Phyreburnz, I freaking love Krumble. Something about him is legitimately creepy. Ha ha! (Interesting idea about the multiple hits, too.)

Eeesh, I'd love to see him move. Bet it'd give people the heeby jeebies. ^_^

Manky also looks plenty fierce. He always scared the daylights out of me as a kid, but I love that gangly abomination. I'd freak if I saw that thing coming at me full speed in a level.

I'm wondering...

...if a Tiki and a Waldought could be converted into SNESed 16-bits.

Didn't really know where to put this so I set it in here, and will probably move it into the DKC4 topic.

So does anyone remember the Crash Bandicoot games for the GBA? They used the same kind of deal with DKC-3D rendered art on a 2D system. And it is from one of these games that I have an idea for a fan character that could go pretty well in DKC4.

Image

Pictured here is the sprite sheet for N-Trance, from the game Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced. I feel that somehow, this and other things from the GBA crash games would make perfect DKC related game material, including levels and such. For example, I myself tried making a DKC equivalent to N-Trance above, and, well, see for yourself.

Here are some new bonus images. I decided to edit the GBA DKC bonus images to include all of the Kongs.

Find the coin, bash the baddies, stop the barrel, find the exit, spell the word
collect the stars, grab 15 bananas, collect the bananas, collect the prize, bash the baddies (though I would call the last one K.O. the Klaptrap)

Do you think you could provide a rendition of all of those with just DK, Diddy, and Dixie for DKCX? Even if VideoViking doesn't plan on using them, I might be able to do something with them anyway.

Thanks if you do. :)

Here you go.

Some of them are hard to get balanced since there are an odd number to use. Hopefully this works well, though.

I decided to redo the colour palettes that I had done before. All of the ones with a green background are new. The blue and pink backgrounds are original, untouched sprites.

Hello, i am new here, (kinda lol)
anyways
i will upload my first DKC Custom sprite sheet,
This is a Revolver, let me explain, i thought that Klump could have a gun or something like that, so i went and made this
custom Revolver sprite sheet in the DKC style, i edited some of aperson98's Klump grenade throwing sprites on my pc, so he could shoot this gun, but i didn't upload that because it was an edit of aperson98's sprites, so i just uploaded this gun instead, i think its pretty good, especially compared to my average stuff, Enjoy.

Welcome to the forums, Oddworld-2001! That looks pretty nice in my opinion.

Phyreburnz, I was wondering, whilst I don't intend for him being a character(though it could work out since he worked out well in Tropical Freeze), could you try making those palettes fit onto Cranky Kong's sprite? I thought that would be an interesting idea. You can also try the purple/red/blue/yellow competitive palettes on all of the kongs, if you would like.

For some reason I'm making Jungle Japes. The catch? I can only use assets found in the DKC games. This is it so far. I'm not sure what to use for the door on the outhouse yet.

Final version of Melee's Jungle Japes. No door equivalent exists in any of the DKC games, so the outhouse looks a bit bare.

Hey, Ton, maybe you could fashion a door by using the archway from Kastle Kaos?

http://www.spriters-resource.com/fullview/45594/

Not sure right now what you could use for inside of the frame, but maybe you could just cut out some of the wood from the mill levels?

spaceman, I'm not really interested in making colour palettes for NPCs. I don't really see the point. I can't exactly edit them to make them playable. I also have just done regular colour palettes for the Kongs in regards to the colours you're talking about

Hey Phyre! I actually tried that, but couldn't get it to look right. If you want to give it a go, please do! You have way more experience in DKC editing. :p

Eh... I personally don't like it that much. The door does not transition well into the barrel, maybe it should have more curvature?

Yeah, it doesn't quite work. Ah well. Thanks for trying anyway! Maybe we can figure something out later.

Has anyone came up with this desert gimmick?

Image

Krocksand is a type of Krockhead that is made of pure sand, its gimmick is rise from quicksand, then moves back and forth before disappearing down the quicksand, then rises again and the pattern repeats, so you have to think before, one fake step and the Kongs would get swallowed by the quicksand.

