[NOW UPDATED!] Playable Crawla
Version: v 2.0, by jcokeinfinity (CYA) jcokeinfinity is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2014

Version: SRB2 Rating:
Released: 02-28-2011 Last Update: Never Installs: 3
Characters SOCs Sprites/Graphics

After 3 attempts at a playable crawla wad, I have created a super crawla. This red crawla is equipted blue armor plates, an eye on his back and extra decoration. If you view him from the very front, he flips down his protective eye cover. This crawla's ability is float, caused by his engines on his back. (Please note: the eye cover is only visible from the very front).

The story goes like this:
Dr. Eggman wanted to create a minion with the intellegence ability to be able to use strategy and wits to be able to crush sonic and his friends. A simple mindless drone could not cut it. After much research and development, Eggman had created a super crawla with the capability to wipe out Sonic! Gifting him with Jets and armor, and state of the art programming; he released his creation. Perhaps Eggman gave his new creation more intelligence than it needed; the crawla's programming had evolved to the point that it realized it was meant for better things. Going rogue and destroying portions of the Egg Rock; it earned itself a stay in a presumably indestructible laser prison. Well, the prision was not indestructible. Now he fights alongside Sonic as a hired mercenary; defending his strict sense of justice.

New in Version 2.0
1) Crawla has been slowed down
2) Custom white spintrail
3) Flame Jets on spring-jump frames
4) Crawla Commander superframes
5) Custom CTF Flag
6) New Character Selection Pic

Used thing slots and state slots
Spoiler:
Thing 318 and State 1792, sorry if this causes any inconvenience.

Hm, I believe there were plans to make it shoot missiles and lay mines, but those were dropped I think. If so, then yes, it really has nothing going for it.

Wow, lots of appositives!

If he adds more stuff to it, like Charyb said, it could be much more fun.

I have a question, where's your awesome release? Because you sit back and say how stupid my release is without offering any tips; while at the same time you haven't released anything! This is yet another blatent form of mindless insults and hypocrisy.

I actually spent a month trying to develop these concepts, sorry if they didn't work out. Someday I might perfect the coding

Except it's not.
People are perfectly allowed to give criticism without having made anything themselves. An eye experienced in making art isn't necessarily needed to give good criticism, it is only needed that they have experienced art enough to know what is good or bad. In other words, he is perfectly allowed to give criticism because he has played SRB2, seen other character wads, and developed an eye for the good and the bad in it. That's not hypocrisy at all.

And he certainly wasn't insulting you. He was simply asking "Why? There's nothing special about it."
That's not an insult, it was a piece of criticism saying "Add something to this to make it unique, something that people will look at and say 'Cool! I'm SO playing as him!'"

Actually, he may even have been insulting you when he said this one sentence out of many. But, sheesh, get a thicker skin. It was probably just something stupid he said, not realizing that more is planned for this.

And again, I say, look at Soonata to figure out how to make things shoot. Sure, I'm not knowledgeable in coding myself, but if SpaceKGreen did it, why can't you?

It's not exactly easy to code a shooting action into a spindash without the bullet being destroyed as soon as it spawns. And my offense to what this guy said is that he just came in and told me how stupid my wad is without even giving me a suggestion of what he wants!

So jcokeinfinity is overreacting again? Calm down dude. Also Majro as Spirit Crusher (or maybe someone else) already wrote here its released, because itīs working it isnīt recolor and people may like it. Donīt forget itīs not finished yet, i trust this character will still get better.

People can get infractions for coming in and saying how stupid something is without offering any options to fix it.

First of all this guy must have forgot about other new things added to this wad

Second, coming in and saying that the developer (me) has blatently stupid ideas and that I don't know what I'm doing also breaks forum rules.

Well, then. Let me try again. All you managed to do was editing sprites that are already in the game. How do you fix that? My suggestion would be coming up with completely new sprites and not just edit ones that already exist.

The only change here that matters is Crawla being slower. The rest are just graphic changes. Having Crawla shoot is a bit interesting, but pointless in levels with no enemies, like RVZ or ERZ1.

What sense would it make to draw new Crawla sprites just for this character WAD? They'd be bound to be recolors.

Hey, people liked the Eggman WAD, and it was just sprites directly from the game. I'm perfectly fine with this Crawla, personally.

How am I supposed to make a playable crawla wad without editing the crawla sprites? I also think we can overlook the 2 levels that a shooting ability would be useless in.

Your also contridicting yourself, you said that the crawla sprites were unoriginal; yet you complain about the update only have graphics changes!

Maybe he thinks sprites are unoriginal even with updates. I agree you shouldnīt change sprites, just concentrate on that shooting please, that would make this character even better then itīs now.

It's easier said than done, I've spent about a month trying to program in a shooting action; if someone would give me help, maybe it could be done.

I'll try making a match server with this char and forcing whoever joins to turn into one of those. That would be funny.

After much consideration, I have decided to end this project. When 2.1 comes out, I will create another crawla character, this time more awesome. I have recently taken a class on photoshop so, hasta lavista paint!

I've lost mah flash drive with the original work for this wad on it! :P
A completely different crawla wad is in order once 1.2 comes out.
Sorry I've been gone for so long, I've been playing Minecraft.
