This game has at least 2 different humanoid animations for spellcasting. I cannot remember if it is 2 or 3. I definitely recall at least 2. Back in like 1998-2001, the one in use was not the one in use today. It was more of a pushing-forward sort of hands and body animation. I think that sometime between like 2001 and 2006, a change happened and since then, the spellcasting uses the other animation. This animation has the character swinging its hands above it's head for the spellcast. I'm curious as to the background behind that change. Whazzup with that.
