Omg holyshit!

I haven't seen the movie. Is it any good?
Posted by Neuro 7th May, 2007

This rocks Love the dynamic spittle

*sets as screensaver*
Posted by ben mercer 7th May, 2007

The bit where he kicks the persian messenger is.

The rest of it is pretty much either extreme stylised violence or perverted sex scenes. Some of it is pretty crap but its a good film for a laugh. If your expecting much more though it will probably dissappoint.

You guys did d/l right? Cus my download counter is still at 0 :-\

Says 1 for me.

You should make another version, shoving the messenger down a pit with randomised obstacles and stuff for him to hit. Kinda like some of the maps in UT2004 with random pits of death. Much ragdoll fun to be had

Ahh well I knocked up the ragdoll engine in about half an hour so its not very extensive... it only supports collisions with the floor, not obstacles. Maybe I'll make another some time.
Posted by Guru Rinpoche 7th May, 2007

This is hilarious. You should definitely consider making this into a game, like the penguin/yeti game--players could send their distances to a highscore table online. And my favorite is when he kicks the persian in the nuts, sending him five feet up in the air, but with no distance.

Omg excellent work =D
Posted by ben mercer 7th May, 2007

I'll probably try make a better ragdoll engine soon, this was more of a practice run.
Posted by Johnny Look 7th May, 2007

omg this so awesome !
Posted by Willy C 7th May, 2007

Hah, cool. thumb up
Posted by BROO 7th May, 2007

This is not Sparta :---(.
Posted by Guru Rinpoche 7th May, 2007

If you develop the rag doll physics more, you should write an article about how you did it--I'm very curious to know
Posted by Neuro 7th May, 2007

Haha I didn't know there were spikes at the end! I had the guy get kicked in super slowmo, fly straight to the end without hitting the floor and having his head impaled on the bottom spike

When you get a good engine, you could make a series of different situations and put them all in a screensaver.

I love this more than I probably should
Posted by ben mercer 7th May, 2007

Heheh the spikes were put there just because I didn't thought flying off the side of the screen when he reached the end of the map would be a bit boring.
Posted by Pixelthief 7th May, 2007

If you're familiar with the 4chan/ytmnd edits that made it famous, I'd say the best idea would be to put a solid brick wall at the end of the map, which would make him explode if he hits it. for reference
Posted by Ski 7th May, 2007

I fell asleep and then the screensaver woke me up olol
Posted by renneF 8th May, 2007

freaking hillarious. one time he kicked the guy in the balls and he kinda just fell over
Posted by chrilley 8th May, 2007

Holy shit. He flew right through the spikes.

Sometimes I'll be downstairs eating and I'll hear a muffled "THIS IS SPARTA!" ... *THWACK* *CRUNCH* *BANG* *BIFF* *CRACK*

Then I have to go and turn the sound off.
