F.A.Q.
Q: Does this program work on Windows XP?
A: Yes, it works, but you will need the Service Pack 3 update and Microsoft .NET Framework 4. Some other bugs may occur on Windows XP that won't be seen on later Windows versions (Vista; 7; 8)
Q: Why the form flickers when it's being resized?
A: On slower computers, high-resolution background images can cause flickering. Set the background to some of the built-in gradients, or your own gradient, or a solid color.
Q: Boot Animation Factory doesn't even start. Help!
A: Please make sure your operating system is supported, and you have Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is installed on your computer.
Q: I get an error. Help please!
A: Please explain the error you get, or send an error report. I will fix any error if it's code-related as soon as possible.

hello Aleksander,

ive been looking at your applications recently and have tried to install the boot animation creator, previewer and this animation factory. i managed to get the creator to work only once and since then i keep getting this application error message for each of your three applications

"the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). click on ok to terminate the application."

i dont know whether this is a problem with my pc or with the software, im not a dev at all.

can you please help, i really like the idea and look of your applications.

thank you

i did a quick google after reading your last post and found that 4 was the latest. i had installed 2 when i first found the creator (as requested in the op as requirements) but now i found the factory which looks a lot better and a complete package, i'll get this sorted.

thanx again

    New Boot Animation Factory On The Way

    I've been quiet for some time now, but I've come out of the bear cave so I can tell you the good news. Boot Animation Factory is getting updated to version 2! The new Boot Animation Factory will be available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, since it's been reworked in Java. Sounds exciting, right? The program is not done, I'm working really hard on it in my free time. But I'm doing good, which means it will be up soon. Oh, here's a teaser screenshot :eek:
    kXFXQnk.png


    For your information, the old Boot Animation Factory will still be available after the new version is out. The program on the image is bound to be changed, this is not the final user interface.

    Teaser :D

    Two Androids walk into a bar, and they see a third one coming out of a toolbox... Sounds familiar? It will sound even more familiar in the next few days :D
    EDIT: Tomorrow is the big day. :D
