  • Include the names of the folders in quotes in the "Config.txt" file.
  • Run "MakeAnimSheet.exe" and wait.

NOTE: The contents of Config.txt will be directly loaded, so do not make errors of any sort. Include the folder names in the "List" array.

Author's Notes

You should find the program where you found this script. It is recommended that you use the program, since it is minimal and prevents a possible crash (when this script is used in RMXP).

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, you can find me at:

Enjoy ^_^

I tried using this. It made faulty errors on the animation. It put the last 3 frames in the middle of the 1st and 2nd frames. Just want you to know.

Yes I did, 1-12 in the order I wanted them. I even did it 3 times to make sure.

Are they all the right size of 192x192?

I've done 115 frames without any problems...

fantasist heres an idea, you should make it so it places it every 192 pixels instead of right after the first image just to make things easier

Yes, I tried it the first time without it being like that, but it made it 192x192 squares anyways. 2nd two times I put them on a 192x192 square, still same problem.

I made it my self after much frustration, I just wanted to see if it worked. It apparently hates me.

I ran into the same problem, so Axerax is not the only one getting that problem.

OK, I just realized something. I misread the post, I thought the script messed with the images, not the placement. It happens because 1 to 12 are sorted as: 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, ,9. It's the way the Dir.foreach method reads the files. It's not really a major problem. To fix it, name the files like this: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12. It's not really much of a problem imo ^_^
