You might wanna change the hands to arms, I noticed when you do melee attacks the hand comes off the screen...

See, one example is how oblivion works with first person arm animations, if you used a cheat to view yourself in first person, you see arms hidden in the back of the character's camera.

This is also so in the future, when the game is released, you don't have ninjas that can jump off of steep slopes and near impossible terrains, and making it impossible to get a hit on those jumping ninjas.

Plus this makes jumps more tactical, meaning for multiplayer purposes, you can't jump all over the place just to **** off your opponent.

Add friction use when landing on a slope, so if you are jumping too fast down a side of a hill, depending on how the terrain is, and the angle of the slope, the character can "slip and fall" if they aren't adapted to it.

Because you can't jump down a steep slope, hit the slope with your feet and NOT fall over (you'll basically try to break your fall using your heels, but if your falling faster, it'll be imminent).

GGTL: Who is the 'Old man with the shotgun'?
He is an old dude with a shotgun, stricken with partial blindness and a hatred for "them skateboard-ning, rap-scalling teens", who snapped when his wife of 35 years was eaten and will stop at nothing to ensure revenge is dished out on the undead. Cheesy, I know - but I like it.

WTF an old man is usually around his 60-80 so... WTF!?

This can be made even easier if you can group manipulate the skeleton with preset templates. So then you don't have to manually adjust the joints and get it wrong.

For fighting moves, it can be neat if you make "mini" adjustment to each arms, legs, chest, abs, and head. This is so you can create a fighting posture or a attack animation easily by loading template into a arm and adjusting it.

I think you need to make a very close up comparison, because when hiding in grass and bushes, you need to be able to faintly see right?

In real life, because of the way plants are like, being inside a bush or tall grass allows you to see a bit whats on the other side. Of course it also depends on how thick it is from a certain distance or angle.

The types of saving mode depends on the game. But ya, a lot of game needs to be able to save.

How do we revolutionize save game? Will someone end up making a joke game that's about saving game and continuing?

I got a weird idea for a game:
- Goal is to get to the end of the chapter
- Use save function to create a "hole" and save your progress
- The hole brings you into a alternate world in that position
- Able to "undo" and backtrack through those holes, re-saving progress in a few ordered slots.
- Kind of like portal but instead of making 2 points to make a portal, you just transfer yourself in first person to the other world, and it records your position
- both world can be interactive and will work at the same time (your warping between them to bypass obstacles)
- Can be a puzzle game?

Also, right now, throwing 1 kunai at a time doesn't give it much of a pacing in battle, nor do you think you can throw a kunai at several moving targets? At this point, kunai are like magnums... Shurikens are like SMG... All projectiles unfortunately still feels like guns...

Well the mod is at a point where its plausible but not quite there yet...

For some odd reason I find the throwing of kunai, shurikens, and kunai exploding tags to be a bit too fast... I've played the ultimate ninja series, or Naru-timate hero so the throwing speed is meant to set up like that cause its two dimensional fighter...

Even so... The trail for the projectiles are hard to see from a distance, so I think a bigger trail for projectiles might work...

... But then there would be some people wanting to bash this, saying that it's suppose to be hard to see... Well people, balance is a big issue and its not completed yet...

Shurikens should carry bigger trails than kunais i guess... Since they are spinning in flight they also fly slower...

To me, its unrealistic and even further doesn't make sense, when a thrown kunai hits a wall under 1 second over 200-300 meters?

A Neat and new idea to this coop game.

Dra6o0n Oct 2 2009, 2:09pm replied:

A Colt .47? Or a Magnum?

Need to adjust the weapons so you can have super pistols too, so the handcannon isn't just a upgraded handgun...

Need to follow a bit of RE style on magnums weaponry... They're meant to do insane amount of damage, but very little ammo (close to none) so every shot deals enough damage to greatly cripple a boss too...

Secret weaponry should be placed in the game as a droppable weapon from monsters or checkpoint items... Such weapons has no respawn and limited ammo (ammo boxes doesn't refill them)...

For example, a LAW should be such weapon, they need to be stronger and enough punch to weaken a boss dramatically, but not without a single shot use.

What i mean now, is super weapons that can defeat bosses, but limited and flawed in it's own way... Do you wanna use that rocket launcher on a crowd of monsters to clear the way, or save it for the boss?

Shops is what breaks the scariness though... So maybe a new gamemode for all these idea would be best...

the replayablity of this game isn't that great now... I bought it and got over it already...

An escape gamemode would be neat and especially if it involves backtracking to look for items to unlock the passage etc...

A cool map could be a insanely hard one, where your team are locked down in a underground lab and each doors are shut down, so you have to use a cutter (unweld) each of them to escape!

What made the original resident evil so great was the difficulty and the potential threat the enemies comes at you with, mixed in with limited controls...

But since you can freely aim, the enemy can potentially chase you with no flaw in movements then...

The one thing that can be interesting is one hit kill moves from RE, imported into this game.

They'd have to be set so it'll only work as a chance when your health is low enough.

Hunters will use their super pounce when you see them crouching and being stationary for a few seconds, this mean they can't aim where they are jumping in mid air so you can side step to dodge it.

Dra6o0n Oct 1 2009, 3:27pm says:

you need to add better wall jump contols so it can be used in reverse too, to dive bomb someone from above... It can depend on momentum, as a jump straight up gives positive momentum to climb walls upwards, a falling momentum and wall jump will help you move towards a direction better, and probably help survive a fall in other modes...

Also, it would be neater to have a wall jump cling and charge ability, so you stay in place for a brief moment, then launch yourself in the direction of your sight.

As for camera controls while wall jumping, i think a automated camera that quickly flips your view around when jumping off walls can help if its intensively first person, but if you mean using guns while walling jumping and aiming, then it has to be set to allow sideway wall jumping then...

A interesting idea to the lore is magic, but not the kind where you spam fireballs at each other, but more of a summoning or enchantment kinds...

With my earlier post on Giant Avatars, maybe its possible to have a "Mobile Base" kind of mode, except they are huge and can fight and support their units.

Essentially, these giant Avatars are made out of stone and clay, so they have the toughest resistance to damage, but they do have vulnerable weak spots...

To be able to move, they'd need a physical magical enchantment on specific parts of the giant, so if these enchantment gets destroyed, like by a arrow or bomb or by plain ripping it off, the giant loses the ability to use that specific parts...

Maybe have a variant of giants and call them a class of golems with floating parts to use as a assault weapon...

Of course, giant golems or Avatars would break the team play motion if this were plain TDM... The objective of the game is to destroy your opponent's golem.

Each golem can be run by a AI to navigate around the map, with it's own mind and act as a guardian to allies and a foe to enemies.

Golems can stomp at you to instantly kill you, or if they didn't step on you, the shockwave will knock you down...

To be more on the realistic side, the golem's abilities can also affect it's ally so they have to be careful not to get to close to foes when it attacks... Lol...

They'd have to overhaul the movement system and attempt to make weaponry more powerful with the right uses, maybe prone and other abilities, like climbing ledges?

Of course a stamina system is needed, otherwise you'd be dealing with hopping troops left and right, when the point of the game is commandos vs commandos whether it be on foot or in a vehicle...

It would be interesting if they could come up with a way to mix your typical third person shooter with a advanced movement system, so you could have a commando wait at the top of a wall, a tank passes by, the commando jumps and attempts to hijack it.
