Take a look at my profile picture. Fortify animation is composed of 9 different frames. 9 frames were rendered by Poser. The original SBB storyboard has 9 columns. The PCX storyboard created by Civ3FLC has 9 columns. The preview in C3F has also 9 frames. I can only open up the FLC created by C3F with C3F and it has 72 frames for 8 directions, making it 9 frames per direction. If I export this FLC to a storyboard, with C3F, I end up with a correct storyboard with 9 columns. I don't deny the existence of the bug but I fail to see where I can find an over-sized storyboard in all this. Edit: I downloaded Flicster v1.0.1 build 18, opened the flc (created with C3F) with it and it still tells me it has 9 frames. Exporting to a storyboard produces a 9 columns storyboard. Meh, it depends of how you're defining 'self-aware'. The often cited mirror test has its theoretical and practical issues. It's a very interesting but equally complex field and questions.
