    Re: How to flash pivot animations - BTC

    I dont know man i can do some of this but it took some working out to do on my own part
    there were some places where it was confusing and hard to understand.
    First of all it could be a intro, cause thats good flashers do. You choose!
    what does that mean?????

    i could quote some more stuff but i wont.
    It was kind of like saying " 2+2=4 now you know addition"
    Really though this is a tutorial to teach people.
