Thanks a lot!
It looks great ingame, the walking animation is way better that way.

So what is the current status? What is missing?

Sprites for the horseman and the soldier. Can't find someone that knows how to use glest g3d files, I asked on the mailing list, they simply linked me the importer for blender, but they did not answer me if the importer imports texture and most importantly animation, as I don't know at all how to see animations in blender, I cannot test it myself.

It is a shame Skorpio is not around :(, do you by any chance have his email as he did some stuff for FreeSiege for you?

Ok I tried that, but he is not responding, and he has not visited the forums since the 17th of March :S

So any news about FreeSiege? What is missing now? Still sprites for the horseman and the soldier?

Does the game have a icon for the executable/binary? If not then I would like to make one :D

I made this icon for FreeSeige, hope you can use it :)

I now need to do this to compile the game:
{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake git libsdl1.2-dev  libsdl-net1.2 libsdl-net1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2 libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev
git clone git://github.com/MCMic/freesiege.git
cd freesiege
cmake .
make
./freesiege

So you have linked libsdl-net1.2, have you begun on implementing network play?

Yeah, I began working on it and then stopped.
I think I did the server part and did not find motivation for doing the client part.

FreeSiege is still missing the soldier and the knight, no news about that.
I was thinking about contacting OpenGameArt, see if they could speak about that on the blog or to their artist see if someone could help, but I did not found any email address on the website. Maybe I should open a topic about freesiege on the OpenGameArt forums.

I don't think freesiege never had any icon, I'll need to look into how to add that to the installation process, thank you for the contribution ;-)

I just recently learned to make debian packages, so I know how to make the icon thingy :)

You can see the details here, you just need to add a "menu", a "*.install" and a "*.desktop" file to the debian folder and edit them properly (see my link).

I hope you finish the network part, it would be awesome to play it through the network :)

Hi there,
I just read through most of the topics for this game and joined up as it sounds like a really fun project
my concept for a freeSiege logo:
http://s1089.photobucket.com/albums/i35 ... gelogo.png

I'll probably do some more ideas later when I have some more time hope you like it :)

Hum, it seems you based your logo on the old datas, which are non-free.
Look here : https://github.com/MCMic/freesiege

qubodup's logo is not bad, svenksmand's logo seems too "glossy" imho.

ahh ok my bad,
I just drew up a possible cavalry sprite, I'm going to attempt to animate it later:
http://opengameart.org/content/cavalry- ... -freesiege

hopefully you could find a use for it

Wow, that's great!

I was going to say it would be better if he had a lance instead of the sword, because the old non-free sprite had a lance, but the new free icon for the knight has a sword, so your drawing match it, which actually kind of good.
I'm just not sure about how to animate a knight with a sword on a horse, but feel free to try something ^^

PS : Do you prefer to continue the discussion here or on OpenGameArt forum?

Thanks :) I'm glad you like it
I can change the sword to a lance quite easily but I drew it with a sword as that was what your picture showed

I'm not great at animating but i'll give it a go, I don't know quite how the attack would work with a sword as it is too short to reach infront of the horse, the way i could think of it working would be if the horse overlapped with the attacker (behind) and then they would fight whilst the knight was next to his oppenent but i guess that would require different scripting.

I'll try the animating now :/ don't know how it'll turn out though

we should talk here because the subject is more related to your game than opengameart :)

just updated it so it has a running animation:

Okay.

Your other option is to draw a lance and redo the icon so that it's coherent. I think it's easier to adapt the icon than to try to do an animation with a sword.

For the horse animation, see http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: ... imated.gif for instance.

Hum, the gif seems weird :
- a part of the horse and knight doesn't move
- the animation is jerky (not sure it's the right word, it's what my French->English dictionary told me for "saccadé")

The old non-free animation use 8 steps and is a lot more fluid.

okay thanks for the gif you sent me, I'll add an extra step between each one when I next have a chance and I'll make it move more, jerky is the right word, je comprends :)
I'll change the sword to the lance and attempt to do the same to the icon but I'm obviously not as good at drawing as the person who did that
