[CHAR] Jamel - John's little bro
#1
[Image: w89nvn.jpg]
Version 1.00


Little background story (Click to View)

Hehehe, me is back ^^ And this time with a combination of Cleric-like many moves and Sharn-like new sprites :P

Jamel is a recolored John with a (at least kinda) complete new fighting system:
Instead simply doing moves, he summons
elementals (Click to View)
which fight for him.
But even more, he uses them as "fuel" for his really powerful spells.
So you don't need mp for a hyper-finishing-move, but elementals, which you have to summon first with mp.

Sounds complicated, huh? ^^

Jamel isn't as easy and simple as the most chars, but exspecially his wide field of abilitys makes him much fun to play.

If you want to know more about this char read this short part of the Readme or directly download him and read the complete Readme ^^

Download link from a seperate filehost:

So, here you get some nice screenshots from some moves of the char ^^

And the always-usual
Version History (Click to View)

And last, but not least:
Due to the char has still some more free space and i don't much char frames to integrate new spells...
GIVE ME A SPELL AND I WILL INCLUDE IT INTO THE CHAR ^^
All what i need is the idea and a precise description (but i will be happy about sprites and sounds, too XD) and if it's makeable i will put it in.

But please play the character before you send my your ideas, maybe it's already in it ;)

Hmmm a lightning... of course, that's a basic spell for every useful mage XD
I will only have to look for some lightning sprites XD

^^


OT:
Yup... he is working on a overpowered, not recoloured Hunter-Version named Ivan.. about 50% of his moves are bombs of different size that mostly are overkills XD


edit: 3 times X D ... I'm, a happy guy XD
editedit: ARK, again >.<

if u sprite stuff ur characters&attacks will look more attractive.ya i know its obvious.

as for me i dont like much modification characters with original repainted spirtes ,unless u do cretive stuff like GBanditEX which 3 or 4 mods of attacking(transformion) or have really interesting data attacks.

am not saying i dont like ur characters . i didnt try those yet.

that was just small criticism k?
You might want to have a look at this thing because data-wise I think he's pretty creative. Bitching about sprites like this is a token of idiocy, you didn't even have to decency to go test it out before whining.

and ps the bandit with 4 forms is BanMe by MSSJSG.



Also to the character itself: confusing as hell to use, still not quite sure what you mean with the spellcasting section, but I really did like some of the moves. The whole elemental thing gets pretty busy pretty fast.

@video:
I only tried to make a simple video once and since it hadn't worked... sprites are enough imo

@sprites:
Would be kind if you could click on the spoiler "screenshots"... you will see some attack sprites made by me there...
After that you could maybe wonder why there are 4 MB ZIPPED of sprites in the download...

Quote:i didnt try those yet.
Yup, i see... as usual i concentrate on making a fun-to-play and sometimes a highDC-char...
So it could be maybe difficult for you to make any rating without even having him downloaded, besides to the sprites...

Yes, it was a criticism, but honestly (no offend) one of the most useless i've ever heard...

(No joke -.- That guy is trying to tell me, that i should make own sprites whereas i already made my best and ALWAYS say EVERYWHERE that i'm bad in spriting... and then he talks about modded chars without good DC are boring, using same for my char without even knowing anything about the DC... whatever rolleyes )

Could you send me a link via PM? then i could tak a look at it, even if i don't think i will able to make a acceptable-looking lightning sprite XD

I told it could be complicated ^^

But the thing is simple if you got it:

Your moves use mp and summon elementals.
If you make a spell via DJA+??? it consumes the elementals ^^

i saw lots of characters with painted sprite and usauly end up as crappy character.am sure his stuff are good.
i know hes great dcer . i tried to download his mod but i give up . it didnt load.

i didnt b*tch or whin. i meant banme. ur were right. banme is pretty neat character.

What do you think why i make that much effort with the tread? Screens, a logo an uberlong text?
To make the people NOT think it's a bad recoulored n00b char...

Quote:I am sure his stuff areis good
Hmmm, your first post seemed to tell me exactly the opposite one...

And i guess everyone knows that good sprites make a character better playable... Would i otherwise take the minor effort to recolor the chars?

