Sprites on the wiki
« on: January 03, 2015, 06:54:32 AM »
So I had this idea about taking the sprite sheets extracted from the game and making gifs out of them. I also had this idea of uploading them onto the wiki for use in the puppet pages. Does this sound like a good idea?

It's quite an undertaking, to be sure, but I believe I can devise a method of making it quick and possibly painless. It'll still take a long while, but it's worth considering. If I go ahead with it, what direction should they be facing? What animation? These are probably obvious questions but I feel I should make sure.
I'm not here.

I'd love to see the sprites on the wiki, I cant animate them for shit (>W<) and I wanna use some of the gifs for stuff.

as for the direction, I figure they should be facing the way they are when you sent them to battle (wish I knew directions) and probably the idle animation will be the best.

p.s-what wiki are we talking about? XD

I've actually been working on animating these already. I've decided to go with the direction they face when fighting against and viewed in the menu. I've been working on 5 Gif versions. 1: standing, 2: attacking (just the two frames), 3: attacked, 4: 1+2, 5: 1+3
I've got quite a few done from requests on a different forum, the forum ones are resized but I have the original sizes in a different folder I've been working on.

Should I upload what I have or once I'm done with all of them?

It would save me a lot of effort.

Yeah I don't mind doing them, just a question on the sizes and what animation? Or should I just upload all the animations and let you guys decided what to use?

The default idle/standing animation is probably the best/easiest for this in my opinion.
Too shy to get anything done, sorry.

I would say use the idle animations for now. If you have time/desire, then put in the other animations. Also, thanks in advance. :3

Gah! I haven't seen you since the LR forums!

Yeah the idles are the easiest thing in the world, the ones that float however are a tad tougher.

Not to step on any toes, but I made a little script using imagemagick to automate this. It doesn't make any of the fancy transitions between idle/attacking, but that could be easily done.

sic it on the spritesheets

Here's the result:

Once again the power of coding saves the day! I was about a quarter of the way done. I noticed all the normal gifs are all 128x128, why is that?

That's how much space each frame is given I assume?
The "big" variants look like the same thing but all the white space is cropped out.
I'd imagine it would have hard for a program to figure out where one frame starts and ends if they were all different sizes.

edit: my english is very bad wow
