Team CV3 Dawn of Sorrow Hack
« on: February 04, 2018, 06:38:34 pm »
Not sure why I have not shown this here yet but here is my latest hack.

I had planned on having it released by today but will have to push it back to sometime next week before then because I decided to add some stage modifications and new enemy layouts, what I wanted was to bring a mix between the risky classic platforming from the classicvanias and mix it with this metroidvania so although I was not able to add automatic death pitfalls I did manage to add spikes at the bottom of each of the new layout platforming sections which will be filled with different enemies as well so fancy footwork will be required, you will not automatically die when you hit the bottom but you will regret it like the days of old if you knocked off towards the bottom and hit those spikes which take a great deal of heath.

Regarding the storyline I have made one that takes place shortly after CV3 with Trevor and Sypha just being married and right before Alucard takes his slumber. Also added some new portraits for the characters although I still have not changed the small ones for switching characters, special thanks to Jorge for the Sypha and Trevor ones, the color palette had to be reduced since the game only supports 15 colors (minus the background) so hopefully he is ok with it, if not I will remove them, here is the original page for these images,

the Alucard ones where used from a person named Nakoshinobi and came from here

Here are some images of the game in action.

This is awesome, the portraits feel off how ever. I can't even tell you what's wrong with them.

The portraits are not done by professionals they are fanart so maybe that is why you feel they are off?

Also the Trevor and Sypha ones are done by one guy and the Alucard was done by another, I think they look fine really and its the closest I could find to go along with the characters in the game.

Alucard looks all right, but the other characters look like those vaguely anime-ish homunculi you would always doodle in the margins in 9th grade math class.

Yea there was a filter on, here they are without filters, the Trevor one is from ingame while the other two where ripped directly from tile molester.

Exciting stuff. I didn't like 3's gameplay for stiff reasons, the layout felt like I wanted to like it though so getting it in another engine might let me stress-test that theory.

Not to sound harsh or anything, but the portraits for Trevor, Sypha and Alucard really look out of place.
If you allow me, I would like to suggest some artwork that you could probably use for them:

Trevor:

Sypha:
https://orig00.deviantart.net/55f4/f/2017/219/c/f/sypha_belnades_by_gtneoart-dbj5vxg.jpg

Alucard:

You can also try to go for a "Genya Arikado with short hair" look for Alucard if you are trying to go for the young Alucard we see in CV3, since I feel that's what he would have looked like with black hair in his younger years with Trevor:

An edit of Arikado's portrait with short hair and a slight black cape with red points might do it.

Good ideas, but really I wouldn't care too terribly much if he used the Alucard from Hellsing Ultimate.   :crazy:

I would suggest have characters designed by the same artist for consistency.

This is probably the best way to go about it IMO too.

Regarding the portraits, I spoke to the author of the Trevor and Sypha ones and he agreed to go back and fix those 2 for me since I had to edit them myself to fit the limited palette and size supported by the game, since he plans on doing it from scratch to fit the game's parameters they should come out looking much better, he will also do a Alucard one as well so all the portraits will now have the same look and feel.
