See post on previous page.
Here is a full, game-ready sprite sheet of this soldier:

[img:192:256]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jetryl/NPCs/solider_npc01_walk.png[/img]

RangerM should take note that this is different in layout than what I had earlier - the demo spritesheets from the website were compiled before the engine had support for spritesheets, and are laid out differently. The real spritesheets that the game currently uses can be seen here:
http://allacrost.svn.sourceforge.net/vi ... rites/map/

Note that they're interspersed with all the old single-frame images, which haven't been removed yet; the sprite-sheets are named "..._walk.png".



I'd like to use this file as a practice file for committing to svn; so ... leave it to me. :hack: (I'm curious to see if setting up a repository of allacrost's SVN is easier than wesnoth's svn+ssh).

(one side-job I'm also going to be doing is making game-ready sheets of a number of sprites that S-K made and animated, but which apparently haven't ever been implemented, and exist only as demo .gifs.)

Ok. Title the file "solider_npc01_walk.png" if you will. That's the name convention I thought would work best for NPC sprites. Instead of trying to give them all different name (e.g. "rags_woman"), I think its better to just describe the general characteristics (child, man, woman, soldier, etc.) + npc + ##.

Are you sure, because it seems to only have the top row done... (I suspect that you linked to the old one by accident).



Anyway, could you say which ones of the ones you showed me earlier are already animated? I don't want to waste time working on sprites which are already animated but just aren't availiable on teh interweb yet.

I replaced the same file, if you press the "refresh/reload" button a time or two, it should reload and show the new image.

None. These are other ones in addition to those I already showed you - so, your existing "task" still stands, intact.

Ah, ok.

ok, I'll get started on them soon (after I find the time to study the latest versions of the soldier)

Oh wow. I see that the sideways profile has been tweaked. It doesn't look awkward anymore. Excellent work J.

Excellent work Ranger M, too - he did the bulk of things. :approve:


Anyways, here are the sprites that I had asked RangerM in a PM to help animate. Nothing new, I just wanted to make these public knowledge. These are still remaining to be done, although I have made a little progress on the girl in the purple clothes (as seen on the previous page).

In addition to the above, S-K also actually animated a few (1-4?) others, or mostly-animated them; I'm fixing/finishing these up, and posting them here; here's one (these demo images are the old ones from S-K):

[img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC001-Left.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC001-Front.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC001-Back.gif[/img]

And the new, sprite-sheet itself:
[img:192:256]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jetryl/NPCs/man_npc01_walk.png[/img]


There's a bit of ... waddle to the way he walks, but for certain characters, having that kind of diversity-of-appearance is good. That was how our original design sheet for male sprites was shaped.

Yes! Nice job fellas. Sorry I omitted you Ranger M. Those are very nice sprites indeed! :approve:

In further delving, there are several more non-animated sprites that S-K made, which I'd like to add as candidates for animation - though a few of these could probably use some tweaks to their appearance, first (some of these, though, like that knight on the far right, are amazing):
[img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC003_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC004_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/darkshaman01_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/nymph_01_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/FNPC001_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/FNPC002_d_mid.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jetryl/NPCs/demosAndSingleFrames/old_lady1x.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jetryl/NPCs/demosAndSingleFrames/knight1x.png[/img]



There are also some partly animated ones, which I can patch together in animation sheets. I'll take care of these myself:
[img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC002-Front.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC002-Right.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/MNPC002-Back.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/boy1_d.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/boy1_r.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/dog1_d.gif[/img]


There are also a few other NPCs, not originally authored by S-K lying around. These could use some tweaks, or major alterations, and aren't on the immediate list for animation:
[img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jonatron/harrvah_knight_stance.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/safir-kreuz/npc/flutist.png[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/sylon/mapsprites/redknight/redknightback.gif[/img] [img:32:64]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/sylon/mapsprites/redknight/redknightfront.gif[/img] [img:34:66]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/sylon/mapsprites/redknight/redknightleft.gif[/img]

I am; a simple commit like this is a good test-exercise to get my svn running.

YES!!!

I have admired those sprites for quite some time. I really look forward to seeing them brought to life. That knight on the far right is awesome. Perhaps that can be the generic soldier for the Empire's army?

:heh: This empire that keeps getting brought up... Actually, because of how incredibly similar his costume design and color scheme is to that of claudius, I was kinda thinking of having him as a harvahn master knight; possibly as _the_ captain from the prologue. I was also thinking of working some motifs from him into the basic structure of the red knight, and using that to make a heavier harrvah soldier. We need around 5-6 harrvah soldier NPCs, since they are such a prominent part of the prologue.



But first! Another sprite sheet compiled, with minor tweaks - this, and the fellow with the black hair above, have been committed (as has the soldier ranger M made).

[img:192:256]http://www.allacrost.org/staff/user/jetryl/NPCs/man_npc02_walk.png[/img]


(For the record, I do like the idea of having an empire; we really need to expand on its general idea, and get some brainstorming going for it. I wouldn't chalk random things like that up for it, now, because its module is a ways down the road; at least two gameplay modules off).

Aww, you always send me the best gifts :approve: , I'll probably just work from left to right so the squire guy on the far left will be done first (he is a squire, right?)

Etc. Not sure if her south walk is too much like a skip; I'll see when I actually see this in-game (I haven't tried to compile, yet).

I'll do the rest of this single sprite (since I'd already started earlier, and syncing work would be difficult).

All the images S-K already drew for the little boy - I'll add the north walk tomorrow.
