Is it possible to import a GIF to use as an animated VMU icon?

Post#1 » Sat Jan 09, 2021 10:45 am

Hi, Dreamcast newbie here. All I'm asking is, would it be possible to compress an animated GIF so it could be used as a moving image in the VMU's screen?

It's not possible, you can only use static images. For a moving image it would require software to be running on the Dreamcast (or as a VMU app) that switches between static images (or frames in a GIF, if you will).
