The enterprising duo of ExDeathevn and RobJ have teamed up again to release Off-Handed Shield.

This is a very slick demonstration of having Dink hold a shield with either a fist or sword equipped - it looks pretty darn seamless.

It's worth playing the demo just to see it in action.

It's quite amazing what innovations people are still adding to a game that's almost 25 years old.

Remember to check it out thoroughly if you want to make the most of it yourselves, and let me know if you find something... unexpected
There will be an update patch eventually too, I'm working on a 2nd Shield design so there will be more graphics & scripts.

In the style of Bloop the Fish, the shield disappears when pushing things. Also what's all that stuff commented out in die.c?

Skurn: Yeah, no. I briefly considered trying to make a spell animation for the guard effect, but reconsidered. And the Kite-shield that comes with the current version wouldn't work with any sort of throwing attack anyway.

Yeoldetoast: The assumption is that Dink needs both hands to push (or pull) anything heavy, so of course he puts the shield down for it. You've never seen him try to push stuff with a bow or sword have you?
The bread crumbs have been waiting, but the ducks aren't biting.

Uhm, you and RobJ are working together on a new D-Mod that was originally meant for the Dink Throwback contest? Just a random guess, since no one seems to be taking one.

Off-Handed shield has been updated, with all the functions, fixes, Guard timer bar and 2 shield variants (default Kiteshield & Buckler) from Charlie's Legacy included.
