DHeadshot, every version of Flash treats imported images as bitmaps, IIRC.

Here's an update with the sprites running the other direction. Just had to recolor them. Animated at 6fps or 10ms delay on each frame. So yeah I did find a way to get it done on my own :D
I'll probly have to redo the gun bit on the reversed one, as it's not showing when he turns his body around. At least the wrist watch doesn't have to show.

Keen turns his face away from the screen during the run cycle, but never toward the screen.

Here's today's update. I know the up/down motion normally is a lot smoother, but here it is!

Woo, looks good! And the up/down movement is fine, to me... :)

KEEP IT UP!!!
Combine Garg and Apples in a bowl, simmer over medium heat for several years. Season with a pinch of regret.

Actually, he does, but it's almost impossible to spot.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Just noticed that the bottom of Keen's feet are cut off in one of the animations there.

True. That needs fixing...

Same could be said for the original sprite.
Maybe it's because he landed on the hazards in an awkward position.

I'd thought that yeah, as Deltamatic said, he had landed in an "awkward" position.
As Manny of Black Books once exclaimed (or if not him the scriptwriters): "sat on myself!"

Yeah I added an 8 second delay to when his jaw drops. haha.

And yes his foot is missing the black line underneath. Perhaps the sprite was originally drawn so he was standing on the ground. So that shouldn't take long to fix. I sometimes miss things like that, accidentally assuming the original sprites are without errors.

Is it just me, or do Keen's eyes change color between the walking and death sprites?
