Anyway, someone a LONG time ago on Pixelation, for a "make a magic spell" pixel challenge (using my little laughing FFTactics looking avatar guy) did some animations using a 3d program to make cool effects that rendered out to perfect pixel art so you couldn't even tell it was done in 3d. They were really awesome, I think he did two effects...if ANYONE out there stil has those and could post them, that'd be awesome, I lost them a long time ago.
You're talking about Z Gravity. I used to have some of those effects stored, but that was like 5 formats ago. I lost contact with him years ago...
Maybe miascugh still has his contact info?
Yes, I remember those effects by Z_Gravity too. Mhh, I've got ancient AIM contact info of him, but he wasn't on there for.. years? Anyway, I don't think I've ever actually talked to him, heh.
Is it possible though that I spotted his name in the game credits anyway? Then again it would have been strange that the 3dsmax way of doing effects never had come up during the developement. Am I mixing up names?
Anyway, great stuff in here. When I saw the run-cycle for the orc with the battledrums I kinda wished that this was for an RTS game. I don't really know why, I guess I was reminded of WarCraft II - some very fond memories - just that this also has this awesome aggressiveness to it in this power-run that suits the hot-bloodedness of an orc so well... something that WC kinda lacked imo.
