    Spriter 2 FAQ

    If you did not complete the kickstarter crowdfunding, you can consider submitting the Spriter 2: Alchemist plugin to Steam for pre-purchase to raise funds. Perhaps this method is more effective. Many games on Steam, such as Cyberpunk 2077, are Pre-order way to launch.

    Spriter 2 FAQ

    Yes, I was referring to the alpha version of Spriter2... Alchemist specific features will start to appear (also in alpha state, being not yet fully perfected, but ready for testing and feedback from the community) as the Sprite 2 build gets closer to a feature complete beta. I'm responding on behalf of BrashMonkey, LLC, but I'm the artist half of the two man team. The other half of the team, Edgar, is the programmer. We each always work full time (or more) for our company, but much of that full time work is often things other than development, like making business decisions, deals, customer service, etc etc. The amount of required other tasks beyond development varies wildly from day to day and week to week, and much of it is unpredictable as opportunities present themselves, markets shift, and other unpredictable demands or requirements occur. The more there is funding the more we can delegate non-programming chores to outside help and can contract other programmers to contribute to Spriter 2 and especially Alchemist's development. In general the biggest delay in Spriter 2 was making sure it's data format and foundational code was flexible, expandable, and powerful enough to be able to easily 'host' all of the great features we have planned both for Spriter 2 and especially for Alchemist. Basically, the scope of core features and expandability for Spriter 2 grew to make sure we will deliver a truly revolutionary and competitive animation tool, and that demanded a lot of extra and previously unexpected development time. As you likely can imagine, preparing a Kickstarter takes a huge amount of time, as does maintaining the campaign to make sure it succeeds as much as possible, so this contributed to the minor current delay.. but we were overdue for a 'visibility round' and already at less than a third of the way through, the campaign has proved to be worth it. The greater visibility, stockpile of new promotional material, greater internet presence, and resulting support, backers, and potential customers will more than make up the lost time over the following months. Which two apps are you referring to that you purchased on Steam? The only one on Steam that I can think of is Spriter Pro (which of course will get you Spriter 2 as a free upgrade.) Is that what you meant? cheers.

    Spriter 2 FAQ

    Happy New Year! The public beta for Spriter 2 is scheduled for July 2020. We've also been working on a powerful procedural animation and content creation add-on suite for Spriter 2 called Alchemist. We're launching a Kickstarter for it on Friday! Many of the videos we've been posting lately have teased some of the features that Alchemist will offer. On Friday, you will be able to learn a lot more through our Kickstarter campaign. We're really excited to finally be able to show all this stuff off! As a result of the infrastructure to support Alchemist, Spriter 2 itself will also be more powerful than originally planned (and is still free for all current Spriter Pro owners). Alchemist will let you expand Spriter 2 far beyond just 2D animation creation. Learn more Friday!

    Anyone remember Jade Cocoon for PS1? It is the only monster breeder that would calculate values such as arm length, jaw length, eye size and other traits when mixing two monster together. As opposed to reskinning which you would see in the monster rancher franchise... and every other monster breeder. at 2:37 in the kick starter video, you see code just like this at work! Sure, it can be used for human x human. Also, beast x human. Beast x beast. Object x human. Creative freedom... Could spends weeks just sitting there playing around with that tool to see what you can create. I just wanted to give some positive feedback and let you know that is a really cool feature!

    Spriter 2 FAQ

    It's possible the new alpha build will be released by the end of the month, it might be slightly delayed, ironically due to the unexpected extra time required to prepare the Kickstarter campaign. Everything is effected to some degree by funding, and there are several potential factors that could change how much gets done per update, but the updates themselves will still happen. Spriter 2 will have a much better beta build out for July regardless of the Kickstarter, but even Spriter 2 can arrive at version 1.0 faster if the Kickstarter is fully funded. The better the funding, the more man-hours can be dedicated per day on Spriter 2 and especially Alchemist, going from more hours we can work in-house to contracting outside help. There are too many potential and unpredictable factors and other business requirements to be able to say for certain which hours can be spent on what over a long period of time unless large enough funding is raised to guarantee the ability for full-time work. To clarify, Kickstarter campaigns are 'all or nothing', so if the backings don't reach 50k or more by Feb 4th we won't get funding it did raise and the backers won't be charged. We could of course pursue providing an alternate means for the backers to fund Alchemist and reserve the same reward tiers.

    Hey everyone I really should post here more often! I've been making hundreds of characters for my game asset site www.gamedeveloperstudio.com all thanks to Spriter! I'm always in such a rush to get onto creating the next character or game asset design that I never really stop to share my work here. If you've seen my site you'll know I absolutely love Spriter I've been using it for over five years now and it's really helped in creating such cool character animations. I'm really looking forward to using spriter 2! Here's my latest work for the site, it's a forest demon character, If you're creating games and would like to use this character you can find him on my site. Thanks for reading.

    Spriter 2: Alchemist Kickstarter is live!

