New attack frames help?

Post by Free » May 3rd, 2006, 9:21 pm

First of all, this is for a troll shaman which might only exist in one campaign—I'm not quite sure.

After I played the scenario in Under The Buring Suns with a troll shaman. I decided that it would look better if the shaman actually looked like it was attacking, not just floating towards the enemy or having fire come out of no where. So, i created two frames/png files. One for the melee attack and one for the ranged attack. So I changed the Troll-Shaman.cfg file, so that it would contain my frames/png files.After seeing how it looked in the game, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out.

But I'm not sure how I should post this in the forum. This is mainly because I changed the Troll-Shaman.cfg file and created two others. I have a game saved, where all you have to do is attack with the shaman to see the attacks.

What should I post/attach so that everyone can see the attacks?

They will be able to see it if you attach the .png file but they won't be able to download it. They will be able to download it but not see it if you put it in a .zip archive and attach the .zip file.
EDIT: I don't know how to make the animation move on the screen so you should attach all of the frames.

Or, just post it as an animated .gif file :)

Just post and attach the individual .png's here. That'll be fine for short animations. If you'd be doing elaborate 5+ frame animations, an animated .gif would become useful.

The ranged attack is very similar to the regular picture of the shaman doing nothing. I looks better when you see the attack.
