Halley's weird eyes...

Hi,I've bought Goldfish Aquarium 2 and I love it,Prolific did a awesome job! It's really amazing to see improvements made since the first release, especially faces of the Goldfishes and their realistic animations but after long observation I've noticed a little bug on the animated face of Halley...It's eyes seem to duplicate during the animation of the gill cover and that give Halley a weird look...

Has anyone noticed that detail?
Thanks for responses!

Hey, Rick... Thanks for kind words! Also, thanks for the heads-up; I'll look at Halley tonight and see if I can figure out what's causing the problem. Maybe we'll be needing to put out a 2.01 release soon...?

Wow. Once you see it, it's really obvious! I'll try to fix it in the next release, or the one after that. Thanks for catching that, Rick!

Are you saying that you can actually see the other eye 'clipping' through?

LOL... Actually, I think this problem is even lamer than that, it looks like a combination of three mistakes I made: somehow I left Halley's eyeballs a tiny distance away from her body, AND the texture map of the body includes the dark eyes... AND I'm animating the gills such that they pull away from the eyes on each breath... D'oh!!! It's amazing that nobody ever caught that before. Probably because she's such a little, inconsequential-looking fish... poor thing.

You're talking about Morgan, right?
Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Järvafält" as the latest addition – Go have a look and tell me what you think.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

I noticed the same thing immediately. His eyes deform strangely when his mouth moves! It looks quite freaky. I have a 40 L tank with nothing in it right now, and I'm a little sick of having to have a big heater in these things. So I'm thinking of maybe a variety of coldwater species. Luckily there is more to choose from then just comets
