I just finished making something like that, and I sent it off to Kegan. The only difference with mine is that the red glows too.

So I'm retooling the rocket thrust into a rushing tackle, it won't change how it works, just the visuals, but due to the limited amount of sprites I have to work with, the tackle kinda...

Looks more like the mother of all bitchslaps.

I'm keeping it.

bitchslap? more like BROSLAP. otherwise, it does needs more powerful animation, though.

it's a damn shame Baratus never threw elbows or actually DID have a shoulder tackle. I'll see what I can do later.

Sadly no. I got the punch planned for another subweapon. and using the same sprite for two different subweapons would just be odd.

Here, lemme show off something else for the time being: The secondary spell you get along with the shield subweapon, the Chakram

Yeah I need to look into how to give projectiles a rad as hell afterimage effect. I know you can use spawnitemex, I just need to read up on the proper formula.

and if anything, it's a cherry lifesaver candy.

Sparks I can do. and while I'm waiting on a friend to make me Arthur's Lance and Dagger, I'm working on the sub-spell you get with with Lance: Red Lightning.

My current problem is trying to take the 2D lighting sprites from Super GnG and have them make sense within a 3D environment.

if the player can throw the whole lance, RIPPER flag is it's best friend. also A_Explode is for dagger too.

Actually the lance and dagger are going to be loyal to how they worked in Super GnG, so the lance will essentially be a rocket with no explosion, and the dagger will be a fast firing projectile you can use to peg enemies very rapidly. I may give the dagger a forcepain flag so they always cause monsters to flinch. To counterbalance that, both the lance and dagger will consume sword rage, as all subweapons will, but because the dagger uses a third of the rage meter, you can't just hold altfire and expect to constantly throw daggers. A smart player will be able to use the dagger to approach monsters or use it defensively to make archviles flinch while backpedaling to cover.
