CaDan Character Entry
« on: March 23, 2009, 09:16:51 pm »
So, I'm seeking character additions for the upcoming CaDan project. Give some background for your character and sprite/spellname data conforming to the template here:


That is what your entry should look like. For your viewing pleasure, this is another example, except blown up (and for some reason, filtered).

Again. I wants your character's take and a little background. If you want to make a story suggestion, please do so as well (since I've very little in the way of a story). Personalities work well, too.

Bump.

It's almost been a month since I've made the first post. Does anyone want to be included? Is there any interest? Maybe this topic fell through the cracks and nobody wanted to make a post? Does anyone need help in making their profile?

I'd appreciate it if any combination of these questions are answered. The project isn't dead, but I've been busy with a few other projects that are a bit closer to "home" (college club website).

But, for real. There's no rush to produce anything even if you are interested. Because of the lack of input and interest, I've been moving toward filling in some of the other menu items, such as "Results" and "Options" with stuff. Now that I'm on that topic, the "Replay" function of the game will be an official feature. I mean, the archive can't possibly be *that* gunked up with crap, right? (woe be to the ones who try, though)

well my only gripe is that it would actually require me to do the profile myself x.x and I got no idea, not to mention we need to all do the work of drawing stuff ourself and I am not very good at spriting x.x
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Can you make it read a appvar, and we can add ourselves/submit those to ticalc or w/e?

That wouldn't exactly work. The RAM usage is pretty hefty and the storage for all the characters would exceed the RAM limit. Reading from archive would suck in the environment I'm running in.

Actually, I'm more concerned about people cheating by putting in buffed up characters with absolutely no storyline content whatsoever. Whatever is decided for the game, the story *must* be stuck to in order to remain coherent.

The profile is pretty much to help me figure out what to put in and how the story should form. Not all the requirements need to be met, but I need *something* useful.

Even though I'm not exactly working on the project at the moment, sure. I'm still taking entries.

( Took long enough >.< )

Alright. I neglected to mention that the template is as follows, considering that all images are monochrome.

The top left part is a 32x32 "portrait" of your character, which will be displayed during character to NPC (usually bosses) dialog. The top-right corner is the 8x8 sprite that will be displayed during gameplay. The two boxes are spellcard names,  10 pixels high by 64 pixels wide, using the frame provided. The upper spellcard name is activated by hitting the bomb button, while the lower one is activated by holding the "focus" button while hitting the bomb button.

I hope this clears up some confusion. This information wasn't posted with the original post because at the time it was posted, the game was fresh and I expected everyone to have played the game at least once, so they'd know what each component of the image is for.

Also, I'd like to ask for any background stories that might go with the characters. This helps formulate a story that fits their personality or whatever.

Just another shooter by Iambian (CaDan = Calculator Danmaku).  Demo here.  It's a great game.
