Daily reminder to praise the floof!
Wait, wait, wait...This shit is on steam now?
>>34900546>game is on sale currently due to Steam's Lunar New Year sale>still early accessReally, almost two fucking years already? What a scam for the kickstarters
>>34900610...uhYes.For a long time
>>34900621At least 2 years is actually pretty typical for good early access indie fighting games.Fantasy Strike took about 2 years.Slap City is going to take a little over 2 yearsPunch Planet is going to take over 3 years.Pocket Rumble is still technically in early access after 4 years, and hasn't been majorly updated in 3.Rivals of Aether took only 1 and a half years, but was punctuated with a poor and rushed story mode at the end.

>>34905301Well that is some creepy pasta fuckery level
I actually feel the need to practice this time with the tournament. Good show
>>34909118I did about as well as I expected, considering who I was seeded against, but I at least had one surprisingly good round to highlight the day. Everything needs work, though, but that's just how it goes.

>Be dragon main>Choosing a different character for the first time in a qt event that isn't a shitshow>This cursed shit happensIt isn't photoshoped or anything, maybe it's a bug from the game and a funny coincidence, but it felt like she was legitimately pissed because I didn't used her that time, look at that eerie dragon eye judging my sins.
>>34912866She always looks that way, though.also goddammit why did I get matched against Husky and Persona instead of you if you were just going to dick around?
>>34912887Because the whole thing is rigged. You will fight the bad dragon for another 4 months it's already planed
>>34912459Let be honest here.How different would be this if we were allowed to post this in /v/ for a week before forced to stay in /vg/ but at the same time not allowed in /mlp/?How much this general would survive in fucking /vg/?
>>34912954why do you curse me this way
>>34912957It would just get rolled into /fgg/ or /afgg/, but this thread would probably still be here, and people could make semi-regular lobby threads like Unist gets
>>34913007>but this thread would probably still be hereNope the deal is stay in /vg/. Not here because /tfh/ will stop of being pony related
>>34913021Look at the rest of the board, you think anyone really cares?
I wonder how many people picked main/have favorite ungulate not because the said character is based off of the favorite pony. A good bunch of people pick, say, Velvet, because "muh Rarity" and such.
>>34914240Arizona is hardPaprika is FUN
>>34914240I main AZ because "muh unga bunga" instead of my love of Applejack.Pap is my pocket, so far. Really don't like Pinkie though.
>>34914240I used to be a tianfag until the finale. Now I'm a top fluff fag because rarity was the unique pony waifu uncorrupted
>>34905339>>34905339A lot of characters have unique dialogue with each other at the beginning of each round, should they add things after they beat them too?Pic related was inspired by a thread from /v/. I have been thinking up of more of these for a long time; I got a few more domination lines if anyone's interested.
>>34914309You're dumb.You lost, and you're dumb.

I can see why they put them at really low priority.Lip syncing these is probably a bit of a chore and these are definitely not necessary at all, but they are coming eventually.
>>34914240I picked Oleander mainly because she's the most pony-like of the six. Also Twiggy is a pretty gud horse
>>34914354Last we knew, they were coming along with the Super 3s.
>>34914354We already had a update that dropped a bunch of lines though, so we might have already gotten it. Also, all the lines were recorded back in 2016 (or close to that). They said that they want more lines, but it's really expensive.

It is not possible, no anon that lurks this shitty website can be so based. Why? How? Please I want to be like you. Maybe it's time to train and punch niggas as well.
>>34914240As a Flutterfag I would have picked Pom but I don't really like Pom's design so I went with Velvet instead.

It will be a complete beat down, while I try to play a character I don't understand with one hand. Don't be surprised if you see some guy playing velvet with erratic moves some of these days. I'll see if I'm capable of bust a nut like this and still getting the W.

Has anyone tried beating/beaten UNSPEAKABLE difficulty? It took me actually not very long as expected, 1-3 tries to get done with each character as Tianhuo, up to 5 (bear mostly) as Oleander.
>>34921233I've not really touched arcade mode for a while because grinding hats seemed like a better use of my time.
>>34921233I've beaten it once and never tried again, took me 2 attempts as Oleander. This difficulty doesn't test how good you are at the game since the bots just read your every button. Seriously, I had Paprika bot just block my low attack while she was standing, either it is bugged or they do it very fast. Every attempt to engage the AI is a coin toss, the result of which will determine whether or not you will get your face punched by some kind of bullshit move.

