NASF 2 New Preview

Posted by Short-Factor - July 21st, 2008

Well... I've given it a lot of thought and I decided to remake Not Another Sprite Fight 2 from scratch. It is no longer 20% done.
The Luigi scene from the last post is still intact, but I decided to completely remake and amp up the fight scenes. I just got out of a bad trend of poor animation, that has been bothering me for a while. Now I am revitalized and ready to kick some ass. I also decided I might as well show Newgrounds just what to expect from NASF 2.

NASF 2 First Scene Preview

This time I'm pulling out some of the stops and really putting my self into making this movie. One of my goals is to raise the bar for sprite animation and hope that sprite movies can be more accepted, as sprite movies have been getting poor reception around the nets lately, and the reasons are obvious.
I will make some hand drawn animation soon too, so don't think I only care about sprites. I have a deep appreciation for the arts.
Anyway, please, enjoy this preview, I put a good deal of effort into this new version.

Also, a brief FAQ about the NASF series:

Q. Will NASF 2 be nothing but Mario vs Sonic?
A. Absolutely not! The introduction of various video game characters was one of the core elements that made the first NASF. I would not ruin that formula.

Q. When will it be released?
A. No date yet but we may see it in a couple months... maybe less.

Q. So... who are the characters going to be?
A. Aside from the obvious Mario and Sonic (AND LUIGI *WINK WINK*), that would be top secret.

Q. Will you use my idea(s)?
A. 99.9% chance of no. Not only is this an outlet for my best ideas (plus a few my close friends have suggested, which are good), many people these days think a movie is only art when it has some gay emo anime storyline. I've gotten suggestions like that (some people actually started writing shitty storylines for NASF) and suggestions for things that have nothing to do with NASF, like crossing over Smash Bros or Naruto. Ha ha, yeah, fuck that.

Q. Are you still working on The Master Games/Sonic vs Shadow 3/<movie name>?????
A. YES. SHUT. UP. Thank you.

Holy crap. That was such an improvement. Is it on 30 fps? The one thing that I didn't like was the ground. It was just a big linear fill, and the hills didn't meet it very well. Maybe add some grass or bushes and stuff around the bases of the hills, to make them look slightly more natural (unless it would cause too much trouble with the 3d effects.)

25 FPS.
I might add shrubbery around the hills...
But you try animating a ground with that many complex angles and movements.

Awesome. I vote a 5 out of 5.

awesome =D

I can&acute;t wait for this, good luck

This is awesome!
NOW i can't wait for the movie...

Freaking awesome, dude. Very very nice. The preview, I mean.

Boring ground, yet so beautiful

Boring... ground... QUIET YOU.

Lmao we both are trying to return respect to good old sprite movies.

additionally we both also want to step out of it and make hand drawn stuff wich is awesome : )

You are the god of sprites man, the speed, the background... everythig was perfect.

oh, yes , some mates here pointed out certain mistakes, the background floor didnt match the hills n stuff.

but no problem, I bet that can be easily changed

Actually it would be pretty hard considering I animated all of those hills individually. Its set in stone. But its not that huge of an issue is it?

That's awesome, Short-Factor. Truly awesome. Can't wait to see it. :)

Thanks Titrotu.

Looks promising. What kind of drawn animation are you planning on doing?

Many kinds.

you got a special sense of humour for the sprites, i want to see this finished :D

Thanks Osuka, I won't let you down!

wtf?! 8% complete!!??
damn this is going to be one heck of a flash movie!

Won't be as long as the first NASF but it will be quite long.

Good stuff! Your style of sprite fights is right up there with Alvin-Earthworm ^.^!

I would prefer to branch out from Alvin's style, which has been done to death now and is becoming overrated and slowly becoming hated. As much as a compliment as that is, I must keep my individuality.

Nice psuedo 3D effects, Nice choice of music, Great detail to the little things, the ground dosent really match the hills but I don't think it is that much of a problem, I pretty much like it.
Keep it up this is truly amazing work.
Vote : 5/5.



You know... honestly... I have the STRANGEST feeling that Luigi will win the whole thing.

Like he'll crash the Tornado into Mario and Sonic and defeat them both, somehow.

It'd be different, and fun to watch, so if that's true: I'll enjoy it.

Can you give us any more sneak peaks, or give us info on new characters that will make an appearance? I mean, you've already told us that Tails goes &quot;bye-bye&quot; so what's the harm in telling us a character who makes it in? Samus? Donkey Kong? Crono? Any of those?

Also, is Shadow part of the fight too; as he's made a few appearances in the original to help Sonic out. Since Tail, driving the airplane that carried Mario and Sonic a bit in the first one, was &quot;defeated&quot; meaning that he was in the fight, does that mean the same for Shadow?

BTW: I'm new, but I've literally watches NASF at least 20 times. I just love it so much! Keep up the good work!

Not using your ideas.
Not releasing characters.
Not revealing info.
No more previews. *Update* Actually I'm releasing one more preview.
I hope that answers your questions, because that's all you'll get for them.

holy fucking shit that was flawless. seriously i didnt detect any flaw that crap about the ground is not a big deal so i wont count it as one. man you have improved alot in your putting in 3D effects wich is not seen much in sprites and animation has also improved. i cant wait to see the rest good luck

Most people don't seem to realize its not actually 3D, just scaling and motion tweens. Also there are guidelines to making 3D effects look right, so it is harder than it seems. I have come up with quite a few theories for making more complex 3D effects in Flash and not many have worked so far, sadly.

Can't wait. It looks terrific! :D

Instead of making this, why don't you get on with making Sonic vs Shadow 3.
It's been years now, it dosen't take this long

I never liked the Sonic vs Shadow series, all the movie was was a test animation. I didn't mean for it to go this far.
NASF is my favorite and largest project to date, and I would much rather make the sequel to NASF than Sonic vs Shadow any day.
But I WILL eventually make Sonic vs Shadow 3, so please be patient. I consider NASF 2 to be of far greater importance.
