    Your desc.txt file was messed up, so I rewrote it. It works fine now. Just download the zip, and rename to bootanimation, and you'll be all set. :)

    Thanks for the help! So the desc file needs to be in 3 lines? I modified the Rotten apple Bootanima and the when i opened the desc file from rotten apple it was all on a single line so i did not think much about changing it.



    Thanks!!

    I don't know if it has to be in 3 lines, but that's the way I do mine.

    Also, sometimes Notepad desc.txts don't work. Don't know why, but they don't. So what I do is copy a desc.txt from a working boot animation, and paste my lines into it. I did this with yours, and repackaged everything using 7zip, and it worked fine.

    Thanks i will have to toy around with it a little more. I am getting into Photo shop and this is a great way to practice! Thinking i am going to buy one of those Wacom pen tablets to help with the editing