I always say i'm bad with making new sprites and tell the people that i only use badic or recolored ones...


Rofl, you downloaded Trio Mortale? Some of the characters were made within 4 hours XD the first are always the worst ones XD

Quote:yes and it didnt work or so and i was lazy.
Hmmm... then either you did something wrong or something with your LF2 was wrong...
The installation instructions in the Readme are pretty easy, even for people without DC knoweledge and i always test my char's installations before uploading them...

Quote:geez all i was saying good sprites make character much better. whats wrong with that.
Jup and that is a thing we all know...
But since you said it again, it seemed like you meant "Hey, a char without good sprites is not good"...

Awww, i know the problem already i guess...
If you have a to big data.txt (to many file entries) LF2 cannot handle it...
Therefore you cannot install all mod at the same time ^^ And since Trio Mortale were 10 characters with some more move files... Combined with another mod that can quickly brake LF2's limit ^^

@Char Display

Since I'm at school at the moment, this post is subject to change. However, I would like to somewhat advise against your current way of "displaying" or posting up about your character, just on a couple of points (if that's ok with you, that is).

1. Please explain exactly how the character works. I don't believe it is necessary to include a "half-readme" as a teaser, or include a teaser in your post at all :D. Just put your readme on the introductory post. I'm pretty sure that it you would gain more downloads that way, because almost everybody on LFE is lazy :D, and they want to know exactly what (in terms of content and quality) they're about to load on their hard drives before actually doing it (especially since they have to do the additional work of copy+pasting the data lines onto 'data.txt' and what-not to start playing :D). I'm pretty sure that even you feel the same way about other released characters :D.

2) Regarding to the logos...they're a bit too big and detailed to serve a logo :D. Now if you call them promotional posters, that's a different story :D. But for logo, the picture should be simpler, and include less... objects :D.

That's about it for now. Will update post after testing this character :D once I get home.

Oh, and about the Character separation and parts. You do know that you can simply wrap all the files up into one archive, and then choose the 'split' option on WINRAR to separate it into smaller files automatically :D.

*Wooh* I had time to test the character!

@Character

Jamel Test:

First off, I would like to say that I'm probably one of the only persons who actually tested this character really thoroughly, and the more I play with him, the more impressed I am! This is by far your greatest work yet! Best creativity I've ever seen (man, I've gotta take a peek at that DC coding)! Even I can't think of something like this (and I'm pretty damn big dreamer :D)! *Whew* You deserve a big @$$-pat on the back!

Good Stuff I Noted:

1) The entire concept of elemental summoning and what-not (it's like a fuse of Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic the Gathering, and Little Fighter 2 :D)

2) The huge @$$-variety of moves!

3) The huge @$$-amount of advanced DC.

4) Your effort. Despite all the other comments, I know it was hella hard coding all of this, and implementing this seeming pipe dream into an actual character!

Note that this is the 4th creation I've tested of yours :D, so I can actually physically see your improvement :D.

Ok, now to move onto the only few criticisms I can find.....

1) Confusing Readme: It's a lot better if you post all the detailed, story-related instructions/description in your introductory post (as I've said above) :D. The readme is for instructions, disclaimer, and contact info only. Include only the practical information (aka just simple knowledge on how to use the character, and leave all the other stuff out), especiallyfor an advanced/complicated character like Jamel :D. This criticism is not really about the character, but how you present it, so please don't take this as an insult :D.

2) Elemental Bugs/Glitches: I know that this is may be known bug/glitch, and that probably there is no possible DC solution to solve it, but the part where all the elementals simply *disappear*, or gets used, and nothing comes out (because not the full amount is consumed, even though they are all present) is extremely annoying, and can really take away the game experience (possibly even under-powering the character :D). Basically, all that happens is that Jamel wastes a ton of mana creating the elementals, and nothing happens :D. You should try your best to fix the bug, even though it may not even be possible to fix it :D.

Overall, if I were a teacher :D, I'd give you 98%. :D Damn good work!
At everyone else. If you are going to download a character created by Alblaka, you MUST download Jamel first and foremost period. End of discussion.

I'll go do my homework now.....
