Very lovely. Very lovely indeed. Do they cut off at the edges, or do the images fade out before reaching the border? I can't quite see it in the animations.

Do you plan on adding any more in the future? Elemental-related ones, such as fire, ice, etc.

Also, what program did you use? Particle Illusion?

When you say "do them yourself" what exactly do you mean >< how could i not do them myself D: .. They aren't ripped if that's what you're implying.

And I've had several requests to be on teams etc and so far I've only taken one. Because i get payed. And you can ask him it's been a nuisance because i cant get my damn pay pal to work right.

Mascarpone, these are so helpful you wouldn't know. I demand you keep them coming! :) Your already in the intro sequence to my games credits because I make full use of your work. You should make some skills for stereotypical enemies, spiders, bugs, bats, beasts etc. IMO to give an option for all the battlers! Thanks for your work.

Did you ever find a way to remove the alpha layers? I'd still find them more useful without having to use the Add Blending mode.

It's because of the absence of alpha that the add blend mode must be used.

I don't know how you are currently rendering them, but using PNG image sequence + Alpha would allow people to choose to either use the add blend mode or not.

Ok since you're kinda new i'll explain the problem.

When i output the files to individual PNGs, i CAN in fact remove the black and add Alpha channels but when i use a photoshop script to aut-align them into sheets (because i challenge you to arrange thousands of frames by hand and maintain your sanity) it either bugs up and stops the script half way or removes the alpha channels from the original numbered sets. I've been trying to find a way to fix this problem but i haven't yet ><

You just put them in frame by frame it's not even remotely difficult .. don't be lazy ><

Give me a URL you'd prefer and I'll use it

What script do you use?

I've used http://ps-scripts.sourceforge.net/ContactSheetX/csx.html and that seems to handle alpha perfectly fine. Since I no longer use CS2+, and I use version 7 of Photoshop, I always place frames manually.

thank you Mea ^_^ I'm a big fan of your work.

PS: Meticaln. that script still runs into problems with my alpha ><. I think it' might have something to do with the Aspect ratio of the images..? for osme reason they open by default to 1 :: .667 in photoshop

Great job!

I'm sure you've heard it a bajillion times already, but these are very, very excellent. ^^ Animations aren't as frequent around here as sprites/tiles, but you few members who do them always seem to pull them off beautifully. Thanks for posting these, I know I'll be finding them useful!

EDIT:
To add them to the DL Manager, click "Downloads" at the top of the forum, then the DLM will show up and there'll be a navigation bar. Click "Add" and it'll take you to a page where you can upload them and choose a Category. After you submit, they have to be approved by a Mod first, then they'll be visible to everyone else.

All of your attack and casting animations are great, but any chance we can get status attacks, like poison, stone, etc? The default ones just don't match up to what you have created so far.
