you might be asking yourself, “What is this project all about?” Well,
what I have done here was recreated the SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters
was released for the Neo-Geo Pocket Color) into actual playing cards,
you can play the game with your friends as a physical card game.
Originally released in 1999 and many of the rules that have been
to this project were part of the 2nd game in the series which was never
released in the US.
The project originally stared in January of 2001. I never was very happy with the original
design as it looked very amaturish. One decade later, I decided to breath new life into the project.
What you see in front of you is the 1.0 product. I feel as though it is
now to a point where I can be happy with the looks and feel of the
cards. I would eventually like to see every card have fan art on them.
This has been a labor of love ever since the beginning. I
have never made one cent from this project and I never will. This is
available to all for free. If you want to print your own cards that will be of
course at your own expense; either printing them at home or getting a print shop to do this for you.
project was originally created for my own educational purposes. The
idea was to create a card game by
using my training as a graphic artist. All images
used in the card game fall under the Fair
Use Act. If you find any art on these cards that you own the rights to
know and I will give you credit for your work or I will have it
cards marked as “Signature Series” have been used by permission the
artists or those who commissioned the artwork. The last thing I would
ever want to do is upset anyone over
this project. Especially SNK or Capcom. Without their great games I
would have missed out on a lot of entertainment.
|Welcome to Card Fighter Project 1.0 - 7/23/2016
Today is a very special day indeed. For
a project that began in 2001 that has gone through an evolutionary
period and now into what I can consider a finished product. I have
gone back through and rebuilt all the cards that I redesigned
starting in 2013 to make the card descriptions more legible and
easier to edit for those interested in translating the project into
other languages. I think part of the problem in the past with getting
them translated was the way I had the source files set up, but now
they are ready to make the task easier.
I have also
implemented fauxlographic cards. By this I mean, any cards that are
ranked "S" now have an alternative graphic set to make them
appear as holographic cards. It was proving to be way to expensive to
have them actually made and my method of holographic cards would have
been too hard for me to do them for everyone and the end results were
not all that great. So with that I give you fauxlographic cards.
the great help that I got from Alex Nguyen the 424 card deck is finally
complete! He helped out with the last two pieces of art that was needed
to finish the main leg of the project. I'm now putting my focus on
finishing swapping out the font to make all cards more legible and
standardizing the card layout, for those who may come along to do a
translation of the game. (This will streamline the process for them).
|ACHIEVMENT UNLOCKED - All Cards Complete - 5/23/16
It's been a long journey, but it's almost 100% complete. Over
the past couple months I have been searching for errors and making
future plans for CFP. If you follow along on the Facebook page you have
probably been noticing quite a few updates. One of which is a contest
that a winner will be drawn in 10 days. Other issues include fixing
rules on cards or other simple errors. As of now I believe all errors
have been fixed and we are just waiting on the last two pieces of
artwork to be completed.
