The second one is much better. It resembles Inferno's beam effects IIRC. Sorry, but the first one just looks silly
:D:D

You know the way that a beam is actually alternating between 3 different beams during firing, to simulate the beam flicker?  Wouldn't it be cool if the beam glow would do the same thing?  Or perhaps use an ani instead.

Later!

Those all look very good. The first one looks more than a bit anime (in the good way). Just stunning. :)
[I am not really here. This post is entirely a figment of your imagination.]

I don't really like them too much.

They're to large, but they're a big improvement over the lifeless... powerless stock effects. That image I posted though is what I'd really like to see though.

The stock effects looked a lot better than these.

These effects look like some edgy 16-colour graphics (the brown one), like some odd solid crystal balls (the first one), and like some misplaced low quality flares (second one)

And a solid disk looks better? Don't think so. At any rate - the stock effects need improving somehow, congrats to Kracker for making an effort with it - hopefully he or someone will refine this into a decent effect.

It's quite nifty, I look forward to seeing you refine these further. :)

I never said the stock ones were good. They were just, uhm.. less odd?



just look at this mjolnir firing the stock beam, then compare it to this:



Now, the second one looks a lot more like a disk - not to mention the weird edge thingy and all that makes it look like a solid crystal ball whereas the first actually *tries* to look like a blinding glow effect.

NICE! :eek2::yes:

As for the FIRST beam, with the big circle around it, I would rather recommend star-ish charge-ups in the beams.
