Umm. It was a hitai-ate, not goggles... 8)

Mhm... I use Japanese quite often, so pls. allow, aye? That would be

hitai-ate = hi (flying) + tai (body) + ate (a strike, like in Martial Arts)

A thrown weapon?

About Killgun. It is made from (occult) material; is it meant to be used against demons? Against the Dark Ones, perhaps? I find it kinda unwieldy VS (regular) Humanoids. I like Smartgun much better for those. It can break walls. Hah. Now THAT's a weapon.

A hitai-ate is something like this:



It is a forehead protector. (Above, a cosplay version from Naruto, because it's the most commonly recognized source.)

Oh, I see. TYVM. A forehead PROTECTOR? Looks more like Forehead Strike Assistant:) With THAT on one's noggin, It'd be possible even to knock out a dinosaur:) Although a Knight Helmet could do too.

Anyways, I see now where the Piratez story leads. Wow...
Bottom line, here, patience and tenacity mean EVERYTHING. Thanks again.
PS: Are there living skeletons here, too?

The Zombies prefere to be called differently alive.

TYVM, ppl. Well, he last picture in the intro shows a girl pirate followed by pirate skeletons, so I thought... I just love the intro, but I can't find it on YT. Is it out there, somewhere?

How can one edit the Armor/Body .gifs?  Was trying to lighten some of them with Paint.net, but they're messed up in game.
I've edited other gifs and had a problem with the bit depth, but that does not seem to be the case here.

Does paint.net preserve the palette?

Thanks for the reply Solarius Scorch! Hmm, not sure about preserving the palette. What .gif editor will preserve the palette?

Certainly Photoshop and Aseprite. GIMP as well, if you know what you're doing. And some others I can't recall right now.

Thanks Scorch! I'll give GIMP a go.

PPL, which one you drag to battle - a Smartgun, or a Death Blossom? The DB has various kinds of ammo. And Hell, yeah, I killed a Celatid with it! Fartbag, LOL. 😁

They're pretty different weapons, I'm not sure I would be substituting one for the other.   That being said I try to load up my transports with all kinds of different weapons so I would bring both.

Death blossom is king of its class for most of the game, its only drawback being weight. Smartgun is not that good, I would take HMG instead for massive damage.

Smartgun is amazing, I absolutely love it. Its five-round burst destroys everything, and it has a lot of range to boot. A sixty round Plastasteel magazine ensures that you'll likely never run out of ammo, even if you don't take a spare clip. Atleast until you unlock the HVAP Smartrifle, I would suggest taking the Smartgun on every mission.
