I can't animate my crystal ball

My app crashes every time I run the simulator. This link is a picture of my viewController.m file:


This is my main storyboard and the error I get:


What's wrong with my code and storyboard? Thank you.

1) can you post the code to the forums from your view controller and model files? Here's how to format it

2) The unrecognized selector could be a few things. Something that needs to stay around may be getting released by ARC, you could be trying to send a method to a class that doesn't support it, etc.

If you post the actual code it will be easier for us to help you out.

Why does it say [UILabel setAnimationImages:] in the console output? Are you trying to set the animation images array to the label or to the background UIImageView.

If you can post your project files to Dropbox or some place else I'll have a look and let you know.
