[Sprites] Hexen II Axe

Post by ETTiNGRiNDER »

Here's a rip & rehand that I did of the throwing axe from Hexen II. It's only minimally cleaned up, and the second frame is modified from the Hammer of Retribution and might not match exactly, so it could probably use more touching up if someone's so inclined, but I don't think it came out as badly as I might have expected. The third frame should be duplicated with adjusted offsets for a good swing.

That's pretty cool! Could be great with a little touch-up.

A certain someone I know would be really pleased to see this. Undead Knight throwing axes, anyone? :P

Looking good.

Also, I couldn't avoid quoting this:

Looks nice, but this kind of things should now be made with widescreen monitors in mind as well...

Third frame should have little more massive handle. Otherwise it looks good for minimaly edited rip.

One thing I see is that the last frame, assuming it's the last of the attack frames, looks too large relative to the second attack frame. If you are swinging the axe, i would assume that the last action would make the weapon farthest away, thus looking the smallest. Some simple scaling down would fix it. That or Scale up the second attack frame; or a combination of both.

I also recommend some smudging of the highlighted areas on the back-blade. It looks blotchy, most likely from the low-res skin of the 3D model. Other than that, it should make a fine Hexen weapon. :)

Well, I made it by screenshotting the game. I don't have widescreen.

This, I can do.

I was kind of surprised how few frames it seemed to have. It's possible that there's another frame that was hidden behind the cheesy "swoosh" effect that the thrown axe has (which gets drawn over the weapon for some reason... :? ) I can try the resizing edits though to see if it comes out better.

Animation interpolation (smoothly moving from one animation frame to another, instead of jumping) at its finest, and most annoying.

If that were the case, shouldn't the screenshotting method have avoided that?

Depends how good you are at timing it. I'd try recording it and using VirtualDub to get the individual frames.

Hexen II didn't even have model interpolation, since it uses Quake 1's engine (though there are probably ports that change that).

I noticed this too when I was adding this axe to AEoD (War Axe). I found that firing it at a more upward angle seemed to eliminate that problem for the most part. Also, try it in the Egypt maps since the blue sky makes it easier to separate from the much darker colored axe.
