Wait, if others can't see one's sprites in an Online game, wouldn't that mean the gunspot is wherever a player's .j2a says it is and not what another's says?

Hm...wouldn't the game just crash if such settings were changed and the players had different anims.j2a? ;o Neobeo didn't mention any specific conditions about his test.

Anyway, I just discovered this and just wanna say this is THE best thing that ever happened to the community apart from the time that Snooze had his head stuck in that gate... :P

When you shoot in a multiplayer game, it sends a packet that says "this weapon came out from this spot". So both you and the other part(ies) see you shooting from your altered gunspot.

Ah. Well then I need to bring up that the only people who would abuse it either
A) Would want someone else to edit the .J2a for them
B) Are banned/jumped off the JJ2 cruiseboat(AKA quit playing)
C)Wouldn't crash you if you banned him for abusing the system, since you had a legitimate reason to ban that player *Looking at you, Thaspaz*

And as a whole, that list only refers to 3 people. 2 of which don't even play anymore due to bannings/quittings, thus leaving 1 player, who the majority would ban and thus end the problem

Hm, good point. Paco is right, however, it makes it near impossible to add new characters and have them work properly.

See two posts above your one.

Be a hell of a lot of work though. I may try some big replacements once sound modding becomes a reality.

Dear R3p,

I know nearly everything about Dragonball Z. I know it's called Super Sayajin, or... 'ssj', as you call it. I just said 'Blond hair' as some sort of lame joke. Thank you very much for your time.

EDIT- Editing of the coldspot is HIGHLY needed for new characters, as thats where the character touches the floor(If there is any under it. The hotspot works oppositly in the the sense it checks for the ceiling.
Sorry if thats restating old info. Also, Spaz has two varitions of his normal pose.

Hotspot is also where the seekers head to... Just saying.

Also, for the few that were actually interested: Goku will replace Devil Devan Boss, be sure to back up your Anims.j2a file, rename the content of this package to Anims.j2a and overwrite the old one.

The hotspot also works to make an animation fluidly; for example, if you put the hotspot on Jazz's eye in one frame, then on Jazz's foot in the next, then Jazz's foot will be where Jazz's eye was before.

This is precisely correct. Because the different frames actually have different dimensions (due to compression and stuff), the hotspot is the key to where the frames actually link up. Also, the sprite is drawn relative to the hotspot, which is why you see the face icons (SetID 39) as having bottom-left hotspot, because that's where the sprite "starts its drawing". Well, in actual fact you can't see the hotspot, but you can imagine where it is.

I must say, I'm proud of our community. Just a week ago, we didn't understand (nor did we even KNOW) all of this crap about hotspots, coldspots, gunspots, and such. Hopefully, this is one step closer to building a better Jazz 2.

Thank you very much. That really means a lot to me.

Anyway, a quick update: I'm working on a major rebuild of JSD. This will include a new GUI, and much faster image-processing speed. There will also be an abundance of new features , which I won't reveal, in order to build the suspense. Also, I was hoping to get more requests for new features. Don't worry if the features requested are impossible, I'd just like to know that I'm receiving feedback.

NB: since I have a real life, don't expect a very quick release. This will be a nice, slow, unrushed release, which I hope will take 4-5 days.

Well, in THAT case...

- 256 Colour PNG exporting. Yeah yeah, I know that GIF importing will fill that hole, but I like to do things the tedious way. :P
- Sound extracting/editing! Oh please!
- I dunno... menu/titlescreen graphics editing? I didn't see the graphics in a quick flick through, so I'm just assuming either they're in the J2D or I'm a blind jerk.

1. This poses complications...but since JazzSD creates an anim.j2a incompatible with an unpatched Jazz2.exe, you could perhaps 'tag' patched .exes so that people with custom anims.j2a will only be able to play with other people with patched Jazz2s.

And what about having JazzSD autopatch anims.j2a for you whenever you select a new modification, .jsds, for anims.j2a? (I'm referring back to my suggestion on the .jsd format: http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showp...9&postcount=47 ) This could create unique tags for each patched Jazz2.exe for each edited anims.j2a so people can only play with each other if they've got the same tagged Jazz2 (and therefore the same version of anims.j2a).

2. If possible, I'd like to see some more powerful colour-changing tools. Users of Fireworks may have noticed that they can select the colours of an image, shown in a palette, and then choose which colour to replace it with:

The same could be done with JazzSD but don't ask me how.
