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

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 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 :)

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
