The sword doesn't fit the frame? I hope it is not because it's overlapped by the ground.

Ultim, why are you using the old playerset? And I don't think inventory icons are meant to be used directly in equipment graphics.

Anyway, if it isn't the overlapping ground weapons should have more space. Spears sure need it.

the new animation system should fix this (i hope)
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

...anyway, I suggest an extension of ten pixels more on each side:
Pink is current size, yellow is extended size.

Well if you're using the old playerset and the stab animation for a sword attack, then use whatever you want, since it won't be included in a official release.

I didn't mean to be rude, but reading it twice made me think so.

Why do i explicitly post about the weapon sprite's inadequate size and get met with comments of the antiquity of the graphics in the snapshot instead? Yes, that's the old player. For that matter, in the forward strike animation's third frame the sword won't look like that anyway. I can take that snapshot over again with the most up to date graphics if all of you would like, but it will just say the same thing... the box is too small.

And as Crush said the size of the box won't be much of a trouble once we get the new animation system to work, which will take some time since my computer is K.O.

The point was your work would be useless if you were going to make something that fits the old playerset.
