Nice. The jump animation needs fixing, and the ledge hanging animation looks a wee bit weird.
Also, does automatic ledge detection work on ledges that aren't exactly horizontal?
And what about tilted surfaces? Would you be able to grab the ledge of that closet if it was tilted to be standing against the wall?
Also, the hang-from-the-(almost)-ceiling thing was awesome.

Currently you're able to hang from the stairs which are like / . That will probably get fixed.
CT's jump doesn't look that different from ours. Most jumping in games is a bit weird on some level.

For player-control reasons, we have to compromise. Else you get CT-stuff like 'better' animations that are unable to be properly blended with sudden changes (= player-control). Then you get stuff like the auto-roll and auto-jump. And we don't want that ;). So there's a technical reason behind some of the choices.

Oh alright.

You didn't answer that, maybe because the question was weirdly written.

I don't know. I think it's a 'no', but I gotta ask Mulle who programmed it for that.

MULLE HAS SWINE FLU!

The hang pose is really nice, looks like he's actually supporting himself against the wall with his legs but when he moves it doesn't look like there's any strain on his arms. The game's shaping up really nicely, I laughed at his gasps at how nice the map looks when he turned lighting on.  ;D

he should be able to hang there if it's too steep to crouch up imo.

Legs aren't context-sensitive ragdolls. So only vertical hanging I think.

They should be. Ours are.
I don't blame you though. It's only human to have legs. ::)

the reason is this:

To hang on any kind of angled ledge requires IK  (inverse kinematics).  The engine only supports   Hand and Foot IK (only the hands and feet can adapt to the angles of terrain)

For this to work for the entire body,  would require Full Body IK which the engine does not support.


This is NOT in any way related to ragdoll.

I don't think anyone actually wanted that anyway. He's just being difficult. :D
