What have you got in the way of other details? Total number of frames, any code attached to said active affecting animation (or not). It helps to offer as much information as you can when asking for help, even to the extent of posting a problematic .mfa if you can!

Let me see what you have under "Direction Options". Looping more than 3 frames usually works fine for me.

your problem is that you set it to go back to frame 4. the field where you have the number four is the field that determines what frame the animation loops back to, so seeing as you only have four frames and you set it to go back to frame four, you never see those other frames again. if you set it to 1 then it will work fine.

for future reference, such a feature would be useful for having an idle or standing animation that starts with a flair of some sort and never goes back, such as a knight pulling out his sword.

It's looping back to the last frame. If you want it to repeat 4 times, put the 4 under "repeat" rather than "back to"

Heh, Jon beat me.

Do you want the animation to loop continuously or just 4 times?

If you just want it to loop from beginning to end over and over, put 0 under "Back to" and check the loop box.

1 should work. Sorry, getting this indexes all conflorzled.

Is that what you want to do? Loop infinitely from the first frame to the last frame?

Follow this order. In the repeat box, put 0. Then in the Back To box, put 1. Then check the Loop box.
