I have to upload the ice walls in a separate file, because it was too big.

I do not have the backgrounds with it. I only did a little bit of recolouring for the DKC2 mine, and if you want that, I'll also upload it, but all I did was make it more teal to match the foreground crystals better. I used the DKC2 water foregrounds with the opacity around 85%. All the other background stuff (which I think is just the main crystals) aren't modified and are on TSR.

Here are the animations of DK floating and DK-Kiddy switch (the one that involves both slapping)

This one has ONE edited DK sprite, all the rest are in-game. The only edited sprite is the last slap when DK is in front. Normally, his hand would be vertical, but I made it horizontal to work with Kiddy better.

Phyreburnz, you done a great job at making that level design, sadly, the only Photoshop I got is Photoshop Elements 3, but it worked in it, it's a really old version my mom bought in 2004/2005, it doesn't work that well on Vista/7, but great on XP.

I'm going to do this one in a few different files.

Now, this is important, the colours in the PSD are going to be slightly different than those in the PSD. I suggest using the sprite sheets, because I have all of the animations of Klank (plus the more edited ones, like him turning and turning on Rambi), and all the animations of Rambi in the sheets, not the PSD. I guess the PSD is more for reference than anything useful, probably.

Nice job Phyreburnz. I see Klank and Rambi fell for the old "Red Kool-Aid" trick again!

:thumbs: and a :banana: if you get the reference! Also, in DKC, I think it should be called "Krool-Aid"!

Here are the "Idle" and "Floating" animations for Mr. X. They already have opacity applied (I felt 75% would be a fair amount) and the "Idle" now bobs up and down ominously. Both are saved in .PSD format.

I never chipped in my two cents, KK, but I'm really impressed by your Mr X animation. You've done a great job of breathing life into the undead. :lol:

Have you thought of animating the waist of Mr X's coat, to make it look like the tatters are swishing with his movement, or perhaps even blowing gently in the breeze? I reckon that would make the animation more dynamic, and would look great. :D

Here is my custom cloud level (using Leo's sprites), Insane Biplane. I wrote about it in the custom level idea thread. Basically, it's a flying level in which you'll be using the Funky's Flights II plane.

The file name is Funky's Flight Fright, but I've decided to change the name to Insane Biplane, so please ignore "Funky's Flight Fright."

I've actually been wanting to try this for a little while, but I've taken one of the background layers from treetop town, and edited it slightly so they can stack vertically. I forgot which treetop colour I used to create the level... and I guessed wrong the first time, so that's why I made the white one, too. I'm sure that this will work for a background, but I'm not sure what everybody would prefer to use if they use my custom level.

In the future, I'd also like to attempt to make the furthest background able to be stacked. I'm not quite sure when I'll get a chance to try the furthest background, but I promise I'll try.

Because of my vertical treetops level combining walkway elements, I actually prefer the DKC3 forest background, because the straight trees are... as strange as it may sound... makes the level too vertical. But just in case, I'm going to leave it here. Maybe if anybody else makes a vertical treetops level, or if I make one, somebody can use it.

Nice job on that background, Phyreburnz. :) I've been meaning to try my hand at modifying a few backgrounds to make them more versatile, and the Tree Top Town graphics are a good one to start with.

Since background graphics don't really fit within the sprite/animation category, why not start a new topic for Custom/Modified Backgrounds? That or we could expand the scope of this topic... but I think a new one would be the better option.

What do you guys think?

Well, other than little things that pop in my head, or suggestions I get, I am pretty much done with animating sprites... unless I go back and try to fix that horrible plane turning abomination.... err.... animation, but that's just me.

Recently, I've been focusing more on editing levels and backgrounds. It might be a good idea to separate the two into animation submissions and level/background submissions. But I just feel lonely posting here... since I'm almost the only one that posts in this section... :cry:

I fixed the order of the Dixie on ledge animation. The second layer is not used (which is why I specified), but I included it... just because, I guess.
1-6 are what she does when she first encounters the ledge, then 7-14 repeat and go back and forth (like once you get to 14, it goes back to 13, 12, 11, etc) until she's moved from said ledge.

