    Could you correct his posture?
    The soldier has always been hunched over a bit. I think this has carried over a bit into the new player model.
    In the original player model, imho, the axe idle anim is the best looking scene of the player.
    Something about his stance with that axe make him look like he means business.
    Matching that angle/height of the torso might help for the other anims.


    The model looks really good though, keep up the good work!

      Please delete the alpha channel in your normal and you can use offsetmapping with default settings again.
      Seven, I think I understand the prinicipal behind what you are saying (I think--- I learn slow), but in this screenshot I don't think I had a working normal map. It looks the same with and without the normalmap I made with the Nvidia photoshop plugin. I also tried a forum suggestion of saving the original tga to a bmp and back to tga to remove the alpha channels. Still looks the same. Right now in the same folder as the model (id1/progs) I have a file called dogtexture_norm.tga, if that is the right file name? It's confusing because I am so used to the dog.mdl_0_norm format that darkplaces uses.

          it should be named dog.mdl_0_norm.tga
          .
          are you curious about what all there is out there in terms of HD content for quake?

            Thanks for the suggestion Splitterface and Seven, not sure why but it's still not working. I can of course turn off offsetmapping and it looks fine, but that's trading one thing for another. I would really love the best of both worlds!

              I think it's natural to lean foward and hunch a little when running, especially if you expect people to shoot at you.

              I'll see what feels natural to me when I do the animations for the player, I personally think the axe pose looks good for the axe, but a forward facing torso when holding a two handed weapon would not be ideal.

                if you are seeing the dog weird with offset-mapping turned on, try making a simply pure black 32x32 texture and call it dog.mdl_0_norm.tga

                and be sure to make filetype of it tga so it overwrites any other normalmaps you might have for dog
                .

                    I've started work on the player animations now, going to try and get most of them done this evening, he has a lot of deaths though which will slow me down.

                    The axe run was a bit spazzy so I reanimated it from scratch, here's a comparison gif.



                    I'm much happier with my new animation C:

                          I am already giving them some secondary motion by having them lag behind the leg motion and easing them in and out at each end so moving them a frame back will exaggerate the effect comedically.

                          That said, if you wish to edit them yourself when it is finished I will include the Blender files.

                          • Try holding a large, double bladed axe like that, in one hand with the head pointing slightly downward, for an extended amount of time. Then try to run with it like that. The quakeguy must have enormous strength in his arms and hands.

                            Tbh the original has the same problem, that axe should be held in two hands while running or scaled down a lot.

                            • I just registered to say I love these models. Excellent stuff! I got them working in DirectQ but my preferred engine is Fitzquake, is there a trick to getting them work in that?
