Yes, please.


PSD (saved with PS CS5)

I will try to improve the sphere effect, but dunno if it will be possible in pure 2D.

Is the current pain effect when unarmored alright right now?


If you mean the blood veins effect, not really. The veins are too blurry.

I guess the vignette effect is okay. I think I could get used to it.

Also, did you consider using somewhat more futuristic weapons instead of the classic "realistic" ones? It would make sense, since they all use energy as ammo. Game/movie authors usually don't hesitate to replace "realistic" projectile-based weapons with their more futuristic energy counterparts 1:1...see Star Wars - they got blaster everything - handguns, rifles, shotguns, gattling guns, crossbows (and swords when you think about it :D ). I think the handgun and sniper rifle could use the current sprites, they would only need different sounds and bullet puffs. AR and shotgun would need complete replacement (I guess there would be something suitable on R667).

EDIT: Also: Please, add an arming timer to the grenade launcher grenades, so when you pump the grenade from 1 meter to a wall, you don't die instantly. I keep pressing the secondary fire all the time (guess why).

I meant the red border effect, but about the veins, the tunnel vision is also blurry so when I layered it over the tunnel vision it looked like it would fit.

I have been looking for sprites for awhile now, weapons like the Blaster Rifle, Xanadu rifle from Zero Tolerance, and Susan pistol also from Zero Tolerance are ones I've been looking at for awhile, but I'll ask for permission for them soon. For sounds, I was thinking of using Mass Effect sounds or similar, but I can't find a sound pack anywhere. :|

Definitely adding.

EDIT - New weapon balance chart:
Chainsaw - 2-20 damage per saw, 1000+ RPM.
Pistol - 20 damage per shot, 60 if all shots connect.
Scattergun - 150 damage per shot, 1200 damage with 100 EP (8 shots).
Assault Rifle - 20 damage per shot, 640 damage with 100 EP (25+ shots).
Rifle Grenade - 250 damage on direct hit, 128 splash damage and range, 378 damage with 100 EP (1 shot).
Sniper Rifle - 1000 damage on direct hit, 256 splash damage, 128 splash range, 1500+ damage with 100 EP (1 shot).
Destabilizer - 20 damage per rail, 300 damage per projectile rip, 1000 splash damage and range, 200 tracers dealing 100 damage each, 1 shot and 100 EP, consumes health also.

The way the hexagons are distorting towards the center but not towards the corners doesn't look right at all. I assume you want this to look like a sphere surrounding the player? Think about perspective. You'll see the hexagons look normal towards the center of the screen, but progressively more distorted towards the edge/corner of the screen. Allow me to visually demonstrate:

Image
This is just an ordinary array of hexagons. I generated this using Paint Shop Pro 9's "Tiles" texture effect.

Image
And this came from the Lens Distortion filter, set to "Pincushion" and set to maximum strength. You can see the hexagons remain normal towards the center, but are pulled towards the edges/corners as if they are applied to a round surface - in our case, the inside of an energy sphere.

The Lens effect indeed works much better in this case.

You should be able to extract them from the game files.

See the fourth post.

EDIT:

And here is the transparent PNG, in case you can't open the PSD.

After quick test
- whoah, the AR has quite some recoil now
- why do I get the "shield hit" screen together with the blood screen when I have no shield?
- the doom guy head is a little too big, the HUD eats quite a bit of space from the screen
- I think there should be more contrast between the full and empty part on the energy meter. Other than these two points, the new HUD looks great.

It's a red recolor of your graphic, and doesn't really make sense - I might change it back.
- the doom guy head is a little too big, the HUD eats quite a bit of space from the screen

I'll scale down the head, but not too sure about the rest.
- I think there should be more contrast between the full and empty part on the energy meter.

Done.

Regiguns will be going on a pause for now, currently working on a new project, Riccola names "Resonance." I will still be uploading bug fixes or small updates during this pause.

Just wanted to say that I recently played you mod, and by my god, I love the flow of its gameplay. Everything goes so smooth and well I was honestly quite taken by it. So far I've found no bugs or balancing flaws yet and it feels pretty polished, but I'll see if I can find anything that irks me soon enough. Right now I'm playing through Vela Pax with it and loved every second of it so far.
