« on: May 30, 2010, 06:06:05 PM »
Hello Community

i started to create a bow as a weapon for the Blizz ABS.

Look at this:

Notice that you will need an 400x400_atk graphic to get it work.

After you did, it should looks like that:

That's a really nice sprite, actually. I do have a question, though. When the player is facing up or down, why does the bow go sideways? That's not how you shoot a bow. Just wondering :P

You CAN shoot a bow like that. Female characters in GW shoot like that.

Actually you don't need a 400x400 attack graphic. It could be a normal one, you just gotta make sure that both sprites are centered.

Technically you can, but it's unusual. It also doesn't make sense to only shoot it that way when you're facing north or south :P

It's not unusual, it's just another way of firing your bow. Who wants to always make the same movement when firing a bow, when you can also shoot in different directions? Also, when you're more aiming on the height, it is easier to aim while holding your bow vertically? But about the north/south thing, I guess it just looks cooler. But why not make random sprites :D? Calviin, in case you didn't notice, that was a hint.
