Hi,
The tunic sprite of the hero must indeed have animations with specific names, including "walking_diagonal". This list might be missing in the doc (oops) but it corresponds to the ones of Zelda Mystery of Solarus DX. You can edit Zelda Mystery of Solarus DX and look at the sprite "hero/tunic1".

Actually no, "walking_diagonal" is only used when taking spiral stairs to mimic the animation of A Link to the Past.

Maybe... you can try to do an event hero:on_movement_changed() that changes the animation depending on the movement's angle, when the animation is "walking". But it seems risky.