Image

is a chinese themed Kremling, he would hurt you always with his spear, so to defeat him, you must make him locate you so he throwns his spear, this would make him defenseless, with a jump or a roll you would beat him. There could be a palette swap version where he would spin his spear to blow you like a wind, it could be dangerous since there could be a pit or any other hazard near.

Sound effects: Swooper Sounds (Throwing Spear and Hitting Spear in Wall), DKC2/3 Klinger/Kloak/Krook/Re-Coil Defeat Roar (Defeated)

Image

is a native american tribe Kutlass variant, but attacks horizontally, the only way to defeat him is making his tomahawks get stuck in the walls to jump at him.

Sound effects: Chief Thunder Chanting (Walking), Chief Thunder's Tomahawks (Hitting Tomahawks in the Wall), DKC2/3 Kremling Defeat Roar (Defeated)

Image

is not a Kremling, he fits in the regular baddies category, you first encounter them as a small weenie wolf, but when you jump at him prepare to embrace panic! He will turn into a bulky werewolf and start chasing you until you're knocked out!

Sound effects: Sabrewulf's Howl (Hitted and Transforming into Werewolf), Sabrewulf High Pitch Hit (Wolf Form Defeated), DKC2/3 Kremling Defeat Roar (Werewolf Form Defeated)

Original rips from The Spriters Resource, small edit by me, I was originally going to make the eyes blue gem colored on the Krocksand, but I discarded it.

I like these ideas a lot. What did you do to make these sprites? I'm wondering about the possibility of making multiple frames and having them animated.

The only one that I think would need some work is the native American one. I had a hard time understanding what it was supposed to be until I read the description. I would like to suggest trying to make it more minimal. I feel like there's too much going on to make it easily recognizable right away.

For Kwang I used the Kritter/Klomp/Kobbles, the conical hat and the clothes come from Raiden from Mortal Kombat 2 and the spear comes from Yaridovich from Super Mario RPG

For Kutomahawk I used obviously Kutlass, Nightwolf from Mortal Kombat 3 and Chief Thunder from Killer Instinct

For Weeniewolf, his normal wolf form I used a 3d prerendered sprite of a wolf for a head, added the eyes of Kutlass and the body from Klampon, for his huge werewolf form I used Rockrock, Kruncha, and Sabrewulf from Killer Instinct

Games like Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct (Which was also made by Rareware) and Super Mario RPG have prerendered sprites which works fine for making DKC custom sprites (Yoshi Topsy-Turvy and Mario Pinball Land might work too)

Image

is a vampire Kremling that attacks you by shooting bats named , then he transforms into one flying around, to kill him you just jump above him twice, as at the first time he turns into a Fangs. Or to kill him directly, you throw a barrel, if you try to roll at him, you get bitten.

Sound effects: GBA Kloak's Laugh (Shooting Fangses), DKC2/3 Kremling Defeat Roar (Defeated)

Image

is a huge hybrid Kremling that you can't defeat him easily with a simple jump, and attacks summoning a lightning like a rod thanks to his Tesla coil behind him, so you must throw any object at him to stun him, then jump at him.

Sound effects: Doom 1993 Zombies Sight (Trying to Stomp Him), Lightning Stroke (Lightning Zapping Coil), Doom 1993 Cyberdemon Sight (Defeated)

Image

is just a Kritter covered in wrappings that come from egyptian sarcophaguses, you must destroy the sarcophagus near to defeat him, or else you will get bored trying to stomp or roll him manytimes without any outcome.

Sound effects: Doom 1993 Hell Knight Sight (Trying to Stomp Him), Doom 1993 Archvile Roaming (Spawn from Sarcophagus), Doom 1993 Pain Elemental Hurt (Defeated)

Image

is a Kobbles that developed water gills and swims around, his pattern is similar to the Lab Assistants found in the Prehistoric Swamps from Crash 3, you can't attack them by rolling. Just jump at him to defeat him.

Sound effects: Doom 1993 Cacodemon Sight (Rising from the Water), GBA Kremling Defeated (Defeated)
