I took the red rage boot animation and made it blue. The only problem is it doesn't work. It just displays a blank screen until the system boots. Can anyone tell me why? Here is the file :)

I did not edit desc.txt. I only recolored the png's from red to blue with photoshop. I had to convert to indexed mode to change color and then back to indexed mode before saving the files.

In your desc.txt, change 210p to 30p. That's the FPS rate, and anything over 30 frames per second will bog it down, or possibly not play it at all.

I will do that. I didn't edit the desc.txt the 210 fps was how it is by default in the red rage.

bump? anyone?

Both sets of images are 8-bit PNG's indexed color mode exact palette. What is wrong?
changing the framerate has no effect :(

Does nobody else want a Blue red rage???

I looked into your desc.txt again, and it reads:

Code:
480 854 210p 1 0 part0p 0 0 part1
480 854 being the resolution, totally fine. 210p is the frame rate, still think it should belong at 30. Don't exactly know what the rest means, but I'd imagine it has to do with what order to play the folders.

I also pulled up the original boot animation to compare its .txt file and got:

Code:
480 427 30p 1 0 part0p 0 10 part1

Other than the resolution size and frame rate, the only difference is that 10 just before part1. Maybe if you tried that, it could work?

Other than that, it's mundane details or PEBCAC errors.

Did you make sure you put the animation into /data/local/
Did you make sure when archiving you STORED files and not compressed
