>>37105656First for floof!
>>37105656When do we make a TFH VN?It'd take like, half of the autism to make a regular QT HYP video.
>>37105656The July 31st Circuit was cancelled so that the EVO Online tournament on July 23rd could basically take its place.
>>37105656>Booping OliThat's lewd and strictly forbidden
>>37105689Whenever they finish Story mode....Unless you mean porn about fucking the cast to which if it hasn't happened yet, it ain't ever gonna happen.
>>37105799>Whenever they finish Story mode../v/ just made a VN out of a game that isn't even released yet.Making a VN with our own Foenum canon in front of mane 6 would be pretty funny ngl.
>>37105656me on the right
>>37105784What's the frame advantage on that?
>>37105784Ollie must be absolutely livid right now.
So the pools part of EVO is on the 23rd right? I want to compete despite having zero chance of making it out of pools, and want to make sure I take the right day off work to do so.
>>37105799>Waiting for story mode because you don't play fighting games that much and don't want to get dabbed on by fighter turboautists who play 24/7>That and you want to know more about the massive plot they surely have in store>Glacial development paceHard times...
who are the best oleander players
Anyone else excited for Strive, in 5 hours?
>>37106582I'm excited to Strive for better fighting games, ahaha.This isn't a general fighting game thread anon.
>>37106592TFH has GG cross promotion in it, so still relevant.
>>37106582I'm going to play it but meh I'm not that enthused based on what I've seen so far. I'd have rather they made a Rev3 or Xrth instead.
>>37106592I'd rather talk about fighting games here than ponies teebeehaich>>37106582Tried the beta and wasn't interested, I'll wait a year or two and see if it feels more guilty.>Pom main>try +R>give May a try because she has charge motions and big hitboxes>can spam j.H similar to Pom's j.C>Applause for the Victim even lets me fuck with people a la chopper>chopper gets nerfed to irrelevance>Appluase for the Victim doesn't appear in StrivePain
>>37106640Wouldn't Pom be closer to Zato since they're puppet characters?
>>37105689/mlp/ never made a proper FiM VN in all those years. What makes you think this board is capable of anything more than straight up porn VNs?
>>37106047Then you should probably check smash.gg instead of listening to anon>>37106569Like in general? Probably MPK, Amaron & boaat
>>37106653I mean zero offense when I say this and hope you take none, but I'm always baffled when people say stuff like this and it's always really hard to find suggestions on characters who play like Pom because of it. "Summoner" is a super nebulous term from everything I've seen; a character who is a "summoner" can be designed in an infinite number of ways and the only requirement is that they summon something. It can be summoned in any kind of way, and it can do any kind of thing when summoned.When I see Pom and use her, I see a character who can threaten and control a large amount of space with her j.C and well-placed dogs, and who can use her extremely tight horizontal mobility to do a lot of things, whether that be positioning herself so her j.C is harder to punish, going in for an air dash crossup, or combining the air dash and float in the same direction to build ludicrous speed and either close a ton of distance or, as I often do, create a ton of distance if the opponent is being aggressive and you want to force neutral.Her summons to me are all means to an end, you setting one up so you can use it later. Keep Mama out as a wall of punishment or corner pressure, use growly to stop ground approaches (controlling space), use digger to make a block string safe so you can get away or try one last mixup, use chopper as a sword of damocles and fuck up air approaches until 2.0 made him nothing more than an anti-zoning tool, RIP you were my favorite thing to use against dragon players.Now contrast with specifically Eddie. While I could play a match as Pom without her dogs and have most of the above game plan, Eddie NEEDS Shadow, his game plan does not function in the slightest without it. His entire shtick is using shadow for nigh-incomprehensible pressure and mixups. Shadow can always be used unless you run out of his meter, in which case you're boned and Eddie becomes gimped. Also unlike Pom, who has a dedicated button to control her dogs once summoned, Eddie's shadow attacks by releasing pressed buttons at the right time, which raises his execution barrier into the stratosphere. Pom is hard to use due to her high skill ceiling, but Eddie's skill FLOOR is uncrackable for someone like me; my fingers hurt thinking about it.Now May by contrast is a simple character to use, whose normal attacks have really good range just like Pom. Different from Pom is how strong the Mr. Dolphin dash attack is, but that's actually something I look for in other games (in another life I may have been a Paprika main). She relies on keeping a charge like Pom, and while Applause for the Victim is also controlled by releasing buttons, it is much more situational to May's game plan and can be used, like Pom's dogs for me, to force the opponent not to linger in a certain spot (especially dust). Her tools overall let me do the Pom stuff I like.tl;dr: Pom is a character with summons that I like, but not all summoners play like her, far from it.
