I think it's looking really good. You might consider twisting the hips a teeny tiny bit to give the knees more room to work with. That might smooth out your knee motion a bit, although I don't think it's a problem at all. He is, afterall, wearing rigid armor pieces that will bounce and jitter around when he walks.

thanks - good point.. could do with loosening up a.. didnt want to make things too "swingy" as he's meant to be a kind of psycho cyborg.
Gonna have to detatch the darn thing anyway as the local rotation axis on the left arm is completly screwed... I hate doing the troubleshooting bit
