Awesome pack, love the art work and the animations look amazing. Just out of curiosity, how many animations are on one sheet, and how many frames does each animation have? It's kinda hard telling them apart.

It's different for each sheet, so it's kind of hard to say. Also, some animations are designed for flexibility-- for example, multiple animations in a row could be used together for a longer effect, or used individually.
I might write up some sort of guide eventually. Good idea!
It is kind of hard to just drop and use these into a MV project. How do I set them up in the editor? I added a sheet and told it to do 15 frames (the fire one)for example, and no animation shows up when I click Play in the Animation area. Do I have to do something different to get it to work? There was no .json file either.
Great pack! Can you please add the license to the More Information box? Is it possible to use it for commercial projects?
Yes, commercial use is fine!

Thanks! We're utilizing some of your assets in a project we hope to release for the switch. Great work!
Hello! I am a fan of you, finalbossblues. I have a number of your things and even donated/tipped the Name Your Price things. I have some questions about these, please answer them:
1) What can I do with these effects?
2) Can I use these effects in a top-down fighting game I'm making as special skills? I have my characters charge and release states. If I can do this, how can I do these?
1. Lots of things! It's kinda hard to say, because they're designed to be versatile. They'd be mostly useful in fantasy combat situations, since the pack is focused on weapons and magical spells.
2. Sure. Not all the animations will fit perfectly-- but for the most part I tried to imagine how the animations could be used in turn-based battles and top-down action combat. A lot of the animations are variations of generic "impact" type effects, which would have use in lots of ways.
For more info, I'll paste this from the readme:
The primary goal of these animations is flexibility:
Weapon animations are designed for use in traditional RPG battles as well as action-RPG combat. Frames can be flipped or rotated for further variety of application. Impact and effect animations, such as the smoke or dust clouds, should have a wide variety of uses, including as environmental detail.
Some parts of animations can be used in combinations with other animations. Some animations can loop infinitely -- hopefully it's clear which ones are capable of this.
Here's an example of one of the sword animations used in a top-down action scenario. The animation is flipped so it can work in each direction:
Hope that helps.
