With our release of 4.1 coming up very soon, people really want to know what has been changed! So to help tide you over until release, here are the list of changes from BC that take Minus to a whole new level! CHANGELOG Spoiler: Changelog Spoiler: Global/Codes Memory Expansion Code optimized. CPU Default Level is now set to 9, new names for CPU levels Footstools can now be performed with Taunt (Thanks to Magus and ds22) Tons of text changes/fixes, including in-game statements of things that may not work right (such as certain event matches) Smash 4 style Team Colors have been added Completely New HUD Stock Icons! (Stock Icons for our alt costumes and new characters by The Bug Man™) Coin Mode counts coins again Classic and All Star can now be played to completion Rotation Mode works again Tourney Mode redirects to Rotation for now Turbo Mode added Your favorite mode! Go nuts! Destroy your opponents by cancelling so many moves into other moves they won't know what they got combo'd by! Make mashing your controller look like true skill! Angled Camera Mode replaced with All Star Mode Your other favorite mode, you can battle foes as multiple characters! Select characters in the order you want them to be used, and beat your foes! Flower Mode replaced with Element Mode Each hit will deal a random element. In this mode, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN! Added a Ledge Grab Limit, which is set to 5 You are now only able to grab the ledge with invincibility 5 times before you have to land on the stage before you get invincibility again. This overdue code was finally put into place to fix the over prevalent amount of stall found in competitive play. Flat Shield Stun reduced from 7.4->6.4 Lowered Shield Pushback Powershield Parry added, adding the following effects to Powershield: -Reflects Projectiles -Refresh powershield window -No shield damage, stun, or pushback -Total of 5 frames of hitlag (minus 1 frame) -Instant shield drop on release shield for the next 10 frames after hitlag ends -Up to 5 frames of intangibility on shield drop, capped by 10 frames after hitlag ends Before, Powershielding sometimes wound up being worse than regular shielding. This is never going to be the case again. Controls and Rumble can now be toggled in the CSS Press X when hovering over your name to adjust controls ad Rumble Rumble for that name Spoiler: Demonstration Rematch code reworked During Pause Hold GameCube Controller: L-R-A-B-START/PAUSE Classic Controller: L-R-A-B-START Wii Remote + Nunchuck: Z-C-B-1-PLUS OR Z-B-1-MINUS-PLUS Wii Remote: B-1-2-MINUS-PLUS Upon seeing "GAME" Hold GameCube Controller: L-R-B Classic Controller: L-R-B Wii Remote + Nunchuck: Z-C OR PLUS-MINUS Wii Remote: PLUS-MINUS Return to CSS from SSS by Holding GameCube Controller: L-R-A Classic Controller: L-R-A Wii Remote + Nunchuck: Z-B-1 Wii Remote: B-1-2 Spoiler: Characters Spoiler: Falcon Some results animations reverted to 2.x.6 uTaunt Now has a YESSSSSSS sfx on it Knee of Justice (fAir) No longer forces the foes to fly in the direction Falcon is facing FALCON PUNCH! Reverse Falcon Punch now deals 1% more damage than forward Punch This is to match Reverse's properties in vBrawl PAWNCH! Fixed this move from slowing down upon landing if Falcon started it in the air Raptor Boost -Damage increased to 15% total -KBG reduced 82 -> 62 to compensate for damage increase -Shield Damage increased from 0-10 Falcon Kick -Is now B-reverseable Spoiler: DK Some results animations reverted to 2.x.6 fSmash Shield Damage: 1->10 Spoiler: Falco fAir -Looping Hitbox hitlag multiplier reduced from x0 -> x0.5 -Finishing Hitbox size 10 -> 8 fSmash Windbox no longer affects Grounded Foes Fire Bird -Distance reduced to match Fox's -Repeating Hitboxes size 8 -> 6.8 -Finishing Hitbox size 10 -> 8 While we got rid of the PERSONALLY I PREFER THE-FIRE! Ages ago, we never rebalanced the move since. Well it's about time we finally got to doing that. Spoiler: Fox Hop V 1.95 -> 2.34 Jumpsquat 3 -> 4 Wavedashing sliding off ledges is allowed in more subactions, making it behave more proper and less clunky Dash Attack Attack Cancel moved from Frame 16 -> 23 Nair Cancel frame 31 -> 25 Landlag 7 -> 9 Dair Cancel frame 31 -> 25 Landlag 9 -> 11 Fair Momentum boost x1.1 This is so the move can retain its old properties after the Gravity increase in 4.0b bThrow Endlag is cancellable starting at frame 33 Fire Fox Can now grab edge during charge animation. Can now grab the edge during the "moving" animation, instead of just the end Reflector SFX changed to be identical to Melee's BLIP BLIP BLIP BLIP BLIP Spoiler: