Weapon Sprites[edit source]
I have a sheet full of weapon sprites but I'm not really sure if I should upload them over these files since they seem to also indicate their rarity. Maybe we could rename these sprites by adding "Icon" to them so I could post actual sprites of the weapons (and trust me they're glorious!). Plus, there are also enemy, character and other sprites, all available at SpritersResource, all thanks to volo. ;) —Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 18:51, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
I've had the weapon sprites for ages now, but they would've taken forever to give transparency and whatnot (and some would've been ruined by me trying). I agree with moving all of these to icons, I never bothered because there's so many of the blighters. But go for it! I see the characters sheet and it's glorious indeed. Separating those into spritesheets will be a definite pain, that's for sure.
EDIT - Also, you're a boss for finding that Kaimi. I haven't been to that site in quite a while, but that is really cool that they're ripping all that stuff. Means we can replace some of our things too! I can go ahead and separate/upload some of those, if you want me to? Unless you're already in the process of doing so? I don't know which ones you're doing, and I probably won't do transparency because I honestly don't remember how anymore, so yeah.
I think one of us could focus on weapon sprites and other other one on enemies, so we won't end up bumping into one another. I could take weapons, but that would require first renaming a lot of images. Also, this page could do with weapon type subpages, don't you think? It's too long IMO.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 20:56, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure about subpages. That's something that'd need further discussion. If these had more data on them, maybe. But even then, I don't think they'd really need the subpages.Alright then, I can tackle the monsters and see which ones we don't have and whatnot (and...try to figure out what's what haaa...that'll be fun). The characters can wait until afterwards, same with anything else on there. You can probably get the bot to rename all of those maybe? I'm not sure what it can do, but speak to Techno or Cat about it I suppose. You can probably do the characters quicker than weapons, if you want something that won't require lots of renaming and moving and whatnot.
Again, I don't know how the bot works so I couldn't answer heh. But yeah, once I'm done watching my YT vids for the day, I'll probably get on the monsters afterwards. Whether or not I'll also do something like split characters (if you're not going to do that right now) or the battle backgrounds or whatnot (that'll be fun to figure out what's what...) is all up in the air.
Getting to this now. Just a sidenote, I'll probably have no idea what some are, but will upload them anyways and leave it to you guys to identify since there's no way of knowing what's what on here. No names or anything about what these enemies are, which would've been SUPER helpful to have...
I can get the bot to move everything, so I'll get that done. Problem will be that it can't relink and move at the same time (or not yet it can't...;D), so I'm not sure if you want anything done about that.
Worst case scenario is broken links which can be tracked down with the Specialspace and we'll need to simply add " Icon" to file names and we'll want to do that since the files I'll upload over time will lack the " Icon" and instead of icons we'll get weapon sprites in table and that should go to Gallery subsection for each weapon type.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 23:45, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
I can get them all moved tomorrow (sorry for the delay).
Thanks gods 'cause when I say the number of files in the Weapon Icon Images category just now mu heart missed a bit (like 475 files! One could manage to like 200 but nearly 500 is too much even for the most active editors I think).—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 09:18, September 4, 2015 (UTC)
Alright, I can start the move now. Will update this when it's done.EDIT 22:58, September 4, 2015 (UTC): Done! Do your stuff, peoples.
Ah, fuck. No, it wasn't. I'll just run a mass deletion script. Sorry about that.EDIT: 00:03, September 5, 2015 (UTC) If you didn't catch the recentchanges/deletion log, I took care of that now. :P Everything okay now?
Yeah, I think it is, although I decided to with a bit different file name format for those weapon sprites: I'll be adding game of origin tag like we do for FFRK. I think it will look somewhat more organized. And no need to get those icon game of origin tagged IMO unless some will be name duplicates, but only then.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 00:07, September 5, 2015 (UTC)
Just to bring this back up, since not all sprites have been uploaded and placed here and on the proper articles. We still need the rest of the weapon sprites on this sheet uploaded:
In addition to these, I also have a set of raw sprites from within the game data that Mecorx gave to me ages ago, back last year in March. Some of these have yet to show up in-game yet, but...they're in the game's data so they'll probably show up sooner or later I'd assume. Maybe...http://www.mediafire.com/download/eoe9fnd41kaya21/PFF_Weapon_Sprites.rar
I'm thinking this page needs to be split into subpages much like how FFRK has been. Yay or nay?
