I'll just point out that SgtMarkIV actually wasn't the one who made those. I did.
Not to sound selfish or anything; I just don't like my work misattributed.

That was total negligence on my part, I apologize.

Hey! So despite the fact that this thread has long been in stasis and its owner no longer posts here, I've been working hard trying to keep it going because I really believe in this project. I've taken the last version from the OP and added a ton of my own stuff to it. I don't know if that's even ok, but hopefully it won't piss anyone off. Download here! Hopefully I've given proper credit to all concerned.

My additions include:
Spoiler:


I also smoothified the archvile's attack animation, but getting the tic rate is proving to be a nightmare so that's been left out for now. Anyone who might do a better job is welcome to have the sprites.

Looks good to me, a couple of issues

-Is it just me, or the Imp actually moves/attacks/everything about him is faster than vanilla?
-There seems to be an issue with the Imp's attack animation seen from his back, a frame of his frontal attack animation appears in the middle of the sequence
-It appears to be that there's some conflicts with the keycards' DECO in both ZDoom and GZDoom (2.7.1 stable and 1.9pre-327-gb91d5d5 respectively) Here is a portion of the logfile

Spoiler:


Also, just a personal thought, if this is a project focused on smoother animations, then there's no need for Perks' Sounds to be included in the pack.

Ah, that keycard thing was a sloppy mistake. I'm still feeling my way around coding, but it should be fixed now. Throwing PKsounds in there was just a tweak I made for myself and then forgot about, that's been rectified as well. As far as the imp stuff goes, I'm just using the original decorate from Sarge's version, but I hadn't noticed anything weird myself.

@gifty: Is there any chance these would work with Brutal Doom SE?

Also any chance of a youtube video with these animations?

That would take a hella large amount of work, but I can see Ketchup working well with this.

Pretty sure the extensive sprite work in BD would clash with this mod, unfortunately. As far as videos go, there's a really cool one in the OP; if you want to see my edits specifically, I'll maybe get to work on a video for that, depending on some stuff explained below

I'm trying to get in contact with Sarge to see how he feels about this project being continued. It didn't seem to me like he intended to come back to it, but I want to be sure that I've got his blessing before proceeding too much further. If he's done with the project, then I guess I'd make my own thread and keep making additions from there. If he's still attached, then I'll step back and let him do what he will. I just really want to see this project continued without overstepping my bounds.

EDIT: the keycard conflict seems like it's still an issue. I'm really better at spriting than coding, which is to say I can't code at all. I guess it would be prudent to ask for a life raft at this point. :P

Here, I slapped this together.



You can probably see that a couple of animations still need some tic-tweaks; I'm hoping to iterate on some of this stuff, even the ones Sarge did.

What song is this?

"Zombie Compromise" by Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet, who you might know for doing the theme song to Kids in the Hall! I don't know what it is about surf music, but it fits in almost any conceivable context.

The idle animation for the shotgunguy looked pretty cool, and there appeared to be some other cool things there as well. Perhaps a new thread should be started if there is to be a new attempt at this project.
