This change unlocks some existing animations in the TNR, and adds a few more.

The stock firmware ships with 6 animation types:

  • Simple
  • Circle
  • Square
  • Diamond
  • Cross
  • Plus

Strangely, the following animation data is present in the stock firmware image, but is not accessible. As of release A030, these animations are now selectable in the normal way.

  • Vertical Bar
  • Horizontal Bar
  • Block - this is a filled square; a bit eye watering at large sizes
  • Thin Cross

As a bit of fun, the following additional animations have been included. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!

  • Spiral (anti clockwise) - increase the size to at least 8 to see the effect
  • Spiral (clockwise)
  • Orbit - here “size” is used as “duration”, since the size is fixed.
  • Heart - a heart shape
  • Firework - a combination of Plus and Cross
  • Drop - a bit like raindrops rolling down

Compatibility Issues

None known.


First included in A030
