This Lugia is so weird. It's original resolution is 64x64. I checked the original file as well as the file resaved in GIMP, and I can't find anything wrong. I inspected it with a hex editor, cropped it, changed the frame ordering, but Mastodon refused to take it. It's only after I sized it up to 256x256 that Mastodon accepted it
Even then, after it's been uploaded it does not animate correctly
Here's an old sprite of Lance, cropped to 64x64. Will he animate correctly?
Lance animates correctly??? but Lugia does not. Lance has a frame delay of 100ms, but Lugia has a frame delay of 300ms
Here is another Lugia, but this time I upload it with a delay of 100ms (I can't see if it animates until after I post it)
It seems to animate just fine, so lets try it with a delay of 500ms?
that one animated incorrectly as well, lets try this one
Now lets try Lance where all his frames are set to 300ms instead of 100, and he's still 64x64
creating a brand new image with the same image data copied over and Mastodon rejects it
Mastodon also rejects the same Lance animation, which I reduced to 2 frames
meanwhile, here's an incredibly small particle effect for Lance's spin that's unused
