I hope Raven puts in cool small animations. You know in JK+MotS like when kyle changes from saber to guns he would turn and, in my opinion a bit jerky pull each weapon out. With the new engine this should be a lot better looking.
Also, what when you're in 3rd per. using guns, I hope we be able to see the saber. I also hope it moves and shifts whenever you walk, run whatever you do.

I have to say that in a lot of Raven games (especially recent games) their characters are always well animated. Using mo-cap should pick up a lot of the little nuances of movement that can really bring a game alive. So I'm confident we'll see some fluid weapon changes, etc., throughout the game. ;)

I'll have you know I spent *months* practising that 'elbow bent just so as head tilts back and the beer flows' motion so that it would be perfect. I'm still waiting for word when they'll be ready to mo-cap it. Ah well, back to 'work' :p

LOL :D

Now that would be funny in-game. ;) Walk up to a bar in a cantina, nick some poor NPCs brew and knock it back.

Yes it would be nice to see Small Animations. In half-Life there were lots. that Freeman guy couldn't stop moving his gun around. i hope to see kyle spin his saber like obi-wan did in TFM.

JK has that weird animation were it looked like he was cutting off his houlder after u left the comp alone for about a minute.. Remember?
REally a screen-saver i think though

Yeh it looked like he was using his saber as a back scratcher.
attempted suicide i'd say

i would like him to start messing around with his lightsaber, then accidently kill some NPC. Like the sort of thing in Waynes World with Garth and the drill up the side of the car.

But thats just me..

They must have cut his pay. He can't afford the high-quality scotch he's used to! ;)

I think he'll take anything as long as it has a little percentage sign somewhere. : ) Shandy anyone?

Maybe some saber pelvic thrusts? or after bringing it down on someones head, he turns it off and blows it like a smoking gun :)

I'm happy enough, if Kyle takes a look around few times, when he is idle, but always keeps his saber ready for possible attacks and then perhaps spins it only once; maybe it's his own way of keeping himself calm. :cool: Otherwise moves like that are quite useless, especially during duels, because they tend to look like you are playing the big shot and that's why you easily get your butt(or face) kicked, like Maul shows to Obi-Wan few times before their final duel in TPM. :dmaul3:

I loved the tribes and tribes 2 animations. You were able to perform them yourself, with preset keys, like little celebration dances and things. It was pretty funny. But I suppose some of those things would be un-called-for in this game. Rest assured, Raven will think of something.

Speaking of the animations, MRJ, I noticed that some of the animations in EF were recycled from SoF. I'm refering to the death animations. Will JKO be sporting all new animations.

I hope so
Anyone knows if motion capture is being used for all animations or only for saber moves?

CaptainRAVE

I remember that in EF. I would have thought JK2 would be more original.....well I would hope so anyway :). Maybe they'll be the same animations as SOF2. Im not really bothered though. As long as they look good I dont care which game their the same as.

Yeah, that's true. It's really no skin off my big toe, either. It just caught my eye.
