It's interesting to see someone finally doing an action/type animation version of what looks like some RPG-Maker sprites :)

Hey there bossblues. First of all, insanely amazing work on all of your sprites. You are the reason I've bought RMMV few days ago and I'm having a blast so far. I feel like reliving Chrono Trigger but I'm the one telling the story now.

Now for the questions 

1. Are these characters the ones included in basic Time Fantasy Tiles pack, or is it completely different batch? I'm planning on purchasing all of your creations but I would rather avoid spending unecessary cash on something I already own :D

2. Your Patreon expansions (Mythical Monsters and Lich Crusaders), are they included in any other packs or are they exclusive to donating via Patreon? If they're available only through Patreon, you should definitely point it out somewhere visible for others, otherwise, many will miss these gems.

Hi

1. If you get the pack from the RPGMaker folks (on Steam or RPG Maker Web), then that pack includes the characters and tiles. On itch.io (and other sites with the general license), the character and tiles packs are separate. So if you have the base Time Fantasy pack via an RPG Maker source, then you would already have the content from this pack and the base tileset pack.

2. The Mythical Monsters and Lich Crusades packs are exclusive for patreon. All unique content!

I hope that answers your questions.

Thanks!

Looks interesting, unfortunately I can't afford for this.

When I downloaded the pack, the base tileset doesn't include chara1 or vampire sets. Is there any way to get them at the smaller size? Actually, I noticed the doors and lava aren't included at each size either.

The vampire sets were originally released as a free download on my website (they're one of the first freebies I released! - http://finalbossblues.com/timefantasy/freebies/evil-transforming-vampires/) The lava was likewise originally released on my website, but it should be on the master "water" set with a 100% size. If you don't have that file, email me.

Here's a 100% version of the vampire chars I quickly put together for you: Vamps

As for the char1 set; those characters are exclusive for use in RPGMaker and weren't included in the "general license" version of the pack. If you're missing those sets and you're using RPGMaker, send me an email and I can give them to you.

Thanks!

I gotcha. Thanks for letting me know so fast, and for the link to the vampires! And yeah, I found the lava where you it'd be. I appreciate it!

I am little disappointed with this purchase.
The "3-frame weapon or action pose" 90% of them seam to be the action pose of which the 3 frames are identical (just holding a weapon).
Those that have attack animations they are only in one direction not in 4 directions like you would see in the older Legend of Zelda games for example.

I just purchased these but cannot figure out the grid size for the sprite sheet.  26x36 seems close?

The cells for most of the sheets are 26x36 yes. Some special sprites may be a little bigger. The sprites themselves are made to look good on a 16x16 tileset grid.

can you please add some sprites to support SV battles?

Done! They'll be released soon!

Cool! Will we be provided with a link or update? Seeing as we have either bought this package or the https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/a/graphics/time-fantasy package that also contains character sprites. Or will it be a completely separate package?

How do you make this character sprite? I want to try to make my own character sprite

hello, whats the licence of your charakter sprite packs?

https://www.gamedevmarket.net/terms-conditions/#pro-licence

can i make a char maker with your pics and sell the tool?

Maybe. You can't resell the graphics so it's borderline -- Send me an email with some more details and I'll take a look.

Love all the packs.  Is there any way to purchase them all as a single pack?

Not right now. Sometimes they go on a bundle sale.

In the future I'm going to put together an ultimate bundle, but I have a couple more releases planned first! Then I'll put them all in a mega pack!
Thanks!

is this for commerical use? i want to add this asset to my engine as the default images and then sell the engine with it.

It's for commercial use for individual projects but not for reselling-- if you're selling an engine that's a special case, it might be reselling. Send me an email via timefantasy.net and maybe we can work something out.

hello, I was wondering, are these just a compilation of your other character packs, or are these materials in this, that are not in the other packs?

These are the originals. Any other packs came after, as expansions to this one.

Hello, I first wanted to say that your art looks amazing. And secondly, will purchasers be able to get these expansions for these attack animations for free or will there be a add on price?

-Thanks again

Hi there, I'm so glad I found you because I love your art. Do you have a gif or a video showing the character weapon animations/action pose? I would like to see that before I purchase this if possible. Thanks!

can i change the sprites? Change color or add items?

yes

Looks awesome. For the heroes/villians when you say.

  • Special animations: 3-frame weapon or action pose
Do you mean actual attack animations for say an action battle system? Just want to be clear on that before I make the purchase.
(Edited 1 time) (+1)(-1)

Just as a response to you and any future buyers. I had bought this pack, and they are poses. Most aren't animations that can be used in action/combat battle system.

(Edited 4 times) (+1)

The poses are animated. They are simple 3-frame "idle / weapon ready" type animations, as explained in the description.

The animations are to provide additional personality to characters or cutscenes. They can be used in rpg-style battles if wanted but that was never their purpose.

Additional "battle animations" are on the to-do list for a possible future expansion. This is a LOT of characters though so that is not an easy task.

That's understandable, I wasn't trying to be negative about the sprites, they look great. Just wanted to be honest as to what's there. I bought it expecting some basic attack animations.

I hope to see them in the future, thanks for your great work.

Battle animations would be a big plus for the project I'm working on with these.  Personally I would need side view animations to support a battle mode similar to SNES era Final Fantasy games.

Would be cool with them being offered as an additional bundle to purchase.

In the works!

yes! Atack animations should definetly be included, in a separate pack even, if you want. To simplify your work you could just animated the actual combatants and leave civilians out. I suggest you animated a couple of civilians too tho, would be cool for a bar brawl.

attack sprites likes zelda?
