Hey there, from what I've seen in the videos it looks like all male characters have this problem, the rest of the body looks good, it's just the arms that have this problem. The female looks nice though.

Here's a simple reference to give you an idea of what they should look like:

Take note that the arms go all the way down the crotch and the hands begin even lower than that.
And dont feel discouraged, proportions are a bitch, it's the thing I've had the most problems with too. But getting it right goes a long way to make your models look better.

This is looking really good. Love the female character's moves. Only thing I find a bit odd is the length of the male character's arms, they seem a bit short.

Anyway, keep up the good work :)

Im not sure what to make of this. A few weeks ago you guys made this huge announcement about the allegations of you guys running with the money and not paying your staff in what's probably one of the biggest "Streisand effect" scenarios I've seen in the gaming biz.

It was weird and I believe it makes indies look bad, but you guys said you would be posting more info about to clear things out, which I think was a good idea and would have helped clear things out.

Then out of nowhere Orion's moddb profile is erased, which was a very strange damage control tactic but whatever, let's roll with it.

Now after a big silence you appear out of nowhere, giving no explanations and posting a silly April's fool joke.
I feel like Im being taken as an idiot here. Am I supposed to pretend all that crap never happened? Im confused here.

Please don't take me wrong, I do have a sense of humor and I have no reasons to believe that the accusations are in fact real, but don't you think we deserve some kind of explanation?

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for all your work on this. I've been playing it with v1.4 and despite the fact that driving physics still kinda sucks (not much you can do about that, of course) Im really enjoying it.
Multiple class races are fun and should have been on the vanilla game, also having more options when it comes to selecting a vehicle for a race makes it much more fun.

Now, if you could provide an option to disable the insane bloom effect you would be my hero :D

In Penumbra Black Plague you could do stuff like throwing stuff at the enenies and they would react, but they were still basically inmortal so the safe bet was to run.

In Amnesia as far as I understand it you are playing as a phychotic charater that loses his mind when he sees disturbing things, so there's your reason to run away.

Anyway, Im a huge Frictional fan, I pre-ordered this the first day it was available and I cant wait for it!

Each character has a name and a class, but the are not interchangeable.
Carlos Santiago is also know as the Hunter, the Seeker is called Rosa and so on. You can refer to them by either their name or their class.

They idea is for everyone to have their own identity instead of being your typical faceless grunt.

I never liked the acutal game but I agree that the concept and tech are so promising.
Im glad to hear vehicle handling can be modded because right now that's the game's biggest problem.

Im not asking for a sim here, but things like being able to steer on mid air with a truck and the "potato bag" suspension system really killed the game for me.
If you could somehow improve that it would be great.

Another interesting thing is that the game engine seesm to support a vehicle damage system, but you have to smash your car very hard to notice it. Would be nice to see if that can be improved.

Anyway, I'll stop rambling now, good luck with the mod!

The problem is that I dont think that consoles are entirely to blame.
Before I was a PC gamer I was a console owner (with my last console being the glorious Dreamcast) and I can assure you that there tons of console games that are far from the dumbed down mess made to appeal the lowest common denominator possible that we see today.

I believe the problem is more spread out. As companies get bigger and budgets increase there's a bigger focus in revenue than in quality.

Let's not forget that all previous Splinter Cell titles were released on the original Xbox and yet Conviction remains to be an incredibly linear third person shooter that casually pretends to be a stealth game.

As corporations grow larger they lose focus in creativity, and simply try to increase profit as much as possible.

People are going to buy these games because they are not created for us, they are created for a new generation that doesn't have anything to compare this to, and that buys into the hype that is so easy to buy nowadays (mostly thanks to video game journalism having almost zero standards aside from a few decent indie ones like RPS).

And sadly this happens on both PC and consoles alike.

So yeah, the industry is ****** :P
