With the particle engine we could also draw every limb, disembodied, covered with blood... and we could have a player splatter all over the screen in case of overkill. :)

Dynamical and varying effects are the kind of eyecatching eyecandy we need to stand out in the future.

No, why? We already planned to mirror horizontal fighting anims. And I'll have the weapon sprites done today. So it will be finished (enough). :)

A little more frames maybe?
He raises his arm, animation jumps to midswing and then takes another jump to the end swordswipe position.
It doesnt look smooth to me.The swipe.

MORE frames?! No way. Remember every extra frame means an extra frame in all four directions for every piece of visible equipment.
I think the number of frames is quite right.

You're probably right.I started to think abot the frames we already have regarding attacks.It's hard to say when you have not played with the animation if it's enough of frames.

I think my problem is that your animation have more frames.You know.A frame for inaction and a frame for action works.You start to put frames inbetween you'll never get enough and it will hurt the eye.

Me making sense?

I think it looks fine, what comes up though when I think of my stopmotion project of cartoons is that the problem is not the few frames but the lack of motion blur of such a fast swing.
You can animate a swordswing/fast car/flying thing with as many FPS as you want... but if there is not some sort of "motion blur" it will look phoney/fake.

Unfortunaly I could not find any cartoon example via Google Image Search and my mobile harddrive is still in Frankfurt, so I doodled it.

In Cartoons they often draw partial fragments of the moving thing, while in stopmotion movies they either use photoshop/psp/gimp or photograph a object in motion (I've seen some special photo/catapult-construction for that, neat...)
-Have a nice day!

Reworking the sword attack animation for it to fit the future combat system. And it just looks cooler. :)

I assume it's clear to everyone this is not the final version.
