I normally use a Macbook so I opened this on a friend's PC with Windows XP and there was a permissions error. Is this related to the computer or is it not compatible with XP perhaps? Can someone else try to open it? This sounds really cool!

I was able to view the preview.

Do you have Adobe Flash installed on your friend's computer?

Doh! I tried downloading and running the .exe file instead of clicking on the preview.

Nicely done Sudharaka! I like it :)

Sorry about the .exe file not working. It works fine for me. Didn't you try out the .jar file? Isn't JVM installed in your computer? :)

I am not sure why this happened but I am sure these are false warnings. The methods I used to convert this into .exe, .jar files are standard ones mentioned in the documentation of Scratch. :)

Did you try the .exe, .jar files? Please tell me if you had any problems opening those files. :)

I did try downloading the .exe file, but encountered a log-in requesting my email address, and I admit I aborted. (Lipssealed)

I downloaded and ran the .exe file with no problems...good job, Sudharaka!

I like the randomness of the process, only when the bat touches the next letter in line does it move to its final place in the sequence! :cool:

Thank you for the confirmation. Yes, I wanted to make the process random and I learnt a lot from coding that animation. I don't think it's perfect and I am sure there are many more improvements that could be done, but happy the way it turned out in the end. :)

I remember from my days as a programmer that a program is truly never finished. (Smile)
