Hi Phil,

Good question. At the moment the only way you know what weapon it has
is when it attacks you. If it has a bow you hear a bow and arrow. If
it has a dagger you hear the dagger. If it uses a sword you hear a
sword slash. I don't think adding it to the sound descriptions menu
will help because there is no way of knowing before you get attacked
what type of skeleton, zombie, etc you are facing.

Of course, in mainstream games they have a number of visual ways of
presenting this kind of information. For example, If the enemy were a
mage or wizard they will change the color of the enemy's robes to help
you identify what class of enemy you are fighting. In other cases you
can simply see if it has a sword, dagger, knife, bow, whatever and
there is no question what kind of weapon it has.
