I've noticed a few mod groups out there putting together CGI-like intro videos for their mods. Have you ever considered this? Too much work? Focusing more on gameplay? I can understand. If no one's thrown this idea out there I thought I'd mention it might help deliver the goods, at least for some of us--I think it'd enhance the excitement for gamers before entering play, shifting them into the DBZ mode and revving them up for ESF's explosiveness. Kaboom. What do you all think?

From what i understand, it's possible. But Why is it so necessary?
I mean, We Don't Really need it..

Uhm, I don't have the experience required to pull off such a feat. I'd wager someone in our team does, but it's alot of work. And I don't think many of us are willing to actually put it in.

Actually,I agree with Prince...the introduction movie can give gamers a taste of what the game is about.It would drag more people into playing the game...I guarantee it.

Closer to release I will be releasing a short video with all the new features and etc. I think that's about as close as it'll get.

I could do it, I'm used to animating DBZ fight scenes. If we decided on an intro theme, I could sync the fight to it. Nothing too big or fancy, but I can do some pretty neat effects. I think'd it'd be fitting to have one since 1/3 is like THE finalized ESF. I'd have to create a new effect to use for the aura though.

I suppose you won't let me pay you in rape dollars, right?

Intro movie isn't worth the time and effort. I'd rather they focus on the actual game.

How much for a minute and a half intro?
Vegeta vs. Super Frieza
Piccolo & Gohan vs. Super Perfect Cell
Goku vs. Kid Buu
Trunks vs. the Androids

Seems somewhat appropriate.

in my opinion we don't need it, think about those who have around 20-30 fps and want to go to a game fast, it would take them forever EVEN if u could skip it..

If Somebody really wants this thing so badly to esf, i'm sure that community will make one..
