A question:

How can I make an sprite animation repeat only once?

For example, I want my character to draw a sword from a rock, I made 10 sprites from him by slowly pulling the sword out of the rock to make it look fluid. How can I make it happen without having to change the sprite for each of the 10 movements? I don't know if I explained well...
(I use Mv but there's no Maker specific for Mv, I don't know why...)

MV has its own section in the Latest Game Development Engines part of the forum.

I've moved this thread to MV Support. Please be sure to post your threads in the correct forum next time. Thank you.

I believe your best bet is just to have an event change your character's graphic, Wait a couple of frames, change your character's graphic again, Wait a couple frames, etc. until you've gone through all 10 frames of pulling out the sword. Any other solutions that I can think of would require plugins and be far more complex unless you're planning on doing stuff like this hundreds of times throughout your game.
