When Kirby eats someone, it copies his/her special.
But there's no way to distinguish which special is Kirby holding.
I get a little confused while I play as Kirby.
I would suggest to sprite Kirby's "hats", or do at least a palette swap.

Having sprited hats would look pretty bad, as it would be incredibly hard to fit them onlo his head without animating everything manually.

Palette swaps would be better, but given that we rely on them for team battles it could be even more confusing.


Overall I don't think it's that much of an issue to keep check on the ability Kirby has. As you mom always said "always pay attention to what you put in your mouth".

That is the best advice I have ever heard!

In all seriousness, it would be much easier to keep track of this if kirby inherited the power of the character himself (like in the original games) instead of gaining powers from the kirby games which have some resemblance to the absorbed opponent.

I honestly think we should do it, but perhaps after 0.9. What do you guys think?

Sorry if I am derailing the thread.

I remember that other Game Maker game, Smash Bros Rumble, did the hats thing. They were just kind of stickered on Kirby, and they looked weird as hell.

How about something similar to this? (icon from Squeak Squad, BTW)

How about using sprites with flower head item points?

The idea of an icon next to Kirby's damage meter sounds cool, how do you think we should go about it? Should be have a picture of the characters stock, a picture of Kirby wearing a character hat, or an image that describes the attack he has?

I think that a small icon of the character eaten/hat is good.

Having the character he swallowed is silly since the abilities aren't moves the characters have

Just having it say something like "FIGHTER" with a small icon like what was shown is simple and it gets what it needs done effectively

Having a character icon still technically doesn't let you know what ability you have until you use it and then you have to remember which ability goes to which character

Well that depends if Kirby will actually copy the abilities of the other fighters (which I think would be the best, but hey I'm not in charge of that stuff).

So unless something like that does happen, it would be great if the ability icon from the Kirby games would be shown somewhere on Kirby's HUD. Kinda like Little Mac's KO Meter being present on his HUD in Smash 3DS / U.

I thought about stock icon changes (ala Zelda and Sheik styled stock changes), but I'm pretty sure that would be a lot more work than necessary.
