Just extract it in the root of your Wesnoth install.

I am gonna implement these little guys in my campaign as the undead are a major part of the antagonist's army.
Um, i haven't tested them yet, but you got the wrong base frame i think. Cuz now when it defends it looks like his feet move instea of his upper body (He's still trying to boogie!)
No the base frame is OK (in game). I couldn't fully test it, lemme fully test it by fiddling with the faction.cfg file so the Northerners can only recruit the Goblin Spearman line!

I think I might of saved the defense frame as the base frame (they look so similar!)

No, you just have the old base frame and the new defense frame. I had to shift them a couple pixels to line up with the death animation.

I posted the newer base frame with the death frames.

Commited*. In the process, boucman, Jetryl and I discovered a nice engine bug, but the graphics should work as expected in the next 1.4 release.

Except, of course, that Soulless bat will use WC bat's graphics for the time being, until someone makes proper ones for L1.

*: id est, thanks. :)

With the zombie bat why are the outside err... fingers(?) white? It makes them look kind of like feathers, especially with the dark tips.

I'm sorry to say this... but it really looks like feathers! Maybe to much black at the end?
I don't see any problems with an elf-woman hitting somebody with a mace...

No, no it really doesn't. It's just that theres still green flesh at the tips, the rest is just a result of your over imagining that it looks like feathers. Remember that there are ransparent holes in the wing, so the 'feather' effect is mostly because of the pale background, which won't happen in game.

Bare bones on wings? Perhaps if WWR (Wesnoth Were Real) they'd get an MP nerf.

No, no it really doesn't. It's just that theres still green flesh at the tips, the rest is just a result of your over imagining that it looks like feathers. Remember that there are transparent holes in the wing, so the 'feather' effect is mostly because of the pale background, which won't happen in game.
It really does look like feathers in a couple of frames, but if you say that doesn't occur in actual Wesnoth terrain I believe you. (I'd check it against snow, though).

On a different tack, it might be a good idea to change it anyway since (AFAIK) the zombie bat's flight isn't magical and it wouldn't be able to fly with big holes in its wings. Perhaps it would be better to focus the zombification on the body?

They do. A pretty huge one, from 8 to 5.

As for the wings looking feathery: I think they look fine, and like the creepy effect of something flying which, rationally, should be incapable of flight. Further, I can't think of any other way to make a tiny bat look sufficiently dead to differentiate it from the living one.

Futher, why they say these can't fly by unnatural means? after all the normal zombies shouldn't also be able to move either, but they do. The magic does the same on these.

Now enjoy the nice dead bat. Ok. :)
