the only way that wouldent work is if you didnt make it as a .gif image, did you save it as a gif or just change the filename to .gif?

Remember it's willz skin we're talking about, He practically re-codes WLM with his skins, You're better off asking him or replacing the msgres.dll with the orignal.
