    Default Help with ILD files from the server

    Im looking for a few Halloween files or shows for a small party tonight, another member has provided me with the username and password for the server (trust me i will share with no one) but i cant upload the files as i do not have ILD file reading software.

    I am using the Moncha lite (all i could afford at the moment) and have made a couple of shows but would like to add additional spooky images.

    I am new to this but eager to learn so would you be gratefull if you had any ideas of getting some files from the server onto my Moncha, it would make me and my little daughter very happy.

    Thanks

    Your post makes zero sense, I understand your new. If mocha can;t import an ilda which i highly doubt your out of luck. Sounds like you need to learn your software? Because from there read me "Net book support (Asus Eee PC, etc.)
    Standard ILDA file support (*.ild) - you are immediately ready to play content available on Internet"

    You should be able to build shows fine using ild files

    Moncha can import the files, go to a empty cue, go to animation, and there you can add the file and it will show up for that cue

    Thanks, i can get the files to save in 'my documents/pictures' but cannot move them after that, if i try to drag the files from my documents/pictures into the Moncha workspace i get a message telling me that the file connot move as it is already open, i give up ive tried everything im taking up golf instead.

    A standard operations procedure in downloading these files would be appreciated in techno-phobe format, this much i understand.

    1. Open the fpt server
    2. Enter user name and password
    3. Click view/page and open in internet explorer
    4. Open the file you require and click save
    5. The file downloads to 'mydocuments/pictures

    Thats as far as i get, then nothing.

    It may be simple to you guys but it sure is not to me, so if someone out there could please give me a step by step guide to uploading these files to my Moncha software i would be very gratefull and would share half my lottery win this weekend ha ha.
