BTW if some of frames are the same (they may have different X/Y offset, but must be same image) you don't have to copy them to sprite sheet. You can use XML file to describe specific animations and X/Y offsets. I think Crush is an expert in this case. Ask him if you need help.

Thank you for the tip. In theory I know that its possible, but practically I don't know how exactly to do it (X/Y values have something to do with mathematics and im really bad at this :? ). But in this case I think it's more clear the way I did the animation sprite because almost every single frame is different (that has something to do with my chaotic methods of operating I guess :wink:). I keep that in mind for my next project.

Oh... I almost forgot :)

Marvellous work. It's good to know that someone make a popper use from our animated sprites support. Anyway smaller spriteset could be even better because of some new additional attack frames in future. However, using this spriteset we could done it as well. Once again GOOD JOB!

Now we need extend our XML files with SOUND EMITER parameter. Bells during walking could be nice addition ;)

Not if sound emitter will have radius parameter. If radius will be for example 60px in most situation other players couldn't hear that. Also sound volume should decrees with distance. In this case it could be linear function. 0px - volume 100%, 60px - volume 0%.

I was more thinking about when you are wearing it. You would hear the sound at 100% volume everytime you move.

Actually you don't have to wear it. If you wear something with bells you almost always hear the bells.

We already discussed how the sound engine could be modified to have sound sources of varying volume depending on their position. We came to the conclusion that we would have to reimplement the whole sound system based on OpenAL instead of SDL to do so.

Resuming all we need to release this sprite is the item icon. I did quality check, and IMO spriteset passed. I know that we could simplify this spriteset, but it isn't big deal to leave it as is. What do you think Crush?

Simplifying the spriteset after all the phases have already been made would be a waste of time and effort.
