There is a flag in the bone animation header which is labeled the in ANM template code as "ContainAnimatedScale."   In all of the animations I have looked at, this flag is zero so I have not been able to find out what the "AnimatedScale" does.  However, I did notice that there is an obvious error in the template code.  As long as this flag is zero, the error has no effect and the template will parse the anm file correctly.  However, if the flag is not zero, the template gets into a loop with no exit and will produce an error.

If you open the ANM template in the 010 Hex Editor and look at line 182, you will see this:

for (bc = 0; fc < CA.CAnimHead.BoneCount; bc++)

The exit condition is a test of fc, but the loop is on bc.  This line should have been.

for (bc = 0; bc < CA.CAnimHead.BoneCount; bc++)

I am putting this out there for future reference so if we ever find among the thousands of anm files a file with the AnimatedScale flag on, we will be able to parse it correctly using this template.

I have learned so much from Maria's work last few
years, does anyone know if she left any of her tutorial

She decided to move on, I don't know much about her decision, except that it was a big surprise and really sudden.  I sure would've I like if she would've left at least one place to get her stuff from, but she delete everything.

The smoke upon your Altar dies, The flowers decay,
The Goddess of your sacrifice Has flown away.
What profit then to sing or slay
The sacrifice from day to day?

"We know the Shrine is void," they said.
"The Goddess flown --
"Yet wreaths are on the altar laid --
"The Altar-Stone
"Is black with fumes of sacrifice,
"Albeit She has fled our eyes.

"For, it may be, if still we sing
"And tend the Shrine,
"Some Deity on wandering wing
"May there incline,
"And, finding all in order meet,
"Stay while we Worship at Her feet."

Sorry to see her go, she was one of the few and best at modding for TM. We will carry on, but it will be a while before we fill the void.

Several languages still hosted there.
There are also PDFs people have made.
Download the Manual while we still can.