>>37106882Revising my statement to say I was misinformed, Little Eddie needs to be explicitly summoned and is not just passively active. Reading his moveset and game plan more thoroughly I don't think I'm incorrect in my assessment that he's a pressure/oki monster who wants to always be on the offense for as long as possible and who struggles a ton on defense/doesn't have great normals when Little Eddie is not summoned
>>37106569Amaron, e199, boaat, bykaf, mpk
>>37106582>early GG was just pure nightmare fuel with the character designs>now it look like another anime fighterWhat happened?
>>37106998Honestly it's all the fault of the most recent game, Xrd still had most of the series' trappings. I don't know what they're thinking with Strive's UI (and let us not discuss the lobbies).
>>37106952>>37106882I mean, you're not completely wrong in that Pom and Zato aren't identical or that players of one have to play the other.But if you're going to find a character to compare to Pom in GG it's definitely Zato/Eddie. There's a reason people that play him also tend to play Relius or Carl etc. It's probably the difference between "puppet" and "summon." Summoner isn't really a defined thing, whereas puppet character refers to a pretty specific archetype with not that many representatives, so when someone plays one it's natural to assume that they would like the others. Like big body grappler players, if grapplers were rare and high execution instead of in almost every game and incredibly simple.
I only just now found out there was a TFH thread. I've been playing for a year now- would have started lurking here ages ago if I knew it existed.
>>37107084I guess maybe it depends on how much you use Pom's dogs in the first place. I know anyone who makes it to top 16 at majors like Oscar and Hamit set up dogs at every opportunity and use them at every opportunity. I don't include the dogs in my combos though, only setting them up in neutral (if I think I'm safe) or at the end of combos.It sometimes makes me feel like I'm playing the wrong character in TFH but there's not a single hitbox in the game I love as much as pic and her float is both fun and makes combo execution a lot easier, so it'll take another DLC character who does the things I like doing with Pom better than Pom before I switch
>>37107102Worst liar in this thread.
>>37107117I checked /vg/ a few months ago and didn't see one, so I assumed it just didn't exist.
>>37107117What's not to believe? /mlp/ is the pony board and this game is only related to it by association rather than being a direct spinoff or anything. There's an alt timeline where this game is free to be discussed on the vidya boards and banned from here for not being pony, it's just that the GR15 ruling kind of forces it here.
>>37107142I just like fighting games, let me live.
the true power of shanty's offense just dawned on me as i fought a helpless paprika player. even though that matchup sucks and i had to take a lot of risks i was able to control him like a puppet, desperate as he was to defend against my ruthless aggression. i'm not even well-versed in her tech or anything, i was just running with the BnBs i learned from some guy and my fundamentals. this character is absolutely absurd and i'm assuming all the other ones are probably absurd in their own way as well. i find the balance method of "make everyone ridiculous" as tantalising as it is horrifying.t. third strike fag. i took a break from TFH for a while and got much stronger, now that i'm back, this game seems so much more ridiculous than i remember.
>>37107123>>37107142How can you play the game for a year without figuring out there was a TFH thread here with how heavily the ponyfag community is deeply connected into the game.
