    Halo

    Uploaded to Majhost in 2014, http://www.majhost.com/gallery/MA-Devilfinch/Halo/white_drone.bmp this picture was used in a conversation regarding Drones on the Halo wiki. It's possible it was used to argue the existence of Drones with the rank of "they have white armour and they're supposed to be tougher" Ultra.
  2. Welcome to Sprite Wars, Werewolf!

  3. Hey everybody, Reputation was a feature where members could give or subtract points from each other. This was great for... Well, I'm uncertain if that golden age lasted for forty-one millenniums or forty-five seconds. It got removed. Guess what? IT'S BACK! (Kinda.) Posting quality content, discussion, tips, tricks, insight and critique will raise your rep'! So post those drawings, sprites and artwork, talk about the campaigns, throw around ideas, comment on each other's work, and increase your infamy on the block! *Offer only lasts until Deltahalo's life expires, or the heat-death of the universe. *no refunds! *not even a little bit!
  4. War scenes, interactive comic, mech! More to come.

  5. Thanks to ShogunTrooper's upload on the Discord, we aren't suffering badly from the Majhost collapse. There's a significant amount of history in there including a scene featuring the actual infamous SNOWMEN ARMY. Hello! I am visiting the angry dome because I have the ANGREH. My goal is to post more sprite comics, get more stuff done, and I've been updating my sprite topic and the free use chat, along with creating a sprite comic topic for myself and updating the interactive comic I started in 2017. Our discord is alive, thrives daily, we get new members every week or month it seems, but... *sigh* It gets kinda lonely in here, on the forums. And I don't always fit in on the discord, most of my content is met with a "nice!" and 'great works!", even though I try to mix it up and provide some semi-insightful commentary on everyone else's creations. So, that leads me to a big irony: I want my stuff noticed, but I also want the forum noticed, so I'm going to post most of my stuff on the forum, not the discord. Particularly my comics. In The War That Never Ends, there are several fronts to fight on, and I'll pick the Forum. All's quiet, but maybe if I shake it up a bit... EDIT: It's been 20 days since. I'll keep holding on & hoping. C'mon! Check out the comics! Check out the war scenes! I dare you!
  6. Most people who frequent SW and see the old comics will see backgrounds like this used here & there: This is one of the backgrounds from Front Mission: Gun Hazard. It is one of the very few you can find on The Spriters-Resource today. Seeing only destroyed city blocks (and a village in the countryside) made me wonder: where are the backgrounds for complete cityscapes in Front Mission: GH? So I got to work on a little sprite kit. And there was another one available on TSR: Maybe someone will make a sprite comic about a crew robbing a wrecked bank in a war zone or a post-apocalyptic setting. Even so, I set to work. Restored! This one was also part of the background. ^ Major props to Arima for ripping this stuff, I wouldn't be anywhere near this far along without the fact he worked hard and ripped the backgrounds which are already available. There! A nearly usable bridge. Set the building upright, added doors and window-ish thingies, ect. Thanks to Lucasodelta for helping me shade the original windows! I'm also working on fixing up this building. ALL OF THIS IS FREE USE!!!
  7. Smash Mouth and Evanescence is a good crossover, if memory serves. There are other good mashups with Smash Mouth and other music. After helping clear out space in the basement and break up a 118 year old desk to make up space for our new freezers, I needed to chill out. This video helped! "Battletech/Mechwarrior Lore : Exodus to Elementals - A Primer on the Clans [Part 1]" is informative and interesting, as is it's second part. The Black Pants Legion team put hard work into this, and it shows. The speaker's voice is calm and smooth mostly, but he gets passionate at points and can hype a character up to be an amazing war hero who equates getting shot in the head with taking the trash out every week, or beat on their image until they are the lowest of the low, and yellow-bellied, snake-tailed scoundrels. His mixture of calm and thrilling tones are great for relaxing, and I recommend giving a listen for at least twenty minutes of your time while you work on a pixel art project, unless you're someone who can't handle historians in the background whilst you go at it. Anyway, I like this video ad recommend it!

    Halo

    It's got some interesting stuff that I don't mind having in the Halo universe, but almost none of the Halo feel. The sound effects and mechanics are different. Also, what made the Banished stop using red armour for their Elites in favour of blue stuff? Seems like an attempt to copy nostalgia, without any regard for actual substance. It's Halo 4/5 with a tiny bit of older games mixed in, and is still a 343 game without Bungie's input. CE, 2, 3, ODST and Reach are not going to be replaced anytime soon, I think. Edit: The Elites in the blue armour are https://www.halopedia.org/Sangheili_Enforcer called Enforcers. They're anti-building units in Halo Wars 2, so the Banished using them in Halo Infinite makes sense. I enjoy when games at new classes of enemy.
  9. The mixture of techno and violin music is exciting and relaxing for me. I think Hideki's work is brilliant.
  10. *Tank building sounds*

      Thank ya. Your stuff looks amazing, too. That big tank type really does impress.