    Thanks Mike. It’s been a long road since I first purchased in 2013. You may or may not remember I built a plugin for Shiva3D way back when, but then they screwed over their developers and basically died, and it left such a bad taste, that I quit the game development industry. Life has moved on, and I’m now starting again in Unity and maybe Godot. I can see an opportunity to develop a Godot plugin, but I’d definitely need to get a better handle on what features and functionality are coming, to decide whether to commit, so any updates would be greatly appreciated. Hope you get the support you need and can push forward to plan. Russell.

    Nice to see a big list of features. It sounds like a very ambitious project, and probably something needed to differential Spriter from the competition in the current market. I must confess however, it is all quite confusing as to what the end result will be. The ideas behind the control widgets and procedurally generated characters in particular are hard to envisage how this would be implemented in a game development package. It almost seems like you want Spriter to be the game engine. Are the widgets going to be exportable components to be imported into the end user game engine, or are they used within spriter simply to render out generated images to, for example, sprite sheets, or animation states? This is just an example of what is unclear from the Kickstarter page to me, which makes it hard to decide whether to invest or not, and even whether this is all Alchemist functionality, or a mix of Spriter 2 and Alchemist. My assumption is that everything shown is Alchemist specific and won’t be available in Spriter 2 base. It would be good to see some more in-depth examples of specific functionality. Not sure if development is far enough along to do this though. Russell.

    You'll still have access to your Spriter Pro license and you can still use the art packs with Spriter Pro. It's possible we'll eventually make a converter to convert Spriter Pro project files to Spriter 2. It's also highly likely we'll provide discount options for people with the current art packs to cross-grade to the new ones. We won't know for sure until at least a few months from now.

    Spriter 2 FAQ

    The full range of Alchemist features will require a massive amount of work in addition to that required to finish Spriter 2, including additional contracted work to get done. it's not financially feasible to make them all free without additional funding via selling it as an expansion. A successful crowd-funding campaign will help us get there sooner. The better it does, the more features and other value we can add more quickly. The core version of Spriter 2 is befitting from Alchemist development as well. It's now planned feature set has already expanded in scope beyond what was originally planned when we promised it as a free upgrade for Spriter Pro owners.

    Hi Scraggle, There are two separate solutions to these issues.. specifically, to make the overall anchor point of your animations in a new place, choose your animation, hold M while in the canvas, and simply left-click and drag to move the anchor point for the entire animation. Then there is also this feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BpjzYKk-40

    this was me doing it wrong.... I didnt understand the charactermaps example code properly (and probably I still don`t) i used: public boolean touchDown (int screenX, int screenY, int pointer, int button) { if(button != Input.Buttons.RIGHT) player.characterMaps[i] = charMaps[i]; //set the character map to the one saved in maps else player.characterMaps = null; //set the char map to null, to remove it i = (player.characterMaps.length+(++i))%player.characterMaps.length; return false; } but when i changed it to player.characterMaps[0] = charMaps[i]; //set the character map to the one saved in maps everything worked as planned. I then spent a day with a working character map demo and being unable to get the Spriter Player to render within my game logic. turns out I didn`t understand Camera classes properly either so now that`s fixed i seem to be able to completely get rid of spritesheets in my game and the world is a wonderful place again

    Hi everyone! It started as a project for my daughter (she was at the age of about 2). She loved two apps I had on my old iPad - both were animated/interactive scenes. Just tap somewhere and see what happens. She loved it. On my way to find more apps like that, I had a hard time, so I decided to try to make one myself. So, this is it. I did some research, found Monogame, found Spriter, and the great SpriterDotNet implementation from loodakrawa. I love working with that. And although I am not a great artist, I tried my best. As my daughter liked the result much, I decided to actually publish the app now for Android and even iOS lately. I am really amazed by the ease a game can be ported nowadays. In case you want to have a look (all animations and sound-triggers were done using Spriter), here are the links to the screencast-movie and store-links (warning: it's a paid app now!): Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RraciSqa8gM Google PlayStore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.heicompany.nana.camping Amazon AppStore: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B0758F4HST/ref=mas_pm_camping Apple AppStore https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/crayon-camping-adventure/id1397051319?l=de&ls=1&mt=8 Please consider: the game aims kids aged 4 or less. So don't expect fancy achievements or other goals. I didn't even implement any menu, options, or text to read. Kids at that age usually can't read yet. Also, I didn't add any in-App-Purchases or advertising. I really dislike that myself and rather pay for an app. But also I was shocked, that other apps targeting kids claim to be free and are full of that stuff. So, no wonder that nobody really finds my app in the stores - everybody just scans the "for free"-stuff. But that's ok. It was fun making it anyway. In case you're interested, have a look. I'm pleased if I was able to make someone other than close friends happy with it. You all have a great day! And thanks for the great software and as well as the great community! Heiko PS: the mexican guitarrist at the lower left is the only animation done with bones. Whenever I make another game, I plan to use that a lot more. It worked really well! PPS: Happy to ready what you think.
