I'll tackle this one first, since it seems to have caused the most problems. I will remind everyone that I have said more than once my style of writing often is not the best, and I apologize for the following confusion. My mouse is also having strange double click weirdness going on, but I'll try to correct for that

I really did word that poorly. As Klaus points out, all images need the image container, whether you create it, or you import the image as a control, the container is there. What I *think* is going on is that you are setting this option
, otherwise known (as Klaus and -hh point out), as the "lockloc", preventing the container from resizing, which prevents the image from resizing the container as it spins around.
When I said 'image raw on the card', I did indeed mean not setting the container to a fixed size, by default as far as I can tell, the container is never set to a fixed size no matter how you put the image there, it has to be set through code or properties window. I could be wrong there, though, I have also pointed out that I am a newb as well heh.
Says the zip file is empty or invalid for some reason?
I will apologize for using you as kind of a guinea pig bidge. I was attempting to prove out a theory from this thread
. If it is any consolation, the theory was proven out
It says that it is not a valid zip file because the file is not a zip file, all I did was rename the livecode file with a ".zip" extension. Just above the file are the instructions to use it, but I'll write it again in a different way:
1. download the file to your computer
2. rename the file, removing the ".zip" part of the name
3. in the end, the filename should be "ringClock.livecode" (if it is easier, just copy the part between the quotes, and when renaming paste it, or alternately, rename it to whatever you want as long as the extension says .livecode).
Again, I apologize for putting you on the hamster wheel, but I really was curious as to how well it would work. Forgive me?
