I?m really thrilled.

I still think you guys should've put in some new death animations. Like some guy dying by a Sword of Quietus (Fighter) should not fall over and die. He should be cut in half or so and you see the upper body fall off the torso area, and then the legs fall over. I just want a little more realism also. And someone dying by a *fire weapon* just falls over. I think I want to see them BURN and ROAST. Like the Human players death animations from a Bloodscourge and that Cleric flame weapon die bye their bodies falling on their knees and burning upward. I'm sure you guys have seen it on human ONLY enemies. Do that and that would add more flavour to the mod. *That was just an idea* <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> + Don't forget about a cloaked enemy idea that I mentioned. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

...new weapon in the trailer?

I don't know what he means. And don't forget we still have loads of ideas to add, so complain about the death animations after the first release.

I just posted an idea for it. I think death animations should be fixed. How hard is it to cut an Ettin Frame in half by the torso diagonally for the Sword (non mana) kill? <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

Reasonably easy but it would put back release several months for new death frames for every enemy.

Its not quite that easy: 1) Its 20+ new frames per enemy. 2) Need blood added for the slice. 3) I need to add an extra 15 or so things to my 'to do list'. 4) You'll want bold flames <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> 5) Um,....... Our artists seem to have gone missing. 6) They have quite a bit to do already. 7) Can I stop yet. But I do like the idea but maybe leave it for TSP so we can keep all you happy, and I don't have to code it twice.

Grab WinTex from <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.ravengames.com/heretic">http://www.ravengames.com/heretic</a><!-- w --> and extract the needed frames, then work them over with an image editor, and send us the result.

Another reason that Moose did not said, we know that you all users want quality and realism as you said before, that's what it takes so long to make the frames. And we would have to think on it, because it would take too much work and it's not so easy to do...

Let's say chances are high (99.9%) that either an external (like Dark Mage) contributes those death animations in complete or there won't be any in SE. This is definitely not something that would be worth another month of waiting, right?

The images can be opened in Photoshop if you want, you can use any tool that can edit BMP or PCX images that are the most basic and general formats images are saved from WAD files.
