Something is wrong with your PC, or you're doing something wrong. Honestly, if you see ads you're doing something wrong, lol. That's a nerd joke. Here you go... http://www.mediafire.com/downl.....dTools.zip

Hi all. Trying my first attempt at a Theme and I keep getting stuck at the Compiler. Every time I try to compile i get the tmp folder with the bg.dae file instead the raf file. I have windows 7 64bit with Photoshop CS6 using 14 frames to make into a full animated theme. Been digging around the forums but every time I think I found the answer I'm stuck back at square 1. My efforts thus far:

Uninstalled/reinstalled up to "4.0" 3 times.
Made sure a file wasn't missing
Checked that the xml path files were correct
Removed all "extra" spaces from the code
Tried using someone elses Theme folder for the icons
Tried another .js/.xml code
Tried a different bg.dae file

It's probably something stupid but I'm Stumped. Any advice?

@squishy83 - You can't make a Animated Theme with the PS3 Theme Builder.
Go to page 1 of this thread and start fresh. Follow the tutorial. It will steer you in the right direction Smile

@uLtRaMa6nEt1c - I only used that for the icons/buttons. At this point I've just ditched those tho cause I can't get a raf file

@squishy83 - Read through this thread too. A few people had problems at first that were solved with simple solutions. There are many parts of the process that can go wrong, so it can be hard to pinpoint the problem without listing the whole process.

Got a raf, and the rest went smoothly. I completely deleted my compilers and downloaded them fresh, suddenly it worked. Not sure if I somehow got a older version or if the files got corrupted somehow. Now that I know it works I can go back and fix it up the way I had intended.

@uLtRaMa6nEt1c โ€“ I had, that's why I posted. The closest scenario to mine was fixed by removing spaces from the Directory path. However I already had the exe & animatedfull folders directly in C:

You have to edit the "name" in the theme's XML file. Don't use characters like "&" and similar characters.
