Not too many people in here, and I only visit every other day or so...

Anyways I''m not quite sure what you''re asking for. You might want to look into general sprite animation. I assume that''s what you''re looking for, setting up sprite maps and animation frames. If it''s not try to give a little more descriptive explaination and I''ll see what I can do for ya.

Are you using GDI or DirectDraw to draw your graphics? Do you have the images as separate bitmaps or tiled on one bitmap? Take a look at PowerDraw for an example of sprite animation using the frames tiled onto one bitmap. PowerDraw is a set of components that allow you to do 2D drawing using Direct3D8.
