    Jeeze, this battlebook stuff looks complicated to my tiny brain. I've played fight rps before but there's not really a good set of rules for pure text. Then there's adventure rps with dice rolling...I liked those better. Dunno if dicerolling is your style though.

    Holy crap!, if all of that talent would be interested that would be amazing for starters, and if they would be interested in working with me, (pretty easy to work with btw) but the details would be simple very simple really. Not only the contest could be done and in pretty good fashion, but game wise the results would be well amazing. If the artist also choose, they can add that characters moves too make portrait(s) logo's the whole works! If they would be interested and still music and voice can be done too.

    -Ahem- but this is a "What if idea...Right?"

    And... got it I'm going to take a look at this and have some people to test a theory for me Thanks Eradose!
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 7, 2017 ---

    Well currently I just meant for the game to be a video game, you know grab an xbox usb get the game and start swinging, but I still think inspiration can come from anywhere. hence anyone can voice their ideas, as I'm curious about an fighting made, but please voice your ideas for characters, voice, music, anything really.
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 7, 2017 ---
    Gotcha, I'll do just that.

    Same post. Just included Anthronauts as DLC.

    But yeah, it is a what if. The Katbox is just a small business thing and can take years for something like this to actually happen.

    what would be the style for the characters in the game in terms of fighting flow
    or layout also what type of music would be done for it would members be interested in a cartoon type flow or full realistic style
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 13, 2017 ---
    So about the contest for characters...Who would be interested?

    Disqualifying myself right away. Anna has no set combat form, even after years of trying to come up with one. So I doubt I'd have anything to offer to the roster.

    Not even Lilith? Suit yourself. I was just making a roster for fun.

    Lilith might be one of my characters, but she's not my mascot. If only one is going to get in, it has to be the iconic one.

    Try, you know fighting is the platform so from there try to make a fighter. If interested I can help just start a conversation if interested, of interested try to ask for help after that's the point, to promote communication between members and artist here.
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 13, 2017, Original Post Date: Mar 13, 2017 ---
    It's a good idea if members are not interested them maybe artist would be interested instead, also to gain interest, and something I'll need anyway those that enter can get a beta copy of the game, or maybe a 3d render of their character. What do you guys think good prizes or maybe something better?

    I don't think you're hearing me correctly. Then again, I don't think I worded it correctly. Making moves and abilities are the easy part for Anna. It's just that, since 2009, I have been trying to design Anna's combat suit. Every design I came up with I threw out because it didn't fit. Every. Single. Time. I've never liked any style I came up with, and often, it never looks functional (as it needs to fit her skills, abilities, and the whole "upgrade to G-Emulator" thing).

    However, if you're so desperate to see Anna and Lilith fight...

    I know what you mean by that believe me I'm still working on a style for Ace. If interested in crating a new character let me know I've been interested in doing such a thing.
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 18, 2017, Original Post Date: Mar 15, 2017 ---
    So I got to searching for a game engine to make the game and thought oh crap this is going to be one costly project, but it look like fortune smiled on me and I got a pretty good deal lined up for one and for a great price, anyway I just want to announce that if the members are truly interested, I'll see about starting a contest for an 3d KB fighter game. So what are everyone's thought's about this would anyone be interested in taking part and want to enter characters?
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 20, 2017 ---
    I have a an idea perhaps a mini contest as to what the name of the game will be? I already have some names in mind but what do you think it should be named?
    Will I have any "challengers" of this task?

    Took me about a while to get this set up. In case if you're wondering why I didn't put up characters for Yosh or Caribbean Blue, it's because I never got around to reading them. KB Battle Royale.jpg

    That's one heck of a line up, but what about those that wish to enter a character after all it's really about members wanting to enter the contest.
    Also it seems like I got the ok for the game so, if I haven't announced I will now the Katbox forums first 3d game has officially started, and I need members that are interested, to send some characters "mainly posing in a stance or something like that." The reason for this is to test the alpha opening for the game. for further details, please feel free to start a conversation with me. (I'm more active this way.)

    Oh! and BTW A name for the game can be underway also, so feel free to talk about this and I already have some ideas, but I want to hear from members here, and to get a feel for what the project I'm about to start.