>>34932577>is a bacon
Hey I just got this game from the humble bundle. Is Oleander bad or am I just bad? There is no way you can charge magic in an actual fight right? Also, how hard are the ai? I can't even beat easy, while I can handle myself fairly well vs higher level bots in Skullgirls. From what I've seen, this game doesn't seem to have the same anti-chain cc Skullgirls does, so that might be it.
>>34933382AI is fairly brutal for new players, but you'll start beating it once you get familiar with the game.Oleander is good and she can definitely get magic during fights. The easiest way to get is is after a combo, but she can definitely get it while in neutral too.
>>34933382>There is no way you can charge magic in an actual fight right?You can read at the end of a combo, at least. If you finish with j.2C or fireball then you'll have time to read once before they recover.
Needs more remixes.
>>34933382The safest times to charge magic for Oleander are when you're far away from your opponent in the air and when your opponent just got knocked down. You might want to watch good Oleander players and notice when they sneak in reading time.As for the AI, yeah, the AI is purposely harder here than in Skullgirls. You really do need to adjust how you play against them depending on what kind of opponent you're up against, especially against the Velvet and Arizona bots.
>>34933438>>34933441>>34933721Thanks guys, yeah I guess I've got to practice a bit more, someday i'll be able to play Oleander.
>>34933864Actually, if you want to see some recent really good Oleander play, the last few matches of the Mane 6's Frost Faustings' Friday footage has you covered:https://youtu.be/suSzJjDXoAk?t=7114
>>34934354did someone said shimmer posting?
>>34933890Thank you for the timestamp, I saw that in the thread but didn't see much Oleander.
So I heard they wanted to do victory phrases for each character. What things would they say to each other?
>>34933382You joined in a good moment of the game, nowadays there are lots of new players, the levels are even there was a time where you could find more high tier players than new ones, it made me sad seeing how new players would innocently ask fights to guys with 500+ hours into the game just to get their dignity and self trust in the game completly crushed. In this moment you can find lots of new players that will give you an even fight, that way you can actually have fun with the game instead of being completly obliterated out of the existence which in my opinion is really disheartening when you are beggining in the game. Also don't be shy to fight other players sometimes I see people just walking arround in the lobby being shy to ask other guys to fight
>>34935706>Also don't be shy to fight other players sometimes I see people just walking around in the lobby being shy to ask other guys to fight That is literally me, I am that guy. I just don't know what is wrong with me, for some reason whenever I want to play this game I can't ask other people to fight me, always thinking that me saying anything will ruin the atmosphere so I tend to only stick to salt mines and when I see someone approach the chest I just leave them just so I wouldn't have to interact with them and probably waste their time. This is the reason why I can't participate in any tournament, I always think I will be the odd one out and that extends beyond the game, same goes for the community groups, discord servers etc.
>>34935806Literally just challenge people at random. If they don't want to fight then they can just hit the cancel button
>>34936577See this face? All you have to do is scratch their ears and all six of them will act the same way.
>trying to play the game some weekend or at some free moment of the day>see some lobby>it's full of people, sweet! I'll be able to play with many players>get into the lobby>some non QT event is taking place in the lobby>everyone is minding their own business>try to ask someone to fight>"sorry my fight begins in 1 hour can't fight u rn">80% of the server is either training or afk watching the event streamC'mon I just want to play some casual matches without having to commit fully to an event. Tourneys are fun and all but is better when it's like once at month like QT that way it conserves its magic, the game is only active at random tourneys nowadays.
>>34937358You need to try again more often. The game has been very active the past month or so, lots of new players
>>34935806In the same shoes but I still go on tournaments. You should try it. Leaf bois are fun. There's sunday shitshows too, although, it's happening less often now.
>>34937107... all six of her ears?
>>34938219I meant to make a post last night but I was lazy. I always skip Shitshows during the cup. Sometimes others are bullied into hosting the shitshow but this is the last CUP day so I didn't bother. Important day being the last and all. But that also meansSHITSHOW NEXT WEEK!Yes, that's right. A rare ADVANCED NOTICE of a Shitshow; returning with a bang. There will be the regular FIGHTS, but also GAMES and PRIZES. Fun times will be had, in the game and in chat. Too good, or not good enough, show up anyway. ONE OF THE PRIZES WILL BE A COPY OF TFHSo show up even if you don't have the game!Next Sunday Feb 9th at 1pm EST. Be there nerds.
>>34938320>one of the prizes will be a copy of TFHhang on a minute
>>34938771Yes. For chat. There's at least that one anon who wanted the game.
>>34938798I guess we're finally using those QTcoin bets for something after all.
>>34938847QTcoins require brackets to grab who is fighting who
>>34938320>ONE OF THE PRIZES WILL BE A COPY OF TFHNow that sounds like a prize.

