Bob and George, the comic strip (skin)

I still haven't recived permission to make this, so don't count on it being finished. Not that I've finished any skins lately...

http://www.bobandgeorge.com/

Check out the Archives and the Characters page I guess.

permission for what?.....its megaman with a swapped color palette.

anyway, the sheer fact that its megaman automatically makes me enjoy this skin.

Well, I want permission like I did with "Planet Zebeth," so I can make it all ... based on the comic. I should be able to post about it in their forums when they go back up. My goal would be to have him put the skin on that site as a link or a download, because that would be cool. We'll see. Will people be too confused by the fact that only the heads of characters are actual buttons?

cool

Added to the screen display + numbers, volume, and balance. I'm also showing you the "on" shuffle and the "off" repeat, to contrast with the earlier pic. And the "pressed" state of the play button. It's starting to look nice, but I'm not sure how to do the eq. The floor from the main window goes right through the EQ titlebar, as you can see. I don't really have an idea for what could be below that, except maybe for a cutaway to a different floor of the lab, or a thick black line indicating a different comic panel. *shrug* Ideas welcome at this stage.

Unfortunately, nobody's arms are really anyplace near the cbuttons. My animations are pretty much limited to faces, I'll show you my cbuttons.bmp to illustrate.
... Is Xenosomething the only person checking my thread? Not that there's anything wrong with that...

well, you dont have to have them like that.....i cant imagine how you could do anything with just a head.....even capcom would be hard pressed to do something with a 7 by 7 pixel area.(well not 7 by 7...you know what i mean )

EQ

I finished the Eq bars, and stuff. They glitch at the very top, but I'll come up with something. I'll wait longer before I post another update, maybe not until I have a good beta. Comments always welcome.

alpha

The first two windows are mosltyly done, except for the ^vX buttons. What do you guys think of the animations so far? It's hard to work with sprites so big on buttons so small, but I think I'm doing pretty well so far. Mostly.

hehe I like them ...the presets button on the eqalizer could be more visibly animated, but that's really a minor thing.

Nice! Can't wait for the rest

Pink is the color of the lab in both the comic and Megaman 7. I could use a different set of colors, that wouldn't be difficult. And I could animate the blaster as well, it's not too interesting right now, I admit. I don't know what else to do with the presets button, I only have one image for that character ^_^;;

Check out the characters section of BobAndGeorge.com, it will explain all of the recolored and otherwise altered characters. Or better yet, read the comic. http://www.bobandgeorge.com/Other/Cast.html Remember, this is a skin about a comic about a game, not a skin about a game ^_~ But to answer the question about the Preset guy, he is:
Ran Cossack
Also Known As: Ran[afk], The Commie-Bot
Current Status: Cameo-Land
Created by Dr. Cossack's daughter as a last-minute science fair project, Ran is a favorite of the community. Because of his haphazard construction, though, he breaks fairly easily and must respawn frequently.

I think I might reanimate the button so that he just dies, if I can. Just have his eyes close or turn to little X's. Ran appears for the purpose of narrating the Megaman 4 storyline, and later he cameos now and then. http://www.bobandgeorge.com/Archive/Jan03.php?date=18 "There's nothing former about this Communist!"

playlist

It's not even close to done yet, but on fist glance, what do you think of having an 8-bit playlist? I do this both because a big chunk of the comic is 8-bit, and because the 16-bit Megaman 7 sprites are gigantic. Even the 8-bit ones are bigger than I ought to be using. This is a very tricky skin. If the demand is that I use 16-bit throughout, it can be done, but I don't know.

As usual I love your work
To your question:
At first glance it doesnt really matter if you use 8-bit for the playlist, but looking closer it makes it appear like the windows are parts of different skins.

Totally redid the playlist, to better match the other windows. I dealt with the "these-sprites-don't-fit-anywhere" problem as well as I could, by making the pl stacks into what hopefully look like stacked monitors. I may jazz them up with some static or something, but hopefully you get the idea. It's not really done yet.

i dunno, this skin is lacking that nice touch you had with your other sprite skins IMO.

megaman spans across about 50 games, so dont limit yourself to just "bob and george"

now go and pluck some stuff out of megaman.exe and put it in the skin!!!

What part of "I'm making a Bob and George Winamp Skin" didn't you understand? If I felt like making an "all sorts of megaman all over the place" skin, I would. This is another Webcomic skin in the vein of Planet Zebeth, so I'm using stuff from and related to the comic. Maybe I'll make a general Megaman skin some other time. As for this skin lacking my personal touch, hopefully more of that will show up later, as I touch it up.

You watch Scrubs? Shazam!

Yeah, about the skin. It's amazing retro candy. But I don't much like the title font. Comic Sans MS is for little kids.

I wasn't trying to make it based on the comic too strictly, I'm just sticking with Megaman 7 for continuity. I understand what you're saying, but all the more recent Megaman games have even bigger sprites, and they have a different "look" from the cartoony #7.
Cleanup-- I love Scrubs, but I rarely actually see it. I may replace the title font with a doctored Megaman title screen, but I might leave it as is. Ideally it would match the title on BobandGeorge.com, but that would require more effort than I feel like using.

Still not finished, but more stuff is here. Check out the Easter Egg titlebar if you can. I think I fixed all the stuff people were complaining about. Now I think it's just Gen windows, winshades, and touchups. Mostly.

it is better that you colored all windows pink. I also like the hair of the "open-button" girl better (don't know when you changed it..)
I only don't like the "boxed" PL stacks much, but finally that's your skin, your decision.

screen

Not too much new, but I thought I'd post a screen of the new smooth pl stacks and the Media Library. There's not much left to skin, but if anybody has any suggestions to brighten it up a bit, especially the Library. Did anybody try the easter egg for the last beta? I'm gonna try to come up with some clever cursors, probably something to do with N4-T3 because that will be the most interesting to animate, but we'll see.

Nope, no cursors. If I'm ever in the mood to add cursors I may, but nothing in all of my reference stuff lends itself to being a cursor, andI'm not in the mood to make anything up. Thanks, SW. I'm going to submit the skin shortly.
