animation.frameName not working

  • Hi there,

    I'm a long time user of Flixel, but new to HaxeFlixel and currently working on porting some code to Haxe. I'm trying to import my animations from a libgdx texturepacker export using methods shown here:

    The issue I'm running into is that animation.frameName doesn't seem to be updating when I set it. The following will output casper-down, which is the name of the first region in my atlas.

    Player.hx (extends FlxSprite)

        texture = FlxAtlasFrames.fromLibGdx(Constants.packDir + "Sprites.png", Constants.packDir + "Sprites.atlas");
        frames = texture;
        animation.frameName = "Casper-standing2";

    It's worth noting that I am seeing sprites from my packed image, they are just not from the correct region. Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?


  • Ok, for anyone running into a similar issue in the future:

    TL;DR: Use animation.addByPrefix, and make sure your animation frames are separate regions within the packed png (walk-01, walk-02, etc).

    I gave up on trying to use animation.frameName for this, no matter what I do I cannot get the correct region to load in. The only method that I could get to work with fromLibGdx was animation.addByPrefix.

    In my existing game each region within the packed image is a spritesheet, rather than an individual fram and the game adjusts the frameHeight / frameWidth of the sprite for the animation, unfortunately this method doesn't work now since addByPrefix adds an entire region as a frame so I am exporting all of my animations as individual frames to be packed by texturepacker.