Ganondorf Initial dash speed 1.3 -> 1.8 Max run speed 1.16 -> 1.25 Double jump multiplier .95 -> 1.05 nAir New vBrawl based combo oriented nAir Before with the Multi-hit nAir, Ganon would find that rather than delivering a devastating 4 hit combo to his foes, that they'd be escaping it mid-combo or worse, deliver a devastating 4 hit combo....to a shield and being punished afterwards. While we have tried adjusting it in the past, we have ultimately decided it would be better for Ganon to try out a new nAir instead that focuses on his combo game, since most of his other moves are already finishers. bAir Speed it up by a tiiiiiny bit dThrow Damage reduced from 15% -> 8% Wizard's Foot This move is now B-Reverseable Spoiler: Ike Some Results animations reverted to 2.x.6 fAir Removed windboxes from the landing portion of the attack Eruption Fixed full charged indicators not synching when Ike goes from Air to Ground All of Ike's fire is now Blue dabadidabada Quick Draw Can now cancel into taunts on the ground Aether Changed from no armor to Super Armor (lasts till the last 23 frames) Down Taunt Hitbox added when Ike slams his sword into the ground Spoiler: Kirby Forward Tilt (Angled Up) All Hitboxes: Trip Rate: 100% -> 0% Hitboxes 0 - 1: DMG: 5 -> 11 Hitbox 2: DMG: 4 -> 10 Angle: 361 -> 40 Inhale Odd of losing Power when hit: 128 -> 0 When you get a copy ability it is almost impossible to lose it from being hit by your opponent. Final Cutter Endlag 35 -> 25 Projectile Angle 56 -> 116 WBK 120 -> 0 KBG 100 -> 0 BKB 10 -> 90 Anti-stage-spike property added Kirby's UpB now behaves how it did during 3.Q, in which the hitbox now pulls foes towards Kirby to encourage more Kirby comboes rather than pure spacing, while also addressing the reason we removed this functionality in the first place by adding our anti-stage spike property to it. Spoiler: Bowser Jumpsquat 7 -> 6 Spotdodge Active frames increased from 3-26 to 2-26 dTilt Is now two hits, pulling foes towards Bowser with the first and letting them out with the second. Press A during the first attack to do the second. uSmash, dSmash Added the roll cancels that fSmash has on their charging portions Whirling Fortress Initial Hitbox now extends the same distance both in front and behind Bowser Endlag decreased on ground uAir Armor removed when hitboxes are not out Spoiler: Link Bair First hit has autolink angle, less endlag (10 frames?) Fair FSM between first and second hits (1.3?) Landlag window frames 2-50 -> frames 24-50 (moved from start of fair to immediately before start of second slash of fair) Arrow Can cancel arrow draw into Roll and Shield Gale Boomerang Returning dragging hitbox angle changed to 90 from 0 when reflected This eliminates a reflected Boomerang being very likely to kill Link if he doesn't shield. While this was hilarious and a long time Minus feature, we had to remove it due to giving Power Shields reflects causing the Boomerang to be a hinderance in every match-up rather than a few, and changing it to always have some sort of use and reflecting a much less fatal consequence. Bomb Pull 1.5->1.7 FSM No longer has a random chance to pull deku nut Instead, Link pulls deku nuts on a 45 second timer Link flashes white and green when a deku nut is available These changes eliminate some cheese and add some strategy to Link. Now he can't throw two bombs up in the air and mash until he gets a Deku Nut, nor can he be lucky and get two Deku Nuts in a row. On the flip side, Link can't kill himself by immediately throwing what he pulls on reflex without thinking about what he may have gotten or by doing those inputs reflexively. Now Deku Nuts have no RNG associated with them and can be utilized in ways more beneficial to Link and fair to his foes. Spoiler: Lucario - Adjusted MAX aura aura sphere size: - Base Aura Sphere Growth: 3.0 -> 1.2 - Aura Sphere Size Table: 1.0 -> 1.0 1.33 -> 1.15 1.64 -> 1.22 1.97 -> 1.43 2.34 -> 1.55 2.81 -> 2.75 3.31 -> 1.85 4.0 -> 2.1 These are all to stop an ULTRATAUNT MAX AURA Lucario from winning games just by using Aura Sphere, rather than playing the High Risk High Reward game he was designed to play. Double Team Endlang increased to prevent spam and enable Lucario being punished for Double Team Spam This isn't our ideal change to this move, but we're hoping this fixes the issues with the move for now. Spoiler: Mario dTaunt Hold it down to extend the duration of the taunt Spoiler: Marth Up Tilt (Early Hit) Hitbox 3: X Axis: 3.6 -> 5.5 Up Tilt (Late Hit) Hitbox 3: X Axis: 3.6 -> 5.5 In layman's terms, the hitboxes have been increased to match the length of the