>>37107102Hello new anon, you should join a QT for a fun shitpost extremely netplay tourney :^)
>>37107213Signed up, no guarantee I'll make it though.>>37107197Because I'm not really into MLP.
>>37107197Bronies love Doctor Who a lot too but I wouldn't check this board to see if there was a thread on the latest episode here.It's not insane that there's a TFH thread here but if I hadn't seen posts about it on /v/ threads get deleted in real time I wouldn't've expected it to violate GR15
>>37107167The balancing method only works because it only has to balance six (seven) characters and had three years of testing and patching to get to where we are now.
Do you think Paprika looked cute as a baby
How to erase Paprika?
>>37107445from the thumbnail I thought that was a skeleton
>>37107463Block their shit until they tele CIt won't take very long
mommy came to the basement today and saw me playing the game and said that it's a waste of time while sadly staring at arizona and being very disappointed
>>37107483I meant from the picture and I don't remember what the letters mean because I do not pay attention to them. Can you please say light, medium, heavy and magic?
>>37107624Don't listen to your mom, it seems like she might be one of those "anti-video-game mothers".
>>37107627Light is A, medium is B, heavy is C, magic is D. It's easier to use the letters, especially in the context of combos. Tele C (heavy) is the one where Paprika falls from the top of the screen with an overhead.>I meant from the pictureUse art editing software. If I were to attempt it I'd highlight all the pixels with Paprika (with a combo of color picker and the lasso tool) and delete them. In some cases you might have to reconstruct parts of the picture but Arizona is in front of Paprika so I don't think you'd need to. I personally use paint.NET but something like GIMP or Photoshop would also work and have more robust options (though from experience GIMP is a nightmare to learn)
>>37107624Video games aren't a waste of time as they're recreation, but if you do nothing but play video games then your time is being wasted in the sense that you're squandering opportunities. If you're holding down a job and meeting all other obligations then you can spend your free time however you like, but if you're a NEET then you should spend more time improving your lot in life whether that be through working or going back to school.
>>37107642Yeah... No it isn't, people are just used to the whole ABCD thing.
Oh and I'm fucked with the "use editing software" part.
>>37107645ABCD is several letters shorter than light medium heavy magic, it's intuitive in its progression, and it's also what the game itself uses.>>37107649>>37107627Krita is free and then you can just use manual selection to trace around best ungulate and remove her. But if you don't want to bother you can always ask for it in the edits thread and hope.>>37107483This hurts. We're not *all* this stupid....Only most of us.
>>37107750What do I press?
>>37107953Guilty Veal : SteakEdit: Damn autocorrect
>>37107642Sometimes this makes me feel we need a basic image to guide newbiws when we say 6B or 9D.
>>37108301You mean like the in-game tutorial that already explains this stuff? Or like the one linked in the OP? I swear, 4Chan users are literal toddlers.Numpad notation takes 5 seconds to explain anyway, although given it's that easy it might indeed help to include a short explanation in the OP itself instead of just linking so it's even harder for retards to still miss it.Even if I personally think reverse numpad is the superior notation. But consistency and clarity are more important.
This was suppose to be a grab.What it turned out to be what a giant middle finger to my positioning.I'm beyond salty
>>37108652Shanty going to be summoning a giant pink whale as her level 3
>>37107624I'm kinda worried of my parents seeing me playing this.They might make the obvious MLP connection and take the piss but even if they don't I'll probably get some raised eyebrows...
>>37109202In what universe is this worse or more embarrassing than playing a Street Fighter (or most anime fighters (not implying SF is one, just adding another category)) with sound on and a female character on screen?
This may be the current highlight of my AID shenanigans
>>37108860Shanty's level 3 will be an instant kill where the crew of the capricorn tramples the opponent
>>37109415That's messed up.
>>37108652>HoshyHow can one person be so based and supercharged? An actual human god.
>>37109379Honestly I think I WOULD prefer them assuming I'm watching hentai or something.IMO that's way less bad than playing something overtly cute but that might just be my family
>>37108815Yeah. Grabs only check for collision boxes and not hurtboxes.
