I agree :D that was just for fun. Indeed I thought of breath. Eyes maybe but that will be harder.

Freakin awesome!!! You even optimized the frame sizes so there was no wasted empty space in the sprite sheet! One minor thing though, I think there was some horizontal movement on the original (swaying back and forth a bit). Do you think it looks better without xOffset or when the skull is weaving around like a drunken cab driver in traffic?

I can't wait to see the optimized skull in game, with its attack and shadow layered on.

Now it looks great lien :)
What about fire, ice and earth damage? Only poison skulls gives damage...
As the poison reduces the health fire should affect strength, ice on agility and earth on dexterity. If it's possible... it's just an idea :wink:

From what I heard adding new status effects is doable, but it requires messing with the server code (I hope no client code needs updating). I would also like to get a few more added in. I don't think anyone is willing to take on the project though...

Moving the sprite about on the screen (in any fashion) should be done via animation, as in the XML sprite definition file. You need new frames only and explicitly only for new sprite shapes in your puppet show.
This message used to be meaningful.

I thought it was clear that I meant adding horizontal movement in xml. The current xml file only has y offets, and I was wondering if x offsets are needed.
