    also, ignore those FPS, i was actualy getting around 60 or something insane, i just didnt have it displaying properly in real time, one second it would say 3 fps, then 30, then 20 then 2 then 9 then 1 etc, it was insaaane.

    Whew, the fps did have me a bit worried(15 nuuuuuuuuuu[nu being the new no, as you all know]!!). But now all is once again happy in Candy Lan....*cough* I mean Eon. And I must say, that is an AWESOME sword....glaive.....thing....anyway its awesome to the maxtreme, and *bada ba ba ba* Im lovin' it! That little pansy bladed spear(Lookout Shepherd! Its time for your anual dental check up and teeth cleaning!) the guy leaping from the deer had in Sunfields left me a little worried, but this sword totally makes up for that.

    Now, what I was curious about, is there any animations in the current model viewers? Or is it all just an evil plot to get us to desperatly mash our keyboards in a futile attempt to get them to do something? Im happy either way(actually Im ecstatic one way and happy the other) as they are just so mind-numbingly beautiful(I've always had a soft spot for Spike-y-ness[tm] and these guys have it spades). Everything I have seen is totally awesome in the extreme, so keep on trukkin...or boatin.....or plane-in....or whatever your transportation method of choice is-in!

    P.S. Apologies for the rediculous over use of Parenthesis, but the lil buggers are just sooo cute!

    The camera man's a good guy. Been with us a long time. Dated my sister for a while (which I don't even have one of). He's was there for me when the ground came up and smothered me, or when I got that house painter's color chart instead of a plane ticket, and he was TOTALLY there for himself when we were smuggling panda steaks out of Bangkok. It was awesome.

    As for the grass, I mowed it yesterday. The pollen count index was really high though and it kept me up all night with allergies. Just out of the frame of the shot is a sprinkler and two riflemen reclining in deckchairs with some lemonade. The beach was totally full, so they decided to chill in the yard.

    And don't blame us for the silly rifleman poses. The aforementioned cameraman was snapping some pics, and when the camera comes out the rifleman tends to act like a 14 year old japanese tourist. In his mind he's thinking "WATASHI WA JOSHIKOUSEI! SUTEKI ^_^ !". He's nuts, but he's the best we've got... for now.

    Nice animations, some feeling of weight to the sword. The head movement is good too. Are you willing to take some critique?

    The fingers on the sword unwrap wierdly and too quickly. You generated the illusion of weight with the hip movement, delayed arm swing and dropped shoulder, but the right hands finger unroll detracts from it.

    If you want to run that animation slower for game balancing purposes or general coolness factor he could right hand release late swing so the arc was greater and dissipated single handed.

    The above said, nice animation, nice model. Pretty stunning mod really. Have fun with the "utility belt" items clipping though, you are going to LOVE the nitty gritty finishing that off :p. All the best - Tink

    It's pretty cool that we can get critiques like this while in development. Not many game studios get that kind of outside examination until its too late and the game is on the shelf. That's the beauty of this kind of development.

    As for the animation, the finger movement was based on the kenjutsu sword handling style in which the sword is gripped by the lower fingers only, leaving the middle and index fingers loose. It's still valid criticism, as this isn't kenjutsu, but there's your excuse anyway.

    Ahh I see. A decision to make the humans precise and in control? Fair enough, if you wanted that style but still wanted the sword to appear heavy, the right hand could slide up the shaft as it was swung (still only keeping hold with the base of the hand), that way you could keep the style and give the appearance of barely in control. Your call either way :), by this point its just nitpicking :D, as you've obviously thought the swing and its characteristics through. Best of luck - Tink

    Omigosh Hyper is almost as hyper as me! IMPOSIBIBLE!!!!!!111!!!oneoneoneone!!! Actually the question was, in those little downloadable model viewer thingamajiggers(best...word...ever....kekekekeke) is there a way to play through a list of animations(Eg: The Shepherd giving everyone the finger with his very large....finger....claw....thingy...). I doubt there is but its WORTH A SHOT(of caffeine!! which I have already had way to much of!). On a side note! DINO CHAW is the best phrase ever invented by a hyper man-artist-dinosaur thing, and should be worshiped in a small Shinto shrine in northen Uganda like it deserves!!!!

    I am going to have to go with Switch on this one.

    *EDIT* Wow, after seeing that animation... That was probably one of the most life like animations I have ever seen that focused on the upper torso, and ironically it looks so life like is because of the legs :D Seriously, whoever animated that fine piece of ass kicking, kudos.
