Thread: SWF Overlays?

  1. #1

    Default SWF Overlays?

    Does anyone know if you can use an swf as an overlay? It would be really cool for GEWar, to have a simulation of things like armies in battle.

    Nope, they won't. They just show the first frame of the image.

    The closest to an animation I've seen is a clock someone had built. It was a network link with a refresh time of 1 second, so it sort of looked like it had animation.

    I would think one of the next few updates will at least allow for animated .gifs, but I have no idea...
