I still think we need more attack graphics. My character: "Yes i am an experienced swordsman who can slaughter without effort, but i only know how to stab. I'm serious. And of course when i'm fighting 10 enemies or so nobody notices that every freaking ime i'm going for their gut/chest area. after fighting over 1000 enemies, nobody realises that i can only stab. of course not. Now if you'll excuse me, i've gotta go practice my stab for 6 hours then read up on scrolls that allow me to make a ption that will make me invulnerable and then make me able to summon acid out of thin air and direct t, which is much easier to create than a upwards or downwards sword attack. Goodbye."

And Drakefyre, i support your love for mac. GO MAC! Don't make me go back to PC. the things i saw..... the things i had to do...... i felt....violated...... please don't make me go back. i still have nightmares... *Shudder* :D

Thanks, I know how it is. But please edit your signature to stop it from stretching the browser. Just put a space somewhere in that long hyphenated word. Or I'll do it for you, and you wouldn't like that ;)

Untrue! One frame, but two different graphics.

—Alorael, who sees no need for pretty animations in Avernum games. He was perfectly happy just getting highlights in earlier Exiles. It's not a stab, it's an indication that you are, in fact, performing an attack.

It was a shocking and marked improvement over the Exile and Exile II graphics that didn't attack at all. Exile III was still my first love. *sigh*

Speak for yourself. And if you really do crave these "better grphics," then go play Gears of War or something.

I agree that graphics aren't everything, but they are something. I don't think graphics will ever be a major selling point for Spiderweb (unless there will be games developed on a licensed engine, which would be a diffent story), but that doesn't mean that Jeff should strive for low-end graphics.

(Though I do agree that extended attack animations don't have a place in Spiderweb's turn-based, tactical-minded combat.)

i think aother attack motion would be better. it became somewhat better with the throwing motions but i still crave another attack motion. and esphesues, no offence, but you sound like an old guy with these remarks:

You Geneforge/A4 vets are spoiled. Back in the day of the Trilogy, back when it was a proper trilogy, we had one attack frame and we liked it.

That was the intent ... he's being playful.

Still, I actually do prefer the old graphics and interface - the new system just seems bloated and much too slow. But to each his own.

that is true, but i'm sure jeff will give us anothr good game. i mean, i would prefer a extra attack motion, but that is'nt exactly the selling point for the games.

I would play Exile/Avernum if it was text based (I play a fair amount of text based games). Graphics mean nothing to a game. It's gameplay and story that I care about.

Ha. Back in my day, we didn't even have attack animations and we walked through solid cavewood doors.

:Edit: Hmmm. I forgot there was a second page. Oh well.

Exile games didn't have the animations.

Although back when I started playing we had text characters for graphics. You swung at a "D" by moving onto that square to attack the dragon.

You had D's?! We had to push the beads around on the abacus. But the gameplay was awesome.

At least you got an abacus. All we had was a stick to draw in the dirt.
