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.
