Animated tiles

I'd LOVE a way to see animated tiles in Graal. Currently you can do a few methods, but all ways currently make Graal run like crap. I think the easiest way would be to allow gifs to be run better with addtiledef2. How? I dunno, I don't code. But that would be the easiest way, considering I don't want to see more of the tileset being taken up just for animated tiles.

Stefan, could you possible look into the rendering of gifs in tilesets to make it where it can actually be used for effect? I'd LOVE to see water animated, like the beauty that was LttP:


It adds so much life to the world.

I think if it was able to be done on zelda however many years ago, it should be able to be done on graal now.

The problem with animated gifs for tiles is mainly speed?

Aye, once you place too many gif tiles the client really begins to slow down. Because of that, you wouldn't be able to use it for something like water.

Maybe you don't have to make ALL the tiles animated, just a couple placed in strategic locations. If you make just one movin water tile and use it in certain places it can create the image of the whole mass moving.

But this thread is not to address ways to work around the limitation, but to fix it. I don't want to be strategic with my animated tiles. I want to make ALL the water animated.

Sorry to notify you dusty, but Graal just can't handle all that awesome.
