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.

The title is "Maps 2011", what were you expecting?

Everything is awesome.
Only one thing i noticed, isn't it possible to make a better thunder texture? Something I noticed is the last part of the texture ends up in a straight. Wasn't it better if it ended in a triangular form? (just an idea..)
Everything else looks perfect

Thanks for the constructive feedback.

That's is entirely doable. The lightning strikes are all based off the same animated sprite. It shouldn't be too difficult to add a few varieties of lightning to the FX system.

You're welcome.
That would be a good solution. But isn't it easier if you edit the only sprite you're using? Since its only one, changing that one wouldn't be a problem..
Notice between 1:57 and 2:04, when the animation is close that straight is easily noticeable and the quality is lower comparing to the surrounding map textures. If you could work on those 2 little things, perfection will be achieved.
I'm glad if i helped.

One dev I talked to said they really wanted to...

But they also said only about 50% of the stuff is actually implemented. It's buggy, crashes often, and has performance issues to make a 8800 GT seem like a GeForce 2.

grega , low fps on a 9800gt ? :P man then u guys need allot of optimization , also i think the developers should maintain the graphics settings for ever pic or vid , i saw allot of variations , see the namek and the cell games then compare it with the desert and end namek looks like a huge difference , but in some photos n vids they also look amazing i think the settings need to be the same in every presentation

Not a lot of optimization. I need to stop running the game on full settings with forced 16X AA so that people dont whine if i happen to take a screen shot for a POTW.My card can not handle more than 512 MB VRAM and with those settings id probably need 1GB to run it with out any FPS drops due to my GPU borrowing my system RAM.

That aside. Did you really just compare picture quality of a 4:3 CRT monitor screenshot to one made in wide screen in a resolution my monitor doesnt even support?
