Update

Spent 6 cels of mostly unique tiles on the determined stride/run animation since the player will see that a lot.

Summary
Time domain: Duration set to 4 frames for transitioning cels; 7 frames for the 2 "turning point" cels.
Position domain: a "dip" of 1px set for two of the cels (worth 4 frames each) when the legs are between contact points with the ground. i experimented with having position animation free-standing from cel durations, but the yield was not enough to justify it imo.
Pixel domain: The differences in movement from cel to cel were made to create an "ease in" from the turning points but end quite abruptly at the next turning point: the largest distance is covered between the last "transition" cel and the upcoming turning point. This hopefully helps reinforce the expression of determination.

 Author: FrankenGraphics [ Sat Jan 20, 2018 6:51 pm ] Post subject: Re: Progress thread: Unrevealed title Thanks! Trying to bring out some more of that. Same use of tiles (actually one less), more dynamic placement. Definitely smoother. A little different pacing (always hard to nail! Better? Worse?)Attachment: 90percentdone.gif [ 6.53 KiB | Viewed 1789 times ] Edit: Curbed the tail and also the ears a bit. This detail is getting close to final, if not already?Attachment: asgoodasdone.gif [ 6.45 KiB | Viewed 1775 times ]

 Author: pubby [ Sun Feb 04, 2018 9:29 am ] Post subject: Re: Progress thread: Inherent Smile Does the "run" button work? I keep dying to stuff and I can't run away!I would be interested in hearing how the raycaster works. It looks different than tokumaru's.

 Author: tokumaru [ Sun Feb 04, 2018 9:38 am ] Post subject: Re: Progress thread: Inherent Smile I don't understand what happened with this game... It has some of the greatest graphics I have ever seen on the NES, the use of color is absolutely fantastic! And then there are the 3D sequences...I don't mind the "Tyrannosaurus Tex style" of textured walls (I wanted to see it done on the NES, actually), but the dimensions of the blocks are really inconsistent... You can't see openings very well until you're really close, it looks like things get distorted as you move around. I ended up using the tiny circular map almost exclusively, since it's so hard to tell what's going on in the 3D.But more surprising than the 3D view itself, is the interface around it. How come this screen looks like a quick MS Paint sketch while the rest of the game has such amazing graphics?
