[R-SIG-Finance] News impact curves for various GARCH models in the rugarch-package

Dear all,
I'm working with the really nice "rugarch"-package and currently have an
issue with respect to the news impact curves (NIC).
In an attempt to plot several NIC into the same plot I realized that
while the NIC for the sGARCH, the gjrGARCH and the eGARCH are given with
respect to the epsilon_{t-1}, the NICs for the submodels of the fGARCH
model are given in terms of z_{t-1}.
Firstly I am a bit confused since just like the fGARCH model, the eGARCH
model (as to the eGARCH-model-setup in the vignette) is also given in
terms of the z_{t-k} , k={1,...,q}.
But nevertheless the NIC of the eGARCH is given in terms of epsilon_{t-1} .
At least this is what the "newsimpact(fit)"-output tells me.
Why is it this way for the eGARCH but not for the fGARCH?
Secondly I'd like to have the NIC of all the different models depending
on the epsilon_{t-1} for better comparison.
So for the fGARCH case I thought about calculating the epsilon_{t-1}
values given the z_{t-1} values and the conditional mean and volatility.
Is this a good idea or is there an important reason why the NICs for the
fGARCH submodels are NOT given this way?
Many thanks and kind regards,
Johannes
