I seem to have a small problem with importing animations into a PD ROM: my animation has 707 frames, but when I import it into the ROM, it cuts off the last few frames and it has 696 (2B8) frames instead. I'm not sure why this happens.

I thought, maybe the animation doesn't move too much in the last two frames and it just discards that, but I've tried altering the last few frames to make them move a lot, which didn't help.

Not sure what you mean. Did a test import to Guard animation 0001, and it showed last frame as 2C3/707. Wrote/reloaded still there. Would need more precise recreation steps.

The action editor description for GE sub-action 68 is incorrect. State bitflag C should state (Opening/Closing) instead of incorrectly reading (Opening/Closed)

Is that even valid? The editor handled that very weird, should've just been bitflag showing text...I updated that particular entry anyways now in beta.

I am importing it into animation F7, which causes the problem. Even on a vanilla ROM, it only has 2B8 frames instead of the required 2C3.

Not a bug, just it's optimizing the import, by adding repeat points (the format allows for if identical frames, to just set spot and count, instead of actually putting the frame in that many times). You can see them in GUI. That said, maybe that's not always desirable, so I added a checkbox that if you uncheck, it won't do the repeat point optimization in beta, but default it is checked.

Hang on: animations are optimised with frame compression if it's the same frame? Oh this has just made my life a heap easier as I won't have to optimise my animations as much before export and code around that!

If they are in a row the format supports repeating identical frames. The minimum run was maybe 2 frames or 4, can't remember.
