
I'm going to continue to work with it.

The remix looks much better, I think.

it's different, but better?

See the difference:
sonic fan remix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVAr6oX8to0
sonic 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCVVNweZLDU

This is indeed a fun game.
like sonic 4.

Hmmm.... I think GIMP might be able to do something like that. I think it may be at Filters->Animation->Optimize or Optimize for GIF .... one of those maybe. You can also reduce the quality a tiny bit of each frame.... usually unnoticeable. I'm sure some GIMP tutorials mention it... many have run into this problem, so it's more likely that such a thing is available in GIMP, even if only as a plug-in.

I'm going to try ginp, I'm still looking for a good program.
I had now made several frames and merged into one gif file (hence the large).
thanks smile

It might also be easier to work with if it's traced over as an SVG... at least I think it certainly would be in terms of animation.

it is an avatar, it must be a png, jpg or gif file.
since gif moves only, I think the choice is clear.

The load screen is displayed only a few seconds.
I think a loading bar or anything that moves does not seem nice.

the "now loading" can't be translated at this time because it's a fixed image in the images/ folder. we can probably improve this.

is it a future plan?
or in the future, this picture is replaced by another? a load screen?

it must be in British English? quality spelling and grammar I know a lot more (it's easier than my own language).

is it better to ensure that the game can be fully translated? I mean everything.
For example, the score, time and rings (in play, see top left.).
but also the "now loading ..." and the text at the bottom of the menu.

0.1.4 was never fully translated!

that looks good.
is that menu a object or do you have made it in the source code?

maybe you could make other regions of his face move as well in order to make it look more natural.

now i use 3 images, perhaps I should use 4 or 5 images.

Try to move his eyes a bit as well.

what would they do?
what movement?
