Unused images

Postby Antimatzist » Thu Jan 19, 2017 2:29 am

So somebody in my own Suikoden board looked into the Chinese PC version and found some unused images. Iirc most of them are also from this dungeon?

There are also two unused "monster" sprites. Anyone recognize them, maybe from another game?

Those two don't really look like the same style as Suikoden II. And I feel like I've seen the last one somewhere...

Actually they do look like Suikoden 2 art style, more specifically, enemy sprites when in battle. If any, bosses? It does fit on the gate with 2 sides filling up orbs: one on each side.

The 2nd one looks a bit like from the Karaya clan. Maybe like Lucia.

But either way the first one I felt I had seen it before. Will search through some leads...

Is there really a difference in the Chinese version, English version and Japanese version?

Google's reverse image search did not yield any results, unfortunately. It resembles the art style of a game which I cannot really pinpoint ...

Iirc, there's no Japanese PC version of Suikoden II, only the Chinese one. It could e that the company who did the PC port (or was it handled by Konami directly?) accidently got these two enemies from another game they were working on into the game, but it's unlikely; from what I've heard, the data structure of the PC version is very similar to the PSX version.

I have to say, the second monster sprite looks Suikoden-y with the art style of the head, but the first one is baffling me, as it also looks into the wrong direction. Also, i don't know if they have animations as well or if these are stand-still images.

Oh, well I found those sprite sheets among my files from PC version and they appear to be static images as there are no other sprites for animation. Though the four-armed womans spear is a seperate sheet for some reason.

There's also this thing in the same general area that I don't recognize along with something that sort of looks like a spiraling galaxy so it might be that this is some unused Blue Gate summon or similair and these 3 are supposed to appear in different spots on the screen which would explain why they're looking in different directions. The other summon spells are mostly static images as well.

Edit: Actually, it looks like mr Red here is supposed to have animated hair, though it looks kind of like monochrome flames or something, it's difficult to parse how the effects are supposed to look.

as there are no animation sprites, maybe they were intended to be used for a summoning spell, like the blue gate rune?
