                                                         (Just keep pressing and hold down key and character will decide what do  

 

                                                          to.

 

                                                          Either climb up, or down, stop climbing, etc. Also, to sit in a chair you

 

                                                          just walk into it, hold down key like W and character will "decide" to sit.

 

                                                         To get back up you just reverse. Like the S key.)

 

                                                         If you walk slowly up to ladder going down or cliff’s edge character will

                                                         To climb down.

 

                                                          If you run up to a cliff edge or edge high off the ground and stop right 

 

                                                          on it, the character 

 

                                                          will lean over it for a second and lose its balance and correct itself.

 

                                                         If you start sitting on a chair and in front of a table with a note or book 

 

                                                          on it and hit the up arrow character will finish sitting and pick up the 

 

                                                         note or book and read it.

 

 

 

WEAPONS AND SWORD FIGHTING:

 

 

 

1                                                       If revolver is in holster, character takes it out and

 

                                                         aims from the hip.

 

RMB                                                Tight aim. RMB again to come out of tight aim and just lose aim from

 

                                                         hips. Swipe with a sword if sword in in right hand. (Revolver can

 

                                                         still be held in left hand).

 

LMB                                                To fire any weapon or stab with knife.

 

                                                         If character is holding a rock, bottle, book or any other object  in his one

 

                                                         hand he will throw that object.

 

                                                         Stab with sword is sword in held in right hand.

 

MMB                                               Block if sword is held in right hand.

 

H                                                      Swap weapons in hands.

 

2                                                      For the next weapon. If a rifle for example is slung over shoulder. Or if a

 

                                                         knife in held on belt or pouch.

 

3, 4  ….                                            More weapons character is carrying on him.

 

To keeps things simple character will always carry a knife through the belt and the revolver in holster. Rifles are always slung over shoulder.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PHYSICAL FIGHTING:

 

 

 

F                    Character goes into physical fighting mode. (He will punch and kick only

 

                     even with weapon in hand).

 

RMB             Kick (Will kick with whatever leg is right for the moment).

 

LMB             Punch / hit hard (always with right arm and fist).

 

                     Punch kinda blends in with hard push depending on situation.

 

                     You can punch out a window too or break through barrier.

 

MMB           Block.

 

F                  Character comes out of physical fighting mode.

 

                    (Weapons reload automatically when empty.)

 

 

 

CLOTHING:

 

 

 

C                              If C is pressed character assumes “clothing mode” posture. He indicates with body

 

                                 language that he is ready to remove clothing, put on or swap out.                             

 

LMB                        If you click and hold down, you cycle through head, hands, face (glasses),  and so on.

 

RMB                        If you press RMB character will remove whatever he is wearing on that part of the                        

 

                                 body selected by the LMB actions.                                           

 

C                              Again, character comes out of clothing mode and resumes last mode he was in before

 

                                 C was pressed.

 

If you happen to have a hat in your hand while pressing RMB when head is selected character will swap out whatever is worn on the head at that time with the hat in his hand.

 

Character can also remove the belt and holster with side arm. He cant put it in his backpack though but he can put a knife and the revolver in his backpack.

 

 

 

BACKPACK:

 

 

 

B                           Character goes into “backpack mode. He removes his backpack and opens it on the 

 

                              ground or on a low wall if he happens to be sitting on it or a table.

 

RMB                      He drops whatever is in his hand into backpack.

 

LMB                      He picks an item from his backpack and lifts it out to look at it.

 

                              If you click and hold down LMB he cycles through everything inside backpack. This will

 

                              continue looping until you release LMB and then he will have a single item in his hand.

 

                              If you change your mind you drop the item in bag by pressing RMB.

 

H                           Swap items if both hands full. He does the picking and dropping of items only with right

 

                              hand.

 

B                           Again, to come out of “backpack mode”. He closes the backpack and puts it back on.

 

                              Keeps on holding the item (if he took anything out) in his hand.

 

 

 

PUSHING OR PULLING:

 

 

 

P                   Character goes into pushing or pulling mode. Gets into position and is ready.

 

W / S             Push or pull object.

 

W / S             Stop pushing W or S to release object being pulled or pulled.

 

                      If you walk backwards and forwards character will swap between pushing and

 

                      pulling. (It will know where to place hands).

 

P                   Character comes out of pushing and pulling mode.

 

 

 

DROWNING:

 

 

 

If character is diving under the water the viewer slowly just becomes blurrier (as he is losing consciousness) and eventually just turns black as he dies, if he doesn’t get air in time.

 

You can also hear the distress in his voice.

 

There will be more air bubbles escaping in front of the viewer.

 

The blurriness creeps in from the side so the player can still see the center.

 

When blurriness reaches center of viewer that is when everything turns to black and character dies.

 

 

 

HURT OR WOUNDED (medical needs):

 

 

 

If your character is wounded his animations will reflect that. So, if he jumped off a too high object and hurt his ankle he would limp when he walks or runs.

 

Then he would run slower and maybe fall at random intervals.

 

Character gets up himself after a fall.

 

If he got shot in the shoulder he would hold his shoulder with his one hand or lean in on that side.

 

His body movements will reflect what the type of hurt is. He will also bleed (mesh swap) if he got hit or scraped with something).

 

 

 

M                   That will tell the character to heal himself. So, he will stop, sit down and take out a med kit 

 

                       from his backpack and address his wounds. You can’t control how it will fix his wounds the 

 

                       character “knows what to do”.

 

M                   Again to either interrupt procedure and get back up.

 

                       If he is putting a bandage on he will finish that part before he responds.

 

                       If you just wait until character finished with healing, then he will put everything away in his

 

                       backpack and return to state he was in before you hit M.

 

                       So, if he had his revolver out when you hit M he will pull it out of its holster again and hold

 

                       It in his hand after he is done.