>>37109942Nice job! Now edit the signature to say "Ded Game" :^)
>>37110101This dead game is going to Evo.
>>37108652That does not look like an anchor in the thumbnail.
>>37110168Let me guess, a massive butt plug?
>>37110453Fred's already on it. Which may or may not be incest.
>>37110691no I want to
>>37110886>>37110904man those Ari mirror matches are getting rough
>>37110904It's better this way because they can't fight back
I thought the QT was today
>>37110904Um... Are you the original maker of >>37107463??
>>37110904I was going to go on a rant about how it's totally not a dead game but that's kinda hilarious
I probably took too long doing this. Presenting the next chapter of my AI Dungeon story. Warning, contains stinky lizzurhttps://pastebin.com/hLnfhAikBONUS: Alternate chapter where shit goes wayyy off the rails but was far too interesting for me to stop until I saw where it ended. Extremely non-canon both to TFH and to my specific story, but maybe the people who have enjoyed my previous posts will find it interesting as well.https://pastebin.com/QxCSrLi8
>>37113346Forgot to mention, the story is exactly the same in the non-canon alt until line 72, just saying so nobody reads the same prologue twice
>>37113294It isn't dead, it is just a bit inactive because the devs are slower than sloths.
>>37113346Tianhuo is just trying to help Pom, but Pom is too scared to focus on this an accept or listen to her help? Nice reference to Pom's Level 3 super.
>>37113346Where did you get the name Vendakeya from? Anyway, that "what if" chapter seems like it would be an interesting idea for a branching-off story.
>>37113346Sorry for all the multiple replies; I keep thinking of things to say. I noticed at least one misspelling:>reallityI don't think there are more.But anyway, yeah, that alternate ending really gives me a lot of ideas about the potential in the lore. I really hope Lauren and Ryan Faust (and Anukan, and Aaron) have written something equally as engaging (at least in terms of lore and potential), but we'll have to wait and see.
>>37113384That's the idea, as well as Tianhuo making things worse by doubling down instead of realizing how she sounds (and looks)>>37113395Made up by the AI. Actually every name so far that isn't a canon character was AI generated save for the unicorns in the woodlands (because we can use Oleander and Amaryllis to determine a naming scheme based on flowery flower names and pick appropriate-sounding ones as a result)

>>37117029There are no anons in Foenum, and it shall stay that way.
getting good at this game is really strange. All the stuff I've learned from third strike is warped, emphasised heavily, or otherwise completely absent in some way, and it's confusing to see everything flow so differently. I'm questioning so much stuff that I thought was absolute that its almost driving me mad, but at the end of the day i'm just getting more perspective on how the strategies i've been using actually work and why. This game is so weird but I like it.
>>37118348For a genre detractors claim plays exactly the same no matter the game, the variety in fighting game gameplay is some of the largest around. TFH and 3S are pretty far apart on the spectrum of 2D fighting game gameplay, Street Fighter being a grounded game where jump arcs are commital in most circumstances (3rd Strike seems to be a bit different in that regard from the SF norm since you have superjumps and parries though) while TFH is full airdasher and every character has different movement mechanics/specials that cause everyone to move entirely different in neutral and use different tools in combos.I'm glad you're enjoying TFH and finding a new perspective in how different fighting games can be from each other, anon. I hope you continue to enjoy this game, enjoy the games you already play, and try new ones to find future favorites.
>>37118348Feeling similarly about Strive right now, everything feels strange and slightly confusing but I'm having fun and learning improvements on my button mashing. Perhaps I'll even pick some line of thinking up to bring back to TFH.
>>37118598It'll be a pretty trash crossover
>>37118401I think the game needs a mechanical change to blocking. You only get one chance before you're met with a potential brutal beating that takes half your HP or more. Like that seems to be the only flaw I can see with the fighting of TFH. This would prevent the game from preferring more offensive or defensive characters.