sword Spoiler: Meta Knight Win1 Changed vocal SFX from "Come back when you can put up a fight" to "Now my Power is without rival!" Forward Roll Active frames 5-12 -> 4-12 Dair Sweet spot angle 285 -> 295 Sweet spot BKB/KBG 50/50 -> 53/53 Sour spot angle 285 -> 295 Sour spot BKB/KBG 50/75 -> 53/53 These are nerfs to the move's power that should hopefully fix the issues it has Glide Attack Now transcendant Drill Rush Now transcendant Spoiler: Mewtwo Fixed his AI Spot Dodge Given the same GFX + SFX as PM Mewtwo fThrow Changed Lucario SFX to Mewtwo SFX fAir Granted a bit more range (1) kbg 95 -> 115 uAir bkb 15/24 -> 20/30 kbg 110/100 -> 90/80 Up Tilt BKB: 35 -> 45 KBG: 130 -> 110 Up Smash Hit 1 Hitbox 1: X Offset: 6 -> -6 Multihit and Final hit gain a 5th hitbox with the same properties as their 3rd Hitbox, except the X Offset is -5.5, rather than 5.5 Shadow Ball Fixed holding armored foes in hitlag forever (removed hitlag every 7 hits) Teleport Fixed Mewtwo remaining invisible if teleport into a walljump/Wallcling When ledge snapping out of teleport Mewtwo is now vulnerable for 2 frames similar to other teleportation moves Teleport Cancels on Aerials are now On-Hit only Future Sight Projectile can no longer be reflected or absorbed. Spoiler: Ness Dash Speed: 1.3 --> 1.6 Max run speed: 1.393 --> 1.65 PSI Magnet Hitbox initial frame 4 -> 1 Initial hitbox damage 5 -> 8 Jump cancel starting frame 4 -> 1 BKB 100 -> 80 Trajectory 90 -> 75 Looping hitboxes removed (Looping hitboxes previously made the damage and trajectory effectively 8 and 75 respectively) Now intangible from frames 1-4 Endlag when not cancelled reduced Hitbox position fixed to correctly match the position of PSI magnet's gfx Spoiler: Peach Backward Roll: Active frames 5-20 -> 4-20 Toad Invulnerability on successful counter 4 frames --> 10 frames Spores cannot be reflected or absorbed Peach Bomber Special Interrupt: Frame 26 -> Frame 22 Toad Interrupt: Now only happens on pressing b without control stick input instead of on any b press Turnip Pluck: Fixed item pluck rate to 1/20 instead of 1/14 Fair: Hitlag and SDI multiplier .5 -> 1 Parasol: Now correctly recovered in (hopefully) all situations Parasol fails to activate instead of immediately putting Peach into standard fall when used in the air Spoiler: Pichu Specials (Specifically his SideBs and UpBs) Can now be used again after being hit Side-Bs/Charged dair/charged fair no longer affected by hitstun Down Air Landing (Button held) Hitbox Size: 8 -> 6 HeadN hurtbox Offset (0,1,.4) -> (-1,2,.4) Stretch (0,1.5,.4) -> (2,2.5,.6) Basically pichu's hurtbox extends to cover most of his ears Fsmash Graphic effect no longer disappears on up and low tilted fsmash Spoiler: Pikachu Side Taunt: IASA frame 60 Pika PIKAA!!Pika PIKAPika PIKAPika PIKAA!!~~ UpAir: Sweetspot on the tip of the tail meteors opponents, sourspot sends them slightly downwards behind Spoiler: Olimar Spot dodge Active frames 3-20 -> 2-20 Pikmin Pluck -Now regains all height boosting charges upon entering hitstun -Momentum no longer affected by hitstun -Can now be used to meteor cancel Pikmin Chain -Now stops Olimar's downwards momentum Spoiler: Pit Backward roll active frames 4-17 -> 4-19 Wings of Icarus Can now be used up to 3 times in the air, with the counter refreshing if Pit is hit during this time Spoiler: Ivysaur Improved Entry Animation dTilt Increased Damage by 1% fSmash Slightly increased damage and knockback growth dAir Dair: Sourspot damage 2 -> 6 BKB 12 -> 13 KBG 4 -> 1 Grounded sweetspot damage 0 -> 10 Endlag frames 64 -> 52 (same as autocancel) Sweetspot sizes 4/4+1/6 -> 6+1/6 Sweetspot Y offset -10 -> -9 dThrow Damage reduced 15% -> 7% fAir fAir Sweetspot trajectory 80/70/60 -> 40 Bullet Seed AKA IvyCopter Ivycopter now regained when hit in the air Ivycopter no longer consumed when falling off the ledge with neutral-b Velocity gain on copter .325 -> .335 Velocity gain without copter .25 -> .275 Aerial non-copter horizontal drift removed Hitbox shrunken a bit Razor Leaf Critical hit active frames 21-27 -> 21-31 Giga Drain Ivysaur and her foe now gain Super Armor when this move connects Fixed the move's state not converting from air to ground when Ivysaur lands Spoiler: Charizard Fair Sweetspot damage 6-->11 Sourspot damage 7-->10 Lingering hitbox lasts 5 less frames Sweetspot hitbox is the one closer to his body instead of the disjoint dAir Now properly out for 3 frames: Frame 20 -> Frame 18-20 Blast Burn Now stalls Charizard the first time it is used in midair UpB Can now grab ledge during nearly all of up-special Stealth Rock Increased startup lag.
