Actually the Sword of Mana magic system was cool in a way. It had a neat concept but a poor execution. Using it as a base, you could come up with around 8 offensive spells per element, that are all effective in a certain situation. Having them be unlinked to your weapon would have been wise though, ...

Well I decided to make a list of features you can expect from the early demo, this is by no means complete, just an idea of what will be ready by the first demo launch. SD3 and SwoM character leveling systems SD3 and SoM style Magic SoM style Weapons, though SD3 can be forced using the same system -...

I played through most of the game, yet never finished it. I got bored. Yeah it had a bit of the Mana vibe, but most of it was lost to the same boring thing, over and over.

LoM's magic was unique, I over all liked it a lot. SD3's was about as perfect as it get's in my mind.

I suggest disabling the layers with an emulator, then using Animget.

Stencyl policy is not to release dates. However as I understand it, the end of the year would probably be a bit early. Around May we had a nice quasi functional version (Nothing close to what Nova would have been, but still nice), but then Jon chose to write the Slickset and rewrite Stencyl for that...

Looking to work on a Mana project eh? Now, your sprites are good, but the primary colors are too contrasty and the highlights and shades aren't contrasty enough, I thought they weren't shaded at all actually. Looks like you may have used MSPaint default colors. Never a good idea. Otherwise, it looks...

You can't change your body shape or size, merely your skin tone and possibly eye shape. You may also choose your hair style and color. Everything else can be determined in game (supposing we have the spriting resources to throw at this)

I had never heard of that game before, looks interesting.

We are looking at having the armor, head, eyes, and weapon change. Skin tone and everything else can be colored differently though.

Kassidy, have you ever worked with Charas.ex? Well look it up , I'd like something similar to that to be able to be built into games. We are also looking into having new armors alter your appearance, each weapon having it's own unique sprite, etc. Note that while I'd really like to have this capabil...

Hey now Sheexy, don't be jumping too far ahead now. Anyways, I have no issue with more than one Playable character, but only if they are NPC's that are involved for their part of the story. We are not sure we'll have NPC's which can follow and act on their own accord yet. Anyways, if you want to pos...

There has been no programming work yet, and we just recently settled the Enemy Creation process issue, they will now be created the same as a character basically, but with an AI and some other stats. Which also means you can use enemy classes and races for main characters and active NPC's. It'll be ...

Well guys, I know it has been a while, but Stencyl is still being worked on, there was a major reworking of the entire engine, and we have been trying to document all the features from the Mana games for implementation, this will include every enemy that we can get. We will be starting with a SD3 ch...

Here is a complete Sprite sheet for the character. That code does work, you have to enter the code, then save, then restart the game with that code already being active.

Sheexy, mind dropping him into the gallery?

Bastards obscured the sprite, I wonder if we can find a clean version somewhere, I am not up for hacking the rom apart looking for those.
