I had actually finished the second SW frame a couple of days ago, but forgot to post it here. I also did some changes to the first one, so here's both:

Here's an animated example (slightly outdated):

I'll see if I can do the attack frame(s) next.
Damn that's cute! Later will replace my lame attempt with your new frame and also update the previous one, thanks a bunch Grimson

It might take me a little longer to finish the remaining frames, so I'm posting these here just in case.

Guys, are you still at it? :) We are in the desperate need of your help regarding the missing frames for our Keen maps! On the other hand, we think that the community needs its praise as well so we told a few nazi spies to check the latest mods around here... I think they like it:

Screenshot rage from our Keen 4 secret missions in our GZDoom mod "Blade of Agony"
More information can be found at http://boa.realm667.com - so if you are interested to find out more about Keen's grandfather, check the page there! And for everyone else: It would be awesome to have continueing sprite support for the enemies, unfortunately there is still a lot of stuff missing when it comes to rotations. Ozymandias can give you further details if you want to help us out :)

Yes screenshots looks amazing :love
Take your time and do what you can, most important ones atm are Berkeloid rotations and the NW rotation for Dopefish on that last awesome Grimson work. Unfortunately I can't seem to handle the art behind CK, these frames doesn't need just frankenspriting but someone talented like you, Grimson or any other cool artist in this forum. We might also consder to ask on ZDoom Forums and Doomworld at later stage, but we want consistency artwise and you two (you and Grimson) seems to be the most skilled and cool guys! We are still working on 2 maps for Chapter 3 release and then it will be time to playtest the whole thing again and again and again, and probably around May we could release it finally :dopefish

This attracts me for sure a lot.
But let's say i don't like to spoil the party yet.

A question i have, why do you decided for 2d objects in a 3d world?
Was it a technical reason or just to keep the style of Keen?
I don't like to criticize it, commander jameson is just curious.

Because well...

(keep in mind this isn't made with a cad soft this is scripted geometry, i.e. v0 = (0,0,0) v1 = (1,0,0) v2 = (-1,0,0) create triangle v0,v1,v2, sure i have primitives to work with else i would still tinker on my first model. It has been removed from "Pioneer" because no-one seems to be patiently enough to work with that tart but it was the reason why i left or had to leave the project, it was claimed that i dictate the style of the game and all references to Frontier had to be removed, even if not all ships was FE2. There was no real reason for it or a lawsuit running, right when i started out i presented it to Frontier dev. and they felt comfortable with it, sure it's just a spoken agreement and a lawyer could still start a lawsuit (in the E.U. in switzerland no third party can start a lawsuit, at least this sort of parasites we haven't)).

But of course i like sprite based games

This will be my last post for a while here and i will only watch your progress.
