The boom headshot in 1.5 looks kind of odd... I was expecting more of a sudden vertical spout of blood, not a fountain of it coming in all directions. I hope that this headshot aspect gets rethinked.
If you were checking Mantis you would know that head explosion had been changed already.

Unfortunately, that's something that not even multi-million-dollar budget games have managed to do right. Animations and ragdolls don't mix well.
Though that is for 3D games. 2D death animations are easy stuff.

I don't agree with the extra graphical load. Soldat was never really meant to be graphical It's just plain intense emotion. I don't really see a need for eye candies. It was never a necessity.

I still love the effect on the m79 explosion, the push back from barrett. (Right through the torso, and it will fly them back riiiight across the screen *giggles*), which also goes for spas.

But I would love to see internal organs showing when players get shot in the stomach a LOT.

Oh, yeah. Combining it with an intact ragdoll system is where it all goes tits up.
I attend grammar school, last grade, and ignorance is all around me. Well, good for them. Ignorance is bliss.

Which I use. Death animations without a ragdoll system seems a little too hard for me. But coding s decent ragdoll throwback/fall system isn't hard at all.

A mod or something for this would be awesome.

I definitely think this is a good idea (although I can setlly with just standard death animations). It would be interesting if you added a poll so we could see how many people agree with and oppose this idea.
Anyone play KOL?

A mod for this would not be possible without editing the source codes. Though I can do with with a really nice physics Dll.
