  1. Defold powered by King? Since when is this engine a thing?
  2. I made the red devil thing they are using as a sorta mascot right now, I was browsing Spriter steam community hub and noticed they were using it as an icon, then came here and saw it in the sale banner up there, then remembered spriter 2 announcement and thought "damn, they need a better mascot for that", so I made this little char for funsies. This is NOT official in any way, shape or form (should not have left spriter logo in there in retrospective), consider it a software-tan or something lol. Wanted to use their idea of a sprite pixie thing (because spriter) but also make it look
  3. Got it to get spriter on steam, now I have 2 licenses :O SpriteLamp was kind of nice too, besides that can't find use for anything else on the bundle
  4. You guys really really need to fix the forums. These spambots are ridiculous, it's imposible to tell what's new content and what's a post from 3 years ago that got bumped by a bot. At this rate, it would be better to merely use a freeforums.net service, since the bots seem to have driven all the posters away.
  5. De la palabra que google no tradujo asumo que hablas español. Para que el rectangulo de animacion sea siempre el mismo en todas las animaciones, yo lo que hago es poner un par de cuadrados en dos esquinas opuestas en todas las animaciones, asi cuando exportas la animacion el rectangulo es definido por estos dos cuadrados. Luego, hago una accion en photoshop para quitar los cuadrados de todas las framas automaticamente.
  6. Hey man your work is amazing as always, I wonder if you could please make a short video about how you set up a skins project in spriter. I know that skins are experimental and all that yada yada, but your work really makes me want to give them a spin but I can't even set up the file properly ( I can't even get a skin to follow a bone, for starters). A simple video or even a simple text step by step guide on how to set up the images will do.
  7. I have begun working with Spriter again and have been for the past month or so, and I a renewed view on spriter. These are my biggest nuances currently with spriter: -What's the logic behind having to rotate images counter-clockwise so they will be scaled properly inside spriter? I have to say that this is not intuitive in the least, at least for the end user. -The stepping on scaling a bone when dragging with the mouse is way too big, making subtle scaling animation a chore to do. -Why every time I key a bone, it also keys all it's children? This really breaks my workflow since I constantly h
  8. Constraint Relaxation IK seems to be working well and it's really good. I'm guessing this was the reason spriter was going unresponsive for long periods every so often. Onion skins still disappear when making any change in the current frame, this also happened to me on B10, making onion skins nearly useless.
  9. Do either Lucid or Mike have my files of the plant girl and the mantis? I lost them along all my other spriter stuff in a hard drive that passed away by the end of last year. You could give iccurd those so he can do his testing, assuming they are still compatible with the current spriter build. I know iccurd from over the gm forums, and have learned a lot from his examples, support him all you can, since currently spriter needs all the help it can get to catch up to the competition.
  10. I tried to reproduce it but wasn't able to. The images that got overwritten where only the faces, as you can see. Usually, for such things, what I do is copy and paste one of the existing files, rename the copied file to match the naming structure and then edit the new copied file in my painting program, then hit the update button on spriter. I have always done that and this is the first time spriter goes and overwrite a bunch of files, and spriter went and overwrote the files when I saved the project. Needless to say I'm gonna back up all my images before saving from now on, better safe than
  11. After a couple days of working in a character on v8_1 (latest stable) spriter decided that it didn't like my images or something and decided to replace half of them with it's "missing image" placeholder. Update: Spriter decided to be a jerk and overwrite a crapload more files. The first letter on these stand for profile, unlinke the previous ones where they had an f that stood for front, so no, this is not a case of renaming files outside spriter; this is another folder entirely that spriter decided it didn't like. If it helps in anything, the files that got overwritten where only ones that
  12. Thanks a lot for this, still barely learning the basics of construct and this should be a lot of help.
  13. I had the activate pro issue with b5.92, deleted it and installed b5.925 and it went away. B5 has remained activated all the time. I'm on win8 64 bit
  14. No. There are many scenarios where you would want a part only on the current frame, while pasting on all is mostly for when you failed to set up your character properly before starting to animate. Ctrl + + is there for a reason.
  15. Worked with it for a couple hours and never crashed, tried all the new features except skins with no problems. Performance went up a little bit too, 11 fps from the 7 fps on b5.9, but still far from the 20 fps on b5.
  16. I was studying the files from the Ryu and I say it was very smart the way he generated the normal map. I must admit I didn't understand how normals worked, I thought they where these magical things that only 3D software could make, after reading about them on polycount and seeing this example on how the channels are mixed I can say with confidence that I could paint some pretty good normals without needing sprite lamp. I wish the people from sprite lamp would post the normal map for the goat and the plague doctor on their kickstarter, since the software seems to do little more than auto mixin
  17. Display pivot X, Y when rendering PNGs This is a big one, in my current project I have been asked to rendered to png, and the issue I have is that I don't have a way to know where the pivots are for the rendered images, so this is gonna lead to a lot of guesswork and wasted time. My suggestion would be, either show me where the pivot X and Y would be in the rendered images on the Export dialog, or have Spriter output a .txt file with the coordinates in relation with to the trim rectangle. My problem is that I render pieces separately ( mask the character with a magenta character map, render th
  18. I understand your decision and will do my best to test the new features/releases. Some of my tests of new features. Copy Z-order to other frames: Works well. Could you add the option to Copy Z-order / Paste Z-order? sometimes I just want to rearrange the Z-order on a few frames and this doesn't help in that. Scale project: Works well, this was a much needed feature for those intending to buy or sell assets. Skins: Wow just wow, these are awesome, can't wait to see them implemented in real time in construct of something. Haven't tested them beyond messing around for a little while. Copy/paste p
  19. My rat file (the one I sent you earlier) crashes the program A LOT, literally I can open the file view a couple animations and it crashes, this was made with b.5. All my older files crash the program after viewing a couple animations, they where all made with b5. Here's another file that crashes the program after changing animations a couple times http://www.sendspace.com/file/zf2hsx I tried making a new file and make a few random animations and it worked well for the 15 minutes I did it, made over 30 random animations, used bones, image changing, etc and saved the file, when loading this file
  20. Trixtor that looks balls awesome. And the cell shaded example you posted, with sprite lamp that would be easy as hell to do. Maybe next year when sprite lamp is out we can make a small game to show off this tech with spriter in a more complete way. Misj, the reason there aren't many examples of 2D art using normal mapping is simply because it's too hard to generate a decent normal map from a 2D image with current tools. if I needed to make a good normal for a 2D image I would need to start by painting an height map, then taking that height map into zbrush to develop it further and then output
  21. Ok getting back to suggestions for Spriter. How about some VERY primitive drawing tools inside spriter? A pencil, eraser and bucket tool would be enough. This because sometimes I'm missing a part, or a part needs some modifications and it's usually very hard to know how to make the missing part/make modifications when working with isolated parts in another program. Having some basic drawing tools inside spriter would allow me to sketch a new part/make modifications, see it on the animation on the fly, and then go to my graphic program to make said part properly.
  22. b5.9 seems more resource intensive in general than b5, not only the framerate loss I mentioned before but it also tends to hangs for a few seconds every so often (window turns gray, get program stopped responding windows message, generally higher CPU% use), this seems to happen when working with the timeline and it seems to be triggered when it draws the curve graph. When working with the timeline, the curve graph will appear and make the keys under it unselectable, this is very annoying. Good work on the redesigned timeline, it's much more clear which keys belong where now. Copy pivots, past
  23. All links are 404. Looks nice, shame I can't see it in action.