>>34948188how often does she drop the combos?
>>34948627Depending on who's playing her? Constantly or not at all and you lose like, a third-to-half your health bar.
>>34948628>lose like, a third-to-half your health bar.She does almost 0 damage and just relies on resets and mixups to get confirms again.
>>34948632Nah, optimal combos with resources do >40% easy, particularly if you've got install Ash loops down. She doesn't two touch you consistently in round two like she did in the early playable versions but if she gets j.C starters and has meter she can 3 touch without needing too much luck.Here's a video I stole from the discord

>>34951508Or with your hand, I assume.
>>34951903>velvet is actually a nigger.
Really important question and I need some detailed answers, quick. What is each ungulate like to hold and cuddle with?
>>34953701AZ: muscular and probably a bit bony in areas because she's still a growing calf. probably ticklishVelvet: No one knows, but the line is around the block. The frost elves know but the bastards speak in runes so we can't understandTian: Have you ever hugged a lizard? Imagine that, but warmer and not as into it because she'd rather be kicking the training dummy.Ollie: She'd complain a lot, and Fred would tease her, but she'd secretly enjoy it. She's real skinny, though. Also her hair kinda moves on its own sometimes and you're not sure you're into that.Pom: SOFT and fleecy, once she gets used to you she really snuggles in there. And then both of you are buried in dogs who also want cuddles. There won't be a spot on your face left unlicked by dog.Pap: A little itchy, but soft and plush. Sometimes the fluff falls off and you'll probably end up with fleas because you're not sure she bathes.
>>34953731Velvet has soft and clean but short fur, except for her tail and chest which is very fluffy. Her legs might be thin and delicate but the rest of body is plush. You could easily rest your head and fall asleep onto her pillowy floof, if she would let you.Cashmere is more or less the same, except her floof is a little more unkept, and would be slightly cooler (or warmer?) because of previously having her scarf wrapped around it.
>>34953731Would cuddle AZ and respect her ticklishnessWould bury face in Velvet's floof and get slapped or worse afterwardsOllie's hair would creep me out. Ollie's hair but sexually is another question.Pass on Pom cuddles and getting licked by dogs. They do lick their butts form time to time you know.I like to think that rarely when hugging Paprika you'd find yourself wearing a sweater with no sensation as to how you got it (or two sweaters if you were already wearing one).Finally, does Tian's fire only burn those she doesn't trust, or only a fight or flight situation? How does that work?
>>34954591It is fire and it does hurt. Hurt you!
>>34954593Fucking Tian vs Arizona... Say something else or even nothing at all PLEASE.

Oh, it seems that they have hired a new character animator recently who goes by Red.They announced this on the Discord.
>>34957420Never heard of him before. Is there any link to past animation or something?
>>34948665These videos are why I own fighting games but never play them. I can't even do all the tutorial combos and people have 23-second shenanigans in the air
>>3495833298% of the playerbase can't do that shit either and it's actually not as hard as it looksThe training mode trial combos aren't designed to be things you actually do, they're demonstrations of what is possible using the character and generally both heavily suboptimal and often harder than real bread and butter combos, if those are what you're talking aboutIf you mean the actual tutorial mode combos then just practice a bit, they're really easy once you get the hang of actually doing inputs, it's just learning the pacing you hit buttons to cancel up the chain and getting used to doing 236 motions and stuff
Is there any like, greens for tfhg?
>>34958392there's a gaggle of people who think it's actually a roleplaying game setting, but I don't think so.

>>34957496https://www.deviantart.com/flannagantheredThey actually seem to be an adult artist/animator.According to their patreon, they do have an animation degree and some experience in making games themselves, although a lot of it seems to be behind patron rewards.I also found their Tumblr, which is still surprisingly there despite the whole Tumblrggedon thing with it having quite a bit of NSFW things on it.

