In my opinion, the second cycle looks better, but I guess you should keep the muzzle flash static.

Even with the choppy animation, the first one looks better if only because it appears more realistic. Is there no way to combine both animations?

Weapons need more knockback. Oh and I am fine with choppy animations, if only they are animated enough and not heavy with offsets.

I've been intending to do it myself on release and send the stuff back to you. :wink:

Is a tough call.

@Snarboo: Is not directly possible to do both, mostly because the flash is bound to move with the weapon when using offset(). I could manually do them all through TEXTURES and keep the muzzle the same, but to be honest, that's something Im not willing to do, as I dont really have the patience to work with TEXTURES.

I have been working with the offsets for the headhunter, and I got some weird animation that looks smooth indeed, though Im not entirely conviced of the result. I'll keep on working on this and see how it turns out. However, the poll contradicts the actual feedback i've got in here and in the video itself :?

TEXTURES isn't that difficult to work with if you use SLADE3's visual TEXTURES editor, but it can be frustrating at times if you're not familiar with how it works.

Didnt know SLADE had such a thing. But indeed, I consider it too much work for too little gain. One thing I've been noticing, the actual flash lasts only 5 tics (one tic per frame), so the movement is not that bad. I might indeed go with the 2nd option of the poll, and keep doing it through offsets.

That is unless anyone is willing to create some smooth animations through textures, in which case Im all for it :mrgreen:

And again, I have another comparison.

First part has no offsets. Second has offsets animation.

Be the judge.

The second part looks much better. I can't even tell that the muzzle flash is moving, to be honest.

Yeah, the second part looks much better. The second part for the screamer also looks better IMO.
