pretty cool anim. Approved! How do you made it?

I think you want to set AnimHigh=20 as there are only frames 0-19
Maybe even AnimHigh=19, as i'm not sure if the specified frame is still rendered or not. On normal anims LoopEnd and End it is not, so 20 should be right.

I see RA2 has the same bug as TS, where Shadow=no still renders a shadow.

Several segmented lines with Noise modifier on their vertices
Shadow=no on rules definition can prevent shadow

Woah! Really Good work! You can make a animated flameball projectile?

ah in 3d, nice. how about giving the center sphere a slight pulsating effect by making it once bigger during the anim? (start/end 100%, in the middle 200% size)
You could then also use a Falloff map to have the outer sphere darker than the inner sphere, regardless from where you look with your camera on it.

Are you rotating the entire model or use a Noise modifier on the splines to animate the outer vertices of the splines?

no rotating, just noising

Because doesn't the Shadow tag in art just tell the game whether the animation itself has shadow frames, whereas projectiles drawing a shadow on the ground is handled with a Shadow tag on the projectile code itself.

When rendering projectile and debris the game simply draws its shadow by turning every pixel to grey and the actual shadow frames are not used for shadow drawing. Shadow=yes/no in art definition seems to have no effect in this case.

AnimHigh should be 0-based as are all the other looping-related flags (incl. End) except LoopEnd. For whatever reason Westwood made LoopEnd 1-based.
