Does your method easily allow 'bugs' (six legs, walking in pairs), or is
there no correlation between the various legs?

There is indeed correlation between the legs. Each leg is assigned to a
certain time value in a walk cycle. Right now only one leg can be assigned
to each time value, so legs can't walk in pairs, but I intent to add support
for that.

I'll try to animate a spider in the next animation.

Besides the other comments, which I agree with, I think the movement is
suprisingly natural (although I suppose that the algorithm is quite
simple).

I'm not sure if you mean for this quintuped only or if you also mean for the
biped I posted earlier. (I don't think the biped walks very realistically.)
Anyway, they use the same algorithm. The movement from one step location to
another is very simple right now - just some simple sin() functions.

The difficult part if to find the step locations and times in the first
place, and to set up correctly the code so it moves the right feet between
the right locations and the right times.

Weird.

feet on the ground>

I think a lot of those walking synchronously across a plane would look
nice.
