    Need help with boot animation

    I'm trying to make my own and I'm having some problems. I have all the pictures and everything. I think my problem is the desc file. what needs to be changed to make this work? my pic dimensions are 480x854 i have 90 total images in the part0 folder two of each image (is that even necessary?) and the part1 folder has 15 total images 3 of each one. what should the desc file have to make it work? All I get is black. Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure your file is zipped in "store" mode (no compression).

    It still doesn't work when i run the script cp /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /data/local/ will it tell me it copied it or well it just enter down and give me #? If you need me to upload the file to look at it i will. I'd really like to figure this out so i can know that i know what i'm doing for the future so i can contribute to the droid community.

    Here's the desc file. i couldn't get the whole file to upload it was too large. Do I have to name my picture files a certain way? If so that may be the problem.

    Nothing looks wrong with the desc.txt, we really need to see your zip file to be able to make sure everything is good. As far as naming the images goes, it really doesn't matter as long as they increment in the right order numerically for your animation. How big is the file?

    You can email it to me at droidboots at gmail dot com or you can submit it from the form at droidboots.com

    Just mention this thread in the description area so I know what it is.

    The file is pretty big. Way bigger than any of the other boot animations I've seen. Could the problem be the file is too big?

    How big? I've tested animations that are over 20mb that I created from videos without optimizing. They lagged a little at the start, but they aleays ran.

    yeah theoretically, there is no liit to the size of the zip file.
    I've made some that were better than what I've released so far, but the file size was 20+mb (and that included optimizing lol) and they worked well.
    Definitely upload or email to one of us and we'll gladly take a look.

    Thanks for helping out with this too mammlouk
