Why don't you host it in mediafire?It doesn't slow down your download and it accept's download manager such as orbit downloader.
Thanks for new version. Stand on!
Beta 5 is going to kick ass. So many new Characters,bosses and stages! I come here almost everyday to check on the WIPS.
First of all I want to congratulate you for your awsome job.
Now I just have a little unimportant question XD, perhaps someone said it before, but I'm new here, and this is full of post XD
Will you add Shanoa as a chara? I mean... Albus is in there, so it just seem not fair for Shanoa XD
Oh... And, Is there any way you can choose the boss you fight? I think that would be funny.
Shanoa is on the works.
Also judgement has Shanoa but doesn't has Albus...That doesn't seem fair to Albus
>Oh... And, Is there any way you can choose the boss you fight? I think that would be funny.
You can chose the boss via command line,but by normal means it's not possible.
Ok, so my router breaks, I cant go on internet on a laptop, and now I got a new one, comeback here, and what do I find?
A some guy has come onto here and starts spaming something that can only be comprehended as bullshit?
Jesus christ, I need to get stuff done quicker.
On another note, hows everybody doing~?
Basicaly,everyone(almost) is going to the foruns.
After reading a bit in CVstories topic, I've come up with this idea: let's put all the portraits and drawings into a single topic, so we can easily find which one is the most suitable for the game.
Damn, Bongo. That's some fine work. Did you freehand all that?
Second attempt at Drac. Actually did some "bones" under him and took some more time than before. Don't want to ink him until his errors are pointed out.
>>195 Much better, the face positioning and the shoulders are definitely fixed. Tip: try to flip the image horitzontally since when you do it's much easier to spot this kind of problems with the shape (you can always flip it back when you see that the drawing is right. I'm not too sure about this one but the tip of the nose maybe should be more prominent in order to look more European. Now as a personal opinion I think it you should change a bit his eyebrows, not that they are wrong but on the first attempt his expression looked more menacing and evil. Another suggestion would be to make his clothing look more like vedora's Uber-drac, but that's your choice. I tried to be constructive but maybe I wasn't so remember it's only an advice/opinion. Anyways, good drawing, there is a great improvement between your first one and the second attempt.
>>194 Woah, I'm speechless... that is just so awesome!
Maybe we could make a fanart topic on the forums :D
It's almost April you all know what that means......
Jeez, is it possible to set up an anti-ban evasion measure of some sort? :/
nope. i'll probably just set up a regular forum, it'll be easier to keep whiny children like him away from it.
i guess the text board was good while it lasted, but as any board of this type it'll eventually attract spammers and other idiots, and getting rid of them is much harder when they don't have to go through registering/approval.
but didn't you got rid of a forum because it was pointless?
i didn't want to create an environment where registrations are forced, but what happened in this thread and all the spam this place suffered in the past showed, that it's not the best solution.
so, unfortunately it's back to registrations. lol
on the plus side you'll have shiny avatars and signatures if you want, and it won't be possible for people to take your nickname as easily as here.
It's almost April you all know what that means......oh holy God...
That's just wrong place,wrong time mate.. :P
I did approve their request though,VIA INBOX,in fact..
Either way,im sorry if i caused trouble..
They're the ones who used it without my permission so to speak..
And Serio,sorry about all this.. :(
Also,please don't spam here thank you..
They have nothing to do with this..
>>30 Guy, Donoffrio has been polite enough to say I'm sorry when he makes a mistake even when your lack of manners is evident. You know, you should always come in peace until war is declared and not just go 'I'm gonna spam things in this txtboard because you suck because I don't like one of your members' wait... what? ; it is a more mature solution and I'm sure you would have wasted less time and words, you would be happier and you could use your 'spam time' on a more constructive activity, such as... I don't know... juggling!!
Okey, so I created this topic because people began discussing this matter, alas, there was no topic for music, so here it is...
Take it away guys. Suggest music, and if you got an idea who get's which music, then just state it in the matter. :)
Welp, might as well edit it on my own for the listening version. What's the best program for editing OGGs and converting them to MP3s?
Ah, thank you.
Time to start messing around with Audacity, then. I have other tracks that I want to try and make a loop edit for.
Is there any place or chance we might be able to see this theme in the game? Like a theme for a form of Dracula or an alternate theme for his survival mode fight?
Despite many txtboard members and some admins or even Serio himself dislike the idea,"60's movie classic/Dracula X/Vampires Kiss - Black Haired Dracula" seems to be a very nice extra for the survival mode, since Dracula only uses 1 form on it.
>>518 I don't have any issue with a black-haired, Lugosi-esque Dracula, but since CV's Dracula had a wife and son, it'd be a bit weird to see him looking like he's nineteen or something. The age suits the long-time magical warlord thing he's got going.
I know, the Lugosi-esque Dracula would be only a special survival opponent character, maybe with diferent attacks
>>520 and the perfect excuse to use other forms of Drac!
