Great stuff! Looking forward to it. When I have something up and running I'll send you a build, it would be good to hear your thoughts. :)
It's quite a bit of work (understatement!) , but Is there any chance of having a version of the the characters with separated weapons and shadows?
The weapons could be an overlay / underlay, and it would be great to be able to swap out swords etc... you know the score... :)
