    Default FAIDAR - Original Full Game

    I'm reposting this thread, as the original one was a real mess.

    FAIDAR - Full Game

    - 8 Original characters: each one with his story and background, personal set of moves and gameplay, 2 special moves, 1 hyper move and customized combo system.
    - 8 Original Stages: based on each character
    - Completely original soundtrack
    - Original screenpack
    - High Resolution


    It's a game where building a fighting strategy is necessary before going forward: the easiest way is to go hyper instead of wasting super bar to perform specials (specials and hypers consume super bar, such as in Art of Fighting).

    The game is hella difficult, speedy and sometimes there you can turn the hyper final attack into a fatality.

    There is only Arcade mode, because something went wrong in making of screenpacks and I decided in the end that it could have become a decent "casual" fighting game.

    All graphics, audio, coding, etc. made by me between July and August 2016.

    Aaaaaand some feedback (I'm still trying to learn how to promote the post to front page X_X)

    I played it for something around 1 hour.

    I must say, I reeeeeaaaallllly like what you did here.
    I'm a man from the end of 80's, and this game makes me remember SO MUCH from old PSX/Saturn fighting games. I love the vibe :DD

    All characters are very well balanced, with some exceptions for the quick ones (the alien and the ninja), you can actually spam some moves with them, takes a good timing though.

    IMO you should change the hit sounds to something that gives more impact. What about Virtua Fighter sounds? Or something like that...

    I also miss a song in the title and select screen.

    The songs in the stages sound a bit too low for me, but I believe that is personal.

    Anyway, excelent job here, but I'm sure you can improve it even more. ;D

    yeah, I love virtua fighter 2, actually Judsa was based on Lion Rafale . :) but I can't really rip other games' work, I can be inspired but as original game anything must be "from scratch".
    the title and select screen music gave a lot problems with mp3, after ending and vs screen (I don't want to blame it on Elecbyte and Mugen, but i betatested myself many times before choosing for silence in title and vs screen, altough I think there is a vs screen music ... maybe mp3 plugins problem?).
    you can still edit the mp3 with audacity or set somewhere the audio volume. I didn't want the songs to overlap the fx.
    thank you really much, 1 hour played is a honor for a small producer like me, hope everyone were that pleased, thanks again :)

    about improving it all, I must say: it was an intense desire that burned quickly in a month, I was like possessed by a demon and managed to make everything in a month, like... full speed, 8+ hours a day working on that project...great and sincere fun after years of quitting mugen (my last relevant creation was Pingu, another "1 month creation"... but it was just a character, this time it's a full game, call it a progress :D ). I can't say when exactly that kind of inspiration will come again, but it probably will, who knows?

    Just played your original game!

    My review:

    It feels very low budget, however that's not a bad thing at all. The stuff you accomplished has given this its own style and is wonderfully enjoyable. It plays fantastically smooth, the characters are very reminiscent of popular video-game archetypes. I can see a little kingdom hearts, Mk's quan chi, and other familiar influences which makes liking these characters feel very natural. The moves themselves are borrowed from a lot of main stream games, however, they are very well executed. The music itself is very mesmerizing. I never thought original music like this would ever be this good. It's incredibly simplistic and reminds me of old school games around the sega genesis era. Its synthesized nostalgia. This game could have easily been a product in those good old days and may have had a serious following like some franchise games today.

    Your game also has a modern classic appearance as well, as if these fighters could exist in our current day and age. The first stage reminds me of a desolate fallout setting. I could not get past the first character, however, that means that you have a good challenging game and decent a.i.

    I'm gonna have to recommend this game XD

    Well done!

    Pointers & Recommendations:

    The only thing I would change, and you're probably all ready working on this, is the title screen fonts. It's the same generic mugen font. If that were changed it would feel more like its own thing rather than a mugen game.

    The one other thing though that could use a revision is your female fighter. She's not very attractive and looks uninteresting. I would go back to the drawing board on her. She fights well though but videogames which appeal to males mostly need and desire an attractive token female. Being an attractive female is something both men want in a woman and women desire for themselves to be. I would recommend maybe redoing her hair so its long and if she is going to have that big of a lower body, well then she'll have to be taller imo to balance her appearance out. If she is going to remain with short hair, then her body needs to look slimmer and leaner to fit better.

