New site features: Characters in profiles and searching by character in the Fight Tracker

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 28, 2013 at 12:05 a.m. PDT
TheUncharted and the rest of the EventHubs crew are very happy to announce the launch of a new site feature — the ability to display which characters you play in each of your favorite tournament fighting games, and also the capability to look for other players to compete against based on the characters they play.

All you need to do is simply edit your profile and after adding which games you play — for any of the tournament games in our lineup — you can designate whoever your main character(s) are. Here are a few images to show you how this works. The first image (left) shows the location of the new add character option, the second (middle) shows the easy drag and drop interface, and the third (right) displays what your new profile page looks like once the process is done.

Following up on this announcement, we've also expanded the search functionality of our handy Fight Tracker to include characters, allowing you to get very specific results. For example, say you need to find someone who plays Gen in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012. With our advanced search, you can now find a SSF4 AE v2012 player who rates themselves a 7 or above, plays Gen and lives within a 100 mile square radius — all with just a few mouse clicks.


Click images for larger versions

This adds some very high level functions to our website — and we're definitely not done yet. In the future, we're going to be rolling out some more killer bells and whistles associated with these things, but you'll have to stay tuned to the front page to see what it's all about.

Also, not every game will have the ability to add characters to it, with the main criteria being it needs to be played regularly in a tournament setting. If you'd like to see these games have the ability to add characters to them, try and help them get better tournament support.

• Darkstalkers Resurrection
• Tekken 6
• JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD
• Tatsunoko vs. Capcom
• Marvel vs. Capcom Origins
• Marvel vs. Capcom 2

As always, if you have any feedback, or run into any bugs, feel free to drop us a line here in the comments. Enjoy.

The VF5 section needs updating badly. I can't select my characters until they're actually listed.

keijukaze said on March 26, 2013 at 10:21 p.m.

Tekken seems to be missing some characters. Overall its great.

NoizyChild said on March 26, 2013 at 10:21 p.m.

Profile already updated. Nice and simple interface. Job well done, guys.

AnkiRendan said on March 26, 2013 at 10:21 p.m.

So it wasn't my imagination. TTT2 is missing Xiaoyu and Miharu.

wonzan said on March 26, 2013 at 10:22 p.m.

sweet, all done editing =D

#9
ScrubStep said on March 26, 2013 at 10:23 p.m.

AMAZING, also, should we post things here like #8? Or is there a specific place to send messages.

Sonya is missing from the MK9 line up.

#10
J_Tier said on March 26, 2013 at 10:26 p.m.

This is awesome! Tatsunoko hasn't been filled in yet, but that's not a priority. Also, PSASBR is still incomplete and needs to include Zeus and Isaac too.

#11
xBMxSage said on March 26, 2013 at 10:35 p.m.

Been waiting for this. Great job!

#12
icejohn said on March 26, 2013 at 10:36 p.m.

ScrubStep said on March 26, 2013 at 10:40 p.m.

Any chance we can swap around our spotlighted games? I notices that it puts them in order of your personal skill rank, but i'd like to change it for relevence. For example, im much better as SSBM than i am at TTT2, but im far more inclined to play TTT2 these days, so id like to have it in my main area... did that make sense? :/

#17
rakuko said on March 26, 2013 at 10:45 p.m.

awesome!

Catalyst: ST doesnt have any character choices

#20
GirlsOfGaming said on March 26, 2013 at 10:51 p.m.

kof13 missing some characters as well. otherwise nice job

#21
massi4h said on March 26, 2013 at 10:52 p.m.

Awesome. SSBM is missing Sheik and ST and MvC2 are missing everything but you guys probably already know that.

#22
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 10:54 p.m.

Sorry about that, TTT2's missing characters should all be there now. Will be following up on the rest of the games with missing characters very shortly. Looks like some of our data entry was off.

#23
Snipeclips said on March 26, 2013 at 10:57 p.m.

Sweet. Great job guys. Loved the fixes you've done to it.

#24
PoweredByProtein said on March 26, 2013 at 11:02 p.m.

