I have decided what i am going to do for the looping animation. It will be a running jump, so it will look a bit loke he is doing hurdels.

The leg snapping thing is the loop repeating its self. i dont know how to stop it.

anyway, here is the start of the jumping loop. the movment is a bit stiff but i have only worked on it for a few minutes.

The body should spring harder and the left leg definately shouldn't jerk back towards the block.

I ahve done alot more on the upper body. When he is jumping in the air he tenses a bit and when he lands he jerks. It is supposed to be a long jump wich is why he spends so much time in the air.

well looks now like he's skipping, springs too far foreward, with back leg trailing a bit too far behind.

But still, its progress.

Good work so far Some Guy - It looks like you have really thrown yourself into this challenge. I like the model you have chosen to work from - great game.

At the moment I don't get much of a feeling of weight in your animations, but as you have said, you have just started so I am sure this will pick up.

hey someguy,

good work so far... ur cranking out these loops really quick.

anyway, look at ur foot control and see if there is some sort of foot bend attribute. ie. at the ball of the foot.

when ur character jumps, he should push off the ball of the foot. this is especially so if the jump is long, as he will need to extert more energy to get the distance.



Josh