I'm pretty sure if you downloaded the first one, you don't need to redownload. I didn't change any of the animation, just the order. I'm pretty sure that when I save the PSD, it saves the animation, too, which is why I reuploaded it. So if you did download it before, just make sure when you play the animation, you do what I said up there.

I'm going to be uploading the animations of each Kong when in a cloud level for placement and timing purposes. In case you didn't see in the animation section, I've decided that the puffs look the best when it puffs up each time a foot hits the ground, so just in case anybody needs it for placement, I'll be uploading each Kong. The puff sprites will all be the same, but the placing and timing will probably be different.

*Look back here* Depending on how much I get done and how fast, I'll probably edit this post and add the other animations.

I've completed HailFire peak! I have the icy side the first bit of the level, then a transition room from ice to fire, then the fire side. It is my hopes that somehow the Banjo-Tooie Hailfire Peak music can be used for this level :)

I did a simple recolour of Kerozene to make him blue. I would like to have him in the backgrounds of the icy and fire sides (blue for the icy, red for the fire) to make the level more similar to hailfire peak.

I know that his open hands are cut off, and I tried to edit it (I may go back later and complete it), but I was thinking he could just raise and lower his fists to pound the ground and make ice and stalactites fall.

This is just a PSD of the recolourd sprite sheet of Kerozene. Here is a fake screenshot of how Chili Bill could be put in the fire side.

I'm going to have to work out what kind of background to use for the icy side to make him fit. The fire side fits pretty well, I think. For the falling stalactite, I just took a little piece of the DKC1 cave foreground and lightened it a bit.

Right now, all I can think of to allow chilly Willy to be in the background of the icy side is to take the same thing on the lava side and turn the lava blue. Ideally, I would love to have a cave background with waterfalls and a river or pond where chilly Willy sits, but I don't know how I could accomplish this.

I was playing with it and blue lava does look way cool, but I think it's too much lava looking stuff. I'll post a fake screenshot later and you guys can let me know what you think.

Sorry for taking so long to do things! I've made a vertical(ish) DKC1 factory level. I suggest using backgrounds of the DKC3 factory tiles (which I have tile so you can see what it would look like if you used it AND I have the single ones which I did do a colour change to make it look better with the DKC1 factory).

I'm not quite sure whether or not I'd like this to be tire factory terror or not... I did name it that, but I'm thinking I want tire factory terror to be in a DKC3 factory style level. That *may* be coming soon...

I'm going to make a DKC3 factory level as tire factory terror. I was thinking of doing this last one as that, but in my mind, the third game's factory levels seem more like what I see in my head. I'm going to have to work hard on that one. I don't use tilesets; I cut bits and pieces of existing levels and edit them together. That makes certain type levels difficult to make...

I'm also going to heavily edit some things special ;) I have an idea on how to make a DKC3 factory level with a specific entrance and exit, more like the original game's exits. I promise that will be cool!

Because you can download the image, I'm not going to worry about the size, unless for some reason it still is resized when it's downloaded. As long as you can still download it, I'm not going to worry about it.

I've double-checked — the download link is the correct size.

What I find really odd (and a touch ironic) is that due to the blurring, etc. that comes with (bicubic?) resampling, the "smaller" image is more than twice the file size of the larger, higher-quality original. :roll:

Get your algorithms sorted out, dA!

Rather than re uploading an old sprite sheet I did for DK, I decided to just make a separate sprite sheet for his new horizontal rope animation.

Here it is for anybody that wants it. And just in case, as Simion and Qyz said, download it instead of saving the image because it may be resized.

*EDIT* I'm going to just fix a few things and re upload my sheet and animation!

Fixed!Here is the sprite sheet.

*EDIT SOME MORE*
Sprite sheet for DK idling on horizontal rope... Also, I've re uploaded the sprite sheet of the Kongs on the monkey bars with my updated idling frames for Dixie and DK.

Here are the sprite sheets of all of Dixie's redone crawling animation, as well as my newest version of Kiddy on two ropes.

Don't forget to download them if you want them. Just saving the image may resize it.

*I did edit this post. I didn't realize I had already linked to the monkey bars animations of all the Kongs. I did realize, though, that I never did a sprite sheet for Dixie's newest crawling animation. So I threw that together, uploaded it, and linked it.
