    after a quick check, you have .jpg files named as .png, that could be your problem

    *plus you can remove the thumbs.db that windows left in your part0 folder

    **plus plus i think you have compression set on your .zip make sure you package it on Store

    and you can use jpgs in the animation, i'm just not sure how mixing pngs and jpgs work, i know 100% that using 100% pngs works and using 100% jpgs work, but i dunno about a 70%png 30%jpg etc works

    what do you mean change them?

    Also remember when zipping up the file to not use compression just store the files

    i can change the copy you uploaded with the changes i think need done and reupload it to see if it works for you

    Another thing too, the Resolution is set reallllllyy small, i tested it on my droid 1 and it had about a 1/4in on the sides in, and 1in top and bottom are black.

    but here's the zip i tested

    ++The last 5frames that were JPGs is a Blur, i knew to expect it so i saw it, but it was on screen for around
    1/5 of a second.

    Once you start to learn the workings of the desc.txt file you'll get the hang of this in no time

    i remember writing a long post about it, but even since i wrote that it has changed a bit, with sounds
    and such, but i don't think the og droid does sounds

    I wouldn't add more frames of the same, i'd change the pause value of the desc.txt for p 1 0 part0 to maybe p 1 2 part0 and see what happens, like i said once you figure out desc.txt you'll understand it alot more.

    check out this thread for a quick reference
