Experimenting with new animation system

First, I’m kind of late but Merry Christmas to ya all

Second, there been lots of bug fixing , and planning. I’ve tried implementing a new animation system which would grant me even more control over my animations, but sadly after a huge time of work I failed doing it and noticed that it would be better if I left my animation system as it is. Although I might reconsider later and try to implement it again =)

For now , I successfully implemented sword attacks and made them work on both clients( it was kind of a dilemma, didn’t exactly know how I would make it work )

Here have some gif animation !

RageEffect.com and RageFX.com

Can’t believe I forgot to redirect those two domains to this blog, well now at least if any one visits one of the domains they’ll get redirected to my blog instead of that “parked domain” page =)

What I've been doing these past days

Well except being sick, I watched the beatifull snow fall outside my home as the heating warmed my body, helping me get better.

I’ve read lots of useful articles and saw many interesting ideas I could implement into my game.
There was one thing really annoying me, giving me headaches, blending two animations together it was
after lot’s of tries, I finally succeeded making it ( partially ) work.

Yay! look at the guy =D

Arrrgg, I never thought that it'd take so much time.

Had to rewrite my whole animation system to improve performance and just so I could make this awkward animation.

Wanna try my Animation Editor out? No problemo !

Just a dev version of my animation Editor,

Here’s the download link
[dead]

Requirements

  • XNA 3.1
  • .NET framework 3.5 or something, anyway you probably already have that

Some unclear stuff :

  • Clicking on Animation line on the top sends you to Animation Proprieties
  • Right click hold on a bone = rotate bone, it’ll rotate it towards the mouse position
  • Those weird things on the top under the animation name = frames, clicking them shows more options
  • Clicking a bone gets you more options, for framed sprites you can change the frame
  • Mouse scroll = Zoom

Any kind of advice or improvements appreciated =)

Also as for spelling mistakes, I’ll fix them later
