toGif allows you to turn scenery in a map into .gif's without the use of a hex editor.

How to use:
1. Open up a fresh and pretty command prompt.
2. Open up an explorer window.
3. Find toGif.exe and drag it onto your command prompt. You should see the path to it in quote marks.
4. Add a space to the command prompt.
5. Find your map and drag it onto your command prompt. You should see the path to it in quotation marks too!
6. Press enter. It should give you a list of the scenerystuffs with a number next to each one.
7. Type the number of the scenery you want to change to gif.
8. Keep going until you've typed all the numbers of the scenery you want to change.
9. Type -1. Press enter. It saved it!
10. ...Profit!
11. Why are you here?

Source included, can be made on lux easily with gcc.
*Disclaimer* I wrote this in < 1 hour so it probably won't work. If there's a bug then sue me. Actually don't, just PM me.

Useful program, will definitely save mappers looking to use animated scenery some time. /added to the fan apps sticky.

But then, does Soldat support animated scenery GIF's having the .png file extension? I know you can use PNG images for soldat mods if they have the .bmp extension.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

If its extension is not .gif, it wont load the gif engine for that scenery.

It is for those who have none or near-none experience with either a hex editor or just the concept of hex and modifying stuff like that.
Makes life easier, good job.

I have no experience with computers at all and its just renaming. bmp, jpg,png to .gif.
Even a dummy like me can understand that.

This program and hex are equally easy in my opinion.