>>37118806>I think the game needs a mechanical change to blockingCould you elaborate what you mean, I have no clue what part of blocking you're referring to
>>37118808Where you fail to block one and then you clench your ass cheeks until the combo just can't keep going and is forced to stop.
>>37110904Based.Dead "creative" fandom.
>>37119012Learn to be good at blocking
>>37119095What do you think I'm doing? Biting my cock during the match?
>>37119043Fuck off autist.
>>37119012are you making use of pushblocking and cross canter? pushblock especially helps a lot in not getting completely mauled
>>37119701Yes but that isn't any use if you you block/push-block wrong once.
>>37118806It just feels that way because combos are so long. In 3s I get hit by a low forward into super for a third of my health bar all the same.
>>37118806I concur, I just think that offense is way too powerful. From 3S it feels like when I get hit because i blocked the wrong way it was my fault and i nod and accept it. Not only that but in 3S there is scary pressure and offense but it's not nearly as long and drawn out as most characters in this game. (Dudley or maybe Yang have the scariest pressure and even then it's not nearly as scary as anyone in TFH) but seeing some of the stuff my opponents have been pulling on me, I often just end up leaving with nothing but "how was I supposed to block that?" in my mind. I get that people think that "The Schmix" is hype or whatever, but I honestly just don't see it- what makes it "hype" when you "mix up" your opponent is that you successfully goaded them into doing what you want, showing off your very strong offensive skills, which is exciting. Just confusing them into having to block some random, out-of-nowhere thing doesn't really hit the same because there's not really any way they could have seen it coming with how many offensive options every character in this game has. You didn't really strategise, you just did something random after conditioning them to block and it worked. That's not really exciting.Overall I think offense is really lopsidedly strong in comparison to defense because of the extremely strong pressure of most characters and the offensive tools being plentiful and ridiculous, while the defensive ones are usually committal (even blocking, usually supposed to be a fallback "safe" option, is committal because you allow your opponent to try a fake mixup).
>>37119906Have you considered also attacking
>>37119949If you're referring to Abare, then yes, I have considered it and use it where I see fit, but I feel like it is another example of a committal, risky defensive option, because it loses to meaties that aren't fake (Shanty's 5A has 8 active frames! Ridiculous meaty!) and is usually most people's go-to which is why you have to condition people to block.
>>37119906I disagree. This game has some of the strongest blocking in any fighting game I've ever tried. If you're on point almost everything is either reactable or OSable and there's very rarely any sort of checkmate situations.Free, strong pushblock, free airblocking, no vulnerable jump startup, absolute guard, fast dead angles, reactable throws, absolute guard again, nothing is jump cancellable on block, every grounded overhead is slow, no reverse beat, very limited plus frames generally, and on top of all that if you do get hit your JD hangs around to limit the next combo if you don't fuck up.Doesn't Dudley have a 12f standing overhead into super that does 40%? The fastest possible high from a grounded start in TFH is 17 frames, and that's a stupid Tian flip dash cancel j.A gimmick, realistically it's 19 for flip j.B, and grounded overheads like Ari's 6B or Oli's 6C are 20+. It's an anime game, so pressure is strong and freeform, but it's also got extremely good defensive options to go with that, and for the anime subgenre the offence is really nothing special whereas the defensive options are standout.
>>37120054Every fighting game is full of bullshit, you need to find the game where the bullshit resonates with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52e3LNOCEwg
>>37119906The mix in this game when done in a blockstring is usually reactable or based on opponent taking a heavy risk. In order to do a strike throw mix mid blockstring for example, the opponent needs to correctly read when and how you're pushblocking and abaring. In order to do a grounded overhead/crossup, the opponent needs to either hope you're sleeping/heavily conditioned/a bit slow on rxns for most overheads since they're fairly reactable--or in the case of tian/pap correctly time it based around your absolute guarding and accept the risk in doing so. There's definitely a lot of stuff characters can vortex at you if your defense is predictable, but there's a lot of ways to defend if your opponent has predictable offensive structure.
