I've been toying with ideas for a game, and have got code in both VC++ and Delphi that generates a 3d world using OpenGL to display bitmaps and allow the player to walk around using the arrow keys. (soon going to add in the mouse as well)
Anyone have ideas on how to make sprites (have some critters to hack away at)? I was thinking about making them with 3D Studio Max, but i'm not sure yet. What have you seasoned 3d programmers done to solve the problem of making sprites walk around and do some action ie. swing a sword, lie down, stand up etc?
Any ideas are appreciated
