    Description of the Feature:
    • Basically, when you choose an Animation to play onto an event, it's really annoying because you realise you don't remember which animation each one is, the difference between Fire 1 and Fire 2 for example. I suggest a little animation preview next to the selection dropdown which plays the animation with just the graphics in a small box, so it's quick and simple to see what animation you've selected.
    • I made a squibbly mock up, because i have no graphical talent, but I hope it's vaguely recognisable, it's in the Mockup Section

    Code for Implementation:
    Sorry, I have no idea how you'd code this but it might be slightly complicated to make...

    Mockups:

    (Like this, but less like it was drawn by a toddler)

    Why is this feature good?
    This feature is great because of the following:
    • It stops you having to check which animation is which by exiting your event, going into the database then going back into your event. (Saves time and hassle)
    • Looks really cool.

    Possible issues with this feature?
    Issues that might arise from this feature:
    • It might cause slow loading time of the Show Animation command, I don't know if it would but I'd assume so...
    • It might also be really annoying to implement.
    Edit: Nessy reminded me this was in RM2k3 as a feature actually:

    so just like it was in RM2k3!!

    Yeeeeeesssss. I get so annoyed when trying to assign animations to skills and such! This would make the process so much easier!