    How about Katbox Furrious Fighters? A gigantic roster seems...less feasible. That's a lot of fighting styles and animations to code in.

    Tell me about it, but still it would be a blast to play like this, sadly I cannot code that well as I'm by myself in all this thus the contest and open door policy for getting help. As for a roster not sure how many members can enter. The engine can hold a good amount. (I think as many as that list ironically)


    As for the name, it's a good name.

    So far what I have is:
    Chaos Arena
    Katbox Arena
    Katbox Furrious Fighters


    I have a few more too from members, so please post your ideas everyone.

    I'd like to revise my title pitch to "Chaos Arena: Battle Nexus". The idea is that if we do sequels (and that's a big "if" at this point, since we need a game first before talking about that), we can replace the subtitle to represent a plot point or overarching plot.

    I think so but I never searched through the program to see so it's still viable, and change accepted.
    --- Double Post Merged, Apr 2, 2017, Original Post Date: Apr 2, 2017 ---
    Got some good names, and it would look good, but what would the logo look like?
    --- Double Post Merged, Apr 7, 2017 ---
    Well guys I guess I got to cancel the project....NAHH just kidding, but as for the contest in terms of the game title it's going to start
    I know, I didn't even give rules or nothing so, here goes.

    The rules are simple just make a title logo of the name design.
    You can use any program, but the end result must be in .png format. However there is an exception for GIMP as I actually have the program.
    Since this is my first time attempting this, the contest will be open to anyone, however time will be limited. The winner will be presented in the alpha video, yep you heard me. I'm actually going to post how the game will start (and maybe future progress. Dunno kinda embarrassed and feel nervous as is) showing the winning logo. Any questions, please feel free to ask. The deadline is 4/9/17 depending on the number of entrants the time can change, but so far I only have 3 contestants.

    and the names for titles are
    Chaos Arena
    Katbox Arena (already have the logo from this person)
    Katbox Furrious Fighters

    This is mainly to help gain interest, and to get ready as the character contest will be happening soon. If I haven't said it on a previous post, I will now,
    I am going to attempt a 3d fighting game, as I recently got the game engine, and developing as of this very post. The characters in it will be made by the members here as all of you will be the biggest influence. From music stages and even voice acting it will be pretty open if anyone have questions please ask.

    and to answer a few

    Q:Meijin will we have to make 3d characters?
    A:No, I'll do them. I know it's a task, but I got a system to help out

    Q:Will the game cost anything?
    A:Well I do need some bills paid and...Nahh this game will be free to members here at least till the foreseeable future.

    Q:How will this contest work once started?
    A:Dunno I'm just winging it for now, Heck I don't even know if the contest will even be allowed, Admins may just tell me not to do this.

    Q: When will this contest start?
    A:That depends on the results as of this "contest", and how quickly I can master this game's programming,
    remember I'm doing this solo so be easy on me ok.

    well that's all I got for now, again feel free to ask questions about all of this as I'm usually online anyway. Now I got to get master this games program before that time till then later. Oh BTW before I take off on an all niter and dayer I may need a new backdrop picture because this is kinda scary as mentioned by some.


    TitleBK.png

    so yeah, now I'll see you later.

    Eh.... I see ARA on there, but she's not really a combat unit android. Princess Aya on the other hand can swing around a heavy club like weapon with little effort. But of course, it depends on if FluffKevlar would use either.

    As for Yosh, Phil is the only one I can think for that. And as for Caribbean Blue, ALL OF THE NEKOCATS! We've all seen them fight, and Kimi's "final form" would be killer to use for a finishing move. The only problem is defining moves for characters who have similar weapons (such as Kimi and Yuki, or Mina and Muna) to make them feel different from each other.

    The smiley cat face came out way more serious than intended <.<
    Will probably try my hand on some more versions later but for now, it's time to go to work.

    It's ok I just instead send them via conversation when you get time. I'll accept them and change if needed, I also hope you like the little "gift" I sent you keep it under wraps now.

    Yea it seems to work well with that layout. I don't think I could "spoil" things even if I wanted, nobody would see it anyways lol.

    And the winner is... F-Frost



    Congratulations, as discussed you can make changes as you see fit, and when you want. If you are also interested, you can work with me on other ideas and beta test as well as receive future developments.