Skullgirls won't let you put in teams, only single characters. Please fix it.

#25
Devdan said on March 26, 2013 at 11:02 p.m.

Awesome. Was a little annoyed at first that VF5 is missing the R additions, but now that I see that it's not (even close to) alone in that regard, I don't have to feel like the game is being mistreated.

#26
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:05 p.m.

@ScrubStep

Sonya added to MK9.

#27
Vlad_V said on March 26, 2013 at 11:07 p.m.

Nothing on Darkstalkers in regards to characters. Hope this is remedied soon!

#28
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:10 p.m.

As an FYI, not every game will have the ability to add characters to it, with the main criteria being it needs to be played regularly in a tournament setting.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is an example of a game that won't be getting the ability to add characters. Here's a quick list of games that won't have the ability to add characters to them...

Darkstalkers Resurrection
Tekken 6
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins
Marvel vs. Capcom 2

Everything else should be in the clear, though, and we will be working to get those abilities up and running very soon, if they're not fully functioning already.

#29
mp91 said on March 26, 2013 at 11:13 p.m.

nice move

#30
Devdan said on March 26, 2013 at 11:14 p.m.

That seems silly and arbitrary. You're shooting DS in the foot, not even giving it a chance. Also, people still play MvC2...for some reason, and TvC is awesome, and has no sequel to render it obsolete. Seems like a really pointless restriction.

#31
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:17 p.m.

@Devdan

We have to draw some limits here, as entering these characters and images is a good amount of work for our staff. We've been working on this for a long time now to get what you see in front of you.

But I will say, if DSR (or any game) picks up as a major tournament title, we will add in the ability to add characters to it.

#32
Tensa said on March 26, 2013 at 11:20 p.m.

yeah this is pretty sick, also waiting on darkstalkers characters! :)

#33
DarkPhoenixRises said on March 26, 2013 at 11:21 p.m.

Blue Blazes! This is awesome! (I know I'm Phoenix but well it's pretty awesome)

#34
Vlad_V said on March 26, 2013 at 11:24 p.m.

Not even taking the tournament setting into light of this, but what if other people wanted to find others online on the tracker to see if they'd like to join little online tournaments, or just casually spar with someone they know personally? Mayhaps there are people who don't get into the popular choices.

In fact, the argument could be made the same for the Smash Bros. games. Those don't get very high tournament play unless it's at Apex or EVO (for this year only). Not to mention if Darkstalkers 4 wants to see any exposure in the future, it'd be best to implement its current predecessor into the profile editor.

I dunno, it's just something to consider Catalyst. Either way, it's your site and your choice.

#35
HyperViperNZ said on March 26, 2013 at 11:27 p.m.

Pretty nifty feature. All done editing my chars.

#36
General_Awesomo said on March 26, 2013 at 11:31 p.m.

TTT2 is missing Violet.

#37
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:35 p.m.

I'll tell you what, if you want to volunteer to do the mug shots for these games, leave a comment here and I'll send you a Photoshop file you'll need to create the images.

Tracking down official pieces of artwork and creating the mugs so they look good is not an easy task — and I will reject them if they look bad — but since a few of you feel so adamant about having these games in there, this is your opportunity to make it happen.

Say which game you're volunteering to do mugs for here in the comments and we'll be waiting for you to follow through.

The games you can do are:
• Darkstalkers Resurrection
• Tekken 6
• JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD
• Tatsunoko vs. Capcom
• Marvel vs. Capcom Origins
• Marvel vs. Capcom 2

The rest we'll be taking care of on our end.

#38
theguilty87 said on March 26, 2013 at 11:36 p.m.

Awesome, this makes it worth looking into who id want to play with on here now.

#39
vladgd said on March 26, 2013 at 11:37 p.m.

Well vf5fs is missing taka, and ST doesn't have anything, but you guys are working on it so no worries.

Pretty cool feature, made me finally sign up for an eventhubs account.

#40
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:39 p.m.

@General_Awesomo

Violet added to TTT2.

#41
J_Tier said on March 26, 2013 at 11:40 p.m.

