OKOK i wrote this little script in the hope of less clunky server eating animation overriders that are widely used in sl, this AO is as small as i have been able to do it, and as you can see it is also using very few instructions.
by the way the pulse speed do not affect the time between the animation change

if there is any questions feel free to ask

P.S i havent included fancy stuffs like the AO toggle command or multiple stand anim, i bet you can easily adapt this script to your liking

float pulse = 0.01;//the time between each check, adjust it to your liking
//bigger == slower == low resources

//if a state isnt in the list its just ignored, you can add new overriding states here
list states = ["Standing","Walking","Hovering","Crouching","Hovering","Jumping","PreJumping","Running","Sitting","Sitting on Ground",
"Flying","FlyingSlow","Falling Down","Soft Landing","CrouchWalking"];

//list of ther anims yo will use instead if the value == pass on, we let the anim play. One anim per state
list anims = ["ballet stand","ballet walk 2","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots","ballet foots"];
//ok this is filled with MY animations of course you will change it to yours if you want it to work, right?

string anim_overrided= "";
string curr_anim= "";
attach(key id)
if(id == NULL_KEY && curr_anim != "")//IF detached and an animation is running
llStopAnimation(curr_anim);//stop the anim
llRequestPermissions(llGetOwner(),PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION);//we ask for permissions
run_time_permissions(integer perms)
llSetTimerEvent(pulse);//we set the main pulse
string anim_state = llGetAnimation(llGetPermissionsKey());
if(anim_state == "Turning Left" || anim_state == "Turning Right")//this is a little HACK to remove the turn left and right
anim_state = "Standing";
integer anim_index = llListFindList(states,[anim_state]);
if((anim_index != -1) && (anim_overrided != anim_state))//IF we havent specified this anim must be ignored
anim_overrided = anim_state;
//llSetText("",<1,1,1>,1.0);//DEBUG displaying the state
if(llList2String(anims,anim_index) == "PASS_ON")
if(curr_anim != "")
curr_anim = "";
string stop_anim = curr_anim;
curr_anim = llList2String(anims,anim_index);
if(stop_anim != "")
if(curr_anim != stop_anim)//if its the same anim we already play no need to change it
if(anim_state == "Walking")//another lil hack so the av turn itself 180 when walking backward
llStopAnimation("walk");//comment these 2 lines if you have a real backward animation

tired of XStreetSL? try those!
