2D Sprites Character Animation

Recommended Posts

Hey How does Diablo and the like do it's character animation with multiple weapon types? Do they draw new images of the characters holding different weapons, with all the angles, or are the weapons seperate sprites. Thanks

They explain how it was done in the Diablo II postmortem. http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article1220.asp

I can't remember how but I think they rendered different regions of the body with different equipment instead of the a character for every possible combination of equips.
