The poses are animated. They are simple 3-frame "idle / weapon ready" type animations, as explained in the description.
The animations are to provide additional personality to characters or cutscenes. They can be used in rpg-style battles if wanted but that was never their purpose.
Additional "battle animations" are on the to-do list for a possible future expansion. This is a LOT of characters though so that is not an easy task.
That's understandable, I wasn't trying to be negative about the sprites, they look great. Just wanted to be honest as to what's there. I bought it expecting some basic attack animations.
I hope to see them in the future, thanks for your great work.
Battle animations would be a big plus for the project I'm working on with these. Personally I would need side view animations to support a battle mode similar to SNES era Final Fantasy games.
Would be cool with them being offered as an additional bundle to purchase.
In the works!
yes! Atack animations should definetly be included, in a separate pack even, if you want. To simplify your work you could just animated the actual combatants and leave civilians out. I suggest you animated a couple of civilians too tho, would be cool for a bar brawl.
