Hopefully this is in the right spot and Im making sense, but I cant seem to wrap my head around the side view animations. Ive played around with the different classes and how their animations reflect their actions, but I cant figure it out beyond that. I was thinking of trying to remove the attack option and renaming the magic option, but I would rather just add animations to whats there

What I really want in my game is for all the attacks to have the same sort of ready/idle animation as the magic abilities do. Ive only ever used the system that doesnt have the actors showing so I dont know what Im doing at all or where to start XP

If anyone has a tutorial or even just a simple explanation on how this works, it would be super appreciated!! /tho i cant do much atm, my computers on the fritz :C ive been using my familys pc when its available/

These are the resource templates, and the first one shows you which group of sprites is used for each action. Ready/Physical is the first group of 3 on the second row. Ready/Magical is the first group of 3 on the third row. It sounds like what you need to do is remove the first 3 sprites on row 2, and copy the first 3 sprites on row 3 and put them on row 2.

When you say "remove the attack option" do you mean the skill? Definitely don't do that, as Attack and Guard are default skills that are hardcoded in the engine.

I just tried that and it was perfect!! Thank you!!

Ive come to understand that so no! XD Is there anything on creating custom elements/weapons/skills and assigning the animations to them? Is that something to do with traits? I think making more options appear when choosing attack would fit what Im thinking of

Doing clean-up on tall-ified sprites, filling in pixel by pixel where the stretching warped the image, feels incredibly tedious but also highly rewarding when one zooms out and the sprite looks even better than before.
I found this app on the playstore and I'm loving it, it's very good for organizing project ideas
hmm one of those days where there's a lot to work on with my game... annnnnd I have no idea what I wanna do. most of it tho, involves drawing lol. either enemies or NPCs.
I'm going back to the default RTP, in the interest of getting it done. FSM is lovely but slow to work with and has tall doors. And switching to tall sprites would mean a lot of franking, and also the horses will be small.
I think I developed a stalker trauma (stalkerfobia?) because of my previous work publishing games on Steam. :(
