Real Dynamic fighting

kick someone and marvel at the physics!
  [vote for,

this would probably be easier to implement in other game generes, but would be cool in a fighting game! the basic idea, is rather than a "game" its a physics sim, so you charicter is composed of a righid body, with some nice costraints and springs, as is the other persons. the result is upon hitting someone, the reaction would be realy cool, not just a preset "injured" anim so far its all easy as pie, see ut2003's ragdoll, or porrasurvat (of even some of the litte programs ive made myself)

theres one problem, the input at the rik of alienating any programmer who reads this, the controls would manipulate the "mucle" spring

a jump button, would contract a spring between the thigh and the calf

this would be hard to get working nicley, but i think it would be possable with todays tech, and alot of hardwork!

id expect a game like this to be created soon, with any luck by me :D

       <eighties flashback>Everybody was Kung Fu fighting,

In fact it was a little bit fright'ning,
but they fought with expert timing </eighties flashback>

       NaturalMotion (link) has developed virtual stunt-men/women/horses which use AI and simulated neural networks to create realistic reactions to injuries. The videos are pretty impressive.

       [reap] - was it really 1975? - wow...
hippo, Mar 15 2004

       hmm, perhaps i wasent that clear...   

       again its possible my idea sucks   

       well having had a quick go at building it, i ended up with some stuff like a crappy "soda constructor", but better rigd-body, and collosion support (err yeah, im one equasion away from perfect colossions)   

       neverthe less that naturalmotion thing is cool   

       well, i was kinda expecting better feedback... (i must be a visinary, like one of those dead-art guys :P)
