Hi, Thanks for your reply. Yes im pretty sure. i installed another demo from the gallery Colussus with no labels-aa by Robbo980, i found that it did not work 100%, but loved some of the animations from that so ported several from there to the standard demo. A playlist of about 10 animations., but found everytime it would come to one of the original animations, which was fireworks in this case, it would play fine but stick on that animation. I removed all of them and started to add them back one by one. I found the issue to be within this section.
start = millis();
end = start + SHORT_LOOP_COUNT;
current = millis();
} while (current <= end);
all of the animations have the same delays and millis commands. if i removed any of the commands to millis it cured the problem, which i have done on 2 of the animations and it works fine, i have tried with my very poor coding to remove it from this animation and it refuses to work after. so im stuck. i will post a link to my full version shortly
