Can Animation like this be made to a projectile. I know there is a way with FireStreamSys (but it doesn't behave like this one). Also i couldn't use custom palette on the "[fireStreamsys]"

I also tried to make it like "Anim=Flame" (in [Weapon] section) but then it plays the animation in all 8 facings at once.

If i use it as normal projectile the whole animation will travel from Point A to point B

Split it into 8 separate anims & add them to the weapon anim like this; Anim=FLAME-N,FLAME-NE,FLAME-E,FLAME-SE,FLAME-S,FLAME-SW,FLAME-W,FLAME-NW

or to skip the splitting into separate anims, code art.ini like this
[FLAME-N]
Image=FLAME
Start=0 ;just an example, find the correct index yourself
End=8

[FLAME-NW]
Image=FLAME
Start=8
End=16

\Edit
don't forget to add all these anims to the [Animations] section in rules.ini

I don't know if that works in TS but it doesn't in RA2/YR. Just something to be aware of.

huh? why shouldn't it work?
It's the most basic art.ini coding that works ever since TS.
What doesn't work here?

Because it doesn't work and I made a suggestion to LKO's ImageShaper
And there is a visual glitch that Anim of Weapon doesn't turn when the unit turns so such an anim should be as short&tiny as possible.

My apologies, I had distinct memory of it not working properly, at least when set up with 32 different facings (Ares feature) but it appears that this is not actually the case and I likely just messed up something. You can ignore what I stated in my first post as it appears that it does not hold true.

EDIT: I tried it out with the animation that gave me trouble back in the day and turns out my comment wasn't entirely unfounded since it plays more frames than it should for all but the first one in Anim list (seemingly ignoring End but it doesn't actually go to the last frame of SHP), don't know if that's due to more than 8 directions, large amount of frames in single SHP or something else.

So i separated em like that, and added it to the weapon. Now i see only the 1st "FLAME-N" animation in all directions .

Double check all you code, you've missed something some where. Are all the anims listed under [Animations], do they all have entries in the art(md).ini with the correct code, etc, etc...

All lines are there inside Artmd. In Rules i've put everything in [animations]. As i said i can see the animation, so i guess its not problem related to artmd. It just doesn't rotate. This is my weapon code:
[MechFlame]
Damage=25
ROF=30
Range=7
Projectile=InvisibleLow
Speed=100
Burst=2
Warhead=SAFlame
Report=PyroShoot
Anim=FLAME-N,FLAME-NW,FLAME-W,FLAME-SW,FLAME-S,FLAME-SE,FLAME-E,FLAME-NE

(In the art section i've just put "custompalette=xx" under every FLAME)

I also tried that thing where u add
Image=Flame
Start=0
End=17
             ...But didn't work as well..
