SFD 1.2.1 conversation and download

Post by Lunatic » Fri Apr 22, 2016 1:14 am

I decided to make this thread in honor of SFD 1.2.1. To those that don't understand, let me explain what made this version one of the best versions and why it still stands out to me today against the backdrop of all the newest additions to the game.

The game was still young back then, as was I. It was new, fresh, and exciting, and after playing the original Superfighters so much, seeing a new version with all these fancy bells and whistles was a great feeling and experience. The gameplay was fast! It was tight! Due to the game being handled server-side, many of the glitches that have cropped up today were non-existent. Melee was very fast, guns were solid and reliable, and the game felt balanced near perfectly. While there has been many additions and changes throughout the updates (more guns, fire, etc) I still feel like this version of the game deserves it's own spotlight for doing more than setting the standard; this version of the game was probably the pinnacle of SFD as a whole and will always be my expectation of the game when I see other versions.

Of course, these days are long behind us. Melee is much slower now, movement is slower and many actions have larger cooldowns, or we have crouch after aerial attacks and whatnot. We also don't have as much player customization (rip shoes and pants). I do appreciate where the game is now but this version will hold a special place in my heart thanks to the higher tech skill ceiling and the speedy pace of gameplay.

Here's the download for 1.2.1. While much has changed, let this version never be forgotten.

EDIT: Not only is my profile in this folder (which contains all the clothes I wore for that version), it also has my custom controls! Set them to default or change them as you like.

The touching story of someone who came before PreAlpha 1.3.0.

I liked 1.2.1, it was great. It wasn't nessecarily far from finished superfighters, but it really was great. However in my opinion it wasn't really superfighters to me. The devs have this vision of a game where it's not about how fast or how capable you are in combat, but how decisive you are in your actions. You can either fight someone head on and become aggressive, manipulate the environment to your advantage, or simply hope that luck swings in your favor so you don't lose for the 18th time in a row (true story).

I just hope the devs keep in mind that as slow as the Old Superfighters game was, the online PC community tends to abhor games that are slower paced, especially action-packed 2d platformers.

Just played 1.2.1 once then 1.3.0 was ready to download. How long was 1.2.1? About 2-3 years ago maybe?

Good old times, i remember this atmosphere back then. Dynamic fights, old styled visuals. Game was very good back then in design, i was loving it.
I am a little dissapointed in new graphics, it is more pixelated and modernised, not retro like, but still i understand that game needs to be improved and i'm not the one who decides in which way devs would like it to be.