THE SHITSHOW IS OVER
>>34964548who won the major award
>>34965293No one.The two copies for TFH are still up for grabs.
Are they still relying on the kickstarter money? It's been so long
>>34965951Nah, they've got sales and that sweet Humble Bundle money now.
>>34965951Nah, they got a publisher in Humble Bundle just before going into early access who gave them more money.Also, they're getting money from people buying the game itself (minus the amount they have to give to Steam and their publisher).According to Steamspy, out of people who don't privatize their profiles, the game has somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 owners.I guess that would still count backers who got their key (about 10,000 backers on Indiegogo, although some are waiting for Mac and Linux versions) and people who got it from the recent Humble Choice thing.
>>34965951That money has long since been gone
>>34965951Who would even buy this game when someone's already ported Fighting Is Magic characters to mugen?It's only a matter of time before someone who has mugen buys this game and ports its characters to Mugen.and then an unfinished game with 6 characters gets to have a real roster.
>>34966010>It's only a matter of time before someone who has mugen buys this game and ports its characters to Mugen.[laughs in hexadecimal]
>>34966010>MugenMugen has a reputation for a reason
>>34965998I wouldn't be so sure about that, they probably set aside money for the specific things that they laid out in the original crowdfunding campaign, such the physical backer rewards.>>34966010lol, thanks for the laugh person who doesn't understand how much work it would take to even try getting every single animation frame out of the Z Engine and putting them into an extremely restrictive and outdated engine that literally can't do most of the technical things the Z Engine can do.
>>34966043>the game is taking so long because paprika ate the animation budget
>>34966043$586,346 raised 5 years ago on indiegogo6 man team (ignoring recent expansions)Assuming a base salary of $50k a year (low-average end of game dev salary) that's $300,000 a year. It's been 5. That money is long gone. You can break up the fund allocation in categories, but it ultimately just means 'someone is paid to do this part of the job.'So, either they have been paying themselves less a year; have side income, or are relying on publisher/ sales to keep this a full time job.There is no way any percent of that original money is still around. $500,000 is a lot for one person. $500,000 is not a lot for 6.
>>34966043You don't really need to actually extract the sprites, you can just turn off the backgrounds and chroma key out the black screen. It won't be 100% perfect but close enough. That's how stuff like this gets done.But yeah, mugen is awful
>>34966178I don't know if that $50k really makes sense for indie game developers specifically, especially one who were willing to work for free (albeit part time) before this."The costs of making the game and establishing the company (including legal fees, taxes and some other administrative stuff) have so far been funded out of our collective pocket, and the development has been done in our free time, with volunteer effort." (excerpt from the crowdfunding)I've seen indie teams who've made a game for a much longer time on less money.Also, I guess this is a little picky, but it's been less than 4 and a half years, not 5.But yeah, you're right that at least the paying of full time workers is probably mainly coming from the publisher and sales at this point even taking that into account.
>>34966300Oh, and to add on this, while you can definitely say that over $500,000 of money have been spent on making the game so far, you can't really say that over $500,000 of the money spent on the game came from the crowdfunding campaign.Again, they probably allocated money on the side for stuff like physical rewards (the custom fightsticks, physical versions of the game and soundtrack, etc.) and stuff for the Goat DLC character (like money for paying her voice actor).It isn't exactly right to say that "the money is gone" if it's just that sections of funding are coming from different sources now, but later stuff is still going to come from that first source.
>>34966300Can't really cut much further than $50k annually without basically asking all the devs to voluntarily put themselves into poverty while working on the game.
>>34966300>>34966511You have quite an odd idea of holding onto this 'original' $580k while accepting other revenue in its place. Maybe it's some hang up on the promise thing. Regardless, the cost of development has far exceeded it.Let's say the team is willing to live in federal poverty. This means they agree to only receive around $12k a year. 6 people being paid 12k yearly = 72,000. 580,000 / 72,000 = 8years of funding if counting salaries alone.Now you add a few more people to the team, tournament events, merch, PR, game development tools, backer rewards, the legal/ taxes/ admin fees. On the THINNEST of margins they would still have a few tens of thousands of dollars left by this year. Maybe 20, maybe 80.On a more realistic, and sympathetic, level of $50,000 a year we go to $300,000 a year for those 4 and a half years coming to a total of $1,350,000 spent to date IN SALARY ALONE.Games are expensive to make. That $580,000 they started with got them through a MAJOR portion of the development stage. A stage where no one could buy the game. Only crowd funders got access to the beta until 2 years ago this month. Partnerships such as the Skull Girls kick-starter helped alleviate some costs such as the zEngine, but still that was a lot of time where no additional revenue could be pulled from the game itself.Once there was a steam release new sales and the eventual partnership with humblebundle gave some new revenue. That is not a bad thing. The fact they blew through those original donations to make the game ISN'T A BAD THING. It's expected. It was the purpose of those funds.For the game we have given what they had, we got a pretty solid result. That is something a lot of kickstarter projects can't say. There really is no reason to worry about a concept such as 'original funds' as if it's something to defend. The game has been delivered, and quite costly, and it's pretty good.Now if only they'd stop dragging their feet and finish the damn thing.

The fact they blew through those original donations to make the game ISN'T A BAD THING. It's expected. It was the purpose of those funds.It kinda is a bad thing if they promised the game to be done like three years ago. Now I'm sitting here waiting for story mode to this day, and they're too broke to keep working on the game, then yeah that's a bad thing. Like they really "blew" through it without actually doing the stuff they were supposed to do while getting those "salaries".

>>34982993Yeah, my bad, the concept is pretty much same, with bear farming other players instead
>>34983088Yeah, but harder to set up You need to be able to win the mining stage as the character you want to unlock the skin for, and win as the bear against all the other people in the lobby.You can still do it by finding a partner and going to an empty server, but it won't get in the way of normal mines play at least.And honestly in low population mines runs getting bear and winning isn't hard at all. It's not going to be a super exclusive thing or anything anyway.looking forward to polluting matches with the tennis shoe palette more desu

>>34983222Right, but it has to be an official Mane6 server; it won't work in personal ones. And as we move closer to 1.0, we're more likely to get more people in those servers. So you should consider getting them as soon as possible.