>>37120054For real with dudley you block high by default and then block the sweep on reaction because both the overhead and the sweep lead to 40% damage but the sweep is actually more reactable.When you play a game for a while you just become accustomed to the bullshit. But every game has bullshit, and don't kid yourself for a second, 3s has BULLSHIT. Fucking Makoto does dash up command throw and that's hardly reactable and then go straight into a full stun combo.
>>37120054>all that shit all over the screenman, TFH is really tidy come to think of it.
>>37120054>>37120245Maybe you're right. I suppose things seemed a lot faster in-game than they really are, and I probably should have looked at the frame data for the actual mixups before making my conclusion. Thank you for telling me why I was wrong instead of calling me an idiot and dismissing me. I'll study more into this game's defensive mechanics.some shanty player bodied me and i was salty when i typed my post.
>>37119012I don't think it's that bad in TFH after 2.0, though I see exactly where you're coming from (Skullgirls is unplayable against someone who knows the combo routes and knows how to cheese the anti-infinite mechanics, they will kill you in two hits if you use a solo character or three hits if you're a team of 3).I'm not sure if TFH would really be better with a burst mechanic though. It's already pretty doable to turn a round completely around the way the game is, and a powerful universal reversal mechanic to get out of combos would radically change how this game is played. I wouldn't want to see matches last longer on average because of somebody getting ideal conditions for a high-damage combo only to get bursted after the first hit, and also wouldn't want to see moments like this taken away because of a burst.https://clips.twitch.tv/PrettyTenaciousBearKAPOW-yg_Zp3o71EzICwhp
>>37120054>0:12Man what the hell, does Zato's shadow crossup independent of Zato? I cannot even tell WHAT broke her guard let alone how
>>37120956Just Zato's 2K
>>37120962H...how do you defend against that? Is there a really obvious sound tell not present in the soundless webm? Is it really slow with an obvious and easy-to-see animation once you're familiar with fighting the character?Imagine if growly could crossup without Pom switching sides
>>37120975No, as in it doesn't hit crossup, you still block the same direction, she just got hit low while standing. It's not quite third strike Urien unblockable setup levels.
>>37120987Oh, okay, my mistake. Not sure why you'd block high at that point (but I don't know how quickly the character can pull out an overhead), but it's training dummy so probably just a quirk
>>37120995Zato has 3 overheads and a command grab, if you get into that situation you basically just pick an option and hope he picks the same one, and then do it twice more
>>37121031Can he get a full combo off all them?

There was a couple anons working to hack the Z-engine in the "Fighting is Magic" thread before it got ded. Anyone know where they moved their modding talk to?
>>37121934That's definitely a big waste of effort.
>>37122356Considering the efforts to hack the Z engine before, you really cannot expect anything tangible to come out of that.Maybe it could happen, but don't expect it. Hacking it hasn't gone anywhere before for a good reason.
when you're in the air you only have to press one button to block so I don't get why anyone wouldn't just jump all day every day
>>37118708Well that’s just you, in my unpopular opinion I would love to see to see a story involving the four of them together. (How Oleander acts towards a character that’s two-part predator would be interesting.) Though the amount of people who still cares enough about both MLP and TFH, as well as the Young Six AND the Pillars is absolute zero.
>>37123016When you're in the air you generally have less options than on the ground, especially if you're a character that doesn't have strong air mobility. It is pretty low risk, but the opportunity cost is higher than it seems, because for example if you up back you're giving up screen space and letting your opponent corner you, and if you jump forward you're telegraphing your position and letting your opponent react to it so they can anti air you or run under or air to air or whatever, you're letting them choose the option that's best for them at the time. That's why stuff like Tian's flight is so good, but even it is more committal than just staying on the ground, you can always just fly later if you need to.But you're not really wrong, TFH is a very air heavy game.