    People generally play games to escape the boring world of average looking people and settings/tasks so they need a reality where they can be big, beautiful, handsome, strong, adventurous, skilled, etc. I think that's the goal of most video games. I think you can do it by what I've seen so far.

    Yes, the budget was extremely low: 100$ (considering the amount of food, coffees and electricity). :D

    The font, yeah, I should have changed it, but I couldn't find a easy way to (I'll wait for Elecbyte to include direct .ttf compatibility, that could increase creativity in quick and low-budget projects... as told before: I was "on the run", serial producing, quantity-oriented production, etc.).
    There are also other aspects which I couldn't modify easily due to engine limits (example: the sewer stage could have needed some splash or cool reflection effect which any retro 90's game can provide).

    Female characters. I know. We are used to extra-sexy characters like B-Jenet, Christie Monteiro and such... and we (all males) would like to control extra-sexy females. But in reality, we must deal with the fact that:
    - usually female fighters are not that "sexy"
    - female people with large breasts usually don't engage themselves in fighting, to not waste their beauty (and biological function of mammary glands). good looking women usually prefer a career as models, actresses, etc. not certainly fighters.
    - there are actually 2 female characters in game
    As regards females, we all have been brainwashed by the game industry, imho. :D

    yes you're right, good videogames tend to propose stereotypes of greatness, but those are game which are meant to be sold, MUGEN is free. so all my game follows my free will. it's not accurate, I know, not perfect. but I'm still happy about the result, thinking it was a 1 month individual game.

    Going test this game NOW
    Have fun! ;)

    well I am stage and screen pack creator. I never knew you have so mush great talent. you Kinda remind of good friend of my from Italy. he work every day never have time for anything until he started making sprite digital artwork for many mugen community and he was also was part of the Scruffy Dragon team back old days when mugen was still at its peek when the program was in linux and hack window version of winmugen. now he final wanted to work with me to make a stages base off his hometown in Italy. His name is Heka, but after I look at your work I can see you put a lot hard work into it. I notices your using the older engine of winmugen technology. you shuold think about making your full game over the mugen 1.0 and 1.1.Younger Mugen Fans use the Newer Mugen Software these day and my friend did the same thing with his project as a Sprite Digital

    I know Heka, honestly I quitted contacts with him but I still remember him as well other people from the Italian scene.
    yeah I know I should use "newer" mugen versions but I just like it the way it is, feels pretty old but I don't care about the youngsters. I'm younger than them all, inside, even if I use a older operative system. :D
    Linux. Yup I love that system. I would run it full time if it wasn't for my USB connection (almost all the software I use are Linux-based software like Gimp, Blender, MyPaint, Inkscape... ). But XP is still my favourite, no matter what the "contemporary" age has to offer (I don't even need or want a smartphone, just to let you imagine my archaic mindset). It's just the best OS I've ever tried, it's "retired" but I think it's all just a commercial cospiracy to make coders invent new "brilliant" systems (which will reveal themselves more resources-consuming year by year). :D

    well, yes, the game is not unbeatable, I said it is hella difficult because it is: it's difficult if you play it with the intention of "playing" it, exploring combos, discovering any character moveset then choosing the right one, focusing on story, etc.

    of course it's also a game designed for those who just want to beat the game, disregarding creativity in fighting and preferring a more boring but effective approach.

    you can smash the same button or creatively chain different combos and still win, that's the balance I wanted in this game.

    anyway you beat the game, that's true... but Kaonom did actually give you a lesson twice :D (Kaonom is actually the anagram of "Koan" and "Om" ... buddhist principles). you just unlocked this info achievement by beating him :D

    it would be really nice to make another video that can show different characters and play more with the variety of gameplay elements (even if you don't actually beat the game or "succeeding".. just having fun with it). :)

    anyway thanks again, I really didn't expect somebody making a video of my game and I couldn't make one for hardware unability of mine.
    YEAH HAHA. but also another good fighter is Latka. if you not to careful she do her max 3000. but I was surprise that she did not instant kill me with a final blow but she did got me with her down,down foward,forward Y special move when my heath was at 1/2 percent
