What I want to do seems like it should be extremely simple. I want to make my Running and Jumping animations play all frames, then loop between all frames except the first.
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 > 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 > 2,3,4,5,6,7,8
I don't know how there are numerous tutorials for 2D Platformers and none of them have even TOUCHED on this basic concept. I have been searching for days and haven't been able to find ANY relevant information ANYWHERE to the point I'm near ready to give up.
