I`m sorry for the long post, but we are proud, because we two made this animation (1 minute long) from the scratch within two month.

ohm, i don't see any pictures...
probably something wrong with your webspace?

Hello, I`ve edited the original post. Shame on ISP of Hungary. Hope you`ll see the images

Can't see more than 1-2 images but it looks sweet to me :)
Is it by any chance based on the old Platoon game for Amiga?

Hehe, I`ve edited it again...Holy shit. Please comment it whatever you think, ladies and gentlemen.

As far as I know, it is not based on the AMIGA game, it`s a new concept, etc.

I don`t know more, because after this cinematic Digital Reality cancelled the contract with the renderteam. :-(

Cool stuff. As far as the 'Are cinematics needed for games' question, it's not really a yes or no questions. If the cinematics are done well and they add something unique, or serve a specific purpose that can't be done in game, then yes, they make a great addition. If they detract from gameplay, are poorly done, or serve no purpose (i.e. advancinc the story, charater building, ect) then they should not be included.

can i just say they llok really nice, it sort of reminds me of the old game lost patrol, but on bigger scale, very nice work indeed.:bounce:

Thanks guys...I`m afraid I post always at the bad time, because there are very few comments...

You'ld probably get a lot more comments if you embedded one or two of the images in the post instead of linking them. I disregaurd most links cause 90% of the time they either don't work or are to slow. Just my take on it.

Yeah Lost patrol is what I'm talking about, damn cool game if I remember correctly.. but then on the other hand I also like My little ponys when i was younger
