and than each member can go and work on the char they want (*hint* joho, werewolf)

I think its better if you and Arcane would focus on the general (3 forms of a rather difficult concept is a lot of work) and after that, there's also the main villain.. Don't forget that you'll be gone in some months and we might not be able to do these sprites without you Ariel.

As for Louis:

Strenghts:
- Armor
- High jump
- Strong run attack
- Strong dash attack
- Can do multiple dashes while holding a weapon

Weaknesses:
- Speed (punching, running, special moves). All his moves are easy to dodge, which basically means he can only go for the head-on approach, in which he's inferior to all others. Besides, his moves are easy to counter (except D^J, but its slow enough to dodge if you're skilled)
- He has no decent counter attacks
In other words, face him head on and you'll win (that's why he loses so often :p)

I think he needs:
1) a better counter attack (still slow, but with added defending state maybe) OR a special weapon so he can attack from a longer distance (Louis with a weapon can be rather dangerous ;-))
2) an AoE attack

- Counter idea: charged punch (slow, but he can have a defensive state in the charging frames and the punch deals good damage). I'm sure this would fit nicely for Louis. Some green charging effect and a long swing for maximum input would do the trick.
- Weapon idea: Something like this but smaller. He shouldn't be swinging it, he should go for stabbing unless used in jump attack and dash attack. I think it should be either a sword or no weapon at all (no weapon has my preference, but I'm mentioning it because it would help balancing Louis out)
-> This eliminates the problem that Louis has no choice but going head-on and almost always loses this
- AoE idea: I'm blank.

Edit: his run attack and dash attack are usually referred to as 'thunder punch'. How about a shockwave move as AoE attack?

As for the other attacks:

- Laser beam: I personally don't like the idea for this character. I think it doesn't suit his look and moveset, especially as he's a generally slow character.
- Shoulder bash: this could be a good move for Louis. I still have some objections however: Louis already has his flying kick move, which does basically the same thing, which is enough reason for me to be against it. Apart from this, Mark has about the same move..
- Shield that follows him: I'm not sure if I like the idea or not, but this might work for Louis in both terms of gameplay and character style.

Please share your opinions on the suggested moves for Louis (and eventually bring in new ones) :)
Feel free to use materials made for LF2 extended, such as the sprites for Daniel. You can choose to continue it or to use the sprites for a new character. You can find the subforum for LF2 extended under 'projects'.
