Ultimate SNK vs. Capcom

The long awaited release for this game is finally here! 238 characters, with tons of familiar stages!

What's changed from the previous CodeBreaker build? 
  • Updated versions of characters added, as of May 2020.
  • Every character has A.I (artificial intelligence), in order to make the game more fun and challenging.
  • Designs of certain characters have been adjusted, so that they don't appear oversized and stay proportionate compared to SNK/Capcom.
  • A.I has been adjusted for some ruthlessly absurd and cheap characters (except the bosses).
  • Portraits have been added into the character select menu, instead of the 'sprite-look', in the CodeBreaker build.
  • The roster remains 99% the exact same, except for a few necessary ones added, like Shin Ryu, Omega Rugal, Oni, Mukai, Magaki and Enja.

Needless to say, the stage might be functional, but it lacks more elements. That's what we are going to add now, with different deltas. Read.
We're going to modify stage0 in order to obtain a basic layout of our future Mario stage. Basic steps to insert sprites in the SFF file using Fighter Factory, and basic code in the DEF file to generate BG stuff and display a one or two layer(s) stage Read more.


Okay, so the stage is nice and all, but how about we add some animated elements, which will be moving around the stage and give an impression of life to it. Read.

We take a look at Goku here and the changes he goes through from Dragon Ball to Dragon Ball Z. So far, we have seen Goku's character & how it doesn't change much throughout the entirety of the series. However, his behaviour changes quite a bit. If one looks close enough, one can see that Goku changes quite a lot... Read full article.

This unique article deals with a few of the changes the dub of Dragon Ball Z made to the characters' original personalities. It doesn't point out every instance because that would be too painstaking, but it does shed light on a few important ones.

The famous Funimation dub altered the Dragon Ball characters personalities quite a bit. Here's a little info on Dragon Ball (Z) characters true personalities.
