I have no idea what this tutorial looks like, but anims are usually triggered and controlled by scripts, so the instructions may be telling you to reset a script in something.  Assuming that you have mod perms for the script, you can restart it in either of two ways: (1) Select the scripted object and use the Build  >> Scripts >> Reset Scripts menu options at the top of your screen or (2) Select the object and use your editor (CTRL + 3), use its Contents tab to open the script, and then click its Reset button.

Without knowing any more about the tutorial, this is the only guess I can make. If you don't have mod perms for the script, it's not going to work.

Hi. I'm trying to get started on the building tutorial called happy hippo.

Could you tell us which Happy Hippo lesson you have problems with? Some of them are quite old so there is a slight chance some script has been broken over the year.  I've sent an IM to Gordon about it. He's in charge of those lessons today so hopefully he can help.

Hi. I'm trying to get started on the building tutorial called happy hippo. The instructions are to click the animation of 'Happy Hippo' and then press reset. I can't find a reset button anywhere. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi Heavensdoor,

The reset button is at the bottom of the left or right boards. It is labeled "Reset To Index". You may have to click it twice; first time resets to the beginning of the current tutorial, if one is active.

After you reset, click the box of the tutorial you want. You can get the supplies (if any) from the center window. I hope that helps.

If you wish, join the Happy Hippsters group (it's free) and you can get help in chat. TY to Chinrey!

Hi,

I updated all of the boards a couple of years ago. I have just gone thru them, and have been unable to find the one that says "animated hippo". There are a coule of hundred frames, so it is likely that I have missed that one. Could you give me more information about what you were working on?  Then I will have more information.  In the meantime-- Please follow Greyhelm's instructions above- they are how you manoever the site- left and right arrows, then in between to reset to go to the next class. 

Thanks for the heads up! I definitely appreciate people letting us know if there are issues!
