btw if you guys have any suggestions (other than making the stick figures into people ) tell me and i would be happy to implement them into the game
ok... imma explain a couple problems in the game youve pointed out...
the reason the reason the background image is distorted is because i have to use a smaller image (like a 200 x 200 jpg) to use instead of one that would look better because it makes the file size alot bigger (5 times bigger to be exact).
the reason the moves are framey (hopefully your talking about "him" and not the "elements because i tried to make the elements animation flow as evenly as i could without making it excessive) are because what i do is i made him out of lights and a circle right, then i grouped it as an image and made copies and pasted them in the same spot. Then i used whats called the "Transform tool" to drag the vertecies of the lines to the new positions. I would do a couple pictures to get him from one stance to the next and then i would either a) make new images to get him back to the original position, or b) just skip that and move onto the animation part.
Animation: What i do is on the timeline i set a place object on the first frame for the 1st picture, then a remove object on the 5th of that picture. Then a place object on the fifth frame and a remove object on the 10th frame of the next and so on and so forth. Then if i didnt have images to get him back to his position, when i get to the top picture i just continue on the next set of frames with the image before the top. then so on back down to the bottom... its not really as complicated as it seems but hey, ill spend a lil more time hims movements from now on k?...
*features to come*: -Bending to the left -learn new moves -jump -health bar -a shop (just to buy like a medic kit or somthing like that
ill try to do it as soon as possible without rushing so that it looks half decent
btw: sorry but imma wait till the very end to make them into actual characters...

Hmm, I don't suppose you have ever heard of MUGEN?
It is a program used to create fighting games like Street Fighter. You can find just about anything in it, it has the ability to replicate bending really well, unfortunately, I am not very good at drawing graphics in that style.
