SO how is the manual of arms going to be represented in war of rights? Will there be shoulder arms when walking, right shoulder shift at double quick, or support arms when marching long distance? I know they are the little things but the little things go a long way in games such as this.

If im not mistaking a believe a saw in an earlier post shoulder arms and port arms... I could be wrong though I was too lazy to check it again :P I imagine a complete manual of arms would be difficult to incorporate but it sure would be cool..imagine if you could stack arms!!! then again many fellas in reenacting who have been doing it for 5 years still cant get it right :P I'm personally curious in the melee action of the game..Make it Gory! :)

Hehe, don't you worry guys. I can personally assure you that there will be an extensive amount of the Manual of Arms included in the game. I made a veritable cliff of text in one of my developer threads just about the manual of arms and marching as per the times, mostly using Hardee's/Casey's and some mention of Gilham's as well. The men will march at shoulder arms when marching in quick time, and they will go to right shoulder shift, or at least port arms, when at the double. Again, we are looking to make this game as accurate as possible. Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for reassuring us. Makes me even more excited for this game.

Just imagine how excited you will feel when you see battalions moving in formation into line of battle. Hehehe...

Only as long as the the servers have enough slots to enable battalions of men on each side. Either way, still very cool though. I've heard about some limitations on Cry engine when it comes to player count. Anything you can tell us relating to the general amount of players there will be? :D

In the first alpha testing stage, about 200+ player on one server.
The numbers can be increased in later tests :)

Another question about the manual of arms, but this one is more directed toward the video. First of all you guys did a great job with what you have however i noticed that support arms is missing. Is there any reason for this? I mean i understand support arms wasn't used too much while in close with the enemy but i believe that it would be an important visual when making the longer marches into position. I also noticed that trail arms was missing. Now that would be important to have in battle especially when on the skirmish line while trying to keep low or in route step when your trying to move somewhere very quickly. Order arms is another one that would be a good one to add. While standing still, just have a single key make your character go into order arms.

My last question is will each method have a different effect on fatigue?

The lack of a trail arms did leave me a bit befuddled as they plan on adding in Sharpshooters in the future.

Well gentlemen, I think we can conclude that they are probably not finished with every animation yet, so we will probably see more in weeks to come.

I can nae wait to see all the animations running together like nothing you've ever seen!

I can tell you that most of what you note as missing are, as Sgt. Rithal mentioned, merely as-of-yet unimplemented, but with plans for the future to do so. I would not worry at all on that end.

So on average how long does a single animation take to fully smooth out?

I would actually be very interested to know this. Maybe...... maybe...... The developers could make like, a video sped up in time showing the creation of an animation from start to finish? Maybe?

Depends very much of the animation, how many days it takes, usually takes a 2-4 of days to make one, but we can adjust that many times after that,
to work well in game and with other animations.
Video speed tutorial takes some time to create, but maybe later for game publicity, that could be something we can check out
