Thread: Unnamed Special Moves
Post by: gatcholio(28366)

There are a few moves that when specialized don't get the name change.

I think Choke is one of them.

what are the others? Anyone?

Also, a question to Doug and Peter, how easy would this modification be to put into place?

Chokeslam, Toss Outta Ring, Turnbuckle Smash, Choke and Back Rake

There ones that i know of : )

Also Rope Choke but this could be assumed the same as Choke, the annoying thing is that you can't tell which one of them is which either, sometimes I want to know if I have just make a pathetic Rope Choke(Which is one of my specials) or an great Choke for 1 damage.

I have choke as a special. I never knew that I'll have to watch

There is a way to tell between rope choke, and choke. With Rope choke it'll say, "He's flailing him like a madman," or something like that.

flailing like a madman comes up after the choke does like 15 damage or something...and it happens for rope choke and ordinary choke

Hairpull and one of those high fligher moves ... you know ... the one that goes "He's dragging the NBeast to the top rope"

also don't show up

and, btw, I'd also like the special name to show up for these kinds of moves
If I'd know this, I'd never have specialised the chokeslam

You mean superplex beggar:

Oh MY! I can't believe it!
The Legend Killer is climbing up to the top rope dragging The Werewolf!
Is he? He is!
He's going to do a Majestic Mayhem.
The Legend Killer lifts him up!
They go flying down to the canvas for 29!

It does show the move name.

I think for rope choke the gametext goes like "A is choking B against the ropes, but the referee breaks it up!" The regular choke just says "A is choking B."

The move names are mentioned when they are countered.

Any move that doesn't use the name of the move in the match text will not show the move name in the match text if it's specialized either.

I'll see what I can do.

It turns out that the match commentary is hard-coded, so Peter can't simply send me a list of things to alter. If the players can post the match commentary that they want to see changed here, I can change it and send it to Peter.

sorry, Doug if this is a dumb question. But are you wanting new commentary for the special moves, such as...

gatcholio winds up and throws Insane Clown. out of the ring with his spectacular (name of special) for 46 damage !

Post by: gatcholio(28366)
2005-05-25 23:07:09
that's debatable ;)

I'm just getting clarification on what Doug is looking for and inspiring you to come up with some.
Post by: Doug the Designer(55)

No, please post what it currently says.

I suggested some commentary a while ago.

gatcholio smashes Leapin Leroy head into the turnbuckle



He's stumbling around like a drunk!

Mr. Crappy Pants grabs sligshot by the throat and slams him down for 27 damage.

Your suggested commentary is still in Peter's inbox.

suggestion for a specialised chokeslam (uppercase just for emphasis):
The Armenian Beast grabs Bubba Gump by the throat and slams him down for 12 damage.
The Armenian Beast grabs Bubba Gump by the throat and MAKES A COMMUNIST REBEL for 112 damage.

The Armenian Beast is choking S4pH for 1 damage, but the ref breaks it up!
The Armenian Beast is MAKING A SALMON MOUSSE for 35 damage, but the ref breaks it up!

Back Rake:
Immortality rakes the back of The Armenian Beast for 1 damage.
Immortality rakes the back of The Armenian Beast WITH HIS KITTY CAT for 1 damage

anyway, just some suggestions

Personally I like the unnames moves, you should be able to guess them and they are more interesting than alway stating the moves that have been done.

there's no way to tell the diference between a specialised chokeslam and a stupendous regular chokeslam

I just like to see the special name appearing
Post by: Kray(52284)
2005-05-26 20:55:21
Well once you specialise the move does the original not just get lost? I can't remember the last time I made a DDT or Shinning Wizard but they seemed to stop abruptly after I specialised them. The only reason I would even want to see the name of those specials is so that people can see really how many times I hit them with a specialised Rope Choke in a match and to easily distingush between Rope Choke and normal Choke but I see the describing of the move much better than just naming it.
Post by: gatcholio(28366)
2005-05-26 21:36:19
Does anyone have any matches with the unnamed specials coming up? If so, please post what it says here, so Doug can get them to Peter. Thanks.

I think I've seen the northern lights appear after I made the Chicken Sandwich ... but my memory isn't what is used to be

Any with Kray(20953) have the "Wormwood" which is a Rope Choke.

I think Doug needs the exact move text copied and pasted. *shrug* that's what I think he was asking for anyway.
Post by: Doug the Designer(55)

It's done. Peter came through with the stuff I needed. Looks like it's implemented already.

It looks like it hasn't been implemented yet. Sorry guys, my mistake.