Also, there's Graham and Walter and Somacula and... ok, I cut, but seriously, Graham and Walter are two awesome characters which could be made only for survival. The big difference between them and Drac would be that they would transform into unused Drac forms when the fight gets serious (Demon with Speedo from Dracula X, the awesome twin boss of AoS/SotN) The only problem I see is massive amounts of work for you coders, still this idea can be left 'on hold' until the important characters/bosses are added. Vedora already has some awesome sprites of Walter, btw. I think I already suggested this before so sorry if I forgot about it.
I know Serio already has plans for Somacula being a boss substitute for Dracula in survival mode, but he's already got a theme planned.
I think we can just stick to one Dracula form for survival (excluding Somacula) and just give him Order of the Demon as a theme, or use that in the final battle with Dracula in arcade mode. However, Dracula already has 3 forms in arcade mode, 1 which is a mix of 1 and 3, and Somacula planned, as well as a playable form. I don't think we need to be seeing any other forms of him. I do think that Order of the Demon deserves a place in this, though.
I recently came across with this version of awakening from CotM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FWAJ8Tt99A
Perhaps it's still too much of a stage music but I think it's the best version of awakening out there that we can use for Nathan in Castlevania Fighter
Also, if this was to be used in game I think the beginning should be ommited (so the song would start at 1:02 more or less)
i know many people who would want to chat don't want to download extra programs, so i made a web-based irc chat that connects to the channel for those of you.
just put whatever nickname you want and you'll enter the channel.
note: if you're using opera, your nick will stay online until you close the browser even if you close the tab with the chat, so press the x by "#whatisaman (2) x" at the top to disconnect first.
other browsers don't have this problem.
Starting a new topic since I want to sleep earlier tonight while still providing materials for the game. :x
Here is my slight retool of Julius' boss arena from AoS. I'm more or less finally happy with how the palettes and all the elements worked together. Just use the enclosed "pic" images for reference (ignoring how the clouds are in said pictures) when setting up the parallax backgrounds. For the parallax fast-scrolling clouds, you can choose between using the regular ones (cloudlarge/cloudmed/cloudsmall/cloudtiny) or the scaled up clouds (cloudlarge'/cloudmed'/cloudsmall'/cloudtiny') or mix and match. The rest shouldn't be too hard to figure out. :P

When is the next patch coming out?
When is the Next Character going to be realeased
When do you plan on finishing completely
Have you lost your sanity from all our countless Questions and Suggestions?
If the Next Patch/Demo Comes out soon this will be me:(See Picture)
I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Who knows, it could wind up being Vic Viper or something.
or nothing, since i didn't start working on anything at all. lol
yesterday i was like "oh yeah, 1 month left to april"
Well, instead of nothing you can always give Johny boy a silly hat or something.
Or do something as odd as a Contra character in Castlevania. XD
I was thinking more of a top hat and a monocle
Hi serio i saw on internet that using a sort of patch in mugen (called Infinity Cat) you can play it ONLINE! and i thougt that it would be really awesome play Cv Fighter online .. so it would be possyble use this patch in the game to make it online?
We see alot of Really badly done Never gonna happen joke suggestions but I wanted to know what well thought out characters you guys would want in (not that they would even get in.) Noo this is not a thread bugging for characters to be added, or even to be taken seriously, its intended as a joke for what would be cool to see.
Samus Aran: Metroid
Lets be obviouse this one you all saw comming. Hell she has been requested many times, and is one of the best thought out never join characters out there. Her place is mostly in reference to the many comparisons drawn between Vania and Metroid Since Symphony. While her weapons and style have little place in the series, you have to admit Metroid gave plenty of influence to the Castlevania design crew, specially since some of them are the same people I think. Its interesting to watch as Metroid and Castlevania have begun Taking each others concepts.
Creation: Possible. IT would be possible to put samus into the game, but not gong to happen due to the fact the game is Focus as a CASTLEVANIA not any other series.
Rule of thumb: Jokes are much less effective and funny when expected, especially when someone suggests it right out in the open.
So yeah, no suggesting jokes here. :/
These are not suggested jokes, they are your personal 'what game character, of any series, fits the style of battle' not at all intended as actuall game suggestions. Cv Fighter is for CV only. In fact the only reason I used the word joke in the title was so its not seen as seriouse requests.
>Link. Legend OF zelda
There seems to be a dislike of Link around here, going as far as people referring to him as a "Fairy Faggot".
>Seriously, why is this not in a castlvania game yet? Giant spiders are in dam near everything, yet not vania
This would happen to be in Lords of Shadow. Not exactly a boss, and more of an uncommon enemy though that is a pain in the ass to fight.
Rare Ghost // Castlevania Harmony Of Dissonance (It seem like to be Christmas' even too lol)
hmm so they where finally used eh? out time. Giant spiders are almost always pretty cool boss fights... I mean ones who crawl around the background and attack are almost 2d staple enemies. I mean heck one was in a Mickey mouse game for crying out loud..
Link; I dunno why people don't like him. Yeah his partners get annoying but I liked those games. Like I said his many tools would have plenty of Variety in attack options for boss fights.
Rare ghost: hmmm but it never attacks All it does is see you and run away. Then again... trying to catch the little bugger as it runs around could be fun.. Specially if it has code that access all teh sub weapons. Be chasing it around and suddenly it uses GRAND CROSS or throws a storm of daggers...
