No problem, if I get more inspiration I'll make a new message :sad: .
And BTW:

Can Legolas jump on a shield and go down stairs shooting uruks?
Oh my! I do not think that will be in the mod... too much work for such a little scene.


Why not make somehow a little movie of it and paste it in the map (or cut it from the real one :D)

Still would require a lot of animation work. Plus, it's very difficult to make a little scripted scene right in the middle of the battle. Also, just showing a clip from the movie is what EA did. And since this topic is about what we hate about EA's HD, it probably will not work out to well. :p

Actually, the little movie clips in the Palantir was one of the parts I liked about their version... :p

To amend that mistake (I was actually going to edit it) I must say that the only other thing I liked about it is that it's the first Helm's Deep I've ever played, so it gets points for nostalgia. :p

I suppose I could throw in a one-eyed unit as an easter egg. :p

its not something that i hate, but that im rather annoyed about that they didn't include :p

when you watch the tutorial on heroes, there is a scene with aragorn slaughtering a few uruks in helms deep, as well as gimli throwing his axe with two hands. On the subject of little scripted movie bits, i thought that if you could include maybe a bit of the killing on a scripted bridge bit with aragorn and gimli maybe? or at least consider using these two anims please :ohmy: i've always wondered why it never appears in game...

thanks in advance,
Githiran.

That tutorial is sometimes ingame, but sometimes it is a movie. When it is a movie it is much easier to edit then when it's ingame :p . (those anims are a movie). Although it might be possible and that would be cool :ohmy: .

Where is this said tutorial? I do not think I have ever seen it. By the sounds of it though, those animations are not in the game as I've never heard of them before. :p

When you start your BFME 1 Game, you can use many buttons (first menu) and one of them is the 'Tutorial' button. When you select heroes there you see the anim I think ^_^ .

Ok, just viewed those two animations and both are not in the game unfortunately. :good: EA left out some things in their cinematic scenes. Nobody has them.

And I think it will get very hard to get those ingame :(. But you could make a short scene with the anim in it (when the player gets driven back to the keep :good:)

I hate the fact that the cinematics show a million archers but you start with 5 :grin: Also that I have to defend the keep thingy (the horse and rider on top of the obserlisk with no letters just a plain obserlisk with a rider on top. Also the command point restrictions.
Wait... what?

I hate that the bridge to the gate was so small and I used to think no one noticed it. But... when I did the mission in bfme 1 I relived classic movie moments,likesending Aragorn and Gimli to fight the uruks on the bridge,while.... my peasants repaired the gate with peasants :p , but their were some bad moments like when I forgot to close the gate and warg riders got in and Gimli was the only one fighting them :p
