Animating the door

I got a comment about how to animate the doors, so I figured I’d do one on that.

The yellow numbers are the steps that we’ll keep for animation frames. The green numbers are the steps to getting the next one. You could use #8 also if the number of frames isn’t an issue.

The green background you see for the doors will be replaced by the dark background later. It’s just to help you see how I’m manipulating the door. For step 2, I moved the door up every few pixels, so it’s on a diagonal. For step 3, I reduced the width by a few pixels. For step 4, I just darkened the part of the door that would be furthest from the player.
