Topic: New item box?

Could any of these be useful?

EDIT: My intent for these was to replace the use of classic monitors in Open Surge.
However, any other use, such as in a cutscene, will work as well. smile
Also, if there are any issues with the boxes as they are, don't hesitate to reply with some
critiques.

Re: New item box?

good! wink

Re: New item box?

It's a good concept

If can be usefull depends if you can put this in an cutscene or in a game art with a character, or better inside the real game smile

Re: New item box?

i don't know, can you give a concrete example of use?

Re: New item box?

Usage as the standard item box in the real game.

EDIT: edited opening post above.

Re: New item box?

Re: New item box?

How these look in-game, you can actually edit the original png file with those?

Cool! tongue

Re: New item box?

Drop-in replacements for images/item_boxes.png.
However, whichever one of these you use must be renamed to item_boxes.png.
(That, or the sprite files need be adjusted.)

Tell me what you think. smile

EDIT: Maybe yellow boxes work for some items, while blue works for others?
EDIT2: Now item box sprite images have the extra frame needed for the new animation.

Re: New item box?

feel good, but i don't like the animation, it should be smooth, but the glass effect of the new item boxes is great!

Re: New item box?

Try this animation with the item box spritesheets I've uploaded.

Re: New item box?

Slight modification to the item box's top and bottom handles. I think blue works best
of the three, but I could be wrong.

Let me know if the original ones are better.

I'm also wondering if this can replace the current item box. smile
