Small Chao Smiley Problem.

Post by Twiddle »

...Well, not much of a problem, but more like something that really bugs me.
Notice how most Chao have white eyelids? :sway: :chaohappy:
This Chao doesn't. :wink: Why?

Some Dark Chao smileys have white eyelids... :darkhappy: :darkno:
...Some don't. :darksway: Are they ripped straight from TCG? Are there even sprites for that in TCG?

...Oh, and I like the smiley limit being six.

I suppose in the wink one, it wouldn't look too good with White eyes.

With the dark one, I cant think of anything.

Heh. I never noticed that before now. Also, I always wondered why the neutral chao has the most emotes. o.O

The only sprites that are ripped from the Tiny Chao Garden would be the Neutral Chao, excluding the Chao Wink and Cool Chao.

The reason Chao Wink doesn't have the whites of its eyes visible is because the designer ignored the other existing Chao sprites. Cool Chao lacks it for a similar reason, but it isn't as noticeable.

Personally, I think that the Hero Chao should have "blacks of its eyes", because its eyes are like inverted Neutral Chao eyes.

On that same note, the Dark Chao should have whites of its eyes when things like wink or other things occur, but I want to check it to make sure.

Nope.avi

The chao in the garden (not the TCG) have skin-colored eyelids (hero chao are white, Dark chao are a dark, DARK red, and Neutral chao depend on the type) It's only when the eyes are OPEN do you see the circle around them (as seen in these 3 :dark: :chao: :hero:
I guess the TCG changed it to make it more easily discerned. Still, it would be nice to have them consistent.

Upon closer inspection, the wink emoticon has noise artifacts scattered all over. It may have been saved as a JPEG along the way and then edited to its current form.

Without change, there can be no progress.

Also, there are some other problems with the smiles.

1: :chaohappy: : If you look closely, you can see there's a white dot in the first frame.

2: :omochao: : In the second frame, a dot disapears and it changes to a lighter color.

3: :dark: :darksurprise: : One's lighter than the other.

4: :blah: : Blurred colors.

Yeah, I'm rather picky with the quality of images =U

I did have hopes for remaking these and more at one point in time, but I got lazy and instead just made my own set. xP

Haha, interesting thread.
I created a lot (most) of the emoticons you see here myself from the sprite sheets (animating them using some gif editor that torro gave me)
I didn't know there was animated versions circling around already >_>

Uber Chaos Chao made a few additional ones. :no: :darkno: :stomp: :wink: :cry: i think
Might be a few others.
I'm gonna update them soon, since a few users here have made some good emoticons!

Mooncow, you better mean me. >:1
But yeah, I noticed them a long time ago, and I plan on making and correcting them, which I discussed with Fusion.
Currently, I only have the regular Chao emoticon submitted, but I can surely take some time today to make some Hero Chao emoticons.
