Jill Valentine’s Day 2019
February 14th, 2019 by PrimeOp

I added a Valentine’s Day header to the auto-banner rotation thing, and it includes an improved Jill Valentine sprite. It’ll probably be gone by the time you read this, but you can still see Jill’s improved Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stance sprite in the Resident Evil gallery, including the new Resident Evil/Marvel vs. Capcom 2 version that I just made.

Stay tuned, because I’ve got another update coming next week!

Revamped reviews, Denjin Makai and Battle Circuit
January 19th, 2019 by PrimeOp

The first update of 2019 has a lot of “finally” like Cece Peniston as I revive a long-dead site section and add fan sprites based on two of the best mid-nineties Beat ‘Em Ups!

Reviews: dormant for a decade, I recoded and redesigned the reviews section (not the index) and modified just about every full review. They’re probably still full of sleep deprivation-induced grammatical errors, but I fixed a lot of the things that annoyed me whenever I saw the pages again. A few reviews were at least 50% rewritten. I’ll probably modify them even more, partially because the thinner page width makes the layout weird. Will I make new reviews later? **shrugs** This is still a work in progress, and the index page won’t look like the old ugly one once everything is done. For now, the Reviews are part of the Info Center area of the site.

Game Index: fixed as many of the review links as I could find and added Denjin Makai II/Guardians. BTW: the page has a list of the alternate ENG language select screen name graphics found in the OBJ TEST. Does anyone know if they appear in any variant of the game?

Sprites: new Denjin Makai II/Guardians page, including uncropped portraits.

Custom Sprites: The Battle Circuit gallery starts with Cyber Blue and the Denjin Makai gallery opens with Makai and Guardians-uniform Kurokishi. BTW: just in case you’ve never seen them, you should check out 2Dwillneverdie to see the Battle Circuit sprites Kiwi made long ago. Masterpieces, one and all.

Mini-logos: Banpresto, Denjin Makai and Denjin Makai II added to new Banpresto gallery.

The new pixel art has been added to the main image generator, as usual!

2018 Wrap-up and Unfinished Business
December 31st, 2018 by PrimeOp

One last update in 2018 with a bunch of unused stuff and to set the stage for 2019!

Custom Sprites:
Final Fight: Carlos, Lucia
Marvel Comics: Daredevil, Taskmaster, Mockingbird
DC Comics: the Question

Thanks to actress/martial artist/cosplayer Kimberly Root who came up with the pose during Free Comic Book Day at All American Comics (Warren location)!

Mini-logos: Mockingbird added to Marvel gallery

The Daredevil and Question sprites are in honor of two comic book greats we lost in 2018: Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

My plan to have more videos didn’t work out the way I’d hoped (though the really short Black Panther video turned out nicely), but I’ve put together a video with some unfinished work, including something I’ve shown teasers for in TWO year-end videos.

That third part of the video is a big reason why there weren’t that many new sprites added to the site this year. I spent a bit of 2018 working on animations you haven’t seen yet and, let’s be real, if I show them on this site before I put them in a video, they’ll be in someone else’s video before mine (with no credit). Not that I’m bitter or anything. Truth is, getting ripped off is part of what inspires me to want to make videos. Let’s see if 2019 is the year that I finally start finishing some videos!


Public plans for 2019:

  • Animation (and showing it this time) and video. I didn’t show everything in that Unfinished Business video, so some long-percolating animation and video projects will show up in 2019.
  • The Revenge of 1989: 30th anniversary edition!
  • Bring back the missing Crossup Beatdown
  • More prints, including the upcoming custom print program where you get to pick what goes into a one-of-a-kind print. Imagine being able to choose who’s in the 2018 Horror Fighter print, including a customized roster.

    More info on that next year!


That’s enough of all for 2018! Thank you for coming through to check out the site and I hope you have a Happy New Year!

Where the toys are 2018
December 21st, 2018 by PrimeOp

Custom Sprites: Roxy and Stormer make mischief on the outrageously new Jem gallery page, a new scratch-made sprite of Roadblock (v.1) joins the G.I.JOE page, Man-at-Arms finally appears on the Masters of the Universe page and Buttons McBoomBoom tries to steal the show on the Toys ‘n Toons hub page.

All of this has been added to the GFX Generator, where you’ll find a new “2018 Deadpool” option for the Marvel Legends box and (finally) word balloon options for the Kenner Super Powers tribute!


Keep an eye out for this year’s “Unfinished Business” update, which will drop before 2018 comes to a close.
“Why, is there going to be something special about it?”

There’s your answer.
