Hi all, I'm still working on the KotC 1 trailer for now, it's a tonne of work. The new patch for KotC 1 is done. However, since I'm still recording video sequences from KotC 1, I might still find a new bug. So it's better for me to upload the new version only once I've finished recording.

The spell effects look good too, I was wondering whether the different melee damage types are also visualized by different effects? It would be great to have different effects for damage types/weapons like swords, blunt etc
Thank you very much! Essentially, it's the same system as in KotC 1, so you have a different image for energy damage (fire/cold/acid/electricity/sonic), holy/unholy damage, axiomatic/anarchic damage, vampiric damage, ability damage, and normal damage (piercing/slashing/bludgeoning). The size of the image depends on the number of points of damage. The various damage types also come with different sound effects.

Would be great to have the possiblity to use animated sprites and to have a module look like similar like that example screenshots from Fantasy Grounds. The method with different file names also sounds easy to use.
I would like to implement that system. Sprites do have a lot of charm.

Thank you for the suggestion! We'll see.

Pierre, I just read your reply on the KS page regarding the effects. This means that we won't be able to add new spell effects [gfx & sounds] and "damage indicator" images? Just a note: Modding is what keeps games [& gaming communities] alive [..for example lot of modders like to focus on improving the gfx/sfx elements of a game.]

Another last-second question
Like my customers - I m soft developper too - I begin to have ideas when the job is done

Then, in kotc1 we see foes HPs and we can adjust last attacks to remainings;
it cound be different, with just a general indication of state (good, injured, bad, near death or I don t know)

This is a good idea. I like when games allow for vague/relative health indicators like in the Infinity Engine games. In BG, for example, I also disable numeric HP display on the sidebar to make my party's health feel a bit more analog.

I guess we can't just cast Scrying on him :mrgreen:
[Edit] Assuming he's a Chaotic Good Titan Outsider with a +21 will save, one must be at least a lv 5 Cleric with a +7 wisdom modifier just to hope to locate him :D
