|April Fool’s Day 2019 |
April 1st, 2019 by PrimeOp
As usual on this day, besides the weird index page and main menu headers that only show up today, the update is here to let YOU make a bunch of fakes to show your friends!
The Street Fighter Alpha 3 Vs. screen screenstyles (also found on the separate SFA3 page) now have ISM selectors with X, A, Z and V.
backgrounds added to the various generators: Fatal Fury 2 (Mai), Marvel Super Heroes (Hulk dark and light modes), Street Fighter II WW (Ken, Dhalsim, Vega, Bison), Street Fighter Alpha 3 (Sakura, Vega).
Elsewhere on the internet:
That’s all for now. Expect a few announcements on a day that isn’t known for pranks. Right. So, until then…

|Show and Provie |
February 20th, 2019 by PrimeOp
Today’s update has brand new sprites of Black video game heroes, including a couple of new favorites, the return of a ScrollBoss original, and lots of new content for her section of the site!
– Illmosis Network: Vernacula (one new pose added, 2 earlier updated)
– Combat Core (new separate gallery) Squaz added
– Mortal Kombat: Jax
– Mystic Warriors (new gallery): Brad
– River City Ransom: Provie from River City Ransom: Underground
– Marvel Comics: Misty Knight (improved sprite)
By the way, I’m mad late with this, but huge congrats to MABManZ on Combat Core hitting the Nintendo Switch. Any fan of 3-D arena combat fighters like Power Stone should check it out on Switch or PC. River City Ransom: Underground, of course, remains dope and highly recommended to beat ’em up fiends.
As usual, all new sprites have beed added to the main GFX Generator, where you can make your own pics with a bunch of game and custom-made sprites and graphics.
Info Center – Irritated at the current state of the sections with which she shares a name and also has to help maintain, Vernacula
threatened insisted that the section got some updates this time. New definitions have been added (amazon, arcade, console, Neo Geo, parallax scrolling) and many definitions were improved (crowd control, fighting game, mega crash, palette swap, pro-wrestler, sprite edit), including a few getting new main pictures and support for animated main pics. I also made some improvements to the Info Center code itself and I’ll keep working to streamline it more so I can move more site sections to that format.

|Jill Valentine’s Day 2019 |
February 14th, 2019 by PrimeOp
I added a Valentine’s Day header to the auto-banner rotation thing, and it includes an improved Jill Valentine sprite. It’ll probably be gone by the time you read this, but you can still see Jill’s improved Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stance sprite in the Resident Evil gallery, including the new Resident Evil/Marvel vs. Capcom 2 version that I just made.
Stay tuned, because I’ve got another update coming next week!

|Revamped reviews, Denjin Makai and Battle Circuit |
January 19th, 2019 by PrimeOp
The first update of 2019 has a lot of “finally” like Cece Peniston as I revive a long-dead site section and add fan sprites based on two of the best mid-nineties Beat ‘Em Ups!
Reviews: dormant for a decade, I recoded and redesigned the reviews section (not the index) and modified just about every full review. They’re probably still full of sleep deprivation-induced grammatical errors, but I fixed a lot of the things that annoyed me whenever I saw the pages again. A few reviews were at least 50% rewritten. I’ll probably modify them even more, partially because the thinner page width makes the layout weird. Will I make new reviews later? **shrugs** This is still a work in progress, and the index page won’t look like the old ugly one once everything is done. For now, the Reviews are part of the Info Center area of the site.
Game Index: fixed as many of the review links as I could find and added Denjin Makai II/Guardians. BTW: the page has a list of the alternate ENG language select screen name graphics found in the OBJ TEST. Does anyone know if they appear in any variant of the game?
Sprites: new Denjin Makai II/Guardians page, including uncropped portraits.
Custom Sprites: The Battle Circuit gallery starts with Cyber Blue and the Denjin Makai gallery opens with Makai and Guardians-uniform Kurokishi. BTW: just in case you’ve never seen them, you should check out 2Dwillneverdie to see the Battle Circuit sprites Kiwi made long ago. Masterpieces, one and all.
Mini-logos: Banpresto, Denjin Makai and Denjin Makai II added to new Banpresto gallery.
The new pixel art has been added to the main image generator, as usual!

|2018 Wrap-up and Unfinished Business |
December 31st, 2018 by PrimeOp
One last update in 2018 with a bunch of unused stuff and to set the stage for 2019!
Final Fight: Carlos, Lucia
Marvel Comics: Daredevil, Taskmaster, Mockingbird
DC Comics: the Question
Thanks to actress/martial artist/cosplayer Kimberly Root who came up with the pose during Free Comic Book Day at All American Comics (Warren location)!
Mini-logos: Mockingbird added to Marvel gallery
The Daredevil and Question sprites are in honor of two comic book greats we lost in 2018: Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
My plan to have more videos didn’t work out the way I’d hoped (though the really short Black Panther video turned out nicely), but I’ve put together a video with some unfinished work, including something I’ve shown teasers for in TWO year-end videos.
That third part of the video is a big reason why there weren’t that many new sprites added to the site this year. I spent a bit of 2018 working on animations you haven’t seen yet and, let’s be real, if I show them on this site before I put them in a video, they’ll be in someone else’s video before mine (with no credit). Not that I’m bitter or anything. Truth is, getting ripped off is part of what inspires me to want to make videos. Let’s see if 2019 is the year that I finally start finishing some videos!
Public plans for 2019:
- Animation (and showing it this time) and video. I didn’t show everything in that Unfinished Business video, so some long-percolating animation and video projects will show up in 2019.
- The Revenge of 1989: 30th anniversary edition!
- Bring back the missing Crossup Beatdown
- More prints, including the upcoming custom print program where you get to pick what goes into a one-of-a-kind print. Imagine being able to choose who’s in the 2018 Horror Fighter print, including a customized roster.
More info on that next year!
enough of all for 2018! Thank you for coming through to check out the site and I hope you have a Happy New Year!
