So I have been working on my game. I decided to borrow assets as place holders, but they more and more are fitting with the theme and the overall goals of the project.
I am not a graphics artist by any stretch of the imagination. I can touch up photos a little bit, but I have a hard time when I am drawing things from scratch. My time is best served coding/developing. To this end I have made peace with borrowing assets. Eventually if I do try and make this mainstream, it will be adjusted, but my primary concern has been getting this done, and working.
I am also a member of spriters resource. I observed curious behavior though when I tried to pull some of there images for my own use.
So I go to import a new image in the animation editor and I encounter this screen,
If I simply import it as an animation, check result 1, if I do it as a sprite sheet, check result 2, if i do both, check result 3.
This is the spriters resource page, if you need that. https://www.spriters-resource.com/fullview/30805/
