Hi,

I didn't like much the original flames sprites - as the animation is a bit inconsistent - so I did some. Well... I tried.

The Flame3 is cute, but doesn't really fit in the game graphic.
Personally I prefer the other two.

Hope you like

Looks interesting (tried the middle one; star shaped without blur). Looks interesting but it's Tiy's decission. Wink Smiley Would allow us to draw some nice fire trails though.

I think, like the first one, as the other ones are to much ol'worms flames, (I never really like 'em)

Nice work Smile

Well the #1 is just a flare, I'm not really loving that one because of the bad animation consistency.

Anyway, it seems a big concern is the similarity to worms. Well i did some more flames.

In the album you'll find:
* the ol' first 3 (1 flares, 2 worms-style quad-flames)
* 3 regular flames with different blending. I used different blending to avoid the fake overlapping of reds and yellows. Anyway, it's just not easy to make good flames with sprites like this. Probably, the best one is the first of these 3.
* A couple of fancy-looking flames (with red for hot colors, which is the inverse of the natural way, and azure flames (i'm a fan of azure flames Big Grin)) but these are just for your fun.
* A very cool walking flame XD
* And finally, something in the worms style, but with 3 spots instead of 4, they look pretty different.

Hope you like them Smile

Mabye you downloaded a downscaled version? Make sure you open the image first so it shows at 100%.

Oh, nice! Just to know, where are set parameters like frame size, frames count and frame rate? I would like to try some new things...

Thanks

I wanted to try flames with sparkles, just uploaded the 11th image with sparkles.

I like it, but it's really cartoon-style. Would be great to have spark particles in the graphic engine, but I guess that if isn't already implemented in the upcoming versions - being a minor thing to do - I'll will not patch the code shortly.

Anyway, hope you like it Wink Smiley

Number 11# Seems very nice, I really like it. Indeed, would be great to have a more realistic fire, as you said, and as seem in Worms Reloaded... Hiding

Nice Job!! Smile

Thanks MXO. Fire is almost all about particles. I just watched carefully some worms reloaded movies and I noticed how improved is the fire effect.

Some fire effects are done pretty well, with particles fountains from the ground up, and also a little explosion effect when the fire touches the ground. Just having those 2 additional effects, with different sprites, would produce a better effect.

Anyway, in the 0.9.14 preview the fire effects of hedgewars looks improved... But such details - which may be essential for game's good looking - involves many things, as PC capabilities, computational power, libraries support, etc.

Updated the fire in the dev version again with some (realigned) sprites from above yesterday. If you're able to, test run it. Wink Smiley

Nice sprite, but it looks a bit wormish...
Nah, it's a great one Big Grin.
