I'm only pointing this out because it seems nobody is using the Animation Editor and/or this is my bug, which as stated above, the older versions are fine, but you did say you wanted some sort of feedback!

FYI, it is named aaa because I got tired of naming it the attack itself as I tried several times and all failed, tried meaning, opening and closing, creating then trying to export, several times, which gets boring and time consuming.
As I said, there are a number of problems with the Animation Editor. The inability to export animations is one of them, and I've fixed that one too. It's due to it asking the player to name the file, which is just bizarre and probably due to the message system changes that Poccil made ages ago. Again, I've fixed that for the next release (which will be coming out very shortly!).

The fix I gave earlier will at least allow your animations to be saved, which is better than before.

You probably understand. If other people is taking over Essentials and you continues making your game, do you update your game or copy across changes to a fresh version as recommended?

I am putting bugfix directly into Wikia page that have the same purpose that this thread, but the info is better organized for future references.
I think the phrase "as recommended" says it all. Updating Essentials is never easy, whichever method you use. At least with the "modify the latest Essentials" method, you have a working project to start with - it's so much easier to miss a few changes with the "upgrade your own project" method and make it not work.

Ah yes, the wiki. I should do some more work on that at some point.
