I'm using Firefox 3.5.6, and they show up just fine.

Opera version 10.10 is still showing everything absolutely perfectly.
I like how the taunt looks but I'm not exactly sure how it would work ingame, When do they taunt you?

Conceit: I see. Well, I'll do another pass and see if I can come up with the look you're expecting.
I agree with him. The new smoke fades into airbrushed clouds instead of the crisp pre-rendered look of the rest of the images. It's way out-of-place, and even if it wasn't for the game, half of the animation is crisp and solid and then the last half is a blur of clouds.

Firefox 2 displays static images instead of animated. Can someone confirm that Firefox 3 shows these?
Seems like these are PNG-anims. Firefox 3 can display them, while programs which do not support png-anim, are only displaying the placeholder-image in the PNG-file.
A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination. Yes we can!

I feel like the explosions were pretty good about halfway through, but that they took a major turn south when you started applying light to them.  They became incredible hard shapes that don't make much sense I feel.

Dust is not a very hard material even when it's quite thick, and it tends to be extremely matte (because it lacks a surface), see if you can't get them to stack so that there's basically 2 zone (smoke in light on top, smoke below that's shadowed) with very rare instances of lighter or darker where it's particularly sculptural.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

lil wasp dude is perfect now...I think among aniPNG and the alpha explosions everyone's neglected to say that :p. I agree with Adrias, the light effects and the alpha dissolution on the explosions took the fun out of them, do you have the 3d versions of the ones I linked to anymore? The new ones seem bubbly as they fade out....and the fire is also meh-er
