Hey guys its me, Captain Dan, with my FIRST mod release EVER!!!

Its a sprite that replaces the explosion1.spr with something I did in MS Paint... a big white square with the word BOOM on the inside. It shows up when you do things like blow the flak cannon on dod_glider or blow open the axis bunker on dod_glider, but that is only for example.

Yes, I know, it is crude and simple, but it is my first mod EVER!!
So please dont flame or criticize it.

only constructive criticism please.

Thank You and Enjoy!!!

:) :D

Could be, i'm not sure though.:)
It's too big anyway.

@topic: [friendly mode activated] This looks good, but it's not my taste [friendly mode off].

Eh.. okay.. This is kinda funny and all but.. do you actually use it in-game?? :eek: I'm getting flashbacks from the afro american player model thread here..

Anyway, assuming you weren't just totally taking the p*ss, you could have at least used a decent text font.. Something more comic-like. I suggest you get over MS Paint (download Paintshop Pro or something) and actually put a little effort into your next release..

Also, I don't know what software you've used to make this sprite but with Sprite Wizard you can easily set transparencies (no more big white squares) and compile several bitmaps together to create a neat sprite animation.

PS: Yeah, that sig needs some work too.

remember, this was my FIRST mod EVER for ANY game. I attempted making a Walther P38 skin back in my moh days, but it failed miserably :D . Ok, i'll do some experimenting with transperencies, and that BOOM thing is being done away with completely in my sprite pack.
btw is the huge signature u talking about mine? it is huge, i know!

Thank you for the constructive criticism!

i dont know if i can think of anything constructive to say..i mean...why even release that.... .o

Dan, we appreciate any contribution to the custom DoD community, but we do have sig limits. The User CP stipulates that sig images must be "450W x 150H or less per image". Your 640W x 300H is way too much. Please correct this :)

01-20-2004, 09:54 PM

could you make this into the .spr for me :D

01-21-2004, 12:47 PM
Lol, the contents of my hankerchief would make a better sprite than that Dan.

ROFL gabagoo, ure sigs crack me the hell up

It is a really original idea . Very fun .

I've tried it ingame , you should try to make it like an explosion sprite , and put the boom letters within it , so it actually looks like an explosion , now , its only a big square , which can be scary..:D

k, guys, i fixed my sig for you.

sorry i havent responded lately, been having probs with microsoft IE.

That BOOM square thingy is gonna go by-by in my new sprite pack that should be released either today or tomorrow. it is realatively small, and i'm not gonna reveal whats in it. i dont wanna spoil the suprise, now do i?:) anyway, the boom square is gonna be replaced with something a little more... colorful.
