Yeah you can make any kind of game with ShiVa.
"smoothly" ? it depends of your coding skills, but trust me it's much easier than using, for instance, the XNA SDK...

If your are starting, there are plenty of tutorials, a wiki, the Shando' Shiva book, and and a community to help you :)

if you have more questions, feel free, and welcome ;)

G'day browncrow,

My book, as well as loads of great tutorials etc are available on the Wiki.

As for the rest of your post, I suggest you take the time to look through the Wiki, and most (if not all) of your questions should be answered :D Also check out the tutorials that come with ShiVa, they're an excellent source of info too (especially The Hunt - check out the "making of" pdf) :)

Regards

If your character already has a walk cycle, check out one of the examples, there is a cool little cube guy who walks around pretty nice. I think it uses a hidden dynamics sphere and matches the characters translation to it. This way you'll get you a nice smooth acceleration and decelaration and some basic collision detection.

First get the character attached and moving and then try working out how to match the animation playback speed with the speed of travel (so the feet seem to sit on the floor). You can probably check the linear velocity and modify the animation playback speed with that (but its been more than a year since I looked at those samples in detail so...)

Don't worry about getting it perfect first time because you'll keep coming back to it anyway, wanting to tweak it (perhaps you think the character moves too fast or slow, for example). Or you might decide you actually hate the animation (after seeing it 500 times) and want to do it again anyway.