>>37121664Can you post examples of their posts outside this thread? I'm not sure if it's really them but if it is I want to laugh at them
>>37123016Adding to this, preblock exists partly as a reason to stop you doing this. You can't safely jump out of lows. >>37123100
>>37122495Skullmod allows you to mod everything but the character sprites at the moment. The only reason character sprites haven't been hacked yet is due to lack of interest.

Welcomed back by the Sheep tribe!My fellow sheep brethren,Oscar, Yams, Minty, Lum and M^27 sorry if you're not actually Pom mains, I only remember you playing Pom from the waifu wars.I have made good on my vow nearly a year ago!Ever since, during QT tournament hours. I have not entered combat with The Deer, Paka, Cow, Lizard or Unicorn.I came close to taunting with the health lead only once. But I managed to stave off my hand once I realized what I was doing. This, was probably one of the closest I've been to breaking my vow.I trained tirelessly in pubs and continued despite the constant bodying and shunning for my original transgression. The constant sneering and jests of those following a specific order took their toll. But my time in exile has taught me a great many things from many different tribes. All of which culminated in todays victory!With the outcome of todays tourney, I hope I've made you, my brothers, proud.To the opponents I've faced today in the Tourney. To Asiago, Kyrie and Macklemore;You all were honorable opponents and I'm proud to have shared a stage with you. You didn't make it easy, but it is for the best that it be that way. Though I must apologize to you Kyrie, perhaps if you weren't so rusty I would not be making this post. Next time, however. You'll be able to show me and the rest of the audience the true dragon tribe style in its full form. I'll be looking forward to it, old friend.That goes for everyone, too.I'll be looking forward to fighting everyone in the tourneys to come!I am The Beverage,and I have regained muh honar.>inb4 blogpost, yeah i know, i know but i wanted to give this thing closure and I'm still riding off the high of winning a tourney

She would squeeze your bones so hard they would CRUNCH and crumble to dust. Either that or she'd barely grab hold of your cock or balls and perform a massive chomp on your scrotum forcing it to be sliced off and starting to spew out blood.

>>37128649She's watching you, anon.
>>37129055Nice try but I'm not autistic like they always claim, I don't see Paprika Paca every time I see an alpaca.
Shanty plushie I madeShe took about two weeks to make. This is the first time i've sewn anything in about a year, very happy with herwas gonna post this in the official TFH discord but honestly I dont care for them
>>37129217She's adorable. What does the front look like?
>>37129217>>37129219>>37129220Good work, Anon. She's looking adorableNow stick it in her pooper
>>37129217>>37129219>>37129220I think these could've looked way better, they look a bit... "flaky", I don't really know how to describe it but they do look pretty odd and off, especially the eyes. I guess it doesn't matter as long as you are satisfied.
>>37129236You're absolutely right, she could have looked way better, if I was more experienced at sewing (which I am not). The whole purpose of me making this was to get more experience under my belt, so I know the do's and don'ts of sewing, for when i make a life size shanty for me to cuddle in bed, and i definitely did learn a lot of things that i'll keep in mind next time i make a plush so it looks better.I got a bit impatient with the headband because it was the last thing I did and I wanted her to be done. I could have absolutely done some hand-embroidery like I did with the eyes to make it look cleaner, but that would have taken hours for each side.Other than that, the already difficult pattern + her color palette requiring me to cut pieces into smaller ones and sew them together, and the fact that I used some cheap walmart fabric (since this is a practice project) all combine to make her look "flaky." But that doesn't mean i'm not proud of it, given the circumstances.
>>37129247Hey, I'm just now noticing but you really fucked up on the hair. I'm no expert at sewing but it seems as though every masterly made plushie that never uses anything string like for hair, even if the character has string-like hair. You should really just make Shanty's hair out of the same material as the rest of her body, oh and you made way too many strands, she has 4 in the back and 2 in the front.
>>37129223>spoilerthat sort of activity is reserved for the real shanty>>37129264I used yarn for the hair and it was way more trouble than what it got me. Super annoying to deal with and I was never really sure if it was gonna actually stay down when I sewed it to her. I'm just gonna use plush hair in the future like every other plushmancer.
