The first team to win two rounds are the champions.


X-Men = Gambit, Sunfire, Havok
Wild Pack = Paladin, Battlestar, Silver Sable
Circus of Crime = Ringmaster, Fire-Eater / Allied = Grey Gargoyle
X-Force = Cable, Domino, Shatterstar

Ooooh, sounds fun! Will watch when I can!

I'm gonna say that the X-Men will win this rumble, overall. From what I know about these characters, they have the powers and skills to carry them through.

Their toughest challengers would be X-Force and Grey Gargoyle. X-Force is definitely my second pick out of the bunch.

Here is a new on for you Spydermann93. I had my bet on X-Force to win, though I would have liked the X-Men to win. Anyway, I now have the newest video running at 1080P and 60 fps. I messed up the first video a little by starting my project with the wrong settings & couldn't render it out the way I wanted. :doh:

Teams for Rumble #2

Justice Society of America = Flash (Jay Garrack), Atom Smasher

Fantastic Four = Thing

Avengers West Coast = Silver Centurion (Iron Man), Hawkeye

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles = Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo / Allied = Casey Jones

Btw, Electro, how did you set up these matches? Is this just Team Mode in FFX3?

Also, how do you decide on the teams? Is it prestige based? Characters that would make a fun fight? Arbitrarily? All of the above? :P

Yea the M25 skirmish watch mode is where I set it up. As for deciding the teams that's kinda tough to explain, but I'll try to explain quickly. Basically it's all about what I think would make a good video to view. For instance It would be awesome to see Hulk Vs Juggernaut Vs Thing in the comics & in freedom force as well, but for the YouTube viewer it might look like there just standing there swinging away with numbers floating off there heads. So I just try to pick teams that will move around a lot and have interesting looking powers. After picking a couple of interesting characters I run a few practice battles & then edit their AI to behave the way I want. Last I add or subtract members of a team until the teams seem evenly matched. Once satisfied that any team could win I then record the series of battles. If one of the battles was boring to watch I keep re-recording a video to replace the boring one, but has the same outcome as the original video.

Anyway, the next video is going to be an underwater battle so that should be fun to watch. These are the teams I have in mind for that fight & feel free to add some ideas.


Deep Six = Namor, Stingray, ****

Justice League = Aquaman, ****

Injustice League = Black Manta, ****

**** = ****

It came from Randomdays animal meshes Here I tried to add some of the fish meshes and put them on civilian markers to try and get them to swim around, but I couldn't get it to work.

Another really fun video, Electro! I think the match-up was pretty neat (I would love to see an Aquaman vs Attuma fight :P) and I loved Aquaman's Aquatic Allies. So cool! AND AQUAMAN THROWING TOPO!!! HAHAHA!!

One question, though. Did you customize your keyframes to have a lot of ranged attacks mimicking flying melee attacks or did you actually get melee attacks to work?  I noticed quite a few of the characters using melee anims in the "air", but the only way I know how to do that stuff is make a melee keyframe a ranged keyframe.

EDIT: Just saw Mera redirect Attuma's "punch", so yeah, melee ranged attacks it is :P

Yea I just copy some melee keyframes & paste them at the end in nifskope. Then change them to ranged, by changing the contact to leave_hand in the text keys. Finally I adjust the AI file so they use the tactic when they are flying. I normally limit the move for fliers to only use the attack on other fliers unless it's a diving animation, but since everyone is swimming I allowed them to also attack characters on the ground. Here is an example of Aquaman & Attuma's AI if anyone is interested in viewing them.

Aquaman

Attuma

I suggest that everyone add a 'TRandMove to thier character AI file. It really helps the characters keep on the move.
