Anonymous You're Photoshopping the screencaps from Miiverse, right? What is your process correcting that yellow tint?
I just grab screencaps of the portraits in neutral lighting so I don’t have to do any color editing. This is just for consistency’s sake and also it’s a lot less work in the long run.
All the portraits when you read support conversations within a playthrough (so not in the Support Log) have neutral lighting, as do the Harvest Scramble and Hot Springs Scramble conversations, so that’s where I get each of the characters’ various expressions.
For the base sprite (the one I actually clean up), I use the level up screen with the black background (like this) since it’s the most complete view of the portrait you can get in the game. I grab these from the Champions of Yore 1 map because they also have the neutral lighting.
And let me tell you, if the effin’ support log portraits JUST DIDN’T HAVE THE RED TINT MY LIFE WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER.
Anonymous In the afterMarth of the most recent character announcement, Chrom still thinks it's an halLucination that his daughter and best friend/wife/son-in-law are Robin' him of his spot as playable character. But who knows, maybe he just wasn't Ike-onic enough?
this is literally the best message I have ever received
Anonymous Are all of the sprites made with screen captures? How do you do it?
Yup! I just erase the parts around the characters’ portraits to make “sprites”, haha. It’s a super crude method but it works well enough and idk how to rip data from 3DS cartridges (it doesn’t seem like there’s really a way yet? not sure on this but I couldn’t find any info). All it takes is a careful touch and Photoshop, really.
venndigo Thoughts on Tharja/MU? I'm thinking of marrying her in my next playthrough (because I love Noire) but I don't really know what to expect from her supports.
I honestly don’t care for that pairing at all, haha. I think Tharja’s obsession with Robin is easily the worst part of her character though so I’m heavily biased.
Support-wise…they’re actually pretty boring? Like, I was expecting maybe Tharja shedding some light on why exactly she’s so fixated on Robin (maybe it’s the lips—/punched) or something more than just bog-standard “i’m going to change who i am so you like me more!!” “no don’t do that” “ok” (with a side helping of “i am suddenly ill for no discernible reason i shall now pass out” “oh no he is ill, i will take this chance to show how ~caring and tender~ i actually am, aren’t i so caring and tender!!”). There wasn’t really any fleshing out the characters, Robin especially was kind of just a passive presence in the supports, and the S rank was really abrupt and flat.
And can’t forget Tharja’s confession line. Hahaha, marriage under threat of murder! Cool!! :|
That said, if you like Noire a lot it’s not the worst marriage ever (and she’ll be an incredible unit so at least there’s that). I do suggest reading the supports yourself and forming your own opinion if you haven’t already, but uh don’t expect anything super special in terms of developing either of the characters. :V
Anonymous can you offer your opinion on which dlc chapters are the more "worthwhile" ones? prioritizing and all that goodness -u-
The quick version: - Do you like the characters and their interactions? Future Past pack and Scramble pack, all the way. - Do you want some more challenge and really flex your abilities to its limits? Apotheosis, the maps that give skills to help out for Apotheosis (Rogues and Redeemers 3 is the big one), and to a lesser extent, the Challenge maps (Death’s Embrace, Five-Anna Firefight, Roster Rescue).
