Character Animations......

I know it's semi-early in development but, come on, the animations in this game look HORRID. Everything else looks great, but those animations make it look so damn goofy and amateur, I really hope they fix it!

    Ok.....no I can't understand you...what you said just sounds a bit arrogant and foolish...I am sorry but you have to read more about the game before you make such a waste of a thread!

    which movies did you watch? If you watched the features movie, it was taken from an early alpha version with crappy animations. The last trailer (trailer 2, the one that tells a bit about the background story) looks a lot better imo.

    In the trailer 2, the animation is bad but this is a alpha vidéo. In the trailer 3, animation is very better!!

     And there are the time for améliorations ^^

    2 months? Have they even started Beta yet?

    I don't think the OP is being arrogant just because he doesn't like the animations. I think he's expressing his opinion and looking for someone to discuss it with him or perhaps show better footage to sway his opinion.

    so...

    Its been in beta for half a year or so already. The second phase of beta is starting soon, where all gameplay elements will be tested.

    Still, I think it'll be at least 4 more months or so before the game comes out.

    Check the coming soon section of the official site. It says that the game is released in october.

    Well, your either asing your oppinion off of in-game movie, in which case you should point out which one so we have at least a "clue" as to what the heck your talking about.

    OR, your basing your oppinion as a beta member in which case your violating the NDA and hopefully your get yourself booted.

    OR, your just trash talking our your ass.

    Either way, if you knew better, you'd know that as of this point, Spellborn has some of the most amazing animation going right now.

    Well from the movies the animations sure look weird. Stick-figures come to my mind. Although it could be that's still all placeholder-stuff, and not developed yet.

    pretty true :P But there isn't even been an open beta... And the guys in the closed beta say that it looks 10 times better in-game.

    The animations I saw in the Trailer unnerved me as well. They were probably placeholder animations or something though.

    He must be talking about the more cartoonie animations, come on people, why would he trash talk for the hell of it, when evidently the grahpics are very good?

    Obviously he means something by it.  I know some people are not used to the animations (and he did say animations, not graphics), because the toons are also a bit awkward looking in terms of realisim.  In some animation to choose from, the characters can seem fairly deformed or off balenced.

    I personally like it, becaise its more an art style in animation rather a strict graphic.  One of the reasons I like this game is due to the fact that houses and land and objects and characters and monsters have their own unique style compared to other games, visually.

    Sure you can pick a toon with skinny legs and arms and waist, with a big head... or a fat guy with really small head, lol, but thats just part of the style, and it really does give variety in custimization and personality.  You have to look at this game as if it came out of a fairy tale story almost.

    I think this was what the OP was refering too, the animation style he is not a fan of.  The graphics in this game are very good, as well the engine.

    Which animations? (Link to movie if you have)
    There is one movie with an arena & it looks that the characters slide forward instead of running sometimes. Other than that it looks like any FPS-game animation out there to me.
  • FWH-MolotokFWH-Molotok Member Posts: 6

    I kind of agree... only in so far as to say that the animations appear to be incomplete, or unpolished if you will. I certainly hope they will have the things I noticed in the videos fixed prior to or very shortly after release, because they are annoying. The foot slide when a character is walking or running is probably the most annoying to me. It doesn't have to be perfect by any means, but the foot should stay pretty close to where it hits the ground, rather than sliding backwards as the character walks. It looks like the walking/running animation is moving too fast for how fast the character is actually moving forward.

    It's too bad stupidity isn't painful.

    Character models look great to me. They are unique compared to others I have seen, they have a kinda dark side to them, it's hard to describe but they seem more mature and adult oriented.

    I agree, character models look great, but the animations are not so great yet. Models is a different subject than animations.

    After watching the animation for the "arena monster" I have no idea what your talking about. Looks pretty good to me.

     Regarding animations, they already said that those are not set in stone, and they are thinking of changing it.
