With the announcement of Jubei, BlazBlue is also officially getting a new patch, which is dubbed Central Fiction 2.0. Much like with Guilty Gear Rev 2, Arc System Works has compiled all of the major changes with every character into a .pdf file located in this link. You might already be aware that this file is entirely in Japanese, so members of the BlazBlue community have banded together to translate these changes all throughout Twitter. The changes have been compiled into a single Google document, which can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sQpDd_HQRLYoVE5pLHDhvKcUzMjdbJtKajc-mV8J_1U/edit

chrome_2017-07-17_19-43-37.pngArcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!! is halfway through its Kickstarter campaign, and thanks to its passionate fans they've already reached their initial goal of $100,000, and will be porting the game to PC via Steam!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!! is halfway through its Kickstarter campaign, and thanks to its passionate fans they've already reached their initial goal of $100,000, and will be porting the game to PC via Steam!

But, like any good Kickstarter, EXAMU has added some exciting stretch goals in hopes of bringing in more funding, and we need your help to reach them!
When the Kickstarter first launched, EXAMU worried that they wouldn't even be able to fund the game itself. But thanks to the outpouring of support in Japan and from around the world, and so they've announced these stretch goals with the intent of releasing the final, definitive Arcana Heart 3 revision.
The first stretch goal - Paracelsia (the game's boss character) as an Arcana, and updated balancing - has already been reached, and as of writing we need another $85,000 to reach the next: a new playable character, currently nicknamed Shark Girl!
Next, at $400,000, is the mysterious, dual-wielding Dark Heart, and her Arcana: Love Prison Geist! Little is known about her, but I must admit her design has me very interested.

At the $500,000 mark we see the introduction of a new boss character, Omega! Additionally, a new storyline will be added that also brings together the stories from earlier titles. At $570,000, Omega will also be added as a playable character!
We've still got a way to go before these new characters are funded, so please consider chipping in if you can! Just $25 gets you the port on Steam, in English, as well as a key for all the DLC funded by the stretch goals (not to mention a love letter from the producers), which is an incredible deal on its own. There are only 15 days left, so get it while you can!

Following the conclusion of EVO 2017's BBCF Grand Finals, Mori took to the main stage to make some announcements. What came next, not many people could have foreseen. Jubei is set to release sometime during the Summer, but that wasn't the only announcement Mori had in store for fans...

 

More information is soon to come, so stay tuned!

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 12.21.33 PM.pngHi everyone, I know I've been pretty quiet for the past few months... but for a good cause! I've been using Dantarion's hitbox viewer  to figure out frame data for BBCF! I wasn't able to figure out all values, but the majority of them are all on the frame data pages on the wiki!

http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php/BBCF/Frame_Data

They're also on GunFrame (iOS/Android app).

Unfortunately, I'm going to be very busy for the next few months with personal issues, so I need help getting the frame data onto the character pages (the ones with the images), as they still have data from the old games. If you'd like to help, feel free to start updating the pages; you don't need an account to make edits on he wiki!
If you have questions on how to edit the wiki or notice wrong values in the frame data, feel free to message me.

CDqhcf9.pngDantarion (of SFV hitbox, Kenbot and more) has released a tool that takes all the scripts that makes up character data and converts it into hitboxes. Keep in mind that this is directly from the character scripts themselves, so some data may be hard to read, but the data is all there. He also promises similar data for Xrd-R and P4AU in the future!

Be sure to thank Dantarion if you see him!

Dengeki had an event over the weekend where they showed off the console exclusive character Es! From a quick viewing of the video, some of her attacks leave a trail in the air that become attacks after a delay. She also has a way to stock a charge that powers up her specials!

Jourdal was kind enough to record the stream and put it on youtube, so those of us without Nico Premium can see it.

Heading to Evo this year? Aksys is sponsoring 2 players to go to the Toushinasai 2016 in October in Japan. Toushinasai is a spritual successor the SBO arcade tournaments of old and will be run entirely on arcade hardware (sorry pad players). You can find the rules here, but there's two ways to earn a spot:

  1. Be the highest qualifying player in the Evo Main tournament for XRD-R
  2. Win the qualifying tournament Aksys is hosting at Evo. Rules are on Aksys' website here

http://www.aksysgames.com/2016/06/21/toushinsai-qualifier-at-evo-updates/

In addition to that, people (including yours truly) will be hosting side tournaments for BB, +R, UNIEL, VS, Melty Blood, DFCI, and more! You can find more information here:

Hop to it! Some of these games don't have on site registration (BB and P4)

    • Anyone know where I can get the link for the backgrounds that appear when you use a Distortion, Overdrive Distortion, and Astral finish for Naoto specifically? There are two of the distortion backgrounds I'm looking for the blue and the red one (When in Overdrive). As for Astral's it's a red background with a black transition on the top portion of the screen. I would also like a link for the effects for Naoto's blood drives when he's charging 5D, 2D, or-J-D, etc.   (Left three pictures on the bottom to be more specific with my question.)
    • Are the weeklies at Balance Patch still happening? I crave offline matches. Rather, if there aren't any meetups in Mass these days, anyone wanna start one?
    • It's been nearly three years since anyone posted in here. There's a bit of a resurgence in some +R communities, so I figured I should make a "check-in" post.   I have been actively updating I-No's +R wiki pages for the last several years. On the main page: Overview Section is more robust with detailed explanations of her strengths and weaknesses. Suggested Video section including tutorials/basics and some highlights of what the character can do at high level. Move explanations are more detailed with tips on how to use them effectively. In Progress: Links to images with hitboxes for every frame of I-No's moves (click the notation of the move itself directly above the image to go to one). I have a couple on there like 5P, 6P, 5K. It takes a lot of work to do, so this is slow going. That 5K dodging slidehead is confirmed by the hitbox viewer. On the first frame her hurtbox rises slightly - only really enough to dodge Slidehead and nothing else (I've tested with other moves). Still cool to know about. Combo Page: Haven't touched this very much yet. There's some good carryover stuff that Mynus and some others posted. I'll get around to adding to this eventually, but it's way lower on priority compared to other things since it's already pretty good. Strategy Page: Added some stuff like HCL:E and VCL:E. More details on j.D FDC. I wrote up a big thing about Fastfall j.D last year, but the post got eaten for some reason (I just couldn't post it, and then I couldn't go back to save it). I'll have to rewrite that. It's in the plans. Also planned: Matchup specifics. Other: Thanks to the hitbox viewer and OBS I've been testing some system mechanics and making updates to those parts of the wiki as well. We can confirm that the window to Instant Block is 8 frames wide, and that the window to Slashback is 2 frames. Need to check if the SB window gets bigger on success (since that was a thing for one of the Loketest builds prior to +R's launch), among other things.   Here's hoping the next version of Guilty Gear is awesome. Based on the recent announcement that it's in development, but not far enough along to talk about, along with the "Releases in 2019" thing on ArcSys's booth at EVO this year saying "Kill la Kill" and "???", and the fact that DBFZ is running Unreal 4 whereas Xrd runs Unreal 3, I'm going to guess that the next GG release will be a major overhaul and not just another patch.