  11. It wasn't the Titan Empire I think, but I could not make out the sprites. The dream actually made me more interested in what you're going to come up with. 😄
  12. Nope. The Prikkis are literally THAT small! Lucasodelta made many of these vehicles, and he made them in SW scale.
  13. This is a dream I had, it's not really creepy, so I'm not putting it in the Creepy Dreams And Other Occurances topic. Dreamt I wanted to make a present for my mom, in the form of a sprite. I wanted to make my mother in pixel art form... Wearing a mask for some reason? Like, one of the cool ones that covers the face. I told Commander Evil about it in DMs and then suddenly we were talking about spriting Darth Vader, and CE said: "Take every swing and move he's ever done with a lightsaber, and sprite it." CE wanted me to sprite each lightsaber angle and pose, and I was all: O_O. Then I mentioned that I used to do lots of easy-to-spot edits where I smooshed things together to make sprites, and CE said Backtothefryingpan was building a sprite sheet based on one of SW's older factions, and was putting together edits so easily made out that it made him cringe. It was my mission to go get Back to... Not do that. And that was my dream. Like, what?

    Hello?

    Hello there! The actual forums have been a bit quiet for the last few months, but the discord server is EXTREMELY active!
  17. We already have a discord server! See:
  18. (This is Gir's profile and will be deleted if/when he provides an updated version.) Theme: https://youtu.be/enMbEl5JYk4 Name:Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Alignment: Lawful good,The closest ally of Global Defense Alliance(ADG) Technology Level: Rather than the most SW factions,Russian Armed Forces are depicted with their current military technologies,meaning that they lack of such things as Mechs,Mobile fortress/Gigantic size tanks.Lacked of any stellar interspace cruising Ability, they rely on ADG to transport their warmachines into the planet of Byarli. Notable people (if any): -Major Nestor Leskov:a VDV soldier,Veteran of various wars,meaning that he is battle-hardened -Dragunov: Originally a Character from Metal Slug Attack,got her Background story rearranged by Gir as a commander of Russian Special Forces unit "SSO" -General Daniyar Ruslanovich Gorshko,Main commander of Russian Armed Forces deployed into Byarli. -Volodya Malashenko,President of Russian Federation. -Nikolai Suvorov'Prime Minister of Russian Federation(Originally a President from C&c Generals Zero hour mod:Rise of the Reds) -Yoshino'Originally a character from Metal Slug Attack,rearranged by Gir as a Japanese SoF member assigned in a special division with Nestor and Dragunov in it. -Tanaka Mikhailov'A Japanese-Russian Spetsnaz operative. Background story: Russian Armed Forces is an Armed Forces of the Russian Federation,formed in 7 may 1992 after the dissolution of Soviet Union.The President takes the role as the Supreme leader of it.In the campaign,Russian forces landed in the Byarli along with ADG forces and quickly established perimeters on their landing zone. How to portray: APART FROM THE STEREOTYPE OF RUSSIANS WHICH YELL "URAAA","ZA RODINU!!"(for motherland),they don't phrase those.Russian soldiers excel in medium-range combat .Often they will stop or seek a cover from enemy and return fire,which makes it ideal to give support to its allies to advance.The same tactic and doctrine applies to their vehicle crews and pilots.Fighter pilots sometimes tend to merge an enemy air unit into a Dogfight, which was an outdated Air combat doctrine but inherited from their Soviet fathers.Russians mostly put an effective setup of defensive positions:either it will be their soldiers entrenchment,or their Armored vehicles set on trench,such as their T-90 tanks for example.They excel in ambushing enemies,especially ambushing armored vehicles where they set up their Anti Vehicle weapons such as TOWs in perfectly hidden places.

  20. Faction theme: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohHA8b… Name: Orks Alignment: Chaotic Neutral Technology Level: Primitive / Scavenged Background story: The Orks once struck the planet Byarli with a mighty WAAAGH! decades ago, but their warboss was killed and they were scattered, regrowing from spores over the years. If a mighty Ork were to emerge from the land or from space to unite them, they could become a powerful threat. How to portray: The Orks roam the world and raid towns and cities, looking for loot and for a good fight. Their infantry charge in massive numbers and shoot inaccurate weapons, and specialists look for things to blow up or cut up. Orks are not big on strategy. Links to sprites:
