Live wallpaper animation force closing when I add more than 10 frames?

Question!

I'm trying to make a simple livewallpaper out of a series of boot animation .pngs...

I'm using

private static final int NUM_RES = 9;
        private final Bitmap[] mPics = new Bitmap[NUM_RES];
        CubeEngine() {
            Resources res = getResources();
            for (int i = 0; i< NUM_RES; i++) {
                int id = res.getIdentifier("boot_0010" + (i + 1), "drawable", "minghai.wallpaper");
                mPics[i] = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(res, id);
            }
        }

9 seems to be the highest I can go. If i set NUM_RES to anything over 9 i get a force close.

All my files are labeled... boot_00101.png boot_00102.png boot_00103.png boot_00104.png boot_00105.png boot_00106.png boot_00107.png boot_00108.png boot_00109.png boot_00110.png boot_00111.png boot_00112.png boot_00113.png boot_00114.png and so on...I have about 50 images im trying to use

Anyone know what I should be doing?

@Yok Thank you so much that did the trick....to an extent, i can't seem to go past 30 I get a memory error. Sorry to ask, but would you happen to know of a more efficient way to simply get an animation like i'm trying to achieve.

When i is 9, the expression "boot_0010" (i 1) evaluates to the string boot_001010; you probably wanted it to be boot_00110.

There is problem with your for loop change :

"boot_0010" (i 1) to "boot_00" (100 (i 1))

Changed loop should look like :

       for (int i = 0; i
