The power struggling looks pretty nice. I hope their aura isn't what they show in the vid though. I'm interested to see what their melee system is like and how they've handled transformations and individual attacks. If it comes out today, I'm definitely playing it tonight.

ESF lost 80% of the community when they decided to release that downright screwed up version they call 1.2 and trash exactly everything that made the mod in the first place, now, i wouldn't want to upset all the 1.2 fanboys out there but uh.. the mod has passed it's days, and frankly i'm seriously suprised that the mod is still being worked on.

DB: S has already succeeded where esf failed, looks can be decieving girls.
Hate to give in to this guy and let him win...but dude.. I mean come on...look at DB: S again...it's for the source engine and they come up with...that?

Not that I don't agree with you about the looks, but you have to consider that its really difficult to find artists with experience willing to put work into a Dragon Ball Z/anime project these days that are over the age of 15.

For there first try I think they did awesome. Hell, just managing a fairly functional release was a massive undertaking itself that a relative few can attest to having done. Another year or so and they'll definitely be putting out budokai level work ^^

Yeah, that's the one thing that comforts me when I play DB Source: This is as bad is it's ever going to get :)

Therefore...there's nowhere to go but up ^_^

I thought the same about ESF. And then 1.2 happened. And then 1.3.

Ya its very sad when half life models are better then source models lol.
Its not really hard to find any modelers now a days take a look in the model section you will see a lot of talented modelers and skinners in there and I know plenty other ones on different boards other then ESF.

You get bad modelers then your going to get a bad look to your mod its just that simple. I like the looks of the games when playing them ya game play is another huge issue as well but if the game is not stylized and then have not so good game play well then that makes it a bad mod.

I gave it a try I disliked it both graphics and game play wise I wish them better luck on their next release hopefully their modelers, skinners and spriters and etc.. can do a better job because I'm pretty damn sure it can't get any worse.

From all the videos of it that I've watched on youtube. It certainly looks like it has the gameplay, but it's lacking in graphics. Cosmetics can always be improved on. I take it that they focused on getting a fully functional alpha that is enjoyable to play, rather than beefing it all up in one load. I tried playing the esf alpha, and it sure as hell didn't look as good as beta 1.1.

They're taking baby steps, but it's going somewhere. Considering it's the source engine, it actually has alot of potential. I'm sure someone out there will be attracted to joining their team and improve the aesthetics.

i like the alpha so far,it's buggy but I play it real often and when you know the "secrets" and know how to do some moves it gets nice,but the lags and slowdowns suck real bad.

No dude, it's not like ESF: they did NOT sacrifice graphics for gameplay (though don't get me wrong, the HL engine limits ESF's graphical capabilities as it is, and what ESF DOES have is pretty marvelous for it's engine's limitations. The gamplay only JUST exists in this stage. The motion and fighting is really buggy. I like their lock-on ability, and it's cool that their teleport can put you behind another player, but the lock-on should also allow you to swoop in the direction of your target, which would somehwat tighten up how the fighting works, because right now just hitting somebody is a pain.

Really though, it's not a bad alpha as far as alphas go, but I'm STILL really glad that DBZHOOD thought better of it's earlier plans of merging with DB:S. We're way better off. Plus our animators, mappers and modellors are kickass in comparison (I try not to compliment myself in that statement, as I AM a DBZHOOD team Animator).

The thought of a 6 month old Dragon Ball Z mod being better than ESF is literally comic material. There is no way that it will have the depth that ESF has created in even a year from now.

Maybe 2-4 years from now it might be worth checking out.
