Ill make you an avatar. That is Dwarf Fortress related.
« on: June 15, 2008, 04:26:59 pm »

Yep. Because I am so generous and have skills with Flash 8, I will make you an avatar that is or isn't animated.

Do you mean Flash has a feature where you can export animations to a GIF? Or do you just draw the frames in Flash and then animate them in another application?

Either way, it's certainly generous of you. You were wise to pick a relatively simple subject.

I know flash has .gif export function. And yes, it is very generous. Thank you.
Actually, I might be willing to split some of the workload with you, if I can find my copy of flash lying around here somewhere.
Dwarf fortress-style stuff is not terribly difficult to create.

EDIT: Spelling...

Oh crap, did I just lock myself into some sort of deal? :P Anyway, I made mine in Photoshop by drawing layers for each frame (or specifying layers to appear in given frames) and then animating it in ImageReady by turning on and off layers in each frame. I guess I can help as long as the requests don't involve too much original artwork on my part.

 I can help. I already made some basic stuff in Flash for avatar reasons.

 In fact, I first suggested this!

And blows; I thought that was the point... He IS an airbender.

Do you want it to be flashing (legendary) or normal?


Nevermind that, it only takes about 30 extra seconds anyways.

Ugh. Flash 8 is exporting the legendary as an animated gif, but without the actual animation.

 Make sure you have the exportation settings right. That or a real animation problem.

 My only problem is making a grid suitable for these characters. But once I have that down...

 Well, expect many Flash animations on DF.

This is what I've got. Farmer 1 is the normal, Farmer 2 is the legendary "blink", farmerfull is the exported gif found in the flash, and the swf is what it says it should be.


I don't know what I did wrong, I even did the exact same steps I did on mine, but it still did the same thing.

 Huh, works fine with me. My steps:

 File, Export, Export Movie:

 Lets name it, FarmerFix...

 Dimensions not changed
 Resolution not changed
 Standard Colors
 Smooth and Transparent
 Set to repeat

 Then I export it and preview it. Fine to me. Does look a little grainy though.

 Edit: I also change everything to vector graphics, because I find them easer to work with. Sure pixels are more DF accurate, but screw that. This is Flash. I mostly say this because I have little to no experience with pixel editors.
