Awesome pony fighting game Feb. 10th, 2013 @ 08:02 AM

Awesome Pony Fighting Game.
This will be an open source 2d pony fighter game with original characters.

HERE IS THE LICENSE SITE https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

All code will be released under GPL.

Do not use copyrighted characters,locations or anything else that is copyrighted. Use only assets that are under Creative Commons Attribution CC BY.

Step 1

The Art
http://ddhyuugaman.deviantart.com/art/Mane-6-Angles-Critics-
Edition-343651116

Here something I commissioned. The SVG files are broken but someone is working on fixing it.
We will create original characters using this.Use Inkscape to make vector art.
After you have created the art in Inkscape port it using the SIF exporter extension for Inkscape http://www.synfig.org/cms/en/download/tools/

Step 2
How is this game going to made?

Sprite animation

We will be using the Linux version of Synfig a free and open source software.Here is the latest version http://download.tuxfamily.org/synfig/packages/binaries/ . There is a windows version available at synfig.org but its dated.If anyone willing to port the Linux version to windows it would be awesome.Here is a tutorial on how to make sprite animations using Inkscape and Synfig http://blog.gemserk.com/2012/03/16/building-2d-animations-us ing-inkscape-and-synfig/

On a side note it is also important that this person's Indiegogo campaign become successful http://www.indiegogo.com/dmitriev-lgm-2013/x/181218
He is responsible for creating the Stickman template we will be using for this project. Here is tutorial series for the Stickman http://morevnaproject.org/2012/02/01/stickman-tutorial/

Also here is a tutorial for creating good sprites http://gamasutra.com/view/news/176663/5_tips_for_making_grea t_animations_for_2D_games.php

The Engine

For the game engine we will be using the the free and open source Fabula Game Engine.http://fabula-engine.org/
We will need to port the code from an open source fighting game engine under GPL.
I VOTE WE PORT THE ZERO2D game engine
http://www.zero2d.com/community/portal.php

Goal

Animate a Walk Cycle Using Synfig
Make Pegasus Fly(Annoying.)
1 Magical Attack. Fireballs from Unicorn head.
Idle animation.
Jump Attack.
Animate a trot and run cycle.

What we need

Programmers
Vector Artists
Thats it.

Current Time-line.

We currently have to wait for the next stable version of Synfig.You can make the process faster by helping them.Go here to help http://www.synfig.org/forums/
They need Developers, packagers, bug testers, translators, artists, web developers, wiki writers... you can contribute!

We also have to wait for the SVGS file to be fixed and for a new improved version of the model sheets.
The Stickman improved version with character template is not released so we have to wait for it.Here is how it looks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9d9a0zX5tg&list=UUIj2iF-1v_
YdpO_hpLgmp4g&index=2

After the improved Stickman is released we have to make a Stickman for 4 legged creatures.

Things to do right now.

Someone has to port the code from zero2d to the Fabula Game Engine. Any takers.

The ability to dock un-dock Synfig windows is important.We need someone to program it.

A pony creator like thing for Synfig to store all the assets is also important. http://generalzoi.deviantart.com/art/Pony-Creator-Full-Versi on-254295904 .We also need someone to program something like that.

Whats the gameplay.

You will chose to be either earth pony, Pegasus or unicorn.
You are on an isometric square(by square I mean the shape square).

There is an NPC you can talk to and an earth pony.

Go to the earth pony talk to her then their will be a scene transition like Pokemon.

The game will now switch to fighting game graphics like street fighter which are Side-scrolling

.You fight her.

If you lose there will be different dialogue then if you win.

Thats the entire game.

WHATS MY JOB
I commissioned the model sheets. I now have to wait for the SVG files to be fixed and the commission someone to make a more show accurate version.

Suggestions and Questions are recommended since I am lazy.

I'm fairly annoyed by how quickly you burn through the projects that you advertise, which you put little to no work into.
I really do recommend people have nothing to do with anything you're involved in.

Flash costs money. Yeah I suppose you could torrent it does it work with linux using wine? Any way I like HTML 5. This game eventually will have an html exporter so that it could be played on Newgrounds.
I don't want to use propriety software for this only GPL it gives more freedom. For example you the people can go to github and report problems with the game.And since its open the problems are easier to find and fix plus it makes it extremely mod friendly.

Yeah a solution has been found for this problem https://github.com/jubilee145/APFG/issues/14
in the 'assets/stage' folder, rename 'Images' to 'images' (so that it has a lower-case i). I'll fix it properly tomorrow.
Use command ant to build the game.

What do you mean Linux compatibility was an extremely important update.
Here is one of the characters from the game just for fun.

You can update your game progress in your newspost. You haven't had any interest for a long while, so it's getting silly to see you bumping the thread over-and-over.

Here is one of the characters from the game just for fun.

Um, I'm not convinced you own the rights to that pic ...