@38 I want to try my hand at cropping out images for Tatsunoko. Is there a time limit though?

#42
Oranos said on March 26, 2013 at 11:41 p.m.

Neat stuff.

SSBMelee is missing Sheik as a character. (Zelda is an option, so it's not that big of a deal?)

#43
General_Awesomo said on March 26, 2013 at 11:42 p.m.

@ Catalyst

All right, that's the last of my characters ^_^.

#44
Kairosbland said on March 26, 2013 at 11:43 p.m.

Good Addition but the DLC characters in PSASBR section are MIA.

zUkUu said on March 26, 2013 at 11:45 p.m.

Very neat feature!

Tho, I'm a bit bummed to see now "Random / All characters" option. :p

One thing tho, if I visit the profile from someone, the characters aren't clearly visible for team games. In particular for marvel. The first character overlaps the other two.

#47
J_Tier said on March 26, 2013 at 11:48 p.m.

Gotta go to sleep now, but I'll check my inbox next thing in the morning. I'm pretty adept at using Photoshop, and I can promise all the images for Tatsunoko by the weekend, assuming you're cool with me doing it.

#48
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:49 p.m.

@zUkUu

Actually, if you just leave the slot blank, it'll show up as a ?, which signifies random/all characters.

Also, mouse over the team games and the mugs should expand to show you everything.

#49
Catalyst said on March 26, 2013 at 11:51 p.m.

@jtir123

No time limit, except they won't be added into the site until you finish with them. ;)

I'll send you details before I go to bed tonight, just need to finish patching up the other games first.

#50
Oniros said on March 26, 2013 at 11:52 p.m.

Nice feature! Suddenly, EH seems more appealing than SRK. :P

#51
Vlad_V said on March 26, 2013 at 11:55 p.m.

Okay then. I'll do my hand at Darkstalkers Resurrection. I've already got all the characters from the revamped artwork. Send it my way.

#52
Pachendrix said on March 27, 2013 at 12:11 a.m.

@Vlad_V If you do that for DarkStalkers I'll be forever grateful to you. :D

Anyways, finally this is up, I'll admit it, usually I was just an observer of this site. But I created an account the moment I saw the announcement. Thanks EHubs for this awesome feature!!!

#53
Macombo_John said on March 27, 2013 at 12:13 a.m.

My God, love the idea. It's pretty fun to use.

#54
zUkUu said on March 27, 2013 at 12:13 a.m.

@51
Now we just need a forum overhaul and it might be possible to make it the FGC main site including forum. SRK.com' forum is just atrocious to use since the update... =/

#55
GoddessOf2ch said on March 27, 2013 at 12:19 a.m.

So nice! Gratz guys!

#56

@Vlad_V

OK, instructions sent.

Very nice. Time to get back in the game after three months out. Being a lawyer really affects one's ability to play games.

#62
Catalyst said on March 27, 2013 at 12:52 a.m.

Zeus, Isaac, Kat and Emmett added to PSASBR, and also fixed some of the image issues with that game.

#63
Mx_Paladin said on March 27, 2013 at 1 a.m.

Kat and Emmet are missing from Playstation all stars

#64
FatMus2 said on March 27, 2013 at 1:04 a.m.

Jolly good EventHubs! I foresee this site becoming really incredible soon (not that it wasn't good to begin with ;)). Good stuff.
Do the mugs (I love that word you're using) have to be done on Photoshop or can they be done on GiMP? Not too sure about my schedule just this second but I'll comment later if I can do a game that hasn't been picked already.

#65
Catalyst said on March 27, 2013 at 1:05 a.m.

@PoweredByProtein

We need to figure out a good solution for Skullgirls. Lemme talk with TheUncharted tomorrow and see what we can cook up.

#66
YumaTsukumo said on March 27, 2013 at 1:06 a.m.

Would be nice if you weren't limited to three characters and could just insert them in order.

I'm trying to add my characters but the link under the game title that is shown in the first image is not showing. There is just the small black vertical line to the left of the game title but then no text or link. Is there something I need to do to make it show?

EDIT: link started to show as soon as I posted this :)
