4987 2276d 20h terminx /polymer/eduke32/source/animsounds.c Animation system overhaul part 1. This allows for an unlimited number of .anm/.ivf files to be defined via duke3d.def and played back at any time with the new CON commands. Syntax is currently as follows, but may change:

cutscene "somefile.anm" { delay 10 } // defines somefile.anm with a delay of 10 120Hz tics between frames. a more typical framerate method may come later, but this is how the originals worked.

Once defined, they can be played through CON with the new playback command, also called "cutscene". It works like this:

definequote 12345 somefile.anm
define ANIM_SOMEFILE 12345


cutscene ANIM_SOMEFILE // halts game execution and immediately plays cutscene, resuming execution when finished


Sounds can be played during animations (and tiles can be overlaid, etc) like this:

ifcutscene ANIM_SOMEFILE
ifvare RETURN 12 // frame 12
sound FLY_BY
rotatesprite ...

The value of the RETURN var at the end of EVENT_CUTSCENE determines the next frame to play. This can be used for looping, etc. Attempting to play animations backwards outright is not advised as animations only seek in one direction (so rewinding requires running it through from frame 0 again). This is will WIP and hasn't been heavily tested at all, so please try it out.
