I'm really liking the new update! The guns feel really great and refreshing, excellent work!

I do have a minor nitpick, a lot of the sprites have semi-transparent pixels at the edges that are quite noticeable in-game. It's not the end of the world or anything, but I think they'd look better without them!

Again, amazing work!! Great stuff!

I am still using a few sprites that I edited in the early days of learning how to do all this. I do plan to sit down one weekend and clean everything up.

As far as the MP40 altfire goes, I've conjured up an idea, but I'm still working out a few kinks.

Let me know if this looks fun or if I should go back to the drawing board.

A really neat dual-wield replacement! Keep it.

Removing semi transparent pixels from sprites is a pain in the neck. The best method I have found is to index the colours of a sprite - this way you can assign a palette to the sprites however you will only have 256 colours available.

Always an option. My method is to add a white layer underneath the sprite in a paint program, merge the layers to force out any transparency, and clean up the edges manually. It's very tedious but ensures that each sprite looks the best it can.

Just a heads up I too was curious about the transparency problem and I found there was a plug-in for paint.net made by this dude BoltBait in a pack for like version 4.06 on the paint.net forums.

Came with Alpha adjuster that made getting those things completely opaque really easy, no Manual layering required, just slid the slider up and bam. Figured you'd be interested.

The gun details are fine overall, but can you replace the plasma rifle gun?
The details of the original plasma rifle are so well made that I wish I could replace it.
Then it will be a great work.
I hope the Plasma secondary attack was made in the form of a rail gun.
I am eagerly awaiting the revision.
Thank you for making it.

Maybe add the option to have the original Combat Shotgun (double barreled) sprite and have Nazis drop MP40s?

You can absolutely use this mod for your project! I do recall asking people to get permission from me first and crediting properly, but I still find certain assets popping up in projects without permission and credits, so at this point I say it's fair game either way.

I'm also working on a new plasma rifle for this project. I'll link a photo/video in the next few hours, but I may need help with the reload sprites from some more talented sprite artists if anyone is interested in taking a crack at it.