>>37129219>>37129220A little flaky looking sure, but I think the "roughness" fits the pirate theme.
>>37129293>but I think the "roughness" fits the pirate theme.Why would you plushie to feel rough if you were to sleep with it?
>>37129217>>37129219>>37129220Cute Shanty plush! Not bad for a first pass.

>>37131021You can just play Arcade mode if you want to fight against AI opponents. That has nothing to do with the story mode taking 5ever for them to complete

>>37131258>when you realize you'll eventually get the opportunity to play as best deer to finish story modeI can't fucking wait.
>>37131297Best deer canonically got her ass served to her by an underage cow in front of the whole town. I can't wait to see how the shame and humiliation have broken her.
>>37131338She will conquer all, just you wait
>>37131338>>37131545Maybe it'll be like sonic adventure where everyone's story has fights play out differently depending on who you play as?
>>37131338It's possible Velvet's story is her chasing the cow down (and then getting sidetracked or being forced to go a different route since going through the same two locations for half the story would be boring). She discovers something related to the Key along the way, has to overcome her own ego to get past the challenges ahead, becomes a better person through the journey, meets cow, final boss of the chapter, then they exchange information at the end, developing a tenuous respect for each other. When Oleander, fully powered up through Fred's bindings becoming loose, tears through the entire cast in her Chapter (6) boss rush, Velvet and Arizona have a joint boss wave where Ari continues stomping the ground and Velvet tries catching you out of the air and pushing you back. When you get close Ari lassos you unless you preemptively fireball/shadow spark her
>>37131684Velvet is already the humblest of all deer. She has no ego to overcome as she is already perfect.
>>37131697Go work on getting your chapter finished, Velvet
>>37130939This is what I like to see, a Paprika experiencing a negative feeling, even if just emotional pain or a brief moment of disappointment..
>>37131943pls don't bully the Pap
>>37132002Too bad, i hate that murderer that suffers from love induced stupidity.
>>37131252You've never been to the salt mines, have you?
>>37132306I haven't played the online in like a year and certainly not since they updated it.Is it not just AI predators still?And from what I understand I believe players can take control of predators now as well so that just sets you up to get pummeled by said, 'fighter turboautists who play 24/7' I would assume. So why would playing the Salt Mines be preferable to just playing Arcade mode if you want to fight AI players
>>37132369I also remember opening chests and such opening you up to getting into fights with other players as well. So I REALLY don't see the point in playing Salt Mines if all you want is AI opponents
>>37132372The only time a player controls a predator is if they become the Bear at the end. After a certain time chests become un-contestable as well so as long as you get to the chest first you won't have to fight for it (and if you have enough salt).
>>37132407Sounds fine and all, but it still doesn't answer the question why you'd want to do salt mines if fighting AI opponents was your only real goal.I guess you get useless cosmetic stuff to customize your avatar with in the pixel lobby. But then if you don't care to play online against other players I can't imagine why you'd want to hang out in the pixel lobby to begin with.
>>37132412Why do you even play videogames?
>>37132419Why are you so booty blasted over me not wanting to play fighting games online?
>>37132422It just makes no sense.It's like playing an mmo to be alone.
>>37132440I am mostly waiting for the Story to be finished, which is why I originally replied to the other anon expressing that desire as well.Calm your autism.We can all enjoy videogames however we want to.
>>37132444>autismSays the guy afraid of casually engaging with other people...

Predators can occasionally create shadow versions of the cast (still controlled by the AI).The only times you fight another player are>when a chest is contested (if you open a chest when others aren't around it's unlikely for that to happen to you, and in the last 90 seconds chests are made uncontestable)>at the end of the game, when the player who gets the most salt becomes the bear and chases down the other playersIt's fighting AI 90% of the time with a human boss battle at the end, and the human is playing a normally unselectable and largely unexplored boss character.
