You can probably use any image-altering algorythim you want, and I don't think there's TOO much problem with pre-scaling. Who wouldn't tell the difference, really?

Yeah, I'm fairly sure each team/developer only gets one slot on the voting. It's happened this way before, and it seems like the most fair and hassle-free way to handle it.

Actually, don't we usually vote on the games and not the developers?  For part one we'll vote on the developers/teams, though.

We should definitely vote for the best game.

I suggest every developer adds the name of the artists that made the assets we would be using, for ease of browsing and comparation. Is this worth adding to the rules?

Whoever wants to do that can, but I don't think it's good as a rule.

Can I create my own assets to supplement the existing?
i.e. create my own background, download another font
Or does every single asset have to come from Part I?

A lot of characters/animations are strictly left/right.
Am I allowed to manually create an up/down/diagonal view
so I can use them for an overhead/isometric game?
The current rules say no, which means I'm forced to create
a side scroller if I want to use a lot of characters.

no you can't create new assets, but look again, there are A LOT of isometric characters.

- You should only do other types of changes (scaling, stretching, blending, etc) using code during run-time.

Damn. I made most of my art really huge (1024x1024) because I was thinking that people would be able to resize them freely.  Facepalm

There may be some cases where one can't help but cheat.

For example, there's no conceivable way in MMF2 to flip sprites horizontally (or vertically) during runtime, and yet most every sprite in the competition only provides horizontal animations in one direction.

Dang!
I will stick to said assets only.
You might want to add that to the rules.
i.e. Every asset MUST come from Part I. No supplements allowed.

I just double checked:
http://www.derekyu.com/tigs/assemblee/leech.html

The only isometric characters I've found (with walking animations and diagonals) are this awesome mech:

and awesome dragon:


I can't find ANY overhead characters that have walking animations and diagonals.
I can use left/right views while moving diagonally,
but was hoping to do better.

If anyone has found otherwise, please let me know.
Note: I haven't downloaded any sprite packs yet, and lack the ability to use 3D models.

Onward!

Just saw that you said this, Melly:

I'm going to take this to the bank since it could make all the difference between people using my art or not. (cuz it's all freaking HUGE!)  I think the performance hit of loading them full size and then scaling at run-time would make them useless.

Is it cool if I quote you at the top of my thread?

Yeah there are a lot without diagonals though, do you need diagonals for all characters?

After a first run thru the material, I am thinking we programmers should have it clear: This compo will be about creation from limitation, you won't find most of what you'd need, but you gotta improvise!
