Shadow624 Sprites

News Post New Entry

Some Announcements

Posted by Shadow624 on November 16, 2014 at 5:25 PM

Hello there everybody. It has been AGES since I last posted a new update on well... anything. So it seemed appropriate to finally write one out since I have some stuff to say. Although it's nothing big, at least in my opinion.

First and foremost, Cackletta's Return is cancelled for the foreseeable future. I honestly doubt anyone will be too upset as I haven't made an update or made any progress on it in over a year. Plus if you've been to the Cackletta's Return page on the site, it's flat-out said it's been cancelled for around 4 or 5 months. So I'm sorry if this disappoints anybody, but yeah. I just don't see it happening. I'm not going to try to kid myself anymore. I'd still like to do it, but yeah don't expect it. 

Secondly and probably the biggest news on here, I asked if I could help with the Smash Bros Fangame, Super Smash Flash 2 over the summer and was finally excepted a few weeks ago. My special effects will be appearing in its next major update. Not sure what version of it they have out now, but they'll be in the next update of it. Unfortunately, they have me under an embargo where I can't show the stuff I make or release any intel about the developement of the game. I'm not really 100% sure why, but whatever. It's what they want me to do/not do and I was welling to accept that.

Alright so Dream vs. Dream... Dream vs. Dream hit an absolute point of nearly no progress in the summer. I'm not really sure what happened with the developement team, but yeah. I was the only one who seemed to be working on it for awhile. The team seems to have gather themselves up and began working again though. I wouldn't expect any major update/patch for it for a while. Maybe the beginning to the middle of 2015 we'll add a new character out and about to download. I think I'm like the only Yume Nikki fan on here, so if you don't think it's a huge deal, I'll completely understand.

Moving on to A Just Endeavor, not much to say to be honest. Vid and I haven't do a whole lot on it for a little while now. Well actually, I haven't. Vid's been doing stuff. We're slowly preparing and filling out the character Bios on the AJE page. Other than that, we've opted to change the style of the character sprites for battle sequences to something a little simplier so it's easier to work with. I myself still need to buckle down and finish that up at some point. 

And lat but not least, Battlefield of Prayers. I don't know when I'll ever get around to it, but I'd really, really like to at some point. It's a little more my style than CR since it requires no logical plot and is just all fighting and special effects. I have ideas in mind for. One of them is obviously the inclusion of Sakuya, Marisa, and Tenshi. Other than that, I wouldn't be able to explain anything else. It's a big fight after all. 

Well that's all from me for now. I thought I'd get some of this out of the way since I haven't really made a legit news entry in like forever. One other small thing I'd like to say though, I will be buying the rights to the domain again this year to keep the bandwinth size. Well that's all. Later for now.

Still a little disappointed in the cancellation of CR, but such is life. Maybe the stuff we do can give you more inspiration to start it up again once you've finished up with all your other projects. Anyway, I'm glad that you and vid didn't cancel A Just Endeavor 'cause I've started to get really hyped for that behind all the Nintendo stuff recently.

Hope you don't feel too bogged down with your projects dude, and I hope still have fun doin' them too!

You seem to start every entry off like that... :P

In any case, I'm looking forward to eventually playing DvD, and I'm always looking forward to updates on AJE, as infrequent as they may be, especially to the characters page.

Yeah, I don't think anyone will be too upset about CR being cancelled, it didn't really progress enough to really get people hooked. Would you consider posting what you have on it though? I was personally really impressed with what you had, even though I'm kind of retired from animating. That reminds me, I don't think I ever formally cancelled SSBX, but eh... I think everyone forgot about it anyways. Most of the other stuff you've already told me about... But again, congrats on the Smash Flashing and good luck with the Dream Vs Dreaming.

Yeah, I haven't been able to make as much progress on AJE as I'd have liked to. Personally, I blame college. And Smash Bros.And other commitments. But mostly Smash Bros. I'm hoping to have an update ready for the AJE page around Thanksgiving though. But yeah, I suppose we'll have to have another one of our AJE centric chats again sometime.

@Vid I actually haven't made any other progress outside of the loading screen which I posted to my dA account I don't know how long ago. About SSBX, I had always assumed you had cancelled it. In general, you don't really talk about animating at all anymore.

It's kinda sad really. All the Hatena is out of pretty much everyone.

I've actually been working on a sprite animation for a little while now. No idea when it'll be out, but I still very much enjoy animation.

@Shad I thought you had some parts done with Fawful and the Bros leaving their house? Though I guess those were from before you decided to restart it. And yeah, it basically is cancelled. I really wanted to make it, but then things became way too busy with my life and there were other things that I wanted to do with my spare time... :-P Maybe one day when I've got less on my plate I'll make a short series, but for now, AJE and other things are what I want to finish.

Well at least you and me that I can think of off the top of my head.

Yeah I saw the news in the CR page, but didn't feel like making a fuss about it.
It really is a shame that you won't be getting back too it, because it would've been a real adventure in my opinion. Heck cycoles would've sell me big time, but I'm not too let down because the plot barley started. Heck it would've been more insane if cycoles butt heads with merlow, battle of the deadpool rip-offs, I would like to see that at least. But I digress.

I've been busy too with class as well, but I won't be thrown off that easily.

Vid-: I haven't forgotten about SSBX, and I thought it would be more interesting when you got to link on hatena, but I understand your thoughts about it leading to more plot holes. I have/had a similar idea for a series, but thinking about plot holes, this might be a cluttered series to even do, but I plan to mention about it on my Dev page (after my next battle is done, and I attracted more fans).

OS & CT: do you have a third seat? Because I'm trying to make difference too with animation.

Shad: Its sounds awesome your working for SSF2. BTW how do I access DvsD? I might want to check it out some day.

I guess it was inevitable...
I'm still planning on dong something myself but I never really do anything to be honest
someday it will happen.. I hope, its hard for me to ever get the motivation to ever do anything
