Well, when I say 'animations', i am looking at having up to 50 - 100 'enemies' active at times each running about firing weapons throwing grenades, and generally causing us much havoc as possible, up to 150 of them on the final zones, with constant wave after wave, and hopefully the player will be going nuts with his weaponry causing lots of simultaneous dying, which I am planning on having several random and length death animations for them, not that they just moan and fall over, sort of thing.

The game I am planning on ending up with, will be quite an intesive non-stop combat game, so lots of mayhem and things generally flying about or being shot up.

One thing you didn't seem to touch on in your reply: How does FIFE handle with loading other maps mid-game? (IE: Zone complete, loading next)

I am soon going to be looking into making a game, a fairly simple game. Mainly a 'see if I can do it' sort of thing, but I do intend on after getting a working proof of concept (as in, proof I can do it) i will probably try to develop it into a full blown game. FIFE is currently the best engine I can find for what I am wanting, an isometric view.

Is the FIFE engine likely capable of doing this sort of thing:
Large amounts of simultaneous animations
Large amounts of AI 'bots' (the 'enemies')
An 'inside' feel, black outer walls, stuff like that. (Like this: Image)
The big one, weapons.
Fairly speedy loading of different maps between levels (if this is even possible?)

I've only come accross one game based upon FIFE (Unknown Horizons), which is the total opposite sort of thing as I am going for (A general indoor shoot em up, similar Zombie Shooter - which the above Image is from)

Secondly: how on earth do you actually launch this thing? I have installed Python 3.2, but whenever I click on anything from the start --> all programs it doesn't load anything. So I cannot try the demo for myself.
