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.

Man .. The transitions between your animations .. They are so smooth! I don't even want to consider how long it must've taken to make each of these, but it has certainly been worth it.

Great job.

Thats cause there were no such movements in the anime.

We dont need to stick to only what you see in the show when it comes to movement.

Like Grega said :P We have a long history of just giving creative control to our team and letting them go wild. While this is based on DBZ it's not always sticking that close to the source.

Looks great, but, the trails(in 0:44) look very buggy. So, can they be made better?

I can't even hold up my jaw. O_O

My only hitch is that the power up rocks still look like those from the previous version. I hope they'll get better. Still its not enough to detract from the games awesomeness. :D

Two new systems have been developed that will allow ESF to have smoother animations; vertex weights and animation blends.

Vertex Weights: Allows a vertex to be influenced by one or more bones.

Animation Blends: Expands Half-Life’s cap on the number of animation frames available per animation and provides a system to insert animations in between actions.
