    Looks good, but is there any way you can make it full screen? That would look awesome!

    typing just adb doesn't do anything.

    adb shell - gives u access to your file directory through the prompt

    adb push (local) (remote) - allows you to push a file to the phone.

    Search the forums for the full adb commands if you need more, they are posted here somewhere.

    Ya that's my plan.

    Source files are 1024 x 768 so i intend to try it out, will hopefully get it to go full screen.

    Now in full 848 x 480 so should cover full screen.

    Still jumps around in the animations which i have to work out yet, is smooth on the computer, but this will give full screen till I can work on it some more.

    Just my $.02, but halfway through the animation it does what feels like a split (where it's cut across the middle and separates towards the top/bottom) with more "matrix" text beneath. It just doesn't feel quite right to me.

    I've noticed that a higher frame rate helps alot with keeping animations from being jumpy. That way if the system drops a frame because of heavy bootup processing it doesn't stutter the animation nearly as much.

    Ya that's exactly what i want to work on , cause it is a smooth animation on the computer, so something on the droid is causing the skip.

    Thanks :icon_ banana:

    I will work out what's causing the jump as soon as I can.

    I was checking out the animation via my pc not the Droid and that's where I noticed the split. When you run it is it all downward motion?
