God damnit. There'd have been another 3 items submitted but the gifs keep smashing the colors on the items.
If you're interested, here are the ones that I couldn't get working properly:

WTF are you using to make GIFs? Unless you're really using more than 256 unique colours per frame, you should have no problems with colours being ruined.

aka Andrea.

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.

Hey Dusty how did you make those Scout miscs? Did you just modify the in-game strip for them?

Would have been nice if you had explained what is and isn't possible, Lorgan!

So that's just the hat sprite extended to cover only what is being changed, what do I do about alignment?

How do you mean "alignment"?
Also as a note, all the sprites are decapitated, so any hat sprites require the head to be apart of them

I think I answered my own question, I just have to leave the head where it is already (The same distance from the top and left side) right?

Just with regards to dead bodies, do the corpses still spawn or does the dead body animation play and then end on final frame?

Oh for fucks sake, I just noticed all of the items I've submitted have had their colors eaten by compression to some degree.
Lorgan I think you're gonna need to find a different method of storing the sprites.
GMSPRs maybe?

It's not compression, it's colorspace fuckery.

Whatever.
Point is I don't think gifs will work for this. And since lorgan said he can't use strips because he can't determine the size of the frames from them, that leaves only the .gmspr files

Edit: I mean if I'm wrong, I'd appreciate being told how to get the gifs to save properly. But also one advantage of the GMSPR files is that we could also have partial transparency at that point too.
So either way.

gifs don't store colorspace information the same way as PNGs. The formats aren't entirely compatible.

Don't see what that has to do with this, honestly. Mostly I'm confused because lorgan's got his two taunts:


Which don't appear to have any colorspace issues.
But mine do:

the corpse spawns, does the animation (if there is one), freezes on the final frame and then fades out like a normal static deadbody

I'll ask raivo when I get back from school (but the ones you already submitted can't be fixed, clients don't redownload sprites they already have)
