I prefer the selection screen in this more modern style, I ended up doing it on YYchr as well.
YES!! YESSHH!!! *Laughs in Dictator*
This is one of two goals! Can you do the World Warrior Portraits?
We need to improve the opponent cycle, so you won't to fight always Chun-Li in first stage.
Take a look on Mortal Kombat II by Hummer: they have a fixed cycle, but the 7th opponent is the Mirror Match.
So if you pick Ryu, 6th stage should be Ryu.
But, creating an exception for bosses:
6th opponent for Claw: Chun-Li
6th opponent for Sagat: Ryu
6th opponent for Dictator: Guile
Yes, I'm making a nod to the SF lore.
