   Mod main intention is to make movement more fluid, doesn`t drastically change dual wield animation. Vanilla animation makes dual wield mostly only attack with one hand. In vanilla off hand is very passive and usually just hanging there static. Never meant to sounds like vanilla is bad, in fact i think they have the best animation from any other game i have ever played, even in 2015. Just a simple tweak that mostly change the animation from "off hand" moves to rhymed with attacking hand.

Above is the full list of animation replacer in this mod. You should be able to recognize which file change which animation so you can handpick any animation that you like or dont like. You can change, remove or combine it with any other animation mod. These was made from vanilla skeleton, should be compatible with any other mod.

For example: Some might dont like the standing power attack, the file name is dw1hm1hm_specialattackpower.hkx you can replace it by any other mods in Nexus or just delete it manually so it will return to vanilla original animation after restart.

I like all-rounder and i love to use and test every weapon type in combat. So i think this mod would also work well with any weapon stance you use, or shield, or magic. Maybe you can also check my other mod Blocking Animation Pack, Magic Animation, Jumping Animation, Killmove Animation. I use all mod i make in my playthrough, because who else would right? ;)

Anyway its better to test mod yourself in game than just watching video or pictures. Every stance while no enemy like in video is different from stance when we anticipating enemy or in combat, vanilla behavior controls the next move, transition, etc. It also could be misleading or video might be outdated. Thanks for using my mod and endorsing, feels great when people appreciate the work.

Update v1.8:
Change dw1hm1hmidle.hkx and dw_sprintforwardsword.hkx

Installation use NMM/MO or simply copy to game folder
Uninstall, delete Data/meshes/actors/character/animations/
