Tutorial: Create a skin

Postby MrSoulMan » Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:40 pm

Ever wanted to create a skin without having to draw it or work REALLY hard on it?
Well, there is a easier solution!

>Tutorial starts here<

All you need is - Macromedia Flash 8 (and of course knowledge to use it) and the .swf animation files from the Town of Salem Avatars Wiki: http://town-of-salem.wikia.com/wiki/Avatars
In order to download them just click on the (See animation) button under the skin, and the file will be downloaded.

Now, once you open the .swf you are most probably going to be presented with the animations, but you cant use them or do ANYTHING with them.

In order for it to work, open your Macromedia Flash 8, click on the file button then import - import to stage and choose your Town of Salem .swf file.
The models should load without a problem.
Now you can play around with the models and mix them to create interesting morphs. Also, you can even animate them!
Once you are finished with modeling, you can create animations with them or screenshot them to show to the community.
Examples of the work: https://imgur.com/a/FojY3sM and https://imgur.com/a/XjTJ09k

>Tutorial ends here<

If you want to go creative i recommend this file from the Madness Combat series (WARNING: CONTAINS BLOOD AND GORE): https://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/2d ... 5c0e7bcb80
You cant say that i didn't warn you.

This section contains images created:
UPDATE 1: https://imgur.com/a/JyEoBDY - two randomly created skins with Madness assets and a Mix of Amnesiac, Janitor and Vampire avatars.
UPDATE 2: https://imgur.com/a/aOctMXl - a little scene referencing the Janitor story on wikia.
UPDATE 3: https://imgur.com/a/Pa1JDJI - dead men tell no tales ;) - SK stabbed Investigator
UPDATE 4: https://imgur.com/a/3LxMG1Z - Up in Flames - Arsonist setting a Doctor on fire
>NEW< UPDATE 5: https://imgur.com/a/kGq3m9x - Vigilante shots a Framer - best piece of work yet
I only take ownership on the previous 6 (7) images i have created.

EARLY ASSETS ADDED: http://www.mediafire.com/file/txjo5q9is ... asstes.rar (NOTE - forgot to add casual madness assets, just ignore the README file...)
IF THERE IS A ERROR PLEASE REPORT IT TO ME! Contains only heads, bodies, weapons, faces and hats
You should also note that asset extracting is time consuming, so if updates to the file happen, they will be rare.

*NEW ASSETS (SAFE TO USE MADNESS ASSETS) - http://www.mediafire.com/file/7h2d52kjs ... adness.rar , as i promised people!

SPOTTED ERRORS:
-Sometimes two assets will be recognized as "the same thing", resulting in limiting usage of some assets. Example - mouth - shoe will be registered as "the same thing". Example 2 - in the newest update (5) Investigator skin had to use Vigilante's eyebrows due to this error.

Thanks to - Town of Salem Wikia for the source, Adobe Flash, Kenamy, BlankMediaGames, Newgrounds, shelboo and of course the original animators.
If you would like, you can post image links to your creations this thread!

HELP?
Need some? Just ask in the thread. If a question is frequent i will add a FAQ.

NOTES:
This post used to be on the "Lounge" board. Link to original version place (down): https://www.blankmediagames.com/phpbb/v ... =5&t=83654
FINISHED - A update will be coming in this month. The contents will be -safe for work- madness assets.
I am also fixing grammar mistakes from time to time. I am not from the USA or UK (and every other English speaking country i didn't mention), so my English is not perfect.
You can also find the Tutorial in the ToS Wikia Avatars page under the comment section! Thanks shelboo!

Whoa! 1000 views :D ! Thanks for stopping by!

Goals:
1500 views: New sample update!
2000 views: Animation attempt! (FINISHED - releasing soon)
3000 views + Animation samples: Ill try to get a Artwork board activated!* (may not be delivered)

NOTE: Update on 9/29/2018
-DELAYED due to school work. Ill get it done as soon as got time.

Please don't put boobs on the Serial Killer. Please don't.

Moderators note:
If i have violated a rule unknowingly, please contact me or take the post down, and i will solve the situation.
I don't take responsibility if an incident happens due to the Madness link - there was a obvious warning.
If playing around with the skins is against the rules, i will take the post down, but people should note THAT THE SKIN ANIMATIONS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE.

Have fun!

MrSoulMan 2018, files within the thread are freely usable, and i don't own any artwork that i or you could use for personal purposes.

I've linked it from the wiki in a forum post with a category attached. This makes the post appear at the bottom of the Avatars page, before the comments section.

Thanks for the guide!
SO LONG, SUCKERS!

Hey Big Money Salvia the artist here. I just want to say you could get perfect results by simply printing the picture out then tracing it with your writing utensil of choice over notebook paper or printing paper. Or you could just ditch the paper and bounce on that pen until your boy gets jealous.

Is it possible to use these in game?
The only thing I'm not joking about is that my life is a joke.
