    I wanted to create low-resolution animation in 16 colors. Something like pixel-art but I am not "art". :) So I though that Personal Paint would be quite good tool for the task. Unfortunately PPaint doesn't work correctly on current MorphOS. I can set a storyboard with frames but when I use "Play", PPaint consumes 100% CPU, animation is not played and can't be stopped.

    I have tried MorphOS version of GrafX2 (2.7 and 2.8 available on MorphOS Storage). Unfortunately the application crashes on MorphOS 3.16 when I use "Save" button.

    DeluxePaint doesn't work without OCS/ECS/AGA.

    Does anyone know other soft for create hand-made retro-pixel-animation?
    If not, I will use GrafX2 for macOS.

    Have you tried keeping the "2" key pressed?

    Yes, I have already tried all numbers on keyboard. :) Before play an animation I can switch between frames (prev/next).

    One solution is to use two programs, which of course is a bit clumsier.

    For example, draw the anim on PPaint (luckily switching to prev&next frames works which makes drawing easier), but then save it to be played with some other program. You can save the anim from PPaint and load it in RNOAnim where you can then play the anim and adjust the frame delays etc, and save it to other formats (gif, apng...).

    @MDW
    i dont reproduce your problem with last GrafX2 2.8
    Have you last SDL2.0.20 installed ? what is your hardware (Altivec or not), some screenshots, logs help me to understand.

    in all case, i try to build last GIT version with last SDK / SDL2 etc... and i try to test on all my hardware before release.

    i rebuild GrafX2 last git with lua and tiff support, if someone can test it (before release it):

    Thank you for new version. I have tried this. Unfortunately this version also crashes when I click Load or Save button.
    I have the latest SDL2 libraries (downloaded from MorphOS Storage).
    I use PowerBook G4 1,67GHz with MorphOS 3.16.

    If can't reproduce the crash, reason of the problem in only on my hardware/system. :(

    Th first click. I can just run GrafX2 and just click Load or Save or use F2 or F3.
    Other functions works very well.

    This is funny solution but... solution. :) I didn't know that RNOAnim allows to save anim in other formats. Great. I will use the tool for this. Thanks!
