I'm currently working on a more "efficient" way to include animations, in other words, a non-tiled one. Too many tiles and you get glitches mmm-hmm. You know where to look for it when it's done.

Could try loading each frame into a buffer then show each frame as a bg instead of using sprites (I guess sprites is how this was done?). Potentially a lot of memory being used to store all the frames but using a static buffer for it should work. I'm sure the animations won't be more than about 500kb - 1mb

To load a tiled Bg externally, you need to load the Palette, the Map and the Tileset and then you need to parse the .C file into the PA_BgStruct structure. Why do all that if you can just init a 16bit Background and load jpeg's.

Also, the days of worrying about the filesizes are long-gone - loading from Nitro and FAT is common in homebrew. All you need to worry about is not crossing the VRAM limit and the RAM limit at any given time.
