Sliding Block (and bonus slot machine animation bug)

Title: Sliding block

Summary: When characters try to walk backward into slow projectiles, they are locked into their block animation and slide backward with a trail of dust

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Get between your opponent and their slow projectile
  2. Walk backward toward the projectile

Expected Results: Just a regular walk backward, I guess? This seems like something that might actually require making a decision about intended behavior.

Actual Results: Sliding backward in the blocking pose

Notes: Easiest to reproduce with Arg’s slow fish and Setsuki or Valerie’s fast walk


Game Version: November 2018

System Information: macOS Mojave on 2013 15" Retina MBP

Bonus bug: The slot machines on the left side of Liars’ Lair do not loop their animations cleanly (the tumblers reset their images very abruptly before spinning again)
