Did anyone succeed in making a MBM image with frames.
It would be nice to have a custom animated boot up logo.
And the only way to do so is with a multiframed MBM,at least in theory.

had a bit of a look around and in a way it links back to AAS

I think this is whats needed to make and break down mbms

original post by dazler (thats the link to AAS :P ) here

heres a tutorial

its all a bit hardcore, but if you're prepared to break down a gif file and then rebuild it using bmconv then the results will be worthwhile

[edit] just loaded the mbm to my phone, it animates !!!!
2 problems, cant get it to loop, well it doesnt loop when i view it from images or inbox and on start up only the first frame appears. I'll try a smaller sized mbm and another with different content to see if that helps. time to work on that ryu pic that some1 posted a while back

happy mbming lol

[edit1] err, cant get it to animate on boot up, only the first frame appears, the following frames don't appear :/
any other ideas? hehe

Excelent,it would be great if this works and one could set the animated mbm as background or boot up logo.

quick update incase ppl miss the edit in the reply hehe
i tried different pics in different colour formats but couldnt get the mbm to animate at bootup, only the first frame appears :((

i cant figure out how to use the mbm whizard tho, bmconv on its own seems easier

post your results here after giving it a try, let us know if u can get it to loop, also some1 with a filemanager, can you find the default boot logo here so i can have a gander at it? ty

btw i'm trying this on v3.16 if that matters

hmm.. tried it with 4.39
can get it to loop with aniviewer, so the image should work, but it doesnt animate at startup or as a background image :(

what a pitty...

The mbm in the startup is consisted of 20 images. If you copy it to the PC you will see that it shows as an mbm iwth 20 frames but only black screen. So the format must be very different.

MaleBuffy is right,so even if we make an animated mbm it might not do what we want it to do.

BTW:I made some multiframed mbm's but i cant get them to animate.
I'm sure that they are made of more then one frames because i can view them (The frames) with Xnview.
How do you make them animate?!?!

i just followed the instructions in that tutorial.

get yer bitmaps
create a command file listing the image colourdepth and the image name

then run bmconv telling it the name of your command file and bam, you should have an mbm file that animates when viewed on the phone, but doesnt loop. It may loop in a viewer i'm not sure, i havent tried.

Well,it does not work for me,i made couple of bmp's from frames extracted of Ryu's gif.
Then i folowed the steps as described in the tutorial and made a mbm from those bmp's.
They dont animate but i can see every frame with Xnview.

Correction,the mbm is animated when aniviewer is used.
Too bad we dont have a clue in what way Startup.mbm format is different from a regular mbm.

it doesnt animate for you when viewing the image in your outbox or from images?

It animates on my phone but doesnt loop, does it loop in aniviewer? I received an mms message containing a matrix gif and it animated when viewing from the inbox, that one looped for me, however the ones using bmconv dont loop. Strange stuff hehe.
