Okay here is a finished version (feel free to give is a bit of criticism (as long as it is helpful (shading, colour choice etc.))):
(I do admit, I am not %100 sure about the shading around the shoes/legs
I must say though, it's an improvement from the first one =)
(However even i know the first loading screen image i posted was rubbish)

I too get the same problem on my MAC for a Normal Web Based game.

See attached.
I'm honestly suprised this one didn't get caught when they were beta testing, You literally don't have to do any crazy stuff to make it happen. As soon as you go into the screen, it's there.

This part hasn't changed in a very long time - I'd think that with a bunch of people running StencylWorks internally or externally, this could have been caught?

(Still not reproducing here - I'm assuming it's Windows only)
Nup i got the error on my mac (You can tell because in the first image (which i took on my mac) the ui looks slightly different to the windows version), Like bernard has stated it happens only in the normal flash games part of stencylworks. Aswell as bernard too, I am also using a fresh game with no resources loaded
(And yeah mobile games are fine)

Well after playing with the gale thingo i came up with this:
(The legs arn't done yet and he is facing to the right :P)
It's still not very great in my opinion... but that just may be me being negative about my work as always :/
(The shading only seems to be noticable on the hat...)

EDIT: I have just finished a version with a bit more shading on the stomach if you guys wanna see it...

I had a look at PXTone and the page is in Japanese (Or chinese?) So that raises the question of if the thing is in plain old english (there is only so much of google translate i can stand :/) And by that style of music do you mean like in this: http://nitrome.com/games/skywire2 (The guys that make the games on that website are really talented in my opinion =) )
PXTone is in Japanese and English. All you have to do is delete the japanese.ico file in the PXTone directory.

By chiptune music I mean retro game music. Stuff you'd hear on an SNES or NES. If you search for "PXTone music" on Youtube you'll get an idea of what the program does. This type of music is still prominent in the indie games community today.

If you want to make more "high quality" music, then I don't know what free program to recommend other than GarageBand.

After googling about i must say that the stuff it can make is pretty damn awesome. Thanks community people for showing this to me =)

Nope, no ideas. I've never seen the UI do that before. It could be a graphics card issue or a Java runtime issue.

What version of Java do you have?
Java 6, I wouldn't think it would be a graphics card issue since my graphics card has run a lot more graphic intensive games/applications and has done fine (portal 2, tf2 etc.)

Old Questions (from 1.x/2.x) / Re: I'm confused

First off, i'm pretty sure to use the iOS simulator you need a mac and Xcode. Xcode is free from the mac app store or from the downloads part of the apple development page you see when you log into developer.apple.com. So to answer your question, no you do not need a developers license to test on the iOS simulator but yes you do to test on your device.

Just looks really simple, would be great if you posted more examples of the art.
I only did two so i didn't waste my time doing the graphics for the entire game without knowing if they were any good. All else i have for you is my frog/alien avatar thingo which won't be included in any game i make anyway.

You're graphics aren't necessarily bad, just unfinished. Look up some tutorials about shading and textures
on DeviantArt, PixelJoint, or Elfwood and finish them and they will be good.

I second WCoyote's suggestion of using GraphicsGale. It's a really great program and
it's designed for making sprites and animating them.
It looks like a nice program to use, And most of the features you miss out on from not paying for it (except gifs...) are not crucial (I suppose you would be able to find something else to do the conversion of a bunch of pngs to a gif with)

Definitely will be checking up on that one =) (Ah Japanese people fulfilling the stereotype of everything they make being as if it is from the future...)

Meh while your at any suggestions for good music editors? (Garageband says it wants me to download a 3gb bunch of tunes...)
3GB is nothing unless you have some outrageously low badwidth cap. It needs to download the sounds so you can use more than the basic piano. If you want to make chiptune music, PXTone is great.
50gb (You'd be surprised how quickly that goes here :S)

Just out of curiosity... do you use a Mac or Windows? That sounds like you're using a Mac since you're attempting to use GarageBand. You'll need a Windows emulator to use PXTone, which may or may not be available to you. I have a PowerPC Mac, thus I don't do PXTone.

I use Schism Tracker, personally, to make all my music. I use iTunes to convert 'em over to MP3 after exporting them to WAV.
A mac with a partition of windows on it (If i really wanted to i could try boot it and put linux on it too but what is the point)

Well i decided to have a go at making some graphics so i'd like to have some people's honest opinion on them (I admit, they are pretty bad)
If you agree that they are bad, tell me how they can be improved and what image editor i should be using (preferably one that doesn't cost money...especially excessive amounts *cough*photoshop*cough*) (Also i prefer using pixels so also preferably one that has a functionality for pixel editing that goes on some sort of grid) (Mac or Pc idc)
(I probably will end up having to ask if someone can make the graphics for me :P)
