This Lugia is so weird. It's original resolution is 64x64. I checked the original file as well as the file resaved in GIMP, and I can't find anything wrong. I inspected it with a hex editor, cropped it, changed the frame ordering, but Mastodon refused to take it. It's only after I sized it up to 256x256 that Mastodon accepted it
that one animated incorrectly as well, lets try this one
oh yea but yea, I checked and the GIF is 89a, GPT, everything is correct cuz I thought maybe it was something weird with the encoding, but even when saved by GIMP and Aseprite, it still doesn't like it - and its not a case of them using the same encoding library, each one was slightly different in the hex editor, but the result was the same: Mastodon didnt like it
@roxy ah my favorite animation format, .gif.gif
@roxy big tail
@roxy 128x128, 16 frames
@roxy timing is working, but it's not...rendering?properly..???
@roxy I'm utterly perplexed
@roxy 128x128, 16 frames, no transparency
@roxy whats bizarre to me is that mastodon supports animated gif custom emotes just fine
@roxy actually these are animated pngs but still
