ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

Cool hud but imo the older one gave a more of a source feel.
Edit: not source meant half-life or more original feel.

Now it actually looks like a commercial game.

Not that it didn't before, but the standardized hud helps.

I have mixed feelings for this one though.

Models looks amazing (as always).
Map looks much better than previous posts/versions.
The HUD is... different... Not neccessarily better or worse, just different. I'm not actually sure which one I would perfer more. Perhaps there could be an option to switch between them? Or a download/add-on to overwrite them with each other.

The hud's nice, but I also would love to have the ability to switch to the old one. Simply because I prefer the style of it, and it kept all the data at one place, plus it's placed in a spot that I'm used to look at.

Still if you guys go by this version, it ain't bad or anything, just my opinion.

Loving the picture too btw, the maps and models are just too damn sexy. Keep it up.

The switching of the HUD has been in since the first open Beta. ATM we have 4 HUDs in the inteam.

1.) Open Beta HUD
2.) First ESF Final HUD that you saw in the early pics
3.) The HUD you see in the current pic
4.) The compact HUD that Kynetik is working on that you have not yet seen ^^

You are free to choose the HUDs provided with ESF at any time you want, or you can just add as many custom HUDs as you wish. The HUD system is fully customizable.

vegetaCab Sep 22 2010 replied:

I love the idea that is completely customizable, very well thought out, well everyone has their favorite.
This HUD is similar to the classic games i thing..
anyway I prefer the previous HUD =) and I'm curious why they are working now
I also love the water reflection of this map

Nice, hud. oh and i know this may not be the ESF job to do but if you think about it in your head imagine how it will look. if they used the same graphical stuff on ESF (new one, not the old one) onto Bleach(anime show). That would be mind blowing, having bleach converted the same graphics as this, with the ability to fight anywhere on the map.

Grega Sep 24 2010 replied:

No its the same map. Just a different area. As for the water shader its similar. The new one has added transparency, so you can see below the surface a bit.

Thats probably whats throwing you off.
