Exactly what I was looking for! I ran through the first part of the Arc tutorials with almost no problems, except: s.addFrame("image.png", "animation", 100); s.addFrame("image2.png", "animation", 1000); s.addFrame("image3.png", "animation2", 1000); At the moment there doesn't seem to be a method without a SoundFX object (in these cases it would always mean an additional "null" as last argument(?)). And the second problem I came across was that the Sprite introduction is a bit spare. While the tutorial tells me how to set up sprites, it doesn't tell how to play them back. It took me some time to find the details, despite the second tutorial and the docs. But nevertheless great work and very newbie-friendly! Regards, HienTau

Hi, sorry. Originally I had it so that these would work, but then I changed it back because it is a pain to write functions like... addFrame(char[], char[], uint, SoundFX) addFrame(char[], char[], uint) addFrame(char[], char[]) Anyways its fixed now.
 And the second problem I came across was that the Sprite introduction is 
 a bit spare. While the tutorial tells me how to set up sprites, it 
 doesn't tell how to play them back. It took me some time to find the 
 details, despite the second tutorial and the docs.

I'll try to fix this once I get the time.
 
 But nevertheless great work and very newbie-friendly!
