The three values in the Animation tab are really just numbers, corresponding to certain IDs.  They don't represent a set of flags, so editing each bit individually makes no sense, and you can just edit the numbers directly in the textboxes.  The checkboxes were removed for that reason.

I'm pretty sure one of those numbers (the third?) is the ID of the quote that sometimes comes up when you use the corresponding ability, with 0 meaning no quote.

They never should have been flags in the first place. Those are 3x 1 byte values.

I can't even begin to fathom why you'd want to use checkboxes, it's like trying to screw in a screw using a hammer. No one's going to stop you if that's what you want to do to thoughl it's not like the end values are different.

    Also, while we're on the subject, the post I quoted is my go-to when choosing ability or event animations.

    Yeah -- thanks, guys!  I get it.   :)

    I understand that the checkboxes aren't actually flags, and I can see why one might want to remove them.  I would likely have done the same for sake of a smoother, less potentially misleading UI.  When I said I found them convenitent, I really just meant keystroke-saving convenient. I found it handy to be able to scroll between abilities and make changes I knew to be a couple bits difference without having to deal with keys.

    Maybe I'm just the only one lazy enough to see it that way!  :roll:
