one problem. The arm at the wind up looks like the back of the hand should be facing the viewer, the way the fur on the arm is The arm seems to be pushing the fur of the neck forward, not back. In the middle the palm is facing the viewer, and the arm is correct for this...

I hope you understand what I'm saying...

Well then...

Here's a 3 frame attack for the new yeti... I hope it'll do until I (or somebody else) get on the go to make a frame or two between 2 and 3 + a death animation.
Attack-frame 4 and defensive frame will be done rather soon I think.
Do you think they need any swooshes? And please tell if there something that looks very very bad and needs fixing.

Frame 3 is my fave! I like how you did the hair/fur on his back in that one.

I do believe we have invented a new means of public transport in Wesnoth. Before he sent them down towards the Nether Regions now it is on toward the Heavens.

Nice work!

Maybe slightly off topic: Wouldn't it be a cool feature if the yeti blow, when hit, causes the unit to get 'slapped back' one hex? Though it would require some modifications to code I think it wouldn't be necessary with a falling / flying frame for every unit. They could just be pushed back, and of course if they die from the slap they should be moved, then die in the square they landed in.

theoretically doable already, but you would have to code a special defense animation for the yeti attack for all unit...

It's looking great. As soon as we have a single defense frame, I'll commit this guy. In fact, I will end up committing this guy before 1.2, defense frame or no defense frame, because even without he's far superior to the previous one.


As for the question about motion blurs - let's leave them off for now, until we get a chance to see what this guy looks like in 1.3's (significantly improved) animation engine. Right now, there's a bug which causes oversized frames to misalign slightly.

I'm sorry, but that made me lol.

Yeti's are hardly used monsters in both MP and SP. The fact that 1 online scenario uses them (and with little frequency mind you) should not require that these awesome images to be redone.

I mean, unless you want to alter them of course.

I've committed the following images:

The death animation has been removed from the unit .cfg, but I've left the images there, as the motion and pespective in them is very good, and would serve as a good indication to anyone intending to update the death animation as to how to do it right.

It loooks great

On the last sprite, it looks like as if the yeti was bowing towards an audience :lol: *